Good evening everybody! I have not turned on my computer for a long time, explaining the lack of blog activity. Hehe...
A couple of weeks back, I was invited for Astro's launching of 10 new channels at Soju, Sunway Pyramid. It was an extravagant event. Since thereafter, I have been hogging on my television and enjoyed tremendously my night with all the channels available. Let me share more with you here.
Astro's 10 new channels, which was made available on 16th November onwards comprise of 8 high definition (HD) and 2 standard definition (SD) channels. These channels are: -
Astro New HD channels:-
Fox Family Movies HD (CH 434)
Fox Action Movies HD (CH 430)
HITS HD (CH 720)
FYI HD (CH 736)
Astro AEC HD (CH 306)
Astro Shuang Xing HD (CH 307)
DIVA HD (CH 723)
FOX HD (CH 724)
Astro New SD channels:-
ZooMoo (CH 619)
Celestial Classic Movies (CH 321)
Don't you think it's great with all these HD channels catching up with us? Our home television has evolved so much, that standard definition is not captivating enough. I've always preferred watching HD channels. The image are clearer, crispier and leaves a more comfortable visual experience.
From only 4HD channels a few years back, Astro has expanded to 48 HD channels. Beginning from 1st December 2014 onwards, there will be an RM5 increment on the HD service.
Atop of that, Astro never neglects it's existing users. From now until 28th February 2015, all the new HD channels and ZooMoo will be free for view! This explains my lack-of-internet-activity after working hours. I'd prefer to stay home, watch my favourite Astro-On-Demand dramas back to back (in HD too)! This way, I saved a lot of unnecessary expenses from shopping or loitering around after work. LOL!
Astro sure knows how to kick start an event with a bang! COO Henry Tan officiate the launch of the event being captured by the Star Wars Troopers! I was expecting Darth Vader to turn up and kidnap us all but no, it didn't happen. haha...

Actually the whole venue is fun filled with life sized posters of the latest Fox Movie/Drama. This small place is packed with excitement!
In every tables, lies the cute dolls/figurine that melts everyones heart. We have....
They all make a big Astro family...
Now I get ideas for my home DIY project. Cute figurines, glow in dark stick and coloured sands.
While waiting for dinner, I went chit chatting with Kak Red from Redmummy.com. She's been so kind and humble to me with her funny and straightforward advises on "How To Get Pregnant". Everytime I mentioned about her to my husband, he definitely can remember her tips. Wait till I succeed in having a baby, and then I will spread her words of wisdom around *winks*

The event ends with a superb acrobatic performance. It's really brave for these two performers to swing and hang from the ceiling. I would have peed in my pants if I were them. LOL!
In all and all, the new #AstroHDUniverse era has begun...
