july recap

It's end of July, and let's just see what happened in the 7th month of the year 2007.

Sibu Trip: 3-4 July.
I had to fly over to Sibu for a night's stay to replace a faulty power pack for the server. Work, gah!

Blades World 2007 @ One World Hotel, KL: 11-12 July.
It took me less than a year to go back KL, sooner than I expected.

This trip is the trip I'd complain the least. I made my first official trip, which doesn't require me to work. This is what I call fun.

Unlike my other trips, I need not to wait till after-5, and shut down servers, and start working on the server. I love this the most. Sit back, relax and enjoy. Just go there and attend conference.

The only complain was. the trip was too short.

One night only.

10th Rainforest World Music Festival @ Sarawak Cultural Village, Kuching: 13-15 July
My first visit to the annual world-class event in Kuching - Rainforest World Music Festival.

It was great!

I'll definitely come again next time.

And next year, I hope I can extend my exposure to the media/press. :D

Bloggers' Meet @ Bestberry: 21 July
Dropped by to this meet after driving over to office on a Saturday afternoon. -_-

Click Irene's and Annna's for write up to that. (Note: Annna's new URL is changed to this.)

Bloggers' Gathering @ Sue's (by invite only): 22 July
Sue invited us over to her place for dinner. She cooked us some really delicious dishes.
Thanks Sue.

Bridal Fair - Circle of Amour @ Level 5, Permata Carpark, Kuching: 27-29 July

A place you can see more DSLRs than you can ever imagine. -_-"

Tuesday, July 24, 2007


There are so much to talk about lately.

Malaysian FA, Malaysian Football, 'Concerns' with the use of English as teaching medium, Politics, Critics & Many more.

I wish I could write on those, I want to...


Then again, will my voice be heard with my write up? Will they even bother?
Things are not well.

Not even for me.

I need to think about what I do now, and should seriously think about it.I need to plot a better future now.

Till then. Ciao.

the week in recap.

Rainforest World Music Festival (RMWF) came, and almost gone now. Today's the last day for the great annual event in Sarawak.

I just had my first ever visit to RWMF last night. It was great! Updates and photos to follow soon.

It has been quite a busy week for me.

Early in the week

I've been trying to get a server up and running in the office, and is still trying. Hopefully, all can be done by tomorrow. I've been trying to get help from the manufacturer's technical support, but it sounded like they're not well-equipped with the knowledge to assist.

I had to dig the dirt most of the time to get the solution. Crap.

I spent a night in Cititel Midvalley, KL on Wednesday.

The idea was to attend seminar/conference in Bandar Utama the next morning. Details and update on this may come on later.

Spent time working Saturday, before zooming to my very first visit to RWMF. And, I liked it a lot!

Photos and updates to come later.

Meanwhile, you should see these little ads on our local newspaper - The Borneo Post. Earlier, Sheer Unique Mobile Boutique had launched a promotion for Nokia Communicator's latest family addition - Nokia E90

Nokia E90 Communicator

Next in line is Nokia 8600 Luna. Sheer Unique is the first in Kuching to have Luna in their stock. Check out the latest sleek, stylish mobile set from Nokia -- only at Sheer Unique.

Be first to see, at only Sheer Unique.

I'm back in Kuching, and I was greeted with this banner when I touched down on KIA.

Ladies and gentlemen, it's here.

Rainforest World Music Festival, the 10th edition.

new mobile experience in town

It is finally here.

The new mobile experience has arrived in town on 29/06/2007.

The new buzz in town - Sheer Unique, brings a new level of experience to Kuching. Sheer Unique mark their stamp on new mobile lifestyle with their conceptual showroom, showcasing the mobile phones to the consumers.

In conjunction of their grand opening, Sheer Unique had held a mobile fair from 29 June - 1 July 2007 at DUBS Commercial Complex. Among those present at the grand opening were Kenny Sia and John Lee. Too bad, I didn't get to take their actual photos.

Sheer Unique brings in quite a range of mobile phones, which are worth checking out. Among the hottest items in town are HTC Touch. HTC are the manufacturers for Dopod mobile phones, and have recently signed acquisition agreement with Dopod International.

You can check this print ad out on our local newspaper The Borneo Post.

More product introductions to follow in upcoming posts. Please do drop over at Sheer Unique to check out the HTC phone. It's really cool with the TouchFLO™ feature, which is quite a breakthrough in the touch screen technology.

Experience it yourself only at Sheer Unique, your mobile boutique in town.

They are located at DUBS Commercial Complex (Behind HSBC Building).

Short update.

My time was robbed away from me during the weekend, after being occupied by other issues rising over the weekend. I couldn't find time to sit down and process my photos and update the blog. Sigh.

How I wish I can change this real soon.

End Note: Again, I hope I can post new entries later today.

happy birthday

Happy birthday to Yin in UK!

I was in Sibu on 3 - 4 July, and I have just completed processing the photos from my last trip out to Bako, as well as Sarawak Cultural Village's.

I've got a few posts pending in the waiting list now.

I hope to clear them up soon. I'm lagging behind time!


p/s: some photos.

star of july

July is here.

And, we're certainly thinking of Rainforest World Music Festival, held in Sarawak Cultural Village, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.

Rainforest World Music Festival is a three-day-world class event. On the day time, you have music workshop conducted, and when night falls, you will have concert performances.

I have never been to any of the past editions, but words I have heard from, are mostly praises and positive feedback.
I can't wait to shoot the event. If only I can get a 'Media Access Pass', or pass with similar credentials then I can roam freely and shoot better photos. :) I wish.

Be sure to mark your calendar and NOT miss this event!

six months past 2007

June has just ended. We're six months through 2007.

And, I'm feeling lately. I'm having hard time finding the right motivation to keep myself going on.

I wish I can be like this cat. Sleep more, and relax.

Story behind the photo: This cat was caught napping on top of a rack/shelve just outside a shop at the Main Bazaar, Kuching

More updates to come soon. Latest after my trip to Sibu on Tuesday.
