MY TOP 5: Frequently use smartphone Apps

11 November 2016

Assalamualaikum

Hi guys, I am back with my 5 top  series. Today I want to share to you my 5 frequently used applications - excluding social media - on my smartphone. Everyone knows smartphone is like one the an essentials in our daily life. We use smartphone to connect with our friends, family and people all over the world.

Right now I'm just using an Android phone. Personally, I prefer to use Android rather than IOS because it's user friendly and it's cheaper - I'm just a broke university student *sobs


1. VSCO Cam
I know lots of people already use this filter app because it's amazing! Although the filters are quite expensive, there are people who are willing to give out their emails and password for all paid filters. I'm one of those people who uses other people's paid filters. If you're interest in getting all the paid filters, there are many vscocam filters accounts on Instagram that will guide you on how to get all the paid filters. You can also set up your Instagram feed using these filters provided by the filter accounts to make your feed much better and nice looking.

2. UC Browser
As for browser, I'm using this particular browser because it's very light. Not in term of storage, but whenever I want to search for something, the page take a very short time to load compare to Google Chrome or Android Browser. They also have lots of features and add-on such as AdBlock, nigh mode and speed mode. Besides, it is very video and download friendly. Whenever you want to watch video, you can adjust the brightness and volume just by swiping up and down at the top and the bottom screen of your phone. It's really makes my watching videos a lot easier.

3. JOOX
For music, I much prefer Joox because I can sing along because it's providing lyrics for every song. Even for my imported songs, I can ask for the lyrics to be uploaded. For a broke student like me, the free VIP feature is very important. I can get one day  free VIP just by sharing the song to WeChat moment or Facebook wall. I am using my brother's old WeChat account just for this hehehehe

4. SuperNote
It's just your average notepad - nothing special for it but maybe it's special because you can choose to write or to type your note. Because of this feature I always draw doodle instead of writing something useful ._. It can change the color of my writing which I can use to differentiate the points of a note. I usually use this when there's motivational talks and I am too lazy to use on my notebook, or when I keep track of my manga reading. This way I won't read the same manga twice (unless I really like it)

5. SHAREit
The best way to share your files to other phones. I'm so glad this app exist because sharing video files with my friends can be quite painful when I use Bluetooth. This app make files sharing more easier and faster than Bluetooth.

That's all my frequently used applications. Mind to share what's yours? :)

I am going back to my uni tomorrow - so not looking forward for 5 hours train ride ;-; as semester break has come to an end. So maybe I'll set time for updating my blog such as 3 times a week or more (?) Maybe I'll think about it later. hehe until I write again.

Haul: Hermo mini haul

7 November 2016

Assalamualaikum

On 25th October I've placed my order at Hermo.my - it's kind of self-reward for me, because it has been a long time since I bought something other than books -_- Usually, I bought my skincare product from Watson, but since I have been watching Hermo (and all their promotions) for a long time, I decided to buy something from the website.

Fortunately for me, they were having clearance sale, which is a very amazing thing - sale is the only one thing that matters to student, am I right? Since I placed the order on 25th October and paid by online banking, I expected for them to ship the items the next day - since they said 1-3 days delivery. But unexpectedly, they shipped the items on 28th October and it was Friday. So I got to wait for another 2 days and finally I got them on Monday.

But that's all doesn't matter after I got my hands on these items. You don't have any idea how long they have been in my wishlist. I bought 2 things and since they said buy 2 free shipping, why not right? I intended to buy more, but when I think about 11.11 sale -and doubting whether they gonna be a sale or not - I decided to buy these 2 things first.

1. Nature Republic Soothing & Moisturizing  Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Mist 150ml

RM 31.90
RM 17.00 *exclusive of GST 6%

I bought this mist instead of gel because I already can imagine what I will feel if I put Aloe Vera gel on my face. My sister bought the gel one and believe me when I said I do not feel comfortable with it. Maybe some people prefer to use gel instead of mist, but everyone have their own choice, right?

