One Afternoon in Harbor Square

Posted on 20 January 2015 by Flisha

I forgot to mention one other thing I love about my new phone’s camera. It smoothens out my skin tone automatically!! Hahah!!

I do not really look as young as I do in the photos below. My skin is not really that blemish free. But my phone manages to convince me otherwise!

Selfie pa more!!! LOL.

Selfies aside, this was really a beautiful day in Harbor Square. It was overcast and December, we sipped Starbucks while enjoying the view, wondering who owned these yatchs… and wishing we owned one too. Someday surely!!

Happy New Year!

Posted on 20 January 2015 by Flisha

Over the holidays I got myself a Samsung Note 4. And WOW. Best phone ever!

What can I say? It was an impulse buy. Totally out of nowhere. First week of December, I just got my 13th month bonus, it was midnight madness at the mall, there was a buy-now-pay-later scheme going on and I was browsing the latest phones at Abenson. I saw this gorgeous looking phone. Large sized for a phone. I thought, hey I could totally play games on it! Hahah. Then I thought, I can finally use Google Maps when I travel (because, GPS). And the display was really bright and clear!

So I got it. Gave my credit card and left the store 15 minutes later with a brand new phone that I really didn’t need because I still have my trusty Blackberry Bold. God help me and my impulse buying!

Anyway, cut to now. I can hardly go anywhere without that phone. I love it so much! Haha!

I use it to play my games primarily. I play Simpsons Tapped Out, Hay Day, Family Guy, Clash of Clans and Dragonvale. I’ve gotten to be such an addict, I am so ashamed!! I have spent so much on Tapped Out for the premium items. LOL. Again with the spending, missy!!!

Apart from it I love all these travel and leisure apps. I have so many but my favorite are Google Maps (of course!), GrabTaxi, Zomato, Trip Advisor, Foursquare and Spotify, to name a few. And the social media apps! I finally have an Instagram account. Haha!

But best thing about my phone is the camera! I haven’t really blogged much in so long since I don’t like lugging around my heavy camera everywhere I go. So whenever I go to restaurants or on trips or reunions, I don’t have any pictures. What a thing for me to discover that this phone has the best camera I have ever used! It takes night photos like a pro and so fast too. You just literally point and shoot and it’s captured the moon. No waiting and holding your breath or anything like that. Good heavens. Love it. Love living in our technological era!

Here are some random photos I’ve taken the past month. Maybe the best thing that came out of getting this phone is that I may be blogging a bit more than these last few years. Fingers crossed! :-)

Finally got to visit Makati’s newest mall – Century Mall! I liked the dancing lights very much.

See? My phone takes night shots really well! I only had to focus and shoot this, though I did have many takes since some were blurry (shaky hands). Lovely shot of the moon that my old DSLR could not take in the same circumstances (without tripod/long exposure).

Another night shot. This time in HDR. Can you believe my phone can capture in HDR automatically? Haha! It still amazes me. This is my view every night from my apartment. :-)

Bonus shot! Just me and Snowy saying hello everyone and Happy 2015!! :)

Christmas Gift for BF

Posted on 20 January 2015 by Flisha

For Christmas, I got my boyfriend a pair of headphones. This was *his* idea, therefore making it the best gift ever. :)

If left to my own devices, I would not know what to buy him. I would probably buy a shirt or a watch. Or after shave (found it here). Does that sound like I do not understand my own boyfriend? Hahaha! One time I bought him a set of men’s facial cleansing products. I thought he might like it! Needless to say it’s still gathering dust 2 years later. Heh.

It’s very difficult thinking up gifts for men. Whenever we go shopping he never shows any interest in any shops, unless it’s a watch shop, so.

This Christmas I asked him specifically to tell me what he wanted. Really wanted. And he wanted these headphones. So we went to a music shop in Glorietta and got him these babies. Happy boyfriend, happy me!
