With the V7+ 24MP front-facing camera photos come out clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking. Likewise, the 16MP rear camera, with its 64MP UHD that can produce detailed quality photos, blurred shots are a thing of the past. Night shots using the camera’s professional mode make photos come out are perfectly clear.

Moreover, the V7+ offers a face beauty feature for Vivo calls, so anyone is always ready to take a video call anytime, any day. When in a dimly-lit environment, Selfie Softlight goes to work offering soft but flattering illumination.

Vivo V7+ does an awesome job with selfies. With the Bokeh mode, selfie photos come out with a tinge of creativity. Backgrounds are blurred to emphasize the main subject of the photo

Augmented visual experience with the all-screen display

Smartphone fans are raving about the V7+’s 5.99” all-screen display with its 84.4% screen to body ratio, providing a more exciting and enhanced game and visual experience. You can maximize the whole screen even more with the option to remove navigation buttons completely simply with the slide of a finger and enjoy a 12.5% viewing area.

Enjoy an action-packed game experience

The V7+ rocks the latest OS. Heavy game players can benefit from the V7+ as it packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon Octacore processor, making playing of heavy games enjoyable and smooth-running. The V7+ 4GB ROM allows user to multi-task, open multipole applications without the worry of lagging and with the special Game Mode feature, disturbing the current game play with app notifications is never a problem.

A price that is easy on the pocket and specs that hit the ceiling in terms of quality and performance, the Vivo V7+ is a surefire hit amongst gift-givers and gift-receivers.

Vivo in our Hearts

To celebrate the holiday in true Filipino Christmas spirit, Vivo Philippines releases a special holiday video depicting a touching story of a widow, her children, and a husband and father they lost in a war.

The story revolved around a grieving wife and mother who tends to her small children on a Christmas eve when a group of carolers offered a rendition of ‘Silent Night’ outside their home. Laden with gifts and noche buena food, the carolers were then welcomed inside the home of the aggrieved family only for the former’s emotions to be stirred by a solitary portrait of the father of the home—a soldier who perished fighting for peace.

The Vivo special Christmas video is an instant hit amongst the family-oriented Filipinos, garnering 781,000 views, 4,212 shares and almost 41,000 likes within six days after its release on Vivo Philippines’ official Facebook page. Because of its theme centered on family, Christmas, togetherness, and gratitude, Vivo’s special Christmas video hits home for many Filipinos. The comments section abounds with emotional sentiments with messages of gratitude for the soldiers who fought to re-establish peace in Marawi. Some of the comments even expressed gratitude to Vivo for “giving [the audience] an avenue to thank the ones who enabled them to celebrate Christmas in peace.” “very meaningful and heartwarming! a tribute to all our soldiers and father! hats off to Vivo management for making this short film.”

Vivo, by way of the special Christmas video, shares and celebrates what a truly meaningful Christmas for Filipinos. Family, togetherness, empathy, and the spirit of giving make a Filipino Christmas like no one else in the world.

Snowbing Trinoma

The Korean craze here in Philippines is getting way out of hand. I’m not really into the whole K-POP thing, definitely beauty innovations and slowly learning to embrace Korean food lately this year.

Bingsu, is one that I am really curious. I was told to go for the legit bingsu because its worth it. In the Philippines we have something similar or the counter part the HALO HALO.

Snowbing is a local franchise that caters to Asian cuisine. This post is dedicated to their dessert menu. Their BINGSU AND TOAST.

 

 

 

You may want to visit Snowbing Trinoma 4/F Garden Level near Starbucks. They also offer meals (pasta and pizza) but you have to head towards to SM North.

Let’s headover now to SNOWBING’s highlight dessert the BINGSU (“snowBING”). From P168-P198 you get a big serving of bingsu – A yummy bowl good for sharing. Rich in flavor and the what is the science behind their bingsu’s shaved iced – it doesn’t melt easily. You can opt for take out because like I said it doesn’t melt right away.

I personally like the SALTED CARAMEL (P168) – a perfectly blend of sweet &
salty & CHOCO BROWNIE (P188) – big chunks of brownies! The Tiramisu (P198) ran out during our visit but I feel it taste good and heard its one of their bestsellers.

SALTED CARAMEL

Their bestsellers are the CHEEZY MANGO – their mangoes are the sweetest! (P168), MATCHA GREEN TEA (P198) AND TIRAMISU (P198). You can choose from their 12 BINGSU – so hard to choose, all looks so delish.
