[ Media Invite ]
Canon invited us to a “Family bloggers shootout” on Sentosa. We all love treasure hunting, and we got a series of tasks to complete for the afternoon.
The meeting point was at Taste of Asia. After getting our mission brief, we were equipped with Canon cameras and given a short demo on the camera’s functionality.
We got a Powershot G7X, a very powerful and niffy consumer camera. It comes with a wireless feature too. Simply download a Canon app (Canon CW) and you will be able to transmit photo from camera to phone to Social Media 🙂
After getting a quick bite and some useful camera tips, we were ready to navigate Sentosa island with a Japanese language map. We grabbed the wrong map in our haste haha 🙂
#Task 1 – We have always seen Sentosa’s Merlion from far or near, but we never consider going up before. Level 10 would be the Mouth, and if weather permits, you can climb to the Head too.
Canon Powershot G7X performs excellently in low light!
Wishing coin at the top floor.
We need to take a photo of the view from the Merlion’s mouth.
On to our next task, we did not forget to have Fun along our “Race”. Canon Powershot G7x’s flip LCD is really convenient for selfie photos!
#Task 2 – Sky Tower
From the top of Sky Tower, we could see a storm approaching Sentosa Island!
Mission accomplished, wefie from High above 🙂
Sentosa Island is also known as “The State of Fun”.
Some other attractions spotted on Sentosa (iFly woohoo! and Playcation).
Due to the heavy downpour, everyone had to gather back at Taste of Asia. Kids were disappointed that they could not accomplish the last two tasks, Luge (LUGE!) and Segway.
But they did have tons of fun doing selfie and wefie with each other haha. This generation of kids are always ready to embrace new technology.

#Task 3 – We waited for the Rain to become smaller before going for the Luge ride. From past experience, Once is never enough!

Thank you Canon and Sentosa for the fun afternoon! Although the rain decided to gatecrash our party, the Canon family bloggers still had a great day out 🙂
