My Top 3 Ideal Lazada Gadgets

In the past few weeks, there are typhoons and floods that caused brownouts in many area, damage to infrastructure, agriculture and to our homes. I always have my laptop and phone in fully charged when there is electricity supply rotation. There are some cases that you will get stranded in your office or anywhere because of heavy rains and floods that’s why I’m planning to buy something useful this rainy season.

z1 compact colors


The first thing that came up to my mind is a waterproof smartphone like Xperia Z1 compact, a high-end smartphone with very nice camera features and underwater capabilities. This is a smaller version of Xperia Z1 with same features and specs but more fit to the hand and easy to hold. If you have plan to upgrade your phone, try to ckeck the features of Xperia wateproof phones that will make you less worry of water splash and spill.

7000mah powerbank

I started to use powerbank last year and I’m planing to  upgrade to a new one with 9,000 to 13,000mAh. During brownout, some of us plug our mobile or tablet to laptop to charge it but that will drain your laptop battery. If you have a powerbank that you can carry anytime and anywhere, you have no worries of draining your battery in calls, messaging, surfing and gaming. Powerbank can be found anywhere in malls, Divisoria, Quiapo and also in online stores like Lazada PH, its available from 500mAh to 25,000mAh.

smartwatch 2


This Smartwatch from Sony can be used in any weather and be immersed in water. The battery will last up to 7days for minimum usage even if the watch display in On. There are multiple apps that can be install in this little device like health and fitness apps, social networking and imaging. What I really like about this watch is, you can read message directly to your watch without the hassle of pulling out your phone from your pocket or bag when you are on a bus or train. It can also serve as a remote for music handling.


Where were you at 28?

While many of us can only dream of changing the world, Inanc Balci is already doing it. At 26, he co-founded South East Asia’s online retail tiger Lazada and now, at age 28, he sits as the Chief Executive Officer for Lazada Philippines.


On Being a young CEO

Balci, a Turkish raised in London, attended Purdue University in the U.S. with a double-degree in Industrial Engineering and Economics. Afterwhich, he worked on mergers and acquisitions for an investment bank in London. While working for the investment bank, Balci saw the eminent potential in e-commerce which led him to join Rocket Internet and eventually co-found Lazada in Southeast Asia.

In the Philippines, Balci heads a pool of more than 300 employees, all of which he works very closely with. With an unabashed outlook, agile wit, and a laser-sharp eye for details, Balci perfectly fits the bill to lead a rapidly-growing online company.

Online Shopping in the Philippines

In a country where shopping malls are practically part of the fabric of the society, online shopping is something quite a number of Filipinos are unaccustomed to – there comes the perennial trust issue on using credit cards, the surprise surcharges, and unfortunately, the products not arriving at all. The malls in the Philippines, on the otherhand, have creatively articulated themselves to be not just shopping destinations but also as a means of recreation (i.e. be it the cinemas, the gaming zones, the restaurants, or as simple as the airconditioning they offer as a break from the raging tropical weather outdoors) – all of these were the issues that Balci had to dispel – and dispel he and his co-founders did. Lazada has made shopping quick, effortless, and risk-free to South East Asia and in the Philippines, this is the same principle that Balci is harping on to the Filipinos. How is this so?

First, Lazada accommodates all those shoppers without credit cards via its cash-on-delivery payment mode. This is essential given that not everyone has a credit card or is keen on sharing their credit card details to someone – or anyone for that matter. This makes online shopping risk-free for everyone. Being an archipelago of 7,100 islands, accessibility is always an issue – a significant portion of consumers doesn’t have time or access to visit the malls but with a minimum of PhP 1,000 purchase, Lazada offers free nationwide delivery, to customers anywhere in the Philippines, just log-in, shop, and the products will be delivered at the customer’s doorstep. Lastly, Lazada offers the flexibility of having the customers return the products within 30 days for free – provided that the products are in mint condition.

In a span of two years of being in the Philippines, Balci has steered Lazada to further heights and now with more than 40,000 SKUs, reaching 90% of the online population of the Philippines, and ranking as the 4th top Facebook brand in the country with a direct audience close to 2 Million. What the dot-com bubble holds for Lazada is still yet to be revealed, but one thing is for certain, Inanc Balci, the 28 year-old co-founder and CEO, is definitely changing the way Filipinos buy.

