New Society with its New Technologies #FeatureFriday

One of the best things about being a content writer, for me at least, is I get to learn new things and acquire more knowledge. I love doing research. I love finding out facts. I love getting and giving trivia.

So one of my tasks at work that I’m enjoying right now is I get to write stuff again (being a content writer isn’t all about actually writing stuff, just so you know). I am kind of OC, therefore, you can bet I usually try as much as I can to find out every useful information. Sometimes, it sucks that I can’t include some information as they are not vital to the specific topics. But I value what I learn so I take notes.

Anyway, here is one of my newer articles that I really liked writing. I got to talk about technology and new stuff in general. It’s not at all that techie that any non-techie reader won’t have a hard time understanding it.

So, for today’s #FeatureFriday I am featuring NEW TECHNOLOGIES.

New Technologies Drive Society Forward



I am all about sharing what people will hopefully appreciate. Did you like this one? Let me know in the comments! 🙂

The BRF #FeatureFriday

Funny how one thing often leads to another. I started with going through my Blogspot then happened on an old post that I haven’t made live yet (again). It was about Madeline Mann who was, like me, born really tiny, and is now in her late 20s. She was considered the world’s tiniest baby at the time she was born.

Well, it turns out there are more Madeline Manns out there. I kept trying to find updated news on the one I needed. Then my search led me to YouTube to a different Madeline Mann who’s in her early 20s, so not the one I was looking for. This girl is a musician and was instrumental in introducing me to “The BRF”. (And I still didn’t find The Madeline!)


On to our #FeatureFriday…

The BRF: B**chy Resting Face!!!

This is actress-director Emily Towers showing you the BRF

Apparently, the original video about this created by writer-actress Taylor Orci went viral in 2013 (I was busy being depressed that time so I never knew) and self-confessed BRF-d Musician Madeline thought of writing a song about it. She mistakenly calls it the ‘Resting B**ch Face’, but she can easily correct that. People actually debate on the right term, but if you really think hard about the context, BRF sounds more appropriate. You’re resting but you don’t look like it ’cause you look b**chy at the moment. RBF means more like you’re just giving your b**chy face a rest, ergo, you must look more approachable rather than the opposite.

I had never really thought about BRF, but on occasion, I did, I just didn’t have name for it. I think I have it at times when I am really engrossed with something or in deep thought. So yes, I ‘ve had my occasional “Are you okay?”, “What is wrong?”and “Why are you upset?” Q&A moments.

What is “BRF”?

To explain…

If that’s not enough explanation, let these videos explain…CHEERS!!! (Yes, I am happy. Just concentrating on what I’m typing…Give me a break!)

This is the video that went viral. :

LOL!!!! After watching that, I have decided to be kinder to people who just might be unfortunate enough to have BRFs.

The origin of the BRF video:

Here’s an interesting post about it:

Finally, the song…

How about you, do you suffer from BRF? Aaaaawww…hugs…!!!

Lani’s Universe #FeatureFriday

It’s #FeatureFriday, folks! I was going to do this two weeks ago, buuut an idea popped into my head. Well, somebody sort of gave me an idea. I decided giving a voice recording post a go. UNFORTUNATELY, my resources fell short of making that a reality for now.

Now! Just to explain, for #FeatureFriday that’s supposed to come out every two weeks, I will be featuring people, places and things. Primarily, I aim to introduce blogs and/or bloggers I like and sites I enjoy. This is my way of thanking them for adding joy into my life. 🙂

So first up, we’ve got…


Lani V. Cox is an American expat with Thai and Chinese roots. Her whole story as to how she became American, she has already shared in her blog. It’s an interesting story, I promise. Read the About page. Whenever you visit a blog, always read the About page to get to know the blogger more and…well, because I said so! No buts!

lani-v-coxI’ve been blog friends with Lani V. Cox since 2014, I think (I did some checking). Sometimes, we kind of lose touch with each other, not that we’re personal friends as we just met here in the blogosphere. She becomes busy, I become busy, or both of us become busy. That’s why we are unable to blog at times or to actually follow blogs we have committed to follow.  Such is the life of a blogger.

Lani has been to different places, often for work. So she’s had a taste of various cultures and these, she unselfishly shares to her readers. Her blog’s about teaching (her profession), writing and traveling.

Sometimes, she waxes nostalgic, but usually, she shares how life is where she’s currently at, the people she meets at times, the places she goes to, her job, her living conditions, anecdotes here and there. As I love to learn about other cultures, she certainly gives me lessons by bits and pieces. It also makes me snicker or smile whenever she mentions stuff in Southeast Asia that I, as a Southeast Asian, can relate to, good or bad–it’s my cue for a good, little online tete-a-tete. What I love most about her is her free spirit and sense of humor, plus the fact that she gave me my first-ever blog award, he he!

I think shethe-missing-teacher‘s one of those people that others almost-immediately warms up to. She’s smart, too, which keeps me going back to her blog. I like her voice very much–listen to her audio-recording of posts (do you now have an inkling of who made me think of audio-recording mine?).

Her writing can be quite engaging and–oh, speaking of writing!–she’s written a book!!! (nice segue, eh? *wink*). It’s called the missing teacher, but don’t ask me why the title’s in small caps as I haven’t asked her yet. In her own words,

the missing teacher explores the personality of education, looks into one of the most controversial education systems, and is a story about the education of self.

Ooh, makes you want to get a hold of it, yah? Do get a hold of it!

So, guys, get with it and visit Lani at her blog Life, the Universe and Lani. I wouldn’t give her this award if she’s not worth it. Oops, yeah, I forgot to mention that. Featured bloggers automatically get the Blogger Recognition Award (click on the image below to know more).

Hey, Lani! This is yours! Feel free to do what you want with this wonderful award 🙂
