Thing 23: Reflection

Oh my! Finally here we are at the end of the 23 Things! I named this blog BlogXperiment because I wanted to try out anything I haven’t had a chance to do so in the past. Turns out not everything in 23 Things I like very much, but at least I tried. Overall, I’d say it’s been…

Thing 22: Fun and Play

Since my phone’s storage reached the limit and I don’t have either Vine, Dubsmash, or Snapchat, I used the feature on Instastory, which is similar to the one on Snapchat, to play around a bit. Ta-da! It was funny to play with but I don’t really see the point of doing so on a daily…

Thing 21: Online Games & Learning

Normally I don’t get motion sickness in the real life,…

Thing 17: Geolocation Tools

Can’t live without a geolocation app on my phone these days, to be honest, and Google Maps is one of my best guide buddies. It is super useful for navigating to a new place. Although I don’t like to share my geolocation with apps in general, Google Maps is surprisingly helpful for retracing my steps and labelling…
