Penang Bridge International Marathon

Posted by: popoyan  /  Category: Misc

penang_marathon

Penang Bridge International Marathon or in short PBIM was successfully held on 22-Nov-09 (Sunday). It was a successful event from my point of view. My dear Seong Seong is the one that developed the online registration system for them and this system helps the event a lot especially during the collection week (16-Nov-09 to 21-Nov-09).

See below for how the collection counter for PBIM 2009:

PBIM_0249

PBIM_0305

Look at the picture below, do you see the head of an alien on this laptop? Yes, you are right, this is the so called “Alienware” sponsired by Dell for this event. Will need to give it back to them after the event. Heard that it worth around RM10k per unit. It weight around 4kg per unit. Damn heavy.

_MG_0331

PBIM had developed a portal purposely for this event at http://www.penangmarathon.gov.my. This portal actually display all the information and updates using Joomla! It is hosted with our company – Exabytes. They are hosted on Semi Dedicated server all these while and we have then migrated them into dedicated server due to a sudden increase in website traffic 1 week prior to the event.

We (Exabytes) were given a sales booth at PBIM Expo as we are one of their partner in running this event. This is a 20ft x 20ft booth. Is a very big booth for us as all our previous exhibition booth were normally 3m x 3m booth or 6 ft table booth. All our previous exhibition experience were indoor exhibition and this is our first time experience having booth at outdoor booth.

PBIM004

Inside picture above is Marccus.

Due to the booth is just outside QueensBay Mall and it is just besides the sea, the wind is so strong that even the elephant backdrop keeps falling. We ended up have to remove the backdrop and keep it. In otehr words, we have only 1 streamer (standing banner) which we tie it on one of the chair to avoid it falling.

_MG_0366

We were given this booth at the very last minutes and I have only few days to prepare for what to promote in this booth and for our designer to get ready with the brochure design + printing. Everything was in a hurry.

My sincere thanks to my designer and all my team member (sales team and nonsales team) who have helped out in this sales booth daily from 11am to 9pm from 17-Nov-09 to 20-Nov-09 and 11am from 21-Nov-09 to 11am 22-Nov-09 (on-stop). You are all very awesome.

I have been on duty as usual in office during office hour and continue to assist in sales booth for whole week. On event Saturday, I have wake up at 8am as I need to fetch Seong Seong to the collection counter in the morning as we have only 1 car for now which we need to share. After that, I have went to USM hostel to fetch my cousin and her stuff to store in my house as USM is on semester break now. After that continue with some of my work before leave my hosue to PBIM booth around 3pm.

From there, I’m then on duty till 11am on Sunday and reach home, take bath and sleep only on 1pm. If you calculate them carefully, I have not sleep for around 29 hours. Amazing. I have break my own record for not sleeping in more than 24 hours.

Guess what? another amazing thing happen in my life. I slept from 1pm (22-Nov-09) till 7am (23-Nov-09) – total of 18 hours. Break 2 record in within 1 days time. Keng ler !!!

Below is picture of myself and myself explaining to visitor to our booth.

Learn few things in this blogger and law forum.
-
never made statement which is straight to the point.
- twist your sentense or make it into question style.
- let your reader to interpret or imagine on their own so that you do not invite trouble to yourself
- when you receive any request to remove something from your blog, proceed to remove it to avoid court case
- any simple court case will cost you minimum 30k to 50k minimum of “RM” (Real Money).
- 1 + 1 will nto definately equal to 2 in law.

Eddie has given us a joke before the end of the forum:-

“A” is having a court case and is searching for a lawyer to assist him in his case. He went to first lawyer and ask the first lawyer 1 question.
A: 10 + 10 equal how much?
Lawyer 1: 20
A: TQ (and walk away from lawyer 1′s office)

A went to second lawyer.
A:10 + 10 equal how much?
Lawyer 2: (close the door) How much you want the answer to be?
A: deal, you will be my lawyer.

Hope you enjoy this joke as well.

eLawyer – Exabytes Penang Bloggers & Law Forum 2009

Posted by: popoyan  /  Category: Seminars

Are you a blogger?

If you are not a blogger, do you read some one else’s blog?

Do you sometime feel like some of the blogger are talking too much or talking on some sensitive topic? Do blogger really allowed to talk anything they want? No law controlling them? Have you ever think of what is the limitation of a bogger when they are writing their blog?

Ops, sound like I have got a lot of question to ask today. In fact, all these question has been in my mind for quite a long time but I did not really go dig out the answer.

Good news for all the blogger in Penang or friends from Northern Malaysia. Exabytes is now working together with eLawyer in organizing Bloggers & Law Forum 2009  in Penang.

You will now have a chance to learn what  a blogger can write and what they should not write. I will be attending this forum on this Saturday (27-Jun-09) in USM.
