Singtel New Youth Plan

I don't know about you guys but I was 14 years old when I had my first mobile phone. I still remember I pasted a photo of my 'dream' phone in my diary, wishing that I will have it for my birthday. It looks like this:



Sony Ericsson was my first handphone and I fell in love with it instantly. During that time, it was all over the magazines, newspapers and even, on the internet. I thought it was cool to have one for myself as well. You know how as a kid, you feel so left out amongst your friends just because you don't have a phone and everyone else is flipping theirs, busy texting and you are just there like "Hmm... what should i do now?" 

After two years, it was time for me to re-contract but my mum wouldn't let me. She told me, "If you pass your N-level results with good grades, then I will present you an iPhone 4." Of course, with that promising statement that kept lingering at the back of my head, I never failed to feel motivated to study hard for my major examinations. True enough, I managed to pass with flying colours and that was when I had an iPhone 4 as my second phone. 

Then comes the major problem.  

Two years after that, as usual, it was time for me to re-contract. I was already eye-ing on the latest Samsung model which was the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The screen was huge and wide, and I thought to myself maybe it's time for a change. I guess I liked what I was looking for. I enjoy watching movies when I am on my way to a certain location to kill time and with the big screen that they are offering, it was definitely a big tick for me. I didn't even look at the other qualities the phone has.  

Unfortunately, it didn't last me more than two months of using that phone. Something unexpected happen. I was visiting the doctor one day and while waiting for my turn, I was scrolling through my Twitter timeline and all of a sudden, it blacked out on me. I was baffled and confused because I remembered charging my phone before I left home. I got so restless and impatient to rush home and charge my phone just to see if the battery was the problem. To no avail, it didn't work. My phone completely died on me. I feel so frustrated because I tried so hard to maintain the condition of my phone and it just had to be because of the system. Furthermore, it was still brand new.  

Shops after shops, and none of them could find a way to switch my phone back on unless I have to send for a complete repair that could cost me as good as a brand new phone and just like that, I was phone-less. I had to wait for another two years in order for me to get a new phone due to the re-contract system. Luckily, I still had my iPhone 4 with me and so, I sticked to it (but I was still mad and angry at how my Samsung died on me just-like-that!) 
It has been four years since I used an iPhone and it didn't last that long either but that, I could understand because it had went through a lot of ups and downs with me. From cracked screen, to chipped sides, to missing SIM card tray, to faulty home AND lock button,  to missing audio, to a major horrible state whereby the front glass crack and you can see through what's inside the phone, and after all that, it managed to survive till about four months ago, it died, peacefully (haha) 




I am very, very, very happy that I finally have a new phone that is only a few days old and I just can't seem to leave it alone. More details about it in the upcoming posts!  

There are definitely thousands and others of reasons why some consumers might not be satisfied with their phones and one of the popular problems would be the slow internet connection. I feel your pain. 

I experienced the exact same thing as what others would. I know how annoying it gets especially when you are in the train tunnel and you are halfway watching YouTube and it suddenly hangs or when you are talking on the phone and the connection cuts you off. I do get impatient some times. 

I have been using SingTel since I first had a phone and yes, I still do experience bad connection because the SingTel Youth Plan 6 years ago didn't offer me that much. It was still in 3G (not 4G) and the local data has adjusted to 2GB. That's the reason why my bills kept piling and piling due to excess data usage. Can't be blame because I didn't have sufficient local data and I didn't want to pay for extra GB because it could cost me quite a lot even if it's monthly (because it's wasn't included in the Youth Plan, that's the reason why the charges varies). 

Since my contract is ending soon (Ahhh! Finally, the time has come) in a few months’ time, I can finally re-contract to the latest Youth Plan which offers SO MANY GREAT THINGS COMPARED TO WHAT I WAS OFFERED SIX YEARS AGO!  

For some of you who are planning to buy a new phone or re-contract, this new Youth Plan would be something you might want to look at. Before deciding on which phone you want to purchase, you would want to look at which telcos offer you the best plan. Here is a chart that I sum up for you guys so that you can see a better picture for yourself.





SingTel has an exclusive benefit for the NEW sign ups (meaning it's your first time signing up for this plan) it is givng you a 10% off Lite and Value subscription + additional 1GB and free 2 months AMPed premium!  

The more students should purchase it as it is the cheapest amongst the three telcos in Singapore. Not forgetting, the additional local data so that means more internet surfing! You don't have to worry about receiving an increase amount of bills due to the excess local data charges. I know how painful your heart will feel to see that additional charges on the piece of paper just like how I received mine a few days back. It tallies up to $100 for the month! Not even funny :'( 

The good news doesn't end here. 

If you are a new customer to  Singtel and sign up for the Youth Plan via this link (www.singtelshop.com/asyihaams), you will receive an ADDITIONAL perks on top of whatever that was mentioned above and that includes $50 off ANY mobile phones (except for iPhone) and free 2GB additional data!!! This is so exciting ?! It feels like Christmas came in too early... Hahaha! Just by clicking the link to sign up and you can earn extra 2GB just like that??? It's definitely worth it, trust me.

