Astro On The Go Explorer: I Win Samsung Galaxy S4!

Saya menang Samsung Galaxy S4 hanya dengan berlari-lari anak di dalam Sunway Pyramid untuk Astro On-The-Go Explorer event with Joel. Yeah, right. Me and Joel were paired up as #Team17 for this fantastic Astro challenge last Saturday.

How I got to be part of Astro On-The-Go Explorer? Sebab I submit a last minute entry to be part of the participating bloggers: I am the Unstoppable Explorer: The Backpacker.

Ok. Let's cut to the chase. Here are some the best moments I had during the Astro On-The-Go Explorer event with Joel:

1. "Free" iPad was given to both me and Joel. Though a bit confused about who is the pilot and co pilot. Haha! Unlike usual contest, we were loaned with iPads and modem for the race.

2. Paired up with Joel. I was already delighted when i saw his blog title: It means he's wayyyyy younger than me and hopefully knows Sunway Pyramid better than me. And what a wonderful news-he studies nearby, selalu lepak and already did his study about Sunway Pyramid. Double yayyyy!

3. Huffing and puffing a bit throughout the contest, but still manage to get the following awesome pics as part of the race:

We are not actually running, but Joel is tall with long legs. So his two steps, shorty-me need to take 3 steps. Kecian ai.

4. Free Delicious buffet from Delicious! Delicious food, delicious waiter. Erk?? Ye ke?

5. Ogling and feasting my eyes with Astro stars: Aaron Aziz, Johan, JinnyBoy and many more. rugi korang tak join.

6. Mingling with top and popular bloggers: Redmummy, Abang Nara, EyriqazzRawlins Penaberkala, MiraCikcit, Mahamahu and others. eventhough they dont know me. hehe.

7. The BEST part ever : MENANG Samsung Galaxy 4 of course! Although we were confused when we finished it in just 44 mins. And due to some misunderstandings, we do the race twice!!  But worthwhile, so we complain no more  =b

8. Kena puji dengan Joel at his blog entry post-event: Astro On the Go Explorer- Joel's Experience.
I'm really blessed to pair up with him. The race was easy breezy coz somehow we complement each other while trying to solve all the puzzles. I was at 1st worried I wont be much of a help since I rarely watch Astro lately.

How do i foresee myself utilizing Astro On-The-Go in the future? VERY MUCH! The main reason is because I already lose my chance to win additional RM800 from Astro by not being a subscriber. *double sigh*

Another reason, like what was mentioned at I am the Unstoppable Explorer: The Backpacker,I'm a frequent traveller. Not just oversea, but I'm not even really at my house in Malaysia.So for Atika On-The-Go, I really need:
  • Awesome handphone with good battery life, just like Samsung Galaxy S4 that I have won. hehe
  • A good and powerful Power Bank. 
  • Astro On-The-Go package.
P/S to NUFFNANG: Don't disqualify me to win the Astro On-The-Go Explorer Best Buzz Bloggers because I won the S4 tauuuuu.. I want to win more!

Movie Review: Pee Mak Thai Comedy Horror

Thanks to ChurpChurp for the #Churpremiere invitation of Pee Mak yesterday! OMG! OMG! This movie is definitely top of the must-watched movie for all movie-goers. 

As usual, I watched the movie with Mr. Fareed Adaboy, my faithful movie partner. Part of me wish I got the Fast & Furious 6 tickets, but I really love the fact Pee Mak premiere screening is at Midvalley. Especially when I know Sharizan & Irzad are also joining with their friends.

While waiting for the movie, Fareed & I watched the Pee Mak trailer shown nearby the counter. Alamak! I was already laughing just by watching the trailer!

And yesssssss. When we watched the movie, we are not disappointed. Seriously full of laughters from start until the end.  No wonder Pee Mak is the highest grossing horror movie in Thailand, even though this is a comedy horror. Synopsis of Pee Mak: If you know about Nang Nak, this movie is based on it. The most funny character are Shin and Puak - both with a very unique hairstyle.

Make sure you watch the movie until the credit ends. The ending was brilliantly executed and funny as hell. Pee Mak will be in cinemas from 6 June. Lucky I watched it 2 weeks earlier!

Much to our delight, GSC hired a "Nak ghost" outside. Of course everybody swarmed to take picture with her. hehehe.

