Today's Family And Technology


Most families utilize some sort of technology in their homes. Children of younger and younger ages are carrying around tablets and smartphones. While to some people this may look bad, it's actually a good thing. With technology comes more learning and more connection.
If you stop and take a moment to look into a household you may actually be amazed at all the things the family does with their devices of choice. From staying in touch with distant relatives to order take-out, there is almost no limit to what you can do with television and internet.

A Look At Mom And Technology
Both moms and dads can use technology to keep up with what their children are doing, in many ways. If you have a teen or preteen that is online, you can set up keystroke loggers to keep an eye on who they are talking to and what they are doing online, for their own safety.
Mom probably doesn't spend all of her time online spying on the kids though. She may be using the computer to work from home, she could also be using her tablet in the kitchen to look up the latest recipe she pinned on Pinterest to make a fun new dessert for dinner tonight.

Moms may also spend some time shopping online. She may still spend time watching QVC and ordering the latest fun gadgets from infomercials, but now the internet has opened up a whole new world of shopping delights, and a good mom is sure to take advantage of online deals.

A Look At Kids And Technology
What children so on line can differ between sexes and ages. Older kids may spend their time online talking to friends. If they aren't glued to a laptop talking on Facebook then they are probably glued to their smartphones texting. Some of them Skype, some of them SnapChat.
Both boys and girls enjoy gaming online, and they may prefer online gaming to something like a Playstation. Of course, they need to have that too because it's cool. Most gaming system can go online now as well.
Kids of all ages can spend time online learning or enjoying their friends on social media, but there are also dangers online. That's why it is important for parents to monitor their children's online time, no matter their age.

A Look At Dad And Technology
It's likely dad spends most of his time looking up do it yourself home repair projects online, or maybe watching sports on TV. A father that is a real sports buff is probably happier with a big screen TV and a great surround sound system than worrying about what is on the internet.
Of course, he needs a great TV provider, like number one ranked DirecTV Satellite TV. They have fast service, no interruptions, and no way can dad live without NFL Sunday Ticket! Plus, with good service, dad can watch sports on the go, too. 

Not all dads are into sports, but a good TV service means other great channels, like military, history and more. Technology doesn't just help each member of the family do the individual things they love, it also helps them keep in contact with each other. Who hasn't had their child text them from another room in the house?

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 …
