Guess what new toy have I been given to play with recently?
. . . . . . .
It’s Nokia’s brand new gem, the Nokia x6 – comes with music!
Combining technology and creativity,Nokia x6 brings you the best of both worlds. Besides being a slick and smart touchscreen phone, this small power-packed device is your key to the big world of music out there.
Offering an outrageously appealing musical buffet, when you purchase the new Nokia x6, you have also purchasedunlimited access to over MILLIONS of tracks from the Nokia music store, all for free!
That’s right. FREE all-you-can-eat music buffet!
Forget about begging your friends to send you songs through bluetooth, or paying $1.99 to download just one track… Or even worse, risk getting caught downloading songs illegally!
Why bother, when Nokia x6 comes with unlimited music for your listening pleasure?
I say they’ve got the right idea. I love music, and I love the idea of having any song I want on my phone whenever, wherever.
I’m wearing the headphones that comes with the handset itself! Awesome surround-sound to block outside noise and heavy bass plus clear and crisp quality, to ensure a full on music blasting experience ♥
Oh and did I mention that to support this feature, the Nokia x6 comes with abuilt-in 32gb physical memory which can store up to11, 000 songs?
There’s more to this phone than its crazy musical buffet deal. The Nokia x6 offers different apps and games for you, allowing it to also be a social networking device!
Example of some of their cool apps?There’s a new Twitter app called “Gravity” that can be purchased from the OVI Store for S$14.99. Not only can you stalk your friends’ tweets but you can also check into your Foursquare account!
Other social networking sites such as Facebookis also easily accessed through your home page by a simple touch of the icon, to post status and pictures on-the-go!
With so much media packed inside this phone, it is only right that the display is an impressive 3.2″ widescreen.
Perfect for viewing photos and videos while you capture moments with its5 megapixels camera!
Courtesy of Nokia and Nuffnang, I was able to play with the new Nokia x6 and here’s my personal opinions, after having tested out the phone’s features for several days.
It is a full-touch screen phone, besides having the green and red call button at the bottom to pick up phone calls and to exit menu. The touchscreen feature is sensitive enough and easy to use, unlike most other touchscreen phones out there which are really troublesome because the censors get messed up and you end up pressing the wrong key on screen!
Since the display screen is an impressive 3.2″ inches, navigating and visuals are pleasing to the eye and user-friendly. Despite its boastful appearance, it is actually very light.
In conclusion, the Nokia x6 is a user-friendly touchscreen phone that is both fuss-free and fun to use.
It’s surprisingly trendy and affordable,making it most suitable for teenagers who want a cool touchscreen phone with all the necessary features such as GPS, Ovi application, store, unlimited music access, and more.
It also understands the importance of social platforms in our daily lives, so the easy access to Facebook and other apps incorporated into the Nokia x6 makes it really convenient.
Needless to say, my favourite thing about the Nokia x6 is that it allows my creativity to flow.
Music is my muse, and for fun, I was my very own “DJ” for a day, using their “DJ playlist” feature, I created different playlists based on my different moods and here’s how much fun I got up to!!!
Unlimited music access = unlimited personalities to go along with it! ♥
On some days, I like to dance and sing to the music till deep in the night - even though I can’t dance for nuts!
Song of choice : Tik Tok by Ke$ha!!!
“Wake up in the morning feeling like P.Diddy / Got my glasses on / I’m out the door / I’m gonna hit this city! “
. . . . . . . . .
And then there’s those days, the sort of lazy sunday when all I wanna do is frolick around with my boyfriend in casual clothing and listen to soothing music!
Choice of song : Sunday Morning by Maroon 5!
“Driving slow on Sunday Morning / now I never want to leave…”
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
And you know what?
On some days, I’M A FREAKING ROCKSTAR!!! YEAH BABY!!!!!
Or at least, I like to pretend that I am. Hoping my brother and mother cannot hear me singing / screaming at the top of my lungs from outside my room.
WOOHOO!!! So whaddya think? Me, the next Singapore Idol?
Choice of Song : Rock Star by Nickelback!!!
