Today. Lets talk about these three Biotics that we ingest.

Probiotics, prebiotics and antibiotics I believe you are no stranger to these terms. At the very least, you would have heard of "probiotics" in some yoghurt drink Tv commercials.. or those "antibiotics" that was prescribed to you by the doctors when you are sick.

But do you know
What are the differences between each of them? and
What exactly do they do in our body?

Last Revised: Saturday, January 26, 2013

Music Psychology has always always been an interesting topic to discuss about. As a music enthusiast  I am always fascinated by how the different sounds can influence one's thoughts. Let's learn more about it and harness The Power of sonar today lol.

Over the years various studies have been made with regard to restaurants dining environment. Namely the design (this include colour, space..), the lighting, the smell, the sound, needless to say the taste of food..

I know.. I know.. alot of people have been poking fun about Google's auto complete sentence suggestions.. but I am not referring to that..

Something else sparks me to write this post..
For the past few months I have been following my blog status closely..

Like every web master, I would like to get my site indexed by Google quickly and proficiently.
But one thing that really annoys me is that even though my pages got indexed for the first few days..
it may be gone for the next few.. I have no intention of playing peekaboo with you Google.. -_-

You are so unpredictable..

So what is? prepared music?.. you are probably wondering.. Hmm Is it the practices a performer have to do before each performance. There is this Chinese saying "台上一分鈡,台下十年功" which means you need ten years of hard work to perform a single minute on stage.

.. or is it the fine tuning of musical instruments before the show, getting their tune to sync.

Cajon Portable Drum kit in a box

Last Revised: Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Cajon in Spanish literally means drawer. This is one little instrument that I would love to have it in my home.. who knows may be someday I might consider building one myself!!.. but my mum would definitely nag at me since she does not like "unnecessary things" to be seen in her house o.o

Some of you might not have seen Cajon before as it is not a mainstream instrument. I only got to realize about this wooden box looking instrument 3 years ago? Yeah.. 3 years ago and in actual fact this is considered quite an old instrument compared to some other uncommon instruments that I have blogged about earlier.

Still remember vividly the first time when I saw somebody beat a box, I was blown away by the sound it produced.. How can a box sounded so much like a drum kit's bass and snare.

As some of you might know I have started this blog for about 3 mths plus already. My traffic is still pretty low. One reason being the primary niche I am targeting is low, that brings out the reason to why I am doing a multi niche lifestyle blog. I also understand that a 6 mths period is required for a new site to be fully indexed and take off. But whatever blogging is suppose to be fun and I write what I like..

Eigenharp is much more than a harp

Last Revised: Thursday, January 17, 2013

Is time for another weird instrument. Check out my list of exotic instruments if you haven't. This time round is a 21st century instrument.

Started its development by Eigenlab a UK company in 2001 and was introduced to the world in 2009.
Eigenharp is by far one of the most expressive electronic instrument I have seen. Its design is very unique, unlike any kind of instruments you've seen before.. is like having various instruments and a computer crammed together as one..

Black Hat or White Hat SEO? May the Force be with you!

Last Revised: Tuesday, January 15, 2013

When it comes to SEO (Search Engine Optimization) there are these two forces of black and white  fighting against each other(in this context they are fighting for rank and visitors), the Dark Side and the Light Side. For those who loves star wars might find this unusually familiar.

Of course in reality there exist not only no pure black or white there are also those in between greys.
Still unsure of which way they should go?. In the end is up to you to decide. How you use the force determines your chosen path..

Choose a Force to follow..

Black Hat The Dark Side 

Darth Vader in BioSuit
Darth Vader Just Got his Suit

Black Hat SEO works just like the Dark Side, you gain power through negative emotions lust, greed, anger, ambition etc..  You do not need as much commitment compared to the whites. Dark power rise faster..

Black Hat does not obey the search engine's guidelines and are often deceiving, providing content that are irrelevant and useless. Their technique includes

Keywords Stuffing-  Spam keywords in the article or meta tag that dont usually have any relationship with the page context.

Cloaking - Creating door way pages that are highly optimised with keywords to rank on the search engine. At which the end user would be directed to another page if they decide to visit it.

Links Buying - buying Inbound/ back links from other sites that helps boost the value for the site.

Scraping and Spinning - this is just a higher level of plagiarism ..taking articles from others and spun it

However! there is one important thing to note.. The dark side have no control over the power, is the power that controls them.

Once you get caught by google (I am only taking about Google since so many people are using it right now and is my best friend lol) you will have to face the consequences.. your beloved site will either  be put into Google's sandbox or removed... till then you will be having a hard time to rank your site...

White Hat The Yoda Side

Well done "Youngling" ! to encourage you to move on.. A video for you, here I have

Yoda - Feel the Force By melodysheep/Symphony of Science

White Hat SEO on the other hand requires a lot of hard work and patience to achieve the results Is like training to become a Jedi o.o.... And You definitely have full control over the force.
Very different from Vader's black helmet white hat also kown as ethical seo follows the search engine's guidelines strictly.. Bounding themselves to the code of Jedi, morality and justice.
White hat methods includes

Quality Content- creating content that are informative to the users. Content is King and is lasting.. readers want to read something that is worth their time.

Appropriate Title and Description - clearly summarises the page. Users know at instance what your page is about when they search for it.

Link Building - build organic backlinks by the means of using social media. Fackbook twitter.. if people likes to read your stuff they will probably link back to you.

Good site navigation and interface - when a visitor land on your page they want to have a good experience clear layout and navigation. No one likes to recommend a page that is cluttered.

Remember the force of white hat power is permanent and stable.. Although it requires alot of hard work and patience but in the end you will always be the successor in this game.

May the Force Be with You...

Are you one of those annoying people in the MRT who blasts music on earphones.  Yes this is an interesting topic that was being raised again and again and we all know the reason why..  What is even more very fascinating is to see people taking pictures of those "music blaster" and posting them on STOMP? should you just tell them off..

Hatsune Miku Live Hologram Concert

This technology was actually introduced by Yamaha Corporation to the world in 2004. I actually did tried out version 1 of this software back in 2007 but it was kinda difficult to manipulate partly because I was using the Japanese version and there were still a lot of development problems. So I gave up using it since no one around me seems to appreciate this glitchy product that time..

Molecular Gastronomy Of Milk Coagulation

Last Revised: Saturday, January 5, 2013

Continue.. from Ginger Milk Curd

Here is a simple explaination of it..

While some of you might be familiar with the cheese making process in which they use rennet a type of protein enzyme(protease) that coagulates the milk. It is actually the same reactions that occur when you add ginger to milk.

Ginger itself contains proteases. These enzymes will exhibit proteolytic activity cleaving the protein structure. This hydrolysis reaction actually disrupt the affinity of Milk protein causing the structure to change. Thus resulting the hydrophobic casein group to clump together. Separating the Milk into Solid and liquids.
