Maxis 4G Bloggers Blaze was held on 9 December 2013 where more than 30 bloggers participating in a RunningMan-Like competition. It was more of like a mini Running Man challenge where 10 teams of bloggers traveled around Klang Valley to complete several tasks with the help of Maxis 4G LTE connection.
It was an early Sunday morning where we all gathered at The Curve as the the first check point. Each team consist of 4 members where I was assigned to be in Team Puma with 3 awesome bloggers – Chenelle Wen, Jessica Chaw and Cik Epal!! Every team got a Samsung Note 3 with access to Maxis 4G LTE network to use for the day.
After the short briefing provided, the very first task for all of us in the 10 teams was to scan the right QR code with an instruction to proceed on the next task. Proton vehicles were provided for all the teams as the ride of the day after each team has successfully obtain the QR code on the many Maxis balloons at The Curve. If I’m not mistaken we were the 6th or 7th group to finish the first task.
We went off to Mad Monkeyz Climbing Gym at Wangsa Maju with the help of Waze application on our Samsung Note 3 device with Maxis 4G LTE inside. The connection was excellent that morning and we got off real quick following the directions through the device. Too bad we weren’t one of the first teams to leave the starting point, we ended up the 4th team to arrive at Mad Monkeyz.
The rock climbing challenge at Mad Monkeyz was mad as quite a number of us bloggers never had similar experience before. 2 out of the 3 teams before my team didn’t get to complete the task given where there were points deduction. I myself failed in completing the task with all 3 team members Chenelle, Jessica and Epal completing it, I blame it on the extra weight gained recently!!
Well thank God for awesome team mates where the 3 of them didn’t blame me. We got the next instruction from the game master at Mad Monkeyz and proceed on travelling all the way to Sunway Lagoon from Wangsa Maju (YES, one end to another)! Again, we used Waze and got there in time to complete a mini challenge which involves playing a Car Drag Race on the Samsung device. Instructions were given that we have to download the application before playing and I noticed that with Maxis 4G LTE connection, the app was downloaded in seconds, like immediately! Soon we got our scores through the mini challenge and sent the screen shots of the scores to the game master before getting a green light in taking on the next challenge.
Go Kart Racing Challenge in Sunway Lagoon itself was next and it really felt like a whole mini Running Man game show minus the amount of crazy videographers/photographers around. After completing 3 laps with a thumbs up chop on our score sheet, we jumped back into the car and head back to the curve for the very final challenge. The sun was slightly up then where we were kinda exhausted.
Not sure if Maxis did it intentionally or not, the last challenge was to eat watermelons! Having watermelons under the hot sun ain’t a bad idea right? Well, try having 1/4 of watermelons where you’re working with 2 of your team members to compete with the other teams. Though my team was the last to complete the task, I had quite a lot of fun altogether and it was a good Sunday for me personally.
By completing the challenge given, we get to experience first-hand Maxis 4G LTE connection and on top of that – have fun along the way. Congrats to the winning teams where they won themselves awesome gadgets and Maxis 4G LTE devices. It was awesome and I had fun, we should have stuff like this more often. Thumbs up to Maxis!
