DASH - my wardrobe #needsanupdate

Tuesday, July 22, 2014
How many of you here hate digging through your bag to find your wallet when making payments at the cashier? I know I do! With my hands full with my shopping, this is daaaaamn troublesome.

If you carry around a big bag like me, you'd know my woe. Sometimes digging through your bag is such a chore (not to mention embarrassing when you hold up the queue)- and even worse, I've had my nails break (omg such a bimbo statement, I know) while digging through my bag!

Unlike my long, hugeass and heavy wallet, which I usually keep in my bag, my phone is so much more convenient to hold in my hands.

Now, you can wave those woes of a heavy wallet and cashless situations goodbye with SingTel and Standard Chartered Bank’s newest innovation: Dash!

Dash is a free mobile app that allows you to download your cash straight into your phone, and you can pay merchants (such as Watsons and Wing Tai stores including Topshop/Topman) or your friends real cash! Gone are the days of queuing up at the ATMs!

Transactions done via Dash are absolutely safe and no charges applied, so it is literally your very own ATM in your hand!
Damn happy when I saw that Topshop was on the list of merchants yknow!! If you don't already know, most of my shorts are from Topshop because they have sizes that fit me in designs that I like!

Dash is really convenient to use and not to mention really fast! I was the very 1st customer to pay via Dash at the Topshop Ion outlet, and despite it being both mine and the cashier's first time using Dash, we were done in less than 1 minute. No change required either!

If you search Topshop from the list of merchants, you can find the one you are at and there will be different codes. Each counter has a code so if it isn't displayed clearly, ask your cashier which one it is!
Slide down to pay merchants!

Imput amount.

This is what will be reflected on the cashier's side so that they know your transaction passed through! They will then verify the last 4 digits of your phone number as well.

I also bought some toiletries at Watsons with Dash later that day and again, done under a minute!
Shows you nearby merchants!

Confirmation prompt.

Besides paying merchants, you can also use this amongst your friends!

When eating out with my friends, there is always that one friend that "never bring my wallet", "forget to withdraw money", or "I pay you next time", and it never happens!!

With Dash, these situations won’t happen anymore! Friends can download money from their Standard Chartered Bank Savings account into their Dash mCash account, and transfer the money to their friends directly and safely! Makes splitting the bill amongst a group of friend much more convenient as well! (Pssst, great for mahjong too!)

Besides that... Dash is also available on Comfort Taxis!! Some cabs are Dash enabled and you can pay your cabbie directly through Dash! Which is a real lifesaver if you have forgotten to bring out your wallet, or if you have no change! I really hate the ATMs in town that only dispenses $50 notes because most of the time cabbies don't have enough change (or you'd wipe out their till) and they hate it. There was this once a cabbie actually broke my $50 into all $2 for change (cab ride was about $6) and I ended up with goddamn a lot (23 pieces) of $2 notes... LESSON LEARNT #truestory.

I can't wait till Dash expands and is available at more merchants and ALL taxis!

I hope you’re as excited about Dash as I am!

SingTel's New Youth Plans + Reader Exclusive Deals!

Monday, July 7, 2014
Is anyone else here guilty of being on your phone on social media nearly 24/7 like me? You'll love what I have to share with you today!!!!

As a blogger/social media influencer, a good percentage of my time is spent on social media: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube - you name it. Even when I'm out shopping or dining or doing shoots, I got to admit that I am addicted to the internet and social media... and I know that because when my phone dies on me, I will usually take the bf's phone and start browsing aimlessly lolol. #truestory you guys can ask my bf.

If you follow me on Instagram, you'd know that I do postings very regularly - usually multiple posts in a day. And when I'm not on Instagram, I will be streaming InstaVideos/YouTube videos or my favourite anime, if not that, you can usually find me on Facebook, Twitter, or playing games.

With that being said, there’s always a price to pay for being constantly connected online and I would definitely vow that that mobile data plan is a necessity for me. Take away my SMSes (who still uses that :x), take away my free call time, I NEED (!!!) my data plan. IKR, my addiction is beyond horrible. So imagine how bummed was I when they took away the 12GB data plan to replace it with a shitty 2GB??!

Ok, but truthfully speaking, even though I don't usually hit the full 12GB (I once use about 8GB at max, but I will usually fall in between the range of 3~5GB on a good month), it used to always be comforting to know that I will still have the 12GB to fall back on so that I won't exceed my bills which are paid for by my parents.

Lucky for us.... (and I have more perks for you guys because you guys read my blog xo) SingTel heard my woes on having limited mobile data and they are giving YOU GUYS more data - FOR LESS $$!!

For my readers, here are the extra* perks:
*For new sign ups/port in


All you have to do is to sign up for your plan via this link (Do note it has to be via this link and you won't be able to get these perks elsewhere http://www.singtelshop.com/jamietan)

Never tried purchasing a phone online before? Don’t worry because signing for your plan and purchasing a new phone is super-fast and fuss free over at SingTel’s e-shop!
The exclusive discount you will get from my link ($50 off handset purchase xluding iPhone) will only be reflected at the summary page after you have logged in and the additional 2GB will be reflected on your phone bill when it’s mailed to you. If you'd like to trade in your phone, just check the option and you can pass them your phone when they deliver yours (within 2~3 working days). How convenient is that! Now you don’t have to especially make a trip down to get your phone trade in!

If you'd still like to get it done physically at SingTel’s shop and still want the additional perks from me, all you have to do is to email contest@gushcloud.com with you Name, Contact Number and let them know you are my reader and the voucher will be mailed to you directly for you to spend at the shop!

I personally feel that it's a really great deal you will not want to give it a miss. Where can you get a deal that gives you a 5GB data for only $36 (rounded up) for the Youth Lite plan ?! I think my current plan is $40ish for 3GB data :((((

Anyway, how do y'all like my new phone? Couldn’t resist taking a selfie with my new LG phone and I can’t waittttt to share with you guys more about it in the next coming blog post! Stay tuned and SIGN UP FOR THE SINGTEL YOUTH PLAN NOW IF U HAVEN’T!
