Had Peking Duck the other day…

Forgot to post the, but then, it wasn’t really that exciting, cuz I got there late…
and the duck was already killed, plucked, cleaned, blown, roasted, and sliced up…
but here are the pictures anyway…

Another Test…

Posted: April 26, 2008 in Just Another Day

After using this Live Writer thing…

I found out that, the spacing is weird.. can’t adjust it either…

and pictures… well, it creates another album named Blog Images…

It’s no big deal.. but… kinda annoying…

and after i deleted that album…. all the pics disappear to others, but I can still see it… so…

Here’s just another test…

Sogo – En

Posted: April 26, 2008 in Food and drink, Taiwan
Today mom and I went to this restaurant at the Fu-Xing Sogo – “EN”
It was the uh… 竹筴魚 special thing…
I thought the atmosphere was… OK… noisy since you have the weekend shopping crowd
which means you’ll gonna see couples, group of friends, and families with kids…
The waiters… well… the Japanese manager was nice, but everyone else had no facial expressions…
And it took a long long time for our food to come…. Which is no good…
Food was decent, not bad I thought… Not very expensive either
There are a lot of stuff on the menu, categorized by how it’s prepared
Overall, it’s worth trying, I’d give it a 7.5, not the best, but you won’t come out and feel that you should’ve gone somewhere else…

This was the other special thing… Rice in the clay pot with 竹筴魚, 毛豆, 梅子, 紫蘇

I think the rice was cooked in fish stock          This was the fish bone from our sashimi deep fried

So I fed up with my stupid windows messenger logs me on and off without telling me

I decided to upgrade to the MSN Live Messenger 8.5

What’s the difference? I have no idea…

However, during the install, it has this option of installing Windows Live Writer

Hmm… Since now I update my blog more often, maybe I can give it a try

Especially since writing my blog online with IE, it… how should I put it…

The text will lag while I type, and sometimes it leads to wrong spelling… yeah, me anal…

So anyway…. so far, I see that this Windows Live Writer has auto spell check which is good

and then there are a few more options for fonts…

The most interesting feature is that you can actually preview your blog as if it was posted on your space before you are done with it.

So anyway, I suppose I will start using this instead of use the online editor…

I guess the next thing I have to do is to install it on my laptop…

Here’s the umm… 甘梅地瓜條 I got yesterday… It more like… Sweet potato wedges…

good? well, not bad lah~

4/18 SonyEricsson HBS-DS980

Posted: April 18, 2008 in Toys
A bluetooth headset is required for riding my bike…
After riding around town the day before, I decided that I need the following:
1. A bluetooth headset for my phone
2. A more comfortable grip for my bike
3. A pair of cycling shorts so my ass won’t crack next time
and much more.. but that’ll come later…
Anyway, so I went out to find a headset that has a screen to show phone numbers and maybe the name of the song I’m listening to…
Actually, I could careless about the music functions…
So after careful research… which took about… 10 minutes…
Cuz there are not that many headsets that can display numbers… or… have a screen…
I found this SE headset that allows me to see who’s calling, go thru my phonebook and call, and show song titles.
Here it is… SE HBS-DS980
The Box…
P1000445P1000446
Power on screen – OLED
P1000450P1000451
Without the protective plastic thing…                      Next/Previous control for songs and going thru phonebook or call list
P1000454P1000455
Bluetooth A2DP                                                    Function key and Up/Down Volume control
P1000456P1000457
As with any Sony product, it looks good and that’s good enough for me.. hahahahaa!!
