Unboxing: Nikon D5300 DSLR with 18-55 VR II kit lens


Presenting…my new DSLR camera for 2014 is finally here! My hunt for a new DSLR camera is now over, if you noticed here in my blog, I always post some prices of cameras and lenses that I found in stores and online buy and sell sites. I was researching for a new camera and that’s a sign for me to move on after enjoying the Olympus camera brand, it was a good experience with Olympus through the years, but I have to move forward and try other cameras. I have lots of selections,but I must choose one only.

My test on #SmartFREEInternet –before and after expiration of free internet

After 4 days of the launch of free 30MB internet by Smart, many people ask questions if this is some kind of trap and scam to their prepaid subscribers in order to steal their text loads via the free internet promo of Smart. Others are afraid to try the free promo because they think that Smart might trick them by paying more without your knowledge when your free internet connection has expired.
