Updated Serato DJ to version 1.9.10

17/02/2018 Leave a comment

I finally decided to upgrade my version of Serato DJ to 1.9.10 and so far, so good. There was nothing wrong with 1.9.6. I have been using Serato DJ 1.9.6 for quite some time, since May 2017 to be honest. It is just that in the versions after Serato DJ 1.9.6 there has been added support for newer hardware like the Roland DJ-202, DJ-505 controllers, to say nothing about Denon’s new offerings. The last thing I want is when I go to a club, plug in my Macbook and it doesn’t recognise the hardware. There has been rumours of a new version of Serato named Serato DJ Pro. I will try that out once it comes out

Subscribed to Spotify

17/02/2018 Leave a comment

It has been a few weeks since I subscribed to Spotify Premium and so far, I am enjoying it. I have used it as a playback device on my Xiaomi tablet and it was a great success at a party at my house a couple of weeks back. It is not that expensive…just about $10 a month and very worth it. The only thing I do not like about it is that there are some songs that I cannot find in it…but that is understandable, given the huge expanse of songs out there. I just hope that those songs will finally be added. So if you are reading this post and wondering about it, get it.

I got this from the Internet and it comes courtesy of Ray’s Photo Collection by a gentleman named Raymond Godfrey. It shows the school bus that I used to ride in to school when I was a kid. I always wanted to know the model of the bus and I finally came upon it while searching the Internet. I remember this van or bus being pretty small with an engine that was not really very powerful. I remember that it struggled a bit to go uphill with a full bus of schoolkids. So I did a search and found the engine these buses used, in this clip from YouTube.

Remember all…today is Ash Wednesday and therefore it is a day of fasting an abstinence. It also marks the start of the Season of Lent that ends with Easter Sunday. Remember…thou art dust and unto dust thou shalt return

HaiDiLao at Clarke Quay license suspended

13/02/2018 Leave a comment

It was all over the news just now.  It seems that the Clarke Quay branch of popular hotpot restaurant HaiDiLao has been suspended for two weeks by the National Environment Agency (NEA). The branch there had accumulated 12 demerit points over the last 12 months. Apparently, the restaurant had incurred six demerit points for the handling of food with bare hands and another six points for selling food which was unclean. From what I was told, they even washed mops that were used to clean the floors in the sink where they washed utensils.

HaiDiLao was also fined S$800 and all the food handlers working in the outlet will be required to attend and pass the Basic Food Hygiene Course again before they can resume work as food handlers.

But you know the funny part? On their website, and on their closed premises, they said that they were closed fr renovations! Come one you fellas. Unhygienic food handling is just that…unhygienic food handling. But this is not new. Another restaurant named Deen Biasa in Jalan Sultan gave the same excuse when they were suspended for substituting mutton with beef!

ELv 70v speakers

I have been looking around for this brand of speakers here in Singapore but I cannot seem to find them. I saw these speakers being installed in a half-constructed school project and I must say that they sound pretty good for what I was told was the price they were bought for. These will be useful for other projects I have where one needs to buy a helluva lot of speakers for corridors and the like.
