Haircut! Anyone?

(Copied from my old blog iamnicabell.wordpress.com. I am moving my blog!!!)

I AM A PLUS SIZE AND I NEED A HAIRCUT!

Greeting season is coming, are you getting a haircut? I know I do!

I have been donning layers for years now and I am thinking to cut it blunt! My reason is simple, layered hair is easier to dry out! My hair is healthy, I don't have split ends or yellowish hair ends or dried hair. But I do have that before and I will be freaking out IF I had them. Blunt cut will prevent those. But with my current body size, (I used to be skinny before), I found out that blunt cut would not flatter plus size body. So I might cut the U shape hair. But I often ask my stylist to do the decision for me in the end.

I would want a long bangs this time because my hairline is pushing up! EEEKK! What do you call that? thinning? Not sure! Haha! My last long blunt bangs was  on 2008 for couple of months and changed to side swept bangs till now. I think this is the time I should change my bangs for fresher look. I have a pair of beautiful eyes (at least I think so), So a long blunt bangs would make my eye POP! It also would gives a fresh young look!

I might not color my hair or straighten my hair this year. But It depend how my hair behave. I have naturally straight with a tiny bit if kinky hair on the hair ends. And if the kinks kick out, I will definitely straighten it. I am a perm virgin. I haven't perm my hair before. I am not sure if I would look good with perm anyway

Accident Happens~

(Copied from my old blog iamnicabell.wordpress.com. I am moving my blog!!!)

Dear Lord, you have been my friend, my saviour and my father. You listened when I pray for you in hard time. And I am extremely thank you when you save my brother life and let him be strong in this hard time that he is having. And my family is grateful for those who came to visit my brother at the hospital, your prayer, wishes and your moral support. It will be hard without al of our out there.

I was not in any good relationship with my brother who got into the accidents. We always fought for some minor things and he is ALWAYS the one who started it. And as I grow up, his temper got worse. The we got into this really huge fight one day and we become estranged while still living in the same house. We go through years like that and one day, my mom told me that he was diagnosed with thyroid probs which explained his bad tempers. But as stubborn as I am, I refuse to forget how bad he treated me for all those years I was growing up. But, I am finally glad that we were able to close that old chapter. His accident is a painful lesson for all of us. We talked and joked and laughed. He seems fine under his thyroid medication.

My brother got into an accidents last week. That explains my absence in this blog. I have been busy helping my mom to send her food while she was watching my brother at the hospital while juggling with my work. It has been an exhausting week for my mother, boyfie and I. My father did help much which kind of frustrating for us. Don't get me wrong, he did help, but not much. He could have take turn with mother to take care of my brother at the hospital. But he stay at home instead. WTH? He was embarrassed that my brother got an accident? WTF?! Its definitely not his fault that the accident happened! It was the other party's fault and they also report the police saying they were at fault!

He even switched off his cell because his relatives were calling him asking if the rumour about my brother was in an accident was true or not!? Why would you do that? Is it wrong that they would want to be concerned? Is it a great embarrassment if they were to worry? We, who were at the hospital have to look like some idiots when they ask us why you did like what you did.
I can only jot till here. I am super tired I can get a whole long vampire slumber now.

Till then.

image

image
An up and down volume button, rotation lock, and a covered space for the simcard & MiniSD

image
5.0MP cammy with FLASH! AWW!

image
Dolby Mobile sound speakers

image
Handsomely made with brushed Aluminium.

I have to say, this is one handsome device!

Everything on the front is glossy with brushed aluminium on the back!
It has a small camera on the front, just left side beside of the screen;
power button, 3.5mm headphone jack & a HDMI port on the left side of the tab;
power charger port, a small reset hole, mini USB port and a standard USB port on the right side of the tab;
volume button, rotation lock button, a covered slot to housed the MicroSD and simcard on top of the tab;
and a docking port at the bottom of the tab.
Not to forget the 5.0 megapixel cam, 2 speakers & a shiny ACER logo we have on the back of the tab!

SPECIFICATION:-
OS - Android 3.0 HoneyComb (sounds yummy enough eh?)
Processor - 1GHz nVidia Tegra 2
RAM - 1GB DDR2
Screen Size - 10.1"
Connectivity - WWANHSDPA, 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1
Battery 3260 may (I must warn, the battery doesn't last all day. Even with the apps killer!)
Dimension - 260mm x 177mm x 13.3mm
Weight - 777g (the first time I carry it out of the box, I was shock how heavy it feels on my hands)

NicaBell say:~
Touch screen respond is nice, but there are times I have difficulties tiping.
Game playing is marvolous! Games resolution especially games with lots of graphic look great!
Wide view ANGLE, BUT! I don't anyone would enjoy using this tab outdoor. Super glossy under direct light! Ouch!
You will have no worry with audio as it gives out pretty load sound!
I was let down of the battery life. 6 hours? For real? I have to carry the charger wherever I go.
Like I said, its quite heavy. For me at least.