My verdict: 5 out of 5!!!!
Mood: Happy giler before, during and after the movie.

K-POP Dream Concert vs Stinger Ride

Korean Pop Stars seem to make Malaysia as their second home eh? hehehe. Feels like every month, we can enjoy their concerts, without burning your wallet to fly to South Korea.

This time around, the Korean wave is hitting Resort World Genting in 23-24 May. The K-POP Dream Concert Live in Malaysia 2013 will feature SISTAR, Brown Eyed Girls (B.E.G.), 4Minute, Born to Beat (BtoB) and GNa. Super gorgeous, yummilicious and superb K-pop songs in 1 stage!

If you asked me who I want to personally meet from the superb list, I would say Born to Beat (BtoB) of course! No offense girls, but I will not look good posing with all you beautiful ladies.. Haha. Being in the centre of yummy boys, will boost my confidence level better. Plus, it will make a good cover picture on my Facebook - making my boyfriends girlfriends green with envy. 

Want to win a trip to South Korea? Purchase your ticket now! U might win the following:
  • Trip to Korea for 1 Pax ( Flight ticket + accommodation + meal + tour for 3 days 2 nights)
  • Genting Grand Premier Room: 2 nights stay + breakfast for 1 pax.
More info refer to: K-Pop Dream Concert in Genting

Btw, do you know that Genting Theme Park has introduced the all-new ride call the Stinger. It is dubbed as Malaysia's FIRST & TALLEST Hydromagnetic Coaster, and will challenge you to take the plunge at 6,118 feet above sea level!! 

Located at the Genting Outdoor Theme Park, this ride seems like a roller coaster + water ride. Really have no idea how it looks like yet, but maybe using some sort of magnetic pull and then making you wet when it plunges into the water.

OMG!! Will you just see at this Stinger Rider's Guide? I'm wondering whether they will put on a weighing scale before we can go into the ride. LOL! Me alone can kawtim already the minimum weight. Haishhh.. But doesn't matter which arrangement, the probability of me sitting in front is very high since I'm the heaviest usually.

Man, the Stinger ride will really motivate me to lose weight! For more info on the Stringer ride (so far), refer to: Stinger Ride in Genting Theme Park!

Have you heard of Acer Aspire P3 Convertible Ultrabook™? Acer had announced that Acer Aspire P3 Convertible Ultrabook™ is "the world's first ultrabook convertible". Along with its 11.6-inch HD display, 3.06 pounds weight and less than an inch thick, Acer also promises more than 6 hours of battery life, fast boot and resume times and the HDMI and USB 3.0 ports.

Awesome! I really love the video, not your typical promo video. Just by hearing the introduction of the video, straight away you will know: Ultrabook™ Inspired by Intel.

So here's a summary of the powerful Acer Aspire P3 Convertible Ultrabook™: Ultraportable, Detachable, Touch Centric and MultiTasking. Everybody can be like Vernon! hehehe.

I Am The Unstoppable Explorer:The Backpacker

I am a backpacker, or a flashpacker at some points. That's why I called myself an unstoppable explorer. I don't let any reasons to stop me from travelling few times a year. With limited budget, with only 12 days annual leave (OMG!), with no prior travel experience -  I will make sure it will not disrupt my travel plan!

The most recent challenges I faces was during my 1st backpacker solo trip to Seoul, Korea from 25 April - 1 May. It was my 1st time ever travelling solo, and it was also the 1st time I'm travelling further than Southeast Asia.

Of course I was kinda scared. Not only it was my 1st solo trip, I was also not well-prepared and money was scarce at that time. The only preparation was just printing out few pages on some guides on where to go, where to stay and where to eat. But Alhamdulillah, I manage to handle all the obstacles by making new friends, using my common sense and with a lot of help from the maps! Some of my plans change due to unexpeced encounters with few Malaysian and new Korean friends - but I was flexible and just go through with it. 

As a frequent traveler, the most esential gadget is my Android mobile phone.It serves as my phone, my medium to connect to the Internet as well as my faithful camera. 

That's also why Astro-On-The-Go is very helpful! Yeah, you can get cable movies from the hotel but most of the time, it is not in English or with a subtitle that I understand. hehe. I'm not exactly a couch potato, but Astro-On-The-Go allows me to explore and watch my favourite programmes and the best of Astro anytime, anywhere.
