How It’s Like to Travel During This Pandemic

Sharing my new video project about people, advocacy, and current events. In this first monthly episode, I speak with four people who recently travelled overseas during this pandemic. Each person narrates their experiences at the airport, on the plane, and in quarantine at their destination. Plus, we hear how it’s like to get tested and what their travel tips are during this time.

Wherever you are in the world, be safe. 🙂

iPhone 12 unboxing… while drinking soju

Gaaah. I filmed this a month ago. But I only got to editing it over the weekend. I’ve had an iPhone 7 since 2016… so getting an upgrade in 2020 is WORTH IT. Face ID? Charging without a cord? Portrait mode that WORKS? Those are no longer strange and foreign concepts for me. Lol.

Enjoy the video. It’s NOT meant to be taken seriously. 😛

Drink moderately.

Unwrapping Perk Coffee Drip Bags

With more time indoors and away from crowds, I wanted to try a subscription-based coffee service. A colleague recommended I try Perk, which delivers freshly roasted coffee straight to your doorstep. Plus, an opportunity to try using a coffee drip bag for the first time.

Here’s a new video, enjoy!

Unboxing: Rode VideoMic Me-L Directional Microphone for Apple Devices

I got myself a directional microphone for my iPhone!

Because, like much of the world right now, I’m stuck at home… I turned it into an unboxing video. The microphone was originally delivered to my office address… but had to call the courier to send it over to my residential.

Here’s the video and the audio test:

I didn’t notice much of a difference HAHA. Likely because of the testing environment. A lavalier microphone trumps a directional one when it comes to audio recording. That’s just how I see hear it. But I don’t have a lavalier microphone right now. I’d love to use this if I’m recording video on my iPhone at a crowded place. WHICH ISN’T HAPPENING ANYTIME SOON. 🙂

I’ve made two other unboxing videos to date: Toastwire 2020 Calendar and the GoPro Hero 8 Black.

Are you using audio equipment? Which ones would you suggest? Let us know in the comments.

Episode 19: My Typical Weekend in Singapore

I finally got around to documenting what a weekend in Singapore looks like for me. Not all weekends are the same. This filming was unplanned. So my Saturday was stay-at-home while my Sunday was at the nearby beach. I enjoyed making this video. Hope you like it too! I provide timestamps on both Saturday and Sunday.

Unboxing: GoPro Hero 8 Black (2020)

I’m excited to test this out! I bought it at VivoCity and it came with a Lunar New Year bundle which includes a spare battery and a 3-way “grip, arm, and tripod”.

Here’s an unboxing video I made. Enjoy!

An instructional video.

Why do I make these videos?

  • They are my spark when I’m in an undiscovered country.
  • I want to stay sharp as a video editor.
  • Share my voice.
  • Tell stories.

Enjoy! ❤

Midnight cravings

You’re binging on Netflix. You suddenly get hungry. You grab some garlic and olive oil. Fry bacon slices. Boil pasta. So you can fulfil a craving.

Nothing fancy about the recipe as it’s pretty straightforward. ❤
