If I could own a super car, it has gotta be a Lamborghini. Not just any Lamborghini, I want to be behind the wheels of Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster, the tarmac burning 12-Cylinder Flamethrower. IF...If I have an extra US$350, 000 (RM1.4 Million) in my bank account of course. Still one can dream and every man needs to have his own set of wheels to move around like a boss, no? IMHO, it is one of the best V12-powered hypercars ever built for men. :)

Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster

Imagine if you could steer this jaw-dropping Aventador S Roaster to blaze your neighbourhoold and town, wouldn't it be pure joy with green eyes googling all over you? However before you could even drive this beast around, you must first tame this fire breathing monster or it will wreak havoc for you and those around you. *gasp* Sounds really scary right? Behind the wheel of Aventador, one cannot help but feel like you are navigating a highly weaponized game console...only this is for real. They say haste is waste...if you cannot control it. :p

Built for speed 

Aerodynamic at its best!

Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster At A Glance:


  • Engine: 6.5-litre V12
  • 0-100kmph: 3 seconds
  • Top Speed: 350kmph
  • Kilometre Per Litre: 7
  • Price: US$350, 000

What will you feel when you get to meet Aventador S Roaster in its flesh metal? If you are like me...you will be dumbstruck for sure the moment you see it. The roaring of the car engine will strike fear and awe at the same time; The scissors door will leave you gushing; The lines and curves of the car accentuate class that you cannot shake off; and the military-grade body of the car makes you feel like you are in a tank on steroid!


The dashboard cluster of Aventador exudes so much class and glam!

Make no mistake that Aventador S Roaster is a terrifying machine with its loud groaning and growling, eager to inch forward to pounce on its prey-the asphalt! Once you step on the gas, the beast is unleashed and you can feel the adrenaline coursing through your veins as foes from 0 to 100KM in 3 seconds! Damn...just 3 seconds? Yes. Lamborghini Aventador is powered by a 730bhp 6.5-litre V12 engine which allows it to execute insane acceleration and maxes at 350kmph. Not only that, there is also an active rear wing and addenda which are ultra-aerodynamic which allows Aventador to achieve its electrifying pace.

Road cruiser in the day! 

Absolute charmer at night!

The unveiling of a beautiful beast.

Here comes another mind-blowing feature; Lamborghini Aventador is equipped with not 1, not 2 but 4 Driving Modes namely Strada, Sport, Corsa and Ego. Ego sounds like all hell breaks loose to me. LOL :D Through these 4 different driving modes, you can adjust the suspension, throttle and gearbox settings individually to suit your driving needs...or ego. Each of the 4 wheels will be powered together through a seven-speed robotised shifting rods which can switch cogs in 50 milliseconds. Speaking about neck-breaking speed!

Just when you thought you have seen in all about smartphones this year, you are wrong. Oppo Find X assures us that our search for the ultimate flagship smartphone has come to an end. Introducing the smartphone with 93.8% screen-to-body ratio which is almost an all-screen smartphone or device that we used to only dream in sci-fi box office movies. Thanks to the innovation pushed by Oppo, you can now own a piece of a futuristic phone that none others have so far...not even iPhone or Samsung.


Behold: The glorious Oppo Find X

The moment you hold it in your hand, you will be astounded by Oppo Find X's stunningly gorgeous 6.4-inch 1080p dual-curved AMOLED display which is almost bezel-less. You won't be seeing any notch here either, just pure huge display for your visual indulgence thanks (again) to its 93.8% screen-to-body ratio. Wait a minute...if the display is almost bezel-less and there is no notch...then where on earth is the camera right? The mysterious disappearance of cameras on Oppo Find X is the next jaw-dropping moment you will have.



Oppo Find X: Beautifully crafted to perfection.

So where did Oppo hide the front-facing camera and the rear main camera out of sight? The designers at Oppo must be a big fan of Houdini as they have successfully crafted Oppo Find X to have both the camera to be concealed or hidden when they are not in use. When you hit the camera app, the whole top section of the phone, between the front display and the glass back actually slides upward to reveal hidden cameras of Oppo Find X! Speaking about pure sleek genius design. It is like magic: Now you see the cameras....and...now you don't.

