Do I Need The iPhone 6?




There's a very easy answer to this question and it's... No I don't! I have been using an iPhone 4 that I got from my son when my iPhone 3 stopped working six months ago, and though I really like iPhones generally, and find them easy to use, I wouldn't say I needed a new one until it breaks... But there is a difference between "needing" something and "wanting" it! The new iPhones look really good, so I'm going to look at whether it's worth thinking about actually going out and buying one.

Games
I'm actually not that great at technology and computers and stuff like that. What I like about the Apple system is that it's easy to use and quite intuitive, as well as the fact that it looks nice! Really I just need a phone to call people, use as an alarm clock and play a few games on, and the big-screen iPhone 6 Plus would be great for gaming. I like to play bingo sometimes, which works well on my smaller iPhone 4. But the site I usually play at is good for more than just bingo games, with slots and roulette as well, so the big screen would make everything much clearer.

Sizes
This is the most important difference with the new iPhone - the screen sizes. The old phones have started to look a bit small now that so many Android phones from Samsung and other companies come with bigger screens. The smallest iPhone 6 screens have gone from 4" to 4.7", which might not sound like much but makes quite a big difference to the screen area. The iPhone 6 Plus is 5.5" diagonally which is pretty big. You could easily watch movies on it!

Cameras

Another thing I use the iPhone for is taking photos, and the new phones have a good camera in the usual place and an improved front-facing one for taking selfies and doing video calls, if that's the kind of thing you like! I think the existing camera on my phone is fine, so if the new one is better, that's great, but it wouldn't be enough to make me rush out and buy one.

Prices

I think that right now, the iPhone 6 will be too expensive to convince me that I "need" it. When it's released in Malaysia the price will be something around RM2,500-3,500 without a contract. If I was going to upgrade my iPhone 4 I'd probably think about getting an iPhone 5S, as the prices of these will probably now start to come down. The only problem is that big screen - if I get to try out someone's new iPhone 6 my old phone is going to feel very small...!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
