SocialSync: Chilling Out with Canon

9.13.2014

guess what I do other than blog?

What happens when you get an opportunity to showcase your work of art with Canon Malaysia at Canon's 'SocialSync: Chilling Out With Canon', an event set in the morning filled with fun and connectivity with Canon's latest cameras and technology?. You take the leap and show the world what you can do.

That's exactly what I did and with the help of the fantastic Canon Selphy CP910 (I owned CP900 as well) I printed out pictures and made scrapbooks to showcase at the event. I also taught the basics of how to start your very own scrapbook to the media should they be interested to own a Canon Selphy CP910 to start their journaling their memories down.

Suddenly I become a scrapbook guru and it all started with the Canon Selphy CP900. My first purchase t0 start my scrapbooking hobby (2011).

Canon Selphy CP910  prints out quality photographs

where you can create personalized scrapbooks as keepsakes

it's a fun hobby, personalize as much as you can

 this is called a smash book
(latest trend of smashing anything up into a book)

I printed my favorite selfies for a start :)

Of course, besides the  Selphy CP910 Compact Photo Printer, the stars of the event were also Canon’s PowerShot G1 X Mark II, PowerShot N100, and Canon Image Gateway. Follow by Venetian harlequins, mime acts and scrapbooking!.

I was stationed at the Canon Selphy CP910 station so I watched as members of the media flock from one station to another, testing and having fun connecting with each Canon products showcased. These were the products of Canon's 2014 first half roll-out showcased here at the SocialSync: Chilling out with Canon, meeting the needs of every type of user - from the pros to the seasoned photographers to casual users (like myself) while promoting interaction, connectivity between friends and family. Lucky draws were also given out and I was so jealous of the winners walking away with one unit each of the PowerShot G1 X Mark II, PowerShot N100 and Selphy CP910.

The media also had the opportunity to have a trial of other innovative Canon products launched in the first half of 2014 such as the latest EOS 1200D, EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM and EF-S10-18mm IS STM lenses; Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II flash; and the latest PowerShot and IXUS models. 

once you start printing, you'll never want to stop!

The CP 910 supports Apple Airprint, allowing users to print wirelessly from their mobile devices. It also features new selectable print finishes, enabling users to toggle between glossy prints, or two other patterned finishing achieving a toned down textured effect.

2.7” adjustable LCD screen
Optional battery
Wi-Fi connection

If you're an avid scrapbooker or serial selfie narcissist, consider taking the leap to start a project of your own using the Canon Selphy CP910 which retails for RM449.00. I owned the Canon Selphy 900 RM399 in pink. Where to buy? Go to Canon shops or retailers. The printer does not come with photo papers so you will need to buy them separately. It retails from RM99 onwards (depending on stores) and each box comes with it's own supply of photo ink. Sizes varies from 4R to stickers to postcard sizes. It's super fun :) trust me. Thank you Canon Malaysia for the opportunity and love.

2015 IKEA Catalogue Makes You Smile

9.09.2014


Last week I received an e-mail from Ikea Malaysia asking if I would be interested to receive their latest catalogue. Bewildered, I asked what's the difference between me being a member (yes I am a Ikea member) receiving the new catalogue vs receiving it as a blogger?. Ikea told me this is something new and I would be the first few to receive the limited copies as a beta tester.

beta tester? *scratch head* alright. This is intriguing enough. Sent it over :)

Ding dong, the courier was at my couple of days later. He took out a big parcel and asked when did Ikea started sending parcels? I shrugged, no idea.

the latest 2015 IKEA catalogue 

I tore open the parcel and I thought Ikea sent me a Macbook or something. It was a white box, the kind you get you when purchase something from Apple. The 2015 IKEA Catalogue, the power of a book. Ikea has definitely gotten my attention. What a clever way to bring back books by injecting it with a cover of a daunting technology that would not fail when you have:
  • no electricity, because it has eternal battery life *lol*
  • nothing to install, it's all pre-installed with thousands of home furnishing ideas in HD pages
  • original touch interface, touch and drag to browse
  • no lag, instant page load
  • won't break if you drop it from virtually any height
LOL. Definitely had a hoot of a time browsing the manual and being reminded of the beauty of having an unbreakable technology in my hands. Got to give it to the people at Ikea *clap clap*. I enjoyed being their beta tester so yes thank you Ikea for sending me your latest technology, the BookBookTM.

