Last Ramadan I resolved to soften my heart and I wrote about it in my blog post. This Ramadan I resolve to find balance. I am a big proponent of holistic living. I think that everything has advantages and disadvantages and we are always trying to balance both of these. I did not know what I would set as my theme this year but then I remembered my favorite prayer (or dua). Rabbana atina fid dunya hasanatan wa fil akhirati hasanatan wa qina azaban naar. Our Lord! Give us in this world that which is good and in the Hereafter that which is good, and save us from the punishment of the Fire! Sometimes we are attracted to that which is not good for us. Sometimes we want and ask for things that are not good for us. Sometimes we end up on the wrong path going in the wrong direction. Sometimes we focus on this world and neglect the next life. Finding balance means wanting good in this life and the next life and working towards this. Life is a test and we endeavor our best to pass this test. We
Update Feb 24 2023 - The survey has long been closed and the results/report was published and a copy can be found here . Lets hope that this does not become another report collecting dust and that we act on the recommendations. At the end of this year and the future I will contact the ministry to ask what was actioned and update this blog post. Original blog post - Sharing this important survey. Copied from the Ministry of Digital Transformation's facebook page. On our digital transformation journey, we want to ensure that we identify, prioritise and meet your needs. And who better to tell us your needs than YOU? The Ministry of Digital Transformation, in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme Trinidad and Tobago, is rolling out the Digital Readiness Assessment (DRA), an internationally recognised survey-based tool developed by the UNDP, to provide insights into a country's digital strengths and weaknesses.

Earlier in the day, for the Spotify app, the app store said your device is not compatible with this version. For Spotify Lite and spotify.com , I was greeted with not available in your country. When I tried again in the afternoon I was able to sign up at spotify.com and install the Spotify app from the Google Play store. Before this rollout trinis would have to use a VPN to get access to spotify. The free tier of spotify is limited in features, contains ads and audio quality is less. Premium plan costs US 5.99 per month. I enjoyed using the Spotify app. Clean and simple UI and intuitive UX. I am not bothered by the lesser audio quality in the free tier. I am a light user and I can see how a heavy user would be compelled to go premium. In the future I could compare Spotify to some of the alternatives. Some comments from searching "spotify trinidad" on twitter Spotify is out in Trinidad boys and girls! GO GET THE APP, SIGN UP AND USE IT. Honestly the best app for streaming mus
I also recorded this on my youtube channel - https://youtu.be/e4kBD6R5DAE Also check out my other blog posts - Photos taken with Samsung A14 and Photos of new phone Good night Trinidad and the rest of the internet. This is my review of the Samsung A14. I won a $1000 gift voucher from a dad joke contest and I used it to buy this phone. It cost $1099 at Courts and it was the last one from the display at the Chaguanas branch. The internet says that this is Samsung's best selling phone. I got an A14 on the 14th (valentines day) and thats a neat coincidence. The first thing I did was added the phone to my wifi network. Then I did a factory data reset. I then added my accounts and installed the apps I wanted. I am still going through the settings. I now have two phones. My other phone is a 5 year old M30. I wish I could sync my alarms between both phones. Does anyone know how this could be done? I like that it supports 15W fast charging. I like that it is compatible with the Colour B
I had this camera stored away in a box and decided to share some photos of it. It is an antique. This vintage machine was bought when I was in university. I dont think I have the charging cable and I dont know if it still works. I would have bought this some time in the second half of 2001. *I realised after that it can also work with AA batteries. I tried some used batteries I had and the LCD screen actually comes on but I am getting E:92:00. I think I need to try fresh batteries. *The photos of the camera below may take a few seconds to load as they are displayed at original resolution to show detail.
