"Peer-pressured" into Instagram XD

Instagram

3534983570.JPG

LOL~

First and foremost must post the badge right?!! Self-promote!! But there's only 1 post for now! LOL

Well... it is not really from peers that I felt the "pressure" to sign up for an account with Instagram, coz I am rather happy, VERY HAPPY with Pick! It's kinda similar to Instagram but with better features and accessibility. For all that I am aware, (I am still noob at Instagraming) I can't post my pictures (umm... you know? after I have it photo-shopped?) and I am kinda... disappointed. Then, initially when I tried to use the app.. it seems that the options for editing the pics are quite little... or maybe coz I am using an android phone? Not sure.. But if it wasn't for the fact that I really wanted to:

1. Follow / Stalk my favourite beauty gurus
2. Take part in contests/giveaways
3. For the joy of interacting with potential readers of my blog/YT channel viewers

I would not have joined.

But then again, I had... so I shall work on getting more posts on it.

I will most likely repost my Pick posts into Instagram as Pick provides great filters and stamps and bla bla bla.

It also allows me to post via web browser login / Android app / Apple Store app

and I bet at this point you have noticed how my Pick Page's background looks sooooooo pretty right?

See!!! You can customise how you want it to appear on web, outside of browser, it can still look good! In face, they provide you with template background to choose from. If you already have a LINE account or Naver account, or you could even choose to create an account via Facebook or twitter login. All posts could be crossed post to Facebook, Twitter, Weibo, Sinablog.

So if you visit me at http://pick.naver.jp/fsrain, this is what you'll see on the landing page:

 

pick,instagram alternative,photo editing,naver,line,photo app

 

and this is how my profile looks like:

pick,Instagram,FSRain,FS.Rain,Blogger,Beauty,Makeup Enthusiast

I don't care what you think of Instagram la, I really like how Pick is and I think you really should try it too!!!

hahaha.. somehow this post ended up not talking much about my instagram account... anyways, to find out more, just check me out on Instagram loh.

Till the next time... (gonna be very soon)

See ya around~

 

Cheerios,
FS.Rain

Getting Busy Online~

As always, Time flies and almost unsurprisingly, I am entering a new decade of my Life... the year that I will get a chance to change / update my identity card as current one was issued in the year 1996.... I am among the last batch of citizens who get to receive their ID cards when they hit 12 years old. YES, do you maths and you can find out my age. XD

With this new year, I am looking forward to some sort of stability in my relationship and ultimately, embarking on a journey in my career and interests. 

That was why I  have been rather busy recently dealing with all these:

  • Setting up a Google+ Page & Site that supports my professional development in HR.L&D
  • Updating my blogs on Tech gadgets + Makeup, filming of videos for YouTube channel for gadgets and beauty
  • Scheduling an event and tapping onto Google Forms, to recruit volunteers to assist me in my personal interests (i.e. Makeup!!)
  • Job search and refining CV and LinkedIn profile
  • Subscription to the Adult Education Network under IAL
  • Continuing my further studies - already undergoing my masters degree programme

I am rather pleased with what I have accomplished during the past 3 months and I really hope that 2014 shall be a fruitful year in terms of career, learning, and pursue of interests.

If you are missing me already, come on! Find me on my social media platforms and interact with me there! I am sure it is not that difficult as I have left some footprints here that should lead you on~

Despite the downs that took place in 2013 and the years before, I am very grateful for what I have learned, experience and knowledge gained, the mistakes that were made, the frustrations that I have to go through... all these made me the person that I am. 

As I always reminded myself.. let me repeat it again:

"Happiness is a Choice that can be made"

"知足常樂 笑口常開"

Stay positive and always look out for the something that brightens your day.

I love rainy days for the peaceful ambiance and the cooling weather, yet I always prefer the Shinning Sun that brightens up world infront of me.

Let's work hard and work smart as we paved our life during this limited time. 

Let's enjoy the simple pleasures in life as we tackle our way through the obstacles laid ahead.

May peace and happiness be within reach.

May smiles and laughter accompany us.

I can continue rambling these nonsensical nothings.. but I think my lids are getting heavy..

We shall talk again~

BlogSpirit's got an Android App Finally!

Wow~ how can I not be surprised?
Initially I was rather upset that blogspirit has gotten an app for iphone. . That was like earlier this year when I was looking high & low for blogging-on-the-go tools.

Finallt it is making its entrance into Google Play! If only this could come in earliet, I might have thought of paying for the service of more blogging space in Blogspirit.

I love Google products but I never created my blog under Blogspot coz I felt that there's just too many ppl using it. xp

Before I came found BlogSpirit, I was using tripod and dreambook if I'm not wrong. Somehow, Blogspirit sounded better, sounds like the Spirit of Blogging and I moved my previous personal website cum blog over here.