“I’m gonna trade this life for fortune and fame / I even cut my hair and changed my name…. Hey hey, I wanna be a ROCKSTAR!”
It’s that day of the week again where I do a weekly feature that can be requested by you guys!!!
Thanks for your suggestions last week, some of they were pretty cool but I don’t feel like blogging about my family right now as some have asked because I’m pissed off with them and today’s topic is actually suggested by my boyfriend!
And it issssssssss………
Ok, I know that Superpower Sunday sounds a lot better and less lame but I was feeling too upset yesterday to blog but I’m going to try and get it done today because I’m responsible like that!
. . . . . .
Superpowers -everybody secretly wishes they had one. Or a hundred. Or a billion!!!!!
If I had to choose only ONE superpower, I’d choose to be able to make anybody’s wishes come true (including mine) so I will not be limited to only one choice.
With that, I can grant eternal happiness, limitless fortune and great health.
Ok I know that’s not playing fair now, but a girl can dream…
People on my formspring have actually asked me what superpower I’ve always wanted to have as a kid and truth to be told, I didn’t only want superpowers as a kid, I STILL want them now.
. . . . . .
Let’s do a fun and random list of all the superpowers I’d kill to have….
Oh come on, EVERYBODY wants to be able to fly!!! People just love that sense of freedom, being able to take flight and go wherever your heart desires. It’s that weightlessness and purity that we all crave…
When I was younger, I used to have a lot of dreams about holding hands with my friends at the top of a hill, and we’d run soooo fast together and at the edge, we’d kick off and fly into the sky.
Lol I’m not kidding you!!!! How cute is that dream? I have SO many weird things going on in my head at night..
Well besides cute dreams of holding hands with kids, I remember this particular dream where this ghost was chasing after me down a super long HDB corridor at night and I couldn’t run at that time, but I was just learning to fly.
And obviously ghosts can fly faster and better than me because they’ve been doing it their whole afterlife, and eventually it started catching up with me and I was like GOD DAMN IT FLY FASTER ALREADY*stretches arms and legs out to increase speed… but nothing happens* and eventually the ghost did catch up but I woke up
I always dream of ghosts, or at least in the past. Obvious sign of an extremely disturbed child!!!
I realized that not much of me has changed 10 years later.
Instead of just dreaming about flying, I try to achieve my dreams in different ways… and even though I’m unable to magically levitate into the air, I can still go parasailing and hot air ballooning, which is so damn amazing
Every time I’m in the air, I immediately feel happy and detached in a way like I left my body and worries on the ground, this Jessica in the air is much more care free than the one on the ground.
If I really could feel, I would fly to extremely tall landmarks around the world and sit on the top, admiring the view…
I’d sit myself on the very top of the Eiffel tower, and the Golden Gate Bridge, and even go to outer space!!!!! And have chats with aliens. Lol who knows eh?
For somebody who loves flying, I really HATE flying in aeroplanes though... I mean, that’s just stupid and way too high cuz you can’t see shit (only clouds surround you) and the pressure really gets to me whole body, especially my ears.
I feel like someone’s repeatedly stabbing my ears with chopsticks every time I fly… does anyone else get this problem? Apparently the pipes in our noses and ears aren’t working well enough to equalize, *sad*
*thinking about the dreadful flights I will be taking for my Australia trip… first time flying alone*
. . . . . . . . .
Besides the obviously popular superpowers that everybody else wants to have(infinite money, being invisible, being immortal, etc) here are a few which I think are quite unique and personal to me!
As you all should know by now, I’m a HUGE fan of the ocean, marine creatures and particularly killer whales and I would absolutely love to be able to speak to orcas or understand them in some way, and of course, be able to breathe underwater just like Harry did in Goblet of Fire!!!
There’s just so many secrets, mysteries and fantasies in the deep blue seas waiting to be explored… I get the chills just thinking about how amazing it is under there.
I know scuba diving sort of lets you breathe underwater but that just doesn’t count lah. I can also say skydiving lets me fly but let’s face it, if your tank runs out of air or if your parachute doesn’t pop up in time, you’re screwed… Superpowers are special for a reason, because it gives us something we can’t have!!!
