Review: Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 WiFi (SM-T700)

I have been hunting around the market for a suitable tablet to replace my ageing ASUS Transformer TF201. Initially, I was quite drawn to the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro. But after see news leakage on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, I decided to hold my purchase and wait for its release. There is a steep discount going on for the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro now. On paper, it seemed that this tablet would the one that I have been waiting for. Finally, when the Samsung Galaxy Tab S was released in Singapore on 12 July 2014, I decided to drop by the stores to check out ASAP since I just arrived back from my enjoyable Adelaide trip with Annabelle & Ashley. Stay tuned for that post soon!

Samsung Galaxy Tab S

My first impression.. woah! I was totally blown off by the colours produced by the Super AMOLED screen. Next, I was scanning at the thickness of this tablet versus the ones displayed beside in the showroom. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S was indeed slimmer even when comparing to the already very slim iPad Mini. It was a mere 6.6mm thick! I was pretty much torn between selecting the Samsung Galaxy Tab S and the iPad Mini Retina before looking at the actual product. Now, the decision is simple. I have decided to go for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S!

Ashley’s Photoshoot with StudioPlay

It’s been a pretty long while since I have time to sit down to write a blog post. So, here are the long-awaited photos Ashley took with StudioPlay when she was 7 months old (so yes indeed, these photos are dated almost 9 months back!). Ever since I was pregnant with Ashley, I was always having fun browsing through photos of my friends’ babies on Facebook and yes, StudioPlay was one baby photo studio that I set my mind on when I was like 6-7 months preggie. I was amazed by the pretty baby photos done by StudioPlay and their cute props in their studio that I wasted no time in signing up with them at the baby fair. So here are some of my favorite shots of Ashley and our family photo done by StudioPlay.

Review: Anker® 40W 5-Port USB Charger with PowerIQ™ Technology

I have been looking around the market for quite a long while to hunt for a quality-built USB charger, so that I can consolidate my exponentially growing electronic devices into a “charging corner”. Finally, Anker has come out with a 5-port 40W USB charger! This means that you could charge your devices up to 8Amps in total on the 5 ports provided. In layman terms, it means you are able to charge 3 tablets (2Amps each) and 2 phones (1Amp each) simultaneously!

Next, it comes my concern for the size of the charger. Not only do I want this charger to work at home, I want to bring it around when I travel especially to places where power sockets are hard to come by. Well, it is the same size of a credit card and about 2.5cm thick. What more can I ask for?

Singapore Airshow 2014

This year round, I managed to visit the Singapore Airshow 2014 on the 3rd day of the trade show. As per the past few exhibitions, it was held at the usual Changi Exhibition Centre (CEC). Getting there is pretty simple via the shuttle bus service at $8 per trip.

This time, I am equipped with my new Canon 70D. Being a novice photographer, catching nice pictures during the aerial display is definitely a challenge! There were a total of 4 different displays for the day: Singapore’s Air Force Black Knights, Yakovlev Yak-130, South Korea’s Black Eagles and Indonesia’s Jupiter Aerobatic Team.
