My motto in life has always been to try everything ONCE. Even if you don't like it, at least I tried it ONCE.
And suffice to say, I've never been stuck in a glass cell for 8 hours straight in the middle of Mid Valley on a Saturday, where hundreds of zoo-goers... er... I mean, shoppers can gawk at me, scrutinize my every move, and watch me pick my nose. So I just HAD to try it ONCE.
Yup, that's what I'm gonna be going through this Saturday (5th June): from 10am onwards, at Midvalley Megamall,Ground Floor North Court (near Jaya Jusco): I'm gonna be stuck in that little glass cell with three other bloggers - namely Beautiful Nara, Eiling, and Red Mummy.
And what's this all for? It's all for B.YOND!
Oops, sorry, wrong Beyond (Ka Kui we miss youuuuu!)
I meant Astro B.yond PVR (which stands for Personal Video Recorder, BTW). The event is all part of the Astro B.yond PVR roadshow this weekend (which is sponsored by Astro, obviously)
Did you miss the finale of Lost because you were well, lost? Or missed the finale of 24 because you were working 24/7? Or the crowning of a new American Idol because you just didn't care anymore? Well, now you can record them and watch it later!
Personally, I kinda wish they had this back in 2005 when Liverpool won the Champion's League. Then I could have recorded that match, and watched it again and again to overcome the agony of watching them playing like crap this ENTIRE season. (I also wish there was a DELETE function as well, so I can delete all those Justin Bieber music videos on MTV these days; but hey, you can't win them all...)
One of my favorite parts is I can even pause and rewind the TV shows as I watch them. So now if Transformers 2 is on and I want to watch Megan Fox er.. run in slow-motion (and in HIGH DEFINITION!), I can just rewind back that scene as many times as I like! WOOT WOOT HUBBA HUBBA!
Oh, and you can even do it during live football matches! Best feature ever, especially with the World Cup coming up and all...
So now you never have to miss a headbutt or Hand of God moment again! (doesn't allow you to fast-forward to see who won the matches though. Darn. Where's Doc Brown when you need em?)
Anyway, what does all this have to do with me being stuck with three other bloggers in a glass enclosure? Well, besides the chance to make fools out of ourselves, one of us will also get to win the Astro PVR service by doing various tasks during that time.
Unfortunately for me, those tasks will require some participation from my er... blog readers.
Here's where you come in. You see, I'll be up against three bloggers whose daily traffic probably exceeds my WEEKLY traffic; so I'm gonna need all the help I can get.
So if you're free on Saturday, head on over to Mid Valley so you can gawk at the four of us, and hopefully, give me some of your votes so you can help me, this little underdog to BEAT those three other femes bloggers! MUAHAHAHAHA!
PS: There's also going to be a RRPP (Record, Rewind, Pause, Play) Facebook contest, where you guys get to share your personal wish list on what shows or moments YOU would like to Record, Rewind or Pause. Stay tuned for more details on that!
PSS: On that note, for more information on Astro B.yond PVR, go check out www.astro.com.my/byond. Oh, and go join Astro's Facebook page as well... it might have MORE embarrassing pictures of me in that glass cell...
PSSS: BTW, if you have trouble recognizing me, I'll probably be the one in an Optimus Prime helmet. Watudu, I shy mar... hehehe
