Great user experience design is rooted in great user research- Abhay Rautela
I had a really bad sinus headache and went about looking for a Neti pot the next day. I read online that it could be found at a certain Etos in Amsterdam so I went and checked out Etos on Frederik Hendriklaan during lunch break. They did not have a neti pot. I was directed to Kruidvat but they didn’t have it either.
As luck would have it, two women who overheard my conversation with the woman at the store let me know that I could find it at a drug store 200 meters away. She showed me where it was and as she said, I found it there!
So you should be able to find one at any drug store. If not, here is the exact drug store I went to on a map. Hope this helps you and may your sinus be cured and never return.
I got this recipe with the Jamie Oliver antipasti board I bought. So here it is:
The aubergine takes on a wonderfully smoky flavour, even when griddled.
- 1 aubergine, pricked a few times with a sharp knife
- 2 tbsp yoghurt
- 1 1/2 tbsp tahini
- 1/2-1 garlic clove, crushed
- A squeeze of lemon
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika, plus extra to serve
- On a hot barbecue or griddle, cook the aubergine for 15-20 minutes, turning, until charred and cooked through.
- When cool enough to handle, cut in half lengthways and scoop the flesh into a bowl
- Stir through the remaining ingredients, check the seasoning and serve, sprinkled with a little extra paprika.
Per serving: 51 kcals, 3.9g fat (0.8 saturated), 2.1g protein, 2.1g carbs, 1.8g sugar

Registered dietician Sygo says about an ounce or 28 grams of nuts per day. That’s about as much as what fits in the palm of your hand. And they can be a mixture of nuts or a handful of one kind, like almonds.
Mookata, the Thai style steamboat has been gaining popularity over the years here in Singapore. I wanted to buy a Mookata pot for B as a present and have been looking for over for a month now. I have finally found out where to get it, not through Google (because I didn’t get any real leads) but E.
So where can you buy Mookata pots in Singapore from then? You can buy them at Golden Mile complex (kind of Singapore’s little Thailand) for 20 SGD. There you go, enjoy!

I think Zero Moment of Truth (ZMOT) is changing the more often than not fact that products with more features sell more than products with less features. It’s time for companies to take note and refine their product strategies accordingly.
The wish of every interfaces wish to be understood – Abhay Rautela
This is what I think is the difference between design(ers) and art(ists)- Design is often about what is needed by users and not what is wanted by the designer. Art is often about what is wanted by the artist and not what is needed by the audience.
I feel that 3D televisions will never succeed till them time they can be viewed without the mandatory glasses or other constraints that make it different from viewing TV otherwise.

I am pleased about winning the Book ‘Search Patterns’ by Peter Morville and Jefferey Callendar on Explain IA.
often says bad data is worse than no data at all, just as conducting user research activities and usability evaluations with little knowledge is usually more dangerous than conducting none at all.
I define Information Architecture (IA) as both the process and the product of organization of information to facilitate efficient access to that information by its intended audience.

I think Google would do a lot better if they said, “Google Wave is the new Internet Messenger” instead of “Google Wave is an online tool for real-time communication and collaboration”, because after all this while people still have no idea how to define it when asked about it.
