With the steady move of our daily computing from old-form desktops and laptops to tablets, especially touch-screen tablets, Acer has made the huge leap in providing the world’s first 8.1 inch tablet with Windows 8 operating system installed.

The Acer Iconia W3 tablet will sport the latest Intel Atom dual-core processor, 2GB of Ram, either 32GB or 64GB built-in memory and the ability for memory expansion through the use of micro-SD cards, a touch-screen LCD and the Intel GMA-HD graphic cards for gaming on the go. It is also significant to note that all Acer Iconia W3 models, either 32GB or 64 GB, will include Microsoft Office Home and Student pre-installed.

Your PC in One Hand. The Acer Iconia W3 tablet puts desktop PC capability in a tablet, so you can work and play on the go more conveniently than ever, making mobile-computing much more mobile than before.

Full Productivity. The Acer Iconia W3 will come with Microsoft Office Home and Student pre-installed so you can edit and work with Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents on-the-go, opening up a whole new world of productivity.

8 Hours on the Go. With an 8-hour battery life, you can work and play without worry. You’ll be able to complete that presentation for work and still have enough juice for a movie on the way home.  The Acer Iconia W3 will easily get you through your day, being mobile has never been more reliable.

Total Flexibility. The Acer Iconia W3 tablet packs all the flexible input-output options of a desktop PC in a portable package. Bring your files: there’s a microSD card slot built in. Show presentations anywhere via HDMI Micro, and share info using micro USB.

Vincent Pao, General Manager of Concepts Computer, speaking to the media, said, “Concepts Computer is proud to introduce to the Bruneian market, the Acer Iconia W3 tablet, the world’s 1st 8.1 inch tablet with Windows 8 operating system and Microsoft Office Home and Student installed.” He continued, “We are also glad that we have representatives from Microsoft (Brunei) and Acer (Malaysia) here with us to commemorate this joyful occasion.”

Million seats up for grabs!!


There are still many seats up for grabs. Click image to enter.

One of the most anticipated moments for AirAsia passengers – the one million free seats.. Well, for Bruneians, there are selected routes that you can enjoy with super low fares but from Brunei to KL, the fare is zilch… meaning you don’t have to spend on the fare. Of course, you will have to pay for baggage and airport taxes as such. Just that the seats you pay are free.

I recently bought two AirAsia tickets to Kuala Lumpur for my 2014 trip in April and June. Now that’s some planning that I just did but I did regret on booking too fast because I wanted to fly back on a specific date.. Ahh, sometimes you will get carried away and book a flight before thinking *lol*

Now for instance, if you want to travel to Bali somewhere in January 2014 onwards, the fare will be as low as BND 350 including tax and baggage which is still a great deal (BWN-KL_BALI). I have to say that Bali is one of the most interesting places to be at. I know for sure I will be back there again sometime in November 2014.

For those interested in Legoland, you can start planning your trip for next year. Who knows next year that the much awaited Legoland hotel will be open by then. And when I did my research just then, the AirAsia fare to Johor Bahru is pretty darn cheap. You’re talking about a flight for roughly BND 90 to BND 120/130 if you include the baggage allowance for a return flight via KL. So what are you waiting for guys? 😀

I did my research around 6:45pm just then on flights to Johor Bahru via KL

That’s a pretty good deal indeed!!

How the LEGOLAND Malaysia Hotel looks like

I’m not sure how long the 1 million seats promotion is going for but it is still active after less than 24 hours. But I was struggling last night to access AirAsia’s portal because of the high traffic especially around midnight. Even the power of FTTH is not enough to beat the overcrowded queue of AirAsia enthuasiasts.

I’m quite glad that I managed to get my tickets for next year though but it’s only for the first half of 2014. I’m still eyeing Korea or Japan for 2014 but the tickets are still expensive despite the promotion. I just check that the price range is around BND 600+ inclusive of baggage allowance and that’s only for KL-Seoul sector for the traveling period in April and May 2014. As compared to last night’s, the fare was much cheaper because it was still past midnight. Actually, flying to Osaka via KL is cheaper by BND 250ish.. So that could an option 😀

I was put in the waiting room right past midnight while surfing on AirAsia.com

When you are in the queue, this what happens 😀

Bought my ticket for next year

Bought another ticket for next year too

My recent Bali trip was through AirAsia. The connection flight was just nice for me.

I love the Nasi Beryani. Now I’m spoilt for choices.

The Nasi Lemak meal is still one of the best

I’m not sure why but I was given this on the flight.. Awesome!!!


The Popcorn Panel

The icon for our movie podcast, The Popcorn Panel. Click image to enter our podcast sound bytes

Hey peeps!! This is the second week that we have delivered our podcast and we hope to do this on a weekly basis. We are still trying out names for our movie podcast and we have been brainstorming it for the past few days. I kinda like one name but it doesn’t seem appropriate though – PopcornSutra but a few of my friends like it. In the end, it was a toss between The Popcorn Corner and The Popcorn Panel.

Like I said, the name is still not finalised just yet but for now, it will be The Popcorn Panel. The movie features myself as the host/moderator with co-hosts Del Goh and Leo Kassim. Last week we had a good following of listeners for our inaugural podcast, talking about Top 3 Summer Movies and disappointments. This week, we are focusing on one movie review which is Grown Ups 2 which I have reviewed early August since I caught it in the States.

But do watch out for our interesting segment this weekend where we will have our first lady guest under the stage name “Puffy Lawrence”. Our topics will discussing on the dos and donts while watching movies. If you guys want to share your views and inputs, feel free to email me at ranoadidas(at)gmail(dot)com and we will be more than glad to include some pointers.

Our next film review on the podcast will be 2 Guns and Prisoners. So have a great week, peeps!! And do support our movie podcast 😀

Grown Ups 2

Grown Ups 2. I missed the previous Adam Sandler’s movies. What has happen to him? Where is his old mojo? Grown Ups the movie was hilarious. The sequel was totally a disappointment. I dozed at some parts but maybe because I was still jet lag. Anyway, I won’t bother so much with Grown Ups 2 and I have lost faith in Adam Sandler. If he thinks that every movie that he is in will rake in $$$, his days are numbered. I hope they won’t make a third one. Oh, please… Verdict: 5/10 Rottentomatoes 7%