Social Media Gaming Apps of 2014 for Android

Mobile phones have changed dramatically over the past fives years and users claim that one of the main advantages of ownership is the ability to contact friends and family. Now that we have smartphones that can access social media and networking site, we considered its an essential for working people in office and business and teenagers for recreational use such as picture or video editing and gaming. Gaming plays a big role this modern days especially MMO (massively multiplayer online) games that really entertain and cause some addiction.

For working people like me, I usually play games in my smartphone, like mini games that you can play during your free or waiting time. I also suggested to my friends to downloads games that can be connect to social networking site like Facebook.

The first social gaming app that I’ve got is Candy Crush, this year I found some interesting multiplayer role-playing games social gaming apps  for your Android phones that will give you some time of pleasure and fun, time to get away from the world and problems you face. Haha, I’m just exaggerating!


Hello Hero 3 stars Hero

Hello Hero has a traditional turn-based battle system and  fast-paced social role playing game. It features hundreds of playable heroes and diverse environment in stunning 3D graphics. The game is free to download but some game items can be purchased using real money.

You can also invite your Facebook friends to be your neighbors and exchange secret recipes with them. Updates for this game release weekly with new dishes, decorations and themes so the game continually gets even better. Restaurant Story is free to play but it can only be play online.


Papa Pear Saga game for android


Papa Pear Saga is made by King, developer of the popular Candy Crush Saga especially here from where I am. The game is easy and fun to play but it has challenging levels that needs to master. There are 100 levels filled with fruity pegs, hazelnuts and crazy chillies, and leaderboards for you and your friends.

There are other social games that was previously released and still popular this year like Parallel Kingdom, Oh my Hero and Candy Crush Saga. You may also like games which you can play and win at the same time in casino game. Some of it offer stunning graphics and interactive entertainment that take social casino games to the next level.

I remember Tetris was became popular in 2012 as Facebook social game but it is now playable in Android with new features and can still be connect with your friends in Facebook. Farmville 2 is now available to play on your mobile phone and it has lots of improvements in graphics and gameplay that you will really love particularly for those who played the first Farmville game. Electronic Arts release the casual life simulation video game series “The Sims” for Android with so many features. And I know, many of you know the game mechanics since this is a multi-platform game and one of the most successful video games series of all time that was first introduced in 2011.

It is not necessary to spend too much time playing these portable games as it will not good for our health and eyes.  We play these games to relax, build social bonds, encourage imagination, creativity and exploration.



Casino games are fun and winning is a plus

Gambling is considered by many a bad thing, a “sin”, a “crime”, like a drug – addictive and dangerous. It’s true, some people have problems with gambling – they exaggerate, they don’t know when to stop, and in time they ruin their life, their family and maybe even their community. It’s not correct to blame only gambling, though – the same people would have become addicted to drugs or alcohol if the circumstances were different.

I, for one, consider gambling – especially online gambling – a fun way for possibly making some money online. There are some things to consider, though, before starting an ‘online gambler’ career – choosing the right casino, setting strict limits to the amount one can afford to lose (because, of course, this is a possibility when gambling online) and not letting it overtake one’s life.

I play for low stakes. I have set a low limit for myself – a few bucks every week, an amount I can easily afford to lose – and always stop when I reach that limit, no matter how long a winning streak I have to interrupt. Sometimes I don’t even log on to the online casino I use – luckily it offers the possibility to play free, in ‘fun’ or ‘demo’ mode.

I usually play at the Euro Palace casino, as not many others have the same promotions and the same amount of free games at one place. The Euro Palace new-player-welcome-bonus casino’s offer is attractive (although it has some quite harsh wagering requirements that are a bit harder to fulfill) – deposit matches on the first two deposits made by the player, up to $/£/€500 (depending on the currency you use, I use €), weekly and monthly promotions, and the chance to win the big prize: a 7-day Caribbean cruise for two, or a share of their €1 million prize pool.

OK, I know, my chances to win this big are slim – I don’t play by far enough for it – but I like to dream big, like many others. Sometimes I start playing my favorite slots (usually the Battlestar Galactica, as it has some very interesting game modes) thinking of the days I will spend on board the Oasis of the Seas, but other times I just load the game and spin for fun.

I am a fan of slot machines. I play them often just for fun, or with stakes of a few cents – having a real money stake makes the game even more exciting and fun. I have my favorite slots – I particularly enjoy the above mentioned Battlestar Galactica, the Marvel slots made by Microgaming (there are quite a few), the ones based on Christopher Nolan’s new Batman movies, and the ThunderStruck II – a fine game based on the Norse mythology.

I don’t consider playing these games a way to make money online. If I win, it’s a plus above the fun and excitement of the game itself.
