Monster Isport Fuels Me 0

Whenever I workout, music is a must for me. Some people may say they concentrate better in silence. But i need my music, it’s highly important for me because it entertains me when i’m doing long cardio sessions and motivates me when my mind is ready to just say “screw it all”. Other than being picky with my music, i’m also very picky with my what my ear piece is like. I need my ears to be submerged with sound and it has to be able to just stay in my ear despite all the sweat. Which is why i was so so happy when i first heard about the Monster iSport. 

It’s the ultimate earphone for a person who is a fitness enthusiast.. doesn’t matter if you enjoy working out indoors or outdoors. It is the ultimate in-ear headphone to satisfy you musical needs. Let me share why!!! I actually have two, one is the black but I want to say a big thank you to Monster for giving me a blue version as well!

Monster iSport

This is what you’ll see inside when you open up the box. The earphones that come with a mini pouch to take care of your earphones, and inside there are buds of different sizes.. You’ll see that in a sec. Keep scrolling..

oh my gosh look how sleek these babies are! The flat wire that looks like a fettucine is a tangle-free cord where you’ll also find the ControlTalk in-line control which simply hosts one button to allow users to control music playback while an integrated microphone means you can also answer calls on your phone. These babies can even go into water no problem…meaning you can swim with them. To clean is a joy, cause i don’t have to worry bout them getting damaged. I have yet to try this but apparently if you throw them into the washing machine by accident they can still survive post-wash. Now that’s awesome news, plus one of the big selling points of the Isport.

Monster iSport ear pieces

Ta dah take a look at all the different buds and the different hook sizes. The come in size XS, S, M and L. Doesn’t matter if you have a big big ear or a small one, one of these buds are bound to fit you in some way. I get real annoyed when an earphone doesn’t fit for my ear… sometimes it’s too big then it’ll be too painful. If it’s too small then it won’t stay and it’ll keep slipping.. yes there’s no pleasing me! :P The hook is enough to fit into the curve of the ear.

Monster iSport ear hooks and clip

Have an up close look at the hook and the isport even comes with a clip so you can even clip your wire to your clothes preventing it from moving all over the place, and without your arms suddenly getting entangled .

Monster iSport In Ear

So how’s the sound? Superb.. I’m not saying this in a bias way.. whenever i pop them into my ears, i get prepared to have a surround sound moment. That’s at least what i feel like la. I listen to songs with good bass like Skrillex and some awesome soundtracks like that of Battleship or the Resident Evil theme song.

My verdict, you don’t want to miss out using the Monster Isport, I will admit that the price is high at about RM800 at stores, but if you have the money for it. Just get this to satisfy your music needs when you workout at the gym. I can tell you when i first heard the Isport, i actually made a trip to get the headphones. I’m a bit compulsive like that. I’ve no regrets and i’m absolutely digging the in-ear music pieces. Isport for life!

Agent 7.7 Mission 2 0

Previously

Agent 7.7 is reviewing the photos he took of the day’s earlier pursuit. From the naked eye, it seems as if it was just a meeting between two men yet the Super AMOLED Plus screen reveals everything in minute details and it seems like a small vile was exchanged. He enlarges the photo and saw the initials D.O on it.

The events from the night before were still racing through his mind.  He frowned as he tried to piece together what Agent S was doing with Lana..

He flipped picture after picture on the Galaxy Tab 7.7. He had to hand it to the Shadow dude, whose name he found out was Dean – he was really very thorough during his mission to save Agent 7.7 from the hidden base.  Dean took shots from every possible angle through the hidden camera he had on his black suit that day. Impressive. The syndicate trained him very well …either that or they must have done some tests on him.

He swiped his finger against the smooth screen and then he stopped short on a picture. It was at the entrance of the mansion. Lana and Agent S were dragging Agent 7.7 through the gate. Behind them was a Rolls Royce Phantom, the back door was open  and at the back was a man with white hair.

He used his thumb and middle finger on the screen to zoom in on the picture. He cocked his head to one side as he tried to recall the face of the white haired man. He’s seen him before, but where? Seated next to him was..

