The day for all tech geek, Mobile World Congress happened yesterday.Mobile World Congres happened in Barcelona. The largest wireless party on the planet, MWC is famous for showcasing new smartphones.
As HTC Fan, I would like to introduce you the beast; HTC One M9!
There have so many interesting stuff that HTC reveal (you can watch the video below) but I would like to highlight few things that make me excite; HTC One M9 and HTC Re Grip.
Dual-tone all-metal body features mirrored edges that are ergonomically tapered to effortlessly fit your grip. Its unibody back is curved to achieve the streamlined look and feel of the iconic HTC One series smartphones.

– #AmazingCamera – 20MP Camera, capture every detail.
– HTC #UltraPixel Front Camera – Better selfies in low light.
– HTC #BoomSound – With Dolby Audio™ Surround
- #HTCOneM9 #HTCOneLife
HTC One M9 features that I love most:
– 20MP main camera
– UltraPixel front-facing camera
– HTC BoomSound with Dolby Audio
20MP main camera with an UltraPixel front camera provides photo and imaging control like never before. HTC Eye™ Experience software allows you to create Split Captures, take Voice Selfies, apply Live Makeup and more. Plus, you can combine your photos and videos with your friends for footage from multiple points of view with the Zoe app. Enjoy incredible images from both sides of the HTC One M9.
Partnering with Dolby, the HTC One M9 recreates the 5.1 surround sound effect to deliver true left and right channel sound for a cinematic experience. HTC BoomSound™ with Dolby Audio provides optimised sound, even from multi-channel online sources. Available both on BoomSound audio and headphone modes, your films and games have never sounded better.
Yay or Nay when HTC do a collaboration with Under Armour?
For fitness obsessed! Damn! I can’t wait this bad boy to come down to Malaysia!
Regular monitoring and lifestyle changes can help to manage cholesterol levels effectively
The 2015 National Health and Morbidity Survey revealed that 47.7% of Malaysians above 18 years old suffer from high cholesterol levels. This significant increase (from 32.6% in 2011) is quite alarming and further statistics from the report revealed that 38.6% of these adults did not even know that their cholesterol levels were above acceptable levels. This is further compounded by the fact that 94.0% of Malaysian adults did not consume the adequate portion of fruits and/or vegetables as recommended by WHO (5 servings of fruits and/or vegetables daily).
One of the key factors to managing heart health is to understand what cholesterol is and how it works in the body. “Cholesterol is a type of fat that cannot dissolve in our blood. It is transported through our bloodstream by carriers called lipoproteins (lipids and proteins ,” said Cher Siew Wei, Corporate Wellness Manager, Nestlé Malaysia.
“Cholesterol has many important functions in the body, including being part of the cell walls, producing bile acids and hormones and making Vitamin D in your skin,” she added. “Cholesterol can be found mostly in shellfish, prawns, red meat and egg yolk.”
There are two types of lipoproteins: Low density lipoprotein (LDL) or ‘bad’ cholesterol and high density lipoprotein (HDL) or ‘good’ cholesterol. High level of LDL will contribute to blocked arteries and increase the risk of heart disease. On the other hand, HDL helps protect arteries from a build-up of fatty deposits such as plaque, thus reducing the risk of heart disease. It is important to note that the cholesterol consumed from food only has a small effect on bad cholesterol. Saturated and trans fats cause a much greater increase in bad cholesterol.
If high cholesterol levels are not managed, this can result in the build-up of cholesterol plaques that can harden the walls of arteries and block blood flow. Should a cholesterol plaque rupture, this can result in a blood clot forming over the rupture which could cause a heart attack or a stroke.
Everyone above the age of 20 years old should have their cholesterol levels checked at least once every 5 years. More frequent testing may be needed if your initial test results were not within the normal range or if you’re at higher risk of heart disease due to a family history of high cholesterol or heart attack, being overweight or physically inactive, suffer from diabetes, consume a high-fat diet, smoke cigarettes or above 45 years old (for men) or 55 years old (for women).
Simple lifestyle changes can also help to manage cholesterol levels:
Being physically active can help to lower cholesterol levels. Try to exercise on most days of the week and increase your physical activity, for example, by aiming to walk 10,000 steps daily.
By quitting the act of smoking, you can also improve your HDL cholesterol levels and decrease your blood pressure. Maintain
Maintain a healthy body weight with an Ideal BMI between 18.5-24.9
Include plant sterols in your daily diet: 1.2g of plant sterols daily can be easily consumed from 2 servings of Nestlé Omega Plus milk to manage cholesterol levels.
It is only through regular monitoring and prevention that cholesterol levels can be managed effectively as high cholesterol levels do not manifest any signs or symptoms.
First and foremost, pardon my awkwardness because I’m not used to writing about myself. Second of all, please pardon all my vain pot pictures. I know I’m not that pretty, but yes, this blog post is the space for me to brag about myself 🙂
I was a bit reluctant at first, coz I can talk about everything else under the sun (well, almost) , no problem, but not about myself. but for Feeq, and to save my own face also, I will do my best! as the first picture states, my name is Dila Ariff!
I’m turning 21 on March 26th, 2011, and am super excited about it! 😀 No plans for party yet, but we’ll see how it goes when the time comes!
Currently pursuing my Bachelor’s Degree in Arts (Communication and Media Management) in Taylor’s University College, Lakeside campus. I blog at www.dilaariff.com. I’ve been blogging for quite some time, but just recently got my domain, thanks to Ridzuan.
For some of you who might have known me for quite some time, you might know that I love ice cream. I can eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch, tea, dinner and supper! 😀 Which explains my size right now. but I don’t care, ice cream is still number one in my heart, even the hottest guy on Earth can’t win him! 😀
As a blogger, I’ve had my share of “perks”. but still I do make an effort to get things on my own. with the effort I’ve put in as well as the “perks” of a blogger, I’ve met a few (or a lot, depending on how you see it) artists and watched them perform live.

This is Johan Farid Khairuddin, or you may know him better as JFK, a part-time Hitz.fm DJ. he’s ma big brother yaw! 😉
At the moment, he’s transferring his Australian flying license into a Malaysian license. once he’s done with that, he’ll be a full fledge pilot for Air Asia! picture was taken when I was in Gold Coast for a holiday and was ready to check-in. then poof! there he was! didn’t expect to see him working that night, but I did! 🙂
Thanks to him, I got this!
A birthday wish from Guy Sebastian himself, flown in all the way from Gold Coast! well, I don’t think Guy actually knows who he’s wishing Happy Birthday to, but no matter, I got a birthday wish from him and you don’t! 😛
Yes, I am also well known to be photographed with eating utensils in my mouth. but contrary to what you may be thinking, I don’t eat a lot. I can’t even finish a bowl of rice on my own, unless I’m really hungry.
I also love travelling. thanks to my adventurous mother, I’ve been to the southern most tip of mainland Asia (Tanjung Piai, Johor) and the tip of Borneo (Simpang Mengayau, Kudat, Sabah). the place is so pretty, it took my breath away!
I’m sorry for the long winded post. I secretly want to be a writer, but I’m yet to be inspired to write a whole book because I tend to write halfway, get an idea for a new story and abandon the old story.
