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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
