Doubletree By Hilton 'Ground Tour'

The vibe has been widely spread all over Twitter, Facebook and across Klang Valley. It was like an epidemic but with good disease discovered. Everyone get addicted to earn themselves a room stay or at least a chance to dine in at their famous Makan Kitchen. Yes!!..if you're already infected, by now you should know what I'm referring to. It is none other than the DoubleTree by Hilton 1st Birthday Bash giveaway. The cute mascot cookie walking around KL city with their dance crew are pretty hype up. Finally I managed to catch up with them earlier today at Sg. Wang. Surprisingly there wasn't much crowd like what I have seen from the pictures for other locations.  But it was still happening!
Walk of Fame
Let's stalk Doubletree mascot
They started with an energetic dance routine from Jennifer Lopez latest single "Dance on the floor", followed by David Gueta "Love is Gone" and last but not least the Birthday jingle that lasts for almost close to 5 minutes. I'll try to upload the video later as the line are pretty slow at this moment.
Pom Pom and dance music burst with delight at the entrance of Sg Wang Plaza
They were searching for Doubletree cookie mascot
What an entertaining treat for all of us here today!
Finally it arrived
Dance cookie dance
Cutey! Happy 1st Birthday!
After the dance routine ended, the dance crew coming walking around and passing the warm chocolate chip cookies packaged to the public. Then they advise us to make a line before asking question based on DoubleTree and then you will received either room stays or makan kitchen buffet voucher. Simple as that!
The Line..pretty surprise as I was expecting it will be crowed
Don't worry I have another 11 vouchers to be given away
The signature chocolate chip cookies..yummy
Awesome bunch of people
The dance crew were energetic, enthusiastic, entertaining and friendly. Thumbs up for the great job guyz!
Makan Kitchen voucher
So yeah I got myself the makan kitchen voucher.Woots! The room stay I got it from twitter contest on the first day itself..:P Now I can plan to have another chill weekend stay soon at this really cool hotel. Stayed here before for the EPL Masters Footballers few months ago, you may check it out HERE. Be sure to 'like' them in FACEBOOK or follow them at TWITTER to win some of the goodies yourself or you can even give it away to your family/friends. As the Birthday Bash giveaway will be until 5 August 2011, make sure you don't miss this awesome treat. And before I forget, HAPPY 1st Birthday Doubletree!

Saya cabar Mamak

AAAhhhhh...apa macam ada berani? ramai yang telah menghantar video mereka untuk mencuba nasib memenangi hadiah wang tunai.. mcm mcm lagak ada. Rasa macam best je, jadi saya pun cuba untuk menyahut cabaran mamak ini dengan memusingkan bola sambil menyebut skrip yang diberi dengan laju, terang dan lancar.

Jadi, untuk menguji tahap konsentrasi serta menyahut cabaran tersebut, saya pun rakamkan video ini.

Link dia kat sini SAYA CABAR MAMAK

nampak senang je kan? tapi ambik masa hampir 2 jam jugak lah untuk latih skrip sambil pusingkan bola. bab pusingkan bola tu sebenarnya 'bakat terpendam' ..chewah. Bukan apa, masa itu, gara gara World Cup, arwah nenek kebetulan memang minat bola. Sebenarnya arwah nenek lah yang 'melatih' saya. Setiap hari praktis ..sampai lenguh jari dan pergelangan..Tetapi apa pun kenangan bersama arwah nenek memang terBEST..sebab banyak benda lagi yang beliau ajar terutamanya aktiviti masuk hutan, pancing ikan dan kegiatan BRUTAL yang sewaktu dengannya. 

ok sekian untuk santapan petang rabu. bukan nak suruh korang vote pun, sebab i memang dah anti dengan contest vote/likes ni, saya join sebab suka cabaran tu. Dan macam Dyat cakap, peluang tipis takpe, asalkan dah usaha.. Ada seminggu lagi sebelum tamat peraduan..kalau rasa nak cabar mamak tu, tunggu apa lagi?

