Dalgona Coffee, Anyone?

Dalgona coffee videos have been making rounds for quite some time now. Everyone coming up with their own version of this two layered coffee. One "Real Man" laughed at all  these sissies making coffee and came up with a rudimentary layering of whisky on water. Well here's something even better for the "Lazy MAN" (or for that matter Lazy Lady - I don't believe in gender bias). Just carefully pour yourself a shot glass full of Sheridan. Image Courtesy: Google Image Search It should look something like this: Image Courtesy: Google Image Search You may also call it the Inverted Dalgona. Tastes just as good if not better. Just for your info: Sheridan is a just another Irish Coffee "taste-a-like". But it is uniquely packaged as a separate dark coffee-Irish whisky mixture and a white cream based liqueur in a single bottle with two compartments with two separate openings.

Samsung Galaxy S20 5G

Galaxy S20 5G is the more affordable higher end phone launched by Samsung. It's almost identical to its siblings with a higher price tag - the Galaxy S20 Plus and the S20 Ultra.

Key specs

  • Display Size: 6.2 inch (563 ppi pixel density)
  • Weight: 163 gm
  • OS version: Android 10
  • Camera: 12 MP Wide-Angle, 64 MP Telephoto, 12 MP Ultra-wide
  • Front Camera: 10 MP
  • Video Capture: 8K
  • Storage: 128 GB
  • RAM: 12 GB
  • SD Card: Up to 1 TB 
  • Battery: 4000 mAh
  • Fingerprint Sensor: In-Screen


This phone has an Exynos-990 processor for the Global Market whereas it sports a Snapdragon-865 processor for the US markets and as per some grapevine reports, Chinese and Hong Kong markets also have Snapdragon version available.

On paper, the Snapdragon-865 chipset is superior to its Exynos cousin in terms of Graphics and Camera capabilities. But the experts at Android Authority seems to think otherwise. As per their tests, Exynos variant managed to slightly outperform the Snapdragon one. But for the masses, the difference may be just psychological.

On the storage front, there is 128 GB available on board with up to 1 TB expandable via SD card. But it is a shared SIM/SD card slot.

Another downside is that, the 3.5 mm sound jack is conspicuous by its absence.

Fast charging is available but the charger provided by it is not the 25 W charger but the charger provided in the box also charges pretty fast.

Overall, its a decent pick with solid graphics/camera/battery performance but at a slight premium over other brands. For a Samsung fan, its awesome - unless one prefers the more premium siblings or wants to wait for the Galaxy Note 10.

Facebook + Reliance Jio = ?

Facebook will be investing $5.7 bn (approx INR 43K crore) in Reliance Jio in a bid to scale up it's presence in India. Reliance on the other hand will be able to reduce its net debt.

May be so much that they could give the Paytms and Google Pays of the world a run for their money. Jio Mart on WhatsApp: Reliance has also announced its online ecommerce platform - JioMart. WhatsApp can be utilised well as a means of receiving orders as well as giving updates. With payment possibilities on WhatsApp itself, the entire lifecyle of buying can be covered in one app. With Reliance in the background sourcing goods in manners similar to what it used for Reliance Digita

Packing for a trip

Have come across numerous videos and articles on how to pack for a trip to save space. I even applied those tips and was quite happy with the results. I used to spend couple of hours just to roll up those tshirts, undergarments, socks and what nots and used to end up saving almost 30% space because of that. My advice to all of you out there on applying these ideas for packing DON'T!!! Why, you ask... Well, on the return journey, I am always in a hurry with absolutely no time to pack my bags, let alone apply packing tips. So always end up having an over stuffed bag with me, or at times when I do some shopping, I have to carry an additional bag on the return journey. You should be prepared to spend some time on the last days of your trip for packing your stuff as densely as you did back home before you started your trip. If that's not your thing and you like to spend the last day of your trip cramming in as much holiday stuff as possible then don't p