OK...so where is the camera?

After you have "activated" the cameras, you will be greeted by a 25MP front-facing selfie camera with AI Beautification Mode. Flip the gorgeous Oppo Find X to the back and you will see the 16MP+20MP rear dual camera setup. Such cutting edge camera slider design means Oppo has also equipped Find X with a 3D Face Scanner  which is sitting nicely next to your selfie camera. This 3D Face Scanner works in the same vein as Xiaomi's Mi 8 and this means you will have better piece of mind thanks to the added security.


The camera slider just pop up when you hit the camera app!

Some might argue that, after hitting the camera app...you might need to wait for a long time for the motorized slider to show your cameras. The truth is, it only takes 0.5 second to launch the cameras of Oppo Find X which is actually quite damn fast. After watching the video, demonstrating how the cameras slider is launched, you wonder why the other flagship smartphones cannot combine aesthetic and practicality like what Oppo has achieved with Find X? Playing it too safely in the comfort zone aye Apple and Samsung? :p

Oppo Find X boasts stylish curves and seamless lines of beauty.



When the cameras slider is not launched, it fits beautifully "into" the phone.

OK! Now that we have visually feasted on the design and beauty of Oppo Find X, we still need to scrutinize its specifications. So under the shiny metallic hood of Find X, you will get, of course the flagship Snapdragon 845 processor together with Adreno 630 GPU for pure power. There will be 8GB of RAM for buttery smooth usage of the smartphone and 256GB of internal storage. Last but not least Find X will be juiced with a 3,730mAh battery that supports OPPO's ultra fast VOOC fash-charging via USB Type-C. All these innards point to premium-class specifications that will certainly give other flagships a run for their money.

Oppo Find X: 3 pop-up cameras, no notch - YouTube
Watch Oppo Find X in action.

Although I really love the transparent, see-through glass back cover of Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition, I cannot deny that Oppo Find X is arguably the most beautiful smartphone we have seen in 2018. Besides the near bezel-less gorgeous display, the mind-blowing motorized cameras slider has made Find X the most impressive flagship we have seen so far. Such spectacular design, combined with flawless usability allows Oppo Find X to exude so much class and elegance, something that no smartphone has done so far. Do you want own a piece of the future? Oppo Find X is reported to have a retail price of at least US$700 (RM2,800 in Malaysia). This is relatively cheap, no?

Oppo Find X is so sublimely polished!

P.S.: I somehow can't help but feel that this out-of-the world design of Oppo Find X is made by Tony Stark (Ironman). Look at how polished it is...just like the armor of Ironman. Hmm...

It was the time of the lunar year again when we prepared Zongzi as offerings to the Gods and Deities and not to mention our ancestors as well. Of course to the uninitiated, these Zongzi can also be loosely referred to as sticky rice dumpling which is made of glutinous rice. Of course there are many different types of these Zongzi as you can stuff different fillings into these bundles of rice and then wrap each of them with a few (usually 2) bamboo leaves. Lastly tie them up by using plant stems and then they are steamed or boiled.

The unmistakable Nyonya Zongzi with blue dye. :)

The minced chicken fillings.

Sounds easy right? But then again it is quite difficult and it takes a lot of time. The last time I my late mother made these for us was like a a decade ago. *melancholy* These days we barely have the time to make our own Zongzi, but still they are needed for prayers. Therefore we have to buy them from experts. Usually my family only consumes two types of Zongzi namely the Blue and White Nyonya Zongzi and the yellowish "Abu" Zongzi without any filling. So what is your flavour of Zongzi?

Another all-time favourite is the "empty" Abu Zongzi without any filling. 

You usually savour them with gula Melaka. Yum! Yum!

So why are we-the Chinese, eat this Zongzi during this Dragon Boat Festival? My wife and I explained to little Jordan and Jasmine about its origin earlier today. This was what we said, "You see...once a upon a time there was a patriotic poet by name Qu Yuan, who loved his country so much that it pained him to see people fighting against each other. Qu Yuan then drowned himself on the fifth day of the fifth Lunar month in the Miluo River, hoping that his death could end the war. The locals who soon learnt about his suicide, immediately raced in their Dragon boats to search for his body. Fearing that the fishes in the river would eat the body of Qu Yuan, they threw clumps of sticky rice aka Zongzi into the river to prevent the hungry fishes from feasting on Qu Yuan. And hence this tradition continues." I wonder if they understood what we had said. LOL :D

Dragon Boat Festival and its tragic origins (Hello China #33) - YouTube
Watch to understand the history of Dragon Boat Racing & Zongzi.

Thanks to Qu Yuan, we now have delicious Zongzi to savour every single year (no disrespect to him and his patriotism though). This tradition has been passed down from generation to generation and I believe most of us are actually looking forward to eating Zongzi every year besides being an excellent opportunity for family members to gather and hangout. One day, my wife and I should really make our own Zongzi and add whatever fillings that we want. *drooling* :p

My kids really love to eat these sweet sticky rice dumplings. :D

Beats is known for its ultra iconic headphones which not only makes music enjoyment for audiophiles but has also become a fashion statement as well. However that doesn't mean the Beats cannot create awesome speakers as we have seen in the like of Beats Pill 2.0 which gives listeners that irresistible eargasmic sensation right? Today we are going to look at the Pill 2.0 successor in the form of Beats Pill+, which is the most beautiful and best-sounding portable speaker that Beats has crafted so far.

Beats Pill+ is the portable Bluetooth speaker that you need!

Pill+ looks a bit the same like its predecessor as both sport the capsule-like shape which gives them their name. Hence we could surmise that even after Beats has been acquired by Apple, the Pill+ redesign is not a radical one. Instead the form factor of Pill+ has been refined from its previous iteration to make it even better. It is more solid and feels more durable than Pill 2.0. On top of the Pill+ you will get 4 buttons to unleash its power. A power button on the left, a metallic play or pause button embellished with the unmistakable Beats "b" logo; And two more rubberized buttons for volume control on the right.  Simple and refined!


Apart from the superior craftsmanship and sturdy build, Beats Pill+ is by far the bests-sounding Beats portable bluetooth speaker to date. In other words Beats Pill+ is better than its older sibling-Pill 2.0, and can deliver that eargasmic sensation which audiophiles demand. The two-way active system allows the amplifiers to be built right into the speakers-one for each pair of the tweeter and woofer.

Use the four buttons to easily play music or adjust the volumes.

Beats claim that such design enables Pill+ to fire different frequencies of the beats (no pun intended) to the designated parts of the speaker which ultimately pumps out a collective symphony of sounds which are music to your ears. No matter what you throw at Pill+ for it to play, everything comes out clearly and fully. No more bass blurring the vocals of the songs; No more piano parts being go missing or inaudible. In other words, Beats Pill+ will deliver near lossless music for you to enjoy.

Use your Pill+ to charge your smartphones.

Though Pill+ is tad bigger than Pill 2.0, it is still very small, portable and convenient enough for you to bring it around. It is relatively light as it tips the scale at 1.5 pounds (680grams). A quick 3-hour charge by plugging in the lightning cable allows your Pill+ to have 12 hours of music playback. More amazingly, you can even use Beats Pill+ to charge your smartphone or other music devices via the USB port of the Lightning port at the back. You can also know more accurately how much juice your Pill+ have by looking at the LED fuel gauge.

I am in love with this Red Pill+

Apart from that, Pill+ comes with a few nifty features such as being able to be pair with another Pill+ to amplify the music played or to set up a dedicated stereo channels. Apart from that, with the Pill+ App, anyone can easily sync their smartphones to the Pill+ speaker without actually pressing any of the 4 physical buttons on the speaker. Talking about seamless connectivity. :)

This flap allows Pill+ to be water resistant.

