Seoul Our Movie - Third Mission

Hey guys,
I upload this video to participate in Seoul Our Movie and to accomplish the third mission as Global Seoul Mate.
This video was taken in Seoul when I visited Seoul. This video is about the ceremony of changing the Royal Guards in Gyeongbokgung Palace, that I made them short from around 10 mins to 3 mins. I saw the uniformity and beauty from this ceremony (you can see from the uniform that they used), also to represent the heart of Seoul.
Theme: Made in Seoul
Link of the Video:
Royal Guards in Seoul
Information about Gyeongbok Palace:
Gyeongbokgung was the first royal palace built by the Joseon Dynasty, three years after the Joseon Dynasty was founded in 1395. It was built by King Taejo, the first king and the founder of the Joseon Dynasty at the heart of newly appointed capital of Seoul and represented the sovereignty of the Joseon Dynasty.Cheers,Faramitha

Tips to Save Battery When Using BBM for Android in Samsung

Hello guys,
Well.. First I want to share about my experience to use a Samsung Galaxy Note 2. At first, the battery was OK with all applications and games before I installed the BBM for Android. Usually I will just charge 1- 2x a day depends on the usage for the apps and games.
After the BBM for Android launched, I installed it and my battery was drained 200% faster than usual. Plus when I charge it, it will just drain and drain.
I thought that the problem is about the battery or the phone charger. After I looked for the condition, the cause is from the application "BBM for Android"

Therefore, I want to give you tips to save your battery that I already tried and it works till can follow my instructions if you want, no force... ;) 
1. Hide the updates from all your contacts. (The updates from your friends will absorb a lot of battery because it will keep updating and of course, it will absorb your kuota for internet plan)

Hongkong Macau Trip in May 2013 - Short Itinerary

Hello Guys,

I won't give any long story, but I will give you list my itinerary to Hongkong and Macau about 4 days 3 nights. If you want any further information about the itinerary , you can ask me. ^^

Day 1 (Kowloon)

- Early flight from Singapore to Hong Kong.
(For anyone of you if you go from Jakarta to Hongkong, then you will have several hours for transit time. If you buy tigerconnect, you are able to do the early check-in at transfer lounge E.)

- By the time I reached to Hongkong, I bought the Octopus Card (same function as Ez-link, and you can buy souvenir/ pay bills for food in some restaurants using Octopus Card) at airport. Then, I went to the hostel nearby Nathan Road by taking A21 bus. Actually if you want the cheaper accomodation, you can search it around Mongkok area, but you will have to spend more budget on your transportation. I chose City Econo Guest House, because you don't have to book it before, like I did (unless for the high season period).

- After check-in, I…


I Like Moonlight Rainbow Fountain in Banpo Bridge because it shows us the beautiful rainbow colour at night. We can enjoy the scenery of Seoul city at night as the background together with Banpo Bridge.
First Mission for Global Seoul-Mate in 2013 By: Xiaofen


The Banpo Bridge (반포대교) is a major bridge in downtown Seoul over the Han River, South Korea, connecting the Seocho and Yongsan districts. The Banpo Bridge is on top of Jamsu Bridge, forming a "double deck" bridge. During periods of high rainfall, the Jamsu Bridge is designed to submerge as the water level of the river rises, as the lower deck lies close to the waterline. This deck incorporates pedestrian and bicycle paths that provide easy access to the Banpo Hangang Park from the north side of the river. Banpo Bridge is a girder bridge and was completed in 1982.

The Moonlight Rainbow Fountain (달빛무지개 분수) is the world's longest bridge fountain that set a Guinness World Record with nearly 10,000 LED nozzles tha…
