Playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 on 5K iMac

Who says you can’t game on an iMac?

Okay, I admit, it’s not a gaming machine. In a similar price range, you can get a much more powerful desktop computer having the ability to play all the latest triple-A titles. But that’s not what I got the iMac for. So I was fine with not having the ability to play all the triple-A titles.

However, it was still great at playing some of the titles that I enjoy. Euro Truck Simulator, as seen here, plays smoothly without any drama. I’m glad that it does. It’s one of the most relaxing video games that I ever played and I can’t get enough of it.

Fun fact: When I shot this photo, as you can see, it was raining in the game world. It had been raining in the real world as well! Adds to the experience, you know!

Crowne Plaza, Belgrade

While attending WordCamp Europe 2018 in Belgrade, Serbia, I had the opportunity to stay at Belgrade’s Crowne Plaza hotel. It was a nice hotel with a fairly well-decorated room. Took this shot while I was looking at it from my bed.

Isn’t it wonderful that we can travel the world with ‘our world’ on that piece of technology?

Tracking a flight

Aviation technology has always fascinated me. From booking a flight that can happen from a million different places to how a flight is tracked all over the world, it has never failed to amaze me. Recently, I discovered this cool site where you can track the live status of any flight that’s currently airborne. As my brother headed for Germany, his first flight from Bangladesh did not have a tracker it in, but his second flight did have a tracker. As a result, as you can see above, I was able to view the live position of his flight just like he was able to view it on his personal monitor for the in-flight entertainment system.

When the flight had a tracker, it became a lot easier just to watch where the aircraft currently is.

MacBook Pro speakers

One of the coolest things about the new MacBook Pro is the quality of the speakers. The first few times I played music after getting it, I literally had to look at it and be like wow that’s something! Especially at the 15-inch model, the bass is pretty great for a laptop.

Shezan Juice

This mango flavored juice was one of my favorites when I was a child. I haven’t seen it for a long time until a few months ago when this seemed to have come back. It’s not the best tasting mango juice that you can find on the market, but it does bring back some memories.

Arguably, no mangoes are harmed in the making of these juices. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

“Today” at Mermaid Beach Resort

Continuing yesterday’s photo post, here’s another cool thing that you’ll encounter after entering the Mermaid Beach Resort premises. It’s a nice “Today” view made of wooden panels that gives you important information about the day, including the high tide and low tide time for your safety at the beach.

Amex Lounge at Shahjalal International Airport

One of the perks — not that there are many — of getting a City Bank American Express Credit Card (Gold) is that when you’re leaving the country, you can enjoy a somewhat luxurious lounge at the Shahjalal International Airport.

The lounge is pretty calm and beautiful. It has a good selection of free food that you can eat before you start your journey. There’s free WiFi with adequate speed to do some heavy browsing.

The lounge is accessible after you cross the immigration point, so you will likely not be spending a lot of time in there as you can only cross immigration after you’ve checked in, which is no more than a couple of hours before the departure time.

Why did I say that there aren’t many perks of getting an Amex card? Well, turns out, in Bangladesh, most merchants accept either Visa or MasterCard. American Express is not accepted as widely as Visa and MasterCard. Not that you can live without carrying cash in Bangladesh, but those places that do accept card transaction, they usually don’t support Amex cards, which is a bummer.
