Application Review


Wordpress Application That Would Make You Want to Dump Your Laptop


Switching on my laptop and try to use it for blogging is quite a big challenge for me. My baby , Kenji would definitely not allow it to happen. He wants the computer all for himself but of course he can’t have it. It’s a RM4k machine and I’m not ready (or rather I don’t have that much of money) to replace it with a new one. Hence, I prefer to blog or reply comments straight from a much smaller device like my iphone which is less attractive to my baby (yup he doesn’t really fancy the phone)

I know that WordPress has its own smartphone application but I did try it once and was not really impressed with it. Due to too many bugs, slow in importing my blog posts to the size of my blog, size restrictions in uploading image (often image that I uploaded via the previous WP application will be downsize and I really don’t like it) and many more turned down aspects I just abandoned the application then, but luckily I never deleted it, perhaps still keeping some hopes for it to be useful for me.


Today I visited the application again after upgrading it and guess what? I think I starting to like what I see. Yeah. It is now easier to navigate within the application, there’s a reader section where I can read “freshly pressed” blog and follow many good blogs (I’ve been wanting to follow many blog but it’s rather too time consuming to check all the blog directories available and only to discover that there are too many lousy/boring blog more than the good ones) It’s a tiring and soul killing process but with this application, I promise you it’s a breeze!


The best feature that made me feel like jumping to the roof is the ability to reply comment straight from the application itself. Yay! That’s mean I can reply to comment while am lying down on the bed with my 2 boys trying to get inside into my tummy again. How’s that? Super easy right? There’s no need to secretly use the computer just to reply to a single important comment. Yippie!

This application also allow me to use whatever size I like for my photo. What a big relief! I use a lot of pictures on my blog and would like to have the ability to set the photo’s size. Previously, I need to login into my wordpress dashboard via laptop and upload the image, but now I can just upload it via this application and I can never be more thankful that I already am.

There’s also a reblogging option, but I’ve yet to know how it works as it kept crashing the application everytime I tried to reblog. Will check on that later.

What is blog without traffics? With this WordPress application, I can now check my visitor stats too. Cool huh? And whatelse? Oh yeah you can also view and add new page to your blog by just using this application. Awesome. But that would not be so critical for me as I think I prefer to edit and compose my page using bigger screen like laptop or desktop computer.


So buddies, it’s time for blog evolution and join WordPress today! Haha I sound like a sales person already, but this isn’t a paid post. I wrote this with my heart pounding with joy as I really really really love the WordPress application, no amount of money can pay me for my happiness. This is truly an application made in heaven.


Proton Family Fest 2010

Ichiro was dying to play on this, tapi once come near dia tak berani. Sbb budak2 kt situ melompat dgn ganasnya..hihi

This is me cam whoring, sorry mulut berminyak sbb baru jer lepas makan nasi beriyani. Ichiro tgh tido kt sebelah ehe

Family day Proton adalah tk best kerana saya tk menang any luck draw prize ponnnnnnnn. Tunggu sampai lebam tapi tk dapat. Arghhhh. Tensen haku. Hahaha. Mmg la target nk menang kereta kan. Tapi kalau tk dpt, busuk-busuk nak la jugak menang TV 40 inch ker…haihhh. Neway, tkyah nk citer banyak sbb tk bertuah pon, Ichiro jer lah dapat menang belon free banyak. Huhuhu.

Main stage utk kids activities

Kereta innovation. Tapi mcm I tk nampak kegunaan atap gelembung tu. Mungkin just utk sajer-sajer jer kot.

Dapat belon hijau bentuk love. Boleh lahh…later Ichiro buat asah gigi dia belon nih.

Tapi apa-apa pon, I’m kinda proud to be part of Proton actually. Ok am not the one yg kerja dengan Proton, my hubby is. Tapi, so far ni lah am in the opinion that Proton concern la jugak about staff’s family. Always family first. So, no wonder family day quite out standing. I tk sure la if ada company lain yg lagi hebat family day nyer, tapi to me this is the biggest family day yg I pernah attend. A lotss of activities such as paintball, go cart and many more (semua i tk try pon..huhu) , free foods, ice creams, tid bits and etc etc.

