How to Safe and Secure Your Phone and Gadget

F452PEGJRQOLBL7.LARGE (1)

from a person who has lost almost everything (exaggerated, of course).

So, confession time, as my previous sentence said, I’m very VERY clumsy. If something’s not attached to me, there is a very big chance that I will misplace it, forget is somewhere, left it at the restaurant toilet, and so on. It’s just last month I had someone returned my backup phone I left in a restaurant toilet 6 months ago. Fortunately I had my email listed on the phone, but unfortunately I didn’t do every precaution there was on that phone as I did in my primary phone (which I had left about three times in three different places and got it returned fortunately every time). If I did, maybe it could be returned sooner. However, I did have my email listed there, and the founder managed to email me.

I write this as a check list next time I reinstall/ change my phone, as well to remind everyone not to be me.

There are a lot more things you can do of course (suggestion welcome!), and I think I double some things here and there and maybe not to your likings, but one of these is definitely better than none!

Mostly for Android. I want to write about automaton with Tasker and others as well but haven’t managed to do so. This is it for now!

How to: YD206 Yotaphone 2: Flash Lollipop, Update to Marshmallow, Root, Set up Always-On Screen

Yotaphone 2 (silicone.co.uk)

I had always been interested in this phone since its launch, but the price point was the downside (400+ GBP was too much for a phone for me). Recently I’ve stumbled a post in Mobileread and XDA, saying that it’s been discounted to 100 GBP price point, which’s pretty rational, if I do say myself.

My Backpacking Trip List

I have written about planning the flight here, now, as the maximum carry for the flight is 7 kg and (these are definitely not 7 kg, ahaha. I’m sorry. I think it’s less than 10 kg still). Here is my list of backpacking stuffs. As my traveling tips before. The less stuff you buy, the better (stingy mode activated).

Air Asia ASEAN Pass: What is it, How to do, and My Setting to Maximize my ASEAN Trip in the Span of Two Weeks

clip_image001

So, there’s this ASEAN Pass Promotion going on in Air Asia website. What is it? It’s a Pass, both 10 credits and 20 credits ones, available to be changed into flight based on their credits value, in between ASEAN countries.

There are a few terms to note, such as no repeat flight, only valid for 30 days, and only bare necessities it can get the pass for 160 USD (10 credits) or 290 USD (20 credits), of which, if you convert it into 10 one-credit flights, each. But! There’s a lot of terms (normal for this kind of thing) that you must follow. Oh, and it wasn’t there when I bought it, but there’s a 10% discount of inbound flight (for visiting your starting ASEAN city from your country)

I plan to visit my friends around ASEAN, so I think, why not?

My Android App List

Updated: 10 December 2018

I’ve been wanting to make an article about my go-to Android apps for a year already, I have a draft and everything other than hyperlinks, but after I lost it I don’t have enough motivation to start making it again (I’m still mourning).

Anyway, now I am ready to make one! My list of recommended Android apps for your smartphone. I’m not always connected, I don’t have a mean for a credit card, and my data subscription is limited, that’s for a starting note. Warning: a long list of apps ahead.
