Vivo X21 is an eyecatcher at the Mobile Fest 2018



Global smartphone brand Vivo has made a good impression on tech enthusiasts at the SM Cyberzone’s Mobile Fest 2018.

To explain all the goods on Vivo’s latest flagship smartphone—the X21, the brand tapped respected tech experts Mark Macanas of TechPinas and Alora Uy Guerrero of Revu.

The experts discussed Vivo X21’s unlocking technologies, dual rear camera, AI Selfie Camera, AI Game Mode, Hi-Fi, performance, and design.

Alora Uy Guerrero of Revu and Mark Macanas of TechPinas had nothing but praises for Vivo X21.

Macanas and Guerrero mentioned that there are two ways to unlock the Vivo X21, through the Face ID Access with Infrared that accurately identifies a user’s facial features even in nighttime and the In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology that replaces the rear fingerprint sensor. Vivo is the industry pioneer of In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology.

Aside from pioneering features, the pair also talked about Vivo X21’s photography-related specs. The 12 megapixel+5MP dual rear camera and the 12MP front camera with Dual Pixel Sensor. These impressive hardware specs are even boosted by the X21’s AI features like the AI Face Beauty and AI HDR.

In terms of performance, the Vivo X21 proved to be a hard worker, said Macanas and Guerrero. After all, the X21 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660AIE chip that can process complex AI and neural computing. It has a 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM to improve the speed of launching, loading, and switching including large and complex mobile games.

To complement all these, Vivo X21 has a 6.28-inch 19:9 FHD+ FullView™ Display with a 90.3% screen-to-body ratio for every user’s viewing pleasure.

Moreover, Guerrero, a music-lover, even praised Vivo for continuing its Hi-Fi legacy in the X21. The smartphone is equipped with Deep Field technology, which was developed by Vivo to provide panoramic surround, mega bass, clear voice effects and various environmental audio effects, allowing users to customize their audio experience.

Ways on how to remedy an itchy throat

From the sudden change of season- to the extreme sunny weather to non-stop rain due to the tropical storm that hit the Asia-Pacific region. This also the sign were we can expect an increase of health cases such as common colds, cough, and even Influenza virus or flu virus, with this I have known numbers of students who come and seek for first-aid intervention a couple of weeks ago since the class started.
Influenza virus is communicable and can be transferred from one patient to another person most especially when the immune system is weak. And, with that, I am one of the unlucky people who was contacted with flu, along with a cough and colds. 

What are the things you need to do to prevent you from getting sick?

  • Rest and recuperate- get enough sleep (preferably 7-8 hours)
  • Eat more- eat nutritious food, a balanced diet (protein rich source, fiber, vegetables, and fruits)
  • Fluids and liquid- hydrate your body with water, juices, and soup
  • Daily pill- take your essential vitamins daily (vitamin C, Iron, Calcium) 
A healthy immune system will fight and combat possible sickness when one is in contact. 

If your body cannot defend sudden sickness due to other extra predisposing factors. It is time for you to do some remedy to help your body regain strength and recover fast. 

Influenza virus comes with a cough and colds, along with throbbing headache pain, itchy throat, and hoarseness of voice. These are the symptoms I had for days now. I don't have the fever anymore but the coughing and the itchy throat which made me cough so hard and continuously especially at night. The reason also that my sleep is interrupted in the middle of the night. 

My medications are over the counter drugs such as a mucolytic tablet, an effervescent tablet (Fluimucil) which acts as a cough drug, throat lozenges, and I added more from my usual multi-vitamin intake. I tripled the amount of my fluid intake since I started getting sick. It has been six days now and still, I am dealing with this terrible itchy, non-stop cough.  

When you talk about home remedies there are a lot of ways you can follow and practice. It may sound like a trail and error method but soon one will work out fine just for you. Here are some of my go-to home remedies when I know and feel that the throat starting to itch. 

1 Gargle warm water with salt, especially at night before you sleep. 

2. A concoction of honey and lemon juice in warm water as a drink or eat it just like that. 

3. Eat pure honey.

4. Apple cider vinegar mixed it in warm water, you can add honey in it too. 

5. Preserve and rest your voice, avoid shouting. 

6. You can invest in a good brand of a humidifier. 

7. It is always an advantage to know your allergen so that you can watch out for early signs and you can also avoid what triggers your allergy. 

Also, one product brand that I discovered recently was this lozenges candy called Pei Pa Koa. 





Pei Pa Koa candy is made from natural herbs, Loquat, and honey extracts. It claims that it can relieve discomfort from coughs, colds, sore throat, hoarseness or loss of voice. Contains no artificial flavors and colors or preservatives. 
I bought this at a local drugstore and this pack contains, I guess 12 candies. I forgot to count it when I open the pack. This was sold at P40 ($0.80). 

I am almost done with the whole pack and I am not convinced about the taste and the effect of it. It tasted sweet like a typical hard candy, I was expecting a stronger taste of the herbs but unfortunately none. I guess it was too good to be true. 

Have you tried this candy lozenge before? What was your take on it? 

If you have any other tips or home remedies for itchy and sore throat, please do comment down below.

How to know your WhatsApp account has been hacked and tips to prevent it 2018 Guide

So what happens if your WhatsApp account is hacked. Although WhatsApp can be hacked to a limited extent, the reality when being hacked will be bad, and there's no need to inform one user that. Once hacked, the hacker can keep an eye on you like when you come online WhatsApp, your sleeping pattern, your online activity and much more.
Hackers can access your WhatsApp data by various means like via WhatsApp web or registering your number on another device. WhatsApp cannot work on two phones at the same time but hackers if register your number on another device, can easily get hold of all your chats including the personal ones.
Hackers can quickly scan your WhatsApp QR code and access your WhatsApp conversation from anywhere in the world. However, this requires hackers to have a physical access of your phone to access the QR code.
To know if your WhatsApp web is active on an unknown device, go to the three dots given at the top right corner of your WhatsApp window. Go to WhatsApp Web and check the list of all open sessions. This will let you see all the devices that are connected to your WhatsApp.
If you are seeing a message " This phone could not be verified", it means your WhatsApp has been accessed by an unknown device also.

Race and ethnicity don't affect how a woman sees and want their hair to be styled. The selection of hair products such as hair extensions, hair wigs, hair styling equipment is endless. Celebrities and people around the fashion industry rely on hair extensions to accentuate the fashionable look they want to achieve and showcase. Today'  hair extension becomes a great option for lots of women.


One option that women are considering to have is the Malaysian virgin hair compared to others because of the appearance, quality and the price for being affordable. It is becoming popular due to these reasons, and as long as your need for a hairstyle is being attained we always result to the popular one versus that typical brand or kind we were used too.

Malaysian tresses are as an important substitute of most likely typically the most popular weaves in addition to facing some front wigs for African-American women. In addition, Malaysian tresses are indeed highly soft in addition to smooth within the various textures. Besides, its original and fully natural color really resembles individuals of African-American women.

In density, these extensions are mentioned are almost the same in comparison to that of Indian Remy, however, it doesn't possess the initial and natural wave of Indian hair for its straight and thick in appearance, which is considered as an ideal when picking up hair extension in your favorite hair vendors online.

What is an automatic voltage regulator?



The automatic voltage regulator or AVR is an electronic device that helps regulate the voltage automatically. Its main function is to maintain a constant voltage and power to any appliances and electronic devices that are sensitive to electrical surges.




This is one example of automatic voltage regulator from Akari brand which we bought from Ace hardware.

We decided to purchase an AVR a few months ago for one sole reason, to save our appliances specifically the refrigerator from possible damage due to fluctuating voltage that was resulting to on and off power interruption at home. 

Unlike other appliances at home, a refrigerator works almost 24/7, although it has this built-in regulator that automatically shuts on and off to regulate the thermostat control, the main power should be controlled and regulated as well. Since we’ve been experiencing on and off power interruption because of the main circuit breaker we have at home that needs repair. I was alarmed and stressed out that time because we cannot afford not to have a working and functional fridge, can you imagine living without the necessity of preserving food, cold drinks and other food essentials that we keep inside the fridge? As a cook and a believer that cooking food at home is an act of saving, I cannot afford not to have a fridge.

We scouted for a few brands, from functionalities to prices we decided to get this Akari (AVR-SVH 500) automatic voltage regulator with servo motor, priced at P2,599.75 ($52).

It has power on and off button to set when needed for use, a delay selector button, a window meter of the output voltage, two- output plug for 110v and 220v (front), and three- 220v plugs (back).

From the purchase of the AVR unit, we were given one Akari junior study lamp in white color with a dog design for free! I was delighted to know the free item as we needed a new study lamp replacement for the daughter’s study table. I saved an amount of P700 ($14) by getting a free item from my original purchase. 






It has been three months already and the AVR unit is functioning well, we’ve been experiencing the sudden intermittent power and it prevents a sudden surge of electricity which is a power saving too.
