Yesh, Yuki dropped by a week ago to pass me the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite! Gosh, what a mouthful, let’s just call it ATIV 9 in this post to make things easier, yeah?
Thank you Samsung Malaysia and Manoah Consulting!
This is my first time experiencing Windows 8 too, so I’m a lil’ jakun about this. Everything looks so cool.
Like this, WHOA, WHOA, WHOA. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M LOOKING AT AND HOW I GOT HERE BUT OKAY.
Took me quite a while to understand how it works.. I love the concept and all, but sigh, all the complications.. As much as I love this tiny laptop, I would prefer it with Windows 7.
The first thing I HAD to do what to try out the side sync function. It’s one of the coolest functions because people like me, once I’m on my laptop, I would never touch my phone. Or rather… I can’t hear my phone, I don’t check my phone. Now that it’s like a ‘program’ on my windows, I’ll tend to remember to check my phone for messages more often.. Heh.
It’s not that complicated to do that, don’t worry. You need to install 2 apps on your phone first though!
1. Look for the Samsung Apps
2. Search up SideSync and Phone Screen Sharing and install the two apps.
Next, look for the SideSync (All the way to the right side under Samsung Apps which made life easier for us all.)
You can connect your phone and ATIV Book 9 via USB or WIFI. I’d prefer using the USB, at least it charges my phone too.
So, connect your phone via USB and start up the side sinc for both the phone and laptop.
When you hit this menu, select phone screen sharing and open the same app on your phone and hit start!
JENG JENG JENG…. I was hyperventilating when I saw this. Oh my, oh my, oh my!!!
Ain’t that difficult to predict the very first app I’d want to try. PLANTS VS ZOMBIES 2. I JUST HAD TO!
It has that little delay, but I don’t think it really affects anything. Anyway, it’s way way more fun playing PVZ 2 on your phone but it’s kinda cool that it’s possible to play it via your laptop. :3
Oh, if you find it too small for your liking, especially when reading text messages, ENLARGE IT. Whoa, supersized phone. Awesome.
I’ve not reached the best part yet! You can type on your keyboard to reply texts and etc. Arghhhhh ! Texting can never be faster.
Next, I would want to test a few games on this laptop. For such a lightweight mini laptop, I wonder what games can it handle..
Till the next entry!
What, what? Tablets? No, not like your Samsung Galaxy Tab or Ipad. These are creative tablets for multimedia designs and etc.
Well, I don’t know much about tablets but I came across their launch yesterday morning at Publika and thought some of you might be interested! kiDChan is one of their brand evangelist and she was doing a live drawing demo there. This is the end product. I quite like her stuff.

The two tablets I’m sharing in this blog entry is the Intuos and Cintiq.
There are 2 types of Intuos – Intuos Pro and Intuos Pen & Touch. I saw this video review on the Intuos Pen & Touch, he talked about the comparison of the old Wacom Bamboo products and this new lineup.
I might actually consider getting one for Photoshop editing and occasional graphic designing.
I like this one. Wacom Cintiq Compaion is quite a cool tablet, it’s like an electronic sketchpad to a creative tablet dummy like me.
There’s plenty of drawing demonstrations on the Cintiq Companion.
One of the key features of the Cintiq Companion is the fact that it’s light weight enough for u to carry it to wherever you go and work anywhere you want. Neat huh?
Well, I’m no tablet expert, I don’t really want to just paste the specs here and be done with the post but what I can give you is the price and links to reviews and comparisons. (;

After my meeting with my college counselor, mum, sis and I headed to Petaling Street. I drove from college since mum just put medicine in her eye.. I hate driving in KL. There was this maroon Proton.. Moronic driver.
I’m starting to enjoy taking photographs with the retro app on my Samsung S4. Photos turn out pretty nice.
Famous wanton mee at Petaling Street.
This is only a quarter of 1 out of 3 aisle. They even sectioned the wigs according to colours. Pretty cool huh? We found this HUGE costume shop somewhere in Petaling Street. They had soooooo many things there, it’s unbelievable.
That’s a real electricity hazard there.
So nostalgic. I used to have a fish lantern to play with during one of the Mooncake festivals.
Super cute magnets. I like the fish magnet.
Tea Set. I picked it out It was only RM39.90.
I wouldn’t have guessed these were nail polish if it wasn’t for the tag.
After Petaling Street and Central Market, we headed to Pavilion.
While visiting Daiso, we saw a lot of new weird items.. This porcupine glove mop thing is quite adorable.
Anyone wants to be a doggy? LOL.
Corn Cutter was one of the weird inventions they had here. Others were tomato slicer, potato cutter, garlic skin remover………… Endless weird inventions.
Betty Boop Phone cover.. I don’t think I can fit that (Let alone my phone) in my jeans shorts pockets.
Ohh ! Last night when we were at SS2 night market, we finally picked up the mini rice cooker. 1 each for me and my sister. She lives in NZ, and I’m about to go to NZ to study.. This would be the easiest and most convenient object ever.
Mine’s the cat one, while my sister’s is the one with the pink flowers.
Till the next entry! (:
