YouTube Fanfest 2016!

Posted on

Kianna has been dying to go to the YouTube FanFest ever since she first heard about it. She wasn’t able to attend last year but this year she was in for a surprise! I reached out to my friend Christian Melanie Lee of Manila Concert Junkies and lo and behold we scored invites to the party. Melanie wanted it to be a surprise for Kianna so she only found out she was going when we were already on our way to the World Trade Center where it was held this year. Check out the video way down below to check out her reaction and to see some highlights of the show.

From last year’s venue, The Marriot to this year’s World Trade Center you can tell it became a huge success. This year’s FanFest featured 13 popular YouTube personalities. The event is totally free BUT the tickets went so fast. Believe it or not the 2nd sign up had the tickets being marked as reserved in less than a minute! Unbelievable!

Kianna was there to catch Connor Franta whose focus is lifestyle vlogs and short films. I couldn’t believe (or maybe I’m just too old!) at how much adulation was in the air for these personalities. The moment their names were announced everyone was screaming (it seemed like bloody murder to me!).

The YouTube FanFest shows just how far reaching these personalities are and the kind of influence they have on the youth today. What I liked about it was that the chosen personalities all had a positive impression which is important especially for those who are on YouTube (what seems like 24/7) most of the day.

Although these kinds of events are obviously NOT my thing, to help Kianna attend was one of the best moments.

She was starstruck and happy to see Connor Franta. Aside from the obvious reasons that he’s funny and cute he’s an inspiration.

Cute Panda Finds

Posted on

My daughter Kianna is a huge fan of anything pandas. I think if she could, she’d have a whole room full of panda stuff! When I was looking for a powerbank for her phone I came across quite a few cute panda finds. I was thrilled to see this Panda powerbank on Ensogo Philippines and so I grabbed it.

It came in a cute pink striped box and I wasn’t expecting it to be as big as it was but Kianna loved it. This must be a popular item because it’s already out of stock. You can pre-oder though if you’re dying to have one.

The Panda 20,000 mAh Powerbank was available in 4 Designs, Heart, Blush, Puffy Eyes, and Calm. Unfortunately, the one she wanted was already out of stock so she got Calm.

Specifications:

  • Battery Capacity: 20000mAh
  • Battery Type: Lithium polymer battery
  • Input: DC 5V / 1A
  • Output: DC 5V / 1A; DC 5V / 2A
  • 4 x LED power indicator
  • Interface: 1 x Micro USB input port, 2 x USB2.0 output port
  • Compatible Models: Universal, iPhone / iPod / MP3 / MP4 / GPS / PSP / Digital Camera / Cellphone and other digital devices

That’s pretty much a lot of mumbo jumbo but I can tell you that it works perfectly with her Lenovo A319 phone.

Since Christmas is coming up, I decided to take a look at my other cute panda finds on Ensogo.

Here’s a super cute Panda Fleece Hooded Wearable Blanket. Other animal designs are available.

This is something I’m eyeing for Kianna, a 2-in-1 Panda Cushion & Fleece Blanket. I think she’ll love it!

If you have any suggestions where I can get anything Panda, I’d love to hear it! I’m still scouting for Panda items for Kianna this Christmas.

Unboxing the Lenovo A319

Posted on

With the way the world is today it’s important that a child has a cellphone. A means of communication to keep in touch with them and know they are okay and safe. My kids have had cellphones since they were 12 years old. I don’t believe in spoiling a child by buying them an extravagant or expensive cellphone. That’s never been my way of bringing them up. I think that’s why they have an appreciation for the things that they get. When Kianna needed a new phone I opted for this Lenovo A319 that I found on Ensogo Philippines.

It was reasonable priced, has a dual sim and has apps that she can use for school and her own pleasure. Now you might be hesitant with all the things that go on through social media but I’ve also found a solution for that. I use the Dinnertime Plus app which is available on Android and can be used on a parent’s Android or iPhone.

The Lenovo RocStar (A319) Smartphone gives an exceptional music experience. Kianna has said that the sound of her phone is louder than other phones. She listens to alot of 5SOS songs and I haven’t heard a complaint yet.

It has a 10.16cm (4) Display and is more than adequate when it comes to watching YouTube videos or surfing. The camera is so-so meaning you get clear and crisp pictures in daylight but is of lower quality when not using ideal lighting. With a Dual Core Processor and Android 4.4 Kit Kat she has fast enough speed and use from her Lenovo phone.

Her phone kit came with a Globe Prepaid Sim pack which has 2 months FREE internet. She’s been getting good use from that. Priced at Php4445, I felt that I was getting value for money.