Of course, one of the highlight features of Beats Pill+ is its Splash Proof ability. This water resistant feature is what most sets Pill+ from other portable speakers in the market. The Lightning charge port, 3.5mm aux input and the full-size USB ports are being covered by a rubbery flap which seals the Pill+ completely to prevent any unwanted water droplets from going in. Being splash-proof, it means you can bring your Pill+ speaker to a pool party to listen to music without really needing to be worried about it.

Beats Pill Plus - YouTube

Being one of the loudest portable speakers in the market, Beats Pill+ holds its own when it comes to sound quality and pure volume. Being a Beats, Pill+ is beautifully designed to please not only your eardrums but eyes as well. Besides being able to be used as a charger, Pill+ is also water resistant which allows you to enjoy your speaker anywhere including somewhere watery. Available in 3 colours: White, Black and Red, Beats Pill+ which retails  with a price tag of US$129 is guaranteed to gratify your music needs be it in the comfort of your room or by the pool with your buddies.

By now Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) at least in his era when he single-handedly rescued a point for Portugal from the might Spaniards who boast a strong team.  Against all odds, Cristiano Ronaldo or CR7 scored all three goals to stun Spain which was 2 minutes from a victory. Likewise his arch rival Messi failed terribly to lift a talented Argentina team when he missed his penalty against lowly Iceland; Which further fuels the fact that without his star-studded teammates like in Barcelona, Messi might not be as good as he is on paper.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored all three goals for Portugal!

Cristiano Ronaldo stroked his chin to celebrate his goal which is a reference to a goat or GOAT! CR7 boldly claimed that he is one of the best and I don't think there are many who will loudly say no after such a masterclass performance from the Portugal captain. We need to remember that Ronaldo is now 33 years old and yet he is still banging the goals as if he is a decade younger. He used to be a skillful dribbler who can blaze the pitch to score goals from any wing but now he has evolved into phenomenal striker whose predatory sense makes him so deadly in front of the goal.

You stick out your leg, I get the penalty! 

Ronaldo confidently converted his penalty.

1st Goal
Ronaldo bolted into the box and flashed a step-over that was sufficient for clumsy Nacho to stick his leg out to force the referee to award a direct penalty. Ronaldo clinically converted his penalty and broke the deadlock.


2nd Goal
Knowing that Spain would be dominating the whole game with possession, Ronaldo knew that his team still had a chance against such team (think Barcelona) if they countered attack quickly. So when Pepe cleared the ball, Ronaldo sniffed and knew this was an opportunity as he accelerated stunningly towards the goal, waiting for the ball to be laid off to him. There he was, the legend waiting to hit the back of the net with his second goal thanks to his flawless positioning playing. Talking about being at the right place at the right time. Mere coincidence? I doubt. This is what Ronaldo has become excellent in-game reading as if he is holding the PS4 joystick!

Ronaldo stuck his freekick! 

 Up and over the wall and it was a...

 GOOOAALLLLL!


3rd Goal
Spain was 120 seconds from 3 points before Pique's foul. Of course Portugal captain-Cristiano Ronaldo would be taking this freekick. He got into his customary wide stance and when the whistle was blown he stepped up and unleashed an unstoppable strike which was not only powerful but also beautiful as the ball crawled over the giant wall and surged into the next just below the bar. Spain goalkeeper De Gea (my favourite keeper) has a night to forget as he could only watch in horror as the ball found the net.

Portugal 3 - 3 Spain | 2018 FIFA World Cup | Astro SuperSport - YouTube

Watch how Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 3 goals against Spain. 

A penalty, a wonderful strike and an curving freekick: 3 important goals from the Ronaldo who was supposed to be way over his prime time or so said all the naysayers. Again he proves his critics wrong and snatched a point from the jaws of the mighty Spaniards. In fact I would go as far to say that Portugal has actually "won" the match when you compare the players they have with the rooster that Spain commands. To me, Cristiano Ronaldo is the most complete player I have ever seen who can score with his head and both feet. To me CR7 is indeed the GOAT. :)

The AI on board of the camera can apply the best settings for different scenes and also has "Studio Lighting" portrait, which is of course very similar to the one heavily advertised by Apple.

