NEED: Canon Inspic S and Canon EOS M50 Mark II Mirrorless Camera

Monday, April 12, 2021

     After five years, the much-needed blogging/vlogging gears upgrade happened last month. The decision did not happen overnight but thinking of what brand to get is a no-brainer because it's like the song "Always Been You" by Imajin, hahaha! There are a couple of brands to consider but Canon has always been in my mind and in my heart. It's what my vlogger friends use and recommend especially if you are looking for a super nice camera to take photos and shoot videos for online content creation. No wonder why the infamous Canon Powershot G7 X Mark is dubbed as the "most recommended vlogging camera" by beauty and lifestyle vloggers when the rise of video content hit the Philippine shores some years ago.

     Fast forward today, I finally get a hold of these babies that I'll be using to create high-quality content in this blog and in our vlogs (my husband is a content creator too a.ka. Pinoy Drunken Chef). Since we are going to use these gears mostly for vlogging, instead of getting the latest Canon G7 X Mark III (that's also really nice if you're a newbie vlogger and prefers a small and compact camera) we opted for another model of Canon camera that's selling like hotcakes since it was launched last February this year- Canon EOS M50 Mark II Mirrorless Camera. Get to know more about Canon EOS M50 Mark II and my other baby Canon Inspic S (that I'll also be using to shoot random photos but in a more fun way) after the jump!

Feature: JBL Jr. Headphones

Wednesday, November 08, 2017

     Kids these days are so into gadgets. I presume that kids of this generation would love to receive a new iPad, mobile phone, game console, or accessories that they will use in the gadgets that they already have. We cannot blame technology if our kids will choose these over stuff toys and other playset but we can control the pros and cons a gadget brings.

     My son, Kenzo loves to watch YouTube videos. He's into race cars and musical instruments. He's into music as his dad while he also loves to play games like momma. On a long road trip, I know he needs a headphone that delivers remarkable sound so he can still enjoy the trip while watching videos or listening to music. Enter JBL Jr.- brightly colored wired and wireless lightweight headphones that let kids enjoy music, movies and more while providing the promise of safety and durability.

4 Next-Level Smartphone Security Features of 2017

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

     Failing to update your smartphone with the latest operating system or security fix could allow hackers to more easily gain complete control of it — without you even noticing. According to NBC News, Broadpwn, a vulnerability in a Wi-Fi chipset that affects millions of Android and iOS devices, is the latest worm that can even use an infected smartphone as an access point to attack other devices in the area.

     But while this Wi-Fi vulnerability can spread quickly and take over your smartphone within mere minutes, it's also preventable with a simple patch. That should be a wake-up call for some Americans who don't update their devices, intentionally or otherwise. According to Consumer Reports, only 36 percent of smartphone owners use a four-digit screen lock of any kind, and just 31 percent routinely back up their data, including photos and contacts.

It's a sad experience when the computer shop nearby is already closed so you have no choice but to wake up early and wait for them to open that's why if you have a desktop or a laptop at home, a printer is a must! Speaking of the printer, let me share with you what Canon Philippines has to offer plus the highlights of Canon Pix Mommy Weekend Event.

Pork Spare Ribs Tinola Recipe + OPPO F1s Feature

Thursday, March 30, 2017

     Hello dearies! I've been trying to cook for the past few months because we temporarily moved to a condo unit but I can't get the hang of it. Hahaha! Good thing I have a husband who loves to cook that's why he's the master of our kitchen.

     For this feature, I'm going to share with you our favorite dish- Tinola but we are not using the usual ingredient. Our default Tinola is made of Pork Spare Ribs. I find it tastier and the meat is tender after cooking it using a pressure cooker. To make this Filipino dish picture perfect, I used my OPPO F1s phone in taking the photo of the ingredients and the finished product. Scroll down to see the recipe and why I recommend OPPO F1s in taking foodstagram-worthy photos :)
