Mi Note is coming

Xiaomi,the 4-year-old startup company which started the business from Android-based Mi smartphones,just announced a new flagship product to the public-Mi Note.

Mi Note

The stunning 5.7 inch 1080P (95% NTSC) display just blows me away. Working with 1300 Mega-pixel f/2.0 rear camera with OIS/400 Mega-pixel f/2.0 2um front camera,you won’t miss any details that you should see.

Although it has a huge screen,the size actually is controlled very well. It’s only 6.95mm thickness with around 165g weight. It’s light as feather compared to some other smartphones with the similar screen.The front and back are all covered by glass. The front one is 2.5D where the back one is 3D. So the phone will be very smooth to hold,of course,it looks wonderful too.However,please hold it tight always because they are still glass. Continue reading Mi Note is coming

HotelQuickly – Your amazing helper for last-minute hotel booking

Sometimes you may face the booking issue when you are stuck in a city that you didn’t plan to stay. Most hotel reservation websites/apps only accept the booking at least 24 hours before you arrive.That normally causes quite a lot of headache if you’re not familiar with the city that you stay in. Most people have no choice but just walk into a nearby hotel which you totally don’t know the price as well as the overall quality until you get there. So it could be a nightmare if you’re not lucky enough.

HotelQuickly is intending to solve that kind of problems. It only provides the last-minute booking ( from today or tomorrow) and could book for 5 days at most.It promises to offer better prices and only those with good reputations will be offered.It’s quite simple to use it.

Will we benefit from low crude oil price?

Today the headline is all about crude oil which the price touched 7-year-low. Many people may ask how it could affect our daily lives.Here they are:

  • As Malaysia is a oil producer,lower crude oil price means fewer government income for the period. It will force the government to slow down,or maybe cut some investments in infrastructures,such as LRTs,schools,hospitals etc.
  • Corporate activities will be reduced for oil and gas sector and profit margin will be challenged. The biggest player in oil and gas sector in Malaysia – Petronas is certainly going to review some of their projects and delay parts of deployments are expected. O&G service sector will lose some jobs,as well as those construction companies.
