Tell us what are your favourite gadgets that you can’t leave home without.
Definitely, it will be my mobile phone. Other than making calls and messaging, I depend a lot on my phone, especially when I'm on the move. I use my mobile as navigation on the road to check ETA and traffic conditions.
Mirrorless camera. I love taking pictures on the go and I have high expectations when it comes to photography. Therefore, a compact-sized camera with professional settings will be ideal for me to capture every great shot.
Earphones with bluetooth function. Music can be a great source of motivation. I listen to music from my mobile and I prefer to keep it wireless.
Have you received a gadget from friends or family that is your favourite?
My friends know that I like taking pictures and they gave me a wireless lens which works together with my phone to act as a view-finder. It's small and connects through wifi therefore I can place the lens anywhere and capture a photo by clicking on my phone.
What is the 1 mobile app that you cannot do without to help you ace your acting, hosting gigs?
