Penang Bloggers' Meet

Ok I've been extremely busy lately because my leetle dotcom is due for launch anytime soon and we've been working overtime.

But knowing that my readers expect something to read every day they log on, let me give you a quick update.

In the midst of all the busy work, yesterday afternoon I found myself at e-Gate's Starbucks.
I've heard much about this Penang Blogger Meet but I was never really sure if I was going. But thanks to Alcheong who insisted I go, I went and had a very good time!

Now you would think that the Penang Blogger's Meet would be tiny compared to the ones in KL.

Chanlilian once told me that she organized a Penang Bloggers' Meet before and only 5 bloggers showed up.But at yesterday's meet... there were over 50!!!

And of the 50, there were the young generation of bloggers who were ever so energetic.
And a couple of ancient ones like Sapiensbryan and I who walked and talked at a much slower pace than the rest.

Then of course, there were the LADIESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!
And the group of girls who told me that they stopped eating taugeh after reading my post on it.

And of course there was Chanlilian who gave every blogger there a big ang pow!

And Jolene who was treated pretty much like a VIP considering she had always been one of the organizers for the KL Blog Meets.
Oh and lets not forget BRENDA... WHO IS FUKING HOT!!!

PS: Mae, a lot of people were asking about "The Couple Who Met on my Blog".

After soooo long and after visiting netccentric, is your company an integrated website branding company? And is nuffnang sharing the same office?

First thing first: for an entrepreneur, I must congratulate you for being brave enough to venture into the unknown which is a very scary place for salaried workers. It takes guts and a lot of coconuts and rambutans to do all these.

Now for the observations that might seem a bit potong stim:

a) Tim, you are a big fan of Apple/Macintosh and everything that embodies its founder, right? An analogy would be why did the founder name the computer business Apple, why name a company after a fruit, gila-ke? Which brings to netccentric and nuffnang, remember coconuts and rambutans?

b) The mission, vision and what you do, all these need a lot of spicing up or down. Try to focus on what you want to achieve and do it directly. Cut out the unnecessary adjectives.

c) If you want to be serious, be serious. If you want to be fun, be fun. But not in a rojak kinda way. Choice of colours, fonts, layout - compare this to Apple, notice their font, notice their choice of white. All these are all well thought out and conceptualised. You need to visualise a strong brand for you company that people can identify with. Granted, the Apple brand evolved through the years but as always it will remain an Apple. Can you tell me now without asking the web designer, what is the font used and what is the pantone code?

and etc, etc, etc but with some tweaking, I think you can succeed. All the best!

andrew, u mean me?

im not in penang, how to go? classes start today.

Boss Stewie said...

maniacz; HAHAHAH it's a joke lar.. but okok i better take it down in case u all misunderstand :P

kristin: u don't need a blog to join! just come anywayz

william: hahah no lar.. lilian gave us cash

pc: HAHAHHA its a good thing that u don't eat taugeh

ultimate:: EWWWWWwww.. i actually love golden needle mushroom!!!

clem: LOL ignorance is bliss

cely: LANSI!!!

andrew: hahaa no lar i took only a few pics with her

anonymous: actually, netccentric is just a holding company that we use to run another business that will soon launch. The website is not meant to attract any attention or receive much traffic, it's just meant to be an information only website. We didnt design the website ourselves cuz we didnt want to divert any resources to buildign that website, we outsourced it to another company that obviously didn't do a great job on it.
