Once upon a time..
Friendster came to shore.. It was great for a while but a while it was..
Then there was Myspace.. must have come from outer space.. never really got hooked to it.
Then came Multiply.. Made lots of online friends and that’s about it.
Then hopped over to Facebook.. Had lots of fun there.. Still having some fun there.. And now..
I am on Google+
No wonder I have very little time to blog..
If you are on Google+, check out the Hangout.. Way cool!
Bert & Ernie
While bugs are drawn to lights, I was drawn back to this blog when I saw that picture on Google. While the bug phenomenon can be explained scientifically, I do not think that I can explain what that picture has got to do with my blogging… Nevertheless, here I am and Bert & Ernie still remain as puppets I love to watch and Happy 40th Anniversary to Sesame Street!
Smokers find it hard to quit. Bloggers are no different. There are times when I felt like not wanting to put these alphabets into words on this space ever again but when other things faded away, the craving was just too much to bear and the words start to form again and one more story enters the blogosphere…
The Other Things
What dragged me out? At first it was just work. A new job, a new place, new people, new this and new that. It took time to settle down. Apart from that, I was just plain lazy as plain as a vanilla ice-cream can be… Plain but tasty… If you like vanilla like I do…
Then Came the Dragons
With Google Maps at my disposal, I have no need for a global positioning system (GPS) device. I was thinking dreaming about getting myself a GPS enabled cellphone but since I discovered what Google Maps can do, I can just forget about GPS. GPS may have its own advantages over Google Maps but what Google Maps have what I need and therefore, that is good enough for me.
Using Google Maps for the first time: I had the opportunity to use it for the first time when I had to visit a client in Batu Pahat, Johor last Wednesday. They have shifted to a new office that was quite a distance away from the old place. I am not at all familiar with Batu Pahat and therefore, it would be an opportunity to put Google Maps to the test.
It is simple to use. I have already saved my home location and all I need to do is get the direction to my client’s place by by entering his new street address. Once that is done, I was given a map and a detail instruction to follow. My client had advised me to take the Ayer Hitam exit since that would make my finding the new place easier and due to that, I just need to drag the exit suggested from Yong Peng to Ayer Hitam and Google Maps plotted the new directions for me to follow. It was as simple as that.
