Bran et Daguet 'Secret Rendezvous' Fashion Show @ E&O Hotel Penang

It was a night of glitz and fashion, as the exclusive fashion design Bran et Daguet held their 'Secret Rendezvous' fashion show at Eastern & Oriental Hotel Penang. Now I'm not exactly the most fashion conscious person around, but I do know how to appreciate good fashion pieces. If fashion could ever be described succinctly by words, I do think it would include words like sophistication, subliminal, and sensual.

Ninetology U9 Z1 VS HTC Butterfly S Gadget Comparison Review

This would be a short overview, more on the unboxing, as well as first looks. Reason being, the time I had with the two gadgets was quite limited hence limiting my ability to look further into its features and useability. Anyway check out below on my short gadget comparison review.
