Life's Good with LG: Premium 2017 lineup of TVs, Audio and IT Solutions


Yes! I traveled to a mountainside before heading to a snowy capped peak just so you could see these views!

Say what? Am I kidding? Yes. I actually am.

These views are so realistic I actually thought I was there earlier on. But nope, I was actually at LG's new 2017 electronics launch event, where they showcased some of the exciting products which would be coming up very soon!

Following the launch of their extremely classy LG G6 smartphone, they continue to spark our interest with the 2017 premium lineup of TVs, Audio systems and IT Solutions.


Here are their executives, sharing the exciting launch and updates with us.



I managed to snap a shot of the 2017 Lineup for their TVs. Don't we all love TVs... I seriously do. haha.



I've seen for myself the extremely sharp and lovely quality of their TV screens, which is one to look out for. We're talking 10 awards here for their signature OLED TV W, my friends.

This TV is so special because it has the world's slimmest panel at just 2.57mm! Take two 1-dollar coins and stick them together. That's 2.57mm! Super slim! And you know, minimalists out there would love this - no more unsightly wires for this TV as there's a universal strip cable to keep it all neat, and it's the perfect wall mount (mounted directly on the wall with only magnetic brackets) with minimal gap! Sticks on your wall like the ultimate digital wallpaper!

The TV audio is also extremely powerful and rich - using object based sound, mastered in Dolby Atmos that capture every sound of each object. You actually feel like you're there, listening to the pitter patter of the raindrops.

The 2017 lineup of LG OLED TVs to look out for include the W7 and G7 (77-inch/65 inch), as well as the E7 and C7 (65 inch and 55 inch).


The LG UHG 4K TVs seen here also offers resolution four times higher than HDTV's. Excellent viewing angles, superb colour reproduction, and optimal screen brightness!

Also, these TVs are Netflix Recommended, a title which is only awarded to TVs that have passed rigorous evaluation processes such as a fast app launch, easy access, clear display of images and text, etc. No more lag time in switching to your favourite programme!




Another feature of their TVs that really impressed me was the Perfect Black TV. This feature enables the TV to have infinite contrast and is 200 times deeper black than other non OLED TVs.

This is awesome because non OLED TVs have a grey overcast, marring the visual experience, while the Perfect Black makes it such that at any angle, you'll see the same, deep, alluring black you'll find visually stunning.


Look at the HDR feature as well. The colours are brighter and more vibrant, providing a more realistic view for deeper visual impact.


These TVs feature the Nano Cell display, and incorporating it with a cutting edge LCD display technology that improves the picture quality considerably. The Nano Cell absorbs unwanted light, and this light absorbing capability reduces instances of colour fading and degradation, improving colour gamut and accuracy! 

That means a wider viewing angle and no more colour distortion, y'all!

 

Check out these speakers too! 

Portable and pretty - that's what I would want. Give me this one already (under the PJ series of portable Bluetooth speakers), it's super lovely! I was glad to learn it's also well suited for the outdoors. 

The speakers feature a turbine blade design that allows the sound to resonate 360 degrees and when using outdoors, no need to worry about adverse weather conditions as it can withstand immersion in water up to one meter for up to 30 mins! 

But please lah, if you can avoid it, then do so. Don't itchy hand go try, ok?



Another speaker which is super cool, people. Check it out, it floats!

It's known as the PJ9 speaker, which can be paired with a subwoofer to achieve a truly sonorous audio experience, complete with deep bass. The subwoofer acts as a levitation (a.k.a FLOATING!) station. When activated, the speaker will float and rotate in mid-air! This visual effect is created using powerful electromagnets housed inside the levitation station.


Curved TV, perfect viewing around you at any angle.

Gaming monitors are extremely attractive looking too. I feel like getting one of these!


To be honest, what impressed me was also how they took in their consumers' feedback and updated what bothered people the most, in their next design - which birthed the next edition of the lightest laptop, which weighs only 970grams, bruhs. 970grams! SO LIGHT. This is totally lighter than my entire palm, you guys.


