i-Love to RUN!


Woo hoo… Presenting… Team ORSUM!!!!!

We participated in a race, i-Love to RUN, that was hugely inspired by the popular Korean variety show, Running Man! It was put together by i-Weekly and everyone had a lot of fun running, playing and hiding!!

We had to complete many tasks and then eventually solve the final code to win the race. While searching for clues to the final code, we had to hide from the ‘hunters’ who were roaming the whole shopping mall. Not easy at all.

My favourite task would have to be the ‘The Longest Breathe’!


I had to shout ‘i ~~~~~~~’ and hold it there while the rest ran one round picking up i-Weekly magazines. Amazingly, I managed to last until they completed the round and we completed the task with one attempt!

Even though we didn’t win, we had a lot of fun and we got to mingle with athletes from Team Singapore! I am already looking forward to next year’s edition of i-Love to RUN!!!

I was lucky enough to be selected for the inaugural edition of the ‘I WAS THERE’ by Samsung Mobile Singapore. I spent an evening at the BistroBar by Da Paolo, enjoyed the food and played with the latest offering by Samsung Mobile Singapore, ie the Samsung Galaxy Camera!

The Samsung Galaxy Camera has a 4.8” touch screen and it operates on the Android Jellybean 4.1.1. Yes, you hear right, it operates on the latest version of the Android OS. It is even possible to connect via 3G or Wifi and then upload the photos straight away to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!

And the camera comes with many special modes and my favourite one got to be the ‘BEST FACE’. When this mode is selected, the camera takes 5 photos and then you can select the best picture of each person and then merge them into one photo. That simply means that, we don’t have to worry about unglam photos where people closed their eyes at that click of the camera.

I am actually thinking of getting this camera for my trip to Japan, Cambodia and Thailand. The special modes seem to satisfy my requirements and take the kind of photos that I like. Oh and the 21x optical zoom is pretty amazing and I can take clear photos from a distance away. Cool, huh.
