Universe Conspiracy

Posted by on Dec 25, 2008 in Life

Sometimes, when you least expect it… It all just happens…

Serendipity… Universe Conspiracy…

Opportunity just comes in the least you expect it… and it’s up to you to make a choice to accept your Destiny…

So how do you know if something’s right… You will never truly know unless you take risks… If you feel life presents you with something… let your heart feel and your mind think… Be sensitive though of the signs and little miracles for it will guide you…

If you feel like no opportunity is brought upon you… change angles and change perspectives… Sometimes, the simplest things in life are what’s more important… and sometimes the best things in life are free…

So open your eyes to see one opportunity… Open your heart for the signs to feel it… and open your mind to interpret it…

Life is all about opportunities, choices and risks… make a bit of effort in playing the game:P

To date or not to date – a blogger

Posted by on Dec 22, 2008 in Entertainment and Lifestyle, Life

This idea actually came from my blogger friend ah Leang whose blog posts really are entertaining to me! 

Initially he blogged about not wanting to date a blogger… but a few days after, he blogged about the reasons why you should date a blogger!

Well, dating a blogger has its advantages and disadvantages of course.  But the bottomline is, blogger or non-blogger, it wouldn’t matter as long as you love him/her.  It’s just a nice entertaining read and I LOL-ed reading it and wanna share it to you all!

Micro-blogging is such a handy dandy tool that I sometimes update my stuff there and forget to blog already! Now recently I have had the busiest days in my life!

kena hectic social life lah…

kena heavy work load liao…

(I miss speaking engrish-malay >.<) and I miss my shouter friends so bad…

Now I attended banyak (many) events and stressed myself out with lots of work.

But all is well when you’re trying to live your life to the fullest!

What’s more lovely is right now I’m trying “Quick Press” for a hassle-free, quick blog update! FREE WRITING! Coz that’s what I’m good at… and tell you I fail in constructive writing >.<

So there… all is busy but I am happy… for my rockstar is here and I have an unlimited supply of adrenaline to get going courtesy of my rockstar inspiration!

Also with friends that have been with me all the way.. many thanks! I have never felt so touched in my whole life to know I have such wonderful friends.

till the next update… hoping the holidays would not suck up my gutt 😛

xoxo,

Capturing Unexpected Moments with Samsung Pixon

Posted by on Dec 13, 2008 in Art & Photography, Events, Music, Tech Chic, Travel

 

Samsung Mobile Uncovers the Samsung Pixon

Everyone loves to play photographer these days. With technology allowing us to capture the fast and spontaneous moments in life, ordinary camera phones would no longer do. Keep ahead of the shutterbug pack and take clearer, sharper, and more stunning photos with the latest offering from Samsung Mobile, a leading innovator in mobile phones.

Taking cue from its name, the Samsung Pixon M8800 offers the ultimate in camera phone technology. Featuring an 8 megapixel camera, advanced picture-taking functions, photo and video uploading features, and a large touch-enabled screen, all housed in a sleek and stylish casing with a dual face design, the Pixon is set to take picture taking and photo blogging onto a whole different level.

Combining the powers of a real digital camera with the ease of use of a full touch screen, the Samsung Pixon enables users to take photos in a snap. Its Intelligent Imaging features, such as Fast Advanced Shake Reduction, Face Recognition, and Auto Contrast Balance, can help even the most novice shutterbugs take clear, sharp images with stunning colors. The Pixon’s new Photo Browser function also categorizes snapshots by time, color tone, and composition, making photo browsing easier and faster. Users simply have to tilt the phone to control their picture browsing experience.

For the more adventurous auteur, advanced camera features are available for them to play around and experiment with, take beautiful landscape shots with the Automatic Panorama Shot, and snap perfect profile photos every time with the Smile Shot and Blink Shot features. Keep photos organized and in sync with your phonebook contacts through the Face Tagging service, and even sort your pictures any way you want—through face recognition, location, time, and file name—for your own personal convenience.

Share your memorable moments with the rest of the world with the Pixon’s Photo Sharing and Video Uploading services. Do your mobile blogging in an instant in 30 of the most popular user-generated websites: Flickr, Facebook, Blogger, WordPress, Twitter, and so much more. Mobile blogging allows you to upload items including photos and videos taken on your mobile phone to your blogs, social online networks and other websites without going through a computer. This feature works with Shozu to allow you to keep your friends and family updated on your life. Simply use the embedded Shozu program to upload mobile contents to the Web with just one click.

