Experiencing Adobe Creative Suite 5.5

Back in April, I was invited to be a prestigious member of the Adobe Influencers Programme. If you don't know what that is, believe me it is a great deal to me and to you if you are in the design industry. We were gathered around and given fresh insights about Adobe and its products.

The good exercise that came out from this is, I get to test out the Beta version of new Adobe Creative Suites and then share it with you so that you can understand better before you make your purchase.

I was awarded the Adobe CS 5.5 - Web Premium
- of course being a multimedia designer you would love to have the Master Collection. (Psst, we studied multiple media's marrr -- ahemm i hope Adobe hears this so I can do a major test on the others as well)

These are my everyday software, without them I'd die. Literally.

The CS 5.5 Web Premium includes:- Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, Dreamweaver, Fireworks,Acrobat Pro and a couple more fantastic software that could do this world a better good.

Gonna show you a little bit of how a small but powerful tool can make a difference.. below is a snapshot of what I did..

And this is how it turn out ...a 6ft signage for the office and a 3inch version as a name card. People always say "OMG, you have the big version of your name card, can I take that home?" Haha obviously No!

Next is the Illustrator, I have been vectorizing for many many years now. I remember switching from the older version to CS3 -- I went whoaaa "jaw dropped". The GUI looks so advance and soothing to the eye.

Same feeling now.

Enough about fun stuff, Dreamweaver is all about flexibility and convenience. You gotta try out the CSS function because it is HTML5 ready and it has a preview screen of how your web can look from an iPhone, iPad and the browser with just a single change of a CSS code.

Talking about it just gives me the goosebumps and excitement of getting back to work.. I wanna workkkk now!

Last but not least is the Flash Pro. The conversion for mobile engine is crazy. I haven't got enough time to explore into that yet, but the AS is taking my skills to a whole new level.

I guess we should start offering new services too?

Was lurking around adobe.com and saw a promo, I guess if you are dying for a Adobe software go buy one now!

You may look for Rajdish Singh from Text 100 if you are interested. He could round you up with a good figure. Raj can i have some sort of a commission for this? Hahaha anyway give Raj a call at +6017 2419 519 or mail him at rajdish.singh@text100.com.my

I am watching this and you should too!

Sunday Post : Happy birthday Daphkisses

A planned dinner at souled out with the lovelies and hey it's Daphne's birthday! May you have a blessed birthday Daphne.

See she looks adorable with that funny looking hat on. She must have really love the hat or else she wouldn't cover her face when everybody is trying to take a photo. Haha.

Of course you must have a flaming we said to Daphne... and so she did.
That's Eric explaining to Daphne a little bit about the drink and how she should consume it without burning herself. Haha.

This two are the most gorgeous looking people that night I must agree. *hahaha*

Anyway watch the video below on how Daphne had her first flaming in her entire life. Enjoy..

The last day of Hong Kong

Life has been so interesting lately that i've forgotten about my continuation of my Hong Kong post. Well let's get back on track.

This is the final day of  Hong Kong and it begin really early in the morning. Of course disturbed by the very early Daphne but its all good or else we would have missed out great breakfast at the Enchanted Garden.

This time it was a light one for me, the lotus leaf rice and a char siew bao.

Anyway I never miss out my english breakfast too, so another round. We were exhausted so there wasn't any pictures of us. Funny part is when the Disney character comes by asking us to take photos, we said nahhhhhh! Did that yesterday, you run along now. Haha.

This is the day Daphne got her new camera from a stranger in Hong Kong. I followed her to Sunny Bay and met up with the lady and her ang moh boyfriend. While Daphne paid her, I was just checking if the camera was good. It was.

We didn't want to go back to the hotel, so we decided to enter Disneyland without Jaclyn first.

Walked around here and there and bought more stuff. Mostly souvenirs. If I didn't get you one, i apologize.

After an hour of walk, Jaclyn finally arrived. She must have "oh si" or something back in the hotel which took her so damn long.

Wah lah! A pinch of fresh air with Disney's castle.

We decided to make this day a relaxing one since its our last. Took the little train ride that brings us around the park. Pretty short ride but was good enough. Too long might have been too boring.

The entire journey, Daphne was just doing this...

Got a few great shot but I guess it feels much better to experience it yourself.

I guess this is it, hope there would be another chance of me coming back there for a holiday again.

Thank you for viewing and coming up next what we did in the airport on the way home...

Move your body out on the floor
Put your troubles aside and start living
Anybody can let go
Throw away all your problems 'cause right now it's party time

Girl, don't feel outta place
'Cause I, I'm in love with this feelin' now
And I, I hope that this will last a while
We should make it last a while

You like to drink, so do we
Get my bottles, bring 'em to me
Hold your glasses up, people everywhere
Now everybody put your hands in the air, say

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I wanna see you tonight
Yeah, yeah, yeah, girl, I gotta
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
I gotta, I gotta, I've gotta see you tonight

Oh, oh, oh, let me see your hands
Oh, oh, oh, tonight is the night

Just in the moment, can't believe
You're so beautiful, feels like I'm in a dream
Baby, we're going somewhere you've never been before
So take my hand and come with me

Girl, don't feel outta place
'Cause I, I'm in love with this feelin' now
And I, I hope that this will last a while
We should make it last a while

You like to drink, so do we
Get my bottles, bring 'em to me
Hold your glasses up, people everywhere
Now everybody put your hands in the air, say

(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Oh, oh, oh, tonight, tonight is the night

All the pretty young things at the party
Let me see your hands up
And if they mad and they don't wanna party
Tell them shut the fuck up

So, DJ, turn it loud
And watch me turn it up
Don't worry about it, we here to party
So jump, jump, jump, jump

Sunday Post : Bak Kut Teh, Klang

The lady has a huge craving for bak kut teh and especially from Klang. So this is how it begins.. owh there's pork picture in here :P

Got up pretty early and warmed up the engine a little bit before my sneak attack plan.

