Wherever I may roam…


I have a couple of things that I always carry around – a camera is one of them. I usually have a compact digicam which I use to take photos of everything that, er…catches my eye.

However, that is just one of the gadgets I carry. I have to lug around a dSLR, a tablet, and cell phones while I’m on assignment. I’m a freelance writer for a couple of publications so usually I carry this battered and gaudy sling bag which totally clashes with my outfit 9 times out of 10.

It’s red. It doesn’t go well with any color (except maybe red). The North Face sling bag can get rather heavy when it’s fully loaded too. I have always wished for something that just integrates everything…

…and I’ve found it! πŸ˜€

samsung galaxy note

The Samsung GALAXY Note is very high on my list of stuff to get right about now coz it has just about everything I want. The 8 MP back camera beats the image quality of the digicam that I usually carry around. The 5.3” screen makes it easy for me to jot down notes while I’m covering an event. It also happens to be a cell phone that you can easily slip into your pocket!

People always ask me why I don’t use pen and paper. Well, the answer is quite pragmatic – writing on a tablet saves you from having to transcribe it again – it’s already in digital format. I can even write an entire article and send it to my editor on a tablet, but then again it doesn’t solve the integration issue. #firstworldpains

The best thing about the Samsung GALAXY Note is that it offers all the performance, functionality and features of a tablet in a portable smartphone!

It also keeps you connected and entertained with games and all the email, messaging and social media applications you’re used to in today’s stay-connected world.

Here’s some of the awesome features that Samsung GALAXY Note has:

android gingerbread

Android 2.3 Gingerbread running on a 1.4 Ghz dual-core processor
It’s one of the fastest Android smartphones around


5.3” HD Super AMOLED display
It’s like the Goldilocks story – not too big, not too small, just right! You can slip it in your pocket (try doing that with a full sized tablet) and it has enough high resolution screen real estate to work (and play) with


8 MP camera
The cameras in smartphones nowadays are so good you don’t even need a separate digicam for regular use. I notice that you tend to take far more photos when it’s easy e.g. just whipping out your cell phone, instead of digging around for your digicam. Catalog every minute of your life! πŸ™‚
There’s a 2 MP front camera for Skype or video chatting too.

Anyway, I’ve been lusting for the Samsung GALAXY Note ever since they launched it on the 11th of November at La Bodega in Pavilion. I’ve done a bit of research and Celcom’s plan sounds like the best among them. You can get a Samsung GALAXY note for as low as RM 1,368 (normal retail price is RM 2,299) with the Celcom Exec 250.


My cell phone bill usually goes slightly over RM 300 per month so this would be the ideal one for me. I need that 5GB of data volume per month and you can’t go wrong with Celcom – it has the widest network coverage in Malaysia. The network quality is awesome for data and calls and the connection stability is rock solid.

    • Haha! That would be a great way to use it. πŸ˜‰

      I personally like it coz it’s just about the right size for me to do my work – not too big, not too small, just right. πŸ˜€

  1. it looks like they put the samsung galaxy sII up against an iron presser and held it there for a couple days to achieve the stretch/expanded/flatter look. technology upgrades 101 πŸ˜›

    • Well, it has great screen real estate – gotta love that. I like how I can slip it into my pocket and still get it to work reasonably with the 5.3″ screen. πŸ™‚

  2. decisions! the galaxy note is super tempting but dunno if i should get this or the galaxy sii. 5.3 inch vs 4.3 inch. i need to get one soon, just deciding which one to get. don’t want to regret later. πŸ™‚

    • Well, it depends on your needs bro! πŸ™‚

      I’ll go for the Note personally, the additional 1 inch in screen real estate is more important to me and what I do. πŸ˜€

    • Yup, the cakes in Suchan are awesome. I practically ate 2 1/2 by myself. πŸ™‚

      Same here, I’m looking to get the Samsung Galaxy Note, it’s perfect for my needs! πŸ˜€