Men are like Cosmetic Brands on Dating Apps

9.08.2014

tinder is fast becoming one of the hottest dating app
(thanks to Comedian Badboi JenHan)

Has anyone gone into dating apps? (Tinder, Skout, Paktor, etc). It's like the hottest trend now for anyone who's single (and well some married and attached ones as well which I wonder, what are their intentions?). I thought I start writing about my research on these apps and comparing it with make up. If men were like make up,  you would come across with:

A: Imitations from the street
B: Drugstore / Pharmacy brands
C: Luxury line

The imitations would put on an act as the perfect or "nice" guy and majority are Casanovas (players). They look like the real thing but they aren't. They lie about their status (rship/work/age/etc), pretend to be of a certain personality and about their intentions. In the end all you get is "cheap" make up which leaves you with a really bad breakout. Usually really good advertisement but look out for the fine print. May be for illustration purposes only.

Drugstore brands on the other hand are normal guys out there, genuinely looking for friendship or relationship. Like drugstore brands, they are simple, guy next door dudes suitable for the mass public. However they pretty much can't stand out with so many competition in the app just like deciding which lip balm you would want to buy at Guardian. You know there's so many, each with it's own benefits or lack of.

The luxury brands, or as we girls call it "atas" brands are of course what every girl would want but let's be realistic okay. Luxury brands are expensive, there's no big slash off prices unless you go to the warehouse sales, where they're out of season and about to expire. These men would never be found on the dating apps unless they are married or out there looking for "fun" to pass time. Normally good looking, successful or powerful. If they are looking for love on dating apps, it's just marketing strategy to find the one who would like them for who they really are.

Well that's what I think. What do you think? (if you have tried dating apps).

A New Chapter

9.05.2014

Today, while I was walkinglimping from my favorite cafe to the home that I will be saying goodbye to (yes I am moving to another place) someone called my name out. Surprised I turn to look and didn't recall if I know her. My memory these days has been shady, affected by the recent turn of events this year from losing my beloved iphone, to injuring my knee which caused me months of precious time; work wise and as a blogger (can't attend all the events or focus on reviewing anything), to the biggest disappointment of the year. Well I guess it all turned out for the better, just like the quote "Every cloud has a silver lining."


we can't stop, an inspiring song dedicated to the new me

As I start a new chapter in my life, my knee is smiling at me saying "Let's rock this together". I'll be moving to a new place, staying with housemates for the first time and enjoying what life has to offer from the emotional prison that I was in for years.

The lady who said hello to me, asked me how my knee was (surprise of my life). She works at the tadika few houses away from me. A blog reader, who reminded me, hey... you have friends even when you don't realize they are there. Reading.

Thank you. I am back.

8.23.2014

celebrating the burst of freshness with Rexona Women's latest product!

It's embarrassing when we girls "glow" and someone notices we're not emitting the beautiful fragrance of an exotic flower that we are. I am talking about B.O = Body Odor *runs*. This happens when your sweat mixes with bacteria and people give you the death stare. We can't stop ourselves from sweating and that is a natural for all of us modern women with busy lifestyle, from going to work, meetings, hitting the gym or rushing to meet deadlines!. Stress causes us to sweat too and boy, when I am stress? I eat. Just don't eat curry because I'll smell like curry *gah*.

You won't miss this, it's like a dance off game at the giant size Rexona Spray for Women with FreshprotectTM dome. My team mates ran and ran to score over 3,000 points.

10KG in 20DAYS: The HCG Weight Loss Program

8.07.2014

do you want to know my weight loss secret?

