App-solutely Fabulous – How Apps Make Local Lekker Again @HuaweiZA #HMS

Hi Friends,

Eish. A little nugget of a word that has become firmly entrenched in the South African vernacular. Originally a Khoi term used to express surprise, this utterance has become the mantra of lamenting South Africans: a cry of frustration at the latest round of load shedding, disappointment as the Proteas suffer a crushing defeat or annoyance as a taxi cuts us off on our way to the office. But the word has many other uses – an articulation of incredulity, excitement, gratitude … an almost endless list. 

The flexibility with which we wield our language is probably a good indication of our overall resilience and adaptability as a nation. When faced with a situation presenting unique challenges or opportunities, the ‘maak ‘n plan’ mentality usually kicks in.

Tech giant and smartphone manufacturer, Huawei, understands the importance of thinking on your feet better than most businesses. Landing in the center of a tussle between the US government and China that resulted in a trade ban, Huawei was forced to create their own Android experience without Google. 

“Our aim was to ensure that our users have a familiar and seamless experience when using their smartphones,” explains Vice President of Huawei Consumer Group, Middle East & Africa, Likun Zhao. “When we developed HUAWEI Mobile Services, our approach was to create an interface that users could immediately recognize and navigate.”

As part of Huawei’s efforts to empower users through familiarity and simplicity, the HUAWEI AppGallery – their official app distribution platform – provides intelligent recommendations of popular local and nearby apps. This enables users to access geographically relevant apps quickly and easily. HUAWEI has also added a ‘wishlist’ to its HUAWEI AppGallery to allow users to identify desired apps that are not currently offered. Once this app goes on-shelf, the user who submitted the request receives a notification.
App-solutely Fabulous – How Apps Make Local Lekker Again @HuaweiZA #HMS
So, how are we making use of local apps to address some of our distinctly South African challenges?

Namola
South Africa struggles with an under-resourced police force. The Namola app allows users to request police assistance at their GPS-calculated location, instead of simply phoning 10111 and requesting assistance via telephone.

This increases response time and efficiency in an emergency situation by ensuring that police from the closest station are dispatched. It also decreases the chance of misinformation and misunderstandings — a problem that can arise when information is passed telephonically.

Namola’s website data analytics allow police to identify crime hotspots and deploy resources accordingly. The app also allows citizens to rate police responses, and for police to rate citizen call-outs, ensuring there is a feedback loop.

Load Shedding Notifiers
Discussions around the various stages of load shedding have become as commonplace in South Africa as sunshine and braais. But now there are apps to help us to manage the inconvenience. 

Load Shedding Notifying apps such as EskomSePush and Load Shedding Notifier monitor the current Eskom load shedding status and notifies you if the power is scheduled to go off in your area.

JOOX Music
South African music is as rich and varied as its people. The JOOX app lets you listen to top South African hip-hop, kwaito, Afrikaans, pop, electronic, and rock songs, but also offers all the chart-topping international tracks across every popular music genre.

Takealot
With the slogan ‘fast, reliable delivery to your door’, Takealot has brought convenience and choice to harried South African shoppers.

Gone are the days of driving across town from one mall to the other to find your color, size or specification – this app offers safety and security from the comfort of your home or office.

MiBlackBox
MiBlackBox is the perfect app for a witness, a victim or a bystander to record an event for future reference or proof. At a touch of a button, MiBlackBox records sounds, phone calls, and videos and uploads them to a cloud server. This means that whatever happens to the phone, the recordings will all be safe.

