Congratulations Singapore Team in the Brand’s Mental Challenge!

I was at the Geek Terminal this week to give my support to the Malaysia and Singapore Bloggers in the first ever Mental Challenge hosted by Brands.

There was a sense of excitement in the air. By the time I reached there, the competition was already undergoing halfway and the audience were enraptured at the action in front of them. I found an empty seat and looked around.

At that point of time, the scores were 9 to Malaysia and 4 to Singapore.

That was where I noticed Eastcoastlife, Endoh and Sheylara and two other guys whom I later came to know as Wilfrid and Aaron.

Here they were doing a word challenge in which they were to create as many words as possible from the following letters.

The Malaysian Team who consisted of Red Diva, Sultan Mufazzar, KY, Suanie and Babe in the City were hard at work, scribbling as many word combinations as possible.

9 to 4 was such a large gap. I felt nervous for the competitors and can only imagine how it would be for the contestants themselves.

But it was when the results from the word challenge was announced, was when the marks were turned around with Malaysia having 40 and Singapore 44. There was hope! And it was so exciting!

With the proceeding rounds, I sat at the edge of the chair rather nervewrecked as the competitors trudged on. There were a number of very interesting questions such as memory recall questions, word association questions as well as the popular ball in a cup question.

Below is a short montage of the event :

I had to chuckle out loud when Endoh and Red Diva had to answer which cup the chick was under – the cup was spinning so fast!

Slowly Singapore collected the points and emerged victorious with the final score of 54 to 47. Woah!

But of course, it was all in good spirits with the Malaysian team being a very good sport out of it as it all boils down to having fun.

I had a short chat with the competitors and was really happy to find that the Malaysian team to be very friendly, witty and down to earth. It was refreshing to hear them talk of the things that interests them without any airs at all despite the fact that they had a very high following on their respective blogs.

Thank you Selena and Matthew and Brands for having me as a guest. I had a very lovely time and though I still am not confident in participating, hopefully there would be something like this again next year! πŸ™‚
