I Was At The Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon Fiesta!

Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon.

I've been seeing pictures of some fellow bloggers attending this event a few years back. They were nice, or awesome. 

And that made me attend the event once before. However, that was in the afternoon, and no hot air balloons were in sight. 

However, this year, I surprised myself (again). I woke up at 530am, just to go to the hot air balloon festival - and try to get the tickets for the tethered hot air balloon rides. 

Me and buddy arrived pretty early - like 645am. But by then, there was already a long queue. And bout 30 mins later.. the person in charge told us the "bad news" - that the tickets are all sold out. 

Preparation for the morning tethered hot air balloon rides.
In a way, I didn't miss the tethered balloon rides - it's pretty err.. low. 

So since that was off the itinerary, we proceeded to the empty field where the sponsored hot air balloons were being prepared for "take off".

Together with buddy +Eric Lee Huangshi . I have 3 cameras - the DSLR, the compact camera and the smartphone. But at the end of the day.. the smartphone rules!

Now, luckily my buddy loaned me his DSLR camera. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been allowed to enter the barricades. What a funny rule! For I carried that - really "just for show", and took photos with my smartphone instead!

One of the major highlights every year is the Darth Vader hot air balloon. And although it's been around every year (well, definitely not its first time as I've seen photos of it before).. so I had to take the photo of it. 

Oh ya, Darth Vader actually did "visit" Malaysia! 

The other hot air balloon that striked me is this blown up motorbike by Yamaha. 

But the ones, that I felt most proud of is the 2 hot air balloons from Taiwan. The cow one is sooooooo cute!

Those were the major highlights of the event. On the whole, it was a nice experience for a 1st time visitor.

Though personally, unless the organisers increase the number of balloons next year and have more unique balloons, I'll probably skip it. Oh but count me in if I get a free ride above the sponsored balloons! XD

Hot Air Balloon event - checked!

Tips For Songkran!

It's Songkran. And I surprise myself for not being in Bangkok this year. 

Oh well, for certain reasons, I have decided to skip the water festival. But that doesn't stop me from playing water, and having fun!

I called up 2 of my buddies, and we shot a video on tips to "surviving" Songkran. Or well you can call it "Tips For Songkran". 

Check it out below. And oh yes, the pink haired lady.. she's back! Haha!

Btw, here are some pics of us having fun after the shoot!

Oh Hey, I Spoke At Ninetology AirAsia Plane Livery Event!

Ninetology wrapped a AirAsia plane. Call that plastering its name across the plane end to end.

Cool branding in many ways, and definitely a "wow". 

And well, I was there, being part of the historic moment... taking some photos and well, giving a speech there too (oh wow!).

The plane.. is a plane, but when you have your brand name on it, it's definitely a proud moment. Congrats Ninetology in your dream of going ASEAN!

Me and teammate, +Eric Lee Huangshi . 

Me and PR mate and teammate Sofea. 

The big boss, CEO Sean giving his speech. Part of the main gist - Ninetology made RM180 million last year, and gonna make RM380 million in 2014. 

Oh and hey, it's me - giving my "speech". I shared about Our "So Wow For All" Marketing concept - which is about wow-ing fellow Ninetologians throughout this 2014. 

Me, the cosplayers, and the 4 colourful U9J1. Hello Catwoman, hello Elsa!

The 1st Wow - is the latest model, a full fledged Android phone.. which does everything a smartphone can do, but only for a price of RM199 (I know, wow!).

There's other Wows too. One of them is the #9Giveaway done every 9th of the month on Ninetology's FB. Last month, we gave out the 100 Doraemon event tickets (which was snapped up by the 1st hour.. yes wow!).

Upcoming will be a heartwarming webseries. Apart from the series, Ninetology will be going around old folks homes, and connecting the old folks with the loved ones by the Ninetology handsets (awwwww). 

There's a few other Wows for the year. But well, I didn't reveal further. For after all... the event was about the plane. And I think the plane needed its full glory :)

*I'm proud to have given the opportunity to speak at this event. The 2nd for me this year, so far.. the first being in MSMW. Yay!

*Btw for those of you who wanna watch my "speech".. here it is. I'm told by some, it's pretty awesome hahahaha! :P

Everything Is Awesome Parody (Lego Movie)

Lego Movie. That's totally AWESOME.

And so is the song - Everything Is Awesome.

I like the lyrics and the melody... and well, I did a parody out of it.

And here's my version. But with a changed title and well.. content.

Probably not for everyone, and pardon my singing. But oh well, hope you guys enjoy it one way or rather :)

So, here's, presenting Every Bear Is Awesome! Growl!

*2 song parodies so far. Now, what should my next song parody be? :P
