One of my favourite time blogging is usually when I own something new. Hehehe.. If you guys follow my Instagram account, you’d have known that I own an Apple Watch 2 now. It’s like a self-treat because I survive my first semester (not yet actually, still have 2 more assignments and one exam to go but you know, almost there).

Apple watch in general is something you should consider as ‘100% completely freaking unnecessary but completely 100% freaking AWESOME. That’s all I can say. I was torn apart at first. With that price, I could  totally buy 3 more Bonia handbags, an MK handbag maybe, make-up stuff from Sephora, more Jovians, more baju kerja, more shoes… A LOT! Plus, I already have a watch (my pink G-shock) so I didn’t think another watch (at that price) was necessary. I was making a lot of sense kan.. But, I didn’t know how could I come up with ‘Okay lahhh, I’ll take that one’ to the salesman. ‘Arrghhhh… Am I really doing this? It’s so expensive. Okay, I still haven’t paid, not too late to cancel.’  But I just stood there, saying nothing. I only realised what was happening when the cashier gave me an exchange of RM1 of the amount paid for the apple watch. I FREAKING BOUGHT IT, WHYYYYYY! But you know, all the guilts and regret and torn-apart feeling faded away as soon as the salesman started unboxing the box. Owh…. Such beauty!! I’m never regretting this!

No more guilts! Nervoussss

Sporty straps by Nike

Nike face layout. There are five options but they're very basic

Nike face layout. There are five options that you can choose from, apart from the other regular layouts .

Since it’s the special edition of Nike Apple Watch, I name it Nikki (duh!). The differences between Nike version and the regular ones are the unique straps and the face layout of the watch. The price is the same tho but there were not many Nike options left at that time. It’s okay, I don’t want black+volt anyway. I prefer the light lavender+white version because it’s more feminine. As for the size, I chose 38 mm rather than 42 mm due to the cutest wrist I have heheh.

Since the straps are limited edition (you can’t buy them separately, only come with the watch), I would be pretty devastated if I somehow ruin it. You know how careless I am right? I might make it dirty, stain it with marker pens or anything etc. The possibilities are endless. So I decided to buy another regular straps then I could keep the original one in the box, safe and pretty. Smart girl, I am! LOL

The straps I bought online from the Apple Store website. Guess, what colour I chose?

The Winchester, R. In The House

I figure you should look at this post first, to see how eager I was to get this phone.

Here I am, introducing the new toy of mine, ROSIE WINCHESTER!
The name couldn’t get any more obvious right? 😛

New girl in the house yaaall!

The latest Winchester in the family.

I’ve been meaning to get a new iPhone since I felt like my iPhone5S, which I name her, Goldie Winchester, kept running out of space for anything. Of course it kept running out of space, it was only 16GB. I don’t know what can you do with that little amount of hard disk nowadays. I was so annoyed every time I had to choose which photos stay in my phone and which photos going to trash. I mean, if you’re not really into taking pictures and selfies, that’s probably okay but I take pictures of everything, so having a small GB like that really frustrated me. Same applied for mp3s. Why couldn’t I have them all in my phone? That’s a question with an obvious answer, right? Well, that’s actually my main issue, other than that, Goldie was working tremendously fine (never mind the battery power, that’s an issue for every smart phone).

So, while I was just weighing my options whether or not to get an iPhone6, Apple announced that they would be introducing a new colour for iPhone6S and iPhone 6 Plus S batch, which is the ROSE GOLD. I couldn’t get more excited hearing the news. ROSE GOLD, that is such an elegant colour and not too girlish I would say. I was like, ‘I have to get one of those! I HAVE TO!’‘ I took it as a sign from the universe, that it was time for me to get a new Apple gadget haha. After all, besides the awesome colour (it’s not good tho buying a gadget based on the colour, but I’m a girl, so it’s forgiven), I was really really in a need for a new iPhone. This time, with BIGGER GB!!

I almost held myself back from buying it due to the ridiculous price range of the new iPhone batch that had been circulating around in the social media. It was so high that I thought I could only drool on it. But you know, when I want something, I want something. It’s called determination (hubs calls it stubborn tho lols).
Thank God when it’s officially launched in Malaysia, the price is not as ridiculous as what had been spread around. I get why some say the new iPhone is overpriced, but blame it on our currency, because Apple’s price range in Malaysia is based on our currency.

Okay, back to Rosie. I can’t compare iPhone6 and iPhone6S because I don’t own iPhone6 so I don’t really know if it’s much different or just more less the same, but an iPhone 5S to iPhone6S? It’s sure a lot. In iPhone 6S, I love how your still photos are no longer still, they’re alive with the sound and movement of 1 second before and 1 second after the camera click, I love how you can use ‘Hey Siri’ without plugging it to the power even when it is locked, I love how you can fully view your emails and messages in iMessages before even opening them, I love that you can use flash when you take a selfie using the front camera, I love the use of light press and hard press to make your still photos dance..
OWH I LOVE THEM ALL!

UNBOXING!

UNBOXING!

Look at that face!

Look at that face! Lols

Here we go, almost mine!

Wooooot!

Wooooot! Look at that big grin!

