Windows 10 using experience

Today I managed to upgrade my Windows 8.1 Pro to Windows 10 Pro.

It took approximate 1 hour plus plus to upgrade it. It’s depend how many files and programs installed on your current Windows.

The only driver not manage to upgrade completed is my NVIDIA GeForece GTS450. It shows Windows Basic bla bla bla driver. I installed the driver twice only managed to get back my dual screen and high resolution. The second time installation I only selected the basic driver install.

Black colour taskbar, once you open a program you will get a yellow underline on the program name, I think this is how they replace the box design.

Windows Edge is replaced for Windows Internet Explorer. Personally I do not have much interest on this product.

Windows 10 message box I think is really a unfinished product…erm… I am not a designer but this definitely did not separate the title and body well and the padding gap is really too near to the border.

This is how Windows 10 message box look like..

After a few hours of using, I did not find out any major issue except my Outlook 2016 Trial version, it keep crashing. Hopefully the final version I able to use it without any issue.

Conclusion – Do not use on your production PC

My final advice is do not upgrade in your production machine. You may wait for another 3-4 hours to wait Microsoft fix those bugs. I read some of the forum blue screen to happen to them when they are upgrading to Windows 10.

This restaurant is crowded. So if you plan to have a big group to visit this restaurant I would advice you come early. It is hard to allow a big group sit together.

Boss is busy preparing the food. It's look and taste yummy!

Melaka Trip During Raya – 2 Days 1 Night (Day 1)

This year hari raya I was having Life Group (LG) retreat with my group member to Melaka.

We depart about 10am from Petaling Jaya to Melaka took about 2 hours. At the middle of the journey there was a minor accident that cause us delay about 20minutes. I was asking WHY JAM? Waze did not show any accident report. But once it nearly reach the accident point, it just said “Accident Reported”, I was like …zzz

Once we reached in Melaka we cannot wait to taste the local food. Our first destination was Pork Satay!

Melaka Pork & Chicken Satay – Xiang Ji Satay House (Jonker Satay)

Xiang Ji Satay House
30 sticks of Satay @ Xiang Ji Satay House

 

Personally I prefer chicken satay compare to pork satay. Chicken satay meat is more soft compare pork satay. One stick is cost RM0.80, we had ordered about 30 stick to try out.

After we had the WanTanMee, it’s the time for Jonker Street.  FIRST THING FIRST, DO NOT SIMPLY PARK!

Summons in Jonker Street. Yes! It's 1st day of Raya, they still faithfully do their duty. Don't simply park or you will receive your "gift"

We did one way walk to the Jonker street. Great dancing performance that I did not enjoy very much. LoL… The street is so clouded and jam. So beware your own belonging and bring one portable fan.

At the end or beginning of the street depend you start from which side. There is a hot selling coconut stall.

Get a nice cold drink in such a hot place! Coconut milk shake with ice-cream is a good choice!

After Jonker Street walk, we went to a coffee shop. By the way, I am not a coffee lover. Just for a knowledge and visit. LOL…

Calanthe Art Cafe – Malaysia 13 States’ Coffees

Painting - Calanthe Art Cafe - Malaysia 13 States' Coffees

We enjoyed talking and fellowship in this place. This is a definitely a good place to hangout together. Environment is good and also hard to find seat. If you come with a big gang, it is hard to arrange everyone in one table.

That’s all for the 1st day. Next day we will enjoy more Melaka food. Stay tune!
