The Power of Social Media



Millions of people around the globe have mobile phones and have access to the WORLD WIDE WEB. Our world has become easier to communicate with our friends and relatives from other countries, and we can video chat them almost every day as long as we have access to the INTERNET. Unlike many years ago, here in the Philippines if we want to talk to our parents who work abroad we have to ask our neighbor who has a landline that our parents/relatives will call us on this day and time etc. This time many have their own mobile phones and have social media accounts such as FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM. For me, it's one of the BEST software ever created, it keeps us connected at updated to our loved ones but somehow it's one of the platforms to STALK other people.

Because of these social media platforms, some people became ENVIOUS of someone's life.  HE/she compares their life to someone else. Most of us who has a Facebook and Instagram account post their photos of their family, travel, new bag, new shoes, new gadget and whatever you want to share either to BRAG or you are just happy to share it on social media. 

I, myself post photos of my travel, gadget or any product as some of it are SPONSORED by an Airline, Hotel/Hostel, and Brand/company that I collaborate because I am a BLOGGER and our number 1 duty is to promote it on our SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS not to brag but that is how we exchange business with the company/brand that we collaborate with. 

Not everyone understands the nature of my work or maybe they just simply do not know that I am a BLOGGER in the first place or they just don't know what a BLOGGER do. 

DO I HAVE TO DEFEND MYSELF FROM SOMEONE WHO'S TELLING LIES BEHIND MY BACK, BULLYING AND STABBING ME AT MY BACK?

Yes! Of course! It's just how we defend ourselves from these human beings who don't know HOW TO GET A LIFE of their own! These people are simply INSECURE and not happy with their lives so they find flaws about you just to be miserable like them. 

We all have problem and issues in life so why compare yours? Do you want to be in my shoe instead? Go ahead, be my guest! I just can not stand these humans who feel like they are superior to everybody. Just because you have a career from a different country you need to belittle others especially the HOUSEWIVES. We all have our own lives now and we should be focusing on our spouse/partner, children, work and not other people's lives!

Have you experience bullying or perhaps gossip from a someone you may know or not know? How did you handle it? Let's use our social media account to empower and inspire other people and not to drag them down and find flaws of their life.

TOP 4 PHOTO EDITOR APPS

As a Blogger who is always online (like every day) on her social media accounts and actively uploading photos on Instagram is not an easy job. Yes! Blogging used to be a HOBBY for me when I was a bored stay-at-home mom a few years back and now I am proud to say that little by little I am earning now from blogging. 

Aside from FREE travels around the Philippines and other countries, I also get sponsorship from different brands, company, and even tourism boards. In return, I have to blog and post a photo on my social media accounts. I do not just take photos and post it online without using these free and paid apps


These apps are my TOP 4 PHOTO EDITOR faves:


1. VSCO 

This is my most fave app of all. It's FREE to download and some of its themes are for FREE but if you wanna get those perfect INSTAGRAM feed themes then I suggest you buy some of its theme ranging from 50 PHP / 1 USD to 1,500 PHP / 30 USD (complete theme). 


2. SNAPSEED

If you are not contented on your photo before you post it on your social media accounts then SNAPSEED will help you have that HIGH BRIGHTNESS background. Recently I changed my INSTAGRAM theme wherein all my photos have frames. This app can crop, framed your photos and even beautify faces. 


3. ENLIGHT

I accidentally downloaded this app when it was advertised on my Instagram. I paid 2 USD / 100 PHP for this app. The good thing about this app is that you can play around your photos especially if you have a lot of landscape photos because you can tweak and do a doble-exposure pictures. I fint it hard to use since I barely tweak my photos. A simple highlight and brightness for me is fine. 



 4. ADOBE LIGHTROOM MOBILE APP

One of the best computer photo editors is ADOBE LIGHTROOM, so if you forget to bring your laptop and you needed a quick fix and edit on your photos then this app is your new best friend. Not only its easy to use but the basic HSL (hue, saturation, luminance)  quick fix has it. 

So, there you have it. Do you also use these apps? Did you find it easy or hard to use? Or if you have any other mobile photo editor app that you use let me know so I can check it.

It's Time To Have An Online Registration For Vehicles In The Philippines


Are you a car owner in the Philippines? How many vehicles do you have at home or perhaps for your business? Some people say owning a car is a luxury but honestly, it's not even considered an asset (for me) because every year the value of it decreases unlike owning a house and lot or a farm/lot annually it increases its value. However, owning a car especially for a mom like me who doesn't have a nanny anymore and who brings her child to school every day and run errands every week it also adds up to our list is the registration/renewal of our car in LTO. 

4 Days in Cambodia



Our 4th country to visit in our South East Asia trip - Cambodia. It is located north of the border of Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos. There are about 2,000 temples found all over Cambodia and some still haven't discovered yet. Phnom Penh as its capital and uses Cambodian Riel and USD as their monetary. 2 of the popular destination is Siem Reap where we spent 3 days and Phnom Penh for 1 night before heading to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. 

HUNGRY? Food Panda Delivery is the answer!


HUNGRY? Food Panda Delivery is the answer!

As a mom who is tied-up with house chores, taking care of my child, and attending events sometimes I didn't have time to cook especially if I got lots of things to do in one whole day. Instead of driving to the nearest fast food chain in my house and of course it will take up much time to drive and will not be able to finish whatever I'm doing that day at home, I will order PIZZA online. 

Much To See in Chiang Rai Thailand


Chiang Rai is a province located in the northern part of Thailand, and the closer to the border of Myanmar and Laos. White Temple, Blue Temple and Elephant Camps and Sanctuary are also located here in Chiang Rai, Thailand. About 3-hour drive away from Chiang Mai where we spent 3 days after our Bangkok trip.
