Around the World with Rilakkuma, Canon!

9:29:00 PM

What is Rilakkuma? Rilakkuma is a fictional character produced by the Japanese company San-X. The name is a combination of rirakkusu, a Japanese transliteration of the English word "relax" and "kuma". 

This "bear in the relaxing mood" is always lazy and relaxed anytime, anywhere, moving at his own pace. Impossible to hate, you too, will feel lazy and relaxed when you're watching Rilakkuma, who is not a real bear - it's a bear suit with a zipper on the back. What is inside is a secret!

Perhaps is not a recently happening thing that people has been bringing their travel companion, "Nuri-Dori" or more commonly known as ToyTravel to travel around the world with them. Well, I don't deny that ToyTravel is sweeping the world off its feet! Just like me, I've been bringing my favourite toy to travel together too :) I love taking pictures with my toys in the airport and airplane.

While waiting in Jeju Island's Airport, they are my best companion xD

If you're not in the ToyTravel trend, and you don't own any toy, you could kick things off now to have Rilakkuma as your next travelling companion! Partnering with the much-loved Rilakkuma, Canon joins the bandwagon by encouraging users to artistically incorporate this trend in their photos and at the same time, inspire creativity among social media users. What's more? Canon is having a special edition EOS M10 box set, bundled with a limited edition 24cm Rilakkuma plush toy!

The EOS M10 is the newest addition to Canon's EOS M range of high performance mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras. As the most compact and lightweight in the series, EOS M10 is the perfect camera to bring along on all types of adventures! With its large 18.0-megapixel APS-C sensor and fast Hybrid CMOS AF II system, users can now capture excellent quality photos of spontaneous moments with no more missed opportunities.

Designed for perfect selfies, the Self Portrait mode features a one-touch beautification shortcut that offers a skin smoothing effect. Its Wi-Fi feature also allows seamless sharing on multiple social media platforms. With optical jackets ( sold separately ) in a range of striking colours such as classic Navy, a sweet hue of Pink, whimsical Aqua and monochrome Border, users can now style and customise the camera according to their fun personalities.

You can now own a Canon EOS M10 starting from RM 1999.00, check out more here EOS M10 Kit ( EF-M15-45mm), EOS M10 Kit II ( EF-M15-45mm & EF-M22mm), and EOS M10 Kit III (EF-M15-45mm & EF-M55-200mm).