Aha just kidding, she was sleeping like a babi before we had some babi. Was suppose to go to the pottery bak kut teh (which is not in klang) but we went to klang anyway and found the original.

This was ok, the soup tasted how it should and it wasn't salty at all. Nice! Not so healthy for breakfast but hey we've got to do it once in a while yeah?

A little video..

Pirates of the Caribbean : on stranger tides

Had lunch earlier the day with Jason and he successfully brain washed me to jailbreak my phone. Needed some tune up back at the office after that but everything went perfectly fine.

I am loving my weekends, always looking forward to do something nice with the lady. Today we watched Captain Jack Sparrow did his thingy, but before that dinner at brotzeit.

Being new to all this has its way to express better photos effects. I guess i'll have more photos like this taken because the bulky thingy is going to chill at my display glass for a bit. My aunt from the US say you've found a dime already please switch your damn status from single to taken. (point taken)

While waiting for our foods, we were playing with "Words for Friends". Its scrabble in another words. Its fun, download it and its free.

We both had the port cutlet and the grilled pork fillet medallions. They are both yummy.

Met one of the lady's best friend @stephhhiie. Pretty sweet girl I must say.

Our show is starting and hope you guys enjoy your weekend as I am going to enjoy mine to the fullest. Right baby?

2 years of great experience

It has been with me for a long 25 months and I never had one for such a long time before. This little buddy served me well and probably saved my life many times. Not only that it made new friends for me as well here and there.

Due to the fact that it has lower capabilities than the blackberry now, the blackberry storm 1 has its strong points to me in someways. I bet the blackberry storm 3 will definitely impress me.

To those who have me in Blackberry Messenger, I guess it didn't manage to update the status to "I'm changing to an iPhone now". It's probably still the same "Extraordinary way"... but I like that though.

Some said that I should put my storm to rest because where ever I am, i'm always on my phone talking to someone. Actually I was bbm'ing most of the time with Jessy and everybody noticed, the self giggling help made it to the highscore chart.

It was worth it.

... and now the new story begins

Hello iPhone.

For those who voted, thank you and lets just say the majority has won the vote.

Anyway, continue voting!

Tong Sui with crazy people

Hong Kong continues...

After dinner we decided to walk a little bit at the night market and then went off for tong sui at Causeway Bay. We took a cab to the nearest station.

I really like their MTR trains. Clean, windy, civilize, fast and efficient. Agnes, Ponnie and Daphne possing all the way.

As soon as we got there, Daphne said "Hey I want a photograph of the phone booth". Ermm.. Ok.

Finally I met up with the rest of the pack. This is Lun and everybody calls her the tall girl. Why? Because shes really really tall! And I am actually standing on top of the curb.

Always love a great group shot. Can't wait for another one. Sometime nearer I hope!

This is Emil! I love the way he dresses up. According to Daphne, he is so Hong Kong street style! I do agree actually and the way he talks is super duper hilarious. Can laugh the whole night with this fellow.

That's Lun, playing with my camera again. Super poser this women.

Awww look, the little one is finally tired. Ok ok and we headed back to our hotel. The rest of the pack went out for drinking somewhere. I'll join you guys the next round.

A brand new day next!

Dinner at Temple Street, Mongkok

Finally it is dinner in Mongkok. I really like the feel of crampy restaurant and all of us had to sit closely to one and another. If you don't do that in Hong Kong, then you are not in Hong Kong.

So here we go, "Yum Char Lahhhhh"

This is how the restaurant looks like. It looks big but in actual fact that is a mirror reflection at the end and we are already seated at the corner of the wall. Hey welcome to Hong Kong :D

Of course we didn't know what to order so the girls did. Me and Daphne just nom nom nom as we were hungry. I blame Daphne as she wants to see this and that. Pfft! Anyhow the food was good, delicious and I actually forgotten to take the fried rice which taste pretty good actually. Too hungry, sorry lah!

This is Ponny and Agnes. I've known them for 7 years and they still look the same since the last I saw them back in 2005. You guys are always the best tour guide ever.

This is Daphne... "Woi Malaysia don't have seafood mehhh?"

Coming up next, meeting with a few more friends before we head home and of couse Tong Suiiiii!

Temple Street, Mongkok

Finally the buddies got to us and first thing we did before dinner was to check out temple street. It's more like our Petaling Street, but Miss Daphne insist on going as she wants to get some stuff.

According to Daphne, this scene look very much like a drama.. with the little mini van.

While walking, we stumble  upon a little shop by the streets that sells cute little handset covers. Didn't buy any though..

And of course those famous curry meat balls that everybody should try. There's smelly tofu too! Also didn't have any, else the girls is gonna kick me out of the room.

A cute combination with those little hello kitty packet drinks and a few sausages. Yummy.

We took a cab after that to temple street. It is really near but one thing I learned about the hong kong people is... if possible don't walk. Haha.. Or maybe my buddies were just too nice and didn't want us to walk.

This is where women go crazy. There were so many until Daphne said "Simon please choose for me, you know my style" .. Wowww for a moment there I felt like a fashion stylist. We managed to get just one pair though, others look too .. ermm... not Daphne. Haha.

Guess what we had for dinner? Tomorrow will tell :D
