I chat, you chat, WECHAT in Malaysia!

[ADV] 

Ever found yourself wishing there was just one phone app that can Message,
Voice and Video Call in a user friendly platform and better yet for FREE? 

Well, I never knew I did :)

Was invited for the WECHAT Glitz and Glam launch in Velvet, and even though I was sick like a poisoned puppy for the last week, I made a point to stop by.
New social media tool, I'm such a tool for!



It was hosted quite appropriately by Malaysian social media queen Leng Yein and filled with tons of the bloggerati friends like Chammaine Tan and Mike Yip!

Me, Leng Yein and a WECHAT Malaysia rep sandwiched by WECHAT ambassador Felixia Yeap and an AVAST ambassador for some photo wall lovin'

SUMMARY - AVAST software has an all new version and protects over 150 million active users worldwide. In addition to that, their official distributor, APAC Venture, announced a collaboration with China's Tencent to launch WECHAT in Malaysia.

Explaining why everyone was there to looksie looksie :)
Also caught up with Careen and Isabelle!

The event had lots of activities that, unfortunately, I failed to participate or appreciate due to my cough and slight fever.

*sad face*

But even as I blew the joint early, I was so busy fiddling with my newly downloaded WeChat, 
I could have easily added ankle sprain from toppling down the step to my list of predicaments.

Things I dig about WECHAT?
Photobucket
1. From the second I downloaded and synch-ed with Facebook, I had dozens of friends.
2. Can text, group chat, voice and video call, FREE.
3. 'Moments' which allows you to take/edit photos to send or add to an album.
4. Super fun Emoticons with a wider range of expressions fr say, Whatsapp? :P

Photobucket

5. QR code available to chat without sharing actual HP number.
6. Easy way to add friends nearby by simple shaking your phone. (I de-activated mine though for safety reasons lol) 

Photobucket

And my favourite feature is...

6. The possibility of meeting new people around the world at random by throwing a 'bottle in the sea'.

Mad fun and free advertising :)

FYI, WeChat was ranked NO.1 in Itunes Store under 'Top Free Apps' so don't be surprised to see EVERYONE on it already ;)

Consider the bar for free Iphone apps, raised!
Download your's today and get chattin'

Hope for once my blog has been current and informative.
Once in a while I do step out of the unreality to get a breath of fresh air ;)

Photobucket

Ending with a pointless picture of how long my hair is getting as I contemplate what to do with it.


Have fun WECHAT-ing all!
