WeChat Party 2013
WeChat Party 2013 few days back.
When I told a friend that I was attending WeChat party, he said, "WeChat? You mean the app that is like **** app and **** app mixed together?"
At first I didn't get what he meant but after further understanding of WeChat, I realized he was right! WeChat is a new and powerful mobile communication tool that has features of several apps and mobile communication tools combined together! Features like what? You'll see, you'll see.
But first a picture of Kah Mon and I (and WeChat plushie) with the event backdrop.
An opening dance to get the party started.
Awi Rafael was one of the many others who performed that night.
Our host for the night was Rudy, could barely recognize him now that he has longer locks.
One of the fun features of WeChat introduced to us live on the spot, group chat!
Once we scanned the QR code, we can chat live with the rest of the people in the room who also scanned it. Check out the screen which was broadcasting the live group chat!
Here are some other features and functions of WeChat:
text messaginghold-to-talk voice messagingbroadcast messagingvideo-chatphoto/video sharinglocation sharingcontact information exchangefind new friends nearby to talk to
I'd say some of those functions are pretty neat. In case you're wondering, WeChat supports up to 17 languages and is available on iOS, Android, Symbian, Blackberry and Windows Phone devices.
But why am I telling you all these as if you're attending a lecture right? The best way to learn is by experience so if you have a phone, go download WeChat and try it for yourself!

Also, check out this new WeChat Malaysia commercial featuring their 2 new ambassadors - Lisa Surihani and Shaheizy Sam:
Back to the party, they had an instant photo machine too! They know us so well.
And there were so many other familiar faces. In fact, the entire Neverland was filled with bloggers and acquaintances which made it pretty awesome.
Oh and we had these cute little WeChat cupcakes!
Actually I've been using WeChat for a couple of weeks now and I'm especially loving the hold-to-talk voice messaging. I do that a lot with my mom. HAHAHA. That's right, my mom was the one who got me to download WeChat in the first place. Hipster mom.
Anyway, let's chat on WeChat! You can always ask me for my WeChat ID.
