[Event] Astro - Your Malaysian is showing + Go Beyond Positive MeterLaunch ❤

Managed to spend some quality time on last weekend by attending Your Malaysian is Showing + Go Beyond Positive Meter Launch organized by Astro and Nuffnang in the Saturday afternoon.  I was thrilled and excited because it's another bloggers' event from Astro apart of Astro-On-The-Go Live Explorer which was held at Sunway Pyramid months ago. They are the #GoBeyond and #UrMalaysianIsShowing campaigns, as well as the launch of a new music video, entitled “Excuse me Sir, your Malaysian is showing”.

 

Public can also take photos with the props and posted the photos in social media platform and they would receive either passport holder or Astro bag. (: Meanwhile yours truly (which is me) managed to take one photo with the prop and uploaded it in Instagram.

Was there at 2.30 pm sharp and managed to see some of my blogger friends at the event and even took photos with them. (: This event is to celebrate the best of Malaysia through a variety of activities on air, online and on ground to spread positivity and happiness in conjunction with Malaysia’s 56th Independence Day which falls on  this coming Saturday! 
 
Meet my blogger friends, Kelly Chin, JQ Lee, Jeff and yours truly. (P.s: Can you guys notice that the word lenglui at the backdrop? It was just pointing right at my head!! LOL!) 

While waiting for the event to start, I started to look around for friends and took a few shots with them. It's kinda fun especially you got to meet all of them at once in such a wonderful event. (: 

Meet Anne from Nuffnang. She is a super friendly and nice girl I tell you. (:

Meet Kelly from sunshinekelly.com whom I know from few events back then. Thank you for being a big sister to me each time we attended events together! (:

Meet Tian Chad from tianchad.com. He could still remember my name even though we met each other for the third time only. Thank you so much! (:

Here's the hosts of the day. They were smiling at my camera! :D 

They were many artists who attended the launch that day and they were Lisa Surihani, Dato' Haji Aznil Nawawi,Geraldine Gan, Jie Ying, Revathy, Lingkesh. Mr Henry Tan, the Chief Operating of Astro was there to launch the #GoBeyond campaign and positive engine which is the first of its kind that features Malaysian landmarks and is housed in the 3rd floor in Mid Valley Megamall for all to see.

During the speech, Mr Henry Tan said “This year, our Merdeka Campaign revolves around celebrating our uniqueness as Malaysians and encouraging everyone to do something positive to put a smile on the faces of others. We invite everyone to participate in our #gobeyond campaign and tell us about it on social media with the #gobeyond hashtag. Your positive action can be helping someone in need or even writing an inspiring message, which will trigger the Positive Engine. Every positive act will be tabulated. To date, we have received over 140,000 positive contributions and we are aiming to exceed the million mark."

These were the artists who attended that day. (:

To those who do not know what is positive engine all about, you can always check it out at the 3rd floor at Midvalley alright? Here's the photo of the positive engine. (:

Introducing the Positive Engine!


Astro celebrates the best of 1Malaysia and our Malaysianess by recognising our unique lingo such as Syok!, Gostan, Brudder, Fuyoh, Macha, understood only by fellow Malaysians. Everyone can be a part of this and own their favourite lingo on a T-shirt via the #UrMalaysianIsShowing Facebook app. Proceeds from the sale will contribute towards a charitable cause.

Now that the launch was over, Nuffnangers and Churpers would be starting the bloggers event shortly. I was put under the Team 6 and there were 15 groups altogether. I was feeling excited about this event because I was really curious about how this event will work when it required us to tweet and Instagram during the whole event. *hmm*  


All the bloggers getting ready to start the event. (:

Two teams would have one Marshal where the marshal would give us the list of tasks and a bag of stuffs that would be used in the game later on. The Marshal for Team 5 and 6 would be Charissa. 

Meet my team mate, Hafiz, Liyana, Cik Lily Putih and I. 

Each of us were given t-shirts according to the team with different captions and colours. (:We were surprised when we received the tasks because there were 27 TASKS ALTOGETHER! How were we going to finish all the tasks? *sigh*


Thank god Cik Lily Putih was in my team and she distributed the task into two groups. Hafiz and I were in a team completing the tasks from number 15 till 27. Basically, Hafiz and I were told to upload 3 videos in Instagram and 14 photos  in Twitter using Twitpic. In addition, each photos or videos uploaded in Instagram or Twitter were required to add in hashtags of #UrMalaysianIsShowing and #GoBeyond and tag @NuffnangMY.

Below are some of the tasks that we had to complete that day. 

Task: Tag a friend in Twitter and compliment him/her.

Task: Offer a stranger/passerby a cup of mineral water.

Task: Offer a passerby a sunflower.

Task: Hi-5 to your new friend.

Task: Give a passerby a hug.

Task: Most patriotic pose with Malaysian flag. 

We faced some problems during the event. I could not upload a single photos in my Twitter at all. The connection in Midvalley must be pretty bad. =.= Thank god Cik Lily Putih brought her portable internet broadband along with her and we managed to finish our tasks on time! Thank you Kak Lily! (: While waiting for the judges to calculate the numbers of tasks that had been completed, we were ushered to Blu Med to have some light refreshments.


Shah invited Lisa to come forward to present the cash to the winners.

The first winner was Team 15 which they managed to complete all the tasks given and followed by my team 6!! Yoohoo!~~~ I did not expect to win at all. I must really thank Kak Lily for her portable internet broadband or else we could not have finished some of our tasks so fast. (:

The Grand Winner who walked away with RM600 cash!

Team 6 who walked away with RM400! 

Congratulations to Jeff's team for bagging the 3rd prize which is RM200! Congrats to all the teams!! (: 

Jeff's team. 

Before I forgot, to those who did not attend the event that day, fret not. You can always go to  https://www.facebook.com/AstroGoBeyond/app_179047725597311 to take part of the Positivity campaign.



I have joined mine and how about you? #GoBeyond

Other than that, you can also design your own tee to join this unique lingo which can only be understand by our fellow Malaysians. I have already designed mine and I guess the caption would suit me a lot. :P Heheh.


Last but not least, a music video aptly titled “Excuse me Sir, your Malaysian is showing” which is uploaded by Astro Malaysia can be watched as below:
