TJxKZ Concert in CdO!

Wow! As in, I was in awe during the concert of TJ Monterde (proud Kagay-anon) and KZ Tandingan  (proud Davaoena) last Saturday, February 17, 2018. The Atrium was all jammed-packed with their supporters from Luzon to Mindanao.

The Kagay-anons were all excited to hear from KZ's "Rolling In The Deep" version which she bagged as the #1 Singer 2018 in China last February 9, 2018. And so true, we were able to hear it from her singing live...

 

Indeed, she has the powerful voice that everyone would love to appreciate...

The concert was all worth the price since the people did enjoy the night and had so much fun. TJ's charm draws the crowd and KZ's naturally born entertainer (sense of humor) makes the night more lively! No boring moments with the lovely couple.






Another hit song sung by KZ..."Two Less Lonely People" from the movie Kita-Kita...



Thanks VIVO Philippines for bringing them here and letting us here the powerful voice of #TJxKZ!

Vivo celebrates Chinese New Year with CNY Photo Contest

To celebrate the Chinese New Year this 2018, Vivo has launched a special photo contest with well-known lifestyle bloggers for a first taste.

Held February 3 and 4 at Binondo, Manila, Vivo invited 18 lifestyle bloggers for an eventful photo walk around the oldest China town in the world.

Bloggers were asked to capture photos that embody the Chinese culture like cuisine, the ambience, the traditional lucky ornaments, or Binondo’s old town charm.  

Bloggers enjoyed taking photos with their Vivo smart phones features: the 24MP front camera for perfect CNY celebration selfies complemented by the camera’s HDR mode for stunning images with dramatic shadowing and highlights and the portrait bokeh for added aesthetics.

The professional mode, which mimics the manual mode of DSLR cameras, allows users to adjust the exposure, white balance, ISO, and focus mode creating creative photos.

Vivo’s signature Face Beauty spec ensures that anyone’s selfie is flawless with natural face enhancements. The Ultra HD mode takes hi-resolution photos at 9216 x 6192 (64MP), allowing shots with crystal clear details.

Not the least, bloggers were able to come together for a good group shot with the Groufie technology which boasts of a panorama-panning effect for big group shots without leaving anyone out.

The two-day Binondo photo walk with the bloggers was a special promotional event to get the bloggers’ followers to join Vivo’s Chinese New Year (CNY) Photo Contest thru which participants shares their best Chinese New Year-inspired photos and upload them in their Instagram account for a chance to win a brand-new Vivo V7+.

The bloggers’ photo walk for Vivo’s CNY Photo Contest was a resounding success as over 200 entries have been uploaded on Instagram by February 14.

The four best creative photos were chosen by the participating lifestyle bloggers with one winner announced during the Chinese New Year celebrations last February 16 at the Lucky Chinatown Mall. During the event, Vivo showcased the Chinese New Year-inspired photos in a special photowall. Vivo’s official mascot Little V entertained the crowd with a dance rendition of the hit song 24k. Later, Vivo awarded the Chinese New Year Photo Contest winner Angela Palacio for her photo of her Vivo V5 capturing an illuminated stretch of red Chinese lanterns.
