What's on my iPad?

Hey guys,
Today I wanted to show you all what I have on my iPad! So this is the iPad 3, 16GB and wifi only and I love it to death. I won it in a lucky draw in 2012 and ever since then I use it daily. Right now it's becoming my entertainment and study tablet for me and I'm even writing this blogpost on this iPad now. It's very easy to type since it is large enough for my thick and fat fingers and its really comfortable to type on. 

So this is my lock screen on the landscape mode. Normally I use it as the landscape mode and this wallpaper is just the default wallpaper that the apple company had offered in all the iPads and iPhones.

Next I will show you what apps I use for day to day basics.
So I only have one page in the iPad since I only use it for entertainment and study stuff at home. Since its iPad 3 it's very heavy so I'm not brining this to university anymore. I only use it at home so I have quite a minimum apps that I only use. 
So I only have just a few selections that I use on my iPad. So I have photos app, App Store, iTunes, Safari those default apps that Apple came with. And I have chrome since I use it for my shortcuts and bookmarks. Then all the default apps that Apple came and then I have microsoft selection for my assignments and stuff. Then I have blackboard for my university and a few coding apps that I can learn during my free time. Then I have YouTube creator studio to check any comments and I have blogger that I am writing this blogpost on. Then I have messenger for Facebook since I only communicate with my boyfriend via Facebook. The I have Dropbox where I got all my textbooks, school stuff. Then I have my social media: Twitter and Instagram which i love so much. Then of course I have my must have: YouTube app.


These are the default apps that Apple came with the iPad.
I have c&h that the comedy me and my boyfriend love so much. Then we have jewel mania game, click network app for the Singapore YouTube network, Beautylish app for inspiration.
I'm obsessed with pirate kings recently. It is a simple app that you can play. 

I hope you enjoyed it. 
For disclaimer, this is not bragging. I'm sharing what apps are good and fun to try out. I'm also not paid to say the apps. 




My new Blogging Area

Hey guys,
It's been a while since I last updated. Today I want to share with you all my working space/ blogging space/ YouTube filming session.


So I have my laptop of course. The heart of the blogging. Well I use MacBook Pro 13'' with Retina Display. Well, mine is the late 2012 version so it's a bit late but it's still functioning for me and I really love it. I have both Windows partition and Mac partition installed due to my IT major in University. Mostly I use the Mac version for my YouTubing, Blogging stuff. And my Windows for school stuff.

Beside my laptop to the left is my little wooden block with the products I am blogging each week. This week I have Daiso Cleansing water, Clean & Clear active clear acne clearing cleanser, St. Ives Oatmeal and Shea Butter Lotion, L'Oréal True Match Foundation, Silk-n-Shine Frizz control Hair serum, Victoria Secret Pure Seduction Body Lotion and last but not least Maybelline New York the Rocket Voulm' Express Mascara.
And if you are wondering where I got my little Sweet Strawberry Tray, I got it from Daiso.

I have my camera from Nikon Coolpix S6600 camera for both my blogging photo shoots and my YouTube videos.

Beside the tray, I have a bunch of pens lying around since I love doodling and for the school as well.
Beside my camera, I have a SASA pamphlet and my bath and body works hand sanitiser.

And this is it. I really hope you enjoy reading it. :)

Affordable makeup/ $20 makeup challenge/ Daiso Makeup Review


As the photo indicates, "Beauty is about enhancing what you have!" So it's either you pay a lot of money to enhance your skin or you pay what you think it's great for your skin is much better. 

Today I am going to share what I think about Daiso products. If you don't know what "Daiso" is it's a Japanese shop that's cost very little. 100 Yen in Japan and most of the world is $2 and above. In Singapore, it's $2. It has everything from kitchen stuff to storage and even makeup, you name it, mostly they have it. 

So when I came to Singapore for the I was shocked that it's so affordable and some of the products are really good. This is only the few items that I tried out from the range and well let me spoil you, most of them, it's a HOT product. 

