Iphone 7 - Its the latest!!

Can you imagine how I would have felt waking up to an almost malfunctioning hand-phone? Scary oh-boy! My heart started beating fast and I was literally in tears because without a hand-phone, I think life will fall apart. Even though I am not at all a hard-core social media addict, a phone is essentially a must to check my mails and to receive and make calls as well. We do have a house phone, but supposedly a hand-phone is definitely a matter of convenience anywhere in the house and also primarily for emergency purposes when I am out.

Hence, waking up to a 6 year old “iphone 5s” that presumably is dying a slow death shattered my day. I knew something is wrong with its touchscreen. Obviously going soon, I then  had to decide between getting it repaired or perhaps upgrade my social status with iphone7. My other half on the hand who have been insisting I should have changed my phone two years ago repeated the same thing over and over again. Hearing him out one final time, eventually, after carefully considering my savings, I thought I might as well get a new phone at Blue Cube Sunway. Checking out its price and monthly package offered by my service provider I have been faithfully loyal for 22 years, I was hoping for trading in. When told it’s impossible (remember, my phone is out of order?), I was still adamant about getting it repaired first. So, off to Machines Sunway and then to Machines Mid-Valley where repair is done besides at KLCC, one week to repair at RM400.00 or two weeks for the same new (yes new) phone at RM500.00 didn’t lure me.

I then returned back to Bluecube and bought iphone 7(256GB) instead of opting for iphone 7plus which was not in stock. Furthermore, a spilling-over waiting list, anyway, for me, big is not necessary better yea. A small phone is preferred instead of a bigger one which can possibly fall off or can attract the “Kabalis/Indian Street Notorious Guys”. Long gone also carrying handbag for the same fear of being robbed, I paid RM2690.30 (GST 152.28), I opted for the RM150.00 monthly package and another RM300.00 for a cover and protective shield at one of the shops in Sunway Pyramid.

Returning home at about 5.30pm feeling really exhausted after the long walk and drive, of course, iphone 7 brought a broad smile on my face. Having been toying around with it for the past 2 weeks, let me now tell you if it was worth the purchase. 
Compared to 5s at 64GB, I am loaded with a bigger storage in iphone7 (256GB)
As a blogger, I take pictures crazily. So obviously I am really happy.

Vast improvement, pictures are truly stunning with iphone7 (12 megapixels, Quad LED & High Dynamic Range mode (HDR) & Two cameras that shoot as one).
In fact, my Canon EOS 100D is literally crying out, begging me to use it.
As said earlier, big is not necessary beautiful for a small size lady like me.
I would have still been happy with iphone 5s (123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm (4.87 x 2.31 x 0.30 in) compared to Iphone 7 (138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm (5.44 x 2.64 x 0.28 in). But of course, naturally, a bigger phone must logically be slightly heavier, yet both fared at an average of 5.3 oz (150g). I guess its a plus point. 

Please don’t ask, I know nuts about the whole theory of OS. Apparently iphone 7 must be better right?

Other updated features on iphone 7
Retina HD Display
The brightest, most colorful iPhone display yet.
The most powerful chip ever in a smartphone.
Faster LTE with the best worldwide roaming.
New black and jet black finishes
Splash and water resistant
New Home button (for other features please hover at Apple iPhone 7).
Honestly, I bought iphone 7 mainly because I know that a 6 year old phone eventually will head to the museum. If it was still its normal self, I would have definitely kept my money for travelling. But once I read about Iphone 7's updated features prior to pitching this post, no regrets albeit I am still discovering it day by day till this day. While hoping this phone will take me through for the longest time, iphone 7 is yet proven as splash and water resistant since nothing of that sort I have messed up. Whereas I should be able to nail it in another two weeks if this phone is sensational for worldwide roaming during another of my globe trotting. Nevertheless, I sincerely don’t want to drop iphone 7 to discover what sort of consequences is waiting for me.   
By the way, my old phone has been repaired and I have downloaded my plentiful pictures. Only if I didn’t generously over charge it, the battery wouldn’t have expanded to push up the touchscreen. Silly me yea! Then again, with a iphone 7, people actually think I am rich and successful. Speak about iphone and perception, shall we?

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
