Samsung Screwed Up My Phone


I have never been a Samsung fan, Sony have always been my choice for last 15 years. Back in Singapore 2016 my son had a Samsung S7 and he had made me change my mine. Back then Sony did not have the phone of choice so I have decided to purchased a Samsung S7. 

The S7 was my adventure tough phone, made videos, Navigate, edited videos for Youtube, entertainment  etc. Recently due to poor anger management I have damage the screen.

So the phone was sent for replacement screen and when it came back the led and sensor was not working. Back it when for service and when it returned I asked if the phone is still waterproof and I did not get an answer. I decided to put it to the test and it failed!!

The service center called and told me the phone could not be repaired and they can't do anything about it!!!

Moral of the story if you send your phone for repair it is best you check with them. I made this video so everyone around the world can take note about this problem. As for me now if I do not get an answer I will bring this to Consumer Association.

Taiwan Uber


photo belong to Yahoo

I am not a fan of Uber, actually I have taken a few times this years. My experience was speechless. 

I seen young drivers who try to make some $$$ and they were very kind and helpful. 

Taiwan have left little chance for this young generation to make $$$, this is just another opportunity for them. Yellow cab drivers are not that bad but compare to Uber drivers, it is still far from it.


In Singapore they have Grab and Uber, as I know they do no see a problem there. Singapore has more Taxi compare to Taipei and Kaohsiung combine. What is wrong with people driving to pick up others, this is happening everywhere in the world. In Thailand there are bike taxi, in Indonesia they have Tutu, elsewhere do your homework.

So what is wrong with modern world driving Uber? Is this about authorities can't find away to tax drivers, instead fining them??? Come on they do not get paid instantly, this is something like cooperate 7-11 using the online purchase benefit, washing money...... Who is the one should be in watch. Which authority is in the pocket of 7-11, may I ask??

I honestly feel the local authorities are so blind. They listen to any complain but never understand how this nation has become. The young is getting jobless and you are trying to restrict them, this nation in next 10 years might be doomed all because of your current benefit that someone is getting.

If the young have no opportunity now, their further is for you to see, so is you retirement plan.

FastStone Photo Resizer - Powerful Image Converter/Resizer




This software is really amazing, there is no Malwares or Virus. I am using it to convert most of the photos taken in 4:6 to 16:9 so that the photo can look good on Youtube.  

Found the ideal setting will be 1500 x 845 pixel under Advance Options. The photo do convert well but to a smaller size file in another folder so your original photo still stays in tact. Good enough to make a Youtube Video. 

You have a look at the video I created in Backpacking East Malaysia Sabah and decide weather it is good enough.