Okay, let's start from the beginning. 
So we have 9 products. I labeled the products by the numerical order. I won't go into details since I am planning to review them one by one.
So I will try to find the actual names in English since most of them are written in Japanese. I can only read Hiragana and some of the kanji but I am very weak in Katakana. >.<
  1. Ever Bilena Brow Powder in Brown (available in Black as well)
  2. Mascara
  3. Ever Bilena Foundation Stick in Light (available in Medium and Dark as well)
  4. Eyelash Curler in Silver (available in GOLD as well)
  5. Ellefar Hanataka Powder Nose Highlight Powder
  6. Eyeshadow in Brown (available in Pink, Grey, Blue as well)
  7. Heart ring lip gloss in Cherry Pink (available in Elegant Pink as well)
  8. Special Mix Cheek Powder in Magic Colour- more like a pinky purply shade (available in Pink Colour- more like a pink shade, Cute Colour - more like a coral shade as well)
  9. Ellefar Silk Touch Foundation in Beige10 (available in Chiffon, Ecru20 as well)
I will go more in-depth details and ratings in my other one by one reviews. Thank you so much for reading my review and I really hope this will help you in some ways.

November Favorites

I finally finished exams and FINALLY I can go back to blogging and YouTube. So this will be my long waited November favourites.

I was really busy with the studies and assignments and final exams so I didn't have that much time to get ready and get dolled up for university. And November was a bad skin month and I got acnes a lot since fast food all the time, not sleeping at night, brain usage is high! (Well not related i think :P)

So these are the favourites that has been helping me. I hope you enjoy it.


Clean and Clear: Clear fairness cleanser

Hello everyone I am in good mood for blogging so I am going to review another product. I've used it all up back in Myanmar so I am going to review what I thought back then.

Back then, my skin was oily yet the dry so I might call it "Combination". There were very little breakouts so back then I didn't know what kinda cleanser to use, and I tried it.



So I am going to tell you what the cleanser is all about.

Description: 
The combination of micro-scrubbing beads and the vitamin skin’s natural pinkish fair tone while the unique micro-oil absorbing system controls oil and prevent it from returning.

Usage: 
Squeeze a small amount on wet palm. As you work into a rich lather, gently massage product all over face, avoiding the eye area. Rinse off thoroughly. For best results use twice daily as part of your Clean & Clear clear fairness regimen for skin that's clean, clear and under control.

Ingredients: 
Water, Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, PEG-8, Myristic Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Lauric Acid, Synthetic Beeswax, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Polyethylene, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Methylparaben, Fragrance, Tetrasodium EDTA, Propylparaben, Niacinamide, Tocopheryl Acetate, BHT, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, o-Cymen-5-ol, Butylene Glycol, Cl 14700, Lilium Candidum Flower Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Prunus Cerasus (Bitter Cherry) Fruit Extract, Cl 17200

What I think: 
I think it's good for skin that is normal since it only does that I brightens the skin. However, for acne prone skin: it is not good since it broke me out. I like that it really brightens my skin but breaking out is not a good thing for me. 

Rating: 3/5
Recommend: This is personal though. If you have normal skin - yes I would recommend it. However, I am not sure for the Acne prone skin since with my personal experience it broke me out. 
Repurchase again: NO.

Dior Snow-One Essential Skin Boosting Serum Review

It is very late at night but it is time to blog one story for me. It had been hectic recently with the university and YouTube and social and blogging and boyfriend... everyday was so busy. But I finally finished the exams and now back to YouTube and blogging.

Today I am going to review the Dior Snow-One Essential Skin Boosting Serum. This has been the loved skincare item for people who has concerns about wrinkles and ageing. So it is mostly anti-aging properties.
I recommended my mother to buy this since she is in her 50s now and she never used skincare products. She just washed her face and that's it! She does not even moisturise. So I told her/kinda like forced her to buy skincare products since she was in Singapore and I thought it would be best if it is serum based.

A year had been passed and her skin become more radiant and a bit less wrinkles. It is a bit cooling and non-oily even for my skin. I also sometimes use it when I got back to my home country and I really like the scent of it and how light it was on the skin.

So far my mother said she was enjoying it but a bit annoyed by the fact that she has to do extra steps. However, everybody skin needs to be taken care of and skincare is the most important for our skin and healthy diet (a bit shy to tell you all healthy diet when I am not even obeying it sometimes). 

