The Smartphone App Known As iButterfly (Philippines)

Hello everyone,

Last Friday (June 8) I was invited to go to an event at Megamall, it was the iButterfly catch-up event that was held at the Atrium, with special guests like Tim Yap, Tessa-Prieto Valdez, Jenni Epperson, and more (I don’t know who any of those people are). The poster said that the event would start at 3pm, I left the place at 4:25pm and the event had not started yet. I think it started at 5pm. And I got word that my name was called because I had won something… lesson leaned: don’t leave so early, or just get there late!

iButterfly is a smartphone app that helps customers experience a new and fun way to shop, it uses 3 technologies:  Augmented Reality, for seeing the iButterflies in the real world, Motion Sensors for catching iButterflies using your phone and your phone’s Global Positioning System or GPS for finding where the iButterflies are.  It is definitely a unique way of enjoying promos from partner stores within the participating malls.

Here’s a list of some participating stores:

Throw Your Donuts Away Day!

Hello everyone,

This morning on my way home from work, while I was walking to the train station, I tried something different. This morning (or I should say yesterday morning since it’s now 1:23 am) I walked slower than usual because I’m sick and not feeling well. On my way to the train I saw some donuts… on the ground! Someone, or some people, just decided to throw away their donuts like trash and probably felt like littering donuts.

Isn’t it enough that people are littering their trash and just throwing it away on the side of the street instead of throwing it in a trashcan. Not condoning people to do so because really how lazy have people become that they can’t even throw their own trash away in a trashcan? But now people are throwing away donuts? Was it Throw Away Your Donuts Day yesterday? Was there some event that I didn’t know about that required people to throw away their half-eaten donuts (which some of them weren’t even eaten at all). And as I’ve stated before they were littered, which means they were all over the place and not just in one location.

Looking back I should have taken some pictures.

My point in this post is please take care of the environment. Throw your trash (and your half-eaten donuts) in the TRASHCAN! It’s not like I believe in Global Warming or whatever, but just throw away your trash so that our surrounding (your’s and mine) would look at least a little nicer and won’t stink as much.

Thank you for reading. 

Don’t get me wrong, I love donuts as much as this guy does!
