What’s your inspiration? What’s your dream?

It’s always cool to have a dream, to have a passion, and to pursue in something that we want to achieve in life. But how many of us actually really do have the courage to pursue in what we like? How many of us will just give up without reaching the final point? We all have dreams, and importantly we have to believe in our self and uncage the passion.

Tiger beer has always been supporting the local talent scene in Malaysia, and this time they gave me this opportunity to be part of the campaign in finding inspiring stories in Malaysia by interviewing real people who have dared and overcame their inhibitions in the name of uncaging their passion. This time, we have Mutha Puaka.

The Tiger Uncage videos are a series of videos showcasing inspiring stories behind some of the local hidden gems of Malaysia, and during the shoot I met two talented crews from Mutha Puaka which are Brian and Eddy. Muatha Puaka is actually a group of people that shares the same passion and interest in riding bikes. Biker scene is not really a common thing in Malaysia especially a group that holds so much passion in it. Don’t think bikes and then relate it to the “Mat Rempits” here because what Muatha Puaka is all about are real interest in bikes and also about having fun and not taking life too seriously. Brian and Eddy added during the interview that it is important to share the same passion with someone and also to hold on to your true value from the beginning.  

What is it about holding on your true value? It totally means that you have to do something that you really like, that really makes you happy. It’s not just about making money sometimes, it’s about creating a legacy. Mutha Puaka designs their own merchandises too which are very Malaysian centric and limited. They do not design to earn, but they produce for people that share the same passion with them. Surprisingly they have many foreign supports and the first design was sold out in a week time.
After talking to them, they really did inspire me in many ways and it made me realize what is uncage in my own perspective. I always believe that we have to be daring in chasing for our dreams and just believe that one day our dream will come true. Action speaks louder than words, and we have to uncage our passion by stepping out from our comfort zone. It has always been my dream to be a model and I have great passion in it, but there will be always people out there that doubt and condemn me. It will make me feel weak and down sometimes, but I decided that I should uncage my passion and just be bold in chasing my dream. It’s not an easy road to achieve what you want in life, but one day when you look back, you will realize that you have tried your best. So I decided to uncage myself in chasing my dream! I can’t really disclose what I’m gonna do now, but I will definitely announce it once it’s confirm!

So remember, nothing is impossible in life as long you have the passion and courage. Once you have uncage your passion, you will realize that you will be one step closer to your dream. Believe in yourself and take the first step out for yourself too. I have taken my first step in life, and now all I can hope is that it will drive me further towards my dream! Don’t give up because we can do it! Btw, check out the uncage video here with Mutha Puaka.

Having fun with my new Acer Aspire Switch 10 E powered by Intel Inside

Acer might not be an unfamiliar name to tech lovers, but to me it’s also a name that I have known long time ago. Acer laptop is the first laptop that I bought and it has been with me throughout my uni life. I’m glad that Acer has been innovating and improving these few years to cater towards the new generation and keeping up with trend. Just recently, I was invited to the launch of their latest hybrid laptop/tablet, Acer Aspire Switch 10 E powered by Intel Inside in conjunction with the new opening of Acer Concept Store at Quill City Mall on 28th April 2014. It was also great to meet familiar faces during the event!

During the launch, I was one of the first few to actually tour their newly opened concept store at Quill City Mall and also of course to witness the launch of Acer Aspire Switch 10 E powered by Intel Inside. I was so eager to feel and play with the hybrid laptop/tablet and realize that with the New Generation “Acer Snap Hinge 2”, it advanced the switch between 4 modes - Display, Tent, Laptop and Tablet. This means I could angle it in any way I like and also detached the screen and use it as a tablet.

The Acer Aspire Switch 10 E powered by Intel Inside is not just versatile on the notebook mode, it is also actually very versatile in fashion too. It comes with multiple eye catching colours from Shark Grey, Peacock Blue, Moonstone White and Coral Red that suits any lifestyle. If you are a more loud and daring person, then the Magenta Pink that will be launching in June will be your best choice of colour!

So I have been playing with the Acer Aspire Switch 10 E powered by Intel Inside for these few days and I just can’t leave it behind me. LOL… It’s so light and convenient for me to bring out during my casual outing with friends especially for me to update my blog when I’m café hoping around. The contemporary design and sophisticated textile pattern on the top cover and underside creates an elegant look that is so fashionable. The cover also has better durability in preventing scratches and dirts, so no worries for me if there is any coffee stain on it. No one can see it! Hahahha… 

Another awesome feature that I like so much about this Acer Aspire Switch 10 E powered by Intel Inside is the long lasting battery hour. Hahha…. Battery life up to 12 hours, which means I can watch my drama all day err day outside without worrying that my tablet will die on me when it hits the drama climax! LOL… This hybrid laptop/tablet is not just for fun and entertainment; it could also help me on serious work because it comes with a one year subscription to Office 365. So drafting proposal for my work, blogging and planning my schedule is not a problem at all. I know that all of us will have many private information and data saved in our laptop, so luckily with Acer SwitchLock™ our privacy is securely protected when we pair the pad and dock to enjoy greater data protection when using the dock’s hard drive.

Social media, dramas and games has become so important in our daily life that we just can’t live without all the gadgets! My mum will always nag about me looking at the tablet for too long and how it will damage my eye sight. It’s actually true but now with Acer Aspire Switch 10 E powered by Intel Inside tablet, I will just answer her that the build in Acer BluelightShield™ can be enabled to reduce the blue-light emission to protect users’ eyes. So no eye damage = more games more drama! Hahaha….

So guess I have been talking too much about how fun and useful it is to use this laptop/tablet, and I would also hope that one of you could get a chance to win this home and experience it! Acer Malaysia Facebook Page will be giving away 2 units of Acer Aspire Switch 10 E powered by Intel Inside from the 30th April- 30th May 2015 (total of 5 weeks). Just stay tuned at their Facebook page every week, follow the instruction and you could just stand a chance winning a unit home! Wait no more! Head over to Acer Malaysia Facebook Page now! Good luck :)
