Bringing Ninetology Onto The Next Level

In conjunction with Malaysia’s 56th Independence Day, Ninetology Malaysia has officially launched its Flagship Touch Point at Plaza Low Yat, Malaysia’s Largest IT Lifestyle Mall, on 30 August 2013. With a concept like no other, Ninetology’s Flagship Touch Point offers consumers an experiential touch point for today’s lifestyles and culture as well as a product showcase. At the Flagship Touch Point, not only would the Ninetology products be showcased, it’s a place where consumers can learn how to use a smartphone to enhance their lifestyles and interests. The flagship Touch Point will serve as a youth and culture training hub to spread the urbanite culture that is cultivated by Ninetology. The Ninetology smartphones are not just communication tools, but a device that can advance one’s social visibility, thus opening doors to more opportunities. Eight more Flagship Touch Points within the Klang Valley will be opened this year with another nine outlets scheduled within Malaysia by next year. The Ninetology’s Flagship Touch Point is opened from 10.00am to 10.00pm daily.

FLAGSHIP TOUCH POINT

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held to launch the first Flagship Touch Point. Gracing the ceremony were the management team of Ninetology Malaysia comprising of Sean Ng (Chief Executive Officer), Marco Beh (Chief Operations Officer), Shian (Chief Finance Officer), Vijian Chan (Chief Marketing Officer), and Eddy Tay (Head of Channel); Michael Lee (General Manager, Property Management and Operations of Plaza Low Yat), and celebrities such as Z-Chen, Iqwal Hafiz, and Sasi the Don.

Earlier last month, Ninetology Malaysia also launched their U9 series at KL Hilton Hotel, Malaysia. The “Unite-as-One” power-infused technology with the urbanite profile was presented in three models: The X1, Z1, and Z1+, which are new and stylish devices engineered to meet the human needs of speed, precision and high levels of engagement.

Air Asia’s Bloggers Community Soiree @ Air Asia Academy

To be honest, I couldn’t stop grinning from ear to ear when I received an e-mail from Air Asia that I am invited for this party. I have been flying with Air Asia all along for all my backpacking trips with my group of backpacking kakis, but never thought that I would be able to step into the Air Asia Academy. Everything seemed new, different and so much more for me to explore in a day.

I was flown from Penang to KL with Air Asia. Well, I think I was the only one from Penang as I did not meet any familiar faces though. It was an early flight. Half way zombifying my way to KL but all good as I managed to grabbed myself a hot latte before boarding. The newly renovated Penang International Airport is still a maze to me. I can’t find Starbucks, so McCafe it is! photo DSC_0079_zps06d05911.jpg

I checked on the hashtag (#AABCBloggers & #AABCParty) on Instagram and Twitter every few minutes hoping that I am able to see updates on a stranded victim like me at the airport to kill time. Oh, yes, which later on I stumbled upon two bloggers from Kuching, RoseWong.com & Akiraceo.com. See! This is how helpful hashtags can be! With no hesitations, I dropped her a comment on her Instagram and we met up!

There is a shuttle which picked us up from LCCT and upon reaching the Air Asia Academy, we received a very warm welcome by the crew.  photo DSC_0083_zps076935d0.jpg

New friend found :) Rose of RoseWong.com photo DSC_0102_zpsf462262a.jpg

Hence, we have to go through a few challenges throughout the day. The first was to make things more interesting than what AA crew was able to perform for the safety procedure session. We did well ya know! I believe my team has the ability to draw the passengers’ attention if we were to do that on board :P Yeah, not just those formal safety procedures, also with songs and interesting acts!

We have Rico & Jason to handle this.  photo DSC_0313_zps9f5cbaec.jpg photo DSC_0306_zps7d0c83fd.jpg

This would be the most interesting activity for me. Perhaps, not just me but all the other bloggers as well. For those who do not know, this is a  flight simulators and it operates 24-hours daily. photo DSC_0344_zpsdd55bd7c.jpg photo DSC_0338_zps2a281ce1.jpg

This would be what you usually hear on board. photo DSC_0348_zpsa6bb69d4.jpg

I know all bloggers were so anticipated that they might have taken a bit longer hence while waiting, Rico and I were busy camwhoring :D photo DSC_0378_zps651271a0.jpg photo DSC_0388_zpsd9110b3b.jpg

