Was modelling for the official launch of ASUS Eee Pad Transformer at GSC Signature, the Gardens yesterday as a featured blogger, together with my dearest Jocelyn Coco. To pose with a product for purposes of display and advertising in front of so many photographers is definitely not easy. And frankly, I think I suck at it. Was constantly worried that I might trip and fall with the tablet and screw up their historical event because I’m clumsy lke that. Luckily it was just for a short while and it went smoothly. However, it was indeed a fun experience! Of course, many thanks to ASUS Malaysia, Alan Yun, Sidney Kan and Camy Ling for having me. =)
