Beats Pill 2.0 For That Eargasmic Sensation

Some say that music is the language of emotions; A lingua franca that can allow us to express ourselves without holding back anything. That is why we  need to be able to enjoy our music without any restrictions at all. Introducing Beats Pill 2.0 which has been dubbed as the best portable speaker for iPhone. I am not surprised because Beats Pill 2.0 certainly has the form factor that matches the flair of iPhone's aesthetic designs. This pill-shaped (Duh! Obviously) portable speaker from Beats comes in four different colours namely blue, red, black and white. Personally I think the red one will get my vote! :)

Absolute beauty.

Upon unpacking your Beats Pill 2.0, you will immediately see its distinctive Beats logo blazed on the front central strip of the speaker. The Beats logo itself serves as a play/pause button for you to enjoy your music. Here's the simple trick: Tap the Beats logo twice and you will skip forward to the next track; Likewise tapping it thrice will skip 1 track backward. Pretty intuitive if you ask me. This simplistic design intends to make this portable speaker a joy not only for our ears but also our eyes.

Frontal view.

A full-USB port that can even be used to charge your phone.

Buttons and ports integrated sleekly.

Turn the Pill around and you will be greeted by a power button, volume up and down, microUSB charging port, audio input and output, a NFC tag for automatic wireless pairing with your smartphones and a full-fledged 2.1amp USB port to charge to your drained smartphone when you need some extra juice. Moreover do you know that the NFC tag actually allows you to connect two Pill 2.0 speakers? Sounds like this Pill comes with quite an array of features to make it more usable and attractive huh.

This Black Beats Pill 2.0 is equally stunning as well huh!

Despite being lightweight, this portable Beats Pill 2.0 is really packed with powerful sound that will give your ear drums that insatiable eargasmic sensation. With this pill, you can enjoy thumping highs and deep booming bass thanks to its wide-firing four-speaker stereo arrangement. You can easily pair the Beats Pill to your iPhone, laptop or any Bluetooth-enabled devices to change tracks and adjust volume from as far as 30 feet away. Now that's really far huh.

And I really love this Beats Pill Dude!

OMG! With so many tricks up its sleeve, Beats Pill 2.0 is definitely the portable speaker  that I am drooling to have. No wonder there are so many portable speakers review about it. I can't wait to have this Beats Pill 2.0 as my Christmas present (Santa~please take note). Imagine this beautiful, cylindrical Pill belting out your favourite Christmas tunes in a crystal clear sound. Arrr...but wait...with its premium sound and features, you will need to pay a relatively premium price as well. Are you ready to fork out US$199.00 for Beats Pill 2.0 for this Christmas? I wonder what's the price tag of the Beats Dude. Ha :D

Adele Says Hello By Breaking Records

Adele has returned to say hello and what a HELLO she has delivered huh! Four years ago, I got to know her haunting voice through Rolling In The Deep. Back then we witnessed how her powerful vocal and range of tones have shook the music industry. After that she has settled down and has become a mother during her absence. Fast forward October 2015 and the Queen of Voice is again reverberating our radio stations with her melodiously eerie Hello. So yeah~Hie! And welcome back Adele. :)

 photo 04 Adele Says Hello By Breaking Records_zpstklcfbfg.png

"Hello" is co-written by Adele and her producer, Greg Kurstin and it's a piano ballad which soulfully enveloping both the raw emotions of nostalgia and remorse. Now how many singers (real singers) can actually sing with just the piano alone? So good is Hello that it becomes the number 1# hit in 28 countries and recorded the biggest opening week sales since 2012. Hello has gone one step further to break several records which includes the first song with over 1 million digital sales in one week alone. Hello! Who says piracy has taken away singers' hardwork? Then again you have to be a (real) good singer to achieve all these amazing feats.

 photo 01 Adele Says Hello By Breaking Records_zps0klrx1cp.jpg
Hello from the other side.