Tengah beratur for the tid bits. Nk habiskan kupon makan yg ada. Itupon terlebih2 jugak, ended up kami kasi ada satu mamat tu, dia kata boleh jugak la kasi dia kupon tu sbb dia nk amik ice cream lagi..hihi

Just like old times. Benda ni la yg buat saya tk sabar nk habis kelas n nk balik masa kecik2 dulu. Hehe. marukuuuu marukuuuu

Letih badut ni nk kene pintal2 belon, budak2 kerumun tk habis-habis…Tk termasuk mak-mak anda bapak-bapak yg kerumun sekali :D

Yang ni dah terpenat, so tertido. I’m blessed with a child yg senang nk tido walau di mana berada, asalkan penat or letih jer tido. Alhamdullilah….

Me posing time nk balik,  baju tk semengah, tergebeh2 kt bahu..hehe abaikan jerlah..

I hope Proton keep it that way lah. Tingkatkan benefit yg sedia ada (ngeh ngeh) dan berilah saya peluang menang kereta!

p/s: pictures were snapped using Instagram apps for iPhone. great apps! love it and the best part it’s free :D


Iphone 4 - Application (apps) for photo editing and camera

Sorry I was too sleepy last night and missed to update my blog. I was actually wanted to publish a simple entry about my favourite apps (applications) for iPhone especially for camera and photo editor. Currently there are not so many apps in my iphone yet as I am still testing out some of the apps and prefer to do it one in a time. I don’t quite like it if my iphone cluttered with useless apps. To those who knows any good apps, feel free to share in the comment section. It’s lot better if the apps is free. Hehe.

Color Splash

I love this apps, since it makes my photo editing work lot much easier. I used to use photoshop to do the color splash effect, but now I can just edit the photo straight away after I snap it by using my fingers! Color splash effect is an excellent way to accentuate certain part in your photo. Here is an example of photo that has been edited using color splash apps. It’s not a perfect choice of photo for example, but good enough to showcase capability of this apps. Color splash apps is not free tho, feel happy to pay USD1.99. Hehe.


I have been dreaming for all my life (bit exaggerate here) to make my picture to look like drawings in retro comics….like in those marvel comics. In photoshop there’s an option to apply the sketch effect, however the result doesn’t look cartoony enough to me and I can’t color it the way I want it to be colored (actually can, but bit troublesome).

So, ToonPaint is pretty superb and easy to use too. It will be much easier if you have slimmer fingers than mine. Mine are too fat for everything. Haha. Here an example of half way done cartoon picture of myself. I have yet to learn how I can save as draft and continue my coloring work later. At the moment, I need to finish up the coloring and save it. Can’t remember whether not this apps is free.


This apps allow you to edit your photos like a fake miniature with soft focus and vignetting effect. It’s not as good as DSLR aperture or bokeh effect tho but you can get an outcome close to photos taken by DSLR, providing you know how to play with the soft focus point and brush/feather size. very well Other than that, you can also adjust the hue saturation of the pictures so that I would looks like it being taken in the 80′s. Cool aight?

One drawback, I can’t seems to be able to upload pictures from library / from my camera roll to this camera apps and edit the existing picture. I need to snap the photo using this camera apps and later edit it there and then, meaning u got to remember to use this camera instead of the standard camera apps and also quickly edit the picture the way you want and save it. And also it won’t save your original photos, it will only keep the edited ones. Pretty bummer huh? Because, I always prefer to keep my original photos as well. So  utk this apps, gambar yg you rasa tk penting and tk perlu simpan original version boleh la guna kot.

Updating my blog via blogo and at the back is inbox of my Usana email.

Similar result can be achieve by using Picasa software also. Here is an example of photo that I edit using Picasa.

Here how’s the original (pretty similar to original, couldn’t find the real original, I might  have accidentally deleted it) photo looks like. Ada tong sampah, tiang letrik, kereta and gambar adalah senget sket. Ehe. And it was a bit dark too.


Currently my favourite! Why? Because it is super easy peasy to use. One rules to get the most out of this camera apps is to take a nice pretty shot. That’s all you need as the apps will do the rest for you. If gambar yg diambil mmg sedia tk berapa lawa, result pon ala-ala jer lah. This apps capable to give you different preview of the pictures for different effects, so u got to choose which effect you like the most and save it.

Here a sample of image with different effects. I always love Helga, Instant, Magazine, Cinema, 1974, Mono…o mannn seems liking it all! Haha. Camerabag is not a free apps. Need to pay USD1.99. But hey, it really worth the money. Good thing you can upload your picture anytime, apply the effects and it will also save the original version. Very cool.

