Doing begins by believing

I just realize this recently: I tend to do something if I think it is possible. If i don’t think it is possible, i’ll keep a backlog of it but i’ll probably won’t do it anytime soon. Just keeping it in the horizon - not sure when i’ll do it. A very clear example for...

New Macbook Powered by M1 Chip

New Macbook Powered by M1 Chip

I can safely say that I lean toward the fanboy side given the amount of Apple product that I use, but i was VERY skeptical about this new line of macbooks with Apple-built processor dubbed with M1 chip. However when the reviews came out with M1 performs better even...

Upgrading Graphic Card for Gaming PC

I recently updated graphic card of my gaming PC which i built five years ago-ish. The PC was built with “i want it to run any game” goal in mind but it seems like the spec is out of date it wasn’t capable to run two games i want to play recently: Horizon Zero Dawn and...

Five stages of house

Five stages of house

It takes sometime to understand that many things in life won’t arrive as you wish it at once. They come in stages instead. For example, your first job won’t be your dream job. It is most likely requires couple of job-change until you land on that dream job of yours....

Reliable Partner

Reliable Partner

A really important factor that one has to seriously consider when picking up partner: how reliable your partner is. Yes this girl might be really pretty, or this boy might be wealthy, and you love him/her like crazy, but the real question, in my opinion, is how...

EPL & Unpredictability

Couple of weeks and matches have passed and i can say that EPL is so fascinating. You just don’t know what happened next or who’ll win. Liverpool which is last year’s champions are surrounded by injury; Manchester City their closest rival seems to lost their way;...

iPad in 2020

I recently got myself an iPad Pro and these are the consideration and experienced i’ve gathered so far. Why I think i’ve come to the point where i should separate my needs on different devices. I used to think that i won’t need an iPad: i already use Macbook Pro and...

Farewell, Father

Farewell, Father

My father passed away last weekend. I’ve been trying my best to make sense of this situation but i don’t think I’ve been doing a good job on doing so. The last time someone close to me passed a way was years ago. In a sense i’ve been lucky not to experience these...
