Google Internet Speed Test

Looks like we can now uninstall our Speedtest.net app

Just type “speed test” on your Google Search Bar, scroll the results a little bit and tap “Run Speed Test.”

Test was completed on my Zenfone 3

Update: I was at Johor Bahru over the weekend and Speed Test was not available…

Free Internet: McDonald’s, PSA

Located at: #01-25 PSA Building

I honestly thought this was part of ARC

You can see McDonald’s from ARC’s directory… But the address above came from McDonald’s website.

So you connect to their WiFi.

Then on your browser, Ronald (McDonald) will need additional information which includes your name, email address, birth year and month, sex and your mobile phone number (you will receive a one time password through SMS)

Meike MK320 Flash for Micro Four Thirds

Yes, my camera needs a flash…

But since I’m now using an Olympus OM-D E-M10 (my daughter presently use a Olympus E-PL2), I needed something small…

After doing my research, I found the MK320 and bought one from Lazada at SGD 86.91.

Inside the box.

It came with a soft case, a stand, diffuser and a manual.

I have to admit that the box is well built… Plus points for me since it’s my first time to encounter the brand.

Features.

It has an LCD Display (with back light) and the usual buttons

And a charging port. You can plug a MicroUSB to charge your NiMH (as per manual) batteries…

This feature is a big plus for me since I will no longer need to carry a charger for my AA batteries when travelling.

Functions.

TTL, Slave mode and Manual.

It also has a “flash light” mode which is useful for your videos.

The Looks.

Size matters and I think this one is just fine.

I was surprised on how the MK320 took care of my lighting needs…

Battery life was a bit disappointing, but maybe I can blame my batteries for that.

Power was sufficient and it was ready to fire again whenever I needed it.

Highly recommended for those looking for an inexpensive flash.
