Christmas is in 3 weeks’ time!

Are you or your significant other into selfies and spends too much time editing photos?

Fret not; The SHARP MS1 has 13-megapixel front and back cameras to make her or him look like a selfiequeen every single time.

Available in cutesy Pink and Hanayome White, the MS1 will also make a great accessory and match any of her wardrobe choices. (Note: the Pink is closer to cotton or baby pink, light and really gorgeous)

  • Equipped with high-resolution 13MP dual cameras
  • Elegantly designed with Japan DNA, curved 3D Corning Gorilla glass to show great reflection of lights and shadows, ensuring the beauty from all sides

Not forgetting the serial drama enthusiast who just loves passing their travel/break-time with a good sob-inducing K-Drama episode.

This Christmas season, why not gift them the SHARP Z2 for their streaming pleasure? With a 5.5 inch full HD screen, it is a must-buy for those who need access to their saved and online videos.

The smartphone also comes with a 32GB ROM – capable of supporting a 128GB Micro-SD – and a powerful deca-core processor that ensures quality streaming without any lag.

RRP: S$399

Key Features:

  • Powered by MediaTek’s Helio X20 flagship processor with Tri-ClusterTM CPU architecture
  • Uses up to 30% less power consumption
  • 3,000mAh battery can be recharged up to 50% in 30 minutes to maximise productivity

News: Expedia – Singapore vacationers are the second biggest international beachgoers recently released the results of the 2016 Expedia® Flip Flop Report, an annual study of the behavior and preferences among beachgoers around the world and found Singapore vacationers prefer to travel internationally when it comes to getting their dose of the sun, sand and sea.

I’m not into sharing full statistic or detailed write up but here’s an infographic provided by Expedia on their recent findings:

As a frequent traveler, whenever I get a chance to pick a holiday spot, my top choices will always be somewhere with a view or near coast. It’s just something from mundane daily routine and being stuck in a building or room.


My apologies for the lack of posts.
Still in the busy as hell period, which seemingly will get worse soon.

But I’ll add in some events or press release soon, when I find time.
