Apple M1 

Just finished watching the Apple event, either they are really good in marketing M1 and their tech - or those tech and M1 are really good.. Being in the industry, I always get excited with all these new technologies but at the same time feeling bad/struggled understanding friends don’t like these big corps for good reasons..

Internet of Subscriptions 

do you think it’s worth it to pay for YouTube to skip all the ads, play music then unsubscribe both Netflix and Spotify?

drove a gogoro today! achievement unlocked. it’s kind of sad too, matthew and I were talking about me will be taking him on a gogoro one day but that day will never come 😔

nice, I like the feature that company will inform and delete your user account if it’s not used anymore (after 2 months inactivity in my case).

is it too much to make katsu (breaded fried chicken) on a Thursday?

Rant about Germany office 

I was worried about the enforcement of requirement of FFP2 mask before I visit the Bürgeramt (government office). so I bought the 3,95 EUR and wear it to wait for my turn.. in the end, I saw the officer who helped me and a few of them are not even wearing the masks 🥶🤬

(ok maybe they have condition) but anyway why the fxck is EC card as only payment method 💩

Life and computer question 

I am reluctant, but should I build a desktop? the reason being is I can incrementally build it based on my specs.. start with cheaper components but many hard disks (de-cloud my photos

had this today en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baumkuch, it’s similar to kek lapis we have in Malaysia/Indonesia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spekkoek

“Kek lapis legit”
legit in bahasa = sweet and tasty
Yup, legit 😄

Coffee 

trying out this coffee “machine” and manual milk frother. the espresso is not so strong 🤔 and some technics is needed for the right foam ☕️

Russia’s Nalvany Protests live stream from TV Rain, claiming their sites got attacked and down. and communication suppression at the venues prevented some live coverage.

wondering which new tech can come to counter-attack these bad tactics

Recently I also learned a lot from this NVC method of communication/answering/listening.

“NVC proposes that people should identify shared needs, which are revealed by the thoughts and feelings surrounding these needs, and then they should collaborate to develop strategies and make requests of each other to meet each other's needs.”

1. Jackal language vs. Giraffe language
2. Listen but don’t engage
3. Digging the needs and requested

In my experience as well, I also noticed/experienced these culture clashes at work. For example, imagine there’s no different nationalities, just character: Expressive vs. Unexpressive, and Confrontational vs. Avoidance of Confrontation.

if unexpressive + confrontational might give you relationship and heart problem, then expressive + avoidance of confrontation might give you work and brain problem. It’s impossible to avoid, we better if we learn about it.

Interesting talk from the all hands today, talking about different cultures and at work, from this book bookdepository.com/Culture-Map

It ended with the note like “you cannot imagine how strong is the culture effect” many were praising the talk after that. (a little context, we have around 100 nationalities in the company)

Friend was asking what’s the difference between shiitake and common mushrooms, just look the same..

“One reason is for their flavor, meaty and buttery fresh, and smoky when dried. They’re low in calories but high in protein, B vitamins, vitamin D, minerals, and dietary fiber.”

Smoky 🥃 😋

Amazing, my hands can actually make Bramborák (Czech potato pancake) - taught by a Czech friend 🤩

Bought a coffee for Signal. Hoping more people are joining them, Keep it up!

Sad WhatsApp, it has been there since my Nexus One 📱

just heard a thunder, then I thought it’s pouring now.

Nope it’s not raining, it’s thunder snow! ⛄️🌩 ❄️ Let’s see we can have some ugly snowmen on the streets

Pleasant surprise 🌟 found my AirPods after 1 year+ in the shoe bag I used to bring to gym. Yayyy it’s a gift and I actually don’t want to buy a new one 💸💸

It’s snowing again ❄️ hope we have enough snow then I can watch those kids enjoying their sledding again (actually my inner child also wants to play 😆
