Arabian Food at Bandar Putra Permai

Arabian/Middle-eastern food has come closer to home for me with the newly opened Arabian Food restaurant near Bandar Putra Permai right opposite of Pasar Borong Selangor.

My colleagues and I decided to gave it a try yesterday during lunch. The menu served is standard middle eastern cuisine like hanith lamb, chicken kabsah, aukdah and hummus. A plate of the main course starts from RM10.80 (chicken aukdah) onwards.

Royal Arabian set. Roasted chicken with bread and rice. They serve a really generous portion of chicken and rice. I mean they could easily feed you and your kid in one serving. The chicken is simply humongous!

Roasted chicken set. Every meal menu comes with free Arabian fragrance tea. Apart from individual meals they also serve family set menus starting from RM35.00 for 3 people. Very reasonable compared to Saba or others.

This was what I had for lunch yesterday, chicken kabsah. I've been yearning of having some Arabian food for days now and my dream came true yesterday thanks to the generous Mr. Mazlan (God bless!).

The regular Barbican drink is on the menu but nowhere to be found in the restaurant. We had this Rich drink instead which tasted almost as good.

Why you should try Arabian Food? One because it's closer to home (if you live in Bandar Putra Permai/Taman Universiti/Equine Park/Taman Puncak Jalil and second this restaurant is run by locals not some already rich foreign Arab owners.

The place is clean and service here is fast and excellent. We got all our meals within 10 minutes and the price is reasonable too. No government or service tax some more. For some delicious Arabian food right near home, I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Arabian Food restaurant is located at no 31 Jalan BPP 8/1, Pusat Bandar Putra Permai next to Ana Edar and Domino's Pizza. For directions, click here.

Have total control of your jailbroken iPhone with Activator

If you have used an iPhone long enough, you may experience the dreaded unresponsive home button problem. There comes a time when you pressed the home button so many times that one day it gradually became non-responsive to your touch. You can have it fixed at any mobile phone shop for about 80 ringgit or so or you can use free jailbreak app launcher from Cydia called Activator to control your iPhone using everything from the volume, mute or power button and also multi-touch gestures.

Jailbreakers should be familiar with Activator because it is automatically installed and it's there when you look up in Settings. If it's not, just search for Activator in Cydia and install the package already.

Once installed, you can set Activator to use the volume button for example to do pretty much everything from unlocking the home screen, opening messages, restart the phone or launch any of your apps. The possibility is endless.

For example you can set double tap on the home screen to launch the camera app very quickly without unlocking the phone which I find really-really useful.

There are a lot more ways to customize Activator like double clicking or holding any of the buttons or using a myriad of different gestures on the home screen. You can even set the Activator to do something just by shaking the iPhone or holding the volume button for a few seconds.

Activator is an extremely powerful app launcher and control mechanism for your iPhone and especially useful when any of your iPhone's buttons turns faulty. This free package should be installed automatically with Cydia when you jailbreak your iPhone. Else you'll just have to curse your luck and go to the nearest mobile phone shop and get your iPhone fixed. Head on to to learn how to jailbreak your iDevices.

Get untethered jailbreak for your iOS device with Greenpois0n

From one of the world top iOS jailbreak community, Chronic Dev team has released Greenpois0n jailbreak app which provides the long-awaited untethered jailbreak ability for your 4.21 iOS devices.

Previously, jailbreakers using Pwnage Tool or Redsnow will only have a tethered jailbreak with their devices meaning they have to rerun the jailbreak all over again whenever their iPhone/iPod/iPad turns off or restarts. Not anymore with Greenpois0n which comes in two flavors each for Windows and Mac. I tried the jailbreak myself for my iPad and it runs smoothly using my Windows 7 PC but not with my other Windows XP box. The Mac version of Greenpois0n requires at least Mac OS X 10.6 so no luck for Leopard and older versions. Since Greenpois0n's own website is almost always down, I took the liberty to provide a mirror below. The jailbreak process is fairly simple. Follow the instruction to get into DFU mode and it should be done in less than 5 minutes. After that you can proceed to unlock your phone by installing Ultrasnow in Cydia (does people even buy unlocked iPhones anymore?).
