Join Lenovo #TheaterMaxMy contest now to win an experience of your choice worth up to RM20,000!

Last Sunday (19 June), my wife and I brought our two kids — 3-year-old and 7-month-old — to Sunway Pyramid shopping mall for the Father’s Day celebration.

While windows shopping, I passed by a Lenovo retailer shop on the 1st floor. They are having a #TheaterMaxMy contest and you could win an experience worth up to RM20,000!

Nice! I always wish to have a great trip with my wife. Is this my chance? Moreover, it is simple to enter the contest. No purchase required!

All you have to do is experience the Lenovo TheatherMax VR (Virtual Reality) technology and take a photo then upload to facebook or Instagram. Hey, you don’t even need to fill in any form nor an email address!

Without a second’s hesitation, I enter my VR world by wearing a Lenovo VR headset with VIBE K Note, which has built-in TheaterMax VR technology and Dolby Atmos speakers.

To my surprise, the VR headset is glasses friendly. Meaning, I could wear my glasses in the virtual world! No more blur images!

My wife standing nearby with kids helped me take some photos. Fortunately, one out of ten is a good take:
