Arthur's Day 2010 at Sunway Lagoon, Surf Beach

24th September 2010 - Arthur's Day 2010 happened last Saturday at Sunway Lagoon, Surf Beach. I was invited to attend the Arthur's Day and It was one of the best concert of 2010! Apart from World Stage. I was privileged to get a Media Pass, giving me full access to all areas to cover the event.

Let's check out the line up Performers for Arthur's Day in case you didn't know.

Flo Rida: Two-time Grammy award nominee who received worldwide acclaim and popularity with the chart-topping success of his first single, “Low”. This catchy song won him several awards, which include “Favourite hip hop song” at the People’s Choice Awards in 2009 in the United States, as well as the “Highest selling single” award by the Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards (ARIA Awards). His latest single, “Club can’t handle me now” is also featured in the soundtrack for the blockbuster movie, “Step up 3”.

Sean Kingston: This Jamaican-American singer broke through the music scene with his first album in 2007, self-titled Sean Kingston. His first hit tune, “Beautiful Girls” took Malaysia and the world by storm and he has been producing more chart topping hits ever since.

Colby O’Donis: At a young age, this star was already opening shows for major recording artists including Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync. His latest single with Malaysia’s very own Mizz Nina, titled “What you waiting for?” made its way to the top, and has been a frequent favorite on many radio stations recently.

Thaitanium: Known for bringing in a new era of Thai hip-hop, influencing every genre in the Thai music industry. Comprising of Khan, Day and Way, the Siamese boys have mixed their native Thai language with American hip-hop’s street vocabulary, creating a unique blend of tradition with hip-hop culture.

PopShuvit: PopShuvit came into the local music scene in 2001. The band had successful releases throughout Asia, notably in Japan, Thailand and Singapore. Their adrenaline packed live shows and eclectic blend of hip hop and rock has made them known as Asia’s leading hip-hop rock band. In 2003, PopShuvit was the first Malaysian band to hit the music chart in Japan and Top 20 on the Tower Records sales charts.

Mizz Nina: Hip-Hop cultured Shazrina Azman, better known for her stage name Mizz Nina, is the co-founder of seminal Malaysian hip-hop group, the Teh Tarik Crew in 1999. She also runs her own recording studio and collaborated with many of Malaysia’s leading artists such as Reshmonu and Vandal. Mizz Nina also recently teamed up with American hip-hop artist Colby O’ Donis in her new single “What You Waiting For”, which topped local charts such as the Freaky Fly 30 of FlyFM.

Melissa Indot: This talented singer has recently bagged 2 AVIMAs – the World’s Biggest Independent Music awards in over 20 countries – for having the “Best Collaboration” and the “Best Pop / R&B Song”.

DJ Fuzz: DJ Fuzz began to shine as a member of the Teh Tarik Crew, the groundbreaking hip-hop group which served to cement his presence in the Malaysian hip-hop scene. Currently, DJ Fuzz is also a resident at almost all the major clubs in KL, including Zouk KL, Maison, Laundry and Republic.

With all the line up performers, I bet you will be regretting right now that you've missed Arthur's Day concert.

Sony Digital Imaging Line-Up for 2010 @ Pullman Putrajaya

Sony Digital Imaging Line-Up for 2010 event took place at Pullman Putrajaya! Woots! What are we doing there? Read on to find out.

But before that. Oh hey, It's SONY ALPHA's latest a55!!! Looks pretty ain't it? With the L 70-200mm f2.8.

First of all, their main motive is for us to witness Sony Malaysia revealing a whole new Digital Imaging Line-Up for 2010, which include products from Sony DSLR, Cyber-shot, Handycam & S-Framedigital frame. The event was held at the elegant Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside hotel.

The place is beautifully decorated with Alpha's booth, nice settings! Sony are always good in their events/launching which I personally love to attend.

Press conference with all the media people, Alphanatics and fellow bloggers.

Quite a number of new product lineups especially the NEX-3, NEX-5, A33, A55 and the The Sony NEX-VG10. I didn’t have much time on the hands on though, so I’m sure I have missed out on a number of things.

Alpha models are out displaying the Sony Tx5, Sony S Frame, Sony NEX-VG10 and Sony A55.

Launching of the Sony Camera/Vid Camera products begins!

Our blogger, Nasri Lian was there to try out the Sony NEX-VG10. Doing a comparison with his Canon 550D/T2i.

No introduction on this dude, Joshlim and Cherli.

I forgot her name but she's one of the Alpha model. Posing with the A55.

Obviously, that me with the model.

By the way, the a33 & a55 is LOVE with the price! Entry level DSLR with FULL HD movie with 10fps weyhh.

This is the iPad alike which is called Sony S Frame. Focused on viewing photos and playing videos.

NEX VG-10 Studio for us to hands on.

Bloggers camwhoring session time.

Me and Cherli Chang.

Free prints are provided for us to print out photos which taken on that day itself for remembrance. We did a panorama shot on the A55 and print it out for everyone.

In conclusion, product demonstration with hands-on session for us to experience the full power of Sony Digital Imaging was fun. Comes with a Buka Puasa dinner provided in the end of the event. Pretty much like a VIP for us. We certainly had FUN!

Here's a group shot of us Advertlets people on ground at the Sony Digital Imaging Line-Up event @ Pullman Putrajaya.

Print out photos galore!

Once again, Thanks Sony Malaysia and Advertlets for making this happen. Signing Off!
