So it’s 31st of December, 2013. Shall I do the mandatory ‘Achievements of 2013’? Yeah, why not.. I’d rather call them the highlights of 2013 though.
Deirdre and I did our second shoot together, photographed by Elaine Chooi.
Ate the most expensive slice of melon and orange for dessert at Kampachi.
RM75 for the melon, RM15 for the Keenakan orange.
Went to my first rave with Michelle Hor – We Love Asia 2013. That spells out Yolanda Be Cool, by the way.
Photographed one of my favourite girliest gamer friend, Chloe.
Attended Garena Carnival 2013 with my team, Mystical Angels where we hosted a showmatch against public gamers.

Just a note, I’m no longer in Mystical Angels cause I’m going to study in NZ already.
Oh god, I even had a banner in the forum. Christ..
Learnt to make my own sushi during my stay at the PJ Hilton.
Went to ASOT 600. I skipped the next day’s FMFA though. 2nd rave! D: Well, come to think of it, I don’t find them as euphoric as it has been described by friends.

Went to Bali straight after my Singapore trip.
Did my very first.. Bikini Hair Removal session …..
Did a shoot with Nicholas when he was starting to get more buff. (Album)
I did a shoot with Jolin when she just dyed her hair turquoise. (Album)
She’s like a short haired Hatsune Miku.
Thanks to Samsung Malaysia and Manoah Consulting, I had a great opportunity to review the Samsung Galaxy S4 for a few months! I said goodbye to my Samsung S2 almost instantly..
It’s also the month I finally bleached my hair, again. (Link)
I did a shoot for Phat Culture. A first for everything huh? This was my first fashion shoot.
For our school project, we visited PPKKCTM to do some art pieces with them.
OMG, I discovered the most amazing snack to eat during class too. Friggin’ cheesy fries for RM6. Swear, it’s the best thing I’ve ever discovered in Jaya One.
For Garena League of Legends Anniversary, I cosplayed as Nurse Akali as a favour. I had my best friend to accompany me.. I had quite a lot of haters on me that day. As much as people who supported me, so I was alright. I appreciate my supporters and my friends.
My favourite self shot of the month
Mum took me to Macau on the weekend before my birthday. On the job. LOL, not that I mind.
On my birthday, I had to go to school to finish up a college project. I don’t even….
My second fashion shoot. This time, with Tongue in Chic, featuring Annatasha Saifol.
A photograph I took that I absolutely love. I cannot not put this photo in this blog entry..
My special way of taking pictures with my classmates.
I actually managed to do a 30 Day Self Shoot Challenge.. D:
Did another hunk shoot with Nicholas. This time, with his cousins too. (Album)
Did a short shoot with Nicole, which turned out majorly a failure.. This is probably the best photo I took that day..
Learnt how to bake my own red bean buns. (Link)
Watched the finale of Windchimes in a Bakery in the cinema. LOL. Everyone cried, I swear. (Link)
Started to do self shoot more regularly.
Really, more often.
Had a lovely time learning basic makeup stuff from Mr. Tanabe.. And I’ve come to realize that I look like a big ass ape with thicker eyebrows. (Link)
I had an opportunity to test drive a Honda City Hybrid for 3 Days 2 Nights! (Link)
More self shoots
Back in Singapore again. (Link)
Did a shoot with Vania. (Link)
Our last special panorama photo together before Bryan left for UK.
Ate the most amazing Vietnamese baguette sandwiches. (Link)
Greatest achievement of the year. Just go read the blog entry. Go. NOW. (Link)
Oh my, Hennessy Artistry was so long ago??
Self shoots has been a thing for me.
Got a chance to attend the launch of Beaubox, AND review it. (Link)
And then, I got to review the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite. Oh god, what a mouthful ! (Link)
Went to the FMFA Pre-Party with DJ Chuckie.. Not that I’ve heard DJ Chuckie play long enough.. (Link)
Dee’s party was the biggest deal of course.. (Link)
Had my most expensive scrambled eggs ever.. (Link)
Did a shoot with Serene on the last day of 2013, my childhood friend. Known her for as long as I could remember.. Roughly 16 years.
That’s a wrap up for my 2013. What about yours?
Yuki told me about this new app in PLAY Store for Samsung Users out there. It’s only in Beta stage but it seems pretty promising.
I love their super hipster welcome screen and side menu.
So here’s what the app is about..
1. They recommend you sweet apps (Including reviews) that they think might suit you.
2. They tell you about the sweetest discounts and deals you can get (easily!)
Well, that’s all that I’ve explored so far.. I know they great rewards and exclusive contents from experts, but I’ve yet to see them yet. And their suggestions are pretty darn accurate. I have no idea how they would have guessed that I’m a taxi kind of person.. Or maybe it’s a lucky guess… Hmmmmm …
Anyway, I’m gonna hang on to this app for a couple weeks and see what it can do for me.
Till the next entry! (:
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. (;
