Printing My 2014 Memories With Canon! [HUGE GIVEAWAY]


2014 has been a year of change. So many things had happened, big, small, good and bad, all I can say is that I am thankful. Or to be exact, I choose to be thankful because some things are out of our control. 

I thank God for the great things that happened in my life, things such as getting a job that allows me to travel and experience different cultures, having the opportunity to do what I love which is writing and blogging, and to meet new people as well as reunited with friends that I've not seen for a really long time. I also thank God for the unpleasant moments and experiences because they are priceless, a lesson learnt for me to prepare for my future self. Not only making me stronger and more mature, but it also taught me about humility and the gift of silence.   


Canon, PIXMA, MG7570, All-in-One, printer

Being in an age where technology abounds, memories are all in a form of soft copies. Not photographs, not photo albums. Who can blame us really, we love our smartphones, we love our social media, and we love our hard disk. We are all so digitalised that it's almost hilarious when I find myself being super excited when I see a photobooth that instantaneously prints my pictures. Interestingly, is not just because I like getting my pictures taken, I mean come on, I can selfie anytime with my iPhone, but it's the thrill of getting your pictures printed. 

So I'm glad to be able to collaborate with Canon Malaysia to reignite the photo printing culture in Malaysia. It's not just for the young people, it's for people of any age. And this time, you no longer have to run out to the shop to get it done, you can print them at the comfort of your home. 

The advancement of printing technology has made today's photo printing easier. Leveraging on this, if you have a mobile device with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, you can now print your photos by just tapping your devices to the printer. Otherwise, you can still connect your devices through Wi-Fi and print your pictures without an external/additional wireless router. 


I had the opportunity to experiment with the new Canon's PIXMA MG7570 All-in-One printer that offer features such as NFC and Wi-Fi. Obviously, I'm no android user, so I went all out with the AirPrint function like there was no tomorrow! Can you imagine how gleeful I was when I finally found the use of my print button after using iPhone 5 for about two years. It was exhilarating!


How to use AirPrint function for iPhone?
  1. Go to settings and connect your Wi-Fi to the printer.
  2. Get into your photo album and select one picture (or more) that you would like to print. 
  3. Then tap on the icon (box with and arrow pointing upwards) at the bottom left of the screen. It will appear as such on my picture (1) in the collage above. 
  4. Swipe the bottom to the left till you see a print icon, tap it. 
  5. Select your printer as shown in picture (2) and (3), and select the number of copies you would like to print before actually tapping on the print button. 
  6. Wa-lah. Sending for printing. 


If you've just switch the printer on, it will need a while to warm up, but once you got the first one out, it just keeps printing till the job is done. It is so quick and sooooooo easy! Literally, I was overwhelmed in delight for such straightforward gadget. It was fun!


The other great part of this printer is the 6 individual ink cartridges for a more wallet-friendly system, as well as its double front paper cassettes to load two different sizes or types of paper at the same time. Also, it comes in 3 colours, black, white and orange. I personally love the orange one as it has a matte finishing on the exterior.


Storing soft copy pictures is certainly more convenient but nothing beats the physical touch of a photograph. It's not only for you to show off to others on some of your proudest moments, it also serve as a reminder to you of your most precious memories and people in that season of your life.

Watch a video featuring us! 
Btw, the background is a bit noisy cause we were having too much fun that day! :D

Canon got back to me with the winner. Congratulations Suresh! His heart whelming story of visiting an orphanage in PJ as his 2014 precious memory melted the judges heart from Canon. Read his story below:

The best memory of 2014 that I cherish and remember so clearly would be my visitation to an orphanage in Petaling Jaya with a close friend of mine.We decided to buy the 30 kids at the place lunch by ordering 20 large pizzas and I also managed to get the Paddle Pop Ice-Cream man on the motorbike to drop as well. Those smiles and large squealing from the young kids would melt even the strongest person out there. Now with the photos I photographed on the day itself, having the Canon PIXMA MG7570 would enable me to print those priceless smiles and grins out in photos and put them into an album and distribute it to the Orphanage that we visited. 

I believe as a person, when we group up, the daily experiences over weeks, months and years do play an important role in in showing how much has change and coupled with the priceless memories of photographs to remind us of it. This might be a small but meaningful contribution a person can share but I believe this simple gesture would give these orphans a happy memory this festive season.
The little gestures and deed we do in Life makes the most amount of impact. Be True this festive season with The Canon's PIXMA MG7570 All-In-One printer.

Jacquelyn Ho said...

Hello! My first time leaving comment here (that shows how much I really wanted the printer T_______T) Here are my answers, hopefully i'm the lucky one! *fingers crossed*

1. Canon MG7570 AIO comes in 3 colours, which are black, white, and orange.

2. Near Field Communication (NFC) technology allows user to print and scan easily by tapping your smart device on the printer.

3. Best memory in 2014 would be visiting Paris and witnessed Eiffel Tower with my own eyes. However, my parents could not join me for this trip as they were busy, not to mention both of them have minor health issues which made it more difficult for them to travel long journeys. I wish I could have won this printer so I can print out all my travel pictures, including Amsterdam, Belgium, United Kingdom etc and tell them my exciting stories in my journey by showing them pictures as well. I mean, if they couldn't visit Europe, I'll then bring Europe to Malaysia... via printed pictures!

3. My most memorable moment in 2014 has got to be the birth of my nephew in October 2014. My brother and sis in law have been longing for a baby for 5 years and finally they have a beautiful boy this year. I'm not a person who is fond of hospitals and I always have this weird feeling whenever I step in the hospital. However this weird feeling totally disappeared when I went to the ward to visit my sis in law. It was very magical and touching when I saw her carrying her baby. And it was even more magical and unbelievable when she let me carry her baby. He looked so tiny and fragile! We took so many photos together and it was really a moment that I'll never forget!

3. The best 2014 memory that i cherish and would print out on the MG7570 as a keepsake would be a backpacking trip across Europe with my sisters. Given our varying interests, we have learned to compromise among ourselves to have a good time. We managed to explore interesting places and cities like the Eiffel Tower, The Colosseum, Van Gogh Museum and my favourite is touring the Tower of London. Reminiscing and feeling all sentimental from looking at all the photos that were taken during our trip would ignite how lucky I am to have a tight-knit sisters. The song "We Are Family" by Sisters Sledge has been our bonding theme song!

Definately my family photo. I took a lot of photos of my baby boy with my husband and I. And I would like to have them printed out and paste them on my own handmade photo book so I can give it to him when he is grown up. Giving him the advantage of browsing through all the memories he made with us parents when he is still a child is very important for us and him. Memories cannot buy nor repeated hence printing them out and making them into an album is a priceless and memorable gift for him.


Thank you JQ~ :)

3. My first trip to visit Sarawak earlier this year together with my partner, future parents-in-law and their bunch of aunty and uncle friends was very memorable. It was nerve wrecking at first thinking about it as my partner and I were the only young ones in that trip. But it turned out that not only was Sarawak an eye-opener, hanging out with the seniors taught us a lot about life as they were all a jolly bunch. We’ve captured many beautiful pictures together and it would be great to print them all out and keep them in an album. I am sure my future parents-in-law would be happy to see them. Heck, they may even make us print until we’re out of ink so that they can give the pictures away to those who were on the trip with us…hahaha.

Thanks for the give-away and wishing you a Merry Christmas!