So, I think am done for now. Hope that to those yang tanya-tanya I before this, which apps I use to edit my pictures berpuas hati :), so far cuma ini sahajalah if later I bump into another good apps, will certainly share it here.

I’m yearning for Camera+ app, but it has been banned by Apple and only god knows when Camera+ will ever make it back on the market. But Camera+ used to be a top paid app, it was simply the best app ever created for photography purposes. Too bad I got my iPhone after it being banned. Hehe. My next hunt is watermarking apps and also photo layout template software like Photoscape

Wanna say thanks to James owner of Friedbeef website. He’s the one who introducing me to lots of cool camera and photos apps. I met him once during my homestay trip. He’s one of the participant. Never thought he’s the owner of such a famous website! I should thank my lucky star :D He blogs/writes about technology,  lotttsssss of tips and stuff like that. I like the web very much, since am really into gadget and applications. Unique visitor of Friedbeef websiteI assume must be around 18k a day or more. Salute!


Facebook Page for my blog

Picture source : (original source of this image is unknown, as I saw it appear on so many sites, so credit goes to google)

Hey! I got a Facebook page for my blog already =) Heeee poyo tak? I’ve been neglecting the idea of having a page for my blog because I don’t think it is necessary. Not until last night when I was chatting with Aini (my webblog developer), she brought up the topic.

She asked me whether not I have a page or group page or anything on Facebook so that she could create customize tab for my FB page. I didn’t know that we can actually create a customize tab other than the default tab such as wall, info, photos, notes, and etc. Thanks to Aini who highlighted it to me.

Mr & Mrs Imran | Promote Your Page Too

The customize tab is pretty cool as you can actually paste of put in everything you like in it. It can mirror your blog tab also. Albeit I’ve yet to decide what are the tabs that I wanna include in, but since Aini offer to do it for me for FREE as a token of appreciation since I’ve introduced her to few of my friends who were looking for web designer in the past, so I quickly create a page today. Benda free jangan dilepaskan. Hehe.

So, jadinya am proud to announce that I have a FB page for Mr & Mrs Imran blog already. However, I refuse to call it a fan page as I think that we are all equal. I prefer to have friends rather than fans. Bukan tk suka, cumanya blog I ni belum tahap nk kata femes la, just that I dh lama blogging. Kalau ada otai page I prefer create tu dari fan page kot. Hahaha.

Come join me and the others on Facebook. You can click on the badge above or click HERE to join. Baru 11 org jer member buat masa sekarang ni..ehe. Takper baby step =) Thanks for joining!


Tutorial ~ How to make your tweet as your email or forum signature

Ok here’s the trick..hehe (trick la sangat kan), but it’s pretty neat as you can attach your latest tweet in your email or forum (as signature) and also on your blog or website. This is not a paid ad. I just feel like sharing :) If you guys “like” this simple tutorial, kindly share on FB or retweet (use my new and sleek share & retweet button above this post) so that I know there’s a demand and from time to time I can make more simple tutorial similar to this.

I discovered Tweetbars when I was lurking for “tetsuhighrose” Daily L.I comic thread in lowyat, read my post about the comic here. Huhu. Worry not, this is really a child play as you just need to copy and paste the code into your signature box and your tweet will shown up almost immediately.

Here is how to go about;

1) Visit
2) Insert in your twitter ID as below image and click “get one”

3) After that..taraaa codes are ready to be paste wherever you want. Looking good aight? Refer below image.

This is example of my signature in email :) I don’t fancy attaching signature at the end of my entry as I think it got no use and definitely will require extra times in loading my page which will only hurt my readers who’s struggling to get connected to internet. So, I attached it in email :) and……

as my forum signature too! (featuring @kujie in my tweetbars)

So, sapa-sapa yg suka letak signature berbagai rupa bentuk, try lah tweetbars. But, tweetbars is only for twitter user lah. The best part is, your tweet display in tweetbars will continously changing as you tweet more. Meaning kalau hari ni I email you, and my tweet is for example “abcdef”, then tomorrow if you open the same email again, the tweet will change to “xyz” (providing you ada tweet lagi lah selepas your latest tweet semalam). Hope you guys get it lah, haku ni kadang-kadang cakap berbelit. Hehe. So, eh TGIF eh?

p/s: I got my first order for the chocs! Yay! Will update soon ;)
