Don't lose it all!

Photobucket

It’s always assumed that relationships are blissful – but wait! It’s not all candies and kisses, sometimes there a lot of hardship to deal with and it can be really emotionally taunting and mentally demanding. What’s worse is, pairing the idea of a long distance relationship with the sad soppy case of losing communication.







They seemed happy...

Although they were going to be far away from each other, they seemed like they were in it forever but then suddenly everything changed! Did he find someone else? Or is it just a simple misunderstanding? Relationships are an uphill battle or sometimes a downwards spiral – it’s really how you manage it but these two sadly went the wrong way. Who’s that guy at the end? Does he like her? And does she like him too?


Most importantly, in the case of Amy & Nick’s relationship, it shows that if there is no data, you’ll lose it all. After all, everything is on the internet now and it costs almost nothing at all. Just as long as you have data, relationships will go smooth sailing so dial *128# to sign up for any pack to have it all.

Techduology Live at Starbucks!

If you have no idea who or what is Techduology, It is the combination of Ben Jern from Fly FM & Jason "SmashpOp" Goh which brings you reviews and latest happenings in the Tech World!  Combining their passion and enthusiasm together, they become one of the most powerful duo's you can think of! You can check them out at www.techduology.com!

bringing about 150 people together to crowd into Starbucks at Taylors University, their show was done live where we could see how it all goes around in their world. of course since its live, There were plenty of "bloopers" in the midst of the show!

The whole show was about 3 hours and i would categorize it into a few sections. The main highlights of Techduolive were such as:

1) Reviews!

Jason & Ben Jern bringing the review on the new Sony Duo 11

Other than that, there were also reviews on such as the Sony headphones, the new Nokia Lumia Casetagram, and much more! They shared their insights on the products to us and we were able to feel, touch and experience the knowledge and fun they knew about it!

Photobucket

One of the reviews that they did was the Sony Smartwatch! Well you do know at times that you may miss notifications and calls as you couldn't feel your phone. The Sony Smartwatch is definitely for you! You can basically sync your phone to your watch, and if there are any notifications, it will vibrate to let you know!

The Sony Smartwatch is good to go with any Android phone *sorry apple you're losing out on this* and basically:

In terms of notifications,
- You're able to check your messaging items such as your texts, emails and much more!
- Your calender will appear on your watch where it reminds you of what you should do!
- You're able to check your online apps such as Facebook and Twitter on your watch!

In terms of Android Remote
- you're able to download your smartwatch apps from the google play store. Plenty to choose from! Think of the possibilities!
- You're able to control your Music Player of your phone from your watch!

Nissan Almera Food Trip to Malacca!

Photobucket

The title says it all! Nissan has launched its new Nissan Almera and they have taken it to a different level. The Nissan team & G2PR invited bloggers and media for a food trip down to Malacca while test driving the all new Nissan Almera

Malaysia is known for its food and where else better to try all of it at Malacca where there is such a big mixed heritage over there! We gathered at the Nissan showroom at Southgate and a huge convoy of Nissan cars were ready to head to Malacca. We had 2 Nissan X-trails, a Nissan Teana, a Nissan Sylphy, A Nissan Latio & the star of the show, 5 Nissan Almera's! Thats a total combination of 10 cars for the convoy!

So we started our drive down Malacca, as it was a 10 car convoy, We can't really speed, but well, eyes were watching all of us drive down as we were the stars of the show! our first stop was Aunty Koh's Cendol located at the outskirts of Malacca, Bukit Rambai! It is only open on weekends from 12pm until the cendol finishes. which is normally about 1-2pm. so you better be early to avoid disappointment!