Around the end of last year, my passion for beauty n health stuff went blazing and I enjoyed sharing great finds with people whom I interact online and in real life. Blogging seems to allow me to pen my finds, share with more people and illustrate better with visuals.

At that point, I have 3 blogs. Here, in BlogSpirit, 1 in Pixnet and Wretch. The last 2 were created initially to pen my thoughts in Chinese, my mother tongue language which I want to allow myself the chance and opportunity to always practise n be using. To be able to use this cultural language in expressing myself. Afterall, apart from using it among family and close friends, we don't usually use it for work and other day to day interactions as compared to Chinese who are living in China, Taiwan and perhaps Hongkong.

With considerations that I might not have much energy after work to be actively blogging, I thought that if there were apps that could be used for blogging-on-the-go would be great!

Sadly, I could only find apps in Google Play for WordPress and Blogspot and Pixnet. Hence I subscribed to a serviced blogging space with Pixnet to host all my reviews and pictures mainly health and beauty related at the moment. I need time to catch up with penning down the Food Finds, Travel Fun, Sights and activities which I experienced with my loved ones.

However, Pixnet has got its flaws in its apps. The picture uploading function is defunct. Despite sending many feedback to them, we don't see anything done to rectify. Hence I could only upliad my pictures into my blog via desktop and only to insert pictures into my posts on a desktop. I do appreciate the fact that I can still draft out my posts using the mobile app.. but it would be much better if photo uploading function works.

Reading so much of my blabber, have you managed to guess what I wanna share in this post? xp

Well, comparing to the Pixnet app, BlogSpirit app also has a picture posting option and sure as heck I'm gonna try that out!

If we get to see any picture within this post it means that it is working!
mobile_picture

Anyway, one more thing to share is that both Pixnet and BlogSpirit allows email-to-post function. This function allows the pictures emailed to the blog-posting url to be uploaded and inserted into the post. The only downside (seems to habe alot of down side with every feature...) is that you can't adjust or control the size of the photos in your blog post though.. well... better than nothing I guess..

okok, that's all my ramblings for today. Im happy that with my badly blocked nose I am still able to "ramble" with out using my mouth, which is currently serving as my "nose" for breathing, I am very grateful already.

yea yea~ time to blow my nose n attempt a normal breathing now. Talk again soon!!


PS: I'm giving BlogSpirit a HUGE THUMBS-UP!! I am able to upload and insert a photo into the post via the app!! I'm even able to define the size of the photo with choice of Small / Original / Customise! !!

PICK!! Instagram/Tumblr Alternative from Naver Japan

pick, naver japan, pick naver, tumblr, instagram, photo posting, social networking site, 

I stumbled upon this app in Google Play and simply downloaded it coz I just love the way LINE works, LINE camera is very fun too and now I saw Pick!

pick, naver japan, pick naver, tumblr, instagram, photo posting, social networking site,

It is very much like Instagram/Tumblr (according to many people coz I've used neither before), you post up photos with short comments, but EVEN BETTER!! You get to use over 500 stamps, frames, tools and settings to decorate your photos and express yourself! Make a Picture PAINT a thousand words, and that's what I think PICK actually does!

It's time for you to try it out! I've even went to it's browser page (http://pick.naver.jp/) and it kinda reminds me of Google+ page, which I'm already liking alot! The web browser page/app actually allows interactivity between users and the web browser page could be customised using the available "skins" / template designs or you can upload your own!

I have mine here: http://naver.jp/fsrain

pick, naver japan, pick naver, tumblr, instagram, photo posting, social networking site,

Leave a comment if you have anything to share with me on pick, or just anything else basically!!

Enjoy picking!!

New Camera Purchase!!

Originally Posted on: http://fsrain.pixnet.net/blog/post/37874129

Hi hi people!!

I know I know, I was kinda M.I.A (aka missing in action) for quite awhile overhere.. but what can I do? Being busy at work and in my personal life sometimes could be a good thing..

More or less this month's gonna be even more crazy at work and before I forget about my little blogSpirit, I wana make a print over here to say a "Hi/Hello!" to my quiet readers here!

Just earlier today I popped into my Gmarke|Qoo10 account to check on my review and couldn't help but searched for a Samsung Camera which I really wanted to have.. I found it and it was such a good price I couldn't resist!! To find out more about my purchase, follow the above link! I have also linked the product page if you also wish to get one for yourself!

So for now.. while I wait for mine to arrive, perhaps you could share with me what you have! I mean which camera are you using? How do you like it?

My old trusty camera is also from Samsung, very old model ES17, cost me SGD145 (with mini tripod, 8GB SDcard, lens cleaning kit, cover, rechargeable battery set) if I didn't remember wrong. Its using 2 double A batteries and had once fallen from 2nd Storey of a buidling but survived it till now.

