After such a long period of inactivity on my blog, I'm BACK!
Been busy beyond words. It's really a hectic season with work and commitments, but 2 Saturdays ago, on the 6th of July, I made time to go out of my busy schedule to have some fun under the sun!
As you might have seen from my Instagram and Facebook updates, I was one of the bloggers and socialites invited to take part in the Celcom 4G LTE Blogger Race at Sunway Lagoon.
It was a bright and sunny day, totally suitable for the race! The sun rays were so strong, then I had to apply a few filters to make my photo pop. Else, the photo would have looked 'hazed' :')
Met many familiar faces there!
The pretty model and actress, Jenvine Ong!
Weena, Jenvine and I.
Fellow bloggers and friends- Kate, Stephanie and Li Sha.
I've never seen SO MANY photographers and videographers covering one event. Altogether, there were about close to 3-4 photographers, and 4-5 videographers who were hired to cover the race. Which was amazing, because in the end we got photos like these!
Candid shots! I looked chubby but oh wells :')
So yes, we arrived Sunway Lagoon at 9.30am, and mingled and talked and talked with each other til the briefing time. Oh, local actors Igram Dinzly, Kamal Adli, Along Cham and Ezzrin Loy were in one of the teams too!
We were literally laughing and laughing the whole day cos the emcee was funny, the person-in-charge to brief us was funny, and the challenges that we had to go through were also funny because we sucked at them. Hahaha more photos about that later :P
We were divided into 5 teams of 5, and this photo was taken when we grouped ourselves together. Hahaha!
Sticking together like glue cos we wanted to be in the same team :P
Meet Team White!
Our chant: "Who Run the World? Girls!" ;)
See? Laughing again. Hahaha it was really a day where we just let our hair down and had crazy fun. Nevertheless, we were there to win of course! Winners get to take home a brand new Sony Xperia Tablet Z, so we were pretty serious about trying our bestest to win. Hehe
And the race officially started! Look at all our stressed out faces.
There were altogether 7 challenges that we had to go through, but we only managed to complete 4. Hehehe let me walk you through all the 4 challenges that we did.
Clues clues clues. They were really not that easy to figure out!
The first challenge that we did was kayaking! It was my first time kayaking, and I don't think I need to tell you for you to know how "good" I was at it.
We had to kayak in an 8 figure and return back. I THINK we managed to do an 8 figure. I think...hahaha
Couldn't help but laugh at myself the whole time. Koyakz kayakz!
After kayaking at Extreme Park, we ran all the way to the other side for the Dunk Machine!
Li Sha was our sacrifice, because she wore full swimwear beneath her clothes, and she wasn't afraid. Hehe
Jenvine had 3 chances to throw the ball to the target, but we failed. So we had to be punished to move on to the next level.
Punishment: Duck Walk :')
After running so much, doing a Duck Walk was near impossible okay! Especially when you couldn't stop laughing at yourself :'))
A word of advice: Never laugh and do Duck Walk at the same time. Your knees will go jelly way faster and you would have difficulty walking normally thereafter :')
After they were done laughing at our plight, they gave us the pass to move on to the next level, baybeh!
Next challenge: Flying Fox!
If you've been to Sunway Lagoon before, you would know that in order to do a Flying Fox, one would be required to climb 1,028,309, 278, 349 flights of stairs. Dah lah our legs were jelly from the Duck Walk :')
The lovely Jhxia did the Flying Fox on behalf of Team White! Brave!!! Woohoo!
Long story short, we made it!
Next Challenge: ATV
This one was a challenge. The queue was FOREVER long because it's a really popular attraction, and also because each round takes approximately 15 minutes to complete! Soooooo, we tried using our female charms to convince the people lining up to let us go before them, as we were in a competition.
Most of the guys (AND girls) allowed us to go first, justtttttt.....this uncle here.
Look at all the puppy faces. No, means no, ladies and gentlemen. We tried our bestest, but to no avail. Alas, we gave up and queued up for more than 20 mins until our turns ;')
Finalleh, we went through the ATV challenge which was really fun! Wish the route was rougher though ;)
When we were done with the ATV, the time was up, so we headed back to our exclusive Celcom air-conditioned room. We didn't get to complete the remaining 3, which were Vuvuzula, Water Obstacle and Waterplexx 5D. Wish we managed to though...cos it looked like a lot of fun looking at these photos of other teams enjoying these rides!
Gotta try this out soon!
Knowing that we wouldn't win with just 4/7 challenges completed, the only thing we looked forward to when we were walking back were 1) Cold Water, 2) Air-cond, 3) FOODDDDDDD.
The results were announced, and Team Black, White, and Purple got into the Top 3!
Initially we didn't think there was much to celebrate about as only ONE winning team would walk away with the grand prize of Sony Xperia Tablet Z.
HOWEVER, *jeng jeng jeng* there was a surprise Bonus Round!
All 3 teams were given clues to look for different specific individuals sitting on the surf beach, who held on to the waterproof Sony Xperia Tablet Z underwater.
Ours was to look for a short hair female wearing shorts sitting in the water holding the Sony Xperia Tablet Z. Once we read our clues, we split ourselves and quickly RANNNNNN like our butts were on fire!
We searched the whole surf beach for that oneeee individual, and after many times of approaching the wrong people, I finally found the target and immediately screamed my lungs out to the rest of my team mates! They were running like crazy!
Spot me and our 'target' at the background :P
We gave her our clues, collected the Sony Xperia Tablet Z and RANNNNNNN back to the stage!
Hahahahahaha can't stop laughing at this picture! I was too gan jeong to bother about looking decent.
Run, Jenvine, run!
All of us quickly got ourselves to the stage, and waited for the announcement from the emcee. Who would have thought......
.....that we WON!!!
Hahahaha check out all of our faces! Pure joy there!
It was so emotional......we really thought we wouldn't have won :')))))
More epic expressions!
After running and laughing and cheering so hard the entire time, my legs were really jelly which caused me to collapse to the ground. And guess what? They caught it in pictures! Hahahhaha
...and flat on the floor!
After we sat on the stage, we couldn't get up anymore. Energy quota of the day was used up entirely :')
So we sat on the ground to take our winning photos!
Look at those smiles!
I hardly ever won any races that I participated in, so I will never forget this feeling, EVER!
After celebrating our victory, we were straight away given our prizes!
Yes, I wasn't kidding when I said each member of the winning team walks away with a brand new waterproof Sony Xperia Tablet Z! Thank you Celcom for the generosity! :')

Alright back to the event!
This was our sumptuous buffet lunch. After all the running around and feeling exhausted, these yummy foods really made our day :)
Though it was two Saturdays ago, I still feel the joy and excitement whenever I look back at these pics. Most of all, it was because we had a united team that worked together really well! Truly enjoyed being in Team White together-gether :)
Big group picture!
All the female participants.
MHB Bloggers and Tim!
Here are the summary videos captured by the pros! So shy to see myself running around like a chicken and being all kiasu all :')
And that wraps up a wonderful day at the Celcom 4G LTE Blogger Race :)
