Nokia Comes With Music Launch Party LIVE!

Coming to you from Ratianda! Sabrina will take you back to how and where it all began! (This is my side of the story - there's more involved than I may know of)

Trust me, I know there's more involved here than I've seen but I'm glad to be a part of this outstanding ABSOLUTELY CRAZY event!! It's HIP! It's HAPPENING! It's SiZZlinG HOT!! Let me bring you live experience from my point of view! (Ps. My first live concert and I'm already involved in the makings~!)

Once upon a time.......
First and foremost, I feel bad to those who had to wait in the rain but IT IS NOT OURS to be blamed upon! We DO NOT PREDICT THE WEATHER... We had it WORST THAN YOU! We've been working our ARSE OFF just for you guys and all SOME of you do is Stand & Wait, Faint & then Complain for only HALF the DAY! We said 7.30PM SHARP, it is on your own "choice" to be there as early as 9AM?!?!?!?! The ballots were out accordingly on time. There were few customers that managed to get the device even before the event started because they bought 5800 Xpress Music with us and through their Authorised registered warranty, they were randomly selected via phone call to get the X6 for FREE! You want stuff like this? Support Authorized sets, the benefits are all there! Do not blame us, seriously... Gosh...
(Don't complain to me, I do not own this event and I'm not part of the team that seemed to mess up (in your eyes only) okay! I personally felt everyone did their best and NOBODY IS PERFECT, Get A GRIP!)

Okay enough ranting... SO here goes...
The tough days! We've spent hours working our sweats off just to make this a great event JUST FOR YOU! We ain't complainin' (yes... very tiring) because we know what's best for everyone! The fun! The excitement! Fills the air with MUSIC! That's the key!... So here's some shots from me and my fellow colleagues! Before the event even began!




What do you think? "A picture is worth a thousand words", believe me... I have more than a thousand pictures and I only selected few. Words could not FIT IN TODAY'S EVENT! Feelings are more like it! Here's the start of the event!




The crowd was C.R.A.Z.Y!!!!!! Honestly, the crowd "FREAKED" us out! Oh man! We had to put up an invincible shield from YOU GUYS! Well, I do love it when the event announcer gave a loud stern "shouting" to ask the crowd to BEHAVE! or the tickets for X6 = RM66 lucky draw will be CANCELLED! You guys broke the entrance door!! We had to call for backup from our teams on standby to hold the door from inside alongside with the Police enforcements (more like green army police type-or whatever you call them). We feared you guys will go WILD, which you've managed to at the entrance...




Sorry, no pictures from Aizat or 6ixth Sense... Was busy explaining X6 & N97 Mini -Comes With Music to customers, not to mention we were fully booked to provide a full Comes With Music guidance to some of our lucky recipients who got the X6 for RM66. Btw, I was guiding a customer with his new X6 and his friends were next to me listening when suddenly the 2nd round showed up and one of his friend got lucky too! He kept saying I brought him luck (~hmm...pondering)

Finally! THE GROUP YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!!!!!! BOYS LIKE GIRLS! The crowd LOVE THEM! I used to like their songs and all but seeing them perform CLOSE-UP & LIVE! I'm in ~luurrrvveee... Lolx...





At the end of the day... You guys left at 11pm I'd reckoned... The Police enforcers kicked you out lolx (almost)... But they were telling people the doors are closing. Reasons? LOOK AT THE MESS YOU'VE MADE for US! Noooo!!! Lucky we had people to volunteer to clean up (not me)... It could take the WHOLE DAY... Jeeeeezzz....



Thanks to EVERYONE who'd turned up! I know of a few, @Kellaw (really really really sorry to hear about your device =< ) ; I really couldn't name them all because I've seen familiar faces around that I've seen in Nuffnang & on blogs. @DanevO thanks for helping out! Saw you help cleaning up (a lil) after the event (if I'm not mistaken hehe)...

My 2nd Website!

I've done it again! This time with major help from WiX.com! Amazing! It took me weeks but I could've finished it earlier if it weren't for my work reports that keeps accumulating everyday.

But tada~!...


This site is "almost" all about me! There's still much to work on though but atleast it's ready to be out there already. It'll be updating every now and then, when I want and when I can.

So what are you waiting for! Check it out! About Sabrina of Ratianda


(Ps. Lower the speaker volume on the "Music" page if you don't want to get noised out by my voice singing songs... Not the most decent stuff on earth but it's the best I've done and will strive to improve... It's a hobby anyway...)

Samsung Corby - Color Me Carnival!

Hey Guys! We're gonna kick-start 2010 with a special event by Samsung Corby - Color Me Carnival! In-conjunction with Samsung Fun Club, NuffNang, Square Roots, Metafilm, St. John Ambulance & Sunway Lagoon! (There's probably more involved here) Let the games begin! (more like me story-telling it... lolx)

First and foremost, "THANK YOU SAMSUNG & NUFFNANG!" I was shortlisted to be here and this my first and more amazing event that I had fun at. Although I kept to myself most times (super shy) I still made new friends along the way and there's just so much more than just fun & games!

