Using iCloud to download music
With iCloud, the music you buy in iTunes appears automatically on all of your Apple devices. ​iCloud can automatically download new music purchases. Just sign in to the iTunes Store with your Apple ID and download the song directly. Once you own the songs, albums, movies, or TV shows, they will be listed in your purchase history. 

Easy tools for recording
I recommend using Cool Edit Pro or Adobe Audition with enable MIC input. Then make sure that your soundcard MIC input is enabled; sometimes this option is set to “disabled”. You can start singing and recording your sound by clicking on REC. Once you are finished recording, you can save it to a WAV or mp3 format or any other extension of your choice.  ​

How to organise your song files
Sometimes iTunes automatically classifies your music in different categories, making it hard to find. So I create several main folders for Khmer, English and Korean songs. Then in each folder, I put the song in another folder, making sure that all the file songs bear a title name, not just the word “track”. 

Styling with accessories
I do not like to wear excessive accessories when I go out. Usually, I wear a small necklace, a square black watch, and a tiny black or red belt. 

Choosing the right song for the right mood
Choose the right song that will lift your spirits. Whether you feel tired, depressed or madly in love, you can have a song ready to fit your mood. If you are angry, I recommend rock music or a song with loud lyrics so you can shout along!
