The Secret Shooting

If you’ve been following my Instagram, you know a month ago I was in some secret location doing some secret filming.

Well, all is revealed today!

It’s for the brand new Toshiba Portégé Z830 Ultrabook.

us 8 bloggers + 1 emcee (in brown)

The production crew rented this really fancy house out of town and we spent the whole day there competing with each other (8 bloggers, from Singapore and Malaysia) in various challenges. The winner will get points that will lead up to a super grand prize which I can only HOPE to win.

The treasure hunt room

My favourite challenge was the treasure hunt where we entered into this room where eight Toshiba Portégé Z830 Ultrabook were hidden all over the room, normally in the most unpredictable places, i.e. between newspaper o.O?

It goes to show just how thin the Ultrabook is! The hidden Ultrabooks totally caught me by surprise amidst the pressure of finding them.

Here are the videos:

Ep1 - Treasure Hunt

Ep2 – Ping Pong

We did a lot of funny things like playing ping pong with the Toshiba Portégé Z830 Ultrabook. Which I thought was going to be difficult to do, but found the Ultrabooks surprisingly light to hold, even to swing in action. Afterall, it is only 1.12kg. And made from Magnesium alloy with a honeycomb rib structure *tough*.

Look at my ‘gaya’ pose and hair. Lol
Though didn’t make it any more difficult since it’s still not a proper bat.
(I’m just finding excuse since I lost)

This was useful especially when I brought the Toshiba Portégé Z830 Ultrabook to India, I hardly felt any burden carrying it around with me, on the car, on the plane, which was always the case with laptops when I travel.

Btw, did I mention I was so clumsy that I forgot to bring any clothes to change for the shoot (which I was supposed to) so throughout the whole day I was practically in the same top.

Malaysia VS Singapore (Aaron, Beatrice, me, Velda)

Thank god the Singapore bloggers were so nice to lend me some of their clothes so I could mix and match and even changed a completely different top outfit for one of the challenges. Thank you guys. T_T *kam dong*
