MagicScan: The Portable Wand Scanner

Hello!  It's been a while...

MagicScan

So what's been going on with me?  Well, I'm glad to say I am finally able to go back to work!  Wohoo!!!  Also, I've moved back to Singapore (I know.  Again?! ); but you pay a heavy price for a complete family.  It's a sacrifice.

And while we are all trying to adjust to this new chapter in our lives, we move on and take each challenge one step, one day at a time.

In preparation to the move to the Lion City, I we gave up stuff.  Clothes, bags, shoes, and gadgets (among others) given to relatives who might have use for them.  The others (pictures, letters, etc.), either sorted in small albums left in the 'rent's home in Cavite or, unfortunately, thrown out.  

I know, sad story, but it had to be done.  We could not be lugging anything extra with us everytime we move house.

I may not have the physical photos now; but the memories are still with me.  And I don't mean just in my mind, ok.

I used my MagicScan to scan and keep copies.  I swear, it's one of the best gadgets the Husband ever gave me (Thank you, Dada!

Scanning...

All I do is run the scanner over documents I want to scan and viola!  It's converted to JPEG file.  Amazing!

Amazing!

Now all my photos are digitized and kept in my hard drive for safekeeping.

There is a hiccup, though, mainly is that you have to use steady movements/motions when scanning to capture a good image.  It's not too bad as it gets better with practice.  

Love it!

P.S.  My MagicScan was bought in Challenger in Singapore.  I'm not sure if it is now available in the Philippines.

  1. Okay, so you're back in Singapore. I keep figuring out where you are hehehe. This is just a cool gadget. By any chance, is there something like that here in Manila?? Been meaning to scan old photos too! Especially from my childhood days.

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