If you've been following me on my Instagram and Facebook, you'd know that recently I lost 10kg in 20days just by following the HCG weight loss program from skinartclinic.com under the supervision of Dr. Rachel Chew. I was determined to make a change in my life, following my battle of the bulge with roller coaster weight loss over the past years. Stress, sedentary lifestyle and an unhealthy eating lifestyle played an important role to me ballooning to a hefty 85kg this year.

10kg lost in 20days can you believe it?
(neither can I but I made it! phew)


see I'm 82kg in this picture (May 2014) with knee injury
(could't exercise anymore & started to pile on the pounds)

Why Lose Weight?
My first attempt to change was quitting my love for Coca Cola in March. Friends and families were finally relieved I given this up, it was the alcohol of my life. I also started to take daily walks in the evening and exercise when I could. I finally lost 4kg but it was slow. Couple with my knee injury, I could no longer exercise or walk. That lead me to consult with Dr.Rachel Chew for professional advise. She introduce HCG weight loss program to me and while this isn't the first time I have done HCG, I was mentally prepared to take on this challenge again and see how much I could lose. I've tried almost all kinds of weight loss programs and products out there, name it diet pills, patches, slimming treatments, meal replacement, slimming teas but the only one program that manages to give me the result I want is the HCG weight loss program. 

the clinic I went for HCG consultation

 the encouragement from doctor was a fuel for my determination

It's definitely more expensive than diet pills, meal replacements and what not products but it's cheaper than liposuction and slimming treatments. It's also fast and it taught me how to count calories and eat the right food. I can't disclose the charges on my program but I can say it ranges from RM2XXX for a 23 days HCG program or RM4XXX for 40 days HCG program. Depending on your assessment with doctor. She will need to know your goals, understand your lifestyle and body (metabolism, age, fat percentage etc) before she can advise you on the right course of program.

source: IAPAM

What's The HCG Weight Loss Program?
The HCG Weight Loss program is a weight loss program that requires daily injections of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) couple with a 500 calories a day diet. A normal female calorie intake would be 2000 calories a day. Changing that to 500 is no easy feat!. One needs to be ready and discipline to go on the HCG Diet and follow only a list of ingredients that can be eaten. The low down? No oil, no sugar, no carbs or starch for 20days. 

I studied nursing in Australia for a year and even did my practical at hospitals. I knew how to administer insulin injections to patients but doing it to myself is another thing!. At first I was scared but my determination to be on this program gave me courage to inject myself everyday right into my flabby tummy. Believe me, the flabbier it is, the less painful serious. Ant bite only :D it looks scarier but the needle is fine and one poke does the trick.

Anyway your body will thank you for it as you reset your metabolism and embarked on a healthy diet. You can say eat clean? As you will only require to eat one protein, one type of veg, a breadstick (optional) a type of fruit and have coffee or tea as much as you want. Doctor will give you a guide on what you can eat and drink.

Side Effects? Hungry?
Drinking lots of water is encouraged during this time. Won't you get starved? Hungry? Gastric? Well in my journey, I found out I wasn't as hungry as after I completed the program. The daily injections helps to burns calories up to 2000 a day from your stored fats (stubborn fats) and it is here that you get the energy you need. Unlike crash diets or starvation methods which leaves you looking unhealthy, haggard, lethargic, or pretty much obvious that you lost weight (and muscle). I still look healthy as an ox after completing my program. There wasn't any side effects in my program, I felt normal. HCG changes the way your body losses weight unlike crash diets or meal replacements (serious, go google).


An Awesome App To Help You With Your Journey
My HCG program was 23days but the first 3 days are called the loading days or "honeymoon" phase. Generally it's also called Phase 1 where you can eat as much as you want, anything. The fattier the better so HCG can kickstart its engine to start burning the fats away on Day 4 onwards. Some may experience weight loss right on Day 3 itself, but this is really depending on people. To help me track my daily calorie intake, my weight and what I could eat / or not was this really cool HCG Diary app on Itunes. It pretty much works like a daily diary where you can input your weight first thing in the morning, then select for breakfast / lunch / dinner your choice of protein, vegs, fruits to use. Each type you select reveals its calorie count and the app calculates how much you calories you've consume for the day.