Hi Friends, 

Many things make up our thought patterns, perceptions and our way of seeing things and we always cast it in gold that it will be how we think it will be. But those are the shackles that will be broken sooner or later as you travel across the world and that's why they say that it's great to travel so that it open not only your eyes but the mind too. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @MeraasDubai #LaMer #MeraasDubai #PhotoReviews
Dubai has so many eye-openers which you won't think that even exists in the city of Dubai but they are made world-class rather brought the world to the grand city of Dubai, UAE. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @MeraasDubai #LaMer #MeraasDubai #PhotoReviews
Meraas Dubai has developed a La Mer Beach and the area around the beach into an old town and shopping mall full of restaurants, bistro, cafes, food trucks and the lovely graffiti walls and sea view. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @MeraasDubai #LaMer #MeraasDubai #PhotoReviews
In short, it a small Laguna which is just like an old American town where you see cowboys and there are stores that only exist in America and are retailing in Dubai. Someone definitely took the inspirations from the old Hollywood movies or the actual towns in the USA. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @MeraasDubai #LaMer #MeraasDubai #PhotoReviews
La Mer is a 2.5km long beachfront of relaxing white sand that incorporates minimalist and contemporary design overlooking the Arabian Gulf.  
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @MeraasDubai #LaMer #MeraasDubai #PhotoReviews
The shops will suit the needs of a child to an elderly person to just relax along the beachfront. It also suits the pockets of every individual with products and eating joints ranging from food trucks to five-star restaurants.  
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @MeraasDubai #LaMer #MeraasDubai #PhotoReviews
I totally loved walking around the La Mer beach despite the sun which was shining so high that even opening eyes was difficult that day. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @MeraasDubai #LaMer #MeraasDubai #PhotoReviews
Overall, La Mer is something you would want to go, chill and relax with your friends and family. Even if you go alone, it's a place to just buy your favorite drink or ice cream and chill on the beach. Totally worth your time and try to go in the evenings or night unless you want to enter the Arabian Gulf for a swim in the ocean. For more photos and other destinations to visit, give me a follow on Instagram channels (/thelifesway) or see more posts on www.thelifesway.com

#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa II @TheDubaiMall #PhotoReviews

Hi Friends, 

You can imagine how difficult is it to sustain the confectionary business where we see that the chocolates we used to eat in our childhood are no longer in the country and we are talking about the shop which was opened in Hamidiye Street during the Ottoman Empire in 1864 and is still standing tall.
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa Final @TheDubaiMall #PhotoReviews
Though founded by the father named Ismail Hakki Zade, the shop is on the name of his son Hafiz Mustafa who invented and founded Pogaca which are palm-sized buns with or without any kind of filling. Though father also was selling Akide which is hard candy.
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa Final @TheDubaiMall #PhotoReviews
Hafiz Mustafa was so good that he won 11 awards in Europe between 1926 to 1938 for his delicacies in the field of confectionary. Later his son Cecil took over before taken over by his wife and daughter. This is told that during this time the professionalism to be the world leaders made the confectionary gain word of mouth.
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa Final @TheDubaiMall #PhotoReviews
The company has changed hands thrice in the last 156 years of history and always been serving customers from around the world with the best of Baklavas, Turkish delights, hard candies, milk puddings, cakes, and many more items.
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa Final @TheDubaiMall #PhotoReviews
Despite being such a successful brand, the staff was cordial and helped to get you to your tongue's experimentation with various kinds of flavors with all respect. They never told no or pressured you to buy because they know you will as the taste slowly grows on you if you are eating for the first time also.
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa Final @TheDubaiMall #PhotoReviews
They offer sweets in different containers which can be called as gift-ready or collectibles if you like tin containers to keep your valuables later. Also, you can choose a single piece of different items and they will pack everything for you to enjoy at your leisure at home.
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa Final @TheDubaiMall #PhotoReviews
The baklava is mouth-watering and my wife totally loved the Pista version of the same. I really liked the Turkish delight in the Pomegranate flavor. The rates will be a bit higher as already told as compared to the rates at Duty-free shops in airports offering various other kinds of Turkish delights and baklava.
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa Final @TheDubaiMall #PhotoReviews
If you are visiting Istanbul or Dubai, do check out this shop in Dubai Mall if in Dubai and check more of the picture in my first part of Hafiz Mustafa Photo Review. As I am reminding myself, my mouth is watering to get these delicacies again in my life sometime soon. Till that time keep safe and enjoy the next post and don't forget to follow me on TheLifesWay

#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa1864 @TheDubaiMall - #PhotoReviews

