A New Haircut To Face Life's Challenges

Back to basics, I re-installed this Blogpress for iPhone app again to try out blogging on the fly. The last I tried this application was way back in 2011 if I'm not mistaken. Anyway this would be a short post to share on my new haircut which only cost like RM9.90 in Taman Desa Setapak.

To infinity and beyond!
