Wongamania around the World - The Story Behind...

Many of you are fascinated on the reasons on why I have been putting Wongamania on my head while traveling around Europe.

Now, everyone is demanding that I put Wongamania on my head when posing with the box game. OMG!

Here is a short history how it came about.

One fine evening, as I was making the movie for the Crowdtivate campaign, I got so bored and decided to take a few crazy poses with Wongamania.

While conducting one of the Wongamania workshop at Bursa Malaysia, we held a Wongamania instagram competition. The winner of  the second Wongamania workshop came up with this winning work.

A not very original imitation but won the hearts of the judges
Than people started requesting me to put Wongamania on my head while posing with me....

One of my SG Unfit Runners suggested that I should do a Wongamania around Europe idea and pose with the box on my head. I thought that it was quite a fun idea and I had fun taking many selfies at different locations with Wongamania on my head.

There are many times when putting a game set on top of your head while taking a selfie at the same time draws too much unwanted attention, a more subtle method is required...

Mainly by just putting the card box on a prominent site and start taking tons of pictures of it while passerby watched curiously what this "mad" Asian was doing.

Of course, I acted naturally as if it's a "Asian" thing to be taking pictures of a game box all around the city...