My oh my! The moment I stepped in, I was fascinated with the cockpit’s dashboards. I always love the many-many-buttons on my dashboard and voila! Looks like I get to play with them now! photo DSC_0432_zpsb32b10d6.jpg photo DSC_0423_zpsb2f0ec66.jpg photo DSC_0442_zpsb9163d6b.jpg

We get to learn how to take off and land. photo DSC_0447_zps61f8a245.jpg

Everything on the dashboard is just too cool that I don’t even know what their functions are! … and yes, I have fetish for many-many buttons! photo DSC_0459_zps58698579.jpg photo DSC_0461_zpsb6496586.jpg

Survival! photo DSC_0462_zpsb919469c.jpg

Yup, I’ve been to Yangon! photo DSC_0467_zpsf93599f1.jpg photo DSC_0469_zps2dd6f69b.jpg

Our team completed the task and we finally decided to name ourselves Obey-Lo! photo DSC_0474_zps272041d5.jpg

Colourful #AABC cupcakes! photo DSC_0489_zps52ed1b50.jpg

After a day of running here and there, its time to savour! LOL! photo DSC_0480_zpsbce0bb05.jpg

We were chilling away with the many bean bags. Now, how can I not make myself at home? :D photo DSC_0499_zpsa4d23a03.jpg

After the makan session, we gathered while waiting for the AA crew to announce the winning team. photo DSC_0539_zpsd435fede.jpg photo DSC_0559_zps722daa8f.jpg

… which my team did not win but I won myself a pair of free ticket to Busan, Korea! OMG! That was really surprising and check out the speechless moment on my face! This would be the best birthday gift of the year! Thank you so much AirAsia! photo DSC_0520_zps14022b31.jpg photo DSC_0549_zps4bb29c18.jpg

We, the few who won ourselves a pair of free flights! Its time to travel again! photo DSC_0534_zps4378eb26.jpg

Again, before I leave for Penang, I stumbled upon the Kuching duos again while waiting for my ride. photo DSC_0564_zps0da732f0.jpg photo DSC_0569_zpsb78a55b0.jpg photo DSC_0465_zps92f31ac4.jpg

DRC_7739

A Lamborghini Gallardo was put on display at the walkway of the Grand Dorsett Hotel, Subang Jaya. On top of that Relax Time provided some massage chairs! Awesome right?It is actually a day whereby Mr. Sean Ng Chee Heng (Chief Executive Officer, Ninetology Marketing Sdn Bhd), Mr. Jason Lo (Chief Executive Officer, Tune Talk) and Mr. Mantosh Malhorta (Senior Director of Business Development Country Head Philippines, Singapore & Malaysia, Qualcomm Incorporated) signed off the Synergistic Strategic Alliance, all happened on the auspicious day, April

Previously, Ninetology launched a few great gadgets … and its back with another batch of great gadgets. Any idea what it is? Today, Ninetology is unveiling their Pearl Mini with the theme “Experiencing Differences with The Youth’s Spirit”.

DRC_7842SSA04 photo SSA04_zpsc63fe16a.jpg

Pearl Mini hereby will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon platform and also will be packaged with Tune Talk’s prepaid service which the packaged plan include RM50 FREE Talktime (comes preloaded with SIM) and RM100 Airtime Rebate (RM10 x 10).

Anyway, the highlight is that Ninetology is now collaborating with Tune Talk and Qualcomm which I think it is answering to your queries above having to see Pearl Mini is packaged to it.

Besides that, Ninetology is in Indonesia which at the same time they have engaged with Agnes Monica as their brand ambassador. Ninetology will also be progressing into Singapore, Cambodia and Vietnam’s market by the end of this year.

Among the gadgets launch, my personal favourite would be The Phantom Series Stealth II i9500. Stealth II runs on an Android 4.0 OS with an 8.0MP camera and features the Dual SIM Connectivity and vivid 5.2 inch touch screen display. Amazingly, Stealth II has a matte finish back cover which is able to prevent minor scratches and fingerprints. The touch screen is sensitive and responses are fast as it runs on 1.0 GHz Dual Core. Best thing on this beauty is, it is only priced at RM899 for all the features stated above!
