Sharing Creativity Through Live Streaming


With the availability of internet, people have been live streaming or broadcasting live videos over the internet to reach audience across the globe. As long as you have access to the internet, anyone can live streaming using a smart phone or tablet, and a platform to broadcast on. People are born to be creative in nature, and live streaming gives the young people an opportunity to be creative in their own natural way. Some are born to be a presenter and they enjoy being seen by an audience.


These days, those interested can choose from the many apps for live streaming and download onto their smart phone or tablet. With an app for live streaming, you can broadcast live whatever you are doing to your audience from wherever you are. There is a rise in live streaming platforms such as YouNow, Live.ly, Facebook Live, Periscope, and etc., just to name a few.

Live streaming is uncensored, unedited, and unrehearsed. It can be used in a positive way, e.g. as a campaigning tool, create identity, or a great way to develop skills in communication, or to showcase your talent. It is also a way to help build up or boost one’s ego and confidence, especially with the “likes” and positive comments received from their audience.

Naturally, parents and adults are understandably worried about their children or charge going live on a video streaming app which can be hard to moderate and the content being misused or exposed inappropriately. There is the danger of their children revealing more personal information than intended and being exposed or coming in contact with strangers with evil motives.

Without proper adult monitoring, na├»ve youngsters may broadcast something overly personal and before they knew it, the content once released into the live streaming channels, there is nothing to stop it being recorded, shared and could be used to blackmail. Sometimes, receiving harsh negative comments could damage the youngster’s morale and may cause them to lose their self-esteem or confidence.

It is therefore important for parents and their children to have an open line of communication where they can talk openly concerning their internet habits, especially concerning their views on live streaming. Parents can discuss with their youngsters without being controlling or domineering on what is safe and how to keep themselves safe online and enjoy positive online experience and to avoid being negatively exploited.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
