Philips BT3206 (Series 3000) Beard Trimmer, Is It Any Good?

Good Morning Ladies and Gents,
Those of you whom are Beard Lovers have been waiting for this write-up since the day I posted images of the BT3206 Beard Trimmer on my Facebook and Instagram. The latest from Phillips 3000 Series Trimmers and Shavers.



It's been a long time coming but after about two weeks of putting this through its paces, I've finally come to the conclusion that although it is priced more towards the high end of the scale, It's features, usability and durability certainly outweigh the price factor on numerous levels.


Among the features that stand out most are it's Innovative Lift and Trim system which lifts and captures more low-lying hairs with every path, the Zoom Wheel which gives you the flexibility to choose up to 10 length setting from 0.5mm to 10mm and it's insane self sharpening stainless steel blades which allows you to get the same precise results every time.

Marketed as a Beard Trimmer, the Philips BT3206 isn't only capable of trimming but it has also acted as an emergency shaver for me when I had to attend a last minute event and looked like a Persian foot rug. LOL. Though I was not able to get a perfectly clean and smooth shave out of the BT3206, it was definitely better than I had expected.



So, after a good two weeks or so of using the BT3206 I'm going to give you my honest opinion on it and you judge for yourself. Out of the box you get the BT3206 unit with a tiny brush to clean the blades, a power cord for charging, a warranty card and a user manual. Based on my searches online, the UK version also comes with a cute little carry bag.




The BT3206 Beard Trimmer boasts a whopping 60 minute run time on a single charge, however I have been using it once every two days for around 10 minutes each time (Because I'm a descendant of Chewbaca) LOL. So that's already 1 hour and 10 minutes, and I find the battery still has enough juice in it to probably run for another 3 cycles (maybe). To add to that, I haven't charged the BT3206 since the day I received it from Philips Malaysia over two and a half weeks ago. Now that is truly AMAZING.
LOL! Yes this guy. hahaha...
Remember I mentioned one of the features the BT3206 Beard Trimmer boasted about was it ability to self sharpen the blades? Well, believe me it's true. Just about 2 days ago, I accidentally cut my self because the blades are super duper sharp. Painful? YES!  But it just goes to show that what was said isn't just a marketing shenanigan of sorts.

Durability is something that was not mentioned in the brochure however I find the BT3206's build quality to be extremely good. I've dropped it twice already and there isn't a single visible scar nor any loose / rattling parts. (Yeah, I can be a klutz sometimes).

Owww.... Did I mention that the 10 length setting work great!!! Initially I wanted to test out it's ability to be used as an emergency shaver and decided to put it to it's lowest setting. Guess what? Voila!!! Perfectly trimmed beard and almost clean shaved look.

Today, I generally use Philips Beard Trimmer to trim my goatee when it starts going GROOT on me if you know what I mean. Every bearded man knows that no matter how perfect a goatee you have, there will always be the ROGUE ONE. (Ok, so i'm a StarWars fan. Sue me!).


FINAL VERDICT?
Priced at 175.00 MYR, I feel the price is a bit steep. Nevertheless, if you have the extra bucks then the BT3206 Beard Trimmer by Philips would definitely be a steal. Plus it comes with a 2 YEAR WORLDWIDE WARRANTY! What more could you ask for?
Everything from the build quality right up to the precision and battery life was more than I had expected to be honest. I'm a believer now.

To find out more on the Philips BT3206 Beard Trimmer or other Series 3000 products, you may visit Philips Malaysia's Website.

Till next time. Have a good one folks.

KBBA9 Photophone Workshop Hosted By Sony Mobile Malaysia!


Writing is only one of the many components that makes up a blogger or social media influencer. People these days are easily influenced by things they see rather than things they read, hence having the ability to capture stunning photo's and content is a must.
But honestly though,  how many of us actually have the the financial capability to acquire high end camera's like DSLR's and Mirror-less cameras? Ranging anywhere from a couple of thousand up to tens of thousands respectively.

