It appears that Boss Stewie is not a blogger...

The Star came out with an article lately.

By NASA MARIA ENTABAN

IT’S amazing what some people would do to get special invites to a Malaysian Grand Prix party.

Avid bloggers and blog-readers hunted high and low in a race that began in the physical world, which then moved on to cyberspace, before they ended up racing to a physical finish line.

The event, dubbed “Spot The Raving Blogger” began on March 1 and will culminate at one of Kuala Lumpur’s most prominent landmarks, the KL Tower.


On the first day of the race, participants were given a clue in The Star that identified a local blogger. On that individual’s blog, more clues were posted which directed the participants to other blogs, over the course of 10 days.

The last clue, which read, “A coffee house in the new wing of 1-Utama” led the participants to a final location – Starbucks Coffee at 1-Utama Shopping Complex where the five bloggers were waiting to be identified at 1.45pm.

Race participants reached the location panting, after they had run all around the shopping complex in search of the right outlet. The first 50 participants to arrive each won passes to the Speedzone Tour 2007, the official Malaysian Grand Prix party.

“I think this event is a fun way to give out passes, instead of the usual slogan-writing contests,” one of the featured bloggers, Suanie (www.suanie.net), said. “The clues are a new and interesting way to get people to join in.”

The five bloggers were selected based on the popularity of their blogs as well as their blog themes.

Suanie, who has been blogging for several years, usually writes on music, lifestyle and clubbing – which made her an ideal candidate for the contest.

The others who were involved were food blogger KY, 29 (www.kyspeaks.com); lawyer Xes, 26 (www.xes.cx); accountant Fireangel, 27 (www.fireangelism.com); and karate practitioner Gareth, better known as Shaolin Tiger, 28 (www.shaolintiger.com).

One of the race participants, Nigel Low, followed the clues all the way and was thrilled to win the free passes.

“I’m also glad I’m finally getting to know the bloggers in person,” the 31-year-old human resource manager said. “This contest is a very interesting and new way of doing things.”

Low is one of the many people who will be partying at the KL Tower terrace event, on April 7, which will feature local DJ extraordinaire Joey G alongside international DJs such as D-formation, Marco V and Yoji Biomehanika.

Yep everyone!

I just happened to be there at 1-Utama that day to show a little support to Kim, Gareth, Suanie, KY, XES and the group... and look.. I had my picture taken.

Not because I'm a fehmes blogger... cuz I'm not.. but because... I'M A PARTICIPANT.

Boss Stewie is not a blogger... nono he's not.. if he is... he's too tiny to get anyone's attention.... I'm lucky to have the remaining 8 of you readers out there that read my blog.

To my 8 readers, thank you very very much for reading my blog.

Boss don't merajuk lo.. I long time already boycott The Star. Last time they came to my school cos we donated some stuff to Johor flood victims. I was one of the people standing on my tippy toes so that I could get my shot. The photographer took lots of pics (of me)! But you know what? They chose the one withOUT me in it.

Well what do you expect when you run a blog on "blogger#infinite.blogspot.com" ?! You have your own company for crying out loud, post your blog on your own webspace, ya lazy bastard!

Publicity still a publicity, boss. Did you gave your business card to the reporter?

Shaolin said...

Anyway boss, maybe you're too handsome and the reporter is jealous of your looks thats why he don't include you in his story.

Boss Stewie said...

vicky: eh i'm a blogger first! entrepreneur second :P

chapree: hehehe no ler i didn't... i was there for fun... not to make friends with a reporter

giovoni said...

I've read about the other "co"... and boy things seem to be getting hot, very hot - like the sensation when you realised that you have eaten too much cili padis coming out from the other end! Sangat panas! Like watching a movie where the hero is trying outwit the mud-slinging villain. Like David & Goliath. Like Austin Powers & Dr Evil....oh wait that is a wrong comparison.