I wouldn’t even mind eating some gillyweed and grow some very painful looking and ugly gills..
Watching this video of my incredibly special time at Sea World never fails to get me all emotional and teary-eyed… I miss you Sea World!!!
Swimming with them is one of my biggest dreams in the world (I dream about it at night, and in the day ALL THE TIME), and I’d give anything to be able to do it… but quite frankly, the thought really scares me.
I don’t know, what if they attack me and eat me?
………….Ok this sounds stupid coming from me because I KNOW for a fact that killer whales have NEVER attached humans in the wild unprovoked and they definitely do not eat humans… They’re not opportunistic hunters despite being apex predators of the ocean and they maintain quite a strict diet of whales, porpoises, stingrays and seals (only things that belong in the sea)
Ok I’m not going to give you a whole biography lesson on killer whales, but yes back to my point about being able to breathe underwater… That’d be so awesome!
I’d be a badass marine biologist, haha!!
. . . . . . . .
I guess a contributing factor for wanting this ability to breathe underwater would be that one of my worst fears in life is to actually drown to death.(gee why am I so morbid?)
Ever since I’ve watched movies like Titanic, Deep Blue Sea and other creepy sea-horrors I’ve been scared to death of drowning…
I think it’s so damn horrible how a person has to breathe in so much water (we all know how much that hurts) and their body will keep forcing them to breathe in water until their lungs are completely filled with water instead of oxygen before they finally DIE!!!!
It takes a lot longer than most other deaths and it’s really the most traumatic coz you know EXACTLY what is going on..
If you get hit by a car, you’re like OMG WTF for one second when you see the car speeding towards you but the impact would most probably cause you to lose consciousness or you will be in so much shock that you don’t realize what kind of deep shit you are in…
But drowning is just so helpless!!! Ok I will stop talking about death now.
. . . . . . . .
My last featured superpower of the day would definitely have to be…..
I could take Sam back millions of years ago and let him see dinosaurs with his very own eyes
I love killer whales, but because I know they exist. Being fascinated by an animal you’ve never and will never see is very different..
Well jokes aside, don’t you wish you could just reverse time and undo your mistakes, so you wouldn’t have to carry regrets around in a heavy heart now?
Even though I don’t have many regrets in my life (or at all) I think having time travel becoming possible would benefit us all so much.
Some mistakes were never meant to be made (like the invention of bombs and guns and religion) and they were screwing our world up so much, the effects are irreversible..
If I could travel in time, maybe I could have done something to spare this world from the enormous suffering it’s going through now.
Maybe I could have stopped wars, maybe I could have stopped suicide, maybe I could have stopped idiots from being (lol) well….. you get the idea.
Oooh oh I absolutely love the 50′s to 70′s era!!!!
Everything was just so much more classier back then. Men still bothered to wear ties and suits to dinners, women wore clothing with gorgeous cuts and fabulous designs (not ripped leggings, studs or any of that bullshit)
I prefer old fashion (vintage), and of course OLD MUSIC.
My FAVOURITE band of all-time is The Beatles.
I love the Carpenters and Queen and Eagles and all that other good stuff, but I don’t know, there’s just something amazingly extra special about the Beatles that makes you feel like they’re your best friend, your sole companion and the one who gets you through the shittiest of times.
There is never a day or a mood that a Beatles song cannot make better…
If you’re down in the dumps, Hey Jude will cheer you up. If you’re missing a loved one, Yesterday will keep you company… and of course, talent like that never dies – Paul McCartney’s music still appeals and speaks to my heart.
I first heard this song during “Everybody’s Fine”(one of the most heartbreaking movies I’ve ever watched, and it’s just so real.. you should watch it because it WILL make you cry)
And I got hooked onto it right from the very first verse… I now sing it to myself all the time, especially when I’m upset.
It’s so good to know that despite the greatest talents in this world are pretty much dead (Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson) we can still revisit the past and relive some of the most special moments in the history of music while listening to their everlasting music…
Music really completes me :’)
. . . . . . . . . . . .
And there you have it people, we’ve come to the end of my Superpower Monday post!!
It’s interesting to note how a supposed post about magical powers ended up linking back to all the actual reasons why I want to possess them.