Not sure if you can see it, but this 14-inch LG Gram is perched on a weighing scale, showing its weight - 956 grams, to be exact. 970grams are the maximum weight which the laptop will weigh, so hence, the specs for the LG Gram will be listed as such.



Following the success of the LG Gram launched in Singapore last year, the brand will expanding the series with a 13.3 inch, 14 inch and 15.6 inch laptop bodies, which are all the lightest in their own category. The screen is extremely sharp as well and go easy on the eyes. I'm seriously considering getting myself one of these laptops!

What I'm impressed by these laptops:
- improved battery life (up to 17.5 hours)
- assortments of inbuilt ports for easier and quicker connectivity to various devices
- Backlit keyboard (which was not available on the previous LG Gram), now available
- extremely thin but not flimsy
- Super lightweight
- uses the advanced 6th gen Intel Core i5 or i7
- Screen support Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080) IPS display
- Quicker charging (included fast charge feature)


Here's me with the 15.6 inch LG Gram Laptop!


The launch for these products is slated to be in the upcoming month.

Visiting the One Piece Cafe in South Korea, Hongdae!

Saturday, 15 April 2017

Visiting the One Piece Cafe in South Korea, Hongdae!

Yes! All of you already know what a One Piece fan I am. So here I am, at the newly opened Hongdae South Korea One Piece Cafe!

The cafe opened late Dec 2016, and I'm super happy to visit this place (even when I fell prey to flu).

So yes, I managed to check this place out on the 2nd last day of my trip, and I was super happy to head there with another fan.

A majestic ship model is seen as you turn the corner. And you know you're in One Piece land.
 Yokoso! (a.k.a Welcome!)

Chopper helps out at the take-out window. :)


We head into the merchandise shop, located at level one. Note that the cafe is no where in sight, because it's at another entrance.


Franky is put at the staff door to keep people away - like he was born for this.

(For those who don't know - Franky is one of my favourite people in the manga, even though his popularity is not as high as the other characters) HAHA.


MERCHANDISE GALORE! Every One Piece store in various countries will produce different merchandise specially for that respective country, so do keep an eye out for that.


OMG the helmets are sooo cool. I want the WhiteBeard Pirates one, although I don't even own a motorcycle.

And Korea - always must have skincare products. If you're a pirate sailing the seas, you better have Korean sunscreen. Also... Laboon soft toy! OMGOMGOMGOMG. I totally am regretting not getting it.


South Korea's shop is thus far the only one I've seen a model sized den den mushi! Unfortunately it looks a little dirty - perhaps too many people have touched and gushed over it.


Special to Korea - One Piece Wanted T-Money card (transport card)!This one is Sanji, but there are other characters available too.



And of course, more selfies.

 After checking out the merchandise, we proceed to the cafe next door. When you enter, you'll see a counter and a staircase to your right. You cannot proceed upstairs to the cafe area unless you purchase something from the menu!

And note - one person one order. If you don't order, you just don't get to go upstairs.


I have to say that the menu is lacklustre in terms of its offerings compared to the ones I visited in Japan and Taiwan. Taiwan's menu is so much more attractive.




Don't be shocked when I tell you that these devil fruits are indeed - cakes. Yes, full sized cakes that is slightly bigger than your palms. Unfortunately, another blogger who visited told me she bought it not knowing that it costed 40,000krw each (SGD$49.20!!) and inside was just some fondant and chocolate cake.

Warning: It does not taste nice at all. Only instagrammable at most!


Anyone wants a devil fruit macaron or some Chopper waffles?


Upstairs is not a very huge space. There's a free space you can chill out at, and feel free to help yourself to the Korean version of One Piece comic books.




Also, do check out their display case of One Piece figurines.

We only ordered 4 drinks (cos, 4 of us). If you guessed mine was the Franky one, you guessed right. And now - what do you think the Franky drink was?

(pssst.... it's fizzy and you can get them from your supermarkets in a red and white can)


Anyhoo, there's our receipt. Each drink (a simple one even) costed about 6,000krw (SGD$7.30) already!

If you are here for the experience, well and good. But don't expect too much from the food and drinks. In my opinion, it's actually one of the worst One Piece cafes I've been to.
