Enjoy Exclusive Lazada Deals Through WeChat!

Since I’m mostly online, especially because of my job, it’s no wonder I do most of my shopping online too. On top of my favorite online stores is definitely Lazada. In fact, I bought my mom’s Cherry Mobile Flare phone from them instead of lining up for hours at the Cherry Mobile stores, and we also used Lazada for our virtual Christmas exchange gift among my colleagues at work. And since I’ve been using WeChat too, I’m excited to find out about these exclusive deals that Lazada is offering to WeChat users. Check out below how you can take advantage of this deal! 🙂

Party Planning Made Easy with WeChat

If there’s one thing I love doing, it’s planning parties, get-togethers or events in general. I love being in control of the guest list, food and drinks, and the programme too. 😀 You can ask any of my long-time friends – they can attest to how I enjoy organizing any social gathering. This is also why my bro and I decided to start The Burp Society to plan meet-ups with fellow Certified Foodies. 😉

Aside from social gatherings, I also find it fun to plan our trips. In 2012, we went to Bohol and I arranged the whole thing for 14+ people. Last year, in Palawan, I organized our vacation too. Thankfully, there are tools you can use now such as social media networks, email and chat apps like WeChat so you can communicate efficiently and effectively with everyone involved.

Check out below how WeChat can help you plan a party or get-together in a short amount of time. 🙂

Backup Your Chat History in WeChat

I’m a backup freak. I’ve learned my lesson the hard way during my college years. I lost articles and important photos after my computer and hard drive crashed. I failed to keep a backup of my files. Since then, I make sure all my important files, photos, and even my blogs are backed up regularly.


Aside from my external hard drive, I also keep backups using DVDs and I use online storage systems. I feel secure when I know that I have at least 2 backups of anything significant such as travel photos and notes I take for my blog articles.

There are also instances when I needed to keep a backup of my chat history with someone, such as when it’s about a pretty significant topic that I need to refer to at a later time. If you’re particular about this, especially when it comes to work or a business transaction, WeChat has a feature that enables you to backup your chat history easily. Read on.

3 Times when Chat History Backup Saves You from Hell

Many forms of emergency, more often than not, require information retrieval. However, unlike good old hard copies, communications done digitally aren’t as easy to keep and store in boxes for safekeeping. For this, social mobile app WeChat acts as your digital notepad thanks to its Chat History Backup feature, which saves conversation histories and restores them to any device for up to seven (7) days.

The simple 3-step process of WeChat’s Chat History Backup starts with selecting “Settings” > “General” > “Chat History Backup” and then clicking “Back Up” for the conversations you’d like to store.
