Goodreads Reading Challenge 2013


It’s on! Goodreads FTW!

I love reading. But, how good a reader am I? If we measure it by the number of titles I read last year, the answer varies depending on who you are.

Srly, Dian?


Swapnote Me Maybe

Excuse me for this one post please. I know not all of you own Nintendo 3DS, and this video might confuse you. But for 3DS owners, this could feel like an epic video. Seriously. It’s an honest 3DS review presented in catchy tunes of Carly Rae Jepsen’s popular song Call Me Maybe.

If you happen to own a 3DS, jump right to the video, listen to the lyrics, and you’ll see that we can very much relate to it. ^.^

Thank you, Ellie Rae Wolf, Tyeforce and StreetPass Arizona. You guys made my day!

Let’s watch it! Sing with me!

An Introduction to Morning Pages

Recently I had an odd encounter with a long-time-forgotten habit that I thought I should not have done any longer.

Lemme share it with you.



If you are new to Islam, or if you know someone who recently accepts Islam as their religion, here is Welcome to Islam: A Step-by-Step Guide for New Muslims written by Mustafa Amar. It is a really nice, sophisticated guidebook written in English. You will find inside such helpful information as prayer motions, dress code, food you must not eat, challenges you might meet in your journey as a new Muslim and more.

Best thing about the book? You can read the full version for free online. ^.^ Good luck!

Learn to Write by Never Leaving Your Notebook

One thing I learn from being a journalist is what I believe every writer and blogger should also learn: Keeping a notebook. At. All. Times.



All I Want is U, WiiU


U are my first next-gen console, WiiU! But I will just patiently wait for the white 32GB one. ^.^


My Favorite Bookmark



First attempt on blogging via Xperia Play. Not as convenient as typing on Macbook, but I might need this mobile app in the future. ^.^

Ah, apparently I need to turn off the flash.


Smartphone Mobile Apps I am Dying to See on the Marketplace

Yea. Rite.

As the owner of an iPod touch (iOS), a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (Android), a Lumia 800 (Windows Phone) and a Gemini (Blackberry), I have downloaded hundreds of mobile apps. A lot more are offered on App Store, Android Market (now part of Google Play), Windows Phone Marketplace and Blackberry App World. These following apps, however, are the ones I never found there, yet in fact the ones I need the most.

Here they are!
