Stylish & Capable with Samsung NX Mini

I've been using this baby Samsung NX Mini for almost four months and I have to share with you again how I feel towards this stylish yet capable little cammie! (Check my previous posts about the NX Mini here and here)

Some of the pics I captured through the lens of NX Mini

Have I not mentioned that almost every Instagram post of mine (@yeeingng) were captured with this Samsung NX Mini? Best of all - it's hassle-free coz transferring pictures from the NX Mini to my phone is just one touch away!

If I have to just say Three Big Things I love about the NX Mini, it would be because its
  • Stylish, Slim, and Compact. Able to function like a semi-dslr but not bulky. Just think of it as a phone!
  • Easy to transfer to phone to share on social media platforms. Perfect for people who loves sharing pictures like me!
  • 180' Flip-Screen! Need I say more? Perfect for selfie-freaks!

What if you're not sure if the NX Mini fits your demands or needs? Let's see if you're the kind of person I described here :

You love taking pictures, more to amateur instead of professional. You might venture deeper into photography in the future, maybe not now. You're deciding whether to get a smartphone with good camera because you think cameras are usually bulky. That's also because you love editing your pictures in your phone with various editing apps. You're into selfies and wefies too. And most of all, you have a minimum budget but at the same time hoping to get the most value out of it, ie : above average picture quality.


If that sounds like you, then you'll definitely love the NX Mini. Here's why. 


  • The NX Mini fits almost everyone, ranging from people who have no knowledge of photography, to people who knows a lot. That's because it's very much user-friendly, and it has interchangeable lens. Remember? You have the option to upgrade the lenses in near future. 
  • Not only that, the NX Mini is just as thin and tiny as a phone. Yes, it can fit in your pockets. Now, if you're already thinking whether or not to get a phone with a good camera, that means you're a all-in-one kind of person. Love hassle-free kind of thing? The NX Mini allows you to send the picture to your phone in less than 5 seconds with one touch (NFC), or you can transfer through wifi. That's so me, my Instagram pics are almost all from the NX Mini. 
  • Plus, its flip-screen and wide angle lens allows you to selfie/wefie easily in concerts, parties, gatherings, dates, and etc etc. Picture quality? They are all vivid, clear, and sharp, with lots of modes to choose from.

Jake's Charbroil Steaks

This is the steak story of my life. 

I never thought I would fancy steaks so much until I tried them at this place called Jake's Charbroil Steaks. Best steaks I have so far. I would not hesitate to go back to Jake's Charbroil whenever I'm in doubt. Still searching for better steaks out there but currently nothing top off Jake's. 

There's only two Jake's Charbroil Steaks in Malaysia. One in Starhill Gallery and one in Medan Damansara. Went to both, and they're equally satisfying.

Jake's Charbroil Steaks Starhill Gallery


It's my second visit to Jake's few weeks ago and I went to the one in Starhill Gallery to celebrate the boyfriend's achievement in his career. Congratulations again baby. Come to think of it, the first time we went to Jake's in Medan Damansara was also to celebrate the boyfriend. His birthday it was. Great celebration venue I would say !


The entrance's setting at Starhill is extraordinary like that. 





I still remember that day was a hectic day. Went to a event in the morning, then to the park for some random photographies, and finally I realize I didn't bring spare clothes to change for the night. But thank God I found something decent I left at boyfriend's place to wear. While typing this, I suddenly remember I need to clean up my clothes section at his place, it was a pile of mess.  


Beef taco
MUST order. I don't know what taco really is until I tried this one. Crispy other layer and cheese yet juicy fillings. 

Aus Wagyu Sirloin
MUST order too. It's damn good. You'll understand why I ordered the same thing from the first time we visited Jake's. 

He ordered something different this time. Some beef burger if not mistaken. Once again, it's good. Surprisingly, this burger's price is comparable to the ones in TGI Fridays.

His mandatory facial expression. Even with the burger. 



Ok . I love it. Taste like heaven. 


Sorry I couldn't remember the individual prices but the total bill came about RM 300.

