Eating out

This is actually long overdue. I'm a foodie, there's absolutely no doubt about that, and here's where I share my gastronomical adventures with you. However (here's where things get interesting), my focus is not on expensive food: I'm looking for a good meal for around $5.

If you're from Vancouver you know that's crazy. A 'meal' is generally described as something wholesome. But the price tag inevitably puts the 'meal' in the fast food category. Not always true! There are lots of local shops that serve great food. And some of the big chains come up with their own surprises from time to time.

I'm not promising that the food will always be around $5, or even $10. Quality comes first! But of course, the lower the price tag the merrier: after all, the 'food' that gets served in restaurants costs a fragment of the dish itself.

Here's proof that I do enjoy food. (Look at him gleaming in the picture, the cheeky bastard. You don't know you're ugly, do you, ha?)...

I don't remember the shop or the exact name of the dish, so this isn't really a review! It was at a Hong Kong airport and was probably beef noodle soup. Posts will be, hm, once every two weeks? Four weeks? Let's see.


  1. You do seem to be enjoying it. That soup looks quite tasty, the green is so vivid you can tell it wasn't overcooked. I look forward to your reviews even if I won't be able to try the restaurants!

How to get rid of the Blogger navbar

There's hardly a Blogger user to be found who hasn't been irked by the navbar. True, it’s not entirely useless – it lets you quickly log on to Blogger and provides a quick customization link. But by just being there the navbar brings a generic look to your blog, which is enough to make readers not take it seriously. On top of that, the navbar allows any Blogger user to flag your blog! (Which, assuming you’re one of the good guys, puts you at the mercy of the goodwill of your diverse readership.)Therefore it’s imperative that you hide your Blogger navbar, or at least know how to. In case you’re wondering, the Blogger Terms of Service doesn’t say anything about the navbar, so you’re good to go.Hiding the Blogger navbar1. Sign in to your Blogger account. This will take you to your Dashboard. Click on the Layout link of your blog.2. Click on the Edit HTML link on the Layout page. Don’t worry, you don’t have to know anything about HTML!

Miscellaneous security software (part 1)

This is part 9 in my Optimizing Broadband|Windows|Firefox series and part 1 of my reviews of miscellaneous security software. Covers anti-spyware, anti-adware, registry cleaners, junk file cleaners, and install monitors.The following aren't really reviews, but should provide you with everything you need to know.

Anti-spyware and anti-adware reviews
Most antivirus applications today come with built-in anti-spywares, so unless you're suspicious something is wrong with your PC you don't need to worry. However, it would be a good idea to install a third-party anti-spyware and anti-adware once in a while to make sure everything's under control. The chief anti-spyware and anti-adware brands are Windows Defender (from Microsoft), Ad-Aware 2007 Free (Lavasoft), AVG Anti-Spyware Free Edition (Grisoft) and Spybot S&D (Safer Networking). Note that I haven't mentioned any paid software, such as the popular Spy Sweeper (Webroot Software). It hardly makes any sense to spend m…