We all resort to what is easiest to carry and the most handy, as and when the need arises. Right?
What am I referring to?

The trusty Mobile Phone of course! With the technological advancements we have today, a Smartphone camera is more than sufficient to capture images on the go as well has having the ability to reach your audience quicker than having to transfer, sort, edit and upload these files to social media if you were using a conventional camera.

No doubt, having a DSLR or Mirrorless camera allows you the flexibility to shoot sharper and more vivid images. Is this truly necessary? Well, YES! If photography is your day job.

Obviously we all love to snap photo's of anything and everything that tickles or fancy. Often we harp on the fact that the images we capture aren't up to par with those taken from conventional camera's. That's exactly what I did too... 


On the 10th of February, Sony Mobile Malaysia was kind enough to have a photophone workshop for us (KBBA9) at MaTiC (Malaysian Tourism Centre. The workshop was held to help us better understand the fundamental basics of photgraphy. Understanding the use of things like Aperture, Shutter Speed, Metering and ISO.
By being able to understand and implement this knowledge when photographing, we were not only able to capture better images but it also reduced the amount of time spent selecting or recapturing an image. A lot is also saved because you dont need to do much editing to get the perfect picture.

The class was conducted by Mr. Rahman Roslan who is an award winning Documentary Photographer. Though being an expert in his field, his explanations were pretty simple and easy to grasp. Almost everything was explained using normal day to day terminology instead of jargons.



To be honest, this was my first time attending such a workshop.
Boy what an amazing experience it was. It's when you attend workshops like these that you realize that there are actually things that you have been doing all along, you just never knew why or how it affects you engagement.

The rule of thirds or the simple use of lines for instance can create a whole lot of difference. As explained by Mr. Rahman, the human eye is somehow trained to respond and focus to such things. It automatically attracts the human eye to your subject. A rather interesting fact if you ask me.



These are just some of the shot that I was able to get shortly after the first session of the workshop.
I myself find it hard to believe that these photos were actually taken from my mobile phone camera. Do you?

Kick Start The New Year With Hard Rock Cafe's Rock'N Bowls!


Hard Rock Cafe is a name that is synonym with the likes of Biker Blokes and the Elite when it comes to good old fashioned wine and dine.
This year, Hard Rock is ringing in the New Year with some fresh flavors and ingredients with the introduction of it's Rock'N Bowls.


Rock'N Bowls is a limited time offering which features 3 New Rice Bowls.
Starting from the 10th of January 2018 up until the 13th of March 2018, Hard Rock will be expanding it's menu to incorporate the new offerings. What this actually means is that they will be turning the ordinary rice bowls into extraordinary rock star level meals with a myriad of different flavors, spices and a fusion of both Western and Asian.

I was privileged to be amongst the first few to sample these wonderful works of culinary delight.


The 3 New Bowl's or as I call them "bundles of joy" are aimed to provide Hard Rock Cafe's patrons and guests with a special treat for their palate. 
These gastronomical Bowl's are:


Southwest Meatball Bowl:
Brown rice bowl cooked with a blend of Cajun and Southwest seasonings, topped with hot meatballs, honey sriracha glaze, chili lime crema, grated cotija cheese and crispy, seasoned tortilla straws.


BBQ Shrimp Noodle Bowl:
Rice noodle bowl served with grilled shrimp in an Asian BBQ sauce mixed with shredded napa cabbage, sesame soy glaze, sliced green onions, white sesame seeds, freshly squeezed lime juice and fried won tons.


Chili Lime Chicken Bowl:
Brown rice bowl topped with grilled chili pepper lime chicken, Cajun seasoning, diced avocado, black beans, roasted corn, grated cotija cheese, chili lime crema, chopped cilantro and nacho seasoned tortilla straws.

