Samsung GALAXY Note 2 Launch @ Zebra Square

12:42 AM

Exactly a week ago (11 October 2012), more than 50 bloggers were invited to the Launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note II at Zebra Square, Kuala Lumpur. If you're wondering where's Zebra Square you're not alone. I never knew the existence of this place until last week.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II's theme is 'On the Go Creativity' where it enables personalized unique experiences and expressive content creation.

Saw my old Uni friend! He's working for a magazine company now. Calvin. 
This brownie is awesome! 

The cupcake decoration was really random, there were tables surrounded by the Note II for people to play and test it out, and you suddenly see a few people decorating cupcakes. But it was kind of interesting because I've never put icing on a cake or anything before and I've always wanted to try squeezing those cream/icing on cakes. (Seen it too much on TV :p) 

Mine is the top left and it's filled with so much cream, sugar and fats! I enjoy the decorating part but i won't eat it. Haha.
