Double tap in a bathroom sink
For any foreigner in Ireland the first encounter of double tap in a bathroom sink is somewhat confusing. It’s a bit like when in Sri Lanka you have a shower head instead of toilet paper (guess for yourself of what you’re supposed to do in that situation).
To burn myself or to freeze my hands, that is the question.Anyone I asked could not answer me what was the reason for having those so I found this video explanation
Screening of ‘In the mood for love’ in Chester Beatty Library
Hong Kong film directed by Wong Kar-Wai was screened as part of Chinese New Year Festival. Obviously, the film had subtitles and they were nowhere to be seen for approx 50% of the audience. Subtitles were placed at the bottom of the screen, the seats were connected in rows so it was impossible to move your chair even a little. There were those small screens at the sides of the room but if you sat right next to one, like myself, you would have to move your head ninety degrees to the left and up to see it. Imagine keeping it like that for two hours of the movie duration… I left.
I think a bit of theater seating design or feedback collection from past screenings would be great. Surely it wasn’t first subtitled film screened in CBL (or was it?)

So this is a secret folks or was until now… I cannot cut onions or at least not without this little thing on a pic below.
My dad gave me one of these when I was about eighteen and since I didn’t really need to learn not to use it, I’ve been using it ever since. Precise, easy to clean after use and your hands don’t smell of onions for hours.
Wacom Bamboo tablet
I have no idea how I edited photos before I got it! I have it for about seven years now so this model is one of the simplest ones that are out there. It has a pen and a tablet which you plug in through USB. That’s all. It allows for a very precise editing and speeds up your workflow.
