#thursday3 [12.05.2016]

It has been a long time since the last time I did this project. It's time to continue the tradition. 


1. I am currently reading Essentialism: The Discipline Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown. I highly recommend this book. It's amazing idea, getting rid of nonessential. So many white noise around me lately.

2. I am so obsess with calories in calories out and reaching 10,000 steps per day. I am hoping to shred at least 2kg by end of the month. Hopefully I can achieve it. It's so damn hard!

3. I am thinking about my life a lot lately. I wanted so bad to do something different, to make a different and change people's life. Somehow I find that it's hard to do at my current position.

Think about it this way…If you take one picture and write down three facts each week — at the end of the year you’ll have more than 50 photos of yourself and 150 facts about what life has been like. It would make such an epic All About Me book — and most of the work is already done." -

Apple Pencil // Why I love it

I can't express enough of how much I am in love with Apple Pencil. Way back when I first started using iPad I have always imagining that I am able to write on my iPad like pen and paper. It's finally comes true in 2016! Yeah!!!

Why I love ApplePencil

My only reason to upgrade my iPad was I wanted the Apple Pencil. iPad Pro the 12" was too big for me. I feel like iPad should be 9.7", the right size to carry around and the right size to write on. (Some how I felt like in a Goldilocks story book, too big, too small, just right)

Anyway, back to the Apple Pencil, many people said that the price is way too expensive for a stylus. Yeah it is expensive but when compared to Mont Blanc pen, it's not that expensive (hehehe..)

Here are FiVE Reason why I am in love with the Apple Pencil

1. I can charged the pencil with my iPad. Believe it or not I kinda like the idea of charging this pencil with the iPad. I know it looks ridiculous but the charging is super super fast and I don't have to worry about buying an extra charging cable for it. It's brilliant!

2. Writing with the Apple Pencil feels so good. It's the closes thing to the real pen. 

3. Integration with third party app is amazing. I used GoodNotes app for my digital planner and my notes, I don't have any problem connecting this pencil to the app. It happened instantly. 

4. I like that I can use the Apple pencil with a real ruler and stencil. It's slim enough to fit into my stencil that I usually used for my planner.

5. Palm Rejection is amazing! I don't have any problem with it. Finally I can use a pen with my iPad like I am using a pen with my planner. 

There you have it, the reasons my I love my Apple Pencil so much. This is also the reason why I am migration all of my planner to my iPad. This device satisfied my need to write and doodle.

The Perfect Moment // Project life inspiration 2016

It has been a long time since the last time I share my Project Life layout a.k.a Digital Scrapbook page here. That was because I haven't had a chance to make any and I was running out of photos to scrap. I wanted to go back like ten years and start to scrap some old photos but somehow I just didn't get to it. I need to do something about that.

In the mean time enjoy a few eye candy from me, a few that I come up with in a few days.


These layouts were made using Project Life App and in store kit. Phonto App for writing on photo.

10 apps you need to download right now (ipad version)

I know I have been slacking in making a blog post regularly. I was jetlag for about a week and getting back into your normal routine is not easy.

I have upgrade my ipad to iPad Pro 9.7" last month. I have been waiting for Apple to upgrade the iPad Air line since last year, instead they made iPad Pro 9.7'. The beauty of this iPad is it works with the Apple Pencil. I have been eyeing the Apple Pencil for awhile now and it's everything that I imagine it would be. I will make a separate blog post about the Apple Pencil. I have so much to talk about it.

I have been using iPad since the iPad 2 and I have never regret the purchased. I have been using the iPad to consume content and lately to create content as well. I don't find the need for a laptop anymore. I still have an iMac, sitting safely in my office or at home. iPad is the only thing I took with me everywhere I go. 

Apps for ipad

In my opinion, other than the regular app like mail, weather, safari on you ipad, you need these additional apps to fully utilised your iPad. Some is free and some cost money. 

 10 Apps you have to download right now!

1. GoodNotes app - this is my go to app for writing on the iPad. Apple pencil works great with this app. I am falling in love with this app all over again. Now I can use this app for digital planning and journaling. I am migrating all my kikki k notes into this app. Love love it!

2. Alarm Clock HD Pro app - I have been using this app for the longest time. Every time I went to bed I launch this app until morning. It's my digital clock at night

3. Project Life app - I think if you have camera phone and memories to document you have to download this app right now. It's scrapbooking on your phone with less hassle and it's very very fast.

4. Kindle app - It's the next best thing to kindle device. Since we can't buy the kindle device here in Malaysia, the kindle app is the option to go. Luckily we can purchased kindle book now and reading has never been this simple and light. 

5. Google Keep app -  I have been trying google keep app on my ipad and iphone since last month and so far I am enjoying it. It's simple and easy enough to use and it sync beautifully across multiple devices.

6. Pigment app - the true adult coloring app on the ipad. I have been searching for an app like this for the longest time. I am glad I found it. Now I can color like using a pencil with this app. No more tapping.

7. Fantastical 2 app - the best calendar base app for your ipad. Too bad the app is not universal. You have to purchase it separately for iphone and ipad.

8. BugMe! app - I love this sticky note app especially the option to save the sticky note as an image. Anything I want to write on sticky note, I will write in this app , save the image and I add the image into my digital planner.

9. Sticky Notes app - this is another sticky note app the I love. It doesn't support inking but it has a dashboard. You can create your monthly or weekly dashboard here, stick a bunch of stickies reminder and a monthly calendar too. You can event capture a photo of the dashboard and made a wall paper for your ipad.

10. Scannable app - scanner app from Evernote. Ipad also has become my portable scanner. I found it easier to scan receipts and small document right from my ipad compare to my computer. I can upload the scan images right to Evernote.

Do you have any other apps that you 
thing I must download right now
Please share, I want to know.
