Everybody Got Sick

I spread the virus/bacteria to wife and baby, now both of them also sick, good thing they recover fast, baby recover the fastest, young person seems to have much stronger immune system and that is strange. Another good thing is that today is public holiday so no need to work.

Maybe next time I sick I check-in to a hotel or something, should have a hotel for sick people to choose to be isolated from others so as not to spread the sickness around.

Sick Today

Today thought want to go somewhere, end up getting sick, have a bad headache and cough, wonder how I got the virus/bacteria, maybe because I was caught in the rain yesterday.

Anyway just want to share that if you have a bad cough, Robitussin is the best home remedy, the Wood's cough syrup is not bad but only good for minor irritation. Also tried the pi pa gao which is completely useless, it's like eating sugar. I only took one sip of Robitussin and now I feel so much better.

Yeah! Long Weekend!

Been looking forward to this long weekend, even though I have no special plan in mind but still feels great to be able to rest, get away from the work for a while.

So tomorrow maybe we will drop by Pasir Ris, I heard from my colleague it looks completely different now, the resorts have been replaced with hotels and now they have level 2 shopping areas. Last time I went was so long ago, can't even remember when.

Singapore develop at such a super fast pace, never go a place for too long next time you go totally different, just look at the Sim Lim Square area, now look totally different. Even the Outram Park area also totally changed.

Sometimes feel a bit sad that the places that I went to when I was younger are now gone, a bit scary also.

This Year Bonus and Increment Not Bad

Bonus get 2.27 months, increment is 2.94%, not a lot but better than last year.

Anyway don't know what to do with this extra money, maybe just leave it in bank, don't want to buy stocks, don't want to buy laptop, at first thought want to get an aftershock laptop, end up find it kind of wasteful since I already got a desktop which is quite decent.

Nvidia ShadowPlay is Great

The beauty of this software is that it uses the graphics card to do the recording, so when I game and record at the same time I don't feel any lag at all.

It comes with the GeForce Experience software, just press alt+z to open the options in-game.

Can check out this video that I recorded, video quality is good and smooth.

This link for the system requirements.

I'm using GTX 960 and it's working fine.

Thinking of Getting a Laptop

Custom-built my desktop in 2009, until now almost 8 years, in between changed a few graphics card and upgraded ram, I think also upgraded hard-disk once.

My current spec

Motherboard: Gigabyte P55M-UD2
Processor: Intel i5 750 @ 2.66GHz
Memory: 8GB DDR3 @ 1333MHz
Graphics: GTX 960 2GB
Display: Samsung SyncMaster 2494HS
Storage: 500GB HDD

The rest not really worth mentioning.

Actually my desktop still serves me well but problem is it's too big, it's a mid tower so the CPU, monitor, keyboard and mouse takes up my whole table, and my CPU sometimes also a bit siao siao cannot start, have to off then on once or twice then can start, think it's the motherboard problem.

Anyway I'm looking at the Aftershock S-15, now got promotion seems like very value for money, if pay cash is $2485.


I also checked out Alienware for the same spec, it cost $3400+, almost $1000 difference!

Also looked at the Razer Blade, screen is smaller at 14", seems like no G-Sync, storage only SSD, Windows don't know whether it's home or professional version, with the 256 SSD is $2740+, with 512 SSD is $3049+.

I think Alienware and Razer is more like branded goods, pay more for the brand name.

Also took a look at the Origin PC, also another branded goods, cost between $3600-$3800+ for around similar spec, wah piang, I think only carrot head will buy.

Mitsubishi Starmex So Easy to Clean

Bought the aircon in 2014, so far very happy with it because it is cold and very easy to clean. Today just cleaned and looked back, realized so fast 3 years already.

Cleaning just need to remove filter and spray, then the vane part can easily detach and just clean with wet tissues. Just need to clean about every 2-3 months or when the filter start to get too thick with dust (can feel it because aircon will be less cold than usual).

I don't call for the casual servicing, find it useless and waste of money, the only useful service is the chemical overhaul, but only need to do every 1.5 to 2 years, depending on how heavy the usage.

Indian Food Seller Seems more Generous

One packet of curry chicken briyani rice is $5.50, may seem more expensive but the piece of chicken is actually quite big, like 1/4 of a chicken, the briyani rice also large serving, one person can eat two times. $5.50 divided by 2 is $2.75.

Compared to chinese economical rice, one packet can range from $3.50 to $5 or $6 if you choose fish. Let's say $5.50 same as indian food, choose fish and two veggies, the fish miserably small piece, veggies also miserably little, rice also quite little, eat one time also not enough. Some bastard stalls add rice still charge $0.20. Totally not economical at all.

But of course if go to old estate hawker centres, the old school chinese economical rice the best, choose fish max is $4, some more the fish is a whole fish, don't choose fish $2.50 also have. Food court really too profit-oriented, or rent too high, pass the cost to consumers, never mind, serving so miserable, might as well just eat indian food.

Neck Pain since Weekend

Last Saturday morning woke up with a pain on my neck and upper back area, wonder what happened, as if somebody karate-kicked my neck while I was sleeping. Today still never recover, most probably because yesterday never sleep well.

Middle of the night somebody above was knocking something, must be crazy, 3 or 4 am don't know knock what, really crazy family. Then my wife woke me up a few times, she said my snoring scared the baby, what the heck, I think snore also because of the neck pain. Today woke up feeling super stoned, took MC. Weekend sometimes also cannot rest properly, jia lat.

Then just recall last Saturday night above family ki siao, think also 3 or 4 am, they were fighting fiercely, slamming stuff, yelling loudly, even the neighbour beside me also wake up, can hear the uncle complaining. Complain to HDB has proven to be useless, thinking of call police but most likely police also lan lan refer us to HDB, back to square one. This type of problem difficult to solve, either I leave or they leave. Sometimes in my mind I wishing a big fire burn down their house with their family, really evil lol.

Magnolia Coconut Ice Cream with Kellogg's Frosties

Been wanting to try this, it goes well together, actually vanilla ice cream also can, could be better.

Another can try is Nestle Honey Gold Flakes, but I think might not be so nice.
