Update: Congratulations to Wern Shen for winning the competition, and Cheesie, Huai Bin, we all had fun right? :D

I want to thank all my friends who came over to Blogathon KL to show their supports, it was very nice seeing you. There is less than two hours to go before the end of the whole ordeal and it would have been harder without seeing you guys showing up.

My ex girlfriend Sheryl was the first one who showed up on Friday morning, I haven’t been able to catch up with her since she came back from europe a few days ago. We meet up soon ok ;)

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture everyone’s photo, but here are those I managed. Thanks!

jaclyn and lainey

Jaclyn and Lainey showed up quite early on Friday, and voted for myself and cheesie each to show that they love us both equally much! Thank youuu

hong and kerol

My housemate horng and ex housemate kerol came over, I’ve known horng for 25 years, and kerol for at least 14 years! That’s like, very very long time ago.

audrey and timothy

Timothy and Audrey came over too around lunch break on Friday. She so cute, no?

huey fang

Huey Fang is too is my ex housemate, she drew me a campaign poster too. I’ve known her for over 15 years since we were in Penang. I really should visit her and her boyfriend Chan at their new house. It’s been too long.

Suan is of course, one of my favoritest friends. She bought me Starbucks! Suan is currently doing Original Boot Camp three times every week. She’s now lost quite a few pounds, healthier, and looking great! Thanks for coming suan!

Cheng Leong, the Nuffies, and more were here too, thank you everyone!

Another 1.5 hours to go and we are done. :D

30 years back, you could never find the two words, “technology” and “fashion” appearing in the same sentence. Technology was supposed to be very straight forward, always function over form, beige box, black screen, black keyboard.

Engineers were hired, but not designers or artists. It was the dark ages. And someone like haze would say “It hurts my eyes…”

Fast forward to current time, technology and fashion now goes hand in hand. No longer are laptops coming only in the old boring black rectangular form. Aesthetics has found a home in modern technology.

fashionable notebook
Lenovo ideapad S10-2

Take for example this netbook from Lenovo, the ideapad S10-2 actually comes with four different designs. Since this is something that is small enough to be brought to everywhere, it really doesn’t hurt at all to be looking good.

Also, the PR lady who is handling Lenovo, Radiance Leong, told me to write something about her. She is like, awesome and all, go to her blog to read about her ramblings.

I digressed…

I think I wouldn’t mind having a netbook for traveling at all. The blue one kinda looks neat.

3 hours and 10 minutes to go before the end of Blogathon!

After the relatively easy first task “be creative with 6 pictures” thingy yesterday, today’s task was something actually a quite a lot more challenging. We were asked to go into TANGS and find material to blog about “Fashion and Technology Entwined

So my topic, right?

At firs I was thinking about looking at people with high tech apparels, perhaps cloths that can change colors, t-shirt with neon display, or a dude with wearable laptops.

No such luck..

interview at Blogathon
the two lovely young ladies who agreed to be in the interview

Then I thought about making a video and interview shoppers at TANGS on the same topic. Brilliant idea, could make this whole thing very simple.

So I went into the store, with Blogathon camera crews right behind me and started asking around. About a dozen people rejected my approach T_T

Until the two lovely young ladies who agreed to the interview. *THANKS*

According to them, they make use of cellphones and MMS to get the latest fashion tips all the way from across the world. For example, Farah (I hope i get the name correct) has a cousin who lives in UK and would send her photos of latest trends from London.
However, they don’t really agree with wearing cellphones or parading iPods to make a fashion statement.
OK it’s 4:40pm now

OK it’s almost 5 p.m. now, I can do this!

The 9th post under Blogathon category has a topic that goes “What defines style?”. Again, the guy who’s more in tune with his tongue than his eyes sorta… struggle.

*went into a 30 minute thinking phase*

pattern_recognition

Style is usually associated with our visual sense. William Gibson’s novel – Pattern Recognition, is an exhibition of highly stylistic writings, and even though it is a book, the descriptions and the world created within feeds our visual cortex in a very profound way.

I digress, ok I didn’t know what I was talking about. Lets get back to something more direct. Like, being stylish!

ah, got style!?
stylish facial expression, failed

Ahh, this is something that Cha Bom, the stylist at TANGS is very good at. Today I am wearing this white t-shirt that says “Dead or Alive” in like, really stylish fonts.

Then there’s this very comfy and rather sweet looking David Mayer jacket that I think will make me look awesomely stylish when riding my RS 250, which of course is a very cool motorbike in itself.

OK!

*relax*

This is the 8th post on Blogathon KL project. It is about 11:35am right now, just slightly 10 more hours to go before the winner of the Ultra Slim Lenovo notebook and RM 500 TANGS voucher is announced.

toilet break at blogathon KL 2009

Let me share with you the 10 things (that I think!) you should know about Blogathon KL 2009.

  1. That is is at Level 2 TANGS Pavilion, KL
  2. Today is the last day, until 10 p.m. only!
  3. Snap a picture with any of us (preferably me, of course) and stand a chance to win a Lenovo notebook
  4. That I am wearing a jacket and the display window isn’t exactly very cooling
  5. Peeing every 3 hours isn’t exactly very practical, learn to make deals with your competitors to agree on extra toilet breaks
  6. non halal food isn’t allowed in the window display, but nobody said you can’t eat/drink (hello HB) during toilet breaks
  7. monitoring tweets, updating blogs, facebook, and trying to get public votes is hard work!
  8. I also found out that when you’re too busy, the Blackberry battery level will still be 80% full after more than 12 hours
  9. that I wished it was 3 girls and 1 guy instead of 3 guys and 1 girl, guess how’s the voting pattern? hehe
  10. and you should vote for me, or leave comments here over 20 words, so that I won’t lose with too big a margin to cheesie!

10 more hours to go, and I think lunch will be served pretty soon yey!
