Massive impact in a tiny sleek machine

Advertorial

YAY ME!! I got myself a new toy to play with and this time it's the HTC HD mini phone!



Got invited to the HTC HD mini event down at Ion, so there I went! I was most pleasantly surprised to find out that they were providing hair and make up for guests for a mini (pun intended) photoshoot!!

Being hiao, I immediately went for the empty hair styling hot seat!



Stylist was blow-drying my hair coz it's still a bit wet!







What better to do than to play with my new phone while getting hair done??

Took a few camwhoring shots and IT WAS AWESOME!!

At 5 mega pixels (auto focus! Widescreen Photo Capture!) all the photos taken turned out so nice! Stupid Blackberry's camera is just bloody 3.2mp. -_-



Me + mini


All my hair straightened! And then the hair stylist took quite some time to transform my boring tresses into a elaborate curls!



This is the make up counter...



Tadah!!!!!! Poofed up hair!
It's time for my photoshoot!!


(Don't ask me what's the pink rectangle in the photo for the life of me I can't figure it out!! I think my camera went siao. Or maybe the phone can chu power. Hadoken!)


They printed out the photos for us, magazine-styled, and here is mine!



How? Cover girl material or what?!



Reviewing the photo taken by the pros...



And take another with my camera!! Artsy boh!!




They also have many other HTC phones around to let the invited guests play with, including the mini!

On the outside, the HTC looks so boring being all black, but the inside will completely surprise you!!

It is BUMBLEBEE YELLOW!!!


How cute and happy-looking!! LOL

Now for a little more about the product...

The HTC HD mini is a fully touchscreen phone and I don't usually like touchscreen phones but it was intuitive and surprisingly enough it was a breeze typing on it!

The interface is great with a fully customizable home page where you can place your most commonly used applications.

Lightweight and tiny, but has everything you need in a smartphone! Besides all the usual stuff (like 3G, wifi, bluetooth etc), I also like it that the multimedia player includes an FM radio!! Now I don't have to have a radio to listen to Rozz's show!

Another thing that pleasantly surprised me was the Animated Weather Wallpaper.

Amazingly enough the phone detects the weather today and animates your phone accordingly! Damn chio lah!! It was cloudy so I had clouds float around the screen, telling me that it's 27 degrees! (Night time as I am writing this)

BEST OF ALL?




I found it fantastic that when I got the phone out of the box, all the most commonly used smartphone apps were already installed for me by some considerate geek from the HTC headquarters.

All you need is your sim card and you can tweet, fb, msn with friends etc all without waiting! Watch Youtube videos! And never get lost again with Google Maps!

I didn't have to muck around with finding the apps and installing them and rebooting my phone etc!

But if you DO want more apps, they are easy to find using Windows Marketplace for Mobile. Get as many as you want!



Yes... This is the star of this entry.
But if you think I'm done here you are wrong!


THE HTC HD MINI GETS A
COMPLETE MAKEOVER!!



Black? One tone? NO WAY!

If the inside of the phone is so customizable,
so must the outside, right??





First it gets Gmasked at the kiosk at the event...




And then it is now a DELICIOUS shade of pink

Random photos before I go go

Flying off to Tbilisi, Georgia in about an hour so I thought I'd post some photos before I go! Will be back on the 18th.

Camwhoring photos x 3:






Might have over-photoshopped this. LOL... But whatever lah!


RIPPLE'S WEDDING!

Attended my RVHS classmate Ripple's wedding! She's the third in our class to get married... I'm number 4 if I'm not wrong!





Ripple's chio gown with a mad long train!



The wedding was aviation-themed so we all got air tickets for our seating!



Mike and I. Everytime I spell that I feel like writing "Mike and Ike". WTF



My ticket!



Decorations were in tiffany blue :)



They gave us a feather pen and I was trying to camwhore with it but damn fail coz

1) The feather doesn't go with a human head and is indeed sticking out in an awkward position.

2) Lousy photographer obviously used finger to cover part of lens

3) Kena photobombed by chao angmoh in background. TENSO!



Exclassmates Peiying + Jizhang



Look at this crazy humongous "cake" that the bridal couple DIY-ed! Madness!



Ripple must have painted on the pearls... She's always been crazy good at art!






Only managed to snap one lousy photo of the couple watching down the aisle... Note to self: Walk down aisle VERY VERY slowly





Ripple's second outfit + little luggage!



Our table... These photos are so pointless lah everyone's head so small!



Eekean acting cute




Gillian and I playing with the stickers that we got from the Cupid event some time ago... She's a skincare junkie (she really is, she like brought her 48 step skin care regime to fucking Dayang Island where the toilets don't have a heater or even goddamn lights) while I am a botox addict!

On a side note I was using this photo as a twitter profile picture some time ago. My mom saw the thumbnail and she didn't know how to enlarge it so for the longest time she was wondering what that was on my nose and she said I look like Mickey Mouse. LOL!!



Picture taken during the breakdancing episode of Guide to Life!

I was trying to be sporty ok I'm not normally so act cute!


Visit to the IR


Went with Ming + his friends to Resort World... We ate at:





My cod fish... Ok only... Not terrible but nothing on Forlino



The boys ordering

Went to relax at Ming's room at Hard Rock Hotel... It's nice there!



Sheena posing while watching TV




* END RANDOM PHOTOS *

In case you don't have Twitter or are not following me there for whatever retarded reason, I can finally say why I went to San Francisco!!!

It is because I am one of the 15 very privileged Super Bloggers/Vloggers WORLDWIDE who were chosen to visit PIXAR STUDIOS in Emeryville, San Francisco!

Is it cool or what!! Pixar is very very exclusive and doesn't usually get visitors!

We watched Toy Story 3 - a roughly 98% finished version - 2 months before everyone else can!

Director Lee Unkrich (who is so nice and funny btw) informed us that just a few nights before us Tom Hanks and Tim Allen (voices of Woody and Buzz respectively) also watched the same version!

It was so freaking awesome - even better than TS 1 and TS 2 - which is really amazing coz I LOVE both!

So obviously I took LOTS-O (heh heh heh if you are TS fan you will know) photos but they are not edited yet. When I come back I will publish them, so stay tuned!!

Don't switch blogs! Mine is the best! Lalalala!



Camwhoring shot as dessert. Bam. Yet another fab blog entry. TYTYTY
