My first Blu-rays

I got my first Blu-rays yesterday courtesy of good ole Santa... I think it's a pretty good choice for my first Blu-ray discs. I can't wait to try them out and see how much different they are from DVDs. The Dark Knight is a two-disc special which also supports BD Live which is some special online enabled feature of sorts.

Just think, it was under 10 years ago that I got my first DVDs to play on my PS2... Now it's Blu-rays for my PS3! Way to go consumerism!

The N97 mini

Got a new phone! The average phone usually stays with me for about 2 years until I upgrade to something new. I had the HTC Touch for 2 years exactly and it was time to make the change! I enjoyed the touchscreen experience but missed actual hardware buttons, so the obvious choice was this beauty.

No more crappy cellphone shots on this blog ;)

Chip 'n Dip Kuwait

Chip 'n Dip opened at 360 Mall a couple of weeks ago... I was soo excited about it opening thinking it was going to be something like Dip 'n Crunch from Lebanon.

I went on Sunday and decided to try their fried prawns combo which comes with fries, sauces and a drink. The sauces include the classics like ketchup, honey mustard, mayo, bbq, chili etc. They also have some cool dips like mushroom, cream cheese, pepper mayo... none of which were available :( The prawns were processed prawn (maybe fish?) meat attached to a prawn tail and fried. The fries were alright yet nothing to wow about... To make a long story short, MAJOR disappointment. One good thing is they serve Coke instead of icky Pepsi :P

Check out a picture of the meal on the full post link below.

I just got Michael Jackson's This Is It CD. I had asked my dad to get me it while he was in the US. I already have most of the songs on the CD but I thought it would be my way of paying my respects to MJ.

I also just realized, it's been almost 9 years since I've bought an original music CD! Good job Dan... wait until all your favorite artists are dead THEN get their CDs :P
