Techy AhSoh strikes again with an A(un)t-boxing video of Leagoo Shark 1 mobile phone.
First part of the video shows what’s in the box while 1.30s onward is mainly about specs.

It’s available in 3 different colour; Starlight Silver, Midnight Black & Champagne Gold. Full HD 6″ screen with 63000mAh battery power weights 240.9g and only 8.5mm thin.

Cheating on my love with Canon G5X

There is no denying that I’m a die hard fan for Olympus micro 4/3 cameras. (And sadly, I am NOT SPONSORED by Olympus.) I love my current camera setup (Olympus EM10 with 12-40mm f2.8 Olympus pro lens) to bits, but yet the biggest downside is in its size. I won’t be able to fit it into a dainty little handbag for a girl’s night out or for a classy wedding dinner. In moments like this, my heart flutters in hope of finding a compact that is small in size but equally as powerful.

Last Christmas, the Canon G5X caught my eye.

Due to the hectic holiday season, I haven’t given it much thoughts. But, I was recently given a one-on-one intimate date with the Canon G5X and I’m thinking that might be a game changer.

Photos reflected below are all shot on aperture mode and no photo editing has been done.

Dakota Crescent Playground
There isn’t much left of these old school playground. I’m familiar with the dragon at Toa Payoh and Pelicans at Dover. Those were my childhood as a kid. But unfortunately, I’ve never brought my kids to any of these playgrounds. Initially, they were extremely apprehensive about getting into a playground filled with sand, but once they are at it, there’s no stopping. 😂

Asia’s Next Top Model. Boleh qualify lah hor!
Camera was extremly portable and I could easily just whip it outta my handbag for this shot.
Canon G5X Portraits

From one playground to the other. Tiong Bahru Park Adventure Playground features a whimsical train setup. James went from I’m not touching the sand to refusing to go home at the end of the day. The sun was already blazing when we were at this playground, but the high definition electronic view finder on the Canon G5X made it easy for me to compose these shots!
Tiong Bahru Park Canon GX5

After an exhausting morning at the playgrounds, we explored street art at Tiong Bahru estate. The jobless AhSoh now sells kueh kueh at Tiong Baru. 多多 support ahh! For a full run down on where these lovely murals are located, check out Life’s Tiny Miracles extensive post!
Tiong Bahru Murals

Tummies were rumbling after a whole morning of photo walk. Lunch is served at PoTeaTo Bistro Café located at 78, Yong Siak Street. Lovin’ the cosy interior! Lighting condition in the restaurant wasn’t optimum for photo taking, but the Canon’s bright f1.8 lens made this shot possible.

Printing some pictures on the latest Canon CP1200 photo printer while I chow down lunch. Images were printed via WIFI connection through my phone. Easy Peasy! What more? The Canon CP1200 can now print 54 prints on a single battery charge – that’s about 1.5 times as many as the previous model. I foresee many fun photo printing opportunities on the go!

I find it hard to bid good bye to the Canon G5X. Perhaps, I should really consider a power compact for the sanity of my shoulders! Let’s see how long my will power would be able to resit before I make a purchase. 😆

Full Disclosure: We were invited to hang out with Canon with a loan set of Canon G5X for the purpose of this review. No monetary compensation has been received. Views and opinion reflected on this blog post are my own and are no way influenced by anybody else.

Check out my favorite acapella group (Out Of the Blue) from Oxford University on the bombastic Asus Zenfone dual speakers! Oh, did I mention that these boys are eye candies too?!?!?

3. Five Megapixel Front Camera with Awesome Selfie Mode
Guys, this is why you should never believe in what you see on social media anymore! The Asus Zenfone selfie mode is AWESOME! Apart from just soothing out those nasty wrinkles. This selfie camera has function to shave fats off my chipmunk cheeks and enlarge my listless Asian eyes!

Now that we’re done checking what’s IN the box,
let’s take a look at the aesthetic aspect of the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE601KL).

Cheeky fellows who tell AhSoh that it ain’t the size of the boat, it’s the the motion of the ocean. AhSoh tell you don’t BULLSH*T lah! Of course size matters! The Asus Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE601KL) is 6″ lOoooOoOoog and full HD too! Perfect to watch all my Korean dramas in!
Review of Asus Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE601KL)

Display screen is made from Coning Gorilla Glass 4. This means that the screen is strong like King Kong, offering twice the drop-damage resistance of its predecessor, a 2.5X increase in retained strength and is 85% less likely to break in daily use. Just the thing for a clut like me!

The curvature of the phone makes holding 6 inches a pleasure!

Dual sim card slot is GREAT for a seasoned traveller like me. Tai tai like me, cannot afford to be out of touch you know…. There’s also a micro USB slot to expand digital storage.
Asus Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE601KL) review

Rear camera is a 13mp, f2.0 camera with laser auto-focus technology. Camera can focus in 0.03seconds! Perhaps even faster than our snipers in the commando unit leh!

Front facing camera is 5mp, f2.0 with real time beautification mode that makes me chio-er in every shot! Even 48 can also look like sweet 18 loh!
