A so call "Seasoned IT Professional" who has worked for over 26 years in the Information Technology / Financial industry. One day it came to mind that should I continue to work in a fast lane or take a break.
Without any hesitation, I quit my job and start my new life.
家中的單車訓練台已設置兩年多，主角之一是帶領我踏入公路單車的 Giant TCR SLR1 及一對高性能 Fulcrum Racing Zero 輪組。把這對 Racing Zero 屈就在訓練台上，總是覺得有點可惜。
最近終於決定為 SLR1 來過 "降級"。
I have my indoor bike training platform for more than two years. The focus of the setup is the Giant TCR SLR1 that led me to the world of road cycling, and the set of high performance Fulcrum Racing Zero wheel-system. Frankly speaking, there should be much better use of the Racing Zero rather than leaving it as part of the indoor training setup.
Recently, I have made up my mind to "Downgrade" my SLR1.
I have written several unboxing posts covering life-style and IT related topics this month. To keep up the momentum, I have just completed another one.
With the widespread of the Wuhan Virus, we are required to stay at home and our daily life got seriously affected. Works had been put on hold and school life suspended. Work-from-home becomes major mode of work for adults and distance learning being adopted for students.
My boy has been away from school for nearly four months and has jumped on the video conferencing bandwagon recently.
Stepping into May, the weather is getting hotter and hotter. Along with those inconceviable and ridiculus things happened everyday, I got anxious very easily. Having a glass of cold coffee may make me feel relieved.
The coffee I'm going to have is not just coffee served with ice, it is the Cold Drip Coffee instead. So how is it related to the Cold Brew Coffee that got much attention in these days?
While social distancing is the way to go to minimise the spreading of COVID-19 among people, most of our daily activities are seriously affected. In particular, we have already stopped group riding for the past few weeks.
Instead of going outdoor, virtual cycling becomes my next best thing to do.
If you have read my previous post on my status update and flash visit to Taipei, you might notice a box of coffee was lying on the low left corner of the feature image.
This is one of the two Specialty Coffee products available under the Taiwan 7-11 City Cafe Premium sub-brand.
Just watched a YouTube clip from one of my subscribed channels https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcKiojKWOF0Tm7tRrXFSf7Q. From the title "[幹話連篇] 飛馬601N 使用心得", this seems to be a video review of the new coffee grinder. However, it turns out that there is NO actual discussion on the Pros and Cons of the machine despite it was pulled out and pushed back a number of times.
午後有點無聊，看了一段YouTube短片。單從標題"[幹話連篇] 飛馬601N 使用心得"，大家一定以為這是個全新咖啡磨豆機的用家報告。雖然片主多次的把磨豆機拉出拉入，可是直到這段短片的結尾仍然沒有討論過甚麼產品的亮點或缺點。
One of the measures taken here in Hong Kong to address the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus is "Work from Home". Such practice had been extensively adopted by me before my retirement. The impact to restaurants/cafes like us, that mainly served office workers, is a significant drop in business. We have to accept this as it ...
