Alder Lake Refresh!

For quite a while, I have been having issues with one of my SSDs on my current gaming rig. Sometimes, it will just not be detected by the computer and the entire drive will just disappear. This can be quite frustrating when I need to start a game that was installed on that particular drive... Continue Reading →

My first virtual run medal

So I mentioned several times that I have been taking up running again after a long hiatus. I have been using the treadmill at the gym and I have enjoyed the experience tremendously.

Calvin Klein Defy

Last week I realised that almost after two years of applying Dior's Sauvage eau de parfum as my main cologne for everyday wear, it was starting to run out. I almost finished the entire bottle. It took that long to finish the 60ml bottle for two main reasons. First, the pandemic, which resulted in me... Continue Reading →

Documenting my daily life more

Pictures and videos of travels and other significant events in my life are important and I love documenting and sharing them for memories’ sake but I think it is equally important...

I bought The Frame

Ever since my family moved to a 3-room flat, I spent significant time and effort to make my room my very own sanctuary. I selected my wall colors, lighting and even the furniture to look exactly how I wanted my room to be. A year on, and it has paid off in spades. I enjoy... Continue Reading →

I bought a Nintendo Switch Lite.

I am not mobile gamer, much less a handheld gamer. But last week I pulled the trigger and bought the Nintendo Switch Lite. I initially almost bought the Nintendo Switch, the one with the dock and the ability to play when plugged to the TV. But I decided to go for the cheaper option, after... Continue Reading →
