Having a Little Fun on Facebook with PhotoFunia


I’ve had two big surprises this week. The first was when Wonderful Wi telephoned me and told me she was appearing on the front cover of American fashion and lifestyle magazine Vogue. And as you can see in the photograph on the right, there she is. Amazing. That’s got to be a first for a Thai rural girl and a great advertisement for the makers of the 500 baht watch and 100 baht earrings she’s wearing.

The second surprise came as an even bigger shock to me. Beyond The Mango Juice has a few regular readers and one is someone very famous. Very famous indeed, but I never thought in my wildest dreams they’d publicly admit to reading the kind of rubbish I publish on this site. How wrong could I be.

Are you ready for this……

Okay I’ll admit the Vogue picture might have had a slight sniff of fooling you but there’s no way the one above ever would…. I’m very selective about who gets subscription to ‘The Juice’.

The photographs are the amazing works of website PhotoFunia. And I think their photo fun program is ideal for Facebook users and even bloggers like myself. So much fun that I couldn’t resist sharing it readers.

Below are some more examples of the kind of things you can do at Photofunia’s funny photo website.

Here’s yours truly appearing on the big screen at Piccadilly Circus in the Big Smoke.

In this one Wilai has her own army of admirers as she goes public at an art gallery. Almost anything is possible at PhotoFunia.

You can even turn your photos into drawings at Photofunia and they have over 400 different images to choose from.

Have some fun with Photofunia and amaze your Facebook followers with their fantastic photo editing tool.

  1. I’m BACK! And I can finally see you!
    (Oh. And lot more of you than expected 😀

    Martyn, I don’t know what you did to piss off the Burmese but yours was the only site they didn’t like … lol …

    Great fun seeing a few of your made up banners coming across FB – looks like fun.

  2. Catherine – Heaven knows what I’ve done to upset Thailand’s neighbours. I can only think of one mention I’ve ever made about Burma and that was in my post The Thai Two Finger Salute, which was apparently aimed (the salute) at the Burmese army….

    PhotoFunia is an easy to use application and like it says, you can have a lot of fun with your photos using it.

  3. Martyn, I’m not sure if Burma is that sensitive but who knows. Some of countries in SE Asia get all fluffy over not much.

    I work with Photoshop quite a lot (as a designer, no surprises there) so I can see the potential of PhotoFunia.

    Here’s some of my weirdness using photos (combined body parts to make all new people):

  4. Catherine – I had a peek at Katz-i and your design(s), very nice and well done to you and the company for your long-term sponsorship of the Brunei Music Society. Does Katz-i mean cats eyes or is the Katz a reference to you?…. or am I purring at the wrong tree?

  5. Cartherine – I had to look up pro bono. Here’s some of what Sticky Wiki came up with;

    Pro bono service, unlike traditional volunteerism, uses the specific skills of professionals to provide services to those who are unable to afford them.

    Kudos to you.

  6. Pro bono is a great way to give back, while staying professional (continue to use invoices and professional business practices).

    Setting WLT up with a pro bono twist made sense.

    Ad proceeds on WLT go to the SET Foundation. The money goes to put deserving Thai kids through uni.

    Deserving = good grades + struggling to pay for the necessities (school uniforms, books, transit, food, accommodation, etc).

  7. Catherine – WLT is a great language resource and the ad proceeds are invaluable to the SET Foundation’s work in Thailand. Even more kudos to you. Keep up the great work on WLT and I’m sure you’ll be getting even more hits in the future. The thing I think most people appreciate about about WLT is that its endless resources cover Thai language at all levels from the beginner to those at the top the the tree.

    I’ve now run out of kudos… I will restock.
