Pikom PC Fair @ Kuching

" Birthday Note: Happy Birthday to a friend who celebrates his 25th birthday today. "

PIKOM PC Fair came to Kuching to conclude their events in year 2006. The fair is on the run from 8-10 December at Level 5, Permata Car Park Building, Kuching.

It was only my second time vising Kuching's edition. I had been going to KL's fair several times, and only once in Malacca years ago. Size wise, the one in Kuching is no where to be compared to the one held in KL Convention Center.

In Kuching, we do not seem to have the venue same class as KL Convention Center to start with. Also, I do not think we have enough participating exhibitors to fill up half of the hall even we have a KL Convention Center here. Of course, comparing Kuching to Kuala Lumpur, is quite unfair. It's almost a David versus Goliath comparison.

Nevertheless, I still think we need a bigger, nicer venue to hold upcoming PC Fair in future. At least introduce an exhibition hall. It's really a crowd puller. Those models you see in Kenny's latest entry, are taken in the showrooms/exhibition halls.

Current state of PC Fair in Kuching, it seemed more or less like the IT Fair I had during my varsity days. Those who were in Multimedia University (Malacca Campus), you should know about this fair brought in by IT Society back then.

There wasn't much to be talked about in PC Fair here, not much worth mentioning until..

.. power failure...

The power went off suddenly, drawing boo and jeer from the crowd. It was really embarrassing. The organizing committees took quite a while to resume the power. An announcement followed after. The exhibitors are reminded not to overload the power-point assigned to them.

All new DSLR from Canon, EOS 400D.

Being still unemployed, I have not got the money to spend and I have nothing else to fancy about. I didn't really buy much, only got a decent power supply to replace my broken one. (Currently using a power supply with lower power as temporary solution to keep my machine running).

Other captures from the fair...

Free online game. Free CDs. Anyone to game with me tonight?

Overall, PIKOM needs to raise the standard for the Fair in Kuching. There are still a lot more improvement to be done. I believe they need to get a better venue first. Or, probably a better venue need to be provided first.

Nevertheless, the patrons to the fair seem to be content. At least there is one..

Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It doesn't show signsof stopping
And I've bought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kissgoodnight
How I'll hate going out in the storm!
But if you'll really hold me tight
All the way home I'll be warm

The fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we're still goodbying
But as long as you love me so
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
