I went to Techduology LIVE 2013 last Saturday and walked away with nothing 🙁 Well, at least I walked away with some nice pictures 🙂

If you never heard of Techduology before, it is a show on YouTube hosted by Jason Goh aka smashpOp and also Ben from Fly FM where they talk about the latest and trendiest technology out there every week. Every year end when it’s close to Christmas, they will take the show to the audience and give away gazillion goodies where it will make you feel like Santa Clause actually does exists.

And every year, they will invite different guests to go on the show and this year, they have invited the well known stand-up comedian Kuah Jenhan.

I’ve been to Techduology LIVE continuously for 3 years now and year after year they are giving away bigger and better prizes including the latest Nokia smart phones, headphones, phone cases, gadgets and other countless goodies.

And when I say countless goodies, I really mean it. Lumia phones, Casetagrams, Sony headphones, Jabra wireless speakers, Muku Labs Shuttr, Puma goodies, free stay at G Hotel Penang, AWSM t-shirts and many more. Does it make you salivating yet? Well they certainly made me.

Okay, so this is the part where I’m suppose to write something and hopefully I will stand a chance to win the biggest prize of the show.

So what is there for me to win? Huge 6-inch 367ppi screen, 20-megapixel PureView camera with a Carl Zeiss lens, oh boy the new Nokia Lumia 1520 is definitely a catch. I would die for the camera feature alone.

Picture taken from The Verge.

The Lumia 1520 is not only a beauty on the outside, but also a beast on the inside. Packed with quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in memory, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, 4G LTE and powered by Windows Phone, Nokia has really stepped up to their game in recent years.

Well, even if I didn’t get anything, I definitely had fun at the live show. Free food and coffee from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, tech talks, games and gadgets giveaway, what is there not to be liked?

Techduology LIVE 2013 has definitely put a perfect ending to the season of the show and whatever they are brewing for the next season, it certainly going to be awesome.

I have abandoned my blog for long enough and I thought it is time to do something. So I cleaned up the design a bit, fixed some JavaScript errors and wrote this post.

Time constrain is a bitch. Although I wish to blog more often but blogging just take too much time off my hands. So instead of taking the time to put up all my thoughts, pictures and videos on my blog, I turned to micro-blogging platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram instead.

Until recently, when I received the domain renewal notice from my hosting company, I decided not to renew my hosting and shutdown this blog for good.

Ok I was just kidding. Hahaha… Did I surprise you? Just trying to pull a belated April-fool joke :p I will never throw this 5-year-old baby out the window just like that.

The blog is here to stay, but what should I do with it next? Keep it vacant as it is and update 3 times a year and making promises to update more often which I know I can never keep?

Well, I have no idea either. I was thinking to turn this blog into something else maybe a Tumblr blog or something more advanced like an automated tweets and Instagram compilation blog. But I guess that will take quite a lot of time to implement too. Oh well.

So until I figure out what to do next, there will be nothing much to see here. Or you have better ideas? Do let me know.

Till next time, ciao.

Oh ya, there’s one more thing. Do follow me on Twitter or Instagram for more updates. Just search for my username “denslee” 🙂

Vietnam Impression

Wednesday

Frankly, I know nothing about Vietnam before this. I thought it would be less developed and majority of the people still living in poverty.

But man I was proven so wrong after the 5-day trip to Ho Chi Minh City (the capital of Vietnam) in early November 2011 with Peter and Sophea.

This post is about my first impression of Vietnam in general, I’ll post my travelogue soon.

HCMC (short for Ho Chi Minh City) is a big city which I didn’t expect it to be that big with so many skyscrapers.

There are several things I found it interesting in HCMC and the first thing that had us jaw-dropped when we arrived at the city was of course, the infamous traffic situation.

The amount of motorcycles on the road was just incredible. How they dishonour the traffic lights, criss-crossing among each other while honking all the way was really an eye-opening scene.

Another interesting phenomenon is how Vietnamese love their coffee.

Drinking coffee is like their culture, their identity and their only reason to continue living. Okay maybe not to that extend.

But their love for coffee is definitely undeniable. You will see people selling and drinking coffee at every sidewalk all day long. When Vietnamese talk about their coffee, their eyes sparkle. If they can put coffee beans on their national flag, I bet they would.

So what is so special about their coffee? The coffee has some special roasted taste and it tastes really really kao (thick) it’s almost like the espresso of the espresso.

When added with some condensed milk and lots and lots of ice (usually how they drink it), the taste is just superb and satisfying!

It took me a few try to get used to the taste of the coffee and the sweetness they used to drink, but once you get used to it, you will definitely ask for more.

Another thing that caught me by surprise in HCMC is the number of luxury brand stores they have there.

Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Versace, Jimmy Choo and Burberry just to mention a few. And surprisingly, their prices are so much cheaper than Malaysia, almost by half! Too bad even cheaper by half I still can’t afford a single item from those places.

So this is it, my initial impression of Vietnam in general. The city is developing and the people are progressing.

I’ll post my travelogue from day 1 to 5 soon where we found out the painful history of the Vietnamese people and a number of incidents that caught us off guard including how I lost and found my precious belonging.

Stay tuned.
