You’ve downloaded the looloo app to discover places in the Philippines.
But recently, you’ve been finding yourself checking the app more often than you check Facebook or Twitter. For some reason, you also happen to own one or two items out of the looloo merchandise. Heck you’ve even noticed you’re starting to gain a little
inflooence weight! Eep.
My friend, welcome to the club.
If you’re not sure you should be a member, here are the top 10 signs you are in fact, a looloo addict:
You find yourself constantly taking pictures of your food, the hotel pool, or even salon interiors.
At restaurants, you ask to be seated where there’s good light source for better-looking pictures (because you already know that flash makes your food photos look nasty). You’ve gotten looloo comments like “Nice photo!” and probably even had your photo shared on looloo’s Instagram account.
looloo is the first app you open when you wake up or the last thing you check before you go to bed.
With all the notifications you’re getting, not only could you be checking looloo more often than you check Facebook or Twitter, you might also even have more followers on it than your other social media accounts!
You’ve gone to a place just because “I read about it on looloo.”
You’ve also dragged your friends or family with you, excited to share with them this new place you’ve discovered. And although it’s a bit risky if they end up not liking the place (since you end up taking the blame), the reward is pretty cool if they enjoy their visit. This leads to sign #7.
Your friends call you “Ms./Mr. looloo,” “looloo expert” or just plain “looloo.”
Sometimes they even call you just to ask for place recommendations.
You know and use all the looloo app features.
You know how recommendations and credits affect your inflooence score, you keep lists of places (maybe even sorted by area or cuisine), you’ve played the secret breakout game, you know how to check menus, you’ve suggested a place at least once… seriously, what do you not know about using looloo?
In fact, when you took the looloo Quiz, you got a perfect score!
+100 points if you got a perfect score with just one try!
You’ve convinced a friend or a family member to join the looloo app.
Whether it’s for a giveaway entry or just so they also get dragged into the “club,” you’ve done it at least once. While it doesn’t automatically mean you were successful, you’ve at least tried one of these methods: bribery (“Kain tayo sa labas. Libre kita! Gawa ka ng looloo account tapos i-review mo ha?!), bullying or just plain begging.
You have at least one looloo swag item.
Whether it’s the looloo shirt, hoodie, sticker or payoong, you have at least one. Doesn’t matter how you got it – from a rendezvoos/eatup, mailed to you, borrowed, or stolen – you have it. That’s all that matters.
You may have also tried to drop super obvious hints to the looloo crew asking for swag (most commonly done for the looloo hoodie). You probably did this by showering them with compliments… but eventually found out that this tactic does not work. Ha. Nice try though.
You’ve attended an eatup, a rendezvoos or an unofficial eatup.
You know you’re a bonafide looloo addict when you’ve considered yourself part of the looloo community, so much so that you’re actually comfortable meeting with strangers (because looloo reviewers are friendly and are probably not going to steal your kidney).
You introduced each other with first name and last name initials (“Hello!!! I’m Peanut D! Are you Jacy L?!”), initially felt awkward but then stayed for hours upon hours just talking about food, places, and everything in between. You may have even used the word family to describe your set of looloo friends because really, that’s how it feels like.
You’ve made your very own looloo artwork.
This takes the number one spot. If you’ve found yourself creating a looloo pancake or a looloo flag bokeh, or perhaps asked a barista to make a looloo latte art, maybe paper twirled the looloo logo or found your daughter drawing it, then it’s guaranteed, you’ve been addicted.
There’s no turning back now! Embrace it because you’re awesome and we think you’re the coolest people to ever join looloo and we will forever be grateful you decided to become part of our small and humble community of explorers and food lovers. :)
