What I Learned From My Weekend Social Media Detox.

In this day and age, we live in a constant and consistent updatable (if there’s even such a word) lifestyle of connection and being “in-the-know”. The moment we feel as though we’re missing out on something important, we feel the pinch. Similar to what addicts feel when drugs and/or sex are out of their reach….

It’s ‘Nut’hing Short of Pure Bliss.

I finally did myself a favour and persuaded my husband to take us to this neat little artisan ice cream shoppe in SS15, Subang Jaya called ‘Sangkaya’. It can be found on the same lane as the DirectD Retail & Wholesale physical stores, and along the same row as the Fatbaby Ice Cream parlour too….

Oh, ‘APP’ solutely!

Who would have thought that Waze could help so many drivers today, to locate their destinations and avoiding as much traffic congestion as possible. Whoever came up with the idea for Waze was one helluva genius (geniuses, ‘app’ arently, because it was created by Israeli trio Uri Levine, software engineer Ehud Shabtai, and Amir Shinar)!…

#PRAYFORPARIS

I woke up this morning to some really terrible news. That France had been on the receiving end of several deadly attacks. Was it the work of terrorists? I have yet to find out. So far I’ve read, 43 were killed with dozens injured and the French police are in the midst of their investigation…

The Canteen: An Awesome Review.

My Sunday began just like any other Sunday — oversleeping because I’ve slept far too late on Saturday night. How typical of me. No matter how many times I berate myself for having such awful sleeping habits, you can’t blame me either because I bust my chops on weekdays, sleeping early just so I can…

KGB: A Killer Burger Review.

In case you’re wondering, yes, KGB happens to be the name of this hipster burger joint that recently mushroomed all around Klang Valley, starting with a branch I believe in Bangsar Baru, Kuala Lumpur. Or so I think, seeing as I grew up in that neighbourhood and that was the first place where I spotted…

Don’t Tweet About It.

There recently have been cases of individuals taking selfies in rather dangerous locations and many have lost their lives while trying to have their few seconds of fame. Here are a couple of recent headlines that you should heed before taking a high-risk selfie: Last year (2014), a Russian teenager plunged 30ft to her death…

Like, Share, Reach. Repeat.

Did you just see what I did there? Read the tagline in the image above. Now there’s a catchphrase you don’t see very often. Use all the words that relate to Facebook engagement and you’ll get a very social media motto for your marketing means. It has always been about reaching out. Reach out to…

Which Social Media Are You?

Like my husband said to me last night, social media exploded onto the scene of the World Wide Web just when youngsters of the latest Net Generation were born. This only means that those born after the Generation X or Y will be very well-read with smartphones, tablets, laptops and computers, and all other things…

Put Your ROI on the Social Scale.

Is it just me or does anyone find the topic on social media measurement and metrics rather confusing and difficult to understand and comprehend? I’m sure there are many Social Media Administrators, Managers and Consultants out there who have to go through the hassle of Social Media reporting and analytics at every month-end. The numbers…
