I was in Shah Alam Skatepark when some of the longboarders asked me to go to i-City to longboard. I didn’t go as it was already 3 am that time. This time, I am going to MTV World Stage in the same venue. Though, if I actually end up going or not is still a big question cuz I still am not able to walk at this time.
Sponsored by xPax Celcom, expect the whole event to be dressed in Purple, Purple and Purple.
Jared Leto and Claire Danes, My So Called Life
I am especially interested in seeing Jared Leto perform. I followed his acting career since “My So-Called Life” with co-star, Claire Danes up til “Chapter 27″. His singing career had been going on for a decade or so and now, it has finally taken off. Though the band, 30 Seconds from Mars finally played by the formula of writing more “hooks” into their songs, this inevitably led them to success.
Ever since I been sofa and wheel chair bound, KY bought me the entertainment package on Astro. With MTV around, I start to see names like Neon Trees and Beast. Neon Trees may sound relatively new but they have toured with one of my favourite bands, The Killers before. Also, being a closet subscriber to Gossip Girls, their song ‘Animal’ was featured in one of the episodes. I still remember when One Republic’s Apologize were featured in Season One and that song got so popular after that episode. Crazy.
Here we go again.. dadadadada..
Another one of the acts that is local act, Pop Shuvit. Not to be confused by the longboarding term of the same name though. Been hearing their name now and then since they are closely tied to Hitz FM where some of my friends work there. Also, I bet all of us listened to their songs before in Hitz FM and Fly FM as well. And its not like we never seen them before… The video below is shot in Lim Kok Wing, a stone’s throw away from my previous uni, MMU.
Since I broke my ankle, I been ordering food delivery non-stop when one day Mcdonalds said that they are closed and I decided to try Domino’s Pizza. I was surprised to see that the ordering process is very smooth and fluid, free from bugs. It keeps your order in the session if you forgot to add it to cart as well.
My delight heightened into shock when I saw their GPS tracker.
Domino's GPS tracker. Gimmick or Awesomesauce?
Convinced that it is just an animation that is pre-timed and playing just to make customers happy, I kept the window open to see if the tracker is real. It just sounds too good to be true. It tracks right from the moment the order is placed to baking and right up to delivery time.
Time shown when the current action has begun
The amazing easter egg. What is an easter egg? It is something that you do not usually notice in a website but if you play around with the website long enough, you will bump into a surprise script or two. In this case, when you hover your mouse over the current status, the time that they begin that particular process will pop up.
2.07 pm - Baking
See? The baking started at 2.07 pm. Is this too cool or what?
Before delivery-2.10 pm
Sure enough, when the status hit Delivery, in less than 15 minutes time a motorbike zoomed passed my gate with a horn.
This is the script that handles this cool widget. It basically refreshes the widget and sends back the status from the Domino’s restaurant.
So the verdict is people, YES it does work. Happy! *Munch Munch*
Have you seen other cool technologies in other food delivery websites? I want to know!
I may be crippled for the time being, but I ain’t gonna stop blogging! Recently, a new set of soap got launched. Not just any soap, but this series of soap boasts of anti-aging factors together with the usual bandwagon of moisturizing, skin brightening features.
Flower power to fight aging
At the event, 4 new soaps were introduced.
Yuan Honeysuckle Soap
Great for lacklustre and inflamed skin, this soap can calm and ease the inflammation of the skin and rejuvenates your skin as well.
Yuan Mulberry & Chrysanthemum Soap
Naturally mild, this soap is cooling to the skin and helps the skin to regenerate. Containing Mulberry leaves, chrysanthemum and liquorice, they promote anti-aging as they are rich in anti oxidants properties. They can also lighten the skin and inhibit melanin production.
What this means is, this soap is good for healing scars and wounds.
Yuan Tithonia Soap
This is made from Tithonia, otherwise known as the Mexican Sunflower and is the best anti-aging soup in the series. It lighten age spots, prevent wrinkles and improve dry skin.
Yuan Alpinia Speciosa Soap
Made from shellflowers, the process to make this soap is tedious and difficult. The plant can only be extracted every 730 days and is found in many Japanese skincare products because it is very good in rejuvenating dull and tired skin. The soap also helps moisturize dry skin and tighten your pores as well.
Inspired by flowers, Chiang Jung Yuan found the perfect composition in creating soaps for specific needs
When you have soaps that the names are not marketable and the packaging is lacking in design, you know that the reason it stayed so long in the market is because the products actually work.
Then you have a small gathering, where the owner came all the way from Taiwan and humbly tells you that all the soaps does not contain fragrance or colourings and only contains herbs, plant oils and get this, fresh springwater from the famed YangMingShan Forest Reserve in Taipei, Taiwan.
Famous for their healing and revitalizing properties, all Yuan soaps are handmade and 100% organic.
All the flowers are pesticide free and using nature as a basis to find the correct formula for the perfect soap, various parts of the plant from the flowers to the stems and roots were used.
Soap cutting activities during the event.
Suited for the elderly, wounded and generally anyone who loves organic products, Yuan soap is gentle on the skin and helps support the skin by herbal means. I will always prefer organic products compared to chemical ones after what my father has been through.
Truly organic soap.
I think I will be getting one of it after my leg has healed, it will probably help me reduce the scars and lighten the scar tissue as well.
Yuan Soap can be found in more than 100 stores which includes :
Jusco Wellness Mid Valley
Little Green Planet
and other organic stores.
Each soap weighs 100 grams and costs RM 35.90/piece.
