Which smartphone should you buy to get the best gaming experience?

Mobile phones are more powerful than ever before and this is showcased best when looking at how they perform when playing games. Mobile phones used to have to download all their games in order to play them however now they are so sophisticated that just like at home you can go online and play in your browser. Sites such as have seen a huge drive in traffic as a result of this. Many people now access casino games and a variety of other games whist on the move. Obviously, in order to do this, you need a powerful mobile phone and so here are a few that you should definitely look at.

Google Nexus

The android operating system was created by Google, so obviously a first party phone created by Google is a fantastic choice and the Nexus five proves this. With its quad core processor and plenty of RAM to back it up, the Google Nexus is a great fun for playing games.

Laptop Fixed! (Day 37 #100HappyDays)

I bought my Dell laptop last year, in July. And a few weeks ago, the right-click function no longer worked. It took me a few days to call Dell’s customer service hotline, but eventually I did and today, their service tech guy came in and replaced the case of my keyboard and touchpad.

I actually wasn’t able to check reviews for my Dell laptop (Inspiron 14 3421) before I bought it. All I know is Dell’s after-sales customer service is remarkable. My last laptop – a Compaq – lasted for about 5 years before it completely broke down on me (I had it repaired once), and it survived a major crash. No, not hard drive crash but actual, physical crash after it was smashed against the ground by someone in my past. 😀 So I knew Compaq was durable. When I decided to buy this Dell laptop, I honestly wasn’t 100% sure about how long it’ll last.

My New Kindle Paperwhite (Day 19 #100HappyDays)

My bro and I have been wanting to buy our own Kindle for quite sometime now. I’ve wanted to rekindle my love for reading, but since I couldn’t care well enough for my own books (or I’m just too OC when it comes to handling a book – I don’t like the pages getting folded accidentally, etc), I decided that the best way to start reading again is through an e-Reader. So, finally, yesterday, we both our own Kindle Paperwhite.

Kindle Paperwhite

I remember back in high school, or even elementary, I frequent the library. No, I’m not the studious type. The books I read weren’t all educational, but mostly entertaining books that feed my imagination… and my vocabulary at the same time. 🙂 I was a member of the Booklover’s Club almost my entire high school life; I was even an officer of the club during my senior year which allowed me to borrow multiple books from the library with ease. I used to love the smell of books, but since I developed some kind of allergy from the ink and paper used before on books that I loved (which is also why I had to stop reading the newspaper), I had to lessen my reading and was stuck with the new, magazine-type ones (Reader’s Digest, Archie Comics, etc).

With the Kindle, I can now read all the books I’ve been longing to finish all these years. Since I’m in this moment in my life where I’m contemplating a career change (still in social media though), the first ebook I decided to read is Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg. It’s all about empowering women to be more ambitious. 🙂 I saw myself agreeing with her viewpoints. We need more women in power. 🙂

I might finally decide to finish the book Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, but I feel like I’ve already found myself. I started reading it when I was at the time of my life when I felt like I lost myself and had to renew my love for me. Reading helped a lot. Maybe finishing the book will help put me in a mindset that’ll prepare me to find love and romance, eh? 😉

Existence of Social Media (Day 17 #100HappyDays)

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again – I am thankful for the existence of social media. Aside from finding my ‘calling’ when it comes to a career I want to pursue, social media has brought about many positive changes in my life. Sure, we can argue about how it has enabled a lot of negativity to spread quickly across the world, but we can’t deny that the good outweighs the bad. And I don’t think social media is to be blamed for all the disadvantages, but how us as humans use it. I believe social media has more vital effects on our lives.

Social media not only enabled us to communicate better (again, some might disagree), but it also gave us a way to be updated on our friends’ and loved ones’ lives, no matter where they are located. Sure, we don’t communicate on the phone as much as before, but social media is more cost-effective and I feel it has made it possible for us to be more connected. Some people might not like talking over the phone and they prefer to text or email. With social media, you just need to open your Facebook account and send a private message to someone without any extra costs (unless, of course, you don’t have a monthly DSL internet plan).

We also got to see, through images, how our loved ones are doing. In a way, we get to be part of their lives. You get to share your own life too to the people you care about.

One of the things I love about social media is I got to meet new friends. Through my blogs, I met some really cool people, especially our fellow foodies who we get to share delicious meals with. 🙂

And, of course, working in social media has made me realize what I’m supposed to be doing. I didn’t take a marketing course in college because I didn’t know I had a way with words. Sure, I love writing and reading back then, but I didn’t know I can come up with witty lines and ideas that marketing requires. So, now, I’m deeply in love with my work as a Social Media Manager and a supervisor for a team of smart people too. I’ve only been in this industry for over 2 years, but I feel I have a bright future ahead of me. I can’t wait to find out where this road leads me. 🙂

Diablo 3 Party Time + Perks of Working at Home (Day 12 #100HappyDays)

I skipped my workout today because one of my close friends, Saji, forced me to play with her. We ended up playing as a party of 3 when a fellow gamer friend, Karl (hello, in case you get to read this 😛 ), joined us. Check out the screenshot I took below.

Me with Saji and Karl playing Diablo 3

Can’t wait for the weekend. I’m planning on buying my bro his own Diablo 3 license before the sale ends, so there’ll be 4 of us playing. Woot! 😀

We played for about 3 hours I think (2 with Karl probably), and I didn’t even notice the time. Good thing I had my alarm on so I can login on time for work.

Ahhh the perks of working at home. 😉

Now, I need a shower…. after my shift then. Hahahaha 😀
