Samsung Galaxy Note Studio in Nuvali Sta.Rosa Laguna

Samsung Galaxy Note Studio

Samsung Mobile Philippines had a roadshow of Samsung Galaxy Note Studio last March 3-4, 2012 in Nuvali Sta.Rosa Laguna.  I got an email about the event last week since It’s near my area I’ve drop by and surprisingly it was fun. The Samsung Galaxy Note Studio was set up in an open area where anyone can experience first hand the mobile phone and  tablet in one. The device is connected to internet using WiFi, browsing to some webpages and  social media apps. They even let me installed Mozilla Firefox mobile  from the Android Market that has 14MB size, it can probably handle most apps with large file sizes with it’s 16GB internal memory and expandable external memory up to 32GB in microSD card. Games are very responsive like the fruit ninja slashing in the big screen size, wait I’m not gonna review this phone right now.

A lot of people are trying out the Samsung Galaxy Note which comes in two colors, black and white version. The white looks like the Apple iPhone and I noticed it has the same normal price range at P33, 000  for the 16BG version. Wait and scout for their next tour as they offer discounts, you can have it for only P29,000 brand new of course. A feedback form is given out that also serves as a raffle coupon for a chance to win some cool prizes. So I’m hoping to win a black Samsung Galaxy Note just like anyone else.

The highlight of this event is the S Pen feature that will make illustrator or graphic artist  sketch, draw and paint using the stylus pen. It can output to a monitor in full resolution using HDMI cable, though having it in portrait mode do not display in full-screen.

Here is my illustration/caricature I got after the long wait in line, though it’s not in color like this. the artist will be mad at me if I requested that.

If you’re in the United States catch the Galaxy Note Studio Mall Tour that open on weekends until March 25, 2012 and Experience the Galaxy Note™ first-hand at select malls near you. Look for our Galaxy Note Studios, where you can try out the device, get a free caricature drawn, and enter to win a Galaxy Note Accessory Pack.

Happy 5th Anniversary Nuffnang Philippines

nuffnang5

Last night was the 5th Anniversary celebration of Nuffnang Philippines, we got an invite and joined the party at the Podium Mall in Ortigas. We are late for an hour because of the traffic in EDSA and made it at 8pm, where a lot of people is already at the Borough.

It was a party mode, everybody seems to be busy talking and drinking with a loud music. It took some time to get our drinks and having the vodka sprite sets my mood to party. Squid with popcorn is new to me but definitely worth a try. Raffles and giveaway was at stake, unfortunately we didn’t get any but got this great souvenir photograph in the poseandprint photobooth and I enjoyed our poses here.

I saw the Nuffnang guys again  like Trixie and Denise for the second time after the special screening of  The Social Network with great smile on their faces. The event also serves as our networking night where I saw and greet  Orlee Pasion, one of our Mozilla localization contributor, seeing again in another event is such a happy moment. The mezzanine is not that big but able to accommodate the bloggers and other guests. We also met a new guy from an IT group that  invited us for a speaking engagement every Sunday.

Thank you Nuffnang for inviting us in such a great event and hoping be part on future events.

ABS-CBN Umagang Kay Ganda Studio Tour

Kanina pumunta kami sa ABS-CBN para sa exposure trip ng mga estudyanteng AB Communications,  teka bakit ako nag Tatagalog dito? Pasensya na at nasanay na ata ako dahil sa pagttranslate ng Firefox sa Tagalog. English na ba o Tagalog pa rin ? Tagalog na lng kasi bukas magtranslate ulit kami ng Firefox sa Makati.

Nagsimula ang lahat sa pagtulog ko ng alas 11 ng gabi, ang nakasanayan kong oras ng pagtulog at pagdating ng alas 2 ng madaling araw, gumising para maligo. Esaktong alas 3 nakita ko na paalis ang aming sasakyang bus, salamat naman at nahabol ko pa. Dahil walang trapik sa mga oras na yun ay maagang kaming nakarating sa ABS-CBN at

Teka lng ako ay antok na, bukas na lng ito pagpapatuloy pero andito ang iba pang litrato.

Ituloy ko pa ang kwento?

Nuffnangers First Ever Nuffamily Day

Summer season is about to end but Nuffnang would not want to just end it like any other simple summer goodbyes. They would like to make us feel the summer air with their warm BIG surprise, the Nuffamily Day! The first ever get together of Nuffnang bloggers or Nuffnangers in the Philippines to be held at the Crosswinds, Tagaytay City on May 28 and yes it falls on a Saturday and since I don’t have any work or class on that day, I don’t mind going there to wave summer adieu.

WHY DO I LOVE NUFFNANG?

There are a lot of things I love about Nuffnang, during that time when I joined the Asia Pacific’s First Blog Advertising Community. I was very excited when I tried joining blogging for the first time. Lucky me, when I won movie tickets for the special screening of the must see movie about Facebook which is “The Social Network“. And ohh was I very happy to the movie along with fellow Nuffnang bloggers. The cinema was reserved for us and I felt like I belong with a big family sharing a movie with them.

Nuffnang and PLDT myDSL Special Screening

Along with me are some friends to watch the movie, and even if I had to go all the trouble travelling from South of Luzon did made me think that t’was all worth it for all the fun we had. Taking photos with our camera bringing up our wacky poses really left us laughing most of the time while waiting for the movie to start. We had the chance of meeting Denise Cua and Trixie Esguerra, and little did we know that they were part of the Nuffnang team in the Philippines. Other guys are really busy having chat with other bloggers so we took the best we can to enjoy the event.

I  also had the chance to watch the Pacquiao vs Margarito Fight at Cuneta Astrodome, tickets courtesy of Nuffnang of course. The cool thing is we are on a special seats, a great experience like watching in a real ring side of boxing with all the shouting of the audience.

Winning the PLDT Ultra Broadband Blowout was indeed the best blogging experience I had for a winning blog post. Aside from winning a T-shirt and other minor prize in the raffle is that I also got to bag the major prize, a PLDT modem wifi in one. I’m really thankful to Nuffnang for the contest because I am loving everything about it.

The nuffamily day is surely going to be a big day for me to meet other bloggers and another way to be out of town again. I will surely enjoy the activities like taking photos, lighting the lanterns and wave as it fly in the sky. My family is not with me right now so I will just have to bring with me some friends, Joell Lapitan and Theresa Alvarez. We will take the Nuffbus to avoid any traffic jams. I am also very thankful to all the sponsors for making this event possible. Pizza Hut, The Picasso, Hapee, Bisolvon, Neo, Mister Donut, Skechers, Jollibee, Del Monte, Jack Liner and Jack in Jill.

 

From all the contests and events of nuffnang I also love the advertising spot in my blog. I got to promote local products and services targeted to my Phillippine audience. See you guys!