The Samsung Pixon is not just a sight to see but also a melody to keep you up on your feet. This is the power of Pixon’s Music Recognition Feature. Simply record a ten-second sample of that great new song you just heard whilst walking down the street, and Pixon will access its extensive database to help you identify the song and the artist… and even the album! An additional option gives you the chance of purchasing the music so you can listen to it to your heart’s content… legally!

The Samsung Pixon matches its highly functional and advanced camera phone technology with a stylish yet user-friendly design. Its large 3.2” LCD with 16M Color TFT enhances your phone experience, while the full touch screen keeps everything easy and simple. You can do whatever you want by simply pressing any of the “desktop-like” icons on the screen which are more popularly known as “widgets”. In its 13.8 mm casing, the Pixon is a camera phone powerhouse that easily fits the palm of your hand.

And as they say, whatever you can hold is at your utmost control. Samsung Fun Club, the official website of Samsung Mobile, is giving its users a chance to design/personalize a Pixon phone and share it with all their contacts in their Facebook and Friendster. And the grandest of them all will be taking home a brand new Pixon phone. All you have to do is log on to samsungmobile.com and start widgeting your way to the SFC Pixon Application’s top choice.

So unleash the photographer in you with the Samsung Pixon M8800 and capture unexpected moments to store and to share with the world.

The Samsung Pixon will be available to the Philippine market on the 3rd week of December 2008 recommended retail price of Php 26,000.

Every Kick Counts – A Click for Literacy

Posted by on Dec 10, 2008 in Advocacy, Events

Every Kick Counts – A Click for Literacy

A Click for Literacy

Books are not always the building blocks of education. In this modern age, learning can start with a single click.

This is the principle that propelled Every Click Counts, an initiative spearheaded by dietary supplements global leader Nutrilite. As a brand in the business of improving people’s lives, this effort is Nutrilite’s contribution to support children’s literacy in the Philippines.

Every Click Counts is Nutrilite’s way of reaching out to the community outside of its own,” says Joy Andres-Villareal, Product Manager of Nutrilite. “The Internet is a very powerful medium and there’s no better way to maximize its potential than to support an advocacy like this.

By logging on to the site www.everykickcounts.com, internet users around the globe can contribute $ 0.15 to the Amway One by One campaign, a project that promotes children’s welfare worldwide. This will be given to the country of the website visitor to support their chosen organization. In this case, Nutrilite will use the funds to aid Philippines One by One Campaign for Children which is geared towards increasing literacy among Filipino kids.

“We are hoping that the Philippines will generate millions of clicks for this endeavor. We know for a fact that Filipinos are very internet savvy and we want them to spend a few minutes of their time to rally behind this cause,” explains Villareal.

This program is also in conjunction with Nutrilite’s partnership with international soccer superstar Ronaldinho. Dubbed as the Goal-by-Goal campaign, Nutrilite will make a $10,000 donation to the Amway One by One program for every goal that Ronaldinho scores. These funds are distributed to charity partners in the country where each goal is scored.

Through these two innovative programs, Nutrilite aims to create a global movement geared towards achieving optimal health and protecting children’s welfare – one click and one goal at a time.

Nutrilite is the world’s leading brand of vitamin, mineral and dietary supplements with $3 billion in sales in 2007. Nutrilite is grounded on the most advanced research and technology and is exclusively distributed locally by Amway Philippines. For product inquiries or to be an Independent Business Owner, please call 814-8181.###

While I was on Hiatus

While I was on Hiatus

I had to suspend my blogging activities for some certain reasons: online stalker, stress, mental block and physical sickness. There, there… and now you know why. So, to all my readers and to those who subscribed to my blog, I thank you for still supporting me and without you all I would not have the urge to blog again. The Hiatus is over and your Blog Ambassadress is back!

To my shoutout family paiseh lah… I’ll be shouting from time to time but lately I’m just hectic like crazy and I miss you all!

Now what did I do while I was away?

Hey Shawty… It’s your Birthday!

It would have been the saddest birthday!  If not for my lovely friends and family!
