About the series

When she was a deeply troubled teenager, Nikita (Maggie Q, “Live Free or Die Hard,” “Mission Impossible 3”) was rescued from death row by a secret U.S. agency known only as Division, who faked her execution and told her she was being given a second chance to start a new life and serve her country. What they didn’t tell her was that she was being trained as a spy and assassin. Throughout her grueling training at Division, Nikita never lost her humanity, even falling in love with a civilian. When her fiancé was murdered, Nikita realized she had been betrayed and her dreams shattered by the only people she thought she could trust, so she did what no one else before her had been able to do: she escaped. Now, after three years in hiding, Nikita is seeking retribution and making it clear to her former bosses that she will stop at nothing to expose and destroy their covert operation.

For the time being, however, Division continues to recruit and train other young people, erasing all evidence of their former lives and turning them into cold and efficient killers. One of these new recruits, Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca, “Kick-Ass,” “Desperate Housewives”), is a beautiful girl with a violent past and a story not so different from Nikita’s. After her parents were murdered, Alex’s life completely derailed. Haunted by her horrific past, she ended up drug-addicted and homeless until Division “rescued” her and brought her into the fold.

Division’s top authority, Percy (Xander Berkeley, “Kick-Ass,” “24”) spent years being a good government soldier, taking his role as an insider and using it to turn the secret organization into a lucrative spy-for-hire shop. With Nikita gone rogue, Percy will do whatever it takes to destroy her and protect the empire he’s built, and he often turns to his top lieutenant, Michael (Shane West, “ER,” Once and Again”), for help. Michael trained Nikita when she was a recruit and is now faced with the responsibility of tracking down his renegade student. At the same time, Michael is in charge of training Alex, Nikita’s young replacement, along with other recruits, including Thom (Ashton Holmes, “Boston Legal”), who has been at Division for a year and is anxious to prove himself, and Jaden (Tiffany Hines, “Bones”), a beautiful and tough young woman who challenges Alex at every turn.

The recruits all spend part of their training with Amanda (Melinda Clarke, “The O.C.,” “The Vampire Diaries”), a master manipulator who can turn any ugly duckling into a swan and any bleeding heart into a killer. Her use of psychological warfare and strategy is key to Percy’s entire operation. Amanda has only had one failure during her tenure at Division: Nikita, the recruit she was never able to break.

Nikita also left her mark on Birkhoff (Aaron Stanford, “Traveler,” “X-Men: The Last Stand”), the nonconformist computer genius who was caught hacking into the Pentagon’s system from his college dorm room and was recruited into Division at the same time as Nikita. Birkhoff never admits to anyone that he misses his former colleague, and he has managed to hold onto his own rebel spirit, his geek-speak and his slacker dress code.

This is the world of Division that Alex now finds herself facing everyday, and she is just beginning to understand why the legendary Nikita has dedicated herself to taking them down.

Two weeks ago when I saw it from facebook blackberry like page said that there’s a “Ultimate Blackberry Race”. Totally have no any idea what the race about , I’m just like that filled up the application on internet. Although submit application but not 100% guarantee in the race. Blackberry RIM company randomly pick 30 to form the race.

There was a total of 10 teams. 30 participants selected by random draw. 3 participants will team up with 1 celebrity and a media representative to compete in the ultimate BlackBerry race.Participants will need to complete 5 challenges at 5 venues.

Actually didn’t put high expectation !

Last Tuesday morning while I was busy meeting with client suddenly received called – “Hi , I’m Simon Yap from Blackberry RIM and you had been selected to participate the Ultimate Blackberry Race !” My reaction was just – “Ermm , well Ok ! ”

Still I didn’t put any expectation on the race. Just think to have fun.
Saturday , on the race day ! Early morning , started a bit excited.

The race venue at the out bound of The Curve. All the participant gather at Laundry Bar , that was the first time I met my team mate , 1 banker and two celebrity NINI & WILL (No idea they from which channel). Compare with other team , my team look a bit weak but……..actually each of us was awesome !

When the race began , had a clue card and blackberry device , there’s a photo inside need to find out which corner of the curve was it , our second challenged there. Second challenged , there’s 12 cupcakes on table only 1 cupcake inside had a clue card. Randomly pick and ate the cupcake until got it. Some of the team ate 11 cupcake , haha……..I volunteer to be the first person ate cupcake and pick it. The first I pick my luck was so damn~~~ everyone so unbelievable ……..GOT IT ! =P

Third challenged , either put a full water bottle on top of head for 25 second or do some math to count. Sure we choose the easy task bottle on top head , it look easy but actually not…….luckily we able to complete the task. Move on , challenged four require blackbbery device BBM bar code scan to get the next clue – “No Cloth to be wash” obviously laundry bar.

Back to Laundry Bar , final challenged required make a cocktail drink , the formula was set by Laundry Bar manager. There’s another team in front of us , thought we will lose but they unable to make a glass completely same. Who know………. WILL always clubbing(I guess,haha), piece of cake for him , less than a minute a glass of bloody red(Strawberry) cocktail done.

We got 2nd runner up at the end……….. Winner , 1st and 2nd runner up each member got a brand new model Blackberry Curve 3G device and different shopping voucher. Hmmm , not bad !

Overall the race was so excited. I’m thinking to go for audition for next season Amazing Race or Amazing Race Asia.

So now I’ve upgrade from Blackberry Curve 8520 to Curve 9300 3G.
The software is different than previous , it awesome and fast because of 3G.