It's really a great camera to have consider that it's very sturdy, fall-proof and battery can be bought from any stores. super convenient for travelling! 3x optical zoon, ISO1600 (light sensitivity if Im not mistaken), 12.2 megapixels with lots of shooting options, honestly, I am really satisfied with it!

samsung, camera, digital camera, qoo10, gmarket, online shopping, great deals, cheap buys, affordable camera,

 

Well.. if not for the fact that I am so tech-crazed (apart from makeup/beauty-crazed), so so excited and enthusiastic about the latest gadgets and stuff like that, I would just keep to my trusty old camera and along with my Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy S2 to capture all the beautiful shots and videos!

That's how I started getting "hooked" to the camera that has a front LCD where I can pose and shoot my self-portraits with instant preview of my shots!

Having said so much.. let's just wait till my new camera arrive!

I bet its gonna be one of my best gadgets for travel and capturing all the precious moments in life with my family and friends!

Check back again for my camera update!

My Ainol Novo 7 Aurora Tab is back!

http://fsrain.blogspirit.com/media/00/00/1085021086.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally my ainol novo 7 Aurora tab is back. Now with its cost hiked up by repair, total of SGD209 + 50,

its better last me till I get sufficient funds to get a Samsung Galaxy Tab2 or something even better! Hmph!

 

Quick specs for sharing:

- 7" Capacitative Screen

- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

- 1.0 GB Processor

- Built-in Memory 8GB (add $20 for 16GB)

- Front Camera (specs to be confirmed)

 

I actually got mine at 16GB initially from sim lim square. But there were startup issues and no stock to exchange, so I took a refund of 20 to receive a 8GB replacement.

 

It was all well till 1 day I wanted to bring it for Google Play to be installed and at the store it was found that my screen became damaged due to having been squashed by items in bag or pressed on.

 

Hence I'm sharing with all readers here, if you intend to spend less money for an okay tab that's light weight and convenient to bring around, this novo 7 Aurora by Ainol works.

 

However, HANDLE WITH CARE!!

 

Cheers,

FS.Rain

LINE App by Naver

I believe most iphone and Android users are not unfarmiliar with the cost saving app called Whatsapp.
Some might have also used this other app for quite some time.

So... what am I talking about??

It's none other than LINE by Naver!

SnzA8KIBoDiXOc0_HtPG2RrbIaJ6DZ5-Hafss7QArURUYkZyGh6uMwaVQ8vEKyk8bdrv=w124

They have even released the desktop versions for Mac & Windows, plus tablet version too!
Download it here!

-UiqrGPRejabLy5T8HBtwe7dsU1jLhGJDYCl0k84XfF7_qwXRZ3u_iYcRr3INaFXLw=w705


When you use it on phone, its tied to your phone number and detects/links your contacts (you've gotta add them manually/import it into LINE contact list).

i3btB8PxiQwGy_6Kw6z4z9pG0pvkjqc1QKvR0jcH9n0k64y9RUHNsCQlc5q6jEGpbFw BAz3oz4_XCEqlwAYgQf-rZDfaUJGH2BcbN3sjfcMen2NkUFwoAbaFwnBT2jVSYxY8w

I just downloaded it to my netbook and it looks similar to how MSN pops up, but the same interface as how it looks like on your phone! It can make calls, one-to-one chat & group chat!

958163138.jpg

2126254610.jpg

The same goes to the available stickers, emoticons and emoji! Which is my FAVOURITE feature of LINE!

Their selection of emoji, emoticons and specifically stickers are my FAVE!!!! SOOOOOooooooo CUTE! And many of the expressions and actions as portrayed by these emoticons/emoji/stickers are very much related to our daily life! Hence the ease of not using much words over a messenger, yet achieve the objective of sending the intended messages across.

I've captured some screenies of these cute stickers/emoticons/emoji below: 

1782374035.jpg
Conventional but pre-set facial expressions made of traditional symbols on keyboards!
3873757504.jpg
Super cute actions-represented stickers are found in this series!

1517297878.jpg
This white little guy series of stickers can simply get you bursting into laughter just by viewing it; you'll sure find 1 that's able to express how you feel, what you're doing or wana do from this series.

2189942743.jpg
This girly stickers also provide many actions / activities and expression for you to express yourself 

994533617.jpg
My favourite feature: Emojis that are SUPER CUTE!!

Tell me now, AREN'T YOU LIKING IT ALREADY?? Say yes!! I bet you do!! hahaha

*eh-hem* Too excited already~ XD

Get yours now!!! Start exressing what yourself with all these cute little emoji/stickers/kaoji now!