Hi Friends, 

Someone rightly said that to win the heart of anyone, you need to make his tongue happy and what's better than a dessert which he can't say no to. I have always been a fan of chocolates, candies, sweets and whatever has sugar in it. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa1864 @TheDubaiMall - #PhotoReviews
Delicacies like these don't come cheap and when you are standing in the biggest mall in Dubai named Dubai Mall, you don't think about saving money. Once you have tasted the testers offered by the store, I don't think you can come out without buying even the cheapest one on display. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa1864 @TheDubaiMall - #PhotoReviews
Dubai Mall has more footfall than anything else in the world even New York Times Square in a calendar year. Dubai Mall has everything a person can desire in his life from the Apple store to a luxurious apartment in Burj Khalifa. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa1864 @TheDubaiMall - #PhotoReviews
Hafiz Mustafa is an Istanbul based company founded in 1864 and making the best Turkish Delights and Baklava since then. They have definitely maintained quality and offer you the best of the best in their trade. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa1864 @TheDubaiMall - #PhotoReviews
Don't forget the name if you are in Dubai Mall just came out of Burj Khalifa the shop is right there and also they have a cafe to take care of your coffee and tea requirements. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa1864 @TheDubaiMall - #PhotoReviews
There will be something for every age and sugar level intake at this shop. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa1864 @TheDubaiMall - #PhotoReviews
I totally fell in love with the presentation of food items on the shopping windows and all these photos are what is displayed in the windows. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa1864 @TheDubaiMall - #PhotoReviews
The child in me really wanted all the candies inside this tray as I wanted to grab them in my hands and start munching the Turkish delights in different tastes and flavors. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @HafizMustafa_tr #HafizMustafa1864 @TheDubaiMall - #PhotoReviews
They also offer plenty of suitable gift items in your price range to take the best Turkish delights and baklava for your loved ones across the world. Follow me on my travel-related Instagram handle - @thelifesway and comment, share and repost. In the end, I would definitely say that these items on the shelved definitely took my heart away into the fantasy world of Willy Wonka.

#TheLifesWayCaptures - @LandRoverZA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews

Hi Friends, 

In continuation and separating the two cars under the same Tata Group who bought Jaguar and Land Rover from Ford in June 2008. You won't believe it's an Indian car or owned by an Indian company TATA. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @LandRoverZA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
Coming back to these ultra-luxurious vehicles fitted with the technology to make your heart fall in love and to keep your family safe and comfortable. Range Rover, Land Rover, and Discovery are the three range of products in their arsenal. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @LandRoverZA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
Life is all about experiencing different things whatever it may be travel, cars, food or introspection. I can surely tell you that these cars will make you want them immediately. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @LandRoverZA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
The automatic controls keep checking the brakes when you are coming downhill to control the speed by itself or you can do it yourself manually. And it does so without any kind of skidding as it gives preferential power to any of the tires as required. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @LandRoverZA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
The vehicles range from R700k upwards and come in both Petrol and Diesel versions and the best part is that you can customize your own vehicle. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @LandRoverZA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
It can easily tilt up to 45 degrees before being getting turtled and the infotainment screen shows at what angle you are currently driving your car.  
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @LandRoverZA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
Turns and curves are part of the game at the experience center and there comes a point where the car tilts from one part to another and running on 3 tires only. But the control is so smooth that even who is not advanced driver will be able to do it with the artificial intelligence built into the car. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @LandRoverZA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
Finally, the car can easily cross any stream or river without getting stuck but I do assume there must be some limitations to the same. But you can go and watch the process at the Jaguar Landrover Experience Centre in Lonehill any day. Go check it out and take a lot of photos as a 90-minute experience can be booked with the experience center at around R1300 at 1 Capricorn Drive, Lonehill, Sandton from Monday to Sunday - 8am to 5pm. Call them at 010 023 0462
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @LandRoverZA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
Finally, the sun is never going to set on Land Rover as it's the luxury you can have in your life and will give you the freedom to be yourself. I wish the same for myself and I do dream to own one in my lifetime. 

Namaste!!!

#TheLifesWayCaptures - @JaguarSA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews

Hi Friends,

I am always interested in participating in Instagram meets and when Explore ZA Johannesburg who actively organizes Instameets every alternate month and also Day Workshops in Photography and videography. I asked my family and friends to visit as it will be my first time at JLR Experience in Lonehill, Johannesburg, South Africa. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @JaguarSA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
I never thought about performance cars as they are always beyond my budget and I have no need for speed. I always want to drive the car which I can buy and that's my idea of a test drive.
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @JaguarSA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
At first sight, you feel the beauty of these cars and when you hear the sound of their guzzle it really makes you stand in awe. I didn't enter the queue to drive these cars on the skid pan or on the drifting spin but took these photos. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @JaguarSA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
The Jaguar is a beautiful sports car the way it handles and it's in the same category as Ford Mustang and other high-performance cars. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @JaguarSA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
The feature on these cars can handle the fast speed, brakes and the overall security it provides in case it goes out of control is amazing. ABS switched On brings the car back on track within milliseconds.  
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @JaguarSA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
JLR experience is something that took away my thinking of driving only those cars which I can afford but also to experience vehicles that are out of my reach to remember the drivability. It has made me more open and acceptable to other vehicles. 
#TheLifesWayCaptures - @JaguarSA #JLRExperience #Lonehill - #PhotoReviews
Go check it out and take a lot of photos as a 90-minute experience can be booked with the experience centre at around R1300 at 1 Capricorn Drive, Lonehill, Sandton from Monday to Sunday - 8am to 5pm. Call them at 010 023 0462 or email jaguarbookings@experience.jaguar.co.za

