WeStory – Love at First WeChat

WeStory-Love

With over 600 million monthly active WeChatters around the world, we are always excited to hear how WeChat has created and strengthened connections among our users. Through our new series, WeStory, we plan to highlight a few of these standout stories.

 

This week, we feature Melisa and her boyfriend, Mickey – two lovebirds from Israel who are a living example of the modern fairytale, with WeChat as their fairy godmother.

Mickey, on the other hand, was more familiar with WeChat and used it as a way to communicate with the people he met while traveling and studying in China. When he returned to Israel, he often used the “People Nearby” feature to meet new friends and other Chinese speakers.

Singapore celebrations have already begun in anticipation of the nation’s 50th birthday on August 9, 2015. And do we have a treat for you! WeChat is bringing Ang Ku Kueh Girl (AKKG) stickers straight to WeChat.

 

Wang Shijia, the designer of the AKKG stickers, was inspired to create AKKG from the traditional Singaporean snack Ang Ku Kueh, or red tortoise cake, a soft sticky glutinous rice pastry wrapped around a sweet center.

 

The stickers are meant to spread the beauty of Singapore’s local heritage and culture through universal values such as love, kindness, tenacity and gumption.
