Blog from anywhere with BlogPress

This is a test posting from my iPhone using BlogPress application.

So far this application is a jiffy to use. Everything is self explanatory and easy to use.

Previously I've posted an entry on my notebook also from iPhone but that is through the secret e-mail. Some key items such as labels and multiple photos support are mising from the e-mailing method.

By using BlogPress I can manage and edit posts, add labels, photos, and etc. Additional features which would make this application better are landscape authoring, spell check, geotag and url link. Other than that, this app really makes mobile blogging easier.

What's Your Poison?

If you like acoustic music, the you'll definitely like this band; Boyce Avenue. Stumbled upon while searching for guitar lessons in YouTube, I've been an avid listener since. The band does cover songs of popular hits which some to me sounded much more better than the original singer.

Boyce Avenue, a Florida-based band popular for its strong acoustic roots and constant drive toward a melody- and harmony-driven rock sound, consists of the three brothers Alejandro, Fabian, and Daniel Manzano, and Stephen Hatker. The band first came together in 2000, when Alejandro (lead vocals, guitar, piano) and Fabian (guitar, vocals), then 14 and 16 years old, respectively, started playing guitar. ~ Boyce Avenue Official Website ~

Don't let the boy band look deceive you, the lead singer Alejandro (second from right) has a strong, grunge vocals which is well suited for acoustics paired with basic instruments; it is truly something refreshing to hear. Current favorites includes the following cover songs:

1. The Freshman - the verve
2. Viva La Vida - coldplay
3. With You - chris brown
4. Don't Look Back in Anger - oasis
5. Closer - ne-yo

You can find out more about the band at their official website or listen straight at their YouTube channel. They do sell their cover albums in iTunes store, however it is currently unavailable in Malaysia. But there is an alternative to download a slighty lower quality mp3 ripped from their official YouTube videos from this site. Happy listening :)

nyummy.. Japanese Miniature Chili Crabs

Been craving this snack for months.. search almost all major supermarket and japanese speciallity store from Ampang, KLCC, PJ and finally today found at The Garden's Cold Storage. 

These tiny critters, measuring not more than an inch packs mouthful of flavor. Everything could be consumed, from the tiny legs, claws and even the whole body shell. To discribe the taste, easiest to explain; it taste similar to the chili ikan bilis from Pangkor. A pack of 200 grams costs RM 14. Why not give it a try? It's nice.

Burrpp.. excuse me.. but I'm full from eating a dozen of this crab :)

Get The Right Gear

I’d always believe that having a proper gear in any line of work is necessary to do things efficiently, less effort to get it right and more focused on the task at hand. Growing up in a house of five brothers, we had a fair share of DIY projects, may it be motoring, gardening, carpentry and plumbing amongst others. One thing in common among all those projects, we love tools; with the proper and quality tools tasks becomes less of a burden and you’ve work smarter.

Same should go to the men and women who are protecting our country round the clock; the police, military, fire brigade and other agencies. Their gear should be up to date, spick and spank; as proper gear to them could mean life or death. We always see in the movies, especially from Hollywood like; SWAT, Blackhawk Down or reality TV police videos, they all have the proper tools.

Not only have they made them more agile, but it keeps them well protected too. These are top of the line equipment, purpose build to keep up with ever demanding job which you think is off limits for civilians.
