Funniest Home Videos | Random Vine Moments

I guess the Vine video-sharing app hype has died down {locally?} and hardly anyone I know uses it nowadays. Such a shame though! It is much fun and I still enjoy using it, even though Instagram has come out with its own video-taking function.

Haven't played around with Video on Instagram yet {shocker!} but what I know is basically, all you have to do is to tap the movie camera icon to enter the video mode, and then take up to 15 seconds of video through the Instagram camera. There's even 13 filters made specifically to apply to the video posts. Oh, you can upload videos from your camera roll & edit the clip too.

Sounds like so much win but for short video-clips, for now, I'm still sticking to Vine. I love its simple loop function and ease in embedding it into my posts without uploading the video to a third-party site like Youtube... both features that are lacking in Instagram video.

Anyway here are some of our recent Vine videos to share.

Failed Kracie Gummies Attempt

Lil Pumpkin loves to play with these Kracie Popin' Cookin' set and every time we're there, I buy a few sets back as it's cheaper than buying them locally. Unfortunately, we've yet to master making them look as pretty as what's shown on the box haha. You can read my review on the Obento Candy Kit here.

Longkang-fishing with Daddy!

This was the first time we went longkang-fishing and we had so much fun! Pretty sure we'll be back to Pasir Ris Kid's Kampong again soon ;)

How to Milk A Cow

Sometimes, Lil Pumpkin does the random-est things and here she is teaching me how to milk a cow. Scroll over the video and click on the sound icon to turn it on for this one. It is pretty adorable ;)

Her Interpretive Dance Style

Our little drama queen loves to dance to her own beat as well. Definitely one of her best qualities, I feel, as she knows how really dance like no one is watching, love like she'll never be hurt, sing like there's nobody listening and live like it's heaven on earth~!


Lil Pumpkin is learning simple Japanese words and phrases. I think her pronunciation is pretty good and I love her cutesy voice!!! Note to self: must try to take more videos of her speaking...

Are you on Vine or Instagram? If you are, add me as  @AiSakuraHaruka :)

Thanks for the mini review- interestingly I downloaded the Vine app but never got around to using it before videos landed in my IG feed. I've used that already but didn't know the differences between apps. I don't get sound on these ones here- should I have? Fave is the dancing! #teamIBOT

I never did get around to using vine. I don't shoot a lot of video though. However, I loved watching yours :)
