LIVING THE #SMARTLIFE

One of the highlights, if not the ultimate highlight, of my blogging career is being signed up as one of Smart's digital ambassadors. This is also a perfect case of things coming full circle given that my first infomercial back when I was still pursuing a modeling career was for Smart Padala.

All those who know me, personally and online, expect me to push for all Smart-related promotions and activities because that's part of my responsibilities as a Smart family member. That's what I signed up for. But more than the people's expectations, I'm the type of person who will push for something I personally believe in. I believe in living the #SmartLife.

And this is how I'm enjoying it!

I don't like long travels. I also don't like getting stuck in traffic (who does?). Aside from easily getting bored, I don't like the idea of not being productive always. If I can get away by being productive while sleeping, that would be ideal. But that's impossible. Productivity for me doesn't necessarily mean being actually productive in the "work" sense of things. Being able to finish a book that I started reading some four months ago --that's also productivity in my vocabulary. Or catching up on my favorite TV series minus the comforts of home. Now, I get to do that with iflix. Especially when I'm stuck in traffic. How's that for entertainment everywhere?
iflix is a video-on-demand service that lets you watch movies and TV shows for only Php99/month (special price for PLDT/Smart subscribers). You can link up to five devices to your account, letting you experience entertainment in multiple platforms wherever you are. Visit https://www.iflix.com/ to know more.

Speaking of traffic, how do you cope up with it? I remember saying this at one of my talks, "EDSA traffic is like our parents. We can't do anything about it." But I outsmart it with Waze. I'm not saying that the app is the perfect solution to this long-standing problem of Manila but it helps me spare a few minutes to get to an event a little earlier and probably ample time to park without getting late to an appointment. That is, if I'm the one who's driving. Well, you get the idea. That's convenience everywhere.

If you're following me on Instagram, I'm sure you've witnessed my travel exploits. Little did people know that I was also running half of my company while abusing the #ThePRGuyGoesTo hashtag. I was able to multi-task between jumping from one tourist spot to another to giving the thumbs up to the campaign layouts that was sent to me on Viber. At a recent product launch that my company organized, I and my team were able to visually update each other with the weather status and traffic conditions during our setup seamlessly using the app. Peace of mind everywhere. That's what I'm enjoying lately as someone who runs a company and a personal blog site at the same time.

And then there's the #SmartFreeIG where Smart Prepaid and Postpaid subscribers can now browse feed and upload photos and videos without data charges for free on Instagram. When used responsibly, #SmartFreeIG can be a very helpful and creative tool in updating the world with relevant updates on current events and what-not. But that deserves a different post.

Are you ready to live the #SmartLife?
