Dream Trip to Macau

Hello loyal readers and fellow bloggers...
Tai ka hou? (How is everybody?)

As an amateur travel blogger, you can't imagine how ecstatic I am when I saw the announcement of Macau Your Way to An Experience of A Lifetime! Kam ngam geh! literally means what a coincidence in Cantonese because I've been longing for a trip like forever. The last trip I had was at our neighbouring country more than 6 months ago so it's about time. It is exceptionally rare to encounter a contest where blogging is associated with tourism. The best part is it is an all-expense paid trip! All thanks to Nuffnang and Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO), they help making dreams become reality.

Macau, I am so looking forward to see you!

Review: SJ4000 Waterproof HD Action Camera

Disclaimer: This is not sponsored or requested but based on my personal review.

Hello again, fellow readers!
I'm sure you have seen a lot of amazing and adventurous selfies and action-packed videos of people sitting at the edge of the Grand Canyon, jumping off a cliff into the ocean, swimming with the turtles, paragliding off snow-caped mountains, bungee jumping off Macau Tower, skydiving at New Zealand and many more. don't just look at your screen with envy. Now you can own a ridiculously cheaper and very very similar version of GoPro, SJ4000 by SJCAM.

Today I will be reviewing SJ4000 Waterproof HD Action Camera. Forgive me I am no tech savvy when it comes to this kind of review so I can just share what I experience about this product. You can find a lot of comparison online between SJ4000 and GoPro Hero 3. The distinct price difference makes a very good argument for the video quality. GoPro accessories works for SJ4000 as well.

What to wear during winter?

It's autumn now and soon we would have to embrace the chilly winter in December. Though gloomy skies may let us down, winter has always been associated with festivity. Lot's of celebration going on like Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year always gets me in the mood. However for tropical inhabitants like me, summer is all year round hence winter is very much appealing. I have experienced spring in South Korea, summer in my own country as well as its neighbours, summer-autumn transit in Japan (the worst season ever due to the typhoon) and autumn in Taiwan. I am so looking forward for a magical winter trip.

So here's briefly the essentials for a winter trip. It looks incomplete because I have tons of sweaters, undies, more boots, scarves and socks unable to fit in the picture.

Review: FreshKon Contact Lens

Disclaimer: This is not sponsored or requested but based on my personal review.

Hey there, peeps!

I will be reviewing FreshKon Colors Fusion contact lens. I just stocked up my colour lens so decided to write a review. This time I bought 3 pairs because of the buy 2 free 1 promo and total cost only RM100. I purchased Warm Hazel from the Dazzlers series while Glittering Blue and Gleaming Green are from the Sparklers series. I actually prefer the Dazzler series coz they look more natural and outstanding but my optometrist told me the green and blue ones were out of stock.

My fav colours...

Online Shopping: Summer Affaire

Disclaimer: This is not sponsored or requested but based on my personal review.

Hello again my dearies,

Just a month before I went on my summer getaway to Koh Lipe, Thailand I found a link to an online swimwear store from a Facebook link. This came at a good timing. Long ago I used to hate Facebook ads because they seemed so annoying but recent pop ups showed ads that are related to me and I find them useful. I guess Facebook has become smarter and smarter.
