#SkypeQik: Qik or It Didn’t Happen!

Nowadays, almost everything becomes viral. The Filipinos way of communication has really evolved over the years: from simple SMS messaging to mobile chat apps. Let's admit it, video has become part of the vocabulary of mobile phone users, so video messaging is just the next logical step in this evolution. Wedding proposal videos, dubsmash, celebrations, are just some of the things that really occupy my newsfeed. Haha. That's why I realized that  a video sharing app is something that is really needed today by users.

Luckily, we now have the Skype Qik!

Skype Qik (pronounced as 'quick') is a quick video messaging/communication app that allows you to exchange instant and quick video messages for free. It enables you to capture videos that are up to 40 seconds long, and and send them to group of friends.

It's very user-friendly! So what can we do with Qik?

• Create groups in a flash: grab a bunch of friends from your phone's address book and start a private chat. Enjoy watching your chat movie grow as more people respond.
• Keep it fresh—messages are automatically erased from Qik after two weeks.
• Pre-record up to 12 short videos and send video clips (Qik Fliks) or when you want to respond, fast. Just drop your Qik Fliks into the chat any time for a more personal smiley.
• Erase your message and it disappears from the conversation - they’ll be removed from everyone else’s phone too.
• Start a conversation any time—no login, usernames, or passwords needed.

Skype Qik  is really a good news to me and my partner. We'll be able to share quick videos of our adventure and share it with our friends. I can also share funny and exciting moments to my relatives abroad for free because of this new app. Isn't that amazing?

Capture the moment. Share the laughs. :)

What are you waiting for? Start using it now! Qik or it didn't Happen!

PR: Tree Top Adventure Baguio - Experience The Extreme

Experience extreme adventure and extreme relaxation at Tree Top Adventure Baguio, the only motorized zipline in the Philippines and the only Team Building facility in Baguio. With seven outdoor activities and team building facilities, located within Camp John Hay, surrounded by pine trees and overlooking breathtaking views, Tree Top Adventure Baguio offers an adventure of a lifetime.

For the thrill seekers who want to experience extreme adventure, you might want to experience their Tree Drop in which you’ll be suspended 60 feet above the ground, mission impossible style and you’ll be falling as fast as 2 to 3 seconds. This Tree Top’s most extreme activity costs Php 150.00 only and this is one way to really quench your thirst for adrenaline rush. You might also want to try rides done in pairs: the Superman Ride and Silver Surfer. As the name implies, you’ll be ziplining, Superman Style, 200 meters long, 150 feet above the ground, but instead of doing it just forwards, you would also be ziplining backwards. Silver Surfer is a 60 degree diagonal motorized zipline in which you’ll be standing on a specialized platform and you’ll be gliding up and down for three cycles. Expect that there would be stops and swings for every cycle. For Php 300.00 and Php 200.00 respectively, you could experience what superheroes feel as they fly and glide through the air.

For those who want to experience extreme relaxation, you could try the Canopy and Funicular ride which costs Php350.00. The Canopy is similar to the concept of cable cars, but instead, you’ll be seated on cable chairs in which you’ll be transferring from one station to another until you complete all eight stations. When you reach the station four of the Canopy, you would walk for around 2 to 3 minutes to be able to reach the connecting ride of Canopy which is the Funicular ride. This ride is similar to the concept of elevator, but, instead of standing up, you’ll be seated. This is at least a way for you to conquer your fear of heights. But, if you really have extreme fear of heights, you could just avail the Trekking and Skywalk in which you would walk around Tree Top’s area and go up the skywalk area, or the viewing deck in which you could see the mountains of Itogon, Benguet, the so called, old Baguio before. You could stay at the Skywalk areas long as you want to take pictures and feel the cold breeze.

If your company plans to have a convention or seminar at Baguio, you might want to experience Tree Top's Team Building Activities which includes two high element activities (Tree Drop and Silver Surfer), five low element activities, boodle lunch and facilitators for just Php 800.00 per head only. The activities would really challenge each member and how they work with their workmates. Work and play, as the cliché says!

