Tips For Songkran!

It's Songkran. And I surprise myself for not being in Bangkok this year. 

Oh well, for certain reasons, I have decided to skip the water festival. But that doesn't stop me from playing water, and having fun!

I called up 2 of my buddies, and we shot a video on tips to "surviving" Songkran. Or well you can call it "Tips For Songkran". 

Check it out below. And oh yes, the pink haired lady.. she's back! Haha!

Btw, here are some pics of us having fun after the shoot!

Oh Hey, I Spoke At Ninetology AirAsia Plane Livery Event!

Ninetology wrapped a AirAsia plane. Call that plastering its name across the plane end to end.

Cool branding in many ways, and definitely a "wow". 

And well, I was there, being part of the historic moment... taking some photos and well, giving a speech there too (oh wow!).

The plane.. is a plane, but when you have your brand name on it, it's definitely a proud moment. Congrats Ninetology in your dream of going ASEAN!

Me and teammate, +Eric Lee Huangshi . 

Me and PR mate and teammate Sofea. 

The big boss, CEO Sean giving his speech. Part of the main gist - Ninetology made RM180 million last year, and gonna make RM380 million in 2014. 

Oh and hey, it's me - giving my "speech". I shared about Our "So Wow For All" Marketing concept - which is about wow-ing fellow Ninetologians throughout this 2014. 

Me, the cosplayers, and the 4 colourful U9J1. Hello Catwoman, hello Elsa!

The 1st Wow - is the latest model, a full fledged Android phone.. which does everything a smartphone can do, but only for a price of RM199 (I know, wow!).

There's other Wows too. One of them is the #9Giveaway done every 9th of the month on Ninetology's FB. Last month, we gave out the 100 Doraemon event tickets (which was snapped up by the 1st hour.. yes wow!).

Upcoming will be a heartwarming webseries. Apart from the series, Ninetology will be going around old folks homes, and connecting the old folks with the loved ones by the Ninetology handsets (awwwww). 

There's a few other Wows for the year. But well, I didn't reveal further. For after all... the event was about the plane. And I think the plane needed its full glory :)

*I'm proud to have given the opportunity to speak at this event. The 2nd for me this year, so far.. the first being in MSMW. Yay!

*Btw for those of you who wanna watch my "speech".. here it is. I'm told by some, it's pretty awesome hahahaha! :P

Everything Is Awesome Parody (Lego Movie)

Lego Movie. That's totally AWESOME.

And so is the song - Everything Is Awesome.

I like the lyrics and the melody... and well, I did a parody out of it.

And here's my version. But with a changed title and well.. content.

Probably not for everyone, and pardon my singing. But oh well, hope you guys enjoy it one way or rather :)

So, here's, presenting Every Bear Is Awesome! Growl!

*2 song parodies so far. Now, what should my next song parody be? :P

Malaysia Social Media Week And Me

Work. Oh, it can get so busy.

Well, it doesn't takes a genius to guess that based on the postings on my blog (or lack thereof).

There's a lot ongoing. But these will be shared some other time - at the RIGHT time.

As for now, I wanna share one rather happy occasion where I was the speaker for one of the biggest digital media events in the country, Malaysia Social Media Week.

This happened last February - with me sharing the stage with some of the coolest digital media industry players - the most celebrated probably is Scott Eddy, MD of nine9nine.

There's also Evan Carmichael, another influential digital player. In fact, there is a full list of speakers, whom I've had the opportunity to share the stage with. 

Me and my speakers ready for our session.
Me and my co speaker, Nik, just before our speech

*But besides giving my speech, this event was an opportunity to network - making friends with new associates, and at the same time meeting up with "old friends". Truly a networking of sorts.

Apart from having the privilege to go on the stage and speak, I'm also happy to have met some new friends and reconnect with some old ones. Truly, it was like a social gathering of sorts.

I spoke about the digital community that my company is embarking on. The title of my speech - Make Yourself Epic. Gave it a superhero theme to it (well, not surprising heh :P ).

*On a side note, I also managed to try out the Google Glass on that event. Pretty awesome!
