Everyone's favorite 2 characters.

 Sponsored post

There are 2 characters which can make many a techie (well, basically anyone who appreciates a cutting-edge solid gadget) hyperventilates in excitement. It was the S1, S2, S3...

And until very very recently, it’s the S4.

The Samsung Galaxy S4.

Finally the Samsung S4 has reached our shores! Just over the weekend, I was invited to the launch of the much awaited phone…

The launch was spread out into a few venues that day, and started at Blue Cube in Sunway Pyramid. I was quite taken aback at the amount of people there—it shows that there are MANY people are really excited over the S4 launch!

Everyone being super excited, and couldn’t wait to catch a glimpse of the phone.

There was a Carnival theme going on, and the whole event was filled with lush colors, vibrant costumes, and intriguing antics (think a ventriloquist and clowns shuffling on stilts wtf).

Colorful balloons that added a happy vibe to the launch. Spirits were high, because of the anticipation of the phone, I guess!

But we didn’t need to wait long… Suddenly we heard some loud horns, and we saw this:

And everything happened in a happy blur after that:

Really awesome breakdancing that was done in an interesting concept—a ‘conductor’ controlling its ‘puppets’.

The coolest band ever—they are so edgy and fun playing with (mainly) drums! Made me wish I joined the school band last time wtf.

See!! They even did some pretty snazzy moves like lying on the ground and criss-crossing legs in sync. Impressive, and really puts everyone in the right mood!

Cheerleader with enthusiastic cheers for the S4.

All while the team of clowns, mimes and assorted characters were bringing the crowds’ spirits even higher.

And the Samsung S4 was launched!

We then moved towards the Digi center in Sunway Pyramid, where the phone will also be launched ceremoniously.

EVERYONE went there, including the clowns on stilts! Haha.

And the launch continued onto Low Yat Plaza. I had to give the event a miss as I was flying off to Europe shortly after, but I am sure it was an exciting event as well. Most importantly, it signifies the S4’s official launch in Malaysia, and I seriously can’t wait to give the phone a go! I have heard wonderful things about it. :)

You can catch a glimpse of the event during the day here:
