Founded in August of 2008 and based in San Francisco, California, Airbnb is a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodation around the world — online or from a mobile phone or tablet.
Basically Airbnb acts like Agoda, Expedia, AirAsia Go, etc. except it is meant for homestay instead of hotels, and it enables people to list or rent short-term lodging in residential properties. So instead of staying in a hotel, you will be staying at someone’s house! How cool is that! Airbnb is a good option when you are traveling to a place where the hotel rent is high.
BlogDash is a media database built with the purpose to actually help the media relations industry. Nowadays, because of the booming of social media, “media” is being created by everyone – you, me, and the people you know. Thus, brands might become overwhelmed in their attempt to get their message to the target audience
If you haven’t heard about ‘Pinterest’ …. you are missing all the fun!! It’s the IN thing nowadays!!
What is PINTEREST?
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.
People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favorite recipes.
Basically you use pinterest to ‘PIN’ your favourite images to your so called ‘pinboard’, and you can also browse through people’s images.
To know more about PINTEREST (and to start using it), visit their official website: www.pinterest.com
I work in a lighting industry … (if you really focus on my earlier posts, you will know which company I am referring to :P) and since i have a background in IT, people will tend to ask me to help out with lighting designs & simulation and sometimes just to edit or create flyers. That is why and how i manage to come across this very useful software (so that i can do my work!). It works like Photoshop, and the best part is that IT’S 100% FREE! What is it? It’s call “GIMP”!
Below are some of my ‘early editing work’ that I have done (I just follow some tutorials). On the left side are the original images & on the right side are the edited images 🙂
To use this image authoring tool is so easy … you can just search for ‘gimp tutorials’ on google or yahoo, etc. and there will be a lot of sites which will be listed. That is how I manage to learn using this awesome tool! 🙂
I ♥ RUNNING!! Sometimes i hope i can just run every single day but too bad i can’t! (time restriction .. & sometimes because i’m too lazy to run 😛 ). So what i usually do is, every week i will try my best to run every Sunday, & i’ve set my mind to run at least 7km every time i go running. Why i love & i go running? Here are the reasons!!
A good way to enjoy music + outdoor environment
Since i also love to eat, it’s a good way to burn calories
Eat more calories later on 😛
To stay fit & healthy
Enjoy my ‘alone’ time
Help me to keep on moving (not only when i run)
A way for me to get my ‘endorphin rush’
Running is my DRUG .. will feel so uneasy if i don’t go out & run!!
By the way, every time i go out to run, i will make sure i have my MP3 player on, a bottle of water on my right hand & my blackberry on my left hand! I need to have my phone because every time i run, i will use ‘Endomondo’ to keep track of my running! I’ve blog about the apps before … click on this link if you haven’t read about it! https://farahzulkifly.wordpress.com/2012/04/10/endomondo-fitness-apps/
