Durex: 5 Good Reasons Why You Need the World’s No.1 Brand's Thinnest Condom

7:32 pm Deelicious 4 Comments


Yes, it's official, Durex release its thinnest condom. But before I go into the juicy part of why you need it... I need to share this with you.


Yes, the biggest news of the year. Thanks.

Now, here's the bad news.

More than 1 million people around the world contract a sexually-transmitted infections (STIs) every day.




That's approximately 357 million infections every year.



Yes, STIs can be transmitted by one partner to another.1 If you think you might be at risk of contracting an STI, protect yourself and be safe. One of the most effective ways to reduce the risk of STIs is to practise safe sex by using condom.

Durex, the world’s No. 1 brand for condom has recently launched its thinnest ever condom without compromising the protection against STIs. With Durex Invisible, the brand has outdone itself with a strong commitment towards innovation. Designed with both partners in mind, it promises to provide the most intimate experience that soars above and beyond expectations, taking pleasure to new heights (Yay!!!).

The reason why Durex’s latest condom is to address on Malaysian consumers’ low usage of condoms and the perception that a condom decreases sensitivity during sex.

Based on the Durex Sexual Wellbeing Global Survey 2011-2012, condom penetration in Malaysia market comes in at only 5.3%, which is one of the lowest in the world.

Many Malaysians still prefer to go with traditional contraceptive techniques like the rhythm method (periodic abstinence), withdrawal, or even choose not to use any form of protection at all. Lack of knowledge and their belief in sexual myths also contribute to this problem, as seen in the 2015 Malaysian Youth Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) Survey. Why lah people, why?


In fact, one of the main reasons is the perception that wearing a condom decreases sensitivity during sex. However, all these only increase the risk of contracting STIs through unprotected sex.

For Malaysia, the fear of being labelled has led to 10% of young Malaysians saying that they would rather not seek medical attention even if they have been exposed to risk of STI (wow, Malaysia Boleh, SERIOUSLY?)

Hello..... this can potentially leads to a "STIs" domino effect, where somebody get infected and they in turn pass it on to somebody else. Eeeeeeuuuuuuwwwwww!!!!


As such, prevention through protected sex is always better than cure. Consistent use of condom provides substantial protection against the acquisition of many STIs, including statistically significant reduction of risk against HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, and syphilis.2, 3 & 4

BANG! Hard facts eh? But it's very relevant, can't ignore that, right?


So yes.... Why you need Durex Invisible?

Here's 5 unique innovations to make your "intimate" experiences more sensuous and safer.

It's Ultra-Thin
Durex’s thinnest ever, designed for a more natural feeling to heighten sensitivity.

It's naturally soft.
As soft as the feeling of skin, so you can indulge in real pleasure.

It has amazing lubrication
With extra lube for her/his/anything in between... it's for the ultimate comfort and enjoyment. No friction, no stickiness.

It has pleasurable fitting
52mm nominal width for a closer fit and enhanced intimacy.

It has a pleasant scent
Natural woodsy scent for a more pleasurable intimate experience. No more stinky rubber smells, yucks!


This is probably how it feels. Yupe....
Durex Invisible is available at major pharmacies and leading online stores in two variants: Extra Sensitive which comes in packs of 3 pieces (RM14.45 per pack) and 10 pieces (RM41.95 per pack); while Extra Lubricated (10 pieces at RM41.95 per pack).

The video on.....well, Durex asking you to be responsible. But I do think this situation apply to all of us very often, don't you think?

So, wrap your asset, protect it well because when you do... you are protecting your partner(s) as well. No harm having some fun but be safe. For more information, kindly check out Durex Malaysia’s website or Facebook page.

Cremorlab | Review of Cremorlab Range of Skincare

5:56 pm Deelicious 0 Comments

After trying a few of their products, I like this best. This fresh water gel, it's just simply light, easy to absorb and no sticky feeling, almost immediately upon application
I am intrigued by Korean skincare - yes, some are pretty fancy but some are just simple. But simple doesn't mean it's not effective.

I had the chance to attend to an event by MUSE by Watsons (invited by Butterfly Project Malaysia) and I have to say, I like how simple, is being more.

Basically, the range of products by Cremorlab, with T.E.N.

What is T.E.N? It is water composed of tiny mineral particles smaller than your very own pores, blended with essential natural ingredients which then delivered to your skin in the most optimal proportion, effectively.

Where do they take this water from?

It is a thermal water, 1,100m below sea level in a small town of Geumjin, Gangwon province. Beneath the earth's surface, the secret water has minerals, in its purest form that undergone natural purification for a very long time.

You probably asking now.... "How long?"

Answer: 260 millions years.

That's right - 260 millions years, straight into your skin.

Even the images send to me for feature is simply....gorgeous.