It was fun to forget about all my troubles for awhile and just think about my hopes anddreams and fears and of course, superpowers.
Who doesn’t love superpowers.
Even if it means nothing to you, it means a lot to me!
I hope you can relate, if not, nevermind – then tell me,
What kind of Superpowers do you want to have for yourself? Why do you want them and what would you with it?
Maybe if you think about it hard enough, you just might just find out a little more about yourself too.
Let your imagination run wild and it will take you to places you’ve never dreamt of going ♥
I PROMISED myself that I would go to the doctor’s today (and yesterday plus the day before) but I still didn’t end up going because….. I don’t even know why.
I think it’s just a childhood stigma thing – that going to the doctor’s is bad and that means there is something wrong with you (and obviously there are many things wrong with me) and for some reason I am STILL scared of doctors and never visit them even when I’m sick.
I only visit them when I absolutely have to (like high fever or something) and by then I’m usually too sick to care anyways.
The funny thing is, most of the time I go to the doctor’s only because I want to know what’s causing my problem so that I can prevent it in the future, but rarely do I ever consume the medicine that I’m supposed to take on a daily basis because I hate medicine.
Most of the time I just let myself get better on my own… Takes longer, but it builds up my immune system, no? *lies to self*
I HATE it when doctors tell you the meds are sweet or tasteless when in fact every single one of them taste like absolute fucking shit.
I’m not expecting them to taste like skittles or anything, but omg why can’t they add flavoring or something it just taste so bad!!!!
Actually it does taste like they added flavouring. Essence of Shit probably.
I CANNOT take liquid medsbecause I’m very sensitive towards certain taste / smells and I will gag up a storm if you force it down my throat.
Speaking of which, I think almonds taste really awful. There was once at my cousin’s wedding, they had almond paste for dessert (a whole fuckin bowl of cream of almonds soup yuck) and my mother was telling me how rude it would be to not finish the food at peoples weddings so I was forced to gulp it all down.
While I was swallowing it, I already had a very bad feeling because my tastebuds were completely rejecting it and it became so bad that I gagged really badly and almost puked right back onto my bowl after my fourth spoonful or something.
Not very pretty at all as you can imagine…
You know what’s strange? I HATE eating nuts whole (or when they’re in concentrated paste / soup form) but I’m completely ok with taking them in small quantities.
Like indian food for example – they use a lot of nuts and tons of herbs and spices. Pretty sure I would puke if I had a concentrate of each ingredient alone, but a bit of everything makes it so much more bearable.
Besides, who could like almond paste anyway?!? Yuck, wanna puke when I think about it now.
. . . . . .
Ok I didn’t realize just how long I’ve been rambling on. You might be wondering why I’m suddenly on the topic of medical issues..
That’s because I’ve been having the most DISGUSTING rashes / hives recently and they’re driving me crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!
WARNING :DISTURBINGLY ITCHY IMAGE AHEAD.
. . . . . . . . . . . . .
…..FUCK MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How fucking disgusting is that?!?!?!
My heart dies a little inside every time I look at that picture, because I realize that’s me.
I’ve developed this extremely itchy and ferociously vastly spreading rash on my outer thigh, near my ass.
At first there wasn’t anything there at all, the area just felt particularly itchy so I started scratching and then it evolved from particularly itchy to UNCONTROLLABLY itchylike omfg it was so bad I really wanted to cry.
It would itch SO much that I would be ripping my skin out just trying to not go crazy from the itch. It happened about a week plus ago…
The reason why I haven’t seen the doctor yet (besides the stupid reasons stated at the start of this post) is because at first, it was very mild.
Just a few red bumps at the start, but with each day the condition got worse. I would scratch myself to death at night (when I’m not aware of it) and wake up every morning with horribly inflamed rashes all over!!!
Initially I thought it was bed bugs and I freaked out so bad. I was prepared to stay at a hotel until my imagined-bed-bug-problem was fixed but then I realized it made no sense that bed bugs would bite SPECIFICALLY on my outer thighs…
It cannot be food or any other random allergies, because I’ve been staying home very often and eating exactly the same things I’ve been eating.. as far as I know, I don’t have any food allergies although my skin is VERY sensitive.. like crazily sensitive.
