Dinner with Ayla

Feeling lovely - its dinner time with Ayla.

Upgraded to Windows10

That feeling .. when you board with Economy class tickets - but end up sitting in First Class to your holiday destination. That's what a flawless and smooth Windows10 upgrade felt like.I have just upgraded from Windows 8 to 10.
I had to move from 8 to 8.1 first, which took about 2+ hours. Then went to Windows 10, that was another 3+ hours. Most of the process was on auto-pilot, and I could largely use my desktop during the process.The last time (2014) I attempted to upgrade my Lenovo 23 inch All-In-One to Windows 8.1, it didn't work. The culprit then was a conflict in display drivers, leading up to multiple restarts corrupting my HD sectors. I never upgraded to 8.1 since then.This time the upgrade to Win 10 was flawless. Why?
1. The best part of it - all my files, apps, MS tools, anti virus are preserved. It flashed a sweet message "All files are where you left them". That means unlike previous upgrades I didn't have to re-install my Word, Excel, Anti-virus, Pr…

Aim Higher

Aim Higher .. Always.Some simple rules for self-development, I live by:1. Keep growing.
2. Keep discovering.
3. Make every minute count on reaching your own goals.
4. Keep the entrepreneurial spirit alive and wild, as ever.
5. Lastly, never let a dull job or the toxic people at work define - who you become as a person.Grow outside your job and build your own economy."Hasta la Victoria Siempre" - Che Guevara

Chloe's birthday 2015

Happy Birthday Chloe.Baby Chloe celebrated her first birthday in style. Now she resembles Budy more than before.She is an early starter and has quickly learned standing, walking, climbing stairs, and telling her preferences in her baby tones. Ayla dressed in her princess gear to the party. Adi was ready as well, but started getting sleepy. We thought it was better to let Adi rest at home with Eva.It's always a pleasure to meet Budy, Diana, their adorable baby girl Chloe - along with their friends and family.Ayla specially remembers Diana and her loving sister, and came back home with a pack of baloons & cake.Thanks so much for inviting us over lunch.

Good Morning

Good Morning.
Setting the tone for the day - by reading a few pages first thing in the morning, planning the day, and some power-thoughts.

Eva's Birthday 2015

Happy Birthday Eva.
Both kids have been very excited in the countdown to their Aunty's birthday.
Eva with her choice of birthday gift. She had a Sony Xperia in mind, so we headed to the Sony Center in Bugis Junction. After comparing a few models and specs, we selected Xperia C5. 

The weather has been rainy, with daily downpours. Considering this, we decided to have a indoor visit - to the Science Center.

The 'Monsters of the Sea' is a fine attraction.
Initially Adi was a bit scared to go in. After seeing the life sized models of sharks, he got finally fascinated. We had an interesting moment when the giant croc model he was admiring, opened its jaws wide.

The attraction has about 30 giant models in motion. There is a fossil digging activity, which seems to be a hit among kids. I personally loved the 3D animations featuring the prehistoric creatures. The best was about a fossil recovered, dating back to 45 million years. The forensics identified a giant shark tooth embedded…

Dinner at Nandos

Me and Sophia having dinner at Nando's, Bugis Junction - after my gym. The food here is perfectly healthy and delicious. I just love it to the core.
