A tribute to Paul Walker and it's a jolly good one too. It's amazing how games can make these nowadays. Astounding! Rip Paul Walker :')

Used to be a nice place for our school's Indian and Pakistani students to play their favorite sport, cricket. Sadly, it's government's land and they are no longer allowed to set foot into it. What used to be a happy cheerful atmosphere here has now gone quiet.

Got off my bus stop today and just decided to enjoy the ocean breeze a little :) It sure was relaxing after a slow day at school.

These a-Jays manufacturers sure spend a huge amount of time designing  their earphones AND packaging. They are probably the best looking earphones I've ever seen and their packaging are top notch. Everything from the box to the insides, everything felt premium to the touch.

Fortunately, the audio quality matches. They sound great and are quite comfortable in the ears. The ear tips fit well. My favorite feature is the remote feature that allows you to adjust volume, change tracks, much like Apple built earphones. The buttons were definitely clicky and each press was very satisfactory and are very responsive. 

Great earphones! :D Loved their a-Jays Four, and I love their Five.

Xperia Phones  - 
 
And so, my Xperia Z3 managed to let water leak in, even when I had all the flaps sealed and I triple checked. It's funny that my phone worked but the screen would not light up. I knew the phone was working because when I pressed and held the camera shutter key, I can hear the camera being activated with their Cyber-shot tune.

What happened was, when I took it to the toilet to wash off my greasy fingerprints, I filled up my basin and put it into the water. When I was done, the phone was working and I even went to music player to play some loud music to clear the speakers and when I wanted to change songs a couple of minutes later, my screen would not light up. 

This is quite disappointing since my Z3 Tablet Compact had NO issues and I've done similar wash with the tablet more than 5 times already. This was the first time for the phone and it just died like that. Sent it back to Sony's repair center and I had to deposit $150 first since I didn't have my warranty. At first, I was told to wait 3-4 weeks since they had no stock (I don't know why they need stock to repair). When I was home at night after hanging out with some friends, they called me and said I can collect my phone tomorrow.

Thought I'd just post this here for you to know that not all Sony's phones are waterproof. It's quite sad, since waterproofing is their key selling points and they advertise it so much. I don't really blame them though. Every manufacturers has their defect units. I'm just their willing to repair it for me for free, under my warranty.

"When we are unable to find tranquility within ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere." - Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Great quote, in my opinion. I remember I once heard from a documentary of parkour, the narrator said, "If you can master your body completely, you can master anything".

The "Walkman" app has finally been replaced by the "Music" app on my Xperia Z3 (Android 5.0.2). Basically, it's just a name change, guys, so don't worry. No difference in the audio quality department. All settings remains the same. What changed, is actually the player as you can see. A much better looking design and also features Google's Material Design animations. Loving the update :)

I'm not sure if I'm late in getting this or not, but I thought I'd just share it :) Enjoy!

After dinner last night, I roamed around myself, exploring around. I held my camera at all times in case anything interesting happens or I come across an opportunity to take a good shot. It was quite fun walking around alone. It gives you the time to actually just relax and try to be more creative. Photography really takes my mind off things.

Introduction
Hello! I'm a Chinese teenage boy born in Malaysia but currently living in Hong Kong. I enjoy making new friends. My current interests are photography. I'm hoping to pursue the life of a professional photographer. When I'm bored, I would sometimes draw, do a bit of cardistry or play video games on my PS4. I'm also an editor for a tech site, called Droid-Now.

I enjoy playing badminton a lot. Slowly learning how to play a guitar from my friends. Enjoying life alone again. Loves a fun life of freedom.

Extremely horrible service! Takes forever for my food and drinks to arrive. Waiters are trained to be blind and move slow as f*ck.

It's a nice place, food is good and so are the drinks. The German sausages are delicious and so are their tomato soup! A little pricey, but if you go for their buffet, it's much more worth it :)

The food used to be better, it's still good, just not as good as before. Drinks are good and the prices are reasonable. Worth a shot, guys! Free WiFi makes it even better :D

Great place to relax. Fresh air, quiet and peaceful, perfect place to BBQ during the winter. If you plan to go during Summer, buy yourself a water gun there at low prices and keep each other cool and have some fun!
