Free Video Streaming All Day Every Day!

When I first heard about this free video streaming 24 hours a day everyday from U Mobile called VIDEO-ONZ, naturally I was sceptical. It sounds like something straight out of a dream.

Could something that sounds so good be true? Well, I went to the launch of VIDEO-ONZ and yes, it’s definitely real.

With 11 content partners to choose from on VIDEO-ONZ, you will be spoilt for choice on what to stream. They aren’t just some obscure content providers as well, I mean we are talking about folks like YouTube, HyppTV Everywhere, Viu, iflix, Astro on the Go, tonton, Youku Tudou, ErosNow, HeroTalkies, ONFM and Pocketimes!

As long as you stream from these 11 partners, your existing data plan with U Mobile remains untouched! What is this sorcery?

According to U Mobile’s Chief Marketing Officer, Ms Jasmine Lee, VIDEO-ONZ was conceived when they noticed that there’s a spike in data usage for video streaming during the time they offered free YouTube and tonton streaming for off-peak hours back in October 2014.

In fact, there was a 14 times increase in data usage for video streaming and with that in mind, U Mobile decided that the next course of action was to create something that will enhance all of U Mobile customers’ experience. Lo and behold, VIDEO-ONZ was born.

I just love how customer-centric U Mobile has always been and still is :)

VIDEO-ONZ free unlimited content streaming is available (based on standard definition video quality) for all customers on P70, i90 and i130 postpaid plans while for customers on prepaid, other postpaid and broadband plans, they will receive an extra 100% free data for VIDEO-ONZ. On top of that, all UMI customers get to enjoy free extra 1GB of data until 30 June 2016!

My current favourite way to keep mosquitoes away.

Keeping Liam from getting bitten by mosquitoes is one of my main struggles as a new parent. News of rising dengue cases are really scary. In fact my own brother was admitted for dengue a couple of months ago :( So glad he’s recovered.

It doesn’t help matter that I do take Liam along for my dog walking sessions daily in a nearby park where mossies thrive!

It’s a weekly occurrence that he gets bitten at least a few times and it pains me to see the bumps on his skin :(

Thing is, while I could use powerful mosquito repellant on myself, I can’t do so for Liam as he’s just a baby with delicate skin. Lets not even begin on the risks of his skin developing allergies.

There are plenty of products out there in the market for babies and kids but my favourite currently is from the trusted brand name, Tiger Balm.

Coming in packs of 10s, each patch is individually packed to ensure its efficacy.

I love that the patches have only natural active ingredients and no scary chemicals such as DEET.

It’s very easy to use. Just open the packet, take the patch out and peel off the back layer and stick it on clothes, prams/strollers or baby carriers. It’s sufficiently sticky and works best on fabric material.

No worries about it leaving sticky residue, not on my stuff anyway.

I use the patches on our walks, sticking one to Liam’s baby carrier. I swear it keeps both of us from mossie bites. There’s no need for skin contact, a huge plus.

I also stick the patches on Liam’s clothes when he’s playing in his play yard, which is located in the corner of the living room, a favourite hangout place for nasty mosquitoes.

And of course, Liam has been mossie bites free since I started using the patches.

That to me, is the biggest reason why I love Tiger Balm’s Mosquito Repellent Patch.
