Blog: A grab-bag blog post about our coming trip to Ho Chi Minh city; my bonsai is alive; Swiss chard is tasty; and a few transport-related pictures.

We're going to Ho Chi Minh city in a few days (yes, Golden Week is approaching). Been there once before, but it was years ago. Any recommendations for places to eat? We have a few places listed but the more to choose from the better.

Also, recommendation for a cooking school - someplace with half-day classes? We went to "Hanoi Cooking Centre" in Hanoi last year and it was the highlight of that trip.

Anyone from +Pebble willing to help Sören out?
I really want to love the Pebble Steel but my watch is essentially useless in its current state (disconnects literally every two minutes) and I'm afraid the same can be said about +Pebble  customer service.

If anyone knows how to get in touch with actual humans working for Pebble, could you ask them if they plan to do anything about the support cases I've registered? Case 225580 and 210895 - nothing has happened. For 210895 they've just told me to wait for an update and then ignored me. 225580 has been completely ignored. Both are about the fact that my Pebble Steel is a $249 paperweight.

I waited so damn long for this watch and it's great when it works. Sadly, an unreliable (to put it mildly) smartwatch is about as useful as a car that will sometimes start in the morning. Then when you combine that with a complete lack of customer service, I've reached a point where I'd rather just get my money back.

This is quite fun. The Unabomber for FORTH is interesting; I have to admit I still have a soft spot in my heart for that language.

Ever wonder how Android actually separates data from tethered devices on one hand, and data from the phone itself on the other? And did you ever want to fix that on your rooted device? Here's the what, why and how.

Protip: when you wrap up and throw away your household waste, you might want to avoid this particular shape. Your neighbours and the local police alike may get worried.

One year on, and my bonsai is still alive; that was the main goal for the first year. And it's not only alive, but has actually grown a bit.

I cut short the largest bud a few weeks ago (I think I'm supposed to do that), and soon got two new small branches coming off the trunk. Time to start worrying how to shape it into an actual bonsai...

The picture didn't come out too well, by the way; I wanted to avoid burned-out highlights in the pot, but the diffusion gives the plant a too-flat appearance.

I don't know... Some people write that wiring should happen in autumn, since the branches grow fast right now. On the other hand, it seems easier to shape things now than later.

Janne. In Osaka.
From Sweden, but I've been living in Osaka for nine years. I've worked in cognitive science, neuroscience and robotics.

I am affiliated with Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, but placed at the RIKEN Advanced Institute of Computing Science in Kobe, where I work on a project to model the subcortical motor-related areas in order to better understand the physiological effects of Parkinsons disease.

Very good Thai restaurant, less adapted to Japanese taste than most. The seating is not terribly comfortable, though, and the bathroom is Japanese style only.

Good, solid chain cafe. Second floor is open and spacious with lots of small tables. Usually not crowded, so it's a good spot for working or studying.

My favourite omuraisu restaurant. The place is in a slightly seedy part of Namba, south of Amemura on the "wrong" side of Midosuji avenue, but the restaurant itself has a very calm, pleasant and slightly old-fashioned vibe that feels more high-class than you'd expect from an omuraisu place. Plenty of tourists; on one hand you won't feel out of place as a visitor (and there's English menus available too), but on the other, you are as likely to rub shoulders with a fellow tourist as with a local. Some people dislike it, others are comforted by it of course. The omuraisu itself is very, very good. I've had several varieties and they've all been tasty. I especially like the mushroom-sauce variants. Plenty of food, but there's set meals and a fair assortment of side dishes to pick from as well if you want (fried shrimp always goes well).

Pleasant ramen place with traditional decor but a modern take on the food. The soup is very thick with more than a hint of sweetness. The noodles are pleasantly chewy. Japanese-style toilet.

Good vietnamese food. The lunches, especially, are well worth it. The basement in an old building can feel just a little like a dining hall at times, but the cool and dim atmosphere is very welcome on hot summer days.
