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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
