ASTRO B.yond Blogger Night

Last night I'd the was invited by Nuffnang to join a list of famous bloggers at the ASTRO B.yond Bloggers Night. This event showcase the superior motion and sound quality of ASTRO B.yond in High-Definition Format or better known as HD. Malaysian bloggers were among the first to watch the premiere of Malaysia's First High-Definition Television Commercial which will subsequently be aired on all the 5 HD channel on ASTRO. Held at Rain Club, Modesto's, Desa Sri Hartamas, the event which was schedule to start at 7.30pm only managed to kick off about 30 minutes later as most people came late.

As tradition in any bloggers event, I'm given a piece of sticker to write my name on and stick it on myself.

Each bloggers were given a goody bag each which contain the press release as well some freebies such ASTRO Water Bottle & a very nice mini organiser.

Experience, See, Hear, Touch and Feel everything in HD, that's the concept that ASTRO is selling.

Bloggers are also invited to pen down their new year resolutions at the entrance.

The crowd enjoy Malaysia's First HD TV Commercial.

I was told that this television commercial is one of the longest in Malaysia Television commercial history with a length of approximately 2.30 minutes. Beside the premiere of the first HD commercial, there were also games whereby bloggers are given a chance to win a 32" LG HDTV and 1 year free subscribtion to ASTRO B.yond service. was one of the first few bloggers featured in HD Advertisement
