ILY @dayxport • IPAD PRO WAT

• 1:01pm •

I’ve been on a rolllllllll, getting so many things done and today I’m even meeting a friend too 😭

Ytd I also exported all my Dayre post to a Wordpress account so it’s all up at http://doubleoxm.wordpress.com! ✨ seriously a huge thank you to @dayxport man πŸ˜­πŸ’– I was super lucky that I stalked @huienloi and asked her about it and she told me so I managed to export before it was officially released! So I didn’t have to wait at all wah #blessed LOL

Omg one of my fav person on Dayre kena spammed by my upload LOL.

I DID NOT KNOW THAT MY TWITTER ACCOUNT WAS LINKED TO WORDPRESS SO I ONLY REALISED WHEN CHARLIE LIM LIKED A TWEET WITH A PHOTO OF BUIBUI ON ET’S FACE LOL

It’s like 4 years worth of posts leh sorry @kobuang 😭😭😭 ILY MANY MANY can’t believe anyone would turn on notifications for my Twitter which is essentially dead too HAHAHA

Also, isn’t it amazing when people come to the rescue??? Seriously, the gem behind @dayxport could have ignored the whole situation and just leave us all hanging because the current Dayre team is a little slow and 28th is coming up soon LOL. (I’m still in the queue btw haha)

Plus it’s still up on the cloud, the internet, where it’s readily accessible by everyone (some of the posts like regarding birds makes it very easy for me to share) instead of in a zipped folder....

So ya!! Super grateful and holy shit the coding is also amazing la just press and wait and refresh the website to see it all coming together :’) THANK YOU SO SO MUCH!! ♥️

Unfortunately, you need to pay Wordpress for video uploads. So that means ALL my videos in my Dayre posts are all lost πŸ™ƒ

Min USD $4 per month, charged annually somemore so it’s like USD $48 which is about SGD $63 in a shot... a bit too much for me right now for something that I probably won’t use but only use as storage LOL

If Dayre is dead, I probably won’t use Wordpress at all honestly. It’s just different la. Even Weblogit, although pretty similar to Dayre, also feels a little odd and takes a bit of getting used to.

If Dayre dies, I still think Weblogit will be my outlet if needed, if I can’t sleep, if I just need to let things out. But I probably won’t do those daily posts like I used to just because I’m so busy BUT SO, SO HAPPY.

I wanted to upload and write about the things that happened while I was MIA cause of the custom order, but I decided against it. Mainly cause it’s gonna be like....photos and videos from my IG story which was already shown, so I’m like repeating myself 🀣

I honestly think I can’t keep up anymore LOL.

It’s a good thing though!! I’ve never been happier ☺

So ya daily musings is really gonna be on @handxmade IG story now, I gotta move on HAHAH

Trying too hard isn’t gonna work la and I really want to keep Dayre/Weblogit spontaneous, not trying to fill it up the gaps???

Like now I’m just writing how I feel, not trying too hard to recap what happened hahhaa

I still like talking to myself here like this though so ya like I said if I need to babble a lot more I’ll find an outlet for micro blogging hoho.

IF YOU WANNA KNOW HOW TO EXPORT PLS GO TO @gilliansng:200218 HOHO

I GOT AN IPAD PRO WTF.

Super spontaneous and last min but I can’t believe it???

I’ve been telling ET how iPad Pro has this app call Procreate and it works the best for iPad Pro cause of the Apple pen, and omg it’s just amazing to illustrate on/letter on leh and since I want to make stickers, I want to learn how to illustrate better, and having Procreate will have all the colours + brushes compared to buying all the copic markers right LOL

I was just casually asking around on carousell the whole day today while I was out, but didn’t really expect to buy la.

So I gotta have at least iPad Pro, and decided to take 128gb, with 12.9” cause this sort of thing if you’re gonna draw on it bigger better. My aim is to try to spend less than $800 and I was like “wtf this is impossible” because I still need to buy Apple Pencil right 😭

The best thing you can do is to ask for best price from carousell sellers. DO NOT LOW BALL. I learnt from ET that you can ask for best price but just don’t immediately ask for ridiculous amount!! Even a $20 discount off original price they put up is better than nothing I feel!

SO YA THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED.

$700 leh he push down so much!! And GUESS WHAT IT’S AT YISHUN DAMN CONVENIENT FOR ME OK

And omg he uses this for Procreate also which is what I want to get this for, so I definitely can trust alr

AND HE SENT ME THIS AND IM LIKE WTF THAT LOOOKS AMAZING AND I LOVE BROOKLYN NINE NINE WTH 😭😭😭✨

And then he sent me this and I’m just like WTF THIS DUDE IS A SAINT 😭

So I was like ok LET’S DO IT and he gave me his name and number etc for me to meet him later!

So being quite the stalker and seeing how his art is so ridiculously good, I searched his name on IG and found him HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

(My phone a bit lag cause I’m using the hotspot for my iPad opps) And omg he’s quite up there leh HAHAHA.

His photos are truly stunning please!!!

I met him irl just now and holy shit he’s so friendly and we talked quite a bit 😭

He was like he rather sell it cheaper to someone who’s in similar scene than to people who low ball and resell it or smth πŸ™„ CANT BELIEVE PEOPLE DO THAT but I’m sure they exists lol there’s all sorts of people in this world man lol

(@alillustralee on IG!)

So ya, coupled with Apple Pencil which is $148, I really managed to get it at less than $800, with the correct size and gb and everything!! 😱 HOW TO NOT BUY AND SERIOUSLY THIS REALLY FEELS LIKE IT’S FATE OK

Even refurbished ones even tho it’s kinda new, still around $968 SGD ok!!! And that’s without Apple Pencil also which will make the total $1116 and the difference is like $316 omg I really damn lucky la

He even followed me and says he likes my stuff leh wtf honoured please?!?!

Oh ya here’s the “dent” which is more like a scratch that’s why he was selling cheaper!!

But honestly, as long as it works well I am totally A-OKAY πŸ‘πŸ»

Wah today’s an amazing day. I kinda made a friend, and I can explore digital illustration alr!!!! (I can’t do on photoshop cause I have no Wacom etc also hahaha)

OK JUST VERY EXCITED let me continue the set up it’s finally done hahaahahahaha

Day 52
