Ninetology is a local smartphone brand that is still quite new to the scene. They offer quite a range of mid range smartphones. I previously review the Ninetology U9X1 and if anyone still interested to read the review, you can have a look at it here. The Ninetology U9R1 priced at RM799 is one of their latest smartphone model. Here is a quick review of the said device.
If you were to talk about one of of the top Android smartphones or phablet this year, the Sony Xperia Ultra is definitely one of them. Build in an elegant squarish form and also with glass surface for the front and back part, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra also boasts an incredible build that makes it dust and water proof. The Ninetology U9Z1+ is probably the most expensive Ninetology phone although only priced at RM1299 but it is also one of Ninetology most advanced smartphone in the market at the moment. How do these compared to each other? Shall we find out?
Firstly, my apologies for the absence. I know I did many of these apologies as late but trust me. It was beyond my control and I had been really really busy with life. I still many pending food blog posts to be done as well. Well, I hope I could get back on my schedule by at least next month! Anyway, Christmas is around the corner so have you gotten a gift for your significant other or kids? If not, then why not read on further of this post. Recently, I got my hands on one of these Furby toys that had been all the rage. I am always curious of what exactly is this thing whenever I pass by them in shopping malls. For all who did not know, Furby is an electronic toy pet from Hasbro. Much like the Tamagotchi being brought to reality.
The package of Furby Boom came in a box. What’s unique about the box is there is a patch of Furby’s fur on top of it. You can actually felt and see the fur of your choice before making your purchase.
Do you know what is the ultimate thing to be totally immersed in after work? Alcohol and chilling with friends! That’s exactly what happened to me during last Friday’s Tiger Radler Launch! And with this launch, Tiger Radler promises double refreshment! I would guess they meant the refreshing taste of beer coupled with some refreshing lemon taste as well. I actually had a taste of it few days before the launch during the Stuff Awards dinner with my company. I will further write about the taste in this post though. Anyway, the launch this time was held in KL Live. This is how the event goes about for the night.
As we registered and walk in to the venue, we are greeted by the customary photo opportunity wall with Tiger Beer ambassadors taking polaroid photos of you and your friends.
Our famous local airline, Air Asia has a new menu for their flights! Honestly, every frequent Malaysian travellers had definitely board their flights before. Who hasn’t since everyone can fly? But one thing for sure, not everyone had tried their in-flight meals before. That includes me. Well, unless you count the can of milo I drank before once few years back. So I was invited over to try their new in-flight menu and I jumped into it, well, since I never had any before. And do note, these items are already on sale by now since this is a long overdue post. My apologies for being late since I am drowned with work and personal matters.
What would sum up the perfect weekend getaway? A trip to a spa and hot spring resort obviously. When you mention hot spring and spa in Malaysia, one could not miss out on the amazing Sunway Tambun Lost World. And, that’s the place where this weekend getaway is taking place. The trip to Tambun Lost World, Ipoh began with our ride with the ETS train. For those who are not aware of the ETS Train(Electric Train Services) is an intercity train that currently operates between Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh. It is actually one of the most preferred way to travel from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh or vice versa and for the rightful reason.
The highlight of the trip or may be I should say the entire place is definitely their hot springs. The Lost World Hot Springs and Spa . They covered a space of 80,000sf that consists of Infinity Pool, Lost World Steam Cave, Foot Spa, Top of The World Pool, The Geyser of Tambun, Crystal Pool, Saphira’s Lair, Saphira’s Baby Pool and Crystal Spa. The name of the places definitely suggest our time spent here is not going to be enough.
I like how they uses a fire breathing dragon or dinosaur at the entrance. This will definitely appeal to kids.
The Lost World of Tambun, Ipoh was not only designed to cater for adults. It is a theme park after all and The Lost World of Tambun consists of seven main elements of FUN which are the Water Park, the Amusement Park, Lost World Hot Springs & Spa, Lost World Petting Zoo, the Lost World Tin Valley and Lost World Team Building Park.
The ticket price to enter the park is as below.
- Adult – RM48 nett per person
- Children – RM 41 nett per person
- Chilren below 90cm in height – Free of charge
- Group package available upon inquiry – minimum 30 pax and advanced booking required
Recently, I participated in one of Ninetology’s program which is called the Tech Kaiju Project. I was loaned two units of smartphones, the Ninetology U9X1 and also the Samsung Galaxy S3. In this blog post, I will do a comparison between these two phones but it will be more on a rough review of the Ninetology U9X1 as I previously done a Galaxy S3 review before which you can read it here.
Let’s get started on this review right here with unboxing of both phones shall we?
Before I go on with my post, I would like to clarify although it is pretty obvious already, I do not know how to swim. I know jacksh*t about swimming. And I don’t believe in them at all. Not to say they are not effective but I just felt they can’t make me understand what they are teaching. I was kinda
forced persuaded by my mom once back when I was a kid and I hated the class. Several other people tried to teach me but they failed obviously. So when Caroline told me that she was about to go to a swimming class that could teach her how to swim in less than 12 hours, I was skeptical. Never had I heard such ridiculous claims of knowing how to swim in 12 hours. I usually hear you need at least 3 damn months to perfect your float and basic swim before moving on to breast stroke style. That’s basically already a minimum of 12 hours. So this is what happened.
