Publishing an eBook in Malaysia is more challenging than climbing Mt. Kota Kinabalu

  Today, I want to talk about writing or publishing an ebook from Malaysia. I've been trying for a few months, and from time to time, it's more challenging than climbing Mount Kinabalu. I have a few points that I want to share with you. If you are looking to publish an ebook to build your brand name, your personal IP, or any other purposes hope this will be helpful to you. 3 Popular Online Bookstores So, let's start off with how do you publish an ebook? The first way to publish e-books is via Google Play Store. Why do I recommend Google Play Store as the first choice? Because Google Play Store are the main Android system being used worldwide.

Vlogging using smartphone or mirrorless camera

When I started to vlog, one of the challenges I faced is capturing good quality video. This is really come down to the hardware set-up.

I didn't want to buy a separate camera because I want to keep everything in the smartphone ecosystem. But, I also want to test this and share my experiences with you. I want to test the video quality using a mirrorless camera compared to the same price range smartphone. At the moment, I am using Samsung Galaxy A72 as my daily driver and I just bought a Sony A5000 with kit lens 15-50mm OSS. I also just bought a Meike MK-35mm f1.7 lens with manual focus.

Besides having a decent video recording device, I need to set up the lighting properly. This is another challenge to me because I do not have a dedicated working place for vlogging, i.e a shooting room. My lighting setup changes frequently.  Therefore, I can not produce a consistent video quality (which upset me a lot).

Anyway, here is the comparison and share with me your thought in the comment below. Once again, if you like the content that I provide, please remember to follow me and I look forward to seeing you soon.
