Fun @ Sony Playstation Wave Launch !

Playing games on the computer, consoles, arcade machines, can be very fun yet addictive. I always had fun playing with different games across different platforms, although I am not playing much today, due to time constraints and the fear of getting too addicted again 😛

However, when I was invited by T3 Singapore Magazine on behalf of Sony Entertainment Hong Kong, to attend Sony Playstation Wave Launch Event as part of the Singapore Blogging Community. There wasn’t any hesitation from myself and RSVP that I am attending ! On Wednesday 11th August, at Se7en @ Iluma, I registered and entered as Media !!

It was a very fun event, nice refreshments and lots of big Sony TV screens attracting us to start action, trying and playing with the new Sony Playstation Wave ! It was a grand event too, with key management executives from Sony, Mr. Tetsuhiko Yasuda, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Asia, Mr. Katsuhiko Murase, Deputy Managing Director of Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong Limited, and Mr. Norihiro Nishimura, the director of game development for “Time Crisis Razing Storm”, who were here to grace this event and presented to us, the Sony Playstation Wave.

With a big bang, the Sony Playstation Wave was launched and we were given the opportunities to try out the various Sony Playstation Wave games available, with pretty energetic Sony models demonstrating how to use and play with the Sony Playstation Wave (and of course, being my team player in some of the 2 player games 😀 )

Windows 7 arrives in Singapore Event !

Ladies and Gentleman,

Announcing the arrival of Windows 7 to Asia on 22nd October ! A media event was launched to welcome Windows 7 in Singapore and I was invited by Microsoft and Weber Shandwick to attend this wonderful and exciting event. I would like to take this opportunity to say a Big THANK YOU to Microsoft for organising a wonderful media launch event and Weber Shandwick for inviting me to be part of the media launch !

The launch was held at 72-13 Mohd Sultan Road, a great place to launch Windows 7, upon entering inside, it was a great sight to see many different desktops, laptops, notebooks and netbooks, all on display, from various different brands such as Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, iiView, Lenovo, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba, all installed with Windows 7. After my registration and catching up with Ashwin from Weber Shandwick, I began exploring around and started playing with new toys !

Soon after, we were ushered inside to another hall, with people from different forms of media, overseas visitors and partners of Microsoft. After settling down, the master of ceremony, Stephen Forshaw, kick start the launch event, a presentation on the history of Windows before breaking up into groups, visiting 4 different lifestyle segments whereby Windows 7 operates and thrives in.

They were home lifestyle, outdoors, office and games ! Allan Wu, local TV star was in charge of the outdoors segment, while Eunice Olsen, well known actress, was in charge of the home lifestyle segment ! Visiting the 4 different segments, all of us there had a better insight of how Windows 7 fits into your serious business/working life to leisure/outdoor lifestyle, there is something for everyone ! Windows 7 had made a lasting impression on me, great improvements from Vista. I would go further in-depth into Windows 7 soon, some key points and wonderful improvements.

Finally, before leaving from the Windows 7 launch party, there was an awesome gift for us to bring back home, it was a Samsonite messenger bag with Windows 7 logo, containing goodies and guess what ………………………………………………. ……. Windows 7 Ultimate Box !!!!!!!

A Very BIG THANK YOU to Microsoft !!!
