Be there – 090109 @ 7pm and yes we were there, for the launching of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. OK, not exactly 7pm sharp, come on, this is KL and how could we who work outside KL city going to reach Pavilion on time for the event? Ya Ya, lame excuses I know. I drove HuaiBin and Suanie there and we saw Reta and Erna after registration. We were considering kind of early though.

The event started slightly over 7.30pm with some splendid drum performances from waste sink, steel bucket, tins, and other items. I believe everyone there was enjoying the show although only minority of crowd actually moves as the beats flow. Some alcohol might help.

The first word from the event was actually from a mat salleh who I thought was the MC of the night but eventually I was wrong. He is the big shot of Nokia Malaysia. He was doing his part pretty well; PR here and there, making sure everyone in the events was nicely fed and enjoyed.

The official launching announcement comes with the features presentation of this 5800 XpressMusic. It is one of the very few touch screens Nokia phone. I was lucky to tried out the phone in the 1st hand because KY and Suanie got one unit each to play with before it was launch. It is a pretty comprehensive phone. I like the vibration feedback feel while touching the screen. Although the thickness of the phone is still acceptable, if it would be slightly thinner, I’ll surely be happy to have one in my pocket since the price is a surprisingly affordable RM1,499. For more detail review of the phone, please check out KY’s and Suanie’s posts.

While the shows still running with some awesome drums with water act and some hip hop singing, we were joined by the rest, KY, Cindy, Zoe, Tock, before heading to La Bodega. I was seriously starving but soon satisfied with the overwhelming FOODsss… I love the food; it was “the” good with free flow of juices and beers. I was told Nokia fed the bloggers better than the media… hehehe..no idea how true was this. Maybe Huei or Reta can tell us about it.

After fixing the starvation, socialization, camwhoring among the bloggers started. There were some media friends joining us later on after their press conference at Michaelangelo.

Overall, it was a fantastic event for the beginning of the year. Really looking forward to such happening function along the way of 2009. Thank you Suanie for the invitation and EeVon to have my name on the insider list.
