I noticed a bad case of insomnia from the past weeks. I tried so many tips to safely feel inaantok (apps, read books, watch a movie), but the harder it is to fall asleep for me, the even more difficult it is to wake up. Lalong lalo na kapag maaga the next day ang gising, the more I can't sleep!
When I saw these Instagram posts from my friends, I knew there is something new coming out in the next few days. Whether it is a legit antukin guy they all coincidentally spotted lang, or just to promote a new product or brand, I can surely RELATE to him big-time especially during long days when I did not get proper sleep the night before. :p Kulang nalang kasing lambot ng unan ang shoulder ng katabi ko sa bus. Lol.
Then I discovered this app that will make waking up in the morning more interesting: NESCAFÉ Wake Up or the Wake App promises to replace your boring alarm clocks.
You can download the NESCAFÉ Wake Up app, the first social alarm clock, via App Store or Google Play Store for free.
How it works: Like the usual alarm clock on your phones, just set the time you need to wake up:
And then the exciting part, choose whether you want to wake up to either...
1) Random Videos from NESCAFÉ Stars included in the Wake Up app:
OR 2) Get more social and interactive! Wake up to a personal video that you can record and share to your friends who also have the Wake Up app in their phones!
Actually, I found out about this app and the sleeping guy and how they are connected to each other via Sammy Snooze Facebook page a friend recently added. Nakakatawa tong tulog sa concert, sayang ang pera! Haha!
In the page, there are different challenges where you have to help wake Sammy Snooze up early for different missions... Like for the most recent one where "Sleeping Pogi" has to attend a Marathon with his barkada (na usually madaling araw ang call-time!).
The best part is the cash prize at stake! Sammy Snooze will choose THE BEST Wake Up App Alarm Video weekly, and the winner will receive P10, 000! Grabe 10k mang-gigising ka lang! So the app is actually not just useful for everyday personal call time, but also a chance to win pang shopping or pang travel money! Gising na gising nako guys! Haha.
There will be a weekly challenge + winner, so make sure to add Sammy on Facebook. To find out more about this App and Sammy Snooze, visit NESCAFÉ Philippines on Facebook!