4 Reasons to Buy Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition

1-Transparent See-through Glass Back
If I were to choose a smartphone which stands out from the crowd, Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition is undeniably the best-looking phone with "radical" design. One just can't take their eyes off the amazing transparent see-through glass back of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition the moment you lay yours eyes on it. It is so different and breathe a refreshing air to smartphone designs. Then again, some might argue that a few phones have featured such designs such as HTC U12+. However the transparent see-through glass back of Xiaomi Mi 8 looks more beautiful because the placement of the parts are not truly representative of what are actually inside the phone. So this "decorative" transparent see-through glass back is only for decorative purposes? True but it is truly artfully done. :)

 I am falling in love with this transparent see-through glass back of Xiaomi Mi 8
Though it is actually a decorative overlay. :p

2-Infrared 3D Face Unlocks Your Phone Even In The Dark
Xiaomi has announced that Mi 8 Explorer Edition is the first android phone to feature true 3-Dimensional face unlock which utilizes infrared light. The application of infrared helps to map out our face accurately. In other words you can unlock your smartphone using your face more securely with Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition. Apart from that, the infrared emitter allows the phone to have other tricks up its sleeves as it can be used for "Portrait Lighting" effects and to create animated characters such as Animoji (which is strikingly similar to iPhone X).


More secure face unlock with 3D infrared facial scanning.

3-In Screen Fingerprint Scanner
It is a shame that a lot of other so-called Android flagships have yet to integrate in-screen fingerprint sensor or scanner into their smartphones. The first Android phone to have in-display fingerprint sensor is Vivo X21. Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition's in-display fingerprint scanner is designed to be pressure sensitive, meaning that the smartphone will only scan your finger when you press down on the display. This setting eliminates unwanted accidental scanning of your finger and ultimately helps to save your phone battery.

Pressure sensitive in-display fingerprint scanner.

4-Unbeatable Cheap Price
Xiaomi is the company which offers smartphone buyers more bangs for their bucks. In other words, you will get ultra premium features and hardware for you Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition at a very cheap price compared to other flagship smartphones being offered by likes of Apple and Samsung. At only US$575, Mi 8 Explorer Edition is the flagships killer you have to seriously consider if you are looking for a top level smartphone that has the latest technology and features that will last you for years to come. Some analysts claim that Xiaomi is only earning a few bucks from each of its smartphones meaning that you are not being shortchanged by paying very expensive price for a device (think iPhone X).

Will you buy this beautiful Xioami Mi 8 Explorer Edition?

VERDICT
All in all, Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition is arguably one of the best smartphones available in the market right now. Its overall package is way ahead of the pack led by other Android smartphones and iPhone X. I would not be afraid to say that with 3D Infrared Face Unlock, In-display Fingerprint Scanner, elegant transparent see-through glass cover and extremely cheap price tag (US$575 or RM2,300 in Malaysia), Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Eidtion is the smartphone of the moment that none other can be mentioned in the same breath as it. Period.

Everyone of us dreams of having our very own business especially in the United Stated of America as it is the American Dream! Do you know that there are 4 different types of business organizational structures in the United States, and one of them is the LLC also known as the Limited Liability Company? For you information, the limited liability company provides its owners liability protection against company actions and debts similar to a corporation. This means that you can own a business without the too much liability and cost. Its management can be set up as a corporation or partnership for management flexibility and taxation purposes.
                                                                               
                                                                                   
Individuals, foreign entities, corporations or other limited liability companies can be members of a limited liability company. A limited liability company can consists of one or an unlimited number of members, and it enjoys the flexibility to convert into a corporation business structure as the company grows or expand. A corporation can also convert into a limited liability company. This flexibility really bodes well for the commerce and economy of the states.

