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...]

Letting The World Pass Me By

Hello blog, how are you?

Haven’t planned anything new on here. Mostly because I’ve been creating a new blog of a very specific niche and I have two more to build up. I needed to write new content on that new niche blog so I’m feeling out of sorts. When I’m up to something, a ton of creative new ideas pop up in my brain that I can’t organize them and act on them.

Please be patient. I promise I won’t neglect you for too long.

Watch-The-World-Go-By

Life lately.

Trying to make myself busy, worrying about the next pay check which will be sent to support my brother in College, imagining an Audrey who will wake up energetic the next day to workout but didn’t really happen and being too cooped up inside the house. The only time I get to go out these days is when I have to go to the bank and send money to my brother’s bank account. I’m thinking of going back to full-time employment and keeping my part-time work. The hours I put in to freelance work is no longer enough. It was a good 2 years run with the same boss actually so I can’t let it go yet.

Fact:

As I’m writing this post on a MS Word, I found out that my website won’t let me log in. I’m waiting on Tech Support on the other window. I had a problem with my other blog last October 7. I had them fix it and they might have affected this blog. Not good. The chat support says there’s a 30 minutes wait time. Let’s see how long this post is going to be. LOL!

NaNoWriMo

I’ve learned something new today. That is “NaNoWriMo”. It’s “National Novel Writing Month”. I used to have a very wild imagination that involves characters that seem to take on the personality of my loved characters from books and movies. I was imagining living in a world among them. I even have names for each of the characters in my own little world and the scenario. I always wanted to write a short story. I’m also planning on creating an online magazine that is geared towards women of the same demographics as me. That’s something to add in my to-do list. LOL!

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

HaulinLikeAVillain

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!

#Bookathon : Something Orange Book Read

Here are three great books with the same book cover color.

SomethingOrange Bookathon

“The Catcher in the Rye” was a recommendation in Goodreads.com. The book is a classic and is widely read by kids in American schools. If it’s good enough to be part of English Literature class in the US then it’s worth the read.

“For One More Day” is by one of my favorite author, Mitch Albom. I have been a fan of his work ever since “Tuesday’s with Morrie”. His work is very heart warming and touching. I’ve never been disappointed with any of his books including this one. I also appreciate the size of the font of this particular book.

“The Alchemist” is the very first book I’ve read of Paulo Coelho and has remained one of my favorite books of all time. The orange book cover is the 25th anniversary cover. The book title is embossed, adding texture to the book and the author’s name embedded on the spine. I’ve read the book at a time that was difficult and it has inspired me to turn my life around. I’m rereading the book right now and I’m happy I bought the bigger size book with the bigger font text. I highly recommend this book!

August has now ended and so has #Bookathon August. Until next year, perhaps?

Here are the books I’ve read and reviewed this month.

  1. Audrey Hepburn – A Life in Pictures
  2. The Vagina Monologues
  3. A Wrinkle In Time
  4. The Syrena Series – Of Poseidon
  5. The Manifesto on How To Be Interesting

Let me know if you have read the following books and share with us what you thought of it.

#Bookathon : The Manifesto on How to be Interesting

I am drawn to the book when shown by, again, a Youtuber I follow. If you collect books, you’ll love this one in your library. The sides of the pages are in red colour. Unique, I think! I don’t have the right to collect real hard copy . Our books are in the verge of spilling out of it’s little space in our bedroom. Once again, getting the e-book version in Kobo wasn’t that hard at all.

The Manifesto on How to be Interesting

The book is about a young High School girl named Bree. She walks the halls of school always trying to be invisible but fails miserably at times. She dreams of becoming a somebody at such a young age and to be a well-known writer.

After too many failed attempts at it, and after a hurtful comment from a teacher she value, she decided to try to get a life. A life just like the popular kids in school. The lives she thinks are interesting. Without the knowledge of her only and the closest friend, Holdo, she transformed herself, AKA a much-needed makeover really, into someone like the other girls in school. Holdo finds out his friend’s new version of herself, did not like it at all and placed distance between them in school and out.

Bree likes to make lists and just like what the book title suggests, there is a list, Bree’s list on how to be interesting. The list was published in a blog she does not share to anyone. The new Bree made heads turn and gave her access to the exclusive popular kids circle. All her experiences, the personal information she gets from these popular kids, her love for her teacher and her behavioral problem and by one popular girl were well-documented in her blog.

The Review

The setting is nothing original. Of course, it’s a Young Adult (YA) book! If you watched The Breakfast Club, Perks of Being a Wallflower and Mean Girls movies, this book has elements from them. What I haven’t come across is the blatant description, in a form of a list, on how kids perceive other kids to be or how they think they should be to be interesting. How interesting equals popularity in school.

It’s a fictional book but the lessons you pick up is definitely applicable to this current day and age. The book also touches on issues like bullying, peer pressure, rape, pornography distribution, high school life, forbidden love, family dynamics, only child syndrome, loneliness, friendship, self-harm and more.

This book will make a good book reading for kids in school and followed up by a class discussion.
