Vivo ready to wow the world with an all-new screen design

August 25, 2018 0 Comments

Global smartphone brand Vivo has been known for its high-technology innovations that have wowed the world several times over. But it has also been a pioneer of various consumer-centric smartphone designs.  

Starting August 20, the fastest growing smartphone brand has teased tech-savvy followers with a series of mysterious videos posted on its social media pages. The latest was a video of the moon with its shape emphasized by a curved line, a hint of the look of the next flagship smartphone.  

“The galaxies coalesced. Prepare for something greater. #GoBeyond,” Vivo wrote in its latest post.

For its latest smartphone releases, Vivo has pushed the boundaries of the screens based on various studies and insights into what its consumers want. 

In 2017, Vivo released the V7+, which has a 5.99-inch AllScreen Display that offers a wider visual experience without compromising a comfortable grip. This gives those on the go a chance to enjoy a bigger screen for gaming, reading, or watching videos. 

Vivo followed up the V7+ with the release of the V9 in 2018. It was their first flagship smartphone for the year with the notch. The V9 features the new 19:9 FullView™ Display that has a massive 90% screen-to-body ratio that gives users a wider look into the digital world. The Vivo V9 may be as compact as the 5.5-inch phone, but it was able to attain a 6.3-inch screen. 

Halfway through the year, Vivo released the Vivo X21, its first X-series smartphone in the Philippines. It still has an iconic 19:9 FullView™ Display. But it has a bigger screen-to-body ratio of 90.3% to provide a more impactful visual experience for gamers and video hoarders.

But Vivo was able to get closer to its target when the Vivo NEX was released in some markets in June. The NEX introduces the Ultra FullView™ Display experience with a whopping 91.24% screen-to-body ratio. Vivo was able to achieve this by pioneering the 8-megapixel Elevating Front Camera that hides in the body when not in use. It also introduces the Screen SoundCasting Technology that replaces the traditional earpiece speaker entirely and cutting the bezel size.  

With these releases, Vivo has proven that the window to the digital world has no limits. What barriers will the brand break next? #

Homemade Birthday Cake: No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

August 09, 2018 0 Comments

If you ask me what's one of my many favorite desserts, definitely I will tell you first it is cheesecake. Whatever flavor of cheesecake, I will eat it. The first time I did my own recipe was when I turned 29 this year. Last March was my birth month and I decided to make my own cake. Not baked because we didn't have an oven, it was a no-bake cheesecake. I just searched online and watched youtube videos for ingredients and how to do the no-bake cheesecake. Just be mindful of the ingredients to be used, there are expensive and affordable which they still have the same taste. So if you want to lessen the expenses, go for much cheaper but still have the same result after all. 

I didn't have a mixer on the first time, so it wasn't thickened the creams. But I have the cake mold that we bought at Lazada when they have a sale. In my second time, I didn't have a mold but I have the mixer that my husband brought from Dubai. I used the Pyrex bowl for my cake turned into ice cream oreo cheesecake when it was frozen.

Actually, my husband requested the cake. He's been excited to use the mixer he bought for me. I want to learn more about baking and mixer is one of the many kitchen tools that I need the most. He bought the mixer in an online shopping site based in UAE - It only cost 1AED! WOW, right? 

For my first time, here are the ingredients I used:
☑️Oreo Biscuits 
☑️Magnolia Cream Cheese
☑️Alaska Condensada 
☑️Anchor Whipping Cream
☑️Mr. Gulaman Jelly Powder (white, no flavor)
☑️Milky Marie Biscuits

For the second time, here are the Ingredients I used:

☑️Emborg Cream Cheese
☑️Nestle Cream (Thickens)
☑️Alaska Cremdensada (thick cream)
☑️ Don frank Gulaman powder (white)
☑️Oreo biscuits

Here's my own version of No Bake Oreo Cheesecake:

1. Melt the butter in a pan or in a microwave oven. Mix it with crushed biscuits like Marie or Graham then add some sugar. Pressed into cake pan or any bowl like Pyrex. I used the bottom of a glass to press the crumbs. Set aside and chill in the refrigerator.

2. Beat cream cheese. It's up to you if you want more 2-3 packs of cream cheese. Add some sugar and vanilla. Set aside.

3. Nestle cream is much cheaper than Anchor whipping cream, just beat it to make it thick. But you can buy one thick cream, already available in the supermarket. 

4. Mix the thick cream and cream cheese. Beat together then add some oreo. Optional.

5. Boil the jelly and add to the mixture. Use water or milk to boil. Mix well.

6. Ready to put the mixture to the chilled crumbs then top some oreo for decoration. My kids asked for sprinkles to decor my first ever cheesecake. It turned out so sweet. So I suggest reducing the amount of sugar or condensed milk if you will add sprinkles.
Chill 7-8 hours.

Enjoy your dessert.

It was my birthday, so I feel so good making my cake. I have to feel good about everything. I may not be born with a silver spoon but God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well. Do what makes you happy.