#SamsungPay Hits 2 Million Transactions In #SouthAfrica @SamsungMobileSA

Hi Friends,

Growth continues unabated on Samsung Pay, the most widely accepted mobile payment solution in South Africa. Samsung Pay has seen a dramatic uptake in usage reaching the one million transactions mark in August 2019 followed shortly thereafter by the two million transactions milestone in February 2020, clearly indicating its’ growing popularity. The effortlessly simple and secure mobile payment solution has changed the way we pay, with the ability to activate multiple payment cards from our banking partners in one digital wallet.

#TheLifesWayCaptures - Dubai Marina Mall #Dubai #UAE - #PhotoReviews

Hi Friends,

Emaar is one of the biggest property developers in Dubai, UAE. Other than them I could see DAMAC, Meraas, and DP Group and there must be many more which I was not able to recognize or recall in my short 96 hours trip in Dubai. 
Dubai Marina Mall is full of shops with all your favorite retailers trading throughout the day. I didn't enter any of the shops as shopping was not on my agenda and seeing the place was the top priority. And I didn't find the price difference too much so as to buy further as my bags were already overflooded with the things bought from India already. 
The area is surrounded by many hotels and in this picture, it's Crown Plaza which really became visible due to this white mesh. The one thing I observed in my trip is that even the grills outside homes or shopping places parking area it's all different designs and no design gets repeated in the same area. 
The lights in the night are enough to make your walk easy and make you feel like a great flashing city vibrating with energy, music, and vibes. It feels so great to see day in the night but the only problem is that you need to close your curtains as I lived on 38th floor in Airbnb apartment and it was difficult to sleep with windows open due to neon lights. 
The river near the buildings makes it always look great for morning and evening walks. I saw a lot of people running and jogging in the morning and evenings. The city is well connected with trams, buses, tubes and multiple sources of public transports. 
I missed traveling in the ferry which I generally always makes a point as it gives a great angle from the mid of the river for taking the shores photos. You need to be really rich to enjoy all the luxuries in Dubai but you can also survive as there are restaurants and takeaways offering a full-fledged meal in around AED12-17 which is enough to make your tummy full. Also, Zomato Dubai offers a lot of offers to get your food delivered at home and it will save on the parking that you need to pay everywhere you park your car. More on the other stories later in the series!!!

#TheLifesWayCaptures - Dubai Marina Walk #Dubai #UAE - #PhotoReviews

Hi Friends,

Dubai is full of skyscrapers and the first day we went around our Airbnb flat walking in and around Dubai Marina Mall and Marina Walk. It felt so great to go on an evening walk in the main district of Dubai as we generally don't walk here in Johannesburg unless it's a race event.

Dubai has a walkway built all around the roads in this Emaar Properties area. The people stop their cars in case you are crossing the road even when the lights are green for the vehicles. This is a high-level behavior for the walkers which I only saw in Singapore long ago in 2006.

It reminded me of the walk around the Thames river when I used to work in Red Lion Court in Southwark near London Bridge, London, UK. There are restaurants and eateries around the walk and it totally felt European. The ferries go from here till the Burj Khalifa and you can book a tour that is available twice a day.

There are ferries, personal ships, and yachts going around the pier. It really brings you to a city which has been made keeping the future proof and made smart to the smartest. There is a lot of construction going on in and around the area and it keeps growing with time.

The buildings all around the yachts reminded me of the Canary Wharf and St Katharine Docks Marina which is very near to the Tower of London. These photos are clicked from the Emaar Marina Mall food court and the walk around the same.

Emaar Marina Mall is an awesome mall and we had a Vegetarian Paneer Pizza at the Pizza Hut which was not up to our expectations from the Pizza Hut franchise. But as it might be the local taste hence you can't say anything but after eating at the Pizza Hut in India at Ansal Mall, Gurugram you can't compare anything as the taste is superb. 

Namaste!!!
