Few photos from Phuket

If there is a place in the world that I’d call haven, it’ll be nowhere else rather than Phuket. Life has been rather hectic and I’ve recently decided to take few months off to explore new destinations. I’ve gone to a number of destinations but nothing impresses me significantly more than Phuket. 

If you ask me what’s it specifically that makes Phuket so unique, I can not be sure. Scenery. Weather. People. Food. A variety of all is what probably causes it to be so unique. 

Almost 10 years following the huge catastrophic tsunami that happened way back in 2006, you can sense that whilst the world has mostly forgotten about it, it’s not so with the people in Phuket. I can observe that many of the locals continue to be traumatic of the catastrophic tragedy. But most have managed to move on with their lives.

I’m not a professional photographer but I’d like to just share few images that I’ve taken while I was in Phuket. I am sure it’s going to offer you a peek of the last few remaining heaven on earth.

A random thought - how to pick the best kitchen appliances?

There’s no place better than home. It is no surprise that most of us would have heard of the saying ‘home sweet home. ‘If home is our haven, kitchen could well be the heart of it (at the very least for my case) as I spend the majority of my time in the Kitchen when I’m home and not sitting on my desk. It depends on your own preference and lifestyle, some of you may have another idea. I think that you would agree with me even though I’ve met a number of people who think kitchen is the last place in the home where they would want to spend their time at. If you are like me and often spend lots of time in the kitchen, ensuring we always have the best home appliances is paramount. Let me share a couple of devices that I consider as a must-have item for a great home and few things to consider before getting them. 

Thanks to all the junk food chains mushrooming all over the nation, the number of overweight Americans is higher-than in any other part of the world. Thank God, there’s already been active campaigns encouraging great and healthier lifestyle. Most health authorities suggest the intake of fresh fruit and green juices, shakes and yoghurts. These are no question items that you’ll find being sold off the shelves inside your local store but I prefer making them on my own since it would mean fresher produce. If as recommended by the experts, you drink a glass of juice daily, getting the best fruit juicer is something that you want to seriously consider. To start off with, it’s worthwhile to understand the distinction between a masticating and a normal juicer. The top-rated masticating juicer doesn’t cost little but if you read all the juicer assessments, you will understand just why this can be so. Juices squeezed out of a masticating juicer is surely a class above that of a regular juicer and it’s something that you’d only appreciate once you’ve it within your home and start making your own favorite vegetable or fresh fruit juices. 

Fridge is one appliance which you will discover in almost every household. Are you able to recall entering a house without fridge inside? Seriously speaking, I am unable to. I believe you jolly well know most of the rationales on why we are in such need of this item. You’ve to consider your-self really fortunate if your refrigerator unit lasts you more than five years as five years is the typical lifespan of any standard refrigerator unit sold in the market today. Any appliance manufacturer could let you know that refrigerator is such a profitable business. With the large number of manufacturers coming into the scene, particularly with the growing success of brands such as Samsung, it is becoming more and more challenging to choose the finest refrigerator. It is for that reason important that even before selecting a specific model and find its evaluation, you must go through the reviews of the brand (such as for instance Samsung refrigerator reviews) and figure out what the general satisfaction with the company pertaining to this particular product segment. It might come as a surprise to you that even some large brands proves to be new players to this business. 

Dishwasher is one kind of home appliances that’s good to own however not many are able to afford it. I would consider myself fortunate if I’ve a dishwasher system at home and it’s good to know the best dishwasher doesn’t come inexpensive. Before even consider buying one, there are few things that you need to be familiar with. Most importantly, do a check to all your tableware collections - from cups to pasta plates to serving dishes - and see what materials they’re made of and if they’re made to withstand the temperature of a dishwasher. Some cups will crack under heat and I’m sure you do not wish to find yourself changing all your dishes after purchasing your dishwasher. This is only 1 of the numerous things that you need to consider based on the different dishwasher evaluations that I have stumbled upon. 

As you can see, I am particularly excited to share my kitchen and the stuffs found there. If you’re equally excited, then I’m convinced that you would always want to get the top-rated kitchen appliances for the kitchen. To really make the greatest homemade margaritha pizza, you would need the finest pizza maker. If you want to make your own fritters (though it is not recommended for health purpose), then obtaining the best deep fryer is vital. Do your-self a small favor by discovering the best models for the sort of appliance which you want to get prior to making your purchase. If you are buying a microwave oven, get the list of most recommended microwave ovens for 2014 and perhaps not 2013. For now, I leave it to you to examine and I hope my short discussion has given you an insight about the considerations that you have to be watching when you are buying the next pair of appliances. 

This is how close we are towards drone delivery

The race is ON! The utilization of drone for non-military purposes will be here sooner than we thought. 

When there is anyone who is most responsible in building all of the buzz, it’ll be none other than Amazon and the gang. Using the latest holiday delivery hiccup still fresh on our mind, Jeff Bezo is probably correct in thinking that drone is probably the perfect solution to his last-mile delivery bottleneck and FAA was quick to respond to that. Licenses for drone testing have already been given to a total of 20 states. 

But Lakemaid Beer, a small brewery firm located in Minneapolis, went one step further. They’ve really used a drone to send their delivery orders. It made an enormous splash around the globe and gets everyone excited. FAA is quick to put out the flame of excitement. An order to ground the unmanned aircrafts was quickly released to the company. Many marketing students could clearly tell that it’s one outstanding PR stunt. But I offer my praise to Lakemaid Beer. 

This really is just the tip of the iceberg and there are numerous wonderful things to come. As sky could be the limit, we will never know what the future holds until it turns into a reality. 

How I wish it was my beer that the drones were carrying. I’ll leave it to your imagination for the time being!