Cremorlab foam cleanser
This is Essence Tonic with T.E.N


This is the HERO - Cremorlab Mineral Treatment Essence - it's almost scentless, yet felt gentle on skin
I tried it for at least two weeks - although I have to say, you still need to use moisturization after application. Some toner or pre-serum have immediate effect of hydrating so your skin won't feel dry but this need moisturizer after application, but fair enough, it's a toner and pre-moisturization step, so to me, it's ok.
The mood shot of some of the main products, including sun protection and moisturizer


Full range products from Cremorlab






I just had to post this video up. you can see the bubbles just "grow" on your skin, working it way to moisture your skin as it react with the oxygen in the air.

Let's just watch the making of the ads, shall we?








And of course, for more wonderful videos of Cremorlab, click here and FB page and IG. Cremorlab's range of skincare is exclusively available in Watsons and MUSE by Watsons - check out their FB here.

Enjoy!

Announcement: Samsung Galaxy Note7 Exchange Program

10:52 am Deelicious 0 Comments


Yes, definitely very important for all Samsung Galaxy Note7 current users.

Well, you guess it.

Below is the official statement released on Samsung's website:

Just over a week ago, Samsung Electronics announced a global replacement program for the Galaxy Note7 as a precautionary measure due to a battery cell issue. Since then, we have been working hard to expedite product shipments in order to fulfill that exchange program and reduce any inconvenience for our customers. During the past week, we understand that there are concerns from our customers and we wish to emphasize the importance of exchanging the product.

"Our number one priority is the safety of our customers. We are asking users to power down their Galaxy Note7s and exchange them as soon as possible," says DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. "We are expediting replacement devices so that they can be provided through the exchange program as conveniently as possible and in compliance with related regulations. We sincerely thank our customers for their understanding and patience."

Although there have been only a small number of reported incidents, Samsung is taking great care to provide customers with necessary support. Samsung has identified the affected inventory and stopped sales and shipments of those devices. We are also collaborating with national regulatory bodies.

In Malaysia, customers who have Galaxy Note7 devices can replace their current device with a new device beginning 29th September 2016 onwards. Customers are encouraged to contact the Samsung Malaysia Careline at 1800-88-7799 for further assistance.

06 September 2016 - As the customers’ safety is our absolute priority, the replacement initiatives for Samsung Galaxy Note7 in Malaysia will take place from 29th September 2016 onwards. Further details are as follows: -

1. Replacement date: From 29th September 2016 onwards
2. Replacement Location: Customers may return their existing Galaxy Note7 and collect their new Galaxy Note7 at the place of purchase (original place of collection)
3. Replacement Time: 10.00am till 10.00pm
4. Replacement Conditions: Customers are required to bring the full box set including a charger and cable; headset and USB Connector

For more enquiries, please call Samsung Malaysia Careline at 1800-88-7799.

So yes, for my "restart" problem and phone get hot after using a while..... I guess I can get it replaced (for free, well, I paid for it). Apparently, it come with a new set of warranty, meaning warranty starts from the day you collect your phone. Also, apparently it has screen crack warranty for a year too + screen protector! Not sure if this is the same for everyone but.... yeah, please call the careline and ask.

I had a bad experience when the person called me, but after reporting the incident (all new users of Galaxy Note7 is also a time bomb now), Samsung Malaysia swiftly rectify the problem with a follow up and managed to answer all questions that I have, which is important and rightfully done. Thanks Samsung for acting quickly.

For affected consumers, my advise is to get this sort out ASAP, so do call the careline.
Despite all, I think I will stick to this phone, why? After using it for quite awhile, I do like it. Like a lot.
I have yet to fully review the phone. But it is so far, not a disappointment, especially the built in functions for camera, long lasting battery (despite the battery issue, ironically) and the retina recognition function is pretty cool.

Apple: iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus, claimed to be the best and most advanced iPhone, EVER.

7:27 pm Deelicious 1 Comments

Yes, the news is out.

*this is like... singing wrecking ball to Samsung*


So, yeah, it is announced at San Francisco that  iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, is the best, most advanced iPhone ever, packed with unique innovations, with features like the new advanced camera systems (summary: 2 cameras that work like one), more power and performance with the best battery life *take that Samsung, bang!* ever in an iPhone, a new kind of immersive stereo speakers, wide colour system from camera to display, two new beautiful finishes, and is the first water and dust resistant iPhone (it's their first though, nothing new lah...)


My reaction on water and dust resistant for iPhone. I am not sorry.

Colours pun quite nice...

News is.... iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in more than 25 countries beginning Friday, 16 September.

Watch the commercial here:


(Psssst, if you are too lazy busy to read everything.....
scroll down to the bottom to watch the "summary" video! You're welcome!)

