Surface Book, Surface Pro 4, Lumia 950 and 950 XL and Band 2

That is Surface Book, which is advertised as ultimate laptop with all the power of laptop with dedicated GPU (dedicated video processing card). My jaw drops when I saw the screen can be detached from keyboard, which means Surface Book is also a tablet! And, the tablet needs to be light, so Microsoft keeps the dedicated GPU and secondary battery in the keyboard. Wow.. This is innovation!

But, do not expect this to be cheap:

i5 128GB 8GBRAM: USD 1499
i5 256GB 8GBRAM: USD 1699
i5 256GB 8GBRAM dGPU: USD 1,899 (This is the power of dedicated GPU)
i7 256GB 8GBRAM dGPU: USD 2,099 
i7 512GB 16GBRAM dGPU: USD 2,699 

Surface Pro 4 has more variety of price to choose for up to 1TB SSD now, but it seems similar to Surface Pro 3 when it was launched.

Sadly, Lumia 950 and 950 XL does not have enough spotlight, as the guy seems rushing the announcement of this flagship. With such a bombshell announcement of Surface Book, Microsoft should hold another event altogether of Lumia flagship.

And, yes, Band 2, this is more like an upgrade to Band 1, and I guess Microsoft will not advertise so heavily. 

But, I really hope all will be available in Singapore with interesting bundled pricing. Finger crossed.

I just recently find this site shopback quite interesting. The idea is that you need to click the link to go to few online sites (e.g. Groupon, Zalora, Courts, etc), and it will give you some cashback vouchers for your purchase, which can be ranged from 1% to 10% or even more for promotion or events.

You can also use this site to find current voucher code or promotion that you will miss out before your purchase. So, it is simple to use, just visit shopback first, search the online merchant you want to go, look for any promo there, and click the link to the merchant website to purchase. For most cases, you will be able to see the cashback under Pending status, which should be redeemable after 1-2 weeks. So far so good although I have not reached minimum amount to redeem yet ($10).

Guilty and Sorry

Thing happen to me recently which made me feel sorrow and sorry for what I have done. It's even worse because this will certainly affect the relationship that we had built for quite some times. Recently, I like to throw my emotion when something is not right or up to what I have expected, and the easy target is usually the one that is closed to me. I know it is wrong thing to do, but when thing happens, it's just difficult not to show the feeling. Up to one time, it is just a quite session while we are on the long way back to home. I could not help to break the ice, but the stupid pride took me back every time I tried to say something. In the end, I was back at home, felt so bad that I have misbehaved again. Hope that thing will be better tomorrow. Meredith in Grey Anatomy once said "Feeling is messy", and how true it is..

Pump 71

Just you think Pump 70 is just arrived and it is currently still in the gym till this weekend, several information for Pump 71 has been in the internet. Although I don't really like release 70 especially that awful shoulder track, but it's really tiring and good workout. Anyway, several track has been leaked out for Pump 71, and interesting abs track Circus by Britney Spears, and my all time favorite Linkin Park, What I've Done. And the new logo for this release will use water effect, quite cool though.

Squats: Summer of 69 – Mega-mania

Chest: Right Round – Flo Rider

Back: When love becomes a lie – Liz Kay (I think that’s right?)

Triceps: Black Fingernails, Red Wine – Eskimo Joe

Biceps: What I’ve Done – Linkin Park

Shoulders: Operation Blade – Public Domain

Abs: Circus – Britney Spears

Cooldown: Sober – Pink

I am a fan of pump, but wonder why my body doesn't reflect that.. Haha..

Pump 70

Just felt that Pump 69 was just released recently, I have read someone posted the upcoming released of Body Pump 70, here are several tracks that are mentioned:

Chest: Infinity 2008
Back: True Believer
Tricep: Christina Aguilera Keeps Gettin' Better
Bicep: Nickelback - Gotta be Somebody
Shoulder: Thunderstruck
Abs: Love Lockdown

I think Back and Chest track with little more remix will be awesome. As I am not big fans of rock, Shoulder track might needs heavy remix. However, look forward to this release.

This lady voice, that just performed in one of the audition for Britains Got Talent, caught youtube and internet by storm. It's so funny to see the judges' face when they realize that this old lady can sings very well. Well, I admit that sometimes I like to judge people by appearance, and later surprised by how different people from the look. This is a wake up call. :)

Just now did body pump in the gym, it's good to feel the muscle is tighten, but it's quite discouraging to see my tummy never shrink a millimeter.. Sigh..

Pump 69

After addicted to Step Class for past few months, now I get more and more addicted to Body Pump. First time attending launch of Body Pump 69 about two weeks ago, I didn't think I will like this release so much, but having done this release for 4-5 times, I think several tracks are really awesome, particularly squads with super bottom-halves made me burning until sweat drop, and killing shoulder tracks with great music from Bass Hunter. I almost never able to do full push up, but the last pump 69 by Tim on Monday, made me feel high and I managed to do full push up (ok2, admit I missed 2 last counts :p). I think it's the music, familiarity to the moves and of course, the encouragement voice from favorite Pump instructor. From all the tracks in Pump, I am still particularly weak in bicep and triceps, guess I need to practice a lot on my hand.

Just attended Collin's level 2 step class, I found his moves doesn't really change much. Several of my friends found his class is a bit boring nowadays. I prefer the dynamic moves by Daniel, which getting better and better.. Love it..

If you like the music from this release, you can listen here. Below is video for shoulder tracks (weird video though)