“No it can’t be!”

Agent 7.7 Mission 1 267

Agent 7.7 woke up with a throbbing headache. Memories of last night’s events seemed hazy to him. All he remembers is the smoky bar and the last drink he had, before finding himself covered in cold sweat on the floor of his hotel room. He searches around for his Galaxy Tab 7.7 but quickly discovers that it has gone missing! Suddenly, it all came back to him.

____________

His ex-partner, Agent S had suddenly picked up and disappeared, so the syndicate had arranged for him to have new partner. The bar was the meeting point to see who this new colleague of his would be. While waiting he remembers a girl at the bar.. Clad in a lack leather jacket.. She had bright blonde hair but you could tell it wasn’t her actual colour. She was sipping on a glass of whiskey on the rocks. Quite a manly drink for a petite little thing like her…

Agent 7.7 considered asking where she was from..but then he thought better of it. He looked away and fiddle with his glass. That was when he received a notification on his Galaxy tab 7.7… he quickly swiped a finger at the notification to see who it was. The notification bar slide up slightly and he found it was a message from his mother telling him to call her when he was free. Agent 7.7 rolled his eyes to the sky and muttered to himself “Why did he give his contact number to his mother of all people!?”

He glanced once more at this dark females..and realised she was looking straight at him.

There was the opening. He smiled at her and she smiled back coyly at him. But there was something off with the look. It was inviting and yet she looked like she wanted to eat him alive.. Once again Agent 7.7 decided to ignore that weird gut feeling of his… They started off with a simple conversation and talked about random things. She didn’t reveal a lot to him.. neither did he… Secretive much…But at least he got a name out of her – Lana..

He can’t deny that he did enjoy her company.. She laughed and agreed, clinking her glass to his.

Around her neck was an interesting pendant. It looked like teeny tiny handcuffs… He decided to look away just in case, she thought he was busy looking at something else other than her pendant which rested neatly on her clavicle. He took out his Galaxy Tab 7.7 to share with her a destination he really wanted to see when the syndicate gave him a day off..

 She turned the Galaxy Tab towards her and her fingers glided across the smooth edges of the tab.

She seemed very impressed by the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and asked where she could get one herself. He told her this was a special Tab.. you wouldn’t be able to get this particular one, because there were special programs that were only meant for him. Lana quirked one eyebrow at him and just smiled..They talked for another hour then she told him that she had to take her leave. Agent 7.7 told her that he would see her to his car but she said it wasn’t necessary.. He watched her make her way to the door. Then he remembered that he was suppose to meet up with his new partner, but the fella never showed up. He looked around to see if anyone was looking or waiting for him. He gave it another 20 minutes and finally decided to leave.

Agent 7.7 took his Galaxy Tab 7.7 from the table and left the bar. As he walked out the door towards his parked car he felt something amidst. His eyes darted left and right…He took a look behind his shoulder.. nothing. He spun around.. nothing… He looked back again towards his car and he saw a figure standing at the top of the road.

The figure looked to be a woman and she was pulling something out from her back…

Swords… and she was advancing towards him. He wanted to do something but he was frozen on the spot..

The dark female  figure was coming closer..

and closer

He could hear the blade scraping on the hard stone road… he wanted to yell but his tongue and mouth wouldn’t work. What the heck was going on??

All he could remember next was, was trying to figure out why he couldn’t move or talk and who was this g-….

Lana!!??

She swung her sword upwards and everything went black….

.

.

.

Agent 7.7 was down on the ground.. everything was foggy.. and with head that felt like it just went through a rollercoaster…

The Tab.. where was the Galaxy Tab 7.7????? No she mustn’t get her hands on it..

Lana held up the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and searched for something on the maps application..

He couldn’t see exactly what but it looked like a part of Europe…. why???

Lana sheathed her sword and  held the Galaxy Tab 7.7 close to her chest..
Did she cut him? Was he bleeding? no he just felt a pang of pain on his head..

Lana turned around and was starting to walk away..

No..

