Apple Watch Orientation

I wear my Apple Watch on my left wrist. Instead of the digital crown on the right side, I turned it the other way around. Its unconventional but please hear me out.
The mic and speaker are on the opposite side of the Digital Crown. When wearing it the conventional way, I have to put my arm across my mouth to speak or to raise my arm higher so that the speaker is at the same height as my ear. It looks funny and odd because of the way I hold out my arm.
By turning the Watch around, I can speak and listen at a natural arm position - as though I’m resting my chin at my knuckle, in a thinking man posture. In this position, the mic is just right ubderneath my mouth and the speaker will blast upwards to my ear. I can just speak and listen to the Watch in a natural way.

note: I need to swap the strap so that it is the way it was. I don't have to learn new way of wearing the watch.

Wisdom

In our daily life, we need a lot of wisdom because we made a lot of decisions. Wisdom allow us to make the right decision. But oft times, we did not exercise the right wisdom and make a wrong judgement. This is where fortune comes in. Or a high life state to handle the erred decision. These two things - wisdom to decide and a high life state or fortune to handle a wrong decision, these are stuff that we pray for every day when we chant in front of the Gohonzon.

Case in point today - super heavy rain on a Friday evening. I was on my way to father in law's house in Kota Damansara to collect dinner. I used the Persiaran Surian way - and if you recalled a few months back, there were viral videos and photos showing flash flood around the Pelangi Utama condominiums. And I was there today. Some cars decided to make a U-turn, going into the One Club to escape. I was trying to decide if I should make a U turn or should I continue. My wisdom failed me and I decided to go ahead - I was obser…

How durable is the Apple Watch Series 3?

I recently bought a Apple Watch Series 3, Nike+ edition and I am pretty pleased with it. While the battery is not as long lasting as my Pebble watch (5 day vs 2 days for the Apple), the brightness of the OLED screen, the heart-beat sensor, the size and how well it works with the rest of Apple devices (Mac, iPhone, Airpods) made this a must-have if you are heavily into the Apple gated garden. One thing I was extremely worried about is how durable is the aluminium body? I have seen MacBook Air or iPads get dented over a drop. Imagine a watch on your hand which is super exposed to hitting doors, tables, walls .. and having a dented aluminium watch body is glaringly ugly on the wrist.
Well, it seems I might not have to worry so much because it is pretty durable:
From iMore:
First, Apple has chosen to use a harder aluminum alloy — 7000 series. While the standard 6000 series aluminum is plenty strong for a watch, 7000 series aluminum offers roughly double the hardness and twice the tensile s…
