WeChat and Easy Taxi Treats You To A Free Ride With #Selfie!

Get to your destination in style for FREE – NO booking fee, NO metered fare!

Riding in the city just got even better with Easy Taxi’s new product cars! Last #OCT302014, we were given a chance to attend an event we don’t even know what is about. All we were given is a hashtag, and brand clues.

When we arrived at the event, all we see are four different cars… covered.

It turns out that Easy Taxi is having a collabiration with Smart, Sun, Belo, and WeChat Philippines with their product cars! These cars will bring you to your destination at no cost!

But, how do I avail of the FREE RIDE?

Simple, download the Easy Taxi app on App Store or Google Play (if you don’t have it yet), then book using the app. If there’s an available vacant product taxi near you, this cab with pick you up and bring you to your destination of choice ABSOLUTELY FREE! Each cars may require you to do something in return. One for example is WeChat, which will make you claim the free ride by simply posting your #selfie inside the WeChat Easy Taxi Cab and using the hashtag #WeChatTaxi on your Moments and Facebook post:

free-ride-easy-taxi-wechat

So far we haven’t seen these cars in action as of today, November 3. Hopefully we can get to ride one of them soon, especially WeChat! This promo will last until the end of the year so we’ll see if the green car (or pink or yellow or blue!) will head our way! Also, please take note that this promo is currently available to destination in Metro Manila only.

Oh, and by the way, we’ve been given clues that Easy Taxi will soon be integrated FULLY with WeChat! We’ve read yesterday that the China version of WeChat named Weixin, has already chalked up 21 million taxi rides in just over a month. So we’re definitely seeing that integration soon, and it has already started in Singapore so it’s just a short wait until we actually get to enjoy the same benefit! An article too said WeChat will integrate more third-party apps, including our favorite mobile food delivery service, Food Panda!

So download your Easy Taxi app now and experience the ride of a lifetime! Easy Taxi, your taxi one touch away!

Our #WeChatShareAScare Entry: Frog & Horse

Where do you usually wear a Halloween costume? John does it mostly on his work days before the 31st. But what about me working at home?

So we’ve decided to pull off a Halloween stunt on our own, right at the comfort of our home! We joined a contest from WeChat by simple being Halloween-spired and Share-A-Scare!

Share-A-Scare-Promo-Banner-664x369

To join this is pretty much simple:

  1. Take a photo of you in your Halloween costume
  2. Share it on your Moments page and have at least 5 friends like your post
  3. Take a screenshot of your Moments post and share it on your FB timeline, tagging your local WeChat page – @WeChat Malaysia (/Singapore/Philippines) and hashtagging #WeChatShareAScare

Now the big question is, what would be our concept and how do we make our entry stand out among the rest?

We have read the WeChat Blog and saw some sticker inspirations, including the Orange Lantern and the Voodoo Ruby. But there’s one thing we saw in the options that really squeezed out our creative juices:

frog-horseFrog and horse are a couple of crazy and amazing friends who escaped from the zoo and love to dance. They have lived a pretty awesome life eversince.

But you gotta make it spooky, right? So we tried to make a story out of it, like a world converting itself to some sort of Silent Hill at some point. This is where Frog transforms itself to a gruesome monster, hungry for meat, and took Horse as his helpless victim.

Sounds cool?

So we collected materials to execute the monster frog with an oil-based body paint, a modified monster prosthetic mask, the bloodbath setting, and some other cool props to put life to the story behind the gruesome “moment”.

And the shoot has started!

After roughly the entire day of shoot, there’s just this one photo that stood out among the rest. And after some polishing and integrating more effects that will surely put the perfect finishes to the sticker-put-to-life, here’s our final official entry for the WeChat’s Share-A-Scare photo contest:

2014-11-02 03.32.57

Frog and horse are a couple of crazy and amazing friends who escaped from the zoo and love to dance. They have lived a pretty awesome life eversince… until came Silent Hill last night where all hell broke loose.

“Horse? What horse? I don’t see him.”

“He would be sitting right next to me and just be sweet… but I need some meat.”

With the missing friend comes one thing Frog never leaves by his side… A FLOWER that Horse give him days back before the “Purge”.

It’s true. Real friendship never ends… #WeChatShareAScare

Mind And Body Challenge With Berghaus Adventure Games 2014

Prepare to conquer your adventure list, start with Berghaus Urban Adventure Games!

2014-10-29 13.43.14

Would you like to join a different kind of athletic challenge besides running? Get ready for a new dimension in adventure racing with the Berghaus Urban Adventure Games! We were given a chance to attend the launch last October 29 and after the event, me and John became super excited as we would like to start 2015 with a bang, by joining running events and other sports activities. And now we are given a chance to join the digitalized adventure racing such as this!

???????????????????????????????Orientation of how the games will work, prepare your Android phones!

Featuring the first app-based format, teams of 3 members each will receive their challenges on their mobile phones as they race to accumulate points before the clock runs out. This is not your ordinary kind of sport activity as you will be challenged both physically and mentally to race your team to the finish line! These challenges will push the teams to their limits as you will run through various obstacles, test strength at CrossFit stations, solve riddles, puzzles, and even run around the grounds for a mobile scavenger hunt. During the launch, we get to try out some of these challenges and it was intense! You need to figure out which among them will bring your team the highest scores, so you’ll have to brainstorm, be strategic as you are racing with time too!

Some of the challenges during the dry run: #Selfie taking, Word Find, Fold-A-Tent, Riddles, and more!

???????????????????????????????I ranked 1st at the moment! But not too long, I ended up being on 2nd with 164 points!

Categories:

  • Fun (Registration Fee: P2,400) – Challenges will be scored but not timed.
  • Competitive (Registration Fee: P2,700) – This category will have a limited time to complete as many challenges and accumulate as many points as possible.
  • Elite (Registration Fee: P3,000) – The toughest of the three, according to our interview with one of the game masters, this category might require the teams to run and transfer somewhere else, like Roxas Blvd., to be able to continue their game.

???????????????????????????????Cyburban, your key to conquering the Urban Adventure Games!

This race is organized by Cyburban, an innovator in app-based adventure racing, adding a new dimension of interactivity to the traditional adventure racing format.

Berghaus Urban Adventure Games will be held on November 15, 2014 at the Globe Circuit Event Grounds in Makati City. You may register at the following outlets:

  • Toby’s Sports Shangri-la Plaza
  • Toby’s Sports Glorietta 2
  • Toby’s Sports The Block
  • RUNNR Bonifacio High Street
  • Toby’s Sports SM Mall of Asia