Wait…

The blue light from the Galaxy Tab 7.7 started to get fainter and fainter

Next thing he knew, Lana was gone..

_____________

Who was she?? and how did he end up in the hotel room? What happened after the attack..

Then he noticed something shiny on the floor. He went closer to the object. It was a pendant – a handcuff pendant and it looked exactly the one Lana was wearing.. why was it here? Did Lana put him in the hotel room? Then Agent 7.7 noticed there were words on the handcuffs..


The Plot has been chosen

“Agent 7.7 then felt a stinging sensation on his neck, injected involuntarily, and went unconscious.”
He woke up in a daze, with his head swirling, vision was all blurry and there was a bright light shining on top of his face. He tried sitting up and put his palm to his face. That was when he realised that he was handcuffed to the railings on a bed.. a surgical bed?

He shook his head slightly and blinked his eyes a couple of times. His vision got a little better and he looked around him. He was in a room and next to the bed  surgical bed he noticed shiny little objects.. knives. The room was lit by a single lightbulb. He felt like he there was a metallic taste in his mouth and had the urge to throw up. But he fought it back, if not the vomit would end up on his face..

He frowned .

“What the – ?”

“I see you’re finally awake.” he heard a voice and quickly looked around for the source. A shadowy figure emerged into the light.. and it was Agent S? His old partner? 

“S, what are you doing?” Agent 7.7 asked.

“He’s just doing what he’s been told,” said another voice.. only this time it was soft forceful.. feminine. Agent 7.7 looked to the other side of the bed.

It was Lana.. and she was holding his Galaxy Tab 7.7..

Techcentral has given this new camera good reviews and calls it a narcissitic delight and i fully agree!

The biggest selling point of the MV800 is how easy, and fun, it is to use. Most people buying compact cameras will never even use the manual options it offers and, although the MV800 offers plenty of control, its automatic settings are superb and seldom require manual override... it’s a superb little camera that produces images that look as good as it does. – TechCentral

Grimbergen Blonde Beer Launch 651

Not many girls out there enjoy a beer. But i do! I find that it relaxes me.. despite the fact that i know it contains tonnnnnnss of calories. LOL!

I had the wonderful honour of attending the Grimbergen Blonde Beer Launch on Wednesday at Brussels Beer Cafe. I thoroughly enjoyed the Blonde Beer. But before anything lets talk about the Grimbergen brand!

Grimbergen’s origins can be traced to 1128 when St. Norbert founded the Abbey of Grimbergen in the village of Grimbergen near Brussels in Belgium. The Abbey’s Norbertine Fathers helped those in need, primarily by offering food, drink and shelter to passing pilgrims. The area surrounding the Abbey produced hops and barley of the highest quality and over a number of years the Father’s perfected a range of Grimbergen recipes that were eagerly drunk by patrons of the inn attached to the Abbey.

The license to brew and distribute the Grimbergen brand was acquired by The Carlsberg Group as a part of the Scottish and Newcastle acquisition. And that is how we got the chance to taste the exquisite Grimbergen beer!

When we first stepped in, a lot of bloggers were already there and immediately we were greeted with the most delicious array of food.

Here’s the Grimbergen Blonde Beer!

Check out the spread

Brussels Pork sausage, meat balls in cameralized onion sauce, calamari rings and chips platter. Oooo goodness me!

Sie yuk and Salad!

and the dish that just put my gym time to shame. Cheese Mussels with bacon strips and Blonde beer ! OMGOOSHH!!!!

 

Together with Mike Chang Brussels Beer Cafe Manager.

Time to camwhore for a bit!

Together with the excellent chef of the mussels!! Jochen Kern!

With Mr Joshua Ong

With Simon Seow

RedFM Late Night Love Songs Girls!

Was worried for a bit when i took a sip of the Blonde beer drink which is 6.5% alcohol, in comparison to the 5% of a normal beer. Upon letting it just slide down my throat i have to say it was a very very smooth texture. Very refreshing indeed!

And of course there has to be a video!


Thanks so much to Carlsberg and Brussels Beer Cafe for an excellent time!
