10 Things You Don’t Know About WeChat

With the rise of mobile apps in the Philippines, people are often mistaken that all of them are just the same. You think you know it all ….Video Calls. Stickers. Free SMS. You got it wrong. There are many features of WeChat that are not known to many. Here are the 10 things you don’t know about WeChat:

1. You can actually act like a SPY on WeChat. With their “Private Group” function, you can act like James Bond and tell your friend to just join the chat using your 4 digit password before they can get hold of your top secret. Without this password, you can’t join this private Group and they won’t know what’s the juicy secret they’ve been wanting to hear.

2. You can meet a new friend or even a boyfriend. By using “People Nearby”, you will get a chance to meet your next BFF or even your boyfriend to be. It has Tinder like features where it allows you to talk to people that are near your area. Who knows? Your prince charming might be a 100m away from you!

3. Their Stickers are moving and you can even create your own sticker. All the other chat apps uses stickers that are static. With WeChat, they’re moving! Not just that, you can upload your own GIF, upload it on WeChat and have your own set of stickers. You can even make yourself a sticker of your own face and turn them into moving stickers. How cool is that!?

4. You can add up to 100 people on their Group Chats.  While some of the other apps can only carry up to 40, WeChat can hold up to 100 people on the group chat where they can all send Photos, Name Card, use the Walking Talkie function, chat with each other and send animated stickers. Gather your whole high school batch on the group chat so you guys are all up do date with the gimiks , latest chikkas and upcoming reunions! [Read more...]

Fruit Infused Tea

Bored with your usual detox drink of choice? I found this little spin by a Youtuber.

What you will need:

Your choice of detox tea
Lemon & other fruits of your liking
Water (hot or cold)

Mix all ingredients in a big tumbler or water bottle. Choose a water bottle with a big opening so fruit cuts can fit in the bottle.

Hope this will give you ideas on how to up the ante of your detox drink. Happy detox!

Lea Salonga Nostalgia As Jasmine in 1992 “Aladdin” With Il Divo

Lea Salonga singing “A Whole New World” with Il Divo has been going viral in the worldwide web. Aside from us here in the Philippines and the theatre world, it’s probably the first taste of Lea Salonga that the world has ever tasted. And, that animated film was done 22 years ago.

Entertainment Online has commented that the voice of Lea Salonga then and now as Princess Jasmine has never changed. Watching the “A Whole New World” part in the animated film and then comparing the live performance gave me goosebumps.

Watch Lea Salonga and Brad Kane record the original singing voice for the Disney film, Aladdin.

Fun Facts: Lea Salonga

Bluetooth Camera Remote Shutter

I’ve always wanted to shoot pictures in motion without having to awkwardly hold the camera or set my iPhone & camera on timer. I’ve just found the solution.

The bluetooth camera remote shutter has been floating around gadget geek world. My concern is always about the products being available and accessible where I live.

Bluetooth Remote Shutter

Fortunately, there are third party resellers on Instagram and online shopping websites that sell these things. I’m happy to see CDR-King, cheapest gadget store in the country, are selling it online and at their store. And yes, it’s still cheap.

The way it works is that you have to download the Camera 360 app on your phone, iOS and Android, for the remote shutter to work. The app is free! After every use, remember to turn off the little device as it is consuming battery life. There’s an On and Off switch at the side of the device. I just got the shutter and I’m not sure how long the battery life would last.

I tested the shutter with the built-in camera of the iPhone 4 and it worked perfectly. I tested the shutter with the Camera+ and VSCO app as well and it worked! [Read more...]

#HaulinLikeAVillain : E-books in Kobo App

I’m still on a book review high from last month and found a couple more of books to read and is on preview in Kobo app.

Who here uses Kobo? It’s an e-book store and the app let’s you earn badges whenever you reach certain level of book reading. The badges are a great feature. For someone who doesn’t so much as read books, this is a fun way to get them to read and read some more.

What I bought and currently reading

Of Neptune

I definitely must have the final book of the Syrena series. I couldn’t find a copy of it on scribd.com/. And I’m finally done with it. I’m now able to check my bucket list for this year which is to read a book series.

I think vampires and werewolves fiction is overrated. Mermaids are going to be invading the movie screens pretty soon. I hear someone’s making a movie of the books. Actors in mermaid costumes should be fun to see. LOL!

Rebels: City of Indra

There’s a reason why I prefer getting an e-book version. Books that might not be that good or just not worth adding in the book shelf. Well, in my personal book shelf that is.

I’m still reading the Rebels book and everyone know it’s by the Jenner sisters, Kendall & Kylie. Well, I’m sure they didn’t write the book. Simon and Schuster employed a ghost writer to build the book but it’s initially Kendall & Kylie’s idea what the book is going to be about, where the story will lead to and all that. The writers, Elizabeth Killmond-Roman & Maya Sloan, were given credit.

I’m still a few chapters in the book so I can’t really say much about it. The intro is quite long actually like they were expecting the book to be adapted into a movie. So, that’s what I can say about it so far.

The Story of Us

I heard about it from one of a Youtuber, book reviewer. I don’t know anything much about it except it’s a fiction, adult, romance book. And, I think it’s a short book by the author. I don’t want to say what’s already being said in the summary. Just search for the book to find out. I’m pretty impressed by the book cover. It’s one of those images you want to reblog on Tumblr or pin on Pinterest.

What books are you currently reading? Tweet me @_audreyisms because I love a good book recommendation.

Thank you for reading and come back often!

#HaulinLikeAVillain : Business Card Holder

This is actually not a haul at MOO.com website but is part of a haul I’m focusing throughout BER months. I might own this hashtag for any haul post I’ll be sharing in my blog so it’s easier to track in social media. Feel free to share your haul and in using the hashtag.

Cheap Business Card Holder

I was never in the market for a business card holder. I hardly use my business cards and had it for a long while that the information on it needs updating.

I bought the business card case from MOO.com because I received a coupon gift from Klout.com and I thought I’m not ready to purchase things that’s going to arrive 30 days or more in the mail.

With the Klout.com coupon code, I only paid about £0.50 for the card holder. It’s the cheapest find on the site and I didn’t want my coupon to go to waste.

It’s an Acrylic Business Card Holder in fuschia that is for £6.11. The case has slide-in compartment on both sides. One side is for your personal card and the other side is where you can keep cards you collect. It’s very handy when you go to an event, I think.

What’s sad about my card case is that it came in cracked on one side. They should have wrapped the case in bubble wrap since it’s made of acrylic. Or, did they send me a cracked case because I only paid fifty cents to have them? Tsk tsk tsk.. LOL!

Here’s to my purchased feature in the BER Months 2014. If you are in the look out for a business card holder, that’s cheap, really good quality and colour, check out the MOO.com.

STABILO Fineliner Pens

This post is an ode to my love for pens and notebooks. Well, don’t get me started on notebooks. This post is about the colourful STABILO Point 88 Fineliner pens.

STABILO Fineliner Pens

The set contains 10 different coloured pens with the tip that goes as fine as 0.4mm. The pens are for fine writing, drawing and sketching. It is ideal for working with rulers and stencils. STABILO brand sells coloured pens in 25 colours. The pens are sold individually and as sets in various colour combination. I bought this set at Popular Bookstore in Singapore for S$11.75. You can buy the same set at your nearest National Bookstore in the Philippines.

I no longer write in regular pens. If you flip through the pages of my Starbucks planner, you’ll see how colourful it is. This definitely makes writing on paper so much fun. Writing on paper will never go out of style. Thanks to STABILO.

What are your favourite pens? Let me know in the comments below. I’ll probably look it up and buy some myself. LOL! Thanks for reading!
