It was quite some time since I last attended a bloggers gathering or party. I didn’t expect much when I was invited for the WeChat Party 2013, held at Club Neverland, Kuala Lumpur, on 2nd of April 2013.
When I arrived at the club at Jalan Kia Peng, I was pretty stunned to see so many bloggers, and it’s not a bloggers party to begin with.
Minus all the new faces of the new generation of bloggers whom I don’t really know of, I was really surprised to see quite a number of old faces, whom I haven’t seen in parties like this for couple of years.
Reunions aside, what is WeChat?
If you are a smartphone user, be it iOS, Android, Blackberry, or Windows Phone devices, you would heard of and could be using WeChat already.
It’s a messaging application just like any other messaging applications that you might already know of, but this WeChat is one of the fastest growing messaging app around!