Benefits of forming a LLC

A limited liability company can be managed as a partnership, or as a corporation. Its members are protected against the financial and legal obligations of a company. In case the company goes bankrupt or gets involved in a financial lawsuit, its members’ personal assets will not be seized. Hence entrepreneurs and dreamers will not be held back by the fear of such limitations. The cost of an LLC application is cheaper than a corporation.

When do you need to apply for a tax ID number?
1.       If your limited liability company has more than 1 owner.
2.       If your company employs employees.
3.       If your company is a partnership or a corporation.
4.       If you are paying income, taxes, or other wages to a non-resident alien.
5.       If your company is involved with organizations that include trusts, non-profits, estates, etc.

A tax ID or an employer identification number is used to identify a limited liability company for tax purposes in the same way that a Social Security number is used to identify an individual.


First and foremost, in order to apply for a tax ID, you will have to identify your entity type. Then you will need to fill out the information on the simplified one page tax ID form (SS-4) together with a one-time federal filing processing fee. Within an hour of submitting your online TIN application through the Inland Revenue Service website, you will receive your tax ID number from the IRS. If you need any help with the tax ID application, you can submit your TIN application through the Gov Doc Filing website. It is easy and almost hassle free.


Once you received the tax ID number, you can use it to open your business bank account, apply for a business license in your state, and file a tax return by mail. Some banks will need the official letter from the IRS and this may take up to a month for the letter to arrive. Then again the overall process is really painless and convenient. If you plan to for your very own LLC in the states, do so with peace of mind.

I am sure by now you have heard about OnePlus 6 feat in breaking records after records right? In just 22 days, one million OnePlus 6 devices have been sold globally which makes it the best-selling OnePlus flagship to date. Though selling 1 million unit is nothing to shout about when you compare that volume to Samsung or Xiaomi; then again it is an amazing achievement given the size of OnePlus, which also goes to show how good OnePlus 6 is and for many months to come as FLAGSHIPS KILLER! Samsung and Apple should be worried as their top of the shelves smartphones are getting ridiculously expensive.

Behold: OnePlus 6-Flagships Killer!

Yes. More and more consumers are turning to OnePlus 6 thanks to its affordable price point. It makes perfect logical sense to own a smartphone-OnePlus 6, which gives you more bangs for your hard-earned bucks. I mean why fork out US$1000 to buy a phone (think iPhone X) which is actually more or less the same as a US$529 (One Plus 6)? I have never been a big fan of expensive smartphones and hence will highly recommend those who want premium features and built for a phone without burning your wallet and pockets to get OnePlus 6.

OnePlus 6 is so beautifully designed that it puts the others to shame.

DISPLAY & BUILD
For starter, OnePlus 6 is a flagship on its own right. It has a tall, stunning 6.28-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a little notch which looks ultra beautiful. Flip to the back and you will delighted by the frosted glass-like matte finish which is not a fingerprints magnet. The polished back feels more like ceramic than glass. Throw in the elegant aluminium frame and you will get a beautiful device which exudes so much premium quality and touch. I will go as far as saying OnePlus 6 makes Galaxy S9 and iPhone X look boring and dull. :p


Stunning 3-D Multi-layered glass design.

PERFORMANCE
When it comes to performance, OnePlus 6 is the best Android phone on the market right now in terms of speed and performance thanks to its clean, stock Android OS which is not bloated and stuffed with unnecessary jingles and bells (softwares, apps etc.). OnePlus 6 outperformed Galaxy S9+ one Geekbench 4 benchmarking app which shows that the former is a smartphone of pure speed and responsiveness.

Beautiful speed demons crafted to perfection!

UNDER THE HOOD
Of course when it comes to parting money to buy a smartphone, the hardware and specifications of the device matter a lot as well. So here is a list of what you will get wit OnePlus 6:


  • Snappy Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip
  • Complemented by 64, 128, or 256GB of storage
  • 6GB or 8GB of RAM

  • $529 for 64GB of storage (6GB RAM)
  • $579 for 128GB of storage (8GB RAM)
  • $629 for 256GB of storage (8GB RAM)

For the uninitiated these listed specs of OnePlus 6 are way better than Samsung's Galaxy S9 or any other premium flagship Android phones available in the market right now. If you are price-conscious and a smart consumer, OnePlus should come in first when you are in the market hunting for a new smartphone with "future-proof" specs that will be light on your pocket.