The simple MTV that was produced to accompany Hello has been equally impressive in garnering views. Hello shattered Vevo Record with a whopping 27.7 million views within 24 hours. Taylor Swift's fancy Bad Blood held the previous record with 20.1 million views within the same span of time. Besides, Adele's Hello also became the fastest MTV to hit the 100 million views milestone which was previously held by Miley Cyrus's Wrecking Ball. So what do all these tell you? FACT 1#: You don't have to have a lot of girls with leather-tight suits shooting around in your MTV. FACT 2#: You don't have to be a slut like Miley Cyrus to get attention and views on youtube. FACT 3#: It's all about being a real singer who can SING whimsically. Hello?

 photo 02 Adele Says Hello By Breaking Records_zpspgkhbfrr.jpg
I must have called a thousand times...

It was obvious that Hello revolves around the theme of regret and many see it as a sequel to her single "Someone Like You". Then again it is even deeper than Someone Like You. This somewhat conversational Hello talks about "failed relationships" which could have ranged from family members, friends and of course lovers. So basically Hello is about reminiscing about those who used to be in your lives. To people who had left footprints in your heart.

 photo giphy_zpsvkspa6kf.gif

Adele personally said this on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show: "I felt all of us were moving on, and it's not about ex-relationship, a love relationship, it's about my relationship  with everyone that I love. It's not that we have fallen out, we've all got our lives going on and I needed to write the song they would all hear it, because I'm not in touch with them." Well said Adele! I believe the whole song symbolizes how our lives have changed and how we have grown up. :)

Adele's "Hello" Lyrics

Hello, it's me
I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet
To go over everything
They say that time's supposed to heal ya, but I ain't done much healing

Hello, can you hear me?
I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free
I've forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet

There's such a difference between us
And a million miles

Hello from the other side
I must've called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart
But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart

Hello, how are you?
It's so typical of me to talk about myself, I'm sorry
I hope that you're well
Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happened?

It's no secret that the both of us
Are running out of time

So hello from the other side
I must've called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart
But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart
Anymore, ooooohh
Anymore, ooooohh
Anymore, ooooohh
Anymore, anymore

Hello from the other side
I must've called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart
But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart

Honestly I believe Adele's Hello is one heck of a good comeback song. The staggering 469,338,519 Youtube Views so far at the time of this writing (24th November 2015) is enough to tell you how successful Hello is. Goodness. So will this Hello surpasses Gangnam Style's current 2.5 billion youtube views? Ha :D Then again I really love this song because it makes me feel mortal. I can just lay down on my bed and listen to Hello again and again. It makes me ponder about all those people who used to be around when I was younger. Period.

P.S. : Hello to everyone as well from This is my first post after my 3 months of absence. :)

Samsung Galaxy Note 4-Still The Best Smartphone In 2015

I have always believed that Samsung Galaxy Note smartphones can be considered the best available smartphones in every of its iteration. That is why I humbly believe that Galaxy Note 4 is better than iPhone 6, iPhone 6Plus and even Samsung's very own latest flagships in the mould of the stunning Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. In fact I reckon that Galaxy Note 4 will still be better than the yet to be released Galaxy Note 5. Rumours have it that the SD card support and removable battery will be absent in the upcoming Galaxy Note 5, which if they are true would be a grave mistake by Samsung. That is why I believe Galaxy Note 4 is still the phone to beat in year 2015.

 photo 01 Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Best Smartphone 2015_zpspn7khmxq.jpg
Behold the beautiful Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Your very first glance at Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will immediately tell you that it is different from its predecessors. Galaxy Note 4 is not as "plasticky" as its previous forms. The main build material for Galaxy Note 4 is a combination of aluminium and magnesium which makes it the very first metallic Galaxy Note. However, Samsung has decided to keep the back of the phone plastic so that it is removable. In other words you can still change your battery once the juice has been drained. Secondly the inclusion of a textured plastic back allows Samsung to carve out its favourite leather pattern which provides better grip for users.

 photo 02 Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Best Smartphone 2015_zps2ww01dck.jpg
Eye Candy-QuadHD Super AMOLED Display

You will be happy to be greeted by Samsung Galaxy Note 4's impressive resolution of QuadHD 2560x1440 on the huge 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen which boasts an amazing 515ppi in pixel density. Be ready to immerse in the beautiful vivid display which offers crisp and vibrant colours that would certainly exhilarate your eyes. The outlandish viewing angles coupled with high outdoor visibility will surely make it pleasurable for one to use this Note 4. Bonus Tip: If you have trouble seeing the screen while you are outdoor, switch your Galaxy Note 4 to Auto-Brightness and voila the screen will be brightened to a maximum of 750 nits. This is higher than the manual setting. :)

 photo 05 Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Best Smartphone 2015_zpsgjgsjqv3.jpg
Galaxy Note 4 is a Multitasking King!