If any part of my body touches a foreign substance or a particularly dirty / dusty object, my skin would start to itch and turn red in about 15 seconds.
I would feel an uncomfortable tingling / burning sensation and the next thing I know, I have a spontaneous mini-rash. Lovely.
So anyway, I decided to think about this situation LONG AND HARD for the entire day, because I was sick and tired of not knowing why it’s happened and I don’t want to just go the doctor’s and have him diagnose me with something stupidly obvious because more than likely he’ll tell me I’m eating the wrong food and he’ll just give me some anti-itching cream and some anti biotics and tell me to rest well.
I HAVE to know what’s causing this madly depressing rash and I have come to believe that what’s causing me all this misery is actually….
. . . . .
YES, my beloved chair that Sam bought from ikea last year to solve all my backache problems….
I asked my maid when was the last time she cleaned my chair, and she said a few days ago, when I just went out for shopping. LIES, BITCH!!!!
Upon closer inspection, I was horrified to see that a stain I’d accidentally left on my chair a few months ago (brown chocolate sauce I think) was STILL there, so that means my maid hasn’t cleaned it in like FOREVER!
I was so pissed off with her because obviously she’s lying and she never does her work properly!!! *angry*
1) I left the webcam on that day when I went out, Sam said he never saw her cleaning it and 2) The chair is absolutely filthy!
Knowing my super sensitive skin and looking at the state of my chair and the many months of bacteria and germs I allowed to build up on it, I think it’s highly likely that it’s my chair that’s causing my fugly, unbearable rashes.
I went nuts just now and rubbed hand sanitizer in crazy amounts all over my chair, my keyboard, my make up.. ANYTHING that could be collecting germs.
I didn’t have anti-bacterial wipes and I figured just soap wasn’t enough, so hand sanitizer works too right… RIGHT?!?
Dunno but whatever.
Well anyway after cleaning my chair, my ass feels so much less itchy after sitting on it!! Maybe it’s just my imagination but I feel better already.
I thought I’d just share this experience with you guys, because anything could happen to anyone!
I suggest you go wipe your phone with anti-bacterial wipes before you face starts to break out!!!!!!!!
LIKE THIS!Le sigh. Just a gentle reminder…
I’m hopefully going to the doc’s later with my mum, just to make sure I don’t have herpes or anything. Lol just kidding. But I still should go to the doc’s.
. . . . . . . . . . .
While we’re on the topic of Weird Bodily Things, I thought I might as well make this post more interesting by sharing with you guys what weird things I can do with my body!
Well I can’t make my ears move or do cartwheels, but I can….
Roll my tongue into weird ass shapes!!
I can do a U shape, I can do some cool “backflips” and twist and turn it, and of course… the “flower” shape you see in the above picture!!!!
Well it’s not very well done there because it’s hard to take a close up of your tongue with a heavy DSLR camera while maintaining that position lol
. . . . .
Another Weird Bodily Thing about me is that…
I am strangely flexible in certain areas for somebody who never stretches.Take my fingers for example!!!! I can bend it back superrr far by just using my muscles and not pulling it back with anything.
It may not look like very much, but try bending your fingers backwards like that and I’m pretty sure mine goes back way more than yours!!!
Not that I’m trying to show off or anything, since it’s not exactly a talent, but y’know… just sayin’ LOL.
(actually apparently it is, a thai person saw that and was very impressed, she insisted I should take up thai dance classes because they have very elaborate hand movements. hah!!!!)
Ok gonna end this disturbing post as quickly as I started it.
Sorry if I made you itchy just by looking at my rash pics, because I know how terrible it looks!!!!!
. . . . . . .
So what kind of Weird Bodily Things do you guys have?
Can you move your ears? Or perhaps, touch the tip of your nose with your tongue? Can you move your little toe without moving the rest?
Or maybe you have had a really fucked up rash before, just like the one I’m having now? *sighs and sympathizes*
I really hope this rash clears up ASAP because I’m leaving for Australia in about a week.. omg cannot wait.