I am not going to say I am dissapointed with the ACER Iconia Tab A501, but I would say it is good enough considering its value which is about RM1700++. This is not a must have product and you can get an ACER laptop with few hundred RM more. But this tab is one of the cheaper but still handsome device out there.
Boyfie & I must thank DIGI Telecommunication Sdn Bhd for this lovely prize. I have been using DIGI line since 2006 and it is the best mobile line if you are on tight budget. Boyfie love it so much but don't have much idea how this thing can benefits him.

I am posting this post with the WordPress apps for Android on this tab. I can't wait to see how my post looks like!

(UPDATED on 12/11/2011, 20:38 Malaysian Time ~ I can't help myself to edit this post with a computer. It's quite hard to edit it with the WordPress app for Android. They should work on something about the uploading media section.)

That is all for today!

10 Shoes I Must OWN!!

(Copied from my old blog iamnicabell.wordpress.com. I am moving my blog!!!)

Yes! Women love love love love LOVE shoes.

There is a proverb saying: "Good shoes will bring you to good places." And I believe it is true!
Shoes are not just some clothing wear that we must use to protect our feet from harmful surface; Shoes are accessories!!

Women have so many types of shoes. There shoes for spring, summer, fall and summer season! On top of that, we have shoes for casual wearformal wear, to the beach (in this case FLIP-FLOPS!), sport wear, etcs.
I do not own to many pairs. I have 3 for work, 1 for formal wear, 2 canvas shoes and 1 flip-flops. - 7! See, I can count seven with my fingers so that is not a lot OBVIOUSLY. LoL!

I was inspired by a shopping blog in Yahoo! here

No. 1: ADIDAS Sneakers/ Sport Wear

I have been a big fan of Adidas but never bought one. They are expensive here but I adore their shoes!! Especially their Adidas Original line (Adidas Trefoil).

Adidas Originals – Easter Gazelle + Graph Stan Smith

Adidas Originals – Easter Gazelle + Graph Stan Smith

Adidas Supertar II Hearts

Adidas Women's Microbounce Etana Running Shoe





















No. 2: Knee or OVER Knee Boots!!!

Dang! These boots are awesome! Sorry, I never wore one so I am so excited even looking a picture of them!! >.<

 

No 3: Ankle Boots

Ankle boots are rocking women feet this past few years. It used to be embarrassing to wear ankle boots before because most girls wore them with un-match outfits. (if your are unable to wear them with your clothes correctly, you will look silly because your legs seems shorter and unbalance with your torso.)




No. 4: Shoes with STUDS/ Beads

Studs and beads on heels are getting popular nowadays. I want to be in the hype too!
 
no. 5: Animal PRINTS

I just don't know how to use them before. But a friend teach me to wear simple clothing with jeans or 1 color clothing to rock this type of shoes if you don't want to take risk. (because the shoes is an enough risk. LMAO!)


No. 6:  Strappy 5 inch High Heels!! Eeeek!!!

I only use 3 inch heels not because I'm afraid of height. I just don't dare to take risk. LoL! But one of these days, I WILL BUY IT!
 

No. 7: Unique BRIGHT Colored Style Heels

They are stylish, and BRIGHT! I wonder where can I get this kind of shoes in KK shops/ mall. T.T


No. 8: GO Nude!!! 

I never own one. It's not easy to find here as well. Because Malaysian LOVE colors!!!

 

No. 9: "Not Just Black" BLACK Heels 

Plain ol' Black is boring. So seeing these kind of black heels are tempting. isn't it?

 

No. 10: Lather Pattern Heels 

They might be Synthetic, PU, or real lather. But Lather Pattern sure gives out the classiness on you^^

 

There goes my 10 shoes I must own - before I.. get old? LoL! Gee.. these shoes makes me drool~ SERIOUSLY!!!

NicaBell: Halloween Horror

(Copied from my old blog iamnicabell.wordpress.com. I am moving my blog!!!)

Its a sad sad Halloween here in KK.

We Sabahan, well actually Malaysia do not celebrate Halloween. But we do accept the western culture and thinks that Holloween is a season for socialize. We don't do "trick or treat" though.

But I don't think that many will enjoy this year Halloween in KK for what happened at the Shell gas station opposites the Kota Kinabalu International Airport, around 5:30pm to 5:40pm, 31 Oct 2011.

A mishap happened where an oil tanker run to the front two coaches of a train.

There were reports that 18 people died, some reported 21 people died, some also reported no casualties but 6 people are injured. But I saw a friend gave an UPDATE:-
Hj Zain the railway GM has confirmed that there is no casualties on the train hit oil tanker incident in front of Kepayan Shell Station. Only one injured leg broken after falling down in a haste to escape and the oil tanker driver is safe too.

But the accident looked severe, it scares people. I was shaken and get teary eyes just looking at the pictures and videos posted.

May God Bless Sabah.