Laser Tag TOPSHOT Challenge at Awana Genting (Astrolife)

Hey everyone!. have you guyz heard about laser tag before? Or indulge in this fun activity at least? Some of you might tried the indoor laser tag in Midvalley but the one that I am about to introduce is something bigger, louder & more drama..LOL..okok the Outdoor Laser tag very much remind me of a paintball field only that you would not be going home bruised from the paintball attack unless you hurt yourself during the game. They have all the bunkers and their machine (heavy I must add) and a laser button that are strap nicely on your forehead. You have to aim your opponent and bear in mind that you could reload your 'bullets' just by pressing a button on your machine as long you are still 'alive'. The wireless sensor to gun connections and able to shoot up to 250 meters under direct Malaysian sunlight!

Well, thanks to Astrolife, I had the chance to be in the running with 3 others to form a team for a thrilling, "strenuous" yet fun game of outdoor laser tag at Awana Genting. The event that supposed to start at 730am but we arrived late and well the event haven't started either. :P even though we woke up very early that Saturday morning. Dad drives us there and upon registration we received the awesome goodie bag consist of a Backpack, towel, cap, tumbler, lanyard tag and some snacks to stuff us before the race.  The rest of it, enjoy the photos.

Dinner with Samantha Brown (TLC Travel Goddess)

So I was not only get to stay at 5 stars Hilton, but I was also given the chance to meet someone that I've been watching only on tv all these years. Yes i grew loving her show and her bubbly personality while she explores the world almost 230 days a year!
The anticipating is running high as I am so eager and anxious to meet TLC most lovable Travel Goddess, Samantha Brown! The dinner supposed to start at 7pm, but oh well i have no idea why does this so called 'VIP' need to come late..if you blame it to the traffic, then why did we have public transport like the Monorail/PUTRA LRT/STARLRT or even the KTM located just a stone away from Hilton KL? like Duh? All of us here just want to meet Samantha Brown! Anyway since I'm staying in Hilton, I was there early and managed to catch up with other winners and invited bloggers like Tian Chad, Yi Wern and Helenness.
cant wait to meet her in person
Joey G was the MC for the dinner event and he was trying his level best to keep everyone awake while waiting. :P Finally managed to meet Connie Lim, Marketing Manager of Discovery Networks Asia Pacific and the rest of the management from Compass Communications. Really friendly people! Great that they provide a Polaroid session where we get to dress and pose for photos with the signature props from all around Asia.

Polaroid is the IN thing now..nice photo frame :)
 And as the clock strike 815pm, finally Joey G announced that the event will be starting and he called up Samantha name before the door was open and taddaaaaaaaa

She really look so lovely in that pink sari and her accessories matches her skin tone.11 years of hosting as I watch her globe trotting on tv and finally meeting her in person was like surreal. After some brief introduction, there were slide show on her upcoming new show, Samantha Brown Asia premiering on 25 July 2011 at Channel 707 (Astro). be sure to catch up coz you might just wanna jet on a plane and venture to this beautiful Asia countries after watching them. Shortly after, dinner were served. The meals consist of distinctive series of delicious food from all around Asia that includes Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Vietnam, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Macau. The mini egg tart and the soft shell chili crab was to die for..yummylicious!
After the 3rd course meal, Samantha came to each tables and there where we had chance to meet/chat/HUG/photo/autograph and share some travelling memories. Priceless!
She got my name spelt wrong but quick to amend it with a sorry nice of you Sam!
She look super tall
Ronnie, Sam and I. the same pink colour..hehehe
She is such an inspiring person and I actually asked whether is this her dream job since she was young. She actually told me, it was a dream job that she never dream off. Yes, she never thought about it but one thing lead to another and as TLC were opening for auditions, she just went for it and score! Since then, no turning back. She loves meeting people, very down to earth, humble and yup ..with great sense of humor too. One advise she gave me, anything can happen when we dare to dream. Her warm hug just made my day! Awwwwww...:) She really look good in person and as if she doesn't age at ALL!. Later she showed us some photos through a slide show of all the Asian countries and she loves the most was Cambodia! The hard life of the people there doesn't deter their hospitality and of course the magnificent Angkor Wat simply amaze her. 

Finally after dinner, had a chance to take picture with the MC, Joey G. (notable Dj /host in clubs and events) Such a humble guy too.
spontaneous and humble he is.
