hot mocha and food at Tully's
Just as everybody else, I like the perfect comfort that cafes brings. Especially nowadays when the temperature can go extreme. I usually envision myself inside a coffee shop preferably in the afternoon when the day is at it's hottest. Ideal to haul with your laptop, or your Kindle or maybe your Samsung Note or iPad to play Candy Crush while sipping your favorite frapp or brewed coffee. Oftentimes I come here just to people watch. To check out what other people are ordering ... read more »
Yesterday, I had a follow-up appointment with my urologist who did an ultrasound of my kidneys. Both are fine and functioning as they should be, with no trace of any lingering kidney stones. I spent quite a long time asking my doctor various dietary-restriction questions and based on what he told me, I wanted to offer some very "light advice", meaning this is advice catered to me and possibly to you, that he gave me. Bear in mind that I'm 45 and this is the first time in my life I've had kidney stones. F... read more »
作為一個資訊科技的愛好者，有新貨上架就當然要介紹下。 早幾天，Starbucks HK 就推出了一個全新My Starbucks Rewards™獎賞計劃，簡單來說就是儲積分然後換優惠。當然著數這東西就不是我的專長，可能去找著數達人 (https://www.facebook.com/JetsoMaster?ref=tsfref=ts) 會比較適合 (哈) 。不過我還是會做一些小功課，交章最後會簡單介紹今次的計劃的優惠。 然而，最吸引小弟的是一併推出的Starbucks Hong Kong Mobile App。當中除了有一般的Menu及分店介紹之外，還有In-App Purchase 功能，讓客人可以直接用手機App付款。這是香港一般連鎖店推出的Mobile App所缺乏的功能，可能因為市場太少，大多公司都懶得去研發。但其實以智能手機付款購物這種模式，於外國已經開始盛行，就例如Google Wallet、ISIS等等；相比之下、香港似乎就有點落後，。大家仍然習慣帶著一張二張卡出門消費。 不過聽石先生的BLOG說，八達通今年也有機會推出手機付款的服務，那希望到時就可以為市場帶來一番新景象，我們也不須再用... read more »
Backdated post : 29th -30th March 8 years ago, I was afraid that my 2nd child would have the same birthday as my niece. Birthdays are special dates. Of cos I understand that there are thousands, even millions out there who will share the same birth date as my child or children. But they are [...] read more »

This morning I saw something in my twitter feed from @YStarbucksSucks that said "Starbucks' coffee contains acrylamide which is known to cause cancer.”"… This annoyed me because people might be misinformed.
If you've never heard of acrylamide, here's all you need to know:
1) It's a compound that is found in coffee after the roasting process. It's also found in bread after baking. It's found in fries after frying… In fact, almost anything that goes brown during the cooking/baking/frying/roasting proces... read more »
In the last post I mentioned about different types of mobile payments in this one, I am going to talk about bar code payments in more detail, bar-code payments can be set up in two different ways :-
Smartphone-displayed bar code :
The customer goes to a store , selects the products scan them. Once purchases are scanned customer is ready to check-out, the retailer’s POS(Point Of Sale) system sends a billing transaction request to the server’s payment queue.
The server then sends a 2-D transaction b... read more »
