Events Tech

My gadget wishlist

Sometimes I really hate attending blogger events or in other words where events bloggers get invited too (If you’re wondering how to get invited for events, you may want to check out 24seven.) as every time I go for a tech event, I’ll be lusting over the products. Grr.

I know most readers are complaining that they’re sick of reading about blogger events, I hear you! So instead of blogging about blogger events, I’ll be blogging about what gadgets have caught my eye during those events and why I’m lusting over them! I’ll be categorising them under different categories like Mobiles, Laptops, Cameras, Others etc.


I’ve been having my eye on both the Sony Ericsson Xperia 1 and the HTC Diamond.

Hee. That’s me playing with the Xperia! Pic obviously stolen from Claudia. 😛

I first spotted the Xperia with Claudia and Esther at the SE Event and I was fascinated with it mainly because it really resembles a sidekick. After watching way too many episodes of Gossip Girl, I’ve been lemming for a sidekick.

The HTC Diamond is another phone that I’ve been lemming for. To be honest, I would prefer the iPhone but I’ve already have an iPod Touch and as you guys know, I love manicures and long nails and iPhones are a big nono. I’ve seen the HTC Diamond and not only does it look beautiful, it’s pretty nifty.

Argh. I should not be lusting over any other phones right? I already have my Samsung Innov8. Must resist!


I’ve been a Sony Fangurl for ages and it’s no wonder that I’ve been attracted to the Sony Vaio. It looks sleek and is super pretty, only thing that was pulling me back was the price.


I’ve spoken about my love affair with Sony cameras, unfortunately my current baby, the Sony T10 died a few months ago. I’ve been thinking of getting another Sony camera since after all I’m pretty used to Sony cameras and I have the memory cards.

However… the kind folks at Ogilvy have lent me a few different Canon cameras and I am definitely sure that I want a DSLR!

I’ve tried the Canon 1000D. The Canon 1000D helps bridges the gap between point and shoots and DSLRs. It’s very easy to use and it’s at a very comfortable weight for us ladies.

I’ve used the 1000D to take pictures of Esther and Sabrina at their birthday party and at Bintan during my recent BLR trip and they have turned out great!

But comparing it to the 450D, it actually weighs a lil heavier only but the speed is definitely faster than the 1000D, it also feels less toy-like as compared to the 1000D thus comparing to them both, I would definitely get the 450D.

Aside from that, Ogilvy has also sent over the Canon Digital Ixus 980IS.

I was kind of skeptical over using a Canon P&S (point and shoot) at first as I’m very used to Sony’s functions. Surprisingly it’s very easy to use and there are a lot of cool functions. Jayden and I were playing with the colour accent function during SMB5 and we even took some videos using it! SMB5 Video will be up later!


I’m also looking for a camcorder, thankfully Daryl will be helping me buy The Flip! Look out for more videos once it’s here!

My earphones are almost broken. It’s THAT bad. I would love to get new earphones especially the Philips Advanced Acoustics In-ear Headphones. I prefer in-ear headphones as I feel it fits better and it’s more comfortable. I’ve tried these earphones during the Philips event and they’re fantastic! There’s definitely clearer as compared to other earphones!

I absolutely adore curls and a hair curler would be fantastic for this vainpot. During the Philips event, the kind Loreal folks curled my hair (and the other female bloggers too!) using the Philips SalonCurl Pro Curling Iron and now I want curly hair without perming. Am considering getting a curler.

So many things to buy! 🙁 I wonder if Santa would be nice to me this year. hurhur. What’s your gadget wishlist like?

Aside from that, thanks to the kind folks that have lent me products to review, invited me for events and all. 🙂

  1. It’s just me being critical – but are blogger hands-on reviews on these tech products are really as good as they sound? Or it’s their obligation to sweeten the product due to PR reasons?


  2. sorry nadnut, hijacking ur post…
    @brennan I guess that depends on individuals and what the user wants to share. imo, its not always sweet and all good. haven’t you read those I wrote? 😛

    no one is obligated to write only the good things. and PR ppl and brands should not expect to see only the goods and not the bads.


  3. Brennan: It’s just you being critical. 😛 Anyway, if I don’t like the products, I’ll say it as it is. We are not obliged to write good stuff about the products nor are we paid to do so. Hope this answers your questions. 🙂 On another note, welcome back!

    claudia: No worries. Hijack away! 😛
