I’ve been a long time user of Digi, ever since I got my first mobile phone. Back then (this was in the mid- 2000s) not many phones had internet connectivity – people bought prepaid reload cards that cost RM30 per month, and sent SMSes and MMSes (remember those?) for between 0.20 to RM1 each. When I entered college and needed Internet on-the-go, I switched to … Continue reading Why I’m Switching From Digi…After 15 Years.
I rarely buy games when they first come out. Previously, it was because I didn’t have a gaming device powerful enough to run them. But even after buying a new gaming laptop last year, I’ve only gotten older titles, because: they’re much cheaper, and if you haven’t played them before, what does it matter if they’re ‘old’ or new? Assassin’s Creed: Origins was one of … Continue reading Let’s Talk About Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: What Could Have Been A Great Game
I did it again. After promising that I’d stop buying body care products after going crazy over Christmas sales … I saw an ad for a Bath & Body Works sale (items going for 60%!) . Well. We all know what happened next. Now I have three tubs of body butter to finish, hand creams that will probably sit on the shelf looking pretty, and … Continue reading Bath & Body Works Haul/My Lack of Self Control

Like most of my ‘projects’, my first time making DIY scented candles started with a whim: I had a long Christmas break and thought it would be fun to make my own candles at home. Lazada sells convenient candle making kits, most of which are from China. I ordered them in early December, and they came just in time for Christmas! Although I like artsy … Continue reading DIY Scented Candles Even A Noob Can Make
There are two kinds of people on this planet: those who subscribe to Netflix, and those who don’t. Until very recently, I belonged to the latter. As someone who has little patience for TV shows and web series (can’t be bothered to sit through multiple episodes), I’ve never felt the need to, despite how popular Netflix is with my peers. I’d much rather spend my … Continue reading I Finally Got Netflix
Back when I was still working at my old office in PJ, I used to drop by at Pop@ Jaya One for some retail therapy over my lunch break, or sometimes after work. The artsy space, which was created to help local entrepreneurs showcase their products, was a treasure trove of one-of-a-kind items, from bargain clothing to handmade trinkets and souvenirs. Since working from home, … Continue reading Shop Till You Drop At Pop The Arcade @ Jaya One, PJ
Ah, capitalism. No matter how vigilant we try to be against the tricks of the trade, I’m pretty sure we’ve all fallen victim to seemingly ‘innocent’ marketing traps at one time or other. It’s the .99$ promos, the membership discounts, the buy-1-free-1 deals. We think we’re getting a bargain; that we’ve outsmarted the game. In reality, we’re all just suckers in a system designed to … Continue reading The Sales and Marketing Trap – How Companies Get You To Buy More Than You Actually Need
