Eye-Fi card.

by on Dec.21, 2011, under Personal

I got new Eye-Fi card which you cant buy from Singapore. I need to ship it from Amazon.com. I lost one of it when I borrow from Alan about a year ago. That mistake cause me S$190. Well the price has come down now. The new Eye-fi card only cost me
around S$78 before shipping.

So what is Eye-Fi card. It is a SD card.. haha… but with WIFI capability[Don’t confuse with SD-IO card]. Eye-Fi is been designed to transfer the file over the wifi to your pc. For examples, you come back from photo shooting and you need to take your card from camera and plug to your pc card reader, copy the file and put it back to your camera. Oh most of the time you forgot put it back to your camera and next time go out with big camera without card inside. Here come Eye-Fi card to the rescue, you come back from photo shooting and all you need to do it enable the Eye-Fi. All the files magically appear in your computer. Easy right. You will need to setup your WiFi prior to that.

So here i got mine and configure up and running. One of the most advantage of this is the unlimited space capabilities. It can continuously uploading while you continue shooting, I notice the upload stop when your camera saving the file then it continues. It took about 2-3 sec to upload a 18 mega pixel jpeg file on the Wifi 802.11n network. I still have not get this tested on actual usage. My friend comment that this is draining lots of camera battery even when you turn it off. Well, I will test it out this Eye-Fi card this Chinese New Yaer in Malaysia.

PS: I found there is a store selling Eye-Fi card in Malaysia and the price quite reasonable. Hit the link below to see their price

Update: Remove link that sells Eye-Fi. No longer exist

Bintan: Agro Resort Honeymoon Package

by on Nov.16, 2011, under Personal, Travel

Finally, I decided I must at lease visit this nearby island once. So, I plan to give my beloved bb a big surprise and a romantic trip.

Searching thru all the hotel and reviews on tripavisor, I finally gives Bintan Agro resort a chance to hold this important trip. This price are reasonable comparing to those hotel in north east of Bintan. At lease something I can afford for the nice romantic trip.

The trip to Bintan took off from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, I wish to give her a relax and enjoyable trip so we go by Taxi directly from home. The ferry trip took use 2 hours 30 mins IMG_9138.jpgwhich really long compare to 1 hour 45 min suggested by most traveler. Both of us were tired and we slept thru the ferry trip.

We arrived at Bintan’s Tanjung Pinang Ferry Terminal at around 2pm Indonesia time. I was expecting the place more modern compare to Batam but seems like it the same. The building are old and pretty rural.
We then take another 45 min van to the resort. I think I was lucky this time as I do not feel nausea which usually I do on the long trip. Road trip were pretty bumpy and the road are narrow. Most of the motorist does not follow the traffic rules. They just cross red light like no body business. Another finding is their house shape is only rectangle or square.

First impression on arrival of the resort is no so promising. The garden were not well maintained and the furniture in the lobby are pretty old. The check in too quite some time and I have to decide the food for dinner(only 3 choice!!).

So they bring us to our room on ground floor (I asked for room exchange and was rejected. ).. I was hoping it is 2nd floor so i can have nice view of the sea and more privacy as I can leave the curtain open. As I enter the room and I feel so surprise, they were nicely decorated. Very very romantic feel with the pink balloon all over the place. It has a small balcony outside(but no chair). Anything after this please see the picture.