No more worrying ops can I eat that? Oh no is watermelon allowed on HCG Phase 2? (Phase 2 means day 4 - 20 where you start losing weight). This app will help you you decide what goes into your tummy during your HCG program.

HCG Diary App Description

hCG Diary 1.0 is a free downloadable iPhone and iPad app that supports your hCG diet weight loss goals. Based on Dr. Simeon’s “Pounds and Inches” research, this app allows you to track your weight loss progress, monitor body measurement loss, track meal and daily calorie consumption and keeps a picture diary of your journey.

Key features:
  • weight loss journal
  • body measurement tracking
  • calorie consumption tracking
  • photo journal
  • resettable start date
  • intuitive interfaces
  • information screens of diet protocol

easy HCG diet tracking & calories counting

How Do I Prepare HCG Meals?
In short, you can say HCG changes the way your body lose weight. The 20 days Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) program helps you to lose weights rapidly when followed strictly. You can't be eating McDonalds and lose weight at the same time. No cheating either (having a sugary drink on day 7 of your program this will cause a stall on the effectiveness of HCG). There's plenty of information on HCG over the net but it would be better to call skinartclinic directly to ask and make your first consultation with the doctor.

What I will be sharing today is about how I managed to create wonderful simple HCG meals during my 20 days stint. This is also from the many request from readers which I did not expect from instagram inquiring about my meals. The recipes can be used even when you're not on HCG weight loss program (please increase portion size) but it works best if you want to see results within a short period of time with HCG. I am no great cook but I didn't want to feel depressed being on a low calorie diet eating meaningless cooked food. I found out that I could actually make it tasty (with the help of allowed seasonings and herbs for HCG) through marination.

I could only grill, baked, steam or boil my meals. Frying with oil is a big no no. You can't event use lotions and body creams during HCG (it will affect your weight loss). No oil, no sugar, no carbs, no starch. At this point, you think... dam what am I going to eat?.

 my HCG grocery shopping for 2 weeks
(lots apples, strawberries, vegs, protein)

protein: beef, chicken breasts, prawns, white fish, eggs
vegs: asparagus, wild rockets, lettuce, basil leaves, onions
fruits: strawberries, apples
lemon juice: salad dressing/stir fries/grill/lemon drinking water
Grissini Breadsticks (low calorie bread stick)

seasonings, herbs & sauces that I use
(please check ingredient list before buying)

P.S: Liquid Aminos is a substitute for soy sauce

diet food yucks? not if you marinate your food right!
(I usually marinate 30mins or leave overnight in the fridge)

Now my recipes sounds really simple right? The key is to use the right seasonings and to marinate your chicken / beef / seafood before cooking. The use of salt and amino acid should be kept to a minimum. Use seasonings of your choice since it's going into your mouth. There are plenty in the market to choose from, either already pre-mix, packed or can be bought fresh or separately. I use a lot of cayenne and paprika because I love my food spicy. It's really easy to just grilled them, it's the washing after that's a chore!. That's why I also cook my meats up for 2 or 3 days supply, packed them into the microwavable tupperware and just heat them up for lunch and dinner. It saves you time, energy to prepare daily and you can bring to the office!.

I try to eat less beef, and more apples on alternate days. Apples helps to give fiber and great for filling up your tummy. Sometimes my weight stalls for a few days, I'll take the apple day. Google HCG Apple Day and you will understand why. Only 6 apples a day and water if you don't see your weight changed for a few days. Sometimes that happens.

For water, you can take unlimited amount of tea and coffee (without sugar but you can use Stevia). To add fun to your water, you can use lemon juice or infused your water with fruits like strawberries, mint and lemon. If you're someone who loves soft drinks like me, substitute it with carbonated mineral water and add lemon juice - it's freaking awesome.