Jake's Charbroil Steaks Medan Damansara

Let's rewind back to 6 months ago. It was his birthday dinner, happened in Jake's Charbroil too (Medan Damansara branch). I know I know, what a late blogpost! He was like "You wanna blog about my birthday? Which happens like 6 months ago?". 


I found this place after doing some steak research online. It was a surprise dinner venue for him! He didn't know where we're headed until he reach this place. And I'm happy to say that he loves the steaks here very much. That's when we know we need to come back again in future. 


Pretty cozy and impressive deco. 

I forgot what's this drink called.

Beef TACO! Yum yum

I seriously forgot what's this.

But I remember this! Cause this is damn good. Same order, Aus Wagyu Sirloin.



He's a happy boy. Waitresses sang birthday song for him and it came with a complimentary piece of cake. 



Total bill was not more than RM 400.

Beautiful smooth feet with Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi

Hi guys !

Do you care about personal grooming

Whether you like it or not, self-grooming has become so important nowadays among both men and women. Whether you're a fashionable or not so fashion-conscious person, you know that society will judge by your appearance. 


It's not hard to take good care of yourself given that there's so much products available out there today. For example, how do you smell? Do you apply deodorants or perfumes? Also, your hands and feet can tell a lot about your cleanliness. Trimmed nails, manicure and pedicure, and ... and what most people neglect, the underside of the feet (callus, hard skin, dry skin, cracked heel, and you name it) ! 

I hate CALLUS ! It is a toughened area of skin which have became thick and hard due to friction. I mean, nobody likes it. But many people neglects that part because people tend to easily neglect things that they don't see everyday. Imagine if people around me actually observe my feet and saw those callus and dead cells, I'll be so damn embarrassed! It's like pimples on the face. 


This is the new Velvet Smooth Express Pedi by Scholl. Scholl is a widely recognized footwear brand that sells not only nice shoes and but also feet products that makes you healthier. That's why I trust this brand and when it came up with this cute little bugger I knew I have to own it! Feel so guilty for being ignorant towards my own feet all these while. 


So happy to get my hands on the Velvet Smooth electronic foot file. It's so mini and portable I can fit it easily almost anywhere in my bag and I can bring it with me when I'm off to the beach or a holiday. The rollers are operated at a high speed to gently buff away dry hard skin. Nope, doesn't hurt at all!


People like me who wears heels often will surely have dry and dead skin around the feet. There are many solutions out there before the Velvet Smooth came to save my life, including one type of feet mask that will help to peel off that hard layer of dead skin but I will not recommend using chemical products for your feet. I heard that those masks can even peel off your natural delicate skin. Other that that, going to those feet salon which helps to file dead skin works too but that's a big price to pay because you don't just go once. 


They operate on two AA batteries and the roller can be used up to 12 times. The pack comes with two additional rollers for replacement and two extra AA batteries. 

Say hello to the boyfriend's foot hahahahahhaa

To get that super smooth feet without any hassle, gently rotate the file over hard skin and slowly see the dead skin disappear. It's so easy to operate, definitely no fuss! You can do it everyday if you have the time! 

The other day I just did an experiment on the boyfriend's feet because I have already did mine the moment I got my hands on the products. Thanks boyfie for volunteering! Actually his feet doesn't look that serious compared to many people out there, but you still can see significant differences after I file his feet with the Velvet Smooth Express Pedi for a good 5 minutes. 


See, so much more smooth after using the Velvet Smooth Express Pedi! It's recommended to roll the device around the whole feet at different areas every 3-5 seconds. Basically just roll until you feel satisfied and then clean them feet and apply moisturizer! Walla, that's an express pedicure experience at the comfort of my own home. 


The Velvet Smooth Express Pedi will be available now at your nearest pharmacies for only RM 129.90 in August 2014.  For all of you who wish to experience the new Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi can head to One Utama Shopping Centre (Concourse, Old Wing) from 6-10 August 2014 from 10.30am to 9.30pm.
