Top 5 WeChat Features You Don’t Know About

With the growth of applications on mobile technology, people are often mistaken that all of them are just the same especially here in the Philippines. Video Calls; Stickers; Free SMS; and whatnot. Well, you got it wrong. As one of the leading mobile social communication app, there are many features of WeChat that many might not know. 

Here are my Top 5 WeChat features that I am pretty sure you would also like.

Strangers No More

By using “People Nearby”, you will get a chance to meet your next BFF or even your boyfriend to be. It has Tinder like features where it allows you to talk to people who are near your area. Who knows? Your prince charming might be a 100m away from you! Make advantage in using this feature and socialize with others.

Fun Stickers

All the other chat apps use stickers that are static. With WeChat, they’re moving! Not just that, you can upload your own GIF, upload it on WeChat and have your own set of stickers. You can even make yourself a sticker of your own face and turn them into moving stickers. How cool is that!?

Be a Spy

With WeChat “Join Private Group” function, you can act like James Bond and tell your friend to just join the chat using your 4 digit password before they can get hold of your top secret. Without this password, you can’t join this private Group and they won’t know what the juicy secret they’ve wanted to hear is.

Web Counterpart

Just log in to, scan the QR code and you can now use the WeChat app in the comfort of your desktop. What’s more? You can even attach big files such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. (Disclaimer: I painted them yellow for their privacy)

Free Stuff

Last month, they launched their free load promo where WeChat was giving away Php15 load to random WeChat PH users. This October, they gave away a total of 1,500 Cinema tickets worth Php200 each.  Ha! Talk about too many freebies! Not to mention, the recent giveaway is iPhone 6!

So, if you are a WeChat user yourself, I bet you should learn also about these and maximize the use of your WeChat application.

2 Main Benefits When Dressing On Style In School

It is a requirement in all schools that each student should wear their uniform properly; and hence I have too for the sake of it. But wearing a uniform simply holds one's creativity on dressing fashionably in going to school especially for college students. Only if your school requires a uniform for all students, but for most state universities and other institutions, they are lucky to have a free uniform the whole school year round. Nevertheless, for schools with uniform, they have a 1 free uniform school day every Wednesday. 

Since I have my own job while taking my field of expertise, I was granted to receive a privilege card on which I can go to school anytime even without wearing our school prescribe uniform. This breaks my horizon to flaunt my personality on the way I dress.

If you're a student, of course, in few years’ time you will not be what you are now, you are becoming – a young professional. And there’s more to style than just having few shirts, polo, jeans and a watch. It’s about time to transform you into a contemporary, smart, well put together, man.

So, here are the two main factors to benefit when you go to school well-dressed and on style.

Respect – A one good reason why you have to dress properly like a real man; not a boy. So you have to reassess yourself and your closet. This I am very certain true. I am wearing a sharp leather shoes, button shirt and a good fit jeans; my typical school style. It shows and draws an impression that I am doing my thing seriously which in turn helps me gain respect from my peers and most importantly from my professors. The latter would be making me stand out in class.

Confidence – For me, college is a serious business and I am matching that belief by dressing properly. With that, I am able to easily do school chores and am more ready to tackle the day’s tasks. I am more composed and alert. If you think it’s impossible, then, you better try it yourself and see that when dressing properly in school, you will look smart and sharp oozing with confidence and good vibes.

This I am lucky, I enjoy going to school that apart from gaining knowledge, I dressed to kill. Figuratively. And literally, men college students are some of the worst dressed people compared to female college students who are very careful on the way they look. You are no longer a student after college, so as early as now, you better change your mentality and go dress properly.

This post will just serves as guidance on what college students can benefit when dressing properly, and the aforementioned are just what can boost you; and for you to make at least a small change in your wardrobe that will lead to a big bounce on improving ones physical and personal presentation.

For sure, there will be a little by little effect; and in no time without even noticing, you will just come to realize that you have elevated your personal style.
