If you are a mobile phone user who still hasn’t jumped on the Smart Phone bandwagon .. Pay attention! I know many who are happy with the Calling & SMS functions and dish out an average of RM 600 , this is the phone you need. Samsung released the Galaxy Mini 2 on the 14th of May 2012 in Malaysia to the appearance conscious consumers. While they say that it’s for the appearance conscious, I think that if you are looking to try out a Smart Phone but don’t want to part with too much money, this is your gig.
This 3.27″ screen device comes with a 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage which is expandable through microSD (Supports up to 32Gb). In normal terms, it’s not as big as a iPhone, not as expensive as a iPhone but does the job! If you are wondering, wait now if it’s a entry-level .. What’s the camera like? It comes with a 3MP camera, this is almost as good as the iPhone 3GS which came with a 3.2 Megapixel camera. Whats surprising is for the price point, the Galaxy Mini 2 comes with Near Field Communication (NFC) support built-in,
This device runs on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) which is a very easy to use operating system which has more than 500,000 applications on Google Play, Android’s App Store. So if you are worried of how you are going to ‘graduate’ from your conventional phone to a Smart Phone, don’t fret .. It will be a very seamless and fun experience!
When i got my hands on the device, I was concerned on how slow the phone might be considering the processor but to my surprise the device responded very well to touch and has good response time. What i like best about the Android Operating System is the ability to customize the phone. There is no one formula, you are free to add widgets and set up multiple pages the way you want it.

Being a weekend, the traffic was under control. The organizers did extremely well by placing their staff all over the venue to guide the crowd thru collecting their tickets and getting to their seats.
We were lucky to get our selves some very good tickets on the South Entrance which was on right side of the stage. The was the same announcement that kept repeating again and again reminding the crowd not to record or use any electronic devices during the show or they will be ejected.
Taking the stage first was DJ Spinbad . He played a 30 minute set on the decks and i love his performance. It was very evident that he was all about the music unlike many deejay’s who are about the showmanship.
Next up was Andrew Netto, a local act who came out to kick-start the show. He was very good! With the local touch i was impressed and will be checking out his full shows soon!
Up next was Russell Peters official opening act for his Notorious Tour, Joey Medina . Joey Medina is a very funny guy, a former boxer who fought many tittle fights , which he obviously didn’t win according to Russell Peters .. so he ended up in comedy :p
Finally Russell Peter’s toke on the stage! The crowd went crazy to see him hit the stage. While there was some fear that he might come out with the same jokes that we are used too. Boy did he live up to expectations! The whole set was brand new and jokes and content that we have not heard about! As usual the first row had it coming. A blond Malaysian, the big Bhupinder Singh (who he became very fond off and started calling him “Bhup) and the group of 3 students from Zambia was regular targets! It was awesome! He even sneaked in a few swipes at Singapore which got the crowd going crazy!
No spoilers from me but the show was worth every single cent! I will definitely be buying the Official DVD from this tour which should be out later this year. If you are contemplating this show, don’t think twice!
Liverpool FC have launched their new 2012/2013 kit which is sponsored by the Warrior Sport. The kit takes a feather off the past and has brought back the yellow. At a glance it looks very 60′s-70′s but i think this will be a kit that will get more pleasing the eye as you look at it more.
One of the most significant changes is the logo on the kit which is in gold and simplified. A very classy touch by featuring the Hillsborough 96 at the back (top) of the kit.
If you get it now, you are guaranteed a 1st of June 2012 delivery and LFC t-shirt worth up to £20 while stocks last
Head over to the Official Store and check it out!
2 sending off’s and 4 goals conceded, that was the plot at White Hart Lane. Liverpool stumbled to their 2nd defeat of the season to a superb Spurs at the London team’s home. The match was all Spurs for me, Liverpool were lost and couldn’t find their footing and it was a desperate performance which Spurs deserved.
Skrtel started in the right back position, it was probably due to the injuries for Glen Johnson and Martin Kelly that left a void in the left back position which Skrtel had to fill. The obvious choice would be Carra but with Gareth Bale attacking the on that flank, it would have been a difficult task for the deputy captain to cover. Skrtel was eventually sent off during the match together with new signing Charlie Adam’s who was sent off in the 1st half after a second yellow card after a bad tackle on Scott Parker.
Credit to Spurs for the professional performance but Kenny Dalglish has an uphill task to get the team to work harder on the training ground to get the fitness and tactics of the players up to keep going.
Its going to be a difficult season and such performances gives a sneak peek of the mammoth task in hand to get into European spots this season.

4th match of the season saw LFC heading to the Britannia Stadium to take on Stoke City. Stoke City is one of the teams that have done very well in the BPL. Gone are the days where there were 4 really strong teams and the rest of the league scrambling for their survival in the Premier League, the leagues is much wider now. There are 6 teams in my view who can challenge for the tittle and there is a good 10 teams who are pushing to break into that top 6. And then there is the relegation battle.
LFC went into this match with pretty much a new team. Many players have left the team and the new signings are now carrying the team forward under the guidance of Kenny Dalglish.
The match ended with Jon Walters’s penalty which he won and scored. But the interesting stat was that Liverpool had 73% possession in the match but was unable to break down the resilient Stoke defense who defended with their lives to hold on to the 20th minute goal.
Make no mistake, Liverpool had a good 70 minutes to find an equalizer leave alone a winning goal but it was just not their day. What was truly good for me was the way the team passed the ball around and the constant attacking to find the goal. Should have done much better and convert the opportunities that were created, a certain Jordan Henderson could have been the star but his attempts were defended by the constant sliding and diving to ensure the Stoke net went un-breached.
Yes its a the first defeats but im optimistic, Liverpool must keep going to be up there in the mix come the new year which will be the indication if Liverpool will be in the mix to challenge for the elusive tittle that we have been waiting for – YNWA
