25 Things :)

Standard

Hi loves!
How are you all doing? 🙂

So, I am really really busy right now with all the requirements in school. I am literally buried in schoolwork and I wish I could take a break from this. I am happy that I was. at least, able to spare a few minutes to reblog this awesome post fron the Thought Catalog. That site’s got lotsa massively interesting stuff. 😉

This is all for now, hope you enjoy reading!

Hi there loves!

How are you?

I haven’t been feeling quite myself lately, and I’m always bored or tired or just plain blah. HAHA. Well, I hope I get back to the old me soon. While that’s not happening yet, I’ll just make a very short post, straight to the point.

For the love of Thor!

For the past couple of days or so, a gazillion Thor puns and memes have been circulating around the web, especially in social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter. At first, it was actually funny but later on, when everyone started pitching in their own Thor puns, it became annoying to the extreme. It was just too much! People even went so far as to start on other Avengers characters like Loki, Hulk and Hawkeye. It’s just cuh-rey-zeeee!

So while I was writing this post, I tried looking for photos as evidence. As I was contemplating whether to include one in this post or not, I saw one GIF that really made me laugh despite myself. It’s not so much the pun that I like but the GIF itself. It’s just so hilarious! HAHA. Here it is!

funny puns - Happy Thorsday!

I hope you had a good laugh too. But despite that, I hope they stop all these Thor jokes. My apologies for being out of sorts. =))

ZaZAZOOm!

Hey there loves!

How’ve you been?

As you all notice, my posting schedule of late has been really sporadic. That’s because the summer term, which was when I started this blog, is so much lighter in load compared to the normal term so I’m busier now than I was during summer. But I will try my hardest to at least blog every other day if I can’t do it on a daily basis. So what’s my post all about today? It’s about an ad that popped up while I was watching Running Man online. I usually just ignore ads, but this one caught my attention. What is it then?

Karaoke Nights, Incoming! 😛

So as I’ve mentioned, an ad popped up while I was watching Running Man on the web. Sadly, the screen cap I made of it disappeared so I couldn’t show you the ad, but of course I can show you the app itself. :> The app I’m talking about is zazoo, which is available only on Chrome, for FREE! Now what does this app do?

Zazoo let’s you have karaoke right where your Google Chrome is! Haha. By this I mean once you install zazoo, whenever you go to YouTube using Chrome, you can already start singing along to your fave tunes from your fave artists. Actually, you can also just click the zazoo icon on your toolbar and pick a song then it automatically goes to YouTube for you. It’s just easy to use! You choose a song, they provide you the lyrics (Though it’s only for English songs, I think. Other languages aren’t supported).

What greets you when you open YouTube 😀

There are two ways to singing along with zazoo and it actually depends on their database. The two ways are:

1.) Full karaoke mode. You choose a song from their database and just sing along or choose a song in YouTube then if it’s in their “karaoke database” (my own term), the lyrics will appear on the video.

This is the full karaoke mode. The lyrics are found at the bottom of the video.

2. Side by side mode. You can choose a song in YouTube which is not in their “karaoke database” and they will just provide you with the lyrics beside the video. You can still sing along in this mode, but you’d have to scroll every once in a while to follow the lyrics. HAHA.

Side by side mode. The lyrics are found at the side of the video.

Being a frustrated singer (HAHA!) I find this app great! Now I can finally have karaoke nights whenever I want, just as long as I have my laptop with me. Yay me! I don’t have to go elsewhere and I don’t have to pay. And what’s even better is, I can still enjoy it with my friends! Just no score competition though. =))

On a side note…

I love Maroon 5’s new song, One More Night! OMG, it’s <3. And Minka Kelly is just so pretty! They make a good pair, Adam and Minka! HAHA. Sorry, Anna. 😛 Anywaysss, here’s the MV. 🙂

Before I end, I just wanna shout out to my younger sister, Coleen, who celebrated her 15th birthday yesterday. Happy Birthday! ❤

That’s all for tonight, loves.

Simply adORABLE Watch! ;)

Standard

Hey there loves! 🙂

How are you?

I’m sorry I’ve been MIA again for a week. It’s just that, after getting done with OrSem, acads just started coming in from left and right. Truly, third year is the most crucial part of our course. We have lots and lots of papers to do, what with Marketing and Operations Management in one semester. Marketing’s extra challenging for our batch because we were asked to come up with new products targeted at class C&D.

Speaking of Marketing class, my post today is about our first ever homework in Marketing.

adORABLE 😉

For our first ever (and actually the only one as of the moment) homework in Marketing, our prof asked us to choose three recent TV ads (Yes, that’s why it’s adORABLE. Hihi) we like and another three we dislike. As soon as she said this, I immediately had in mind two TV ads that I like. In truth, they were the only two among the six that I strongly felt about. The rest were just out of doing the homework (Sorry, Ma’am!). So what are the two ads that have gotten my favor? Let me tell you (in no particular order. HAHA). 🙂

Life’s Simple Joys

The Canon IXUS Camera advertisement proves to be, in my opinion, an entertaining watch because it has a “feel good” vibe. I think it’s an effective TVC because it shows us the simple joys in life that we sometimes take for granted and at the same time it shows how the product can help us capture these moments and turn them into memories. The ad tells us to loosen up every once in a while and just enjoy life with the following statements: “Growing up can wait. Glamour can wait. Self-control can wait.” The song they used and the scenes that were shown in the TVC also strengthened the message that they wanted to convey while effectively pointing out the part that the product plays in moments like those shown.

A Thousand Miles

Another TV ad that has caught my attention and gained my favor is Smart’s newest commercial for their wireless internet. For one, the background music “Thousand Miles” is one of my favorite songs. But besides that, I also love the plot and how it seems like they really put a lot of thought into the creation of the ad. Watching it, I felt like I was drawn into the story of Meg and Marco. It kept me on my toes waiting for the moment when they finally see each other and it evoked a warm feeling in me in the end even though they didn’t really meet face to face. It was not so much the product that was sold out to me but the story; yet because of the appeal the ad has to my emotions, I might just want to buy the product.

Don’t these commercials just strike you or something? I simply love them! ❤ What about you, have any ads that you like? Share! 🙂
