A title that gets you thinking huh? What I wanna talk about today is not just about ordinary Wifi, but the Wifi feature of a camera! I've been using the Samsung NX Mini Camera for about 3 months now, and its definitely been great as I've not been lugging around my chunky DSLR to events or food reviews
One thing great about this is its Wifi Feature, where you can send/transfer the photos to your phone/email or other Wifi related categories in just a click of a button. I personally like this as I'm able to transfer better quality photos to be uploaded through my phone. It also resizes your photo to 0.5mb so it wouldn't take up much space on your phone, but the results are still spectacular
Here's how its done:
head into the Wifi Setting
Choose which medium you would want to send the photos to
For this instance, my phone which has the "mobile link" app
Select the photos you would want to transfer
Transfer the files
and the transfer is complete! and the photos are in your phone
Its definitely a great way as you wouldn't need to go home and transfer it manually through your PC. Check out the NX Mini at Samsung outlets near you!

Honestly this year's lineup wasn't as great as the previous years, hopefully it'll be better next year! But with the free flow of Sailor Jerry given to us, it was great :) Tell me who can get wasted on Yuna's performance? LOL

We headed over to the Sailor Jerry VIP Tent and there to meet up with the rest of the bloggers, and the setup was pretty nice as it brings an old classic feel to the atmosphere over there. What more, there were drinks being served free flow and we got free Sailor Jerry limited edition cups with each drink :)
Sailor Jerry is pretty awesome, as its a pretty smooth rum, with a vintage feel. Also I love how they showcase and market their product at this event

Hi everyone, recently I tried out this new booking site called OffPeak, and it is all about Food! With OffPeak, you’re able to book a reservation at a restaurant near you and it has a great selection of restaurants mainly in the Klang Valley, with 2 in Penang and 1 in Pahang
What’s cool about OffPeak? You get discounts depending on the time! For example, at 3-4pm(non-peak period) you may get about 30% discounts off your total bill. And it is also very convenient because you’ll be able to book it online straight away without having the hassle of calling up the restaurant to arrange a booking
So I tried out OffPeak.my to review 2 restaurants, named Fat Spoon, Uptown and La Bodega, Empire Shopping Gallery
So first up: Fat Spoon
Fat Spoon is known for its Nyonya-inspired delights that incorporate family tradition and Gen-Y ingenuity. I brought Eileen along and we ordered a 3 course meal for ourselves J Yippee!
Hot Chocolate – Rich & Chocolaty
Latte – Well Balanced
Seared Tamarind Prawns (RM18)
Verdict: the 5 pcs of Prawns were of medium size, there was a strong taste of Tamarind & tangy after taste. A little overpriced, but if you have the spending power, why not?
Kentucky Fried Oysters with Kaffir Lime Mayo (RM18)
Verdict: There were 4 pcs of oysters of medium size. Batter was crispy even after we waited for about 10 minutes. The Mayo didn’t overpower the oyster and is a great pair.
Moo Moo Rice Bow (RM16) – A hearty bowl of basil beef tenderloin served over rice & topped with fried egg + ABC soup
Verdict: It was delicious & one of their specialties, beef was tender with a slight basil after taste. The ABC soup washed it all down nicely. Great for the price being paid
Ulam Angel hair Pasta (RM15) – Angel Hair Pasta Tossed in Light Curry Sauce, Aromatic Ulam Herbs & Minced Chicken
Verdict: Very fragrant and has a unique taste. The sambal is slightly sour and not too spicy. Recommendation will not to overdose the sambal or it’ll kill the Ulam’s taste
Fat Chocolate Cake with Ice Cream (RM15)
Verdict: Cake was rich in flavor, but was a little dry and crumbly (probably it’s just that day as I had it before and it was alright), but the ice cream managed to “moisten” up the cake
Last Polka Ice Cream - Salted Gula Melaka (RM7.80)
Verdict: Definitely Unique, Something you’ll definitely enjoy
It was a great meal over there and the restaurant owner, Michelle was really pleasant with us. Do head over there and give it a try and of course, book it with OffPeak.my!

The next Restaurant I went to was La Bodega at Empire Shopping Gallery
It is one of the most famous Spanish Restaurants in town with plenty of outlets around. It serves great food & alcoholic drinks for anyone who walks in
This time I just ordered a main course with Eileen, so there won’t be much pictures on this one J We sat at the bar & ordered a paella & spaghetti
The Bar View. Pretty!
Paella Fideua (RM27) – Angel hair Pasta Cooked in a Paella Pan with Chicken, Cuttlefish, Squid and peas
Verdict: If you have time to spare, get a plate! As it takes about 30 minutes to cook this but its well worth it is really tasty and it was full with condiments. (not like those normal mee you get with very little meat & condiments)
Spaghetti Meatballs (RM28) – Lamb Meatballs in rich tomato sauce served with spaghetti pasta
Verdict: Love the lamb meatballs, it so much more tender compared to that certain brand everyone loves =P. The Sauce is thick and nice

To start things up, we’re always stuck on technology now, especially our phones every day, whether it’s walking around, being at home, a restaurant, or work, it has been embedded into our daily lives. Tell me how we can live without it
Gone were the days that we could just get a normal prepaid plan and use the legendary Nokia 3310 as now we need to have mobile data connectivity and there are so many plans to choose from. The question of the day is: what mobile plan suits you best?
I honestly have tried plenty of plans over the years, and there are only 2 which I would say I’m agreeable with
MaxisONE or Celcom First Premier
Both are the country’s leaders in mobile lines, and they have lived up to its name. In my line of work, I need to call/sms/whatsapp quite a lot and I would say MaxisOne plan has the advantage in this as its Limitless, but also Celcom’s rate of 12 cents for any SMS, Call, Video Call or MMS is also considerably very low.
As for Data, I normally use about 1.5GB per month only, so going with the Maxis OnePlan 2GB or Celcom mAdvance will be ideal
Why would either these 2 be my choice? Well Its pretty pricey (Both of them to be about RM130 per month) compared to other vendors like Digi/Umobile, but their network & coverage is pretty good over the years, and for me I would always choose quality as I wouldn't want anything to fail on me at urgent moments.
If there were a chance to change something about it, I guess lowering the rates wouldn't hurt too much =)
Coming to the next 2 vendors, Digi/Umobile will be the next in mind
Their rates are extremely affordable and it appeals more to the younger generation, as it’s cheaper and its well within the budget of a student.
For example, Digi offers 3GB with 100 minutes & 100 sms at RM78 and Umobile offers Unlimited Data with Free calls to Umobile numbers, 100 minutes to other Telco’s & 100 sms , which is leaning towards the direction of a student as they don’t call as much as we (working adults) do.
Definitely you save about RM50 per month compared to the top 2, but also there’ll be flaws as their network aren’t as good as Maxis/Celcom. So if you’re okay with not as strong coverage here and then, This would be a great package as you’re able to save about RM600 per year.
If they could improve on their network & coverage, definitely these 2 Telco’s will be the Telco to beat
So these are my thoughts about our top 4 mobile networks. What’s your opinion on it?