Let me just quickly quote Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing:


“The completely redesigned cameras shoot incredible photos and videos day or night, the A10 Fusion chip is the most powerful chip on any smartphone while delivering the best battery life ever in an iPhone, and an entirely new stereo speaker system provides twice the sound, all within the first water and dust resistant iPhone.”
iPhone 7 Jet Black!
Let's talk about some of the features here....


The New Advanced Camera Systems:


iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus take the world’s most popular camera and make it even better with entirely new camera systems. The 12-megapixel camera includes optical image stabilization on both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and a larger ƒ/1.8 aperture and 6-element lens enable brighter, more detailed photos and videos, and a wide color capture allows for more vibrant colors with more detail. iPhone 7 Plus features the same 12-megapixel wide angle camera as iPhone 7 and adds a 12-megapixel telephoto camera that together offer optical zoom at two times and up to 10 times digital zoom for photos.

Coming later this year, the dual 12-megapixel cameras also enable a new depth-of-field effect, using both cameras on iPhone 7 Plus to capture images, while sophisticated technology including Machine Learning separates the background from the foreground to achieve amazing portraits once possible only with DSLR cameras. (*GASP*)



Surprised!!!

For those iPhone fans.... here's additional info for you on the camera advancements, which includes:
  1. New Apple-designed Image Signal Processor, which processes over 100 billion operations on a single photo in as little as 25 milliseconds, resulting in incredible photos and videos.
  2. New 7-megapixel FaceTime® HD camera with wide color capture, advanced pixel technology and auto image stabilization for even better selfies; and
  3. New Quad-LED True Tone® flash that is 50 percent brighter than iPhone 6s including an innovative sensor that detects the flickering in lights and compensates for it in videos and photos.

Its Performance and Battery Life:

The new custom-designed Apple A10 Fusion chip features a new architecture that powers these innovations, making it the most powerful chip ever in a smartphone, while also getting more time between charges with the longest battery life ever in an iPhone (not sure if this can beat Samsung). The A10 Fusion’s CPU now has four cores, seamlessly integrating two high-performance cores that run up to two times faster than iPhone 6, and two high-efficiency cores that are capable of running at just one-fifth the power of the high-performance cores.

Gamers and visualizers behold! Graphics performance is also more powerful, running up to three times faster than iPhone 6 at as little as half the power, enabling a new level of gaming and professional apps. Woots!

Both phones include support for up to 25 LTE bands, for the best worldwide roaming in the industry, and LTE Advanced for three times faster data rates than iPhone 6 at up to 450 Mbps. 

An Amazing Audio Experience:



New stereo speakers offer amazing and immersive sound that is two times louder than iPhone 6s, offering increased dynamic range of sound and a higher quality speakerphone. The new iPhone comes with EarPods with Lightning connector to deliver incredible sound, as well as a 3.5 mm headphone jack adapter that allows customers to use old headphones and accessories.
I am not sure if I really like the design but Samsung's earpiece is pretty cool too. But, diff taste, diff preference!

New AirPods, Apple’s innovative new wireless headphones, weave simplicity and technology together to reinvent the wireless experience making headphones easy to use. Featuring the new Apple W1 chip, AirPods have extremely efficient wireless communication for a better connection, improved sound and industry-leading battery life. AirPods harness the power of Siri, allowing you to access your favorite personal assistant with just a double tap.

Design That Makes a Splash:

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come in a gorgeous design in silver, gold and rose gold finishes and introduce two all-new black finishes, a beautiful black finish that has an anodized matte appearance, and an innovative jet black finish that has a deep, high-gloss look. The new jet black finish is accomplished through an innovative nine-step process of anodization and polish for a uniform, glossy finish. An entirely reengineered enclosure results in a water resistant iPhone offering protection like never before against spills, splashes and dust.

The new iPhone features the brightest, most colorful Retina HD display ever in an iPhone, now with a wide color gamut for cinema-standard colors, greater color saturation and the best color management in the smartphone industry. An all-new, advanced, solid-state Home button on iPhone 7 is designed to be durable and responsive, and working in tandem with the new Taptic Engine, provides more precise and customizable tactile feedback.

Featuring iOS 10 (the Biggest iOS Release Ever):

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come with iOS 10, the biggest release ever of the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. iOS 10 introduces a huge update to Messages that delivers more expressive and animated ways to message friends and family, the ability for Siri to do more by working with apps, new ways to interact with apps and even more places to use 3D Touch, beautifully redesigned Maps, Photos, Apple Music and News apps, and the Home app, delivering a simple and secure way to manage home automation products in one place.

iOS 10 also opens up incredible opportunities for developers with Siri, Maps, Phone and Messages APIs, allowing customers to do more than ever with the apps they love to use.
