PUMA Evo Speed Media Launch @ PJ Trade Center

Today is the first day of August, another month has passed just by a flick of our eyes. Lets rewind a little bit to the early month of July there was one video which had went viral. The 8-minute viral video in which depicts life of a failing security guard who eventually excels in his career thanks to the evoSPEED range by PUMA. I was invited to attend the media launch and able to meet our local sportsman and celebrity at their HQ in PJ Trade Center.

The theme,"Everyone Can Bolt".
The evoSPEED styles is currently worn by PUMA’s key athletes in running (Usain Bolt), football (Sergio Aguero and Mario Gomez), motorsport (Fernando Alonso) and golf (Rickie Fowler).

It was inspired by the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt and transpired through Malaysia’s first choice goalkeeper Khairul Fahmi Che Mat, evoSPEED was finally launched in style at the Puma Malaysia headquarters. With the theme “SEMUA BOLEH BOLT”, a reflection of worldwide promotion “EVERYONE CAN BOLT”.

Car Racing Video Game! So cool right?
Soccer Penalty Game
Fussball. Can you spot Phatfabes?
No idea what this game is called. Maybe it's "kick the ball into the goal post with a huge football shoe". LOL
Although it was the fasting month, it had not started yet so food is part of the agenda of the day.

I like the nasi lemak the most!
PUMA cupcakes anyone? :)
