Went to Universal Studios Singapore for Halloween Horror Nights 3 with Fidelis, Leon and their friends.

We have heard so much good stuff from the previous years from our friends and decided to try it out! Loved it! (Although I heard that previous years were more fun but we had nothing to compare!) Express pass was definitely worth the money!

I hardly use falsies as I find it hard to put on. My friend Camy passed me Star Lash from her company and I tried it out! Wasn't that difficult after all!

Loving the Wifey top that my colleague Samantha helped me order from Supre.

The hubby posted this on his Facebook stating that "Nadia scared people don't know she's my wife". Obviously meaning the Wifey top. We got funny comments from his friends about need not bother about what people think. LE SIGH. WHY NO ONE GETS OUR HUMOUR AH?! Are we that lame? :(

In a bid to get the Ching Chong Hubby to be more involved in my blog, I have asked him to start blogging on www.nadnut.com

Needless to say, he was very hesitant as he has never blogged before. But the one thing that sets aside Ching Chong Hubby apart from other boyfriends or husbands is that he is one of the most supportive partner ever. He is always game to attend events with me be it to listening to product reviews or even cooking classes or basically mundane stuff to him. Yes of course, he loves the usual food and travel events. He is a bigger foodie than me! Honestly speaking, he is harder to please when it comes to food and drinks. LOL.

Not only does he attend events for me, he has always assumed the photographer roles when it comes to these events. I can always trust him to take pictures while I talk to the PR people or toy around with the products.

And now.... jeng jeng! He will be helping to review certain stuff! The reason why I tweaked www.nadnut.com to be a lifestyle blog instead of specialising in food or beauty is that I wish to document as much as possible of my life. With my new married life, I hope to work on www.nadnut.com together with him.

And what better way but to start it off with reviewing tech items first? He well, wrote a paragraph and I added some thoughts of my own! So here's our very first review together!

Spotted this Enjoy 71 7" tablet during the recent IT show newly launched by MSI.

Like most of the other android device, it runs on the Android 4.0 ICS(Ice Cream Sandwich). It is one of the few that has IPS capacitive multi-touch (5 points) panel, running on 1.5GHz dual core processor with Mali-400 graphics, microSD card slot and has mini-HDMI connecting the tablet to larger external display for better viewing experience, something different from other 7" tablets.

The greatest advantage for this Enjoy 71 is the attractive price tag($199) which is lower than other 7" tablets, but relatively has the same features and specifications.

This thin, light weight (299 grams) and sleek peacock blue metal finishing wins me over other brands. Now i can just slip this into nadnut's bag without her grumbling about the heaviness compared to my current 10" bulky tablet!

nadnut adds: I tried using his tablet and I thought it was really light and relatively easy to use. As someone who has never used Android in her whole life, I thought it was easy to navigate. It was also really smooth navigating it and I think for the price he paid, it was really value for money. FYI, the hubby LOVES Android. So to him, bigger screen, cheap, Android = YAY YAY YAY. Crazy fella been addicted to Candy Crush and plays nonstop on his new tablet. Pfft.

I hope this will not be the first and last review from him :p Hope to do more! Perhaps I should have a new category for his reviews? And new banners? We'll see! Any comments? (COMMENT ASKING HIM TO WRITE MORE! HE IS SO SHY ABOUT HIS WRITING!)

Thanks guys!

Singapore Lifestyle Blog, Blackberry Playbook review, Blackberry Playbook video, First look at the Blackberry Playbook, Blackberry, RIM, Research In Motion, nadnut, blackberry playbook, tablets

The RIM folks were kind enough to lend me the Blackberry Playbook for a few weeks. As I was traveling quite a bit, the boyfriend had the good fortune to play with it instead.

Here's my first look at the Blackberry Playbook! Pls pardon the noob video!

I might consider doing a more in depth review, but we'll see if the opportunity arises!

My favourite Blackberry apps would have to be:

1. Blackberry messenger.

I think I save a lot of money using bbm all the time! It's easy to msg/send files/ping your fellow bb users and I always chat with Ccb via bbm every day! I can't imagine bb users NOT having bbm!

2. Ubertwitter


I actually prefer this over Twitter for Blackberry. The interface is much nicer and i am very comfortable with using ubertwitter. Plus uploading pictures to my twitter is really convenient!

3. Facebook


Now I can view facebook friend's requests, update my facebook status and upload photos all via my blackberry! Only thing I dislike is that when I try to view videos, it opens up on my internet browser and i can't view it! Does anyone else have this problem?

4. BeBuzz Free


Cute little app where you can set different colours to your missed call alert and incoming calls. iRike!

5. WordPress


So I can blog on the go! I post most of my mini notes using this app!

These are my five favourite blackberry apps. What's yours? Pls share!

Pssst. Didja know that there is a South Africa on Blackberry app? You can be updated with the stats and scores for the World Cup. Good for you World Cup siaokias!

Thanks to Nuffnang and Nokia, I had the opportunity to play with the Nokia X6 for a week!

Firstly, some background info on the Nokia X6! Nokia has launched the Nokia X6, which is their most powerful entertainment device to date! It combines 32GB memory with a slick interface with access to Nokia’s Comes  with Music!

Here’s my take on it!

The Nokia X6 offers great entertainment fun! I love the fact that I can keep in touch with my various social media activities with it! This is what I do on a daily basis.

1) I change my status on Facebook and check emails and friends request on the go!

2) I twitter all the time! I keep in contact with my friends via twitter. Follow me on twitter here!

3) I chat via msn!

4) I listen to my favourite songs to and fro work! Traveling is so boring! I need some music to keep me company!

5) I check out my favourite blogs via me phone!

Not only can I do that, the Nokia X6 offers some fun features like fun games like DJ Mix Tour, Asphalt 4 and Spore! I love Spore! Silly fun! And you can also play DJ by creating different playlists e.g. on diff genres or moods. I have a playlist for running! All the loud, fast music to keep me going.

You can also download music from the Nokia Music Store / Ovi Store for free for 12 months! There is no restriction to the number of tracks you wanna download!

The best feature of the phone to me?

The pictures taken are good! Look at the pic above. I like it! 😉

That’s my experience of the Nokia X6! I don’t wanna return it! :( :( :(
