Astro B.yond Bloggers Night @ Modesto's Desa Sri Hartamas

Astro have recently launched the first High Definition (HD) broadcast in Malaysia. Have you got yourself Astro B.yond HD yet? HD? Apa itu HD? “Hou Dim” in Cantonese ah? Haha… It’s High Definition la. You will be seeing this term everywhere when you go to look for LCD TV / Plasma TV. If you want a true HD experience please get yourself upgraded to Astor B.yond and you will not be regret, it’s crystal clear and you could see every single details on the screen! It’s true.

Talking about HD I still remember few years back when I was a promoter for Plasma and LCD TV (*yes, I work very hard even when I was young and do all all kind of part-time*), I keep mention to the prospect who wants to get new Plasma / LCD TV that Astro is going HD in few years so that they will actually get to the full use of the HD TV and true enough, I did not lie =p now, Astro is coming up with HD. Few years back it’s only HD and now all are talking about Full HD and LED TV, technology move really fast and if you do not keep up to it, you will be left behind. So you know what’s HD? Haha.

Few days back, Astro was having a bloggers night @ Modesto’s Desa Sri Hartamas where all the bloggers were invited to the event. When I reached Hartamas, only then I found out that Modesto’s shifted from the petrol station to next to the Bomba… hmm I think the previous place is nicer but the event actually held @ Rain Club next to it.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
