Black Shark 3 Review

I have only one word “Stunning”.

I have been a Samsung Note, Huawei, Apple, OPPO user lately. In summary all has their strengths and weaknesses. But when it comes to an all balance phone for work, games, performance, camera, movie watching… Always there is something not enough.

I used to think handy, slim and powerful phone. But the fact is you cannot have the best of both world. Eventually I decided to try get a Black Shark 3 for during 7-7 sales from Lazada. I got a pretty good deal from it.

First, if to point something I don’t like. Perhaps will be the camera. I believe Black Shark could do a little more in just the light capturing. The phone will be almost brilliant. I just need a balance camera.

As for the performance, the phone did really well with only the 8GB Ram model running on DDR 4. But any model above all are DDR 5. So far in term of day to day Microsoft Office, Adobe, Web performance. I find almost zero lag. Holding the phone is good but not perfect.

As for entertainment use, when you switch on 90 Hz of refresh rate, swithing on DSP and you find an almost monster roar performance. But of course you drain a little more battery of the day.

I particular like the design in gaming as it is carefully planned while you are playing. What will be the one touch function can lead to shutting off disturbing message and control of all gaming features.

Of all, don’t you agree the best thing is the speaker of smart phone should be facing you instead of side? While you playing game, watching YouTube, Netflix and so on. Mic with background noise reduction is another detail of designing not just a phone but something very special with heart.

Into accessories, one thing I need to mention is the fun cooler. Amazingly icy cool within seconds and immediately can reduce the heat of the phone.

Needless to say. The price of the phone probably half or even one third of an IPhone, Samsung or even OPPO high end phone.

I seldom review a phone and I think this is one of the phone that kick me up to sky. If got money to spare is a must own!!

Taiwan Long Chuan Beer

After dine in allowed, I visited one of mine favourite Taiwanese restaurant. Coincidently seen this beer. Of course crawing to taste the beer.

To the eye – Darker Yellow Gold with mild gas bubbles. To the nose very light mild malty aroma.  To the tongue feel like pilsner but light spicy and hoppy, mild crispy and mild bitter. After taste feel cooling with also very light sour.

Overall a blonde like lager which is easy to drink and go with any food. But not too much character for Malaysian especially our food culture more intense. One quick note is white rice is used as ingredients.

Just my personal perception!

Vespa Sprint 150 S – Malaysia 350

The new Vespa Sprint 150 S added to our portfolio. Indeed my first experience and I found that it is easy to ride. Not as a super bike but the power is just nice for a ride in the city.

I wouldn’t believe it feels like sporty bike if not seen from myself.

It has compartment big enough to carry a lot of stuff in just a 130kg body weight design.

Front center of the seat come with a hook and I do think this design is practical in small town when you pack a coffee or buying fruits that need a handy hanger.

This full automatic bike is just like a iron horse where you can go around and enjoy a scenic ride. Overall a total different experience.

Tokyo Summer 2019

It has been sometimes since we last update. A truly busy months and finally I have decided to go for a short break to my favorite destination – Tokyo.

Some new places and new things to do really made this trip unforgettable. Firstly, Viewing Shibuya crossing from the top of Magnet rooftop deck. Yes indeed the view is different and make more sense to feel the crossing in a bird eye view.

We have also visited a local favorite of grill lamp store in Shinjuku. It is true that I have not eaten any lamp that is so juicy before. You need to reserve the table or else you got to wait easily more than an hour. It is at basement level 3 entrance at Uniqlo ground floor.

I did not go to Kyoto this time but understand there is something similar in Tokyo. It is at the temple of Nezu Shrine. Great walking from Nippori station with lots of great food and coffee along.

I also visited showroom of casio opposite Tokyo station. But I think those models are too new for me to experience. I found that G factory in Malaysia and Singapore has more models than them.

I have also visited a store that have fun to bid you A5 Wagyu. The great things in Japan is always great food, great beers and many fun stuff.

Someone pointed me to this customize shoes offered by White Ashley of Converse. My last Converse was probably 20 years ago. This is something unique that you can customize your shoes with reasonable price.

I am delighted that I can tried Okinawa Ice Cream as it is just located near my hotel at Ebisu.

Perhaps the biggest surprise it the Disney land. I have been through HK and Paris Disneyland. But Tokyo Disney is much fun and unforgettable. The passionate staff in Disney is also a unique point.

Visited Tokyo metropolitan government tower for the scenery of whole Tokyo. It is free and you can get great crafted beer at the viewing floor and enjoy.

Footie went to Asakusa again a d this time with a twins! They are magnet and easily got lots of people like to take photo with them.

Lots of small shop for fashion a d foods. We found our favourite shop Paris Miki in Tokyo and tried Lobster roll by the street.

Tokyo is always a city that you can’t fully explore even with a few trips. Tokyo remained rank no 1 in my heart.

Casio Rangeman standard – Joe Poh

Been having a few Casio watches and lately added Rangeman basic standard version. A very clean dial and I think is a good unit that can use for many outdoor activities. Particular trekking and camping.

Triple sensors with easy to operate functions. World clock with multi band 6 self adjust clock for accuracy. Though it is not available in Malaysia. But I did read some forums sometimes you may get a sync from atomic clock of Japan.

I like the colour matching for the design and it is really feel like a masculine device with you for outdoor. Overall a great standard version.

1st G-Shock reproduced – Project Team

I thought initially is a little out of fashion. However, this 35 anniversary reproduced the 1st G-Shock model by Project Team really fast becoming my favourite.

It is like a minimalistic design. In fact not much function beside of normal stop watch. But the dial is so easy to read. With silver reflective surface further outstand this vintage design.

Plated with Gold with a huge 35 given a statement that I love it so much. With the weight is just right on my wrist. It is one of my favourite practical watch of all time.
