Finally got a copy of this book thanks to Zeenee. Began reading it two days back. It’s been an amazing read so far and I’m sure Walter Isaacson’s book will be topping the charts for some time. If you are planning to buy this in Malaysia, don’t bother getting it from anywhere other than Borders. Most places are charging RM99.90 for it but you can get it for a 20% (…) Read more
We were at MG Cafe, Hartamas last weekend for tea and stopped by our favourite DVD shop. Zeenee randomly picked a series to watch. She knew that I was a big fan of Sherlock Holmes and saw this BBC series “Sherlock: Season 1”. I’ve just watched the first two episodes over two days. Each episode is about 1 and the half hours and I have to say that it is (…) Read more
I’ve been doing web development for about 15 years now. I remember my first website hosted on geocities (now owned by Yahoo) and my first e-mail account (mailcity).

Then the world wide web got bigger and bigger and websites became more sophisticated filled (…) Read more
Just read this beautiful article on New York times where Steve Jobs sister recalled the last moments of his life. The last part of the article was really beautiful.

What I learned from my brother’s death was that character is (…) Read more

So you may see more private posts or password protected posts in future. I also made a small error when clearing up my Picasa web albums. Not realising that it was linked to this blog, (…) Read more
One thing I admire about Zeenee is her strong determination to try out many new and creative things with Saivhes. He has been exposed to lots of fun stuff and she has been constantly reading and learning new ways to interact with him. I’ll write more about her teaching techniques and activities she does for Saivhes another time. Saivhes has recently shown some interest in drawings and sketches. Whenever I (…) Read more
Our cousin, Isaac has a strong fascination for reptiles. Well, he didn’t hunt any crocodiles but recently managed to catch a monitor lizard. I know most of us would run for our lives if we saw one, but he went after it, caught it and later told me that he tried to sell it to a few restaurants! So much for being a reptile lover Isaac!!!
