You need to fill your details and answer a few simple questions. That’s all. Your total submissions will be displayed to let you keep track.

You can purchase anything inside Switch stores worldwide and eligible for the giveaway and not exclusive to Apple products only. For example, you can purchase Belkin iPad Air 2 casing worth RM159 and that qualifies you one submission. If you purchase iPhone 6 16GB worth RM2,702, then you will have 27 submissions. So, the more you buy or the higher-priced product *hinting the Mac Pro* that you buy will give you more submissions and also will increase your chances of winning.


Switch held its first ever press conference at Andaman Grand Ballroom Foyer, Park Royal Hotel to announce their Epic Giveaway on 24th April 2015.

As usual, the tall Switcher, Kant will be the MC of the press conference with his husky and sexy voice. The press conference started with the introduction of CG Computers Sdn Bhd, which is the company behind the successful brand name, Switch and PT Erafone Artha Retailindo.

Butter loves this name a lot as it is a simple word but brings a strong meaning which is asking you to switch from PC to Mac. The logo is also very stylish and modern and fits the Apple style. CG Computers is started by Mr Li Chau Ging and his wife, Ms Peggy Tan with the first office at Mr Li’s mother’s home office in Bukit Mertajam to serve the Apple community in Malaysia. Their business started with Mr Li’s fiery passion in Apple products since his university days. Today, CG Computers operates 26 retail outlets under Switch trade name all over Malaysia.

After the press conference, Butter was invited to join their Switch annual dinner, #SwitchAD15 with Magical Disney as their theme. Butter was able to see many of her childhood characters coming to life. The company is very generous to its employees by providing such an awesome 8-course dinner. This is also the 1st time CG Computers opened up their annual dinner to outside guests, specifically, the press. 🙂 Butter is feeling lucky to be invited! 🙂

Here are the photos of some of the dishes we had at Park Royal Hotel. It seems that Park Royal Hotel serves very good 8-course dinner. Another good place to consider for those who are planning their wedding dinner and wishes to impress their guests. 🙂

Here was the list of the dishes we had that day.

Park Royal Eight Hot & Cold Combination

This dish left a very great impression on us. It is a very scrumptious and luxurious starter dish. It looked like a main course dish. Very impressive and delectable.

Chinese Pi Pa Duck with Plum Sauce

Disney characters overload. How many Disney characters are there in this photo? 😛

The performance by dance studios was also according to the Magical Disney theme. So nice! 🙂
