Photo Diary: Hongkong

No Comments »

Hello darlings! I've gone to Hongkong with a few my friends around this time last year. It was such a fun time for us that I do tend to look back at that time and wish we could go on a trip overseas again. If you and your pals want to go on a trip abroad, I highly recommend Hongkong for its close proximity and for the number of fun activities that you and your friends can enjoy.

The best part of the trip, for me, was the wide variety of food. We enjoyed both fast food and local cuisines, and I think I can vouch for me and my friends when I say thay the best meal we've had was at Cafe De Coral. Of course, I can't read Cantonese - but you wouldn't miss that red and yellow sign board that meant good food was near. I wish I could have taken more food photos but I'll leave you with this cute Mcdonalds meal we had on our last day here.

Yum! See you next time with more travel photos. Let me know if you like these kinds of posts and I'll be sure to feature more in the future. :)

Google Chromecast Review

No Comments »

Hello my little darlings!  Sorry for not posting anything for the past few months. I have been hooked on microwave popcorn and Netflix for so long that I forgot to update this little space. Speaking of binge watching, I have been enjoying streaming the latest episode of Riverdale on my TV thanks to Google Chromecast and Netflix.

The Google Chrome cast is a tiny portable gadget that turns any ordinary TV into a smart TV in four easy steps:

1. Connect one end of the Chromecast to any HDMI port on your TV.

2. Connect the USB end into the power adaptor and into a power outlet, or just simple connect the USB into any USB ports in your TV. The Chromecast has a lengthy cord that can be perfectly hidden behind the TV by adjusting the straps.

3. Download the Google Cast app on your mobile phone or tablet and set up the chromecast to connect to your home wifi.

4. Download streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu or Youtube and start watching your favorite shows.

If this doesn't instantly turn you into a couch potato, then I do not know what will. If you haven't tried out Netflix yet, they are offering a free month's subscription to new subscribers. All you have to do is download their app, and sign up to enjoy your free trial. :)

Hope you all have a fun weekend! Please leave me a comment below with recommendations on which movie or TV series I should watch next. Here's to seeing you next time! :)
