Kumusta? It’s been very busy for me for the first two months of 2015. I’m not complaining though, it’s just that sometimes the tricky balancing act between having to keep work equally productive and enjoyable without affecting or neglecting personal life or family, can get too overwhelming. And I guess I’m not the only one getting...

The bigger iPhones are here!

Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 11.23.18 AM

It’s become an annual gadgetry watchdog of sorts, even for Instagram’ers who are on the lookout to upgrade and improve their phoneography.
