Conrad Reinvents the Classic Gin and Tonic

Sunday, 14 December 2014

a couple weeks back, i was introduced to conrad's contemporary twist of gin and tonic (20 SGD). seated at lobby lounge, bartender Leo from proof and company did his magic. briefly introducing the history of gin and tonic and subsequently matching artisanal tonics and botanicals to create our drinks.

there are two types of gin and tonic  modern and traditional. the modern consist of french gin, artisanal imperial tonic, lavender and orchids. while the traditional is a mix of london dry gin, artisanal bruma tonic, citrus and botanicals. both were served on a black stone tray adorned with a fresh orchid, stirred table side by a server. the whole conrad experience transport one to an era where indulgence and sophisticated elegance were a way of life. hashtag decadence. 

thanks for the lovely afternoon conrad singapore and nuffnang singapore. it was an eye opening experience and cheers to a new found love for gin and tonic! 


Samsung Galaxy Alpha

Saturday, 6 December 2014

last month i was pretty blessed and honestly thrilled to receive my first samsung galaxy alpha courtesy of zalora singapore and samsung. knowing my favourite metal, they gave me the frosted gold version. the collaboration was timely too, as it came in extra handy since i'm currently handling a couple of instagram accounts. 

highlighting two key specifications  firstly the galaxy alpha 4G+ gives you 4G+ LTE Cat 6 capability at 3X the speed of LTE Cat 3, which means incredibly fast browsing and downloading.

second, the fingerprint security allows you to hide your personal files with a swipe of your finger. i think this feature is really convenient to have, i mean we all have moments and pictures we would like to keep private. or perhaps in a more serious note, we have business plans and ideas that we would not want any accessibility by others.

the phone is extremely slender (6.7mm thin) and it is the slimmest galaxy till date. the slim and compact design slips into pockets and slim clutches — it is effortless and does not create a nasty phone bulge.

one of my favourite feature is the ultra power saving mode. it minimises battery consumption by shutting down all unnecessary features, allowing extended battery life — so frugal and life saving. it might actually save you a lot of trouble finding power sockets while you are on the run. 

putting the galaxy alpha 4G+'s 12MP advance camera to use — we tried the selective focus which creates a depth of field effect and the photo quality is amazing. now this kinda makes me wonder if there is really a need for me to lug my DSLR around anymore. other camera features include the beauty mode, fast autofocus and real time HDR.

the samsung galaxy alpha also checks and monitors the heart or stress rate using an embedded sensor, something i check occasionally out of curiosity. i personally find the frosted gold is a rather versatile and chic metal. this light pink satin midi skirt from river island complements the phone nicely. huge thank you again to zalora singapore and samsung for the phone and new experiences!

The Zalora Pop Up Store

Monday, 3 November 2014

zalora recently opened their digital interactive flagship store at ion orchard, taking online shopping experience offline. the shopping experience in zalora is quite different unlike the usual physical stores. the products in-store are curated and customers can pick out the items they want to try on, with samsung as their tech support, customers can purchase using the computers or the samsung galaxy tab provided. 

i think what really draws me into the whole concept is that i would be able to try on the clothes first before deciding if i should make a purchase. as fit and quality is very important to me, it is a plus point to know where my money is spent at. 


some event photos from my new samsung galaxy alpha 4G+ and awwsnaphotobooth. thank you again zalora for inviting us! the zalora shop at ion orchard is located at #b2 - 04/ 05. opens daily from 1000 to 2200, till the end of january 2015.