The fusion of flavors was most definitely something different, the mix of peppers and lime was really tantalizing to say the least.
Of course this was the highlight of the event, nonetheless as is accustom to Hard Rock style hospitality  we were also treated to some good old favorites like the Classic Nachos and The Jumbo Combo.
By the end of all that, i could barely walk. LOL!



Owwww.... and lets not forget everyone's favourite!!!! Desert....



What better way to help wash down all those calories than some healthy, wholesome mocktail juices right? Im a huge fan of mango's so obviously mine was the Mango Berry Cooler. hehehe.


Later that  night while enjoying the live band, I decided to have a look at their cocktail selection. Since I haven't had a "drink" in many years, I just decided to reminisce a little in the past and enjoy one or two. 

Hard Rock Cafe also has quite a few limited time offer cocktails up for grabs in case you didn't already know (I sure didn't - obviously)...



So come on over to Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur and enjoy these limited time only offers before the 13th of March 2018.

Rock'N Bowl will ROCK YOUR WORLD !!!! I assure you that you will not be disappointed.

Rock on over to the nearest Hard Rock Cafe or find out more at Hard Rock Cafe's Website .

Natasya Riverside Resort - An Affordable Weekend Getaway!



You may have read about the fun times I had over the weekend with my pals from #KBBA9 at Natasya Riverside Resort in Gopeng, Perak.

What I didn't tell you was what sort of accommodation, facilities and activities you can find there. So this time round it's not going to be about me but more about the resort itself.

Natasya Riverside Resort is situated approximately 20 kilometers from Ipoh and about a t 10 minute drive from the Gopeng toll plaza. The road to the resort is fairly narrow and would be a bit of a hassle for larger vehicles. Nonetheless, it's adequate enough considering that the resort is smack in the middle of fruit orchards.

Entering the resort, the first thing you see is a tree house accompanied by an old Land Rover Defender making it look like a scene from some Indiana Jones movie.


 Be warned though that it also feels like the movie because the sun shines like there's no tomorrow and it is BLAZING HOT during the day. There's no need for sun-block though because like i said, the resort is surrounded by fruit trees hence the natural canopy is abundant.

Natasya Riverside Resort's lobby and common area makes it look rather exclusive and Balinese like with cobble stones, green grass and wooden furniture. The common area is also equipped with a small makeshift stage which can be used as a mini stage for karaoke or even simple business presentations or awards during company team building or family day trips.




The ample ground space within the property is also ideal to have family gatherings and tele-matches. If that isn't enough, rest assured that there are a myriad of other activities that can be arranged for to suit your personal or group needs. All this of course will incur additional charges. (nothing in life is free... hehe...)

Before we get carried away with all the fun activities that Natasya Riverside Resort has to offer, let me first entice you with their somewhat luxurious living spaces.
They currently have two different types of accommodation which are the Cabin styled units as well as the more conventional Chalet type units.



The one that we stayed in was the Chalets and I must say that it was rather spacious considering that housed 4 fully grown adults comfortably. These Chalets come with a small veranda / sitting area, a small lounge / sitting area, an attached shower and other amenities like the standard hot water kettle, Air Conditioning and Television.

In terms of bedding, each chalet is equipped with one Queen Sized Bed and one Double Decker. On the outside, the windows have stained glass panes and the overall structure is built mostly out of wood (including the flooring) which gives it a truly rustic feel.





The prices range from RM 165.00 to RM 280.00 depending on which type of accommodation you choose. The rates here are also quite reasonable and if your visit here is timed correctly, you may also be in for quite a treat.



The treat I mentioned is the ever sought after KING of fruits! The Durian...
Sometime late last year, Natasya Riverside Resort had one such promotion running especially for Durian lover. (p/s: hopefully they do it again this year. hihi.)
They have the Jack Fruit too... nyum..nyum..




What else can I say, Natasya Riverside Resort is definitely the place to relax and unwind with the family or friends. Nothing beats some fresh air, food, fun and family right?!






Soooooo.... To get more information on their facilities and packages, scoot on over to their social media accounts and enquire.
