Have Yourself An App-Merry App-mas!

This morning as I read this advert email in my inbox, I immediately recalled what my husband said a couple of months ago after he got himself a smart phone - “Everything has an APP, one day even to take a ‘dump' you would require an APP!”




No I’m not advertising on behalf of App Store or National Geographic for that matter, but as much as these Apps have their fair share of absolutely fantastic ones to totally disastrous ones, I am no less a fan of Apps especially if the are “FREE!” (Hey! I’m Malaysian, what do you expect?)

Now this world has seen his death,
Yet choose to forget the very essence of His birth.

With Santa every corner and a tree not grown in dirt.
