Watch Astro on the Go for FREE!

Did any of you managed to visit Astro on the Go (AOTG) Campus roadshow last month? I dropped by Help Uni campus to check out the roadshow after my events that day because am curious about the promotions and free gifts!

Managed to snap a picture of the crew before they are busy signing up the the crowd!

Emcee busy attracting the students!

Although it was scorching hot that day but that did not stop students from coming to the booth to check out the Astro on the Go booth!

The friendly crews are busy explaining what is Astro on the Go all about and how one can install them in their smartphone, table and computer for free!

I realised a lot of guys came by the booth when they saw the World Cup poster at the booth! First question they asked, got free World Cup match to watch ah ?

Joe Flizzow's #GilaBola

It's World Cup fever now... and thanks to that I officially had  cute panda eyes! 

Have you heard Joe Flizzow’s x Celcom new song #gilabola (#footballfever)? It's a big hit and if you haven't make sure you watch the video! 

Absolutely love his song because the lyric bola bola is so addictive... and keep playing on my mind!! The music video is a#truestory of people who#gilabola where it talks about the typical habits of ‘football mad’ fans of all ages and origins, like staying up all night just to watch the matches (yeh I'm talking about myself!).

Now it's very excited to watch the group eliminating matches and I'm rooting for Brazil...and I absolutely love their samba  (freestyler technique) technique in controlling the ball...but seems like they have to win against Cameroon to enter top 16 ! Germany and Netherlands team looks really aggressive and I think are the biggest competitor! My favourite players are Messi from Argentina and Luis Suarez from Uruguay, I think either one of them going to be Man of the Match for this year FIFA World Cup 2014!

Ah.. since all these matches are live at midnight... I think I got to put on more masks while watching!

I found out that by sharing all our football-mad moments with the hashtag #gilabola on Instagram... we might be really luck to be even appearing in Joe Flizzow's next video! 

Full lyric of the song can be found

Terengganu Rip Curl Pro 2012, a 6-star Asian Surfing Championship Event

If you have been following my facebook, twitter & intagram , you will know that I was sent to witness Terengganu Rip Curl Pro 2012 at Pantai Batu Burok, Kuala Terengganu with another 9 bloggers! 
It was a long journey to Kuala Terengganu but it was all worth it, especially this is my first time attending such an eye opening event!

The event was opened to the public and it was crowded during Friday and Saturday especially during the evening as it was their off day (yes Terengganu, Kelantan and Kedah has their weekends off on Fri & Sat), while Sunday was slightly a bit quiet cos it was a working day!

All thanks to Rip Curl Malaysia, I was there for 4 days 3 nights to see the event up close, getting know to the surfers and to learn how to surf! 

 On the first day of the event, each of us are given a bag of goodies. We are given 2 limited edition Rip Curl T-shirt, cap, pouch and favourite Sunplay Super Block SPF130 PA+++ in cute travel size! 
Yes we must always apply sunblock especially when we are at the beach unless you want to expose yourself the risk of having skin cancer... no joking!

The weather was cloudy most of the time, and rain ocassionally as it is the monsoon season now. And this is the best season for the surfer to surf because they need the waves! 

Although I love the long beach at Pantai Batu Burok but it is not suitable for swimming due to the strong waves all year long!

At the event, there are various booths set up for the participants & public to shop & enjoy cheap foot reflexology at RM20.

Of course I did not miss out the chance to shop with the vouchers given by Rip Curl! I even have orders from my friends via FB in KL to get them some sandals as it was on 30% off!

Besides that Fanta who was one of the co-sponsored gave out unlimited Fanta drinks to participants & members of media! It was perfect during sunny day to quench our thrist and I think I have so much that I dont remember how mant tins I have...Ops!

Best of all, I can have free flow of Ice cream thanks to Nestle Drumstick who are also one of the co-sponsored for the event! Love their Almond Thrill Drumstick, it was so good!

At the event also I managed to witness how a surfboard is made!

Do you know surf board should be made according our body weight & height so that we could balance ourselves on it! 

Meet Laura the surf board artist, she is not only pretty but very talented! I have a little chat with her and found out that she is from Germany and is an interior designer, and her husband is one of the participant in this competition.

 Check out some of her cute drawing which she drawn on surf board and it was printed into postcards to give out as souvenir at the event.

Well I met her at the hotel lobby later on and she personally draw my cap and signed it! 

Looked who is behind secretly waiting... Daniel from room8five

So back to the w competition, there are participations coming all the way from Japan, Brazil , Taiwan, Indonesia ..etc to join this Malaysia's first 6 stars Pro Surfing Contest which was sanctioned by the Asian Surfing Championship (ASC)! 

 Whistl blowed off to officiate the opening of the event!

And all participations is eyeing to win RM 40,000 (over $12,000 USD) worth of prizes in Men’s Open, Women’s Open, Master Division and Bodyboard Open, and Longboard Open

 Some of the shots I have taken..
OMG look at the surfer's action!

One of my favourite shot, how I wish I have longers zoom lens! 


Looks easy, it ain't easy people!

I was rooting for Brenda but she did not make it through semi finals... :( I guess the right waves did not come in time for her! Well only after I learn how to surf I knew that besides skill, luck also plays a part when comes to surfing.

Besides looking at the participants surfing, I also did not miss the chance to register myself at the Surf Clinic
Jonni Morrison-Deaker, from the Rip Curl Bali Surf School is the instructor of the day!

We got to learn on the beach first how to hold the position and balance before we can actualy go to the sea to try. The position in the picture is called chicken wings where you put you both hands near to chest while lying on your front.

I also went and try eventhough I was afraid of the sea... but I was telling myself I could not miss this chance! And I glad I did try it out eventhough I swallow so much of the sea salt water!
I am doing this right! Hehehe notice how I closed my mouth tighyly.. hehe this is after several times falling into the sea & drank the salty sea water!

After the chicken wings position, we have to quickly jump up to a "ninja turtle" position and balance it. To speed of the surf board, you need to lowered down your body.

I only managed to get on my feet in time 1 or 2 time and then my right ankle gave away after I started to feel the pain ( sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago!) And I have bruises on my knee from falling down the surfboard..

 Rebecca was really good, she managed to stand so many times! 

 A picture of myself with Jonni. Thumb up to him becaus he was so patience and encouraging, every time I fell down! Thumb up to Rip Curl Malaysia for inviting him over because he is so awesome and I got hook of surfing and went for 2nd time the next day!

 Beach boys!

During times we are not surfing, we are just lying on the beach relaxing while waiting for the competition to resume.