Impressive cameras with Optical Image Stabilization.

CAMERAS
In this visually-stimulating era, the cameras of smartphones are becoming increasingly important and OnePlus 6 does not disappoint in this department either. The main rear camera consists of dual shooters sporting a 16MP (f/1.7f) complemented by a front-facing 20MP (f/1.7f) camera. OnePlus 6 now comes with Optical Image Stabilization which helps you to take great photos without the clumsy shakes. Autofocusing is snappy and precise, allowing you to snap all those priceless moments quickly. Moreover OnePlus 6 also can record 4K video at up to 60 frames per second and guess what slow-motion video can also be captured at High Definition up to 480 frames per second. Yeeeaa-aaa-aaiii? :D

OnePlus 6 - The Speed You Need - YouTube
OnePlus 6 is the speed you need!

VERDICT
Should you choose OnePlus 6 over all the other Android phones and iPhone X? The short answer is YES and the long answer is YEEEEEEEEES! Ha :D Jokes aside...other Android phone makers like Samsung should know that OnePlus 6 is not just a joke that they can ignore anymore. In fact, for merely US$529, OnePlus 6 boasts performance which dwarfs the expensive Galaxy S9, ultra-snappy Android OS, Gigabit connection (dual-LTE), best in class edge-to-edge display and yeah there is still a headphone jack (think iPhone X?) juiced by amazing marathon-like battery life. I rest my case.

Never settle for anything less than OnePlus 6!

It does not matter if you’re currently jobless or looking to take a step up in prestige, the search for a new career can be a stressful time. Not only do you need to stand out from everyone else in the field, but you also have to deal with the uncertainty of your professional future. While you could go flip the newspaper or browse the Internet and spend time responding to ads, this might not be the best strategy for success. Here are 3 reasons why you should work with Beacon Resources whenever you’re seeking a position in the finance or accounting industry.

Feeling hopeless because you are jobless?

1-Get Eyes on Your Resume
When a company posts an ad for a position, the hiring manager will most likely get inundated with unqualified applicants, which diminishes the likelihood of your application ever seeing the light of day. By working with an experienced team of finance recruiters California has to offer, you get the benefit of years of professional relationships forged with employers. That’s like having an insider targeting your resume to companies looking for people just like you. Or in other words, your chances of being hired will be increased dramatically.

Can't seem to get the promotion that you wanted?

2-Access to Unadvertised Positions
You could be selling yourself short if you limit your job search strictly to positions posted on the Internet. While this might seem like the easiest way to recruit, it does come with a few drawbacks for managers: 

● Extended time between need and hiring

● No gatekeeper to weed out unqualified candidates

● More time away from other managerial tasks


Instead of articulating needs into the massive void that is the Internet, many employers actually work directly with an accounting headhunter who will have a pool of qualified job seekers ready as soon as a position opens. It makes more sense to work with people who you are related than total strangers whose credibility is doubtful.


3-Give Your Job Search a Boost
If it’s time for a change in your career path, why limit your options by relying solely on the Internet postings? Contact Beacon Resources online today and get a team of experienced professionals working in your corner every step of the way. Sometimes you need more than effort alone to succeed, you need the right talent, the right place and the right time to help optimize your chances of being hired.

Sometimes you just need the help from the right people to help you get your dream job!

Some time ago, yours truly me brought my whole family to a fish market in Manhattan to celebrate her birthday. We bought a few mackerels and a huge lobster for us to cook later in the afternoon... OK...that didn't happen of course. And, certainly we did not fly all the way to New York to have seafood. However we did drive all the way to the Manhattan Fish Market in IOI City Mall, Putrajaya to enjoy our tantalizing luncheon to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was an important day for my big baby indeed. :)

Celebrating my birthday girl. :)

This was perhaps the 5th time we have dined in The Manhattan Fish Market to sample morsels of scrumptious seafood. I first tasted how good it is like 8 years ago back in KLCC. Since then I have always tried to have a bite of this lip-smacking seafood from Manhattan whenever I can such as in MidValley. This goes to show how I approve of this restaurant. *thumbs up* I am glad that last year, The Manhattan Fish Market has finally realized that Malaccans are rich enough to enjoy our platters of fish and chips and give us our very own Fish Market from Manhattan right here in Mahkota Parade. Ha :D

 Wait! Wait! Wait...I want to say something...

