I’ve been a busy bee last week, and that explains why I’m lacking in updates. Nonetheless, rather than making one post each for every event I’ve attended, here’s some bits and pieces of all the events, with words which inspired me.
THE TOMORROW LEADERS SUMMIT (TLS) 2011 @BCCK, KUCHING
Had a discussion with about 36 NGO’s and government bodies in regards to the TLS 2011, and managed to put in the phrase which sounds something like this: “The Sarawak Bloggers intends to help Sarawak as much as it can. Many people do not realize that what they do online can indirectly effect our state, and we are keen in changing this to make bloggers, and readers more matured in their judgment, and therefore molding future Sarawakian leaders. We also intend to be the voice of the normal people, and highlight issues on the ground so that someone ‘up there’ can take notice and do something.” Someone from the Sarawak State Office agreed with me, and Anne said I did brilliantly by saying those words. Yeah, ‘kembang hidung skejap’ 😛
THE TLS BLOGFERENCE @ STARBUCKS KUCHING INTERNATIONAL
We had a good discussion on who would be great to come for TLS, and I suggested Dato’ Idris Jala would be a great example for many Sarawakians. Topics ranged from politics, music, blogging & social media. I couldn’t remember who said it, but the words went like this: “People think that bloggers are people with horns, ready to pounce and take down anyone at anytime, but here you guys are building something positive“. That was music to my ears 😛
SARAWAK TOURISM BOARD MEDIA APPRECIATION NIGHT @ ABSOLUTE TRIBAL, THE HILLS MALL
Andrew, a standing comedian from KL said to me “If you just started (Sarawak Bloggers) in March, and now, you are invited to an event (The STB Media Appreciation Night) like this by Sarawak Tourism Board, you must be doing something very right“. His words were indeed inspiring, and on top of that, you guys must catch Andrew if you do go down to KL. He made me laugh till I had tears in my eyes, and my belly hurt like I had my balls kicked. Check them out at thecomedyclubkl.
10 YEARS REUNION-CLASS OF 2000
Attended the 2000 class reunion. I think 30 of us came all in our own definition of 7pm. Anyway, it was good catching up with old friends although I wish more could come. 10 years is a long time, and it was evident how some changed so much. Hope to do yet another one in 5-10 years again, on a grander scale, although getting everyone together is never easy.
STARBUCKS CHEER PARTY @SPRING MALL, KUCHING
I was late for this, but I managed to talk to the marketing manager, Mr Salleharon which was pleased to further work with the Sarawak Bloggers and help organize events in Starbucks. Now, who can turn down Starbucks? Anyway, the Cheer party was a huge success, and the kids do look happy. Leading the way must be the super uber duper bigger kids in Gary, Fahri, Ivan, Norman and Radhi(?).
I think that’s all for now. Will blog on more stuff after the holidays, or make that, after new year as I will be taking a short hiatus from blogging for Christmas, staying in my village’ which is 10 minutes from Bau town, but still without no internet and cell phone connection.
With that said, here’s a photo for you guys:
Ho.. Ho… Ho….
