Ninetology U9 Series Launch @ 1881 Chong Tian Hotel Penang

Ninetology I must say is currently aggressively marketing their products and now with their U9 series, its starting to really make an impact. Recently the company hosted their launch in Penang and I believe that they managed to have one heck of a venue by choosing 1881 Chong Tian Hotel! The hotel is a heritage reborn and probably Ninetology shares the same belief that they will be here to stay in the smart phone business.
Being a ASEAN product, they are targeting some primary areas of focus which is to have performance and usability at an affordable price.
It was a pretty exciting launching with all their latest models on display and all the media personnel were able to have some hands on time with it. Besides that, there were also games and quizzes with 3 lucky winners that day walking home with their new smart phones. Its really was a blast of a launch and hopefully I will be getting my hands on one of these phones for a review soon! For now, check out the pictures. Credits also to the hotel for hosting the event with some very good food for the night!

 The media checking in
 Everyone trying the phones out
 And then dinner starts. What a feast with the Chong Tian hot combination which has 5 types of starters!
 Sharksfin with dried scallops was awesome. Yes I know we should stop eating this, but I didn't select the menu and it would then really be a waste not to eat it. Served in miniature dragon head bowls
 Ninetology director giving a few words!
 Fried special Longevity Pork! This one was yummy but it was abit fatty so can't take that much
 This steamed grouper was really good and there was nothing left after it went round the table
 Braised fish maw with fresh mushroom was a letdown. I was so expecting this to be good from the look of it but it tasted bland and not well executed
 King prawns in noodle soup is ala Super Sized Prawns Hokkien Mee! Can't beat that I guess. The soup was laced with bits of pork strips and egg and this one actually was pretty decent though if the broth had some blended prawns, then it probably would be awesome
 And finally dessert was chilled fresh mango with pomelo. Well, I would have liked it better if they had used some chilled mango sorbet instead of orange cordial for the base. Just pretty standard affair for this one
Overall, an interesting event launch at a unique venue. Lets hope to see more from Ninetology soon ya!