Palette Nail Singapore #1

I am pretty excited that I finally settled for a nail sponsorship with PaletteNail after so long of searching high and low and rejecting offers just to find the right one. I thought that this would be a good nail parlour for to give my nails some pampering session. In addition, with this new nail sponsorship I had, it kinda complete my whole trilogy of beauty care.

Anyway, about last two months, I visited the nail parlour for the first time to get my nails done and it took me quite a while to find the right design that fits for me. Instagram, google and a few other websites helped me a lot in deciding which design I should choose.

Design #2: The Summer Breeze

Summertime with Hollyhoque & DazzleMe Lens

It's the summer season! Don't be surprise if you often see people wearing playsuits and long dresses in floral prints and bright, flashing colours. I personally am a huge fan of floral prints what more if the colours are outstanding. I wish I'm the one who is enjoying the summer holidays right now but the most I could do now is to just feel the mood only on weekends.

I love shopping on days when I am free which is only on weekends. But sometimes, even weekends, I don't even have time to shop! I'm always pack with events and shoots that I can't even have a day off to rest and hibernate myself. When I do, I release stress by shopping especially when there's Great Singapore Sale happening right now.

Recently, I visited an online shop boutique named "Hollyhoque" that can be found at Orchard Gateway, basement level (#B2-02). I picked two outfits that I thought would match the summer season! 





They sell all kinds of items, from clothes, to bags to accessories. It's like heaven when you stepped into the store. I got so lost, thinking to myself which rack should I begin with. There were quite a number of items that I fell in love with and wish I could just owned all of them but I try not to be greedy. I settled for two dresses that I thought would look good on me :')

The first one was the Flowers Neoprene Dress that can be found at the outlet itself. I instantly fell in love with how captivating the colours were and how it was designed with beautiful floral prints. I couldn't say No to it. 

I even wore the dress to the I.T Opening private event at Orchard Gateway last weekend. 

(Taken from @asyihaams instagram)





The second piece was the Go With The Flow Basic Maxi Dress in navy blue that cost $30.50. I chose this piece as I felt that it was simple yet gorgeous when accessorised with matching jewellery. It is versatile as well don't you think so? 

When you are on a date, you can pair it with nice pair of heels and shimmering necklaces and bracelets and at times, when you feel like you want to dress down and head to the beach, just simply pair it with comfortable slippers and sunhat. 


I suggest you readers head down to the location itself to witness all the items that are well displayed in the store. It will be open from 12 noon to 9:30pm. Don't forget to quote "Asyiha" for 10% off storewide only at Orchard Gateway. Discount valid till 15th of July.

With all the outfits ready to go, how about dressing up by including a suitable pair of contact lenses that could match your outfit of the day? I read up about a few reviews written about DazzleMe Lens and I thought why not give it a try? No doubt they look really unique.

Since I'm always very curious and feel the need to experiment different types of contact lenses, I decided to get two pairs of it from DazzleMe Contact Lens Shop that is originally from Thailand which provides delivery service to Singapore!

Being the curious girl I am, I have always wanted to try wearing contact lenses that could enlarge your pupil. You know how Japanese girls always wearing their contact lenses, making their eyes look so big and huge like a doll??? Never have I ever thought I would try using it just to see how I will look like. Not that bad actually... Hahaha! 

Besides that, I feel uncomfortable wearing coloured contact lenses out (except for natural brown). My eyes look so weird :/ Hahaha! But this time, I wanted to try Grey because every time when I feel like purchasing it at the Optical Shop, I always have second thoughts to it. 

"Should I just waste my money to buy the grey contacts and see how I look like and if it's ugly i just throw..."

Hahaha!!! 

Now that I finally get to try it, I can stop wondering about how I will look like with it. Hahaha! I am still not used to it though :/


Big Forest Grey 




Galaxy Brown



Selfies~


I got to admit that it was worth trying the contact lenses. I really like how it doesn't look very fake and unreal.

The contact lenses are available both in 00 and power lens (-0.50 to -10.00) in more than 150 models. 
For the price of lens:
If you buy 1 pair, it will cost 230 baht (~9.2 SG$)
If you buy 2 pairs, it will cost 200 baht each (~8 SG$ each)
If you buy 3 pairs, it will cost 180 baht each (~7.2 SG$ each)
If you buy 5 pairs, it will cost 170 baht each (~6.8 SG$ each)
If you buy 10 pairs, it will cost 160 baht each (~6.4 SG$ each)
**1 SG$ is approximately 25 baht
The more you buy, the cheaper it is


Moreover, you can get the same price of the first order in the next order even it is only 1 pair. For example, if you buy 5 pairs this time, you get 170 baht each. Next time you buy only 1 pair, you can get 170 baht per pair automatically

For the shipping cost:

There are 2 types of shipping (by air), the tracking number is available in both shipping.
EMS (reach SG within 2-3 business days): If your order is from 1 to 10 pairs, the shipping cost will be the same at the minimum rate.
>> the total shipping cost will be 550 baht (~22 SG$)
Registered (reach SG within 7-8 business days): there are two types of shipping cost rate. We separate in 1-5 pairs and 6-10 pairs.
>> For 5-10 pairs, the total shipping cost will be 400 baht (~16SG$)

*If your order is more than 10 pairs, the shipping cost per pair will be cheaper.