Despite the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, I honestly believe that Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is still one of the best smartphones available in terms of specs. Under the hood, Note 4 is powered by  2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor which is paired with an equally powerful Adredo 420 GPU and best of all you have a whopping 3GB of RAM to make sure everything goes flawlessly smooth without any hiccup. More importantly Note 4 comes with a gargantuan 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded with another enormous 128GB of SD card! This is what I call storage support!

 photo 07 Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Best Smartphone 2015_zpsslqzzggh.png
TouchWiz is lighter and more efficient.

It is great to know that Samsung has finally realized that they needed  to shake off all those unnecessary bloatware that most users won't use. Having said so, it is a joy to note that TouchWiz on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is lighter, friendlier and more efficient compared to its previous incarnations. Samsung has also managed to make its Multi Window feature more powerful allowing Note 4 to handle different tasks simultaneously more flawlessly. Another vast improvement is the One-handed Operation Mode. By "reducing the screen size", you can easily shrink the display to smaller screen which makes it possible for you to easily use it with just one hand. Genius!

 photo 03 Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Best Smartphone 2015_zpsbuwx4c5e.jpg
A better 16MP camera with OIS!

Samsung Galaxy Note 4's main camera is a 16MP sharpshooter that could do more that what we are expecting. It is the maiden Samsung flagship (except the Zoom series) to come with Optical Image Stabilization which makes photos to be sharper and more focused compared to its predecessors. This is surely a handy feature for those with shaky hands. Flip the Note 4 around and you will be welcomed by a 3.7MP Selfie Camera that offers f/1.9 aperture for better...well Selfies! Rest assured that you will have plenty of modes to toy around with and the two cameras on Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (rear and front) will surely suffice your needs to capture better photos for those wonderful memories of yours. :)

 photo 06 Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Best Smartphone 2015_zpswfezext1.jpg
The Mighty S Pen

The S Pen is arguably one of the most recognized features that is synonyms with the Galaxy Note flagships. What is a Note without its S Pen right? The S Pen can not only respond to 2000 different sensitivity in pressure, but also doubles up as a cursor and comes complete with a special action button that provides more additional features. This is one heck of a productivity tool that I truly want to have. In fact this S Pen alone can justify why you should fork out your hard-earned money for a new smartphone. Pull out the S Pen and the "Air Command" will pop up showing 4 functions that you could access to-Action Memo, Smart Select, Image Clip and Screen Write; all which I reckon will be useful to power users.

 photo 08 Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Best Smartphone 2015_zps0isid3dl.jpg
50% in 30 minutes.

Now you can charge your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 from zero to 50% in just 30 minutes! Another plus point about Samsung Galaxy Note 4, unlike the new Note 5 is the removable battery! YES! The battery on the Note 4 is removable which means you can easily switch the 3,220mAh battery when you run out of juice. This will certainly free you from the need to be plugged to a power socket and the hassle to lug around a power bank.

Do you Note?

Armed with almost all the relatively latest cutting edge technology, I strongly believe that Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will still be the best smartphone to beat this year. The availability of SD card support which is allows you to have another whopping 128GB and the removable battery make Galaxy Note 4 a better smartphone compared to its new replacement-Note 5. Plus, it will be cheaper too once its new sibling is launched. Currently Galaxy Note 4 is still being priced at RM2,199 and I do hope it will drop soon. :)

I believe the design of Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is more beautiful. :)

SixPad comes with a recommended retail price of RM850 (US$299) which I believe is reasonable.

