A Bit Busy

I haven’t updated this blog for a while. I have been very busy with a lot of things lately. Aside from my work and small project online, I am currently volunteering as a teacher in Vietnam. I am trying to juggle work, project, volunteering and travel at the same time.

So far, it’s been a good experience. I am not saying everything is perfect but all things I am currently encountering here, whether I am busy researching about silvertone guitar models for my project or preparing for my next class, all of them is an opportunity to learn. There is always a valuable lesson in everything.

A few more weeks to go and I will be back at home. My daily activities may not lessen but I am sure I am going to update this blog with something relevant to kawaiiness or geekness. So stay tuned!

Share More Than a Photo, Share the Experience with Veems

Just recently, I chance upon Veems, the latest social photo-sharing app with a twist! It is similar to Instagram and also a messenger rolled into one.

Veems

With Veems, you can share all the photos you want but with it you can share the experience. How? You can record sounds with it! Yup! Sounds! Music! Even your own voice! You are not only sharing plain photos, but you share the experience as well. You can also share your creations on Facebook or Twitter.

Sounds like nothing new? Well, aside sharing photos with sounds, the app is also a messenger. You can communicate with your friends and family anywhere in the world! The app comes with cool stickers too!

If you are not convinced yet, I suggest you try it for yourself. Download Veems on your smartphones (IOS and Android) here: http://veems.in/download

Attended Women Techmakers Event in Cagayan de Oro City

Last Sunday, I was privileged to attend Women Techmakers Cagayan de Oro City’s International Women’s Day Event Celebration ~ Connect. Create. Celebrate. held at Marianne Suites.

Women Techmakers is Google’s global program and brand for women in technology. This community is composed of women Googlers who are passionate about empowering other women in technology through increased visibility, community, and resources.

The event was opened by Ms. Josan Astrid Dometita, GDG (Google Developers Group) Cagayan de Oro Community Manager, who herself is a coder by day and designer by heart. She found her love in technology when she was in college.

Among the speakers that day, Engr. Aisa Mijeno is one of them. She is the Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer of SALT.PH, a company that produces a sustainable and cost effective ecologically designed lamp powered by “tap water” and “table salt.” Yup, you heard me right, tap water and table salt, awesome right?

Engr. Mijeno shared how she came upon this project and how they plan to reach-out communities with no electricity. They want that these communities will be able to benefit from these sustainable and cost effective ecologically designed lamps.

The next speaker was Ms. Shay Ramos. She is the President of Robogals CDO, a community that aims to increase female participation in engineering, science and technology. She shared about Robogals as an international organization, what their goals are and what they have done locally. They also shared to us their future events.

Nowadays, many women are into engineering, science and technology; though not that much, but still greater in participation compared to decades ago. I have seen a lot of women now being empowered to do things they want and not being hindered because of their gender.

Though I have to leave early due to a prior engagement, I am so happy that I have attended the event. I felt so empowered. It was very beneficial to me and I am looking forward to attend future events with Women Techmakers CDO!
