iPhone 6s Plus

I had been longing to own the latest iPhone 6S Plus since it was introduced last September 2015.  I need to change and upgrade my iPhone 5 since I'm using it for more than 2 years.  Finally, I was able to buy last week this beautiful and well crafted phone in the market today. The iPhone 6S Plus make a significant improvements in almost all areas, a 12 megapixel back camera and 5 megapixel front facing camera.  Its body is made of 7000 Series Aluminum that makes the phone stronger and not easy to bend unlike the previous iPhone 6 Plus.  It is a powerful computer in hand with its new dual-core A9 processor running at 1.7 GHz and 2GB of RAM. In addition, Apple had introduced the 3D Touch Quick Actions for its iPhone 6S models which you can enter them by placing your finger in any icon on the screen and pressing down until you receive a little vibration and quick action windows pops up.  The phone has also 4K video recording capabilities.  This 5.5 inch smartphone has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels with a pixel density of 401 ppi.  Now, with all these specifications, I may say that iPhone 6S Plus for sure is above the rest of the smartphone gadget. For the meantime let me enjoy using and playing my iPhone 6S Plus.

Cold and Breezy Night

It's 12 degrees celsius tonight at Al-Khobar.  The cold and breezy evening is a welcome respite from my hectic work and decided to dine-in at Golden Juice near our flat.  I ordered my favorite broasted chicken, still hot and spicy. This kind of weather in Saudi Arabia is mostly welcomed by locals and expatriates like me. For almost three months we will have this kind of cold season.

Unforgettable - Natalie Cole Dies at Aged 65

One of my favorite singers Natalie Cole died at age 65 last Thursday (December 31, 2015) night at a   Los Angeles hospital.  Natalie Cole rose to fame as an R&B as well as jazz singer with her hit songs Inseparable, Miss You Like Crazy, Someone That I Used to Love, I Live For Your Love, and my favorite among her hits Starting Over Again. She is the daughter of the great Nat King Cole whose song Unforgettable was a huge hit in the United States and all over the world.   Her greatest success came from her 1991 album, Unforgettable ... With Love, which paid tribute to her father Nat King Cole. The hit song Unforgettable saw her voice remixed with her father's voice. She won for that album at the Grammy awards 1992 for Album of the Year, Record of the Year (Unforgettable), Best Traditional Pop Performance (Unforgettable).  

I was deeply saddened by the demise of Miss Natalie Cole.  Actually, only last month I was able to buy her CD "Natalie Cole, Still Unforgettable" at Rotana Music Store at Al-Rashid Mall, Al-Khobar.  Even if she is gone already, I will continue to play her songs over and over again which are so close to my heart.  She will be greatly missed by her family and fans around the world. Goodbye Miss Natalie Cole, you are now with our creator ....
