Last week I had the chance to try out my new camera at APAC Venture's Glitz & Glam Blogger's party; the official launch of WeChat and avast! 7 at Velvet Underground, Zouk Club KL in Malaysia.
Dun Dun Dunnn..
I had to briefly excuse myself from a shoot and drive all the way Subang to KL for this event. Thankfully I got there just in time for the speech.

Rebranded as WeChat on the 19th April 2012, it is the no.1 most free downloaded app in the world which supports English, Simplified/Traditional Chinese, Indonesian, Portuguese, Thai and Vietnamese on iOS and Android, Symbian and Windows.
I downloaded WeChat and it's pretty cool. You can do the basic functions for text messaging, voice messaging, broadcast (one-to-many) messaging, photo/video-sharing, location sharing and contact info exchange.
Your emoticons can be customised to whatever you want as well as the customisable background.
There are also pretty cool games that you can play like Rock-Paper-Scissor mini-games on your phone that you need to try out.
WeChat is loaded with futuristic features like "Moments" which is better than Instagram providing artistic filters, captioned and distributable photos you can easily share with your friends.
Many celebrities are using this app too!
There's a pretty cool "Look Around", "Shake" and "Drift Bottle" if you wanna have a sick time or find friends at a party.
As of March 2012, there are 100 million users of WeChat and recently they added another 40 million users to that number.