Review:
The price is really affordable! I have no problem paying this because it works wonders! My skin is really dry - the kind of dry that flakes whenever I stay under the sun a little too long. Especially on the apples of my cheeks. I have been spraying this on my face ever since I got this whenever I feel my skin dry (which takes only a week) and now no more flakes on my the apples of my cheeks! Besides moisturizing your skin, it is also soothing and refreshing, which I really prefer after spending some time under the sun. Overall, it's really worth your money to try or to permanently use it. I will definitely repurchase this after I finish my first bottle.

2. Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder 5g


RM 25.00
RM 20.00 *exclusive of GST

Before that, please take a note that I have combination skin. As we all know, most of the times the T-Zone is oiler than the rest of the face, so I bought this because of that reason. When under the sun, the part of my face that's oiler than the others are my T-Zone and under my eyes.

Review:
I have used this once and mostly I stay in air-conditioned buildings, so I cannot say much about this product. But based on the users' reviews I've read and that one-timed application, I can say this is a great product as well because it keeps the oils at bay. The container is also small, which is easy to carry around. Since we, as Muslim have to take wudu' before praying, we can apply this powder after praying and gives a light finish overall. Maybe I will use this to go out to sweat instead of air-conditioned buildings and see the outcome.


Overall, I'll rate 9/10 for the products and the service. I will definitely repurchase from Hermo again sooner than later. For those who have not try purchase anything from Hermo yet, I recommend you to do so, Do not worry, they're very trusted seller and you can also read users review before buying anything to avoid from buying wrong products.

P/s: All those pictures above are mine and yes, I literally go out just to take those pictures (please don't judge)

VAMPIRE Someone offers you a chance at immortality. Do you take it, and why or why not?
Although I might regretting this, yes I'll take it. I know I'll probably get attached and then that person dies and then I'll live in misery, but that's one thing I'd like to try. I can always look for someone else, try new things and start a new chapter in life.

WEREWOLF If you had to spend your life with just one person, who would it be?
You may think I'm a brat, but I'm going to say my mum. I just can't life without her. Can you imagine when our house having a black out and the first person I'll search for is her? No matter how much I'll defy her, she's still my life. Love you, mum.

There are some things that are going to haunt me for life, but I just gotta move on. Everyone have some thing they wish they did not do.

FRANKENSTEIN Is someone telling you to live your life, or are you an independence person?
Actually, I need someone to tell me how to live my life. I always need someone to point me which direction to go because without them, I'll be lost. I'm the most inaptitude person you know.

I my not have any clique, squad, etc. but I know some people who will miss me if I were to fall into eternal sleep.

ZOMBIE Do you miss anyone right now?
I miss my grandparents right now. They're the sweetest couple I ever known. May Allah bless their souls.

FAERIE If you could get away with anything, what would you do?
Get into a plane and travel all over the world.

NYMPH What are you like when you're by yourself?
Quiet. I'll just do my things - read, write, draw etc. Sometimes talking to myself haha.

MERMAID How far do you go to keep the one you love?
I would like to think that we belong to ourselves. But in case someone were to take my family from me, I'd do anything within the law to get them back.

SHAPESHIFTER What would you change about yourself?
Some of my attitudes.

BANSHEE If you knew one of your loved ones/best friends had only one day left to live, how would you spend that last day with them?
I'll fulfill anything they want as much as I can.

SIREN If you could make anyone do anything, what would you make them do?
There are lots of things I can ask someone to do, but maybe buy me something (??)

GENIE If you had one wish that would come true, and can't be reversed, what would you ask for?
This is ridiculous but being rich without anyone knowing haha partly because I don't want people to rob me and another part so then I can live easily, providing to my family, doing charity without showing my wealth. 

FURY What is a word or a phrase that you dread to hear?
"You/Your friend/Your family if suffering from..." I can't handle bad news especially if I know my love ones suffered from something serious.

SUCCUBUS What's one thing you can't live without?
Money! Haha no one can live without money nowadays.