I Love Adidas Because Of Its 3 Stripes

I have always loved Adidas for it is a brand that has peculiarly enchanted me in ways I could not explain. However I would try to unravel the reasons why I am so in love with Adidas. Do you know which country Adidas belongs to? Yep~if you are a sports fan or not, most probably you have known that Adidas hails from Germany. In fact, the company that is synonymous with its unmistakable iconic three parallel bars is like a household names around the world right? It even produces toiletries for men. Ha :D

 photo 01 I Love Adidas Because Of Its 3 Stripes_zpsixbmyaxa.jpg
I love Adidas. :)

The brand Adidas was actually founded by Adolf "Adi" Dassler after the World War I. So the brand  name Adidas was in fact the name of the creator-ADI DASsler. See? The truth is, the company was originally founded between Adolf Dassler and his elder brother-Rudolf Dassler. However both of the siblings decided to go their separate ways after the World War II due to irreconcilable rift. What a pity thought. The elder brother formed his own company called Ruda-Rudolf Dassler which was later rebranded as Puma. Hmm...I didn't know this. You can read more about their stories here.

 photo 02 I Love Adidas Because Of Its 3 Stripes_zpsz270qwiz.jpg
The Three Stripes are ever-present. :D

 photo 03 I Love Adidas Because Of Its 3 Stripes_zpsejkmzoau.jpg
It's my preferred brand. :)

So now...why do I like Adidas so much? Honestly I believe the one reason why I love this brand so much is because of its famous 3 parallel bars or the Three Stripes. Yep~that's the reason why I love it so much. Then again maybe it is because the three stripes do have a symbolical meaning to it and I feel like I could associate the 3 stripes with my life. In other words Adidas and its 3 Stripes remind me of the 3 most important people in my life-my wifey and my 2 babies. It's like when I am playing football, basketball or jogging...I could feel that my wife and 2 babies are just beside me as well. So that's why I love Adidas. Haha :D

 photo 05 I Love Adidas Because Of Its 3 Stripes Family_zpsi4clvvog.jpg
My "Adidas". :p

I really consider myself to be a big fan of Adidas. In fact I will always try to buy Adidas brand sporting shoes if I can afford to. In fact, my basketball shoes, futsal shoes and even my running shoes (Adidas Soltect 2) are all of Adidas brand. Yay! That is why I can't wait for Manchester United's new official jersey to unveil-because Adidas will be the official new sponsor. Woohoo! :) So many of you actually love Adidas?

 photo 04 I Love Adidas Because Of Its 3 Stripes_zpsvefcky6d.jpg
This is what I wear. How about you?

Woman BLINDED By Her Cat's Licking!

Here is another reason why you should not keep a pet cat! Cat can actually indirectly BLIND you! Yes, the seemingly adorable feline can cause you to lose your eyesight. No...this is not a hoax. This is a true story about woman who has a cat as her pet and her cat had blinded her. Apparently, an Ohio woman has become blind in her left eye after her car licked her and transmitted an infection called Cat Scratch Disease (CSD). 

 photo 01 Woman Blinded By Her CATs Licking_zpsqqnsoucf.jpg
A cat can actually blind you!

Janese Walters initially reckoned that she had pink eye, but when she informed her doctors she has a pet cat, they immediately suspected that she was infected by Cat Scratch Disease. Doctor Kris Brickman from University of Toledo said, "Anything that is exposed to the car's mouth-including if you have have a little scratch that the cat licks-that's how you get CSD!" Of course, the so-called "cat-scratch" does not pose any risk to cats, but it can be harmful to humans.

 photo 03 Woman Blinded By Her CATs Licking_zps4eeqlndx.jpg
Think again: You still wanna let your cat to playfully bite you?

Here's a warning to all cat owners: Cat Scratch Disease (CSD) can affect the brain, eyes, heart or other internal organs. Then again, CSD does not usually cause serious complications. However those who are infected by the disease must seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Those whose immune systems are weakened are more susceptible to this blinding disease that cats can bring about. Now you know how scary a cat can be. :/

 photo 02 Woman Blinded By Her CATs Licking_zpssqnfd3bp.jpg
Still think cats are harmlessly adorable?

It is a fact that 40% of cats carry the bacteria that leads to CSD. Brickman also advised people not to let any cat lick their open wound and not to be bitten by any cat. Janese Walters was clueless about CSD before she was diagnosed with it. Now she hopes that her story can remind other cat owners to be more cautious with their pet cats. "You don't want to lose your eyesight," Janese said. Thank goodness...she has only lost one of her eyes. Prevention is better than cure right?

 photo 04 Woman Blinded By Her CATs Licking_zpsx7i4jdlk.png

P.S.: No disrespect to all cat lovers but this is another reason why I believe cats do not make good pets or companions. :/