 Happy Birthday Mommy! :)

My little Jasmine was shy as usual. :p

OK! If I could have dined in Malacca, why would I take all the trouble to go to IOI City Mall in Putrajaya to eat a plate of Spaghetti in The Manhattan Fish Market over there? You will find out in one of my posts in the future. :p Like I have aforementioned, this meal was supposed to be my wife's birthday celebration...hence it had to be an awesome one at least in terms of portions. That was exactly what we did, by ordering a lot for us to feast on. :D

Mushroom soup as our appetizer.

Altogether we ordered 4 different dishes plus one soup of the day to gratify our hunger pangs. The first dish to land on our table was my Mediterranean Baked Dory (RM24). The flavourful blend of herbs and spices really baked the dory fillet to perfection, making it succulent and oozing with spicy goodness. Mix this spiciness of the fish and the aromatic garlic herb rice and you will have luscious tingling sensation in your mouth. *drooling*

My delicious Mediterranean Baked Dory

The next dish to be served was the mouth-watering Olio Shrimp (RM24) which was arguably the best pasta meal I have ever eaten in my entire life. The spaghetti was flawlessly cooked till it was 'al dante'-not too chewy and yet not overly mushy as well. Likewise Olio Shrimp would not be complete without these huge, succulent shrimp which tasted so fresh that I could not stop myself from having another...and another. Lastly a few dash of garlic and chili flakes totally complemented the spaghetti and shrimps, making this Olio Shrimp dish a fiery delight.

 Unbelievably good Olio Shrimp!

She loves it. :) 

I love her...I mean I love it too. :D

As for little Jordan and Jasmine, their taste buds were not fully accustomed to seafood yet. Therefore we needed a special order for them; One that they were familiar with...fries...egg and something cheesy. Both of them shared Fishy Chicky Bang Bang (RM25) which I thought sounded really hilarious. Bahahahaha :D Ok..back to the Bang Bang dish: Besides fries and egg, the main star for this dish was the heavenly match of dory and chicken, which sandwiched the irresistible cheddar cheese in the middle. Unfortunately there was some leftover which was green...of course. :p

Fishy Chicky Bang Bang-A cheesy delight inside out.

Last but not least, our most "gempak" (awesome) dish to arrive last was the Grilled Flaming Lobster Platter. It made quite a grand entrance, forcing us to be fixated by the burning flames, dancing in sync to blaze the huge, juicy lobster *drooling* (RM152). The sweetness of the fresh lobster made me yearning for more while I sucked my juicy fingers (gosh! This sounded so wrong). Though I am not a big fan of mussels, the garlic herb helped me review my opinion of the clams. You can never go wrong with fried calamari and crispy fish fingers as my two kids had shown. :)

 Here comes the highlight of our luncheon!

Buurrnnnnnn! 

If you smeeelllll......

Look at how the fire dances with the dead lobster! :D

My wife, Jordan, Jasmine and I had a unbelievable feast at The Manhattan Fish Market...one that we would not forget for a long time to come. Besides being so finger-licking good-Good, the food was of big portion and each of them was bursting with their own unique unmistakable flavours. Will we dine in The Manhattan Fish Market again? Definitely as it can be considered as the  De Facto seafood restaurant of our choice. :)

 Our Grilled Flaming Lobster Platter *drooling*

Happy Birthday my one and only wife. :p
I love you~Muack 

We wish that each of us had another stomach on that day. We could barely move with our bloated tummy towards the end. No picture to show. Sorry. Buuuuuurppppp....
