SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB S

I am happy to say that this year I have received the first tablet ever in my life!
And I couldn't be more thankful to Samsung for giving me the opportunity to experience the Samsung Galaxy Tab S :) 
As a movie fanatic, I have always wanted a tablet to enhance my movie watching experiences so it was always on my list to own a tablet where I could load all my movies and catch them on the go.
Not forgetting how I love travelling, having a tablet would make my trip much easier as now I don't have to lug my laptop around with me!
Out of 2 sizes, (8.4”/10.5”) I picked the 8.4" Titanium Bronze LTE set.
I like that it is portrait orientated and looks just like a bigger version of my phone!

One of the main features that caught my eye first was the ultra slim and sleek design of the tablet, 
this means bringing it around won't be an issue as it's really light and easy to fit into most of my bags
 The next key feature would be one that completely bought me over;
 it's the Super AMOLED Display that the Samsung GALAXY Tab S is equipped with.

With the Super AMOLED Display, you can expect to view visuals with richer colours and deeper contrasts. 
Especially with HD videos, the visuals have never been clearer to me... ever!
I remember downloading my first movie in HD and boasting about the colours to Jackson and I kept going:
"It's damn clear right!?!? Just look at the colours and how clear everything is!"
The first HD movie I downloaded on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S is Divergent! Check out how clear the quality and visuals are :) 
Another feature would be the Adaptive Display. The adaptive display feature automatically adjusts the colour gamut, sharpness, and contrast according to your environment and usage. So for example, if you switch from browsing an e-book to a movie, the screen will readjust its colours and brightness accordingly! There are 3 screen modes that let you choose amongst 
AMOLED Photo, AMOLED Cinema and Basic Mode 

So far I have been taking advantage of the huge screen to browse Facebook, Youtube as well as Instagram and I have to admit that the experience is soooo different from using the phone! Everything seems bigger, brighter and clearer :) 
I can't wait to further explore more of the functions on the Samsung GALAXY Tab S, for all Samsung phone users... do keep out for another function which I will feature in the next post where I go in-depth to some of my favourite apps and functions! 

At the meantime, do pop by any of the Samsung stores to try out the GALAXY Tab S for yourself!

BRUNCH DATE / COASTAL SETTLEMENT

A quick visual diary of my brunch date with Sis last week before I flew to Bangkok!

We've been making plans to visit different cafes around SG to have brunch but sadly this is our failed brunch attempt since we visit the Coastal Settlement on a weekday and they didn't have All day Breakfast (probably only on weekends so do note!)
Despite not getting our breakfast food.. we settled on lunch-equivalent food haha 


 We had Truffle Fries, Mushroom Truffle Carbonara and All Cheese Pizza (I think...)
The dishes were pretty mediocre, gotta say that the carbonara was pretty bad tho :/ I think I would be much happier with Pastamania's normal Carnbonara #justsaying 
Nevertheless to make up for the pasta, the pizza was pretty yummy so we managed to find something that we were happy to enjoy :) 

 Tams suggested dessert so we had waffles and ice cream! I loved the dessert as well!
It was perfectly baked waffles along with a scoop of chocolate ice cream, yummy :) 

Overall I thought TCS was pretty... so-so. I wouldn't go back if I could tho, mainly cos location wise it wouldn't be convenient for me as I don't own a car. Secondly I feel that there would be places with better western cuisine. However, if given another chance I might go back once more to check out the breakfast menu! :)

ELIXIR JUICE SG

Today I will be sharing with you guys one of my new found addiction- Cold Pressed Juices!
I have always been a fan of fruit juices, if I'm out and I have to get something to drink, it would either be water or (if available) fresh juice :) 
Not a huge fan of soft drinks so if I get to pick it would be juice anytime! 

However, juices sold from the normal stores you find everywhere are mostly made with a centrifugal juicer. A Centrifugal juicer uses blades that spins at more than 3000rounds/min which generates lots of heat that ends up destroying all vitamins and minerals.. bummer zzz :(
So how can we enjoy a nice glass of juice yet reap the benefits and vitamins from the fruits/veggies
without getting them destroyed? Here's where ELIXIR JUICE SG comes in! 

ELIXIR JUICE SG supplies a variety of freshly made cold pressed juice made with hydraulic pressed juicer to extract juices from fruits and vegetables. Retention of vitamins and minerals are 
more than 400% when using hydraulic power to "sqeeeze" 
the juices out as compared to a centrifugal juicer.
Juices are made after your order is taken and delivered fresh so you don't have to worry about them being pre-pressed or delivered stale. So here are my juices which were being delivered to me! 

Right now there are 32 types of juices to choose from on ELIXIR JUICE SG, all made out from a combination of fruits and vegetables. These juices were developed to serve as a rich source of nutrients
and to compliment your daily meals. 
In fact, you can drink it with your meals or have it as a meal itself!
There is a minimum order of 6 bottles so you can customize your juice package from the list of juices available on the site. For my package I had the,
(from left) x2 Princess Elixir, Pomegranate, x2 Breakfast Fruit Buffet and Weight Shifter 
I was so happy to receive them for myself as well as to share with my family as they love juices too!!!

