  • Waboba High in the Sky

    Post by Jordan on April 5th, 2011

    It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Waboba Street!

    You can imagine the amount of eyebrows raised when 50 people came together in Guangzhou to join us for our first flashmob and bounced 100 Waboba Street balls high in the sky. At a given signal, everyone threw the new Street balls as hard as they could against the ground to make them bounce. Given the picture above, it’s safe to say some people gave their balls massive air! Fortunately, the Street balls are soft, so there were no tears, only lots of happy faces and laughter!

    We also hosted a Waboba game competition with the Street and handed out free samples to all the kids. Some of which quickly invented their own game on rollerskates. It was awesome to grab attention from people walking by and to have them take a break and join us for some fun. It truly was a great day for all and we hope to launch more flashmobs in cities around the world. Don’t worry, there will be a video coming soon!

  • Bionic Salesman Bounces Through Customs

    Waboba Thailand Road TripThe Bionic Salesman
    A Journey around Thailand

    GUANGZHOU – My journey begins with the discovery that the Bangkok Bounce website has been blocked in China. I can’t imagine what could be so subversive about a website about bouncy balls. Ah, but maybe they think Bangkok Bounce sounds like something else altogether. Shame on you, censors. This is a family site.

    I am traveling with the largest wheelie suitcase I could find. Considerably overweight, and containing a mass of medical equipment, a toothbrush, two pairs of underwear and one T-shirt, it is as stubborn and immovable as a bloated sheep. Apart from a computer, a camera and three Waboba balls, that is all I have with me. There’s no space for clothes. I am like a snake sloughing off its skin. (Read more…)

  • Latin food in Guangzhou

    第三次公司聚餐,不过这次有8个人。

    昨夜七点多到达餐厅的时候,有些吃惊。里面空荡荡的,人影屈指可数。记得第一次来的时候,人多得排出门外来了,不过当时是周末。

    On the first Wednesday of each month the company heads out to indulge in the world famous foods of Canton(Guangzhou). This Wednesday we made an extra trip together with Anna and Jan from the Swedish office and I thought I should leave a review of our stay at Latin Grill House.
