Samsung Galaxy Tab Life 2.0 Brand Ambassadors

My event: May 11, 2011

Powerplant Mall

I normally shy away from tech events but I am interested with what Samsung Galaxy Tab Life 2.0 has to offer. I am also kind of intrigue to see their new batch of brand ambassadors so I ended up attending this press launch.

I was on time but the event started an hour or so late. I was seated only a table away from the host who was holding a Samsung Tab. It was within my reach but I was not lucky enough to touch it haha Maybe I can buy one for myself. With its impressive feature, how can anyone resist it.

with Carlos Celdran

I have spotted Carlos Celdran on his way out. He obliged for a photo op. Wearing a red long sleeved shirt, I wouldn't miss a chance taking his photo with me. Known for his now infamous Damaso stunt, Carlos is still much visible as a performance artist in his one man show, Walk This Way.

He has this to say for Samsung Galaxy Tab "My favorite thing about the Galaxy Tab is that it's sturdy. It's not delicate. And it is strong enough to withstand all the hits ad bangs of my lifestyle. Its like my office goes around with me. Because of the telephone feature, the tab has become and integral part of my existence."

I have to share what we had for lunch because it's so good, I wanted to go back for more!