There are in fact, many benefits from drinking these cold pressed juices...
What I love about the juices on ELIXIR JUICE SG are that it fits into an everyday lifestyle so well! 
Unlike other juices we find out there which has programmes/detox programmes, the benefits from these programmes are only temporary. However to enjoy the long term benefits from these juices, it's good to drink them on a regular basis! Thankfully the juices from ELIXIR JUICE SG are very reasonably priced hence drinking them regularly wouldn't burn a hole in your pocket on the long run ;)
 Here's me trying out my first bottle of ELIXIR JUICE SG - Breakfast Fruit Buffet
This juice contains: Orange, Blueberries, Banana and Lime
"It is commonly said that good things comes in small packages. This is especially true for Breakfast Fruit Buffet as it is packed with the rich benefits of Blueberries, Oranges, Lime and Banana. Blueberries is known to contain more antioxidants than any other fresh fruits. These neutralizes free radicals which are introduced into the body through exposure to smoke, toxins and pesticides, thereby boosting the immune system. Taking a glass of Breakfast Fruit is necessary for the general well-being of the body, revitalizing you, keeping you refreshed all day long"
 At first taste it was a little citrusy, after a few more sips I could taste the blueberries followed by a little hint of banana. I had it chilled so it was a really nice and refreshing drink to have in the morning!
Also, I could have this entire bottle for breakfast alone as 1 bottle was enough to fill me up and yet provide me with tons of nutrients to start my day off with :) 

Of course you don't have to have this for breakfast alone, you can enjoy a glass of it with your meal and drink the rest later in the afternoon! 
 Here's a close up of the juice where you can see the bits and pieces of fruits! 
The texture is unlike the normal juice, it's slightly thick (like a smoothie) yet healthy, after one glass I truly am in love with this juice!!!
I like how just one bottle is sufficient for me and easy to carry around so I can just
pop it in my bag if I'm heading out and enjoy my juice while I'm running errands! :)

Here's something great for you readersELIXIR JUICE SG is glad to offer a $4 gift-card for
those of you reading this so remember to quote " $4giftcardelixir " and enjoy this little discount
while purchasing! :)

I would truly recommend you guys to give ELIXIR JUICE SG a shot as I am truly hooked!

GUIGA

First official meal after I got back from Bangkok, some K-BBQ!




Didn't really think this place was good tho... slightly overpriced/overcooked steam egg with chao-tah taste and.... just pretty much meh? Haha I think I like Superstar K better! Nevertheless it was a great evening spent. Caught the Expendables 3 over the weekends too and I thought it was awesome!

MY EXPERIENCE WITH SAMSUNG S5 LTE SO FAR..


So I am back with a second review of my Samsung S5 LTE 
It's been about about a month and a half since I've switched to the Samsung S5 and so far I have to say that the phone is living up to expectations! I have managed to explore further into some of the apps and functions that have helped me enjoy this phone to the fullest :)

The first main function which I felt has helped me COUNTLESS of times would be the 
Ultra Power Saving Mode!

what the Ultra Power Saving mode does is that the entire screen will turn into greyscale and limits you to access to use up to 6 apps.
This helps conserve the battery life until you find the nearest charging point!

Another feature that I am thankful for on the Samsung S5 would be that it is... WATER RESISTANT!
For those who didn't know, before I had the Samsung S5, I kinda dropped my previous phone into the toilet and it died on me since then.
Now with the GALAXY S5 LTE, if such an accident were to happen again, I can be thankful that my phone is water resistant :) 
The Samsung S5 also features Fingerprint Security so for those who think a passcode is not sufficient enough to keep your phone secure, you can always opt for the fingerprint security feature which works with you swiping down on the home button!

Next up would be for the fitness junkies, with the S Health app on the Samsung S5 LTE,

you can rely on this app for real time fitness coaching as well as trying out several exercise mode
all within your phone! Not to mention, the phone has a built-in heart rate sensor which you can use to
measure your heart rate while exercising :)

All you have to do is place your finger on the sensor located at the back of the phone and let the sensor do it's job!

After capturing your heart-rate, you can use it as a gauge while working out!

Aside from the S-Health, we have the Samsung Gear-Fit!
The Gear-Fit is basically a device which works as an extension of the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE that you wear on your wrist .
It can receive incoming calls, texts, emails all through the device without having to hold the phone in your hand! For the fitness enthusiasts, you can also use the Gear-Fit while working out to calculate your heart-rate, distance travelled as well as your calorie-intake :)



It also doubles up as a watch with interchangeable home-screen display and wrist bands!
I also love that the Gear Fit is water and dust resistant, just like the Samsung GALAXY S5 LTE

There is just too many things I can do with this little device! :)

So far I am pretty please with my experience on the Samsung S5 LTE! The part of the phone for me will always be the huge screen for my to watch my k-dramas on! Definitely a great and wonderful experience for me so far :)
I also love that with the Download Booster,, I can download my files and videos using Wi-Fi and LTE
simultaneously at 80-90% faster than just using either one alone!

Definitely a great experience for me so far! :)

I'm so glad I gave this phone a try!

For those who're keen to try and see the phone for yourself, pop by any mobile phone store and try it,
I'm sure you guys will love it too!