As obvious as it is, I’m in love with Rosie. I’m so in love with her that I rarely hold her in my hands due to this fear I have, of hurting (dropping) her. God knows how terrified I am if I ever hurt her (right now especially when she’s just four days old). That’s why when I still had Goldie, I used her for my social media updates, and only used Rosie for Whatsapp purposes. Plus, I banned hubs from touching Rosie. If he ever checked on Rosie, I would be close by monitoring him until he got sick of my behaviour and handed Rosie back to me. Hahah freak gilleeer!

Anyway, Goldie’s now happy with her new owner now.

Farewell, Goldie. You be good! Thanks for bearing with my ups and downs for these two years.. Now go and do good to other people okay.. Love you!

This is probably an old story and some of you have already known it. But what the heck, I’m telling it again now. Somewhere in March this year, I’ve posted on my Facebook about the death of my iPhone5 that I’ve only used less than a year. It would be functioning well until now but due to my stupid carelessness, I’ve killed it. I’ve accidentally dropped it on my way home at Sabak night market. I wasn’t sure how, but I think it slipped through when I was putting it into my bag. Did track it and found it still at the scene. I was glad that no one took it yet, so we hurried back to the night market.

After a while looking for it, I found the iPhone IN THE BACK OF A BLACK HILUX. Know what? It was hidden there. I guess someone really wanted to take it but they put it there for a while and would come back for it. Thank God we were faster. The screen cracked so bad tho that I almost cried. It was beyond repair. It wasn’t just the screen, but the frame did bend too. Didn’t really know what to react. Sad, yeah but at the same time, I felt nervous? Does this mean a new iPhone? Owh my God! Less than a year!

My poor iPhone and the place we found it.

My poor iPhone and the place we found it. Puas hati jugak jumpa walaupun dlm keadaan mcm ni. Kalau hilang terus, lagi ralat kot..

I tried to be phoneless at least until the payday but who was I kidding? I couldn’t live without phones. It’s like living in a stone age. After trying to make sense to hubs that it was impossible for me not to have phones, he finally allowed me to buy a new one. Mommy said the same thing too. So…. Here we go.

It’s been 4 months now. Please Emy don’t be stupid again. Or you can be stupid, but don’t let your stupidity cost anymore money.
So there. That’s how it happened.

Next, I wanna promote to you guys, these few instashops that sell beautiful cute funky macbook accessories. I’ve been a customer to both Lagendas and TrueJannah. I like them both, but cards on the table, I slightly prefer TrueJannah rather than Lagendas because they also sell these cute funky sleeves for laptops, that are not necessarily for MacBooks only, but also laptops that are the same size as MacBooks 11″, 13″ and 15″. But really, both offer very friendly and quick service. You can just practically close your eyes and go with either one.

Once You Go Mac, You’ll Never Go Back

IMG_2412

Yes, Pengkek. I’m quoting you.

Finally! I finally welcome home this new gadget of mine, Macbook Air 13″!

So after about a year of eyeing on this thing, I finally have my first Mac, which is also my third Apple after the iPadmini and iPhone5. Despite it being the third, this is actually the first Apple product that I have admired, loooong before iPad/iPhone, but it turns out to be the last one bought after those two. Hehe. Simply because this costs the most money compared to iPad and iPhone so I had to do a lot of thinking to get this. Now that I have it, I gotta say that it’s worth every cent paid. Yes, really! Wee… I’m just so exciting and yes folks, I’m now on this new baby, blogging about it.

Actually, I already had a Sony Vaio S Series laptop that I ‘accidentally’ bought somewhere last year and I would say it’s still in a very good condition and working well. The problem was, husband and I kept fighting to use the same laptop (since his was broken and beyond repair). We had to take turns to use it. Then I thought it seemed like perfect timing for me to get a new laptop, a Mac to be exact, since I once said to my husband, ‘This Vaio will be the last Windows-operated laptop for me, next if I’m gonna buy a laptop again, it’ll be a Mac’. There you go. This is not a spontaneous decision. Unlike the Vaio, this is also not accidental.

We both went to Mac City last two weeks, just to do some survey about this cool thing, like the pricing, specs etc. When the salesman explained and did some demos about the cool features and tricks, I was like, ‘Eeiiiii nak beli jugak nak beli jugak!! It is so cool that it has lots of cool finger tricks on the touchpad, like you can change from one apps to the other apps just by swiping it left, right, up and down using three or two fingers, It works for someone who is soooo lazy, just like me. It’s very very light too (Do I even have to mention that? Haha).

At the checkout counter, one of the salesmen told me that I could download the new launched software that just came out on that very day, namely OSX Mavericks. The previous one was called OSX Mountain Lion. I couldn’t really do the comparison between the two because I have never used Mountain Lion (maybe I have but just for couple hours before I downloaded Mavericks), and I’m also very new to Mavericks. So if I’m going to have to say anything about them, it’s going to be quite unfair. Haha. But one very very fair thing to say is, THIS MACBOOK IS SOO COOLLLL! Yes, with the caps on, I’m like, shouting!

The new Mavericks!

I bought this together with the Apple Care Protection Plan, which is actually an extension of warranty (3 years instead of a year), as well as the Apple Superdrive (external CD slot). Owh, and also the keyboard clear skin. Owh, another one. The Speck SeeTrue Raspberry Case, this is the most important accessory!

So, these are the damages done.. Lovely damages I would say haha

I still haven’t finished exploring yet. Thanks to Mr.Google and Mr.Youtube, you guys such a big help! This is not even half of the advantages offered, but I just have to pen off now. Will blog more about it soon!