In short, it is a very effective product if you use it continuously. The effects are slow but I guess it is worth it. It is a bit high in price but I think it is a good investment.

Using Continuity between Mac and iOS

Apple had come out with iOS 8.1 just yesterday and OS Yosemite last week. I was really looking froward to their AirDrop files from Mac to iPhone or iPad or iPod and vice versa. However, the one thing that I was looking forward the most was the Continuity which means that you can leave your phone away and yet you can still make some calls and reply SMSs as well as you can continue your work between iOS devices.



First of all, I would like to tell you HandsOff  between Mac and iOS devices.
For example, if you are browsing in Safari on Mac, when you leave mac and pick up the iPhone, you'll see the icon showing in the left side conner of the iPhone lock screen.
Or vice versa, you'll see an icon beside the Finder on Mac. 

For the phone call, now you can make phone calls on your mac without even going to pick your phone while it's away. You can directly pick your call or make a call on your Mac or iPad. 
To get started, you need to do several things to make sure nothing goes wrong.

For Mac:
  • Must be connected to the same wifi
  • Open bluetooth
  • Must be connected to the same iCloud email
  • Must open FaceTime and log in to your iCloud email to make calls

Open FaceTime and log into your iCloud email!
  • Go to System Preferences > General > Tick the Allow Handoff between this Mac and your iCloud Devices









For iPhone:
Go to Settings > General > Handoff & Suggested Apps
  • Then for the phone call : Go to settings > FaceTime > 


    Then you can enjoy your more productive and easier to finish your work.

    Asian Girl Tag

    It has been a while I updated my blog and today, I want to share you my Asian Girl Tag video with you all. Hope you enjoy my tag. 


    Best Friend Tag

    Today I filmed a video with my best friend, Rema and it was really fun doing it. As you may know I live in Singapore and she's in Myanmar so we are really far away from each other and we have't meet each other for 2 whole years now. We talked to each other once a while since she's a working adult and my university life is so hectic with all the deadlines. No matter how our distances are apart and how little time we talk to each other, she is still my bestest friend. Hope you enjoy this video and subscribe to my YouTube channel.



    How to uninstall Adobe Application Manager (Mac OS X)

    Photo Credit: Softpedia

    Today I thought I will be installing adobe after effects to improve my editing skills for my YouTube videos. I installed Adobe After Effects and then these Adobe Application Manager and other related stuff was installed altogether.

     After that, I watched youtube for the tutorials for adobe after effects and decided to use just my iMovie for simple stuff and I uninstalled Adobe After Effects. Even though the software was uninstalled, Adobe Application Manager was still installed and I thought it was a virus.

     Then I researched and did everything that I could and that application manager wasn't able to uninstall. I tried uninstalling it the normal ways but then I tried this method and it worked.

    Click the "Finder" icon on the desktop, then click the "Macintosh HD" entry.
    Click the "Library" folder, then click "Application Support."
    Click the "Adobe" folder, then click the "Adobe Application Manager." 
    Drag the Adobe icon onto the "Trash" icon on your desktop. 
    Click "Finder" on the menu bar, then click "Empty Trash" to remove the Adobe Application Manager utility from your Mac. 

    AND~~

    Go to the "Finder" and search for "AAM". (They tried to hide it with the short form named "AAM") 
    Drag everything that ADOBE related to the "Trash" folder and Click "Empty Trash".
    Then go to the "Launchpad" and press the "Option" key for a while and you will see "X" button for the AAM application and just delete by clicking the "X" button which is deleting the application.

    UPDATE: 

    I had another incident that I install Adobe again, so this time round, they went and hide into other folders. If the above does not work for you, I hope this trick might help you out.

    Click the "Finder" icon on the desktop, then click the "Macintosh HD" entry.
    Click the "Applications" folder, then click "Utilities" folder.
    Click the "Adobe Application" folder and the associate adobe installers to trash. 
    Click "Finder" on the menu bar, then click "Empty Trash" to remove the Adobe Application Manager utility from your Mac. 

    I hope it's useful for you.
