Astro On The Go Live Explorer event at Sunway Pyramid happened on the 18th May, 2013, myself and a few other bloggers had the privilege to be there and be part of the event coverage team to witness the participation of more than twenty pairs of contestants in this elaborate tele-match like competition.
Astro On The Go Explorer Live Explorer at Sunway Pyramid
Participants gathered at Sunway Pyramid starting just before 10 am, they were then paired in groups of two and were geared with Astro On The Go brochure, iPad, and mobile 4G wifi dongle, tools they will need to complete their adventure of the day as explorers in Pyramid.
contestants figuring out what they have to accomplish at this station
Each team has a pilot and co-pilot, the aim was to figure out the clues and then find the booth/station in which the team had to answer questions and/or perform certain tasks.
There were 10 stations in total, scattered at different places in Sunway Pyramid. Do remember that Sunway Pyramid is the 9th largest mall in the world with over 4 million square foot, so it is quite challenging.
juggling the ball isn’t exactly a very simple task
The ten stations represent some of the channels on Astro On The Go, for example – Sports, Maharaja Lawak, Geng Bas Sekolah, Hanna Montana, Korean Series and so forth.
I went to the Sports booth located outside the ADIDAS store to check out what was happening.
At this booth, the participants basically had to juggle the ball at least 3 times, answer a question regarding the sports channel available on Astro On The Go, then snapped a photo and upload it on twitter/facebook. Some groups really struggled quite a bit on the juggling part, but everyone eventually got it right and no display window was broken.

Lunch was served after every team had completed their tasks, and a long line up of performances followed on the main stage to treat guests and participants. The cast of Oh My English! was there, and there were Aaron Aziz, Johan Raja Lawak, Ajak Raja Lawak, Ila Damia, and more too.