I had to reach at 9.30am SHARP according to the invitation via email. We had to queue to register ourselves. The crowd was "W.O.W"......... 25 participants shortlisted from Samsung Fun Club & 75 NuffNang Bloggers! I won't be surprise if there's more! (it's what I've heard from my friend)





Once we're in Sunway Lagoon Extreme Park, we headed off to grab some seats and our favourite (my favourite!) "Emcee of the Day - Liang" started off with an exciting welcome and our very own Samsung Malaysia Electronics (SME) Sdn. Bhd.'s Marketing Manager, Mr. Sam Chen gave his first speech to kick-start the event!

Our 1st game! 18sg.... Not for the faint-hearted....... Called "Stomp The Yard"
The goal is to step on the other team players balloon as much as possible until the last one standing wins the team! Very brutal game but fun and exciting! (Funny too... ha ha ha)
  




Great game! Amazing teamwork!
Winners as follow : Orange, Pink, Yellow, White

The 2nd game! 18sx.... Try not to get wet or wear extra cover ups later.... Called "Tug-O-War"
The goal is not to slip and fall or vice versa! Pull the rope and win! Simple but tough... It's in the water!!! 





Great teamwork again! Nice strategy... 
Winners as follow : Orange, Pink, White, Yellow 
(Ps. I'm starting to lose concentration here - might've been wrong order, correctly me please... hehe...)


 The 3rd game! "Rock Climbing"... It is nooooooooottt easy!
At first, the goal is to grab as much balloons as we can (same color as team color) one team member at a time. It become almost like a handicapped match... Pink and Yellow's rock climbing walls were tougher than Orange and White...Because of this, our kind-hearted Samsung Event guy (sorry don't know the name), gave us a chance to replay the game and this time, climb anywhere we want but make sure we touch the top and shout 'Corby' before we come back down!





Very strong moral booster from each teams! Not much teamwork seen here except for extra motivations and supporters shouting at their teammates to climb, climb and climb!
Winners as follow : Yellow, White, Orange, Pink
(Oh man! I'm not sure if White and Orange has been mixed up.... Oops!)


The 4th and Final game! 18sg... Yes, brutal... "Paintball"
The goal, each team split into 2 teams of 5 members. Each team against the others must get the flag in the center without getting hit; Before, During & After - getting the flag!.... I must admit, very very tough but worth the experience!





Everyone, great sport~!
Winners as follow : Orange, Yellow, Pink, White
(Did I get this right????)

On my personal experience during the times when I was not participating... I had my other fun watching and playing 1 or 2 other games nearby... Lolx... (I missed out dearly on the sweeeeeet "flying fox"...sobs...)





The Finale Of The Day!
Fooooooooooooooooooooooooddd~! Deeeessseeerrrttsss~!.... Yum... Yum...
Time for the awards!






We had permission to play anything we want at Sunway Lagoon Extreme Park because we have the tags around our wrists. But I had to go back and I want a shower soooo bad! Plus, I had my fun and I'm remembering it my entire life!

Finally, a great big warm wonderful THANK YOU to Samsung, Samsung Fun Club, Nuffnang, Nuffnangers (you-know-who-you-are), bloggers and everyone at the event.
Thank You Samsung for making my day "Oh-So-Colorful". It has been 11years since I last went to a "Theme Park"! Thank you, thank you, thank you.......

Conclusion : Pink team probably got 3rd or 4th place but who cares! Everyone's a winner today! Look at the goodies they gave us already! Plus, we've gained friends we've never met before (I know I did) isn't that the best gift money can't buy?! Priceless!... See ya soon !

Haarlem Up-Close & Personal

Coming to you from Haarlem, our Columnist of Ratianda proudly brings you "Haarlem, Up-Close & Personal".

Firstly, Haarlem had a total population 148 885 in 2009. The municipality of Haarlem also comprises part of the village of Spaarndam, a newer housing estate of this village forms part of the neighbouring municipality of Haarlemmerliede en Spaarnwoude.

The city is located on the river Spaarne, about 20 km west of Amsterdam and near the coastal dunes. It has been the historical center of the tulip bulb-growing district for centuries and bears the nickname 'Bloemenstad' (flower city), for this reason.

How it began?
The oldest mentioning of Haarlem dates from the 10th century. The name comes from "Haarlo-heim" or "Harulahem", which means 'place, on sand covered with trees, higher than the others'. There was a stream called "De Beek", dug from the peat grounds west of the river Spaarne as a drainage canal. Over the centuries the Beek was turned into an underground canal, as the city grew larger and the space was needed for construction. Over time it began to silt up and in the 19th century it was filled in. The location of the village was a good one: by the river Spaarne, and by a major road going south to north. By the 12th century it was a fortified town, and Haarlem became the residence of the Counts of Holland
.

OKAY! Back to the present... (I know you're getting sleepy, me too... lolx)
The weather is cool but freezing at the same time. It's a very classic, yet, "heavenly" view not to be missed!
Here are some pictures taken next to the River Spaarne in Haarlem (the Northern side of Holland).




Along the river Spaarne,was formerly the Maria Stichting (sort of a foundation), a Roman Catholic Hospital and Childrens Orphanage

Oh! Before I forget, do notice that the river is utterly frozen! People ice skate here too.
There are also boat houses on the river too.





Ooo... Do not miss this! Haarlem's very own friendly neighborhood 24/7. A sight not to be missed!

Would love to shout out a great big "THANK YOU" to our Columnist of Ratianda all the way from The Netherlands!
