Another Airport Encounter with Acer Review

Just the other day at the airport, I wished I had a tablet or a notebook with me.
I was flying to Manila. This lady tapped me on my shoulder.
She said "m'am, can you help me?"
She didn't know where the boarding gate was.
Her boarding pass was printed prior check in, so it didn't show the boarding gate.
I checked that she was going to Manila and the departure time was the same as mine.
I told her to follow me, thinking we should be getting on the same flight.
She asked if I was going to Manila for work, I said yes.
She called me m'am, I guessed that she works in Malaysia as a helper.
So I asked if she's working here and if she's going back to Philippines for holiday.
She said "yes m'am, I work here m'am, I'm going back because my mother is dying."
My heart sank 10 thousand feet.
I immediately said that I'm sorry to hear, so so so sorry as I caressed her back.
I didn't know what to say, I said something like:
"I'm sorry, you'll be ok, I'm sorry, you know, this is life...
Everyone has to go through this, I'm sorry to hear."
Totally not the right time to say it, not the right thing to say, stupid.
She started sobbing :"Sorry m'am, I can't control m'am..."
"No, no, no, it's totally fine to cry!"
I felt so guilty, I tried to change the topic.
She is 33, she has 3 kids, living in Philippines.
Her employer has 2 kids, seven-year-old and a three-year-old.
I was like wow that must be tough.
She said yeh, she gets really tired sometimes but she has to do what she gotta do.
She was constantly worried about her return flight.
Her employer didn't print the itinerary for her return flight.
I was skeptical, thinking maybe her employer didn't get her flight back here.

That moment, I really, really wished that I had a notebook with me, because:
1. So I could check her flight for her.
2. I could document this story in a more detailed way.

 I tried to do it on my mobile, it took forever.
The mobile web wasn't working smooth, I had to retry many times.
So much hassle, so mush stress, cause we were called to board the plane and I was eager to help her.
I got it in the end, she is coming back two weeks later.
I went back to sit with my crew and asked for a pen.
I wrote her a message saying
"Life can be hard but life is beautiful. Stay strong."
I worried that she couldn't read English, I also googled translated to Filipino.
I don't even know if it's right but I wrote it down anyway.
I folded the note and some banknotes up, I held them in my palm.
She boarded first as I waited for my crew.
She passed me by and said thank you to me with absolute sincerity.
I know her name and I know her seat number.
I boarded the plane, I reached her seat, I hunched down and told her that it was lovely to meet her
as I slid the note and banknotes in to her palm.
She saw the banknotes, she said no...
I said stay strong.
She said thank you m'am, with a weak smile, with tears rolling in her eyes.

Unforgettable encounter.
I so wanted to type it down on the plane if I had a notebook with me.
Done with my story and back to my review.

That’s why I was thrilled when my talent manager told me that
I get to use the new Acer Aspire Switch 10E for a review.
After that encounter, I realized that I really need a 2-in-1 notebook.
I like to write, sometimes inspiration spills and I got nothing to note it down.

I like a tablet, it's convenient but I still prefer using a physical keyboard than a screen keyboard.
The Acer Aspire Switch 10E is powered by Intel® Atom™ processor and Windows 8.1.
Beauty and brains for the trendsetter in you!
The thing I love most about the Acer Aspire Switch 10E is that
it can be a tablet, a notebook, a display, pretty much anything you need it to be.
The magnetic Acer Snap Hinge™ allows you to snap the keyboard part on or off
with a simple push or pull.
You can switch effortlessly between 4 modes -
laptop, table, tent or display to fit into every situation.

Why not use it whatever way you want to?

I'm very very very impressed with the battery life.
Apparently, it has a long 12-hour battery life.
I've been using this tablet for a few days now, even typing this post with it.
 Acer BluelightShield™ reduces stress causing blue light when you need
to look at the screen for long periods.
 Acer BluelightShield™ has 4 modes -
low reduction, mid reduction, high reduction and long hour mode for extended use.
I use it to listen to music when I'm not doing work.
I watch a lot of music videos and music interviews just to keep myself in the loop. 

Why not use it for music?

The Acer Aspire Switch 10E comes in a range of eye-catching colours.
Its textile-pattern texturing makes it look elegant.
It also prevents scratches and dirt.
Available in Moonstone white, Shark grey, Peacock blue, Coral red and Magenta pink.
It looks very striking and stylish.

Why not use it for style?

Doing some accounting stuff while having lunch.
