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, naïve 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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
