Day at Cheung Chau

My favorite part of this trip got to be the day trip to Cheung Chau! I have seen so much about Cheung Chau on TVB dramas and just had to go there to see it for myself. Travelling to Hong Kong has always been shopping and eating at the bustling city. Time to take things slower and visit Cheung Chau. a small island 10 km southwest of Hong Kong Island.

We headed to the jetty to take the boat to Cheung Chau.

Lost SG

IMG_0663

So Sheila, I and the boys headed to Lost SG last weekend right after I was back from cruise! We were supposed to head there much earlier but unfortunately, our timings couldn’t match. So we were very happy that we were finally there!!

IMG_0660

Sheila and I taking a shot before we started! Real escape games were first introduced to Hong Kong back in 2006,

IMG_0673

Before we started Castiglione, we were played a short clip on what the game is about and briefly what to expect. We started with Castiglione! It was our first time playing a real escape games, so we were lost for awhile and needed some help from the staff. We were given an hour but we exceeded and still needed help. Anytime we needed help, there was an intercom or exit door! We felt lousy! :P

IMG_0688
We had to find out how to unlock this box!

I can't share much photos or the mysteries with you cause I will be spoiling the fun! But here are just a few shots which the kind people allowed us to take! One thing I have to share!! Initially ,we had thought there were people watching us and activating all the doors and locks but it was not! Everything at Lost SG is automated! The doors actually open by themselves after you solve the mysteries!! Omggggg I felt like I was in a action movie! 


After Castiglione, we couldn't call it a day. We had to give another game a go cause we did so badly at the first! We were recommended to Lsometrick where it was filled with rubric cubes and our aim was to solve some super difficult tasks to find the missing professor! Some of the tasks and very little clues and based on a sentence, we had to solve the puzzle!

IMG_0702

If you love puzzles, you would love Isometrick! I have to bring my sister, Zonia, there! She loves and is super good at such games!! 

IMG_0711

We ended the evening with these few shots. The cards we held very much said how we felt. Hahaha! Anyway, we really had a lot of fun solving the mysteries. I would highly recommend Lost SG for team bonding activities because at Lost SG you can only complete the games as a team!

IMG_0710

Besides Castiglione and Lsometrick, there are 3 other games available!

IMG_0647

They are Aokigahara, Exodus and Alcatraz! Definitely going back with more friends to play the other 3 games the next time round!! (:
There are different pricings for the off-peak and peak hours at Lost SG! At off-peaks, you can play at just S$20.90 while at peak, it’s S$26.90! To make sure everyone gets to play at peak hours which is Monday to Friday, 6pm-11pm and whole of Saturday and Sunday, players may mix with other groups but there’s also an option to pay for 7 pax to book the whole game!

The kind people at Lost SG has offered to giveaway a trip to Lost SG to 1 lucky follower and 5 friends!! All you need to do is like this photo, follow @lostsg, comment on this picture on my instagram post, tag the 5 friends you want to bring along to Lost SG and why!!

How to distinguish real and fake Instagram accounts.

Tgif!! Those active on Instagram would have seen a message that there will be changes to your followers.

IMG_4444

Instagram may end up deleting between 2-10 million users as they remove spam accounts polluting its user base.

I have been reading up on this topic and it's really sad and unfortunate that people pay to boost their follower count. A celebrity or blogger's brand value is measured by their social media imprint and they in turn use that to leverage endorsements.

According to Dailygragh, it expects more than a few bloggers, celebrities and business owners who are “falsely advertising” will be left red-faced in the coming weeks. “If you are buying followers, it is a stupid way of doing business,”.

Ibtimes article mentioned that Instagram users of all kinds buy fake followers, including celebrities, politicians, brands, businesses, photographers and journalists. “People who are household names are going to see their follower counts drop by a lot,”. “It’s going to be chaos.”.

There are quite a number of articles where writers share how to distinguish real and fake instagram account. One of them is Gomomentum Marketing.

1. A SUDDEN SPIKE IN FOLLOWERS


2. LOW INTERACTION WITH FOLLOWERS

Gomomentum Marketing seen Instagram accounts with over forty thousand followers, but each of their posts is only getting around 100 likes. The low engagement percentage shows that their influence on their followers is super low, and they most likely paid for the majority of their followers.

I have also seen accounts with over four thousands followers, but the likes for their photos are 20-40 likes.

Based on my own researches,

3. STRING OF ACCOUNTS WITH SAME NUMBER OF POSTS

fake

I find this alarming. How can a string of consecutive followers have 5 posts? Unless they are bought from the same fake account seller.

4. SUDDEN SURGE OF FOREIGN/WEIRD USER ACCOUNT NAMES

fake2
fake3
fake4

Advertisers, please review your engagements with caution. Every engagement made, you would want no less of a true helpful endorsement.

Those who purchases fake accounts, please don’t be tempted to buy followers. They bring you no value and you will be caught out. You may receive the engagements you wanted but once you deliver, the results will tell.