You might also want to try another branch of Tree Top Adventure Subic located at the JEST Area, Upper Mau Cubi Point Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
For more information, you could contact (074) 442-0800 or 0932 404 1112. You could also visitwww.treetopadventureph.com. To be more updated, you may like www.facebook.com/treetopadventurecamp and follow Tree Top on Instagram- www.instagram.com/tree_top_adventure.

Metascreen: A Guard Against ‘Sudden Death’

Nearly one baby every hour each day dies abruptly. An estimated 7,000 babies die each year without warning.

Parents are left clueless after the death as the possible causes remain unknown even after undergoing autopsy. All because of the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
SIDS is the unexplained death of babies usually occurring during sleep and striking under unexpected circumstances.

Even a healthy one-year old baby may be a victim of the condition which is often simply attributed to physical and environmental factors.

Studies have shown that babies with physical conditions including brain abnormalities, low birth weight and respiratory infection have higher risk of dying an unexplained death.

Review: Splash Math iTunes App


Introducing Pre-School and Kindergarten Splash Math

It is a great app that combines fun and learning at the same time. Kids will totally learn counting skills, basic math concepts.

This app allows kids to get started with Math practice in a fun way. Ideal for kids 3-6 years in age, it’s a superb math game for kids in preschool and kindergarten. It's good to know that there is an app that helps little kids and toddlers be on the right track so that they will have a very good foundation, specifically in Math concepts.

I will recommend these to my other friends with kids. It will be a good investment.

Introducing Splash Math For Grade 1 to 5

For more than 15 years of my life as a student, I know for fact that one of the challenges of most of the students is the Mathematics subject. That is why more schools today are really focusing on that particular subject. 

 And as a math enthusiast, I know by experience that practice makes perfect. Working through a workbook with endless number of problems can really help hone your skills. But, in this iPad era, it would be great if instead of physical workbooks, we can have apps to help us instead. Truly, technology is really playing a good role today. 

 Splash Math - Grade 1to 5 is a workbook app that provides math exercises for your kids - on my case, my siblings. They are both in elementary level so the app is really a perfect help for their math problems. It is a collection of fun (underwater theme) and interactive math problems.  The apps are grade-specific making it easy for students to practice math skills applicable on their level.

 What I like most about this app is that the lessons are very comprehensive, very modern, and user-friendly. The app features many chapters that cover over 300 skills that grade 1 to 5 students will learn in Math. All of this is in line with elementary educational standards. 

Join the 8 million+ users!

Review: Kids Academy iTunes App

The Preschool and Kindergarten Books, Songs, and Early Reading Games App


Because of the updated version, this app is better now at keeping a child's attention. I must say that this app either your iPad or iPhone into a fun and enjoyable learning center for your kids.

I love this app mainly because of the storyteller being so engaging. Plus the fantastic graphics will surely make the little kids stay much longer and will be willing to learn more.

I also love the fact that this app helps little kids and toddlers to develop early reading skills. They also encourage language development which will be really a good foundation for future.

Alphabet Tracing and Montessori App


As soon as I've finished downloading this app, my goddaughter who just turned two years old, grabbed already my iPad and started playing with it. Her initial reaction was smiling from ear to ear. I know that she's totally enjoying it mainly because of the graphics.

This app is really an educational boost. I love how Kids Academy combine fun and learning at the same time. This is definitely a must-have on my iPad.

Preschool Kindergarten Learning Kids Games


I also let my other niece try this app and even up to this moment, they still can't get enough of the delightful animations that are very interacting at their own pace.

What I also like about this app is the curriculum itself. It is developed and reviewed  by preschool education expert. Well, that really assures me that I will have no regrets in letting my nieces nephews try this app.

It's great for teaching her how to write her letters and numbers. It also teaches her letter sounds and matches pictures with sounds. The graphics are bright and colorful and is able to hold her attention for some time. The app has a variety of different games to choose from so they won't get bored with the same old activity.
