Call it whatever you want but being made a Lumix Shutterbug has been the best thing that ever happen in my life, as far as being a blogger and active social media user is concerned! Thanks to it I could use my Lumix G1 when I really needed it, take for example, when I was invited to the press conference for Arthur’s 250th Birthday night directly via the event’s PR consultant, thanks Grey!
After inviting Yapthomas.com and Hanson, my awesome ‘blogger’ friend (inside joke, lol) we were whisked to KL Hilton at 4.30pm where some 70-odd numbers of the media were present, all waiting for the arrival of the stars who certainly took their time!
I spotted a few familiar faces including my good friend Azri from Universal Studios, Elaine Chow from Grey, Kimcun and ShaolinTiger, last but not least Mr Arthur Guinness Himself. Of course I got to know a few other people as well to work with my projects, it was really good fun!
Having my G1 allowed me to go to places that I don’t usually dare if I only had my Lumix LX2, including going so close to them. Throughout the time I could never explain the luck I felt within me 😀
A press conference, or a media conference, after all, isn’t something easy to have in the first place. This really shows that whatever little branding I managed to do for myself really does work! Come on bloggers, you have the power!
Yes, power, like this Mr Arthur Guinness wannabe aka Kenny Sia who really did take everyone’s attention. No wonder he’s Malaysia’s number one lifestyle blogger eh? Bloody daring I say!
And this shot is for all Fergie fans out there. I was still considering a dare from a friend to ‘do’ something with her that will surely put me up in many magazines all around the world. But I chickened out 😛 No wonder I not fehmes laaaaaa hehe
But to be honest, all you have to do is believe in yourself. I thought I’ve gotten my tickets to Arthur’s birthday yesterday night already, a week before the event itself. But I did not, and thankfully, did not waver and be desperate. The next thing I know, I killed two birds with one stone: a call from the PR asked me to attend the media conference, at the same time offering me a Media All-Access pass for the night! I don’t know what garnered the call, or why me, but I’d like to be appreciative and say THANK YOU!
And so, it was a perfect start to the evening that was about to come, a live performance from the Black Eyed Peas who were totally rocking the event with their top hits that EVERYONE can sing along to. It was truly an awesome night, which deserves its own post, surely.
I love you Black
Eyed Peas. I may still be too shy to come forward for a picture, so this is the least I could do for now haha. Now, I’ve got a feeling, that tonight’s gonna be a good night, that tonight’s gonna be a good night, that tonight’s gonna be a good GOOD night!
So who’s with me? Stay tuned for the ALL ACCESS MEDIA PASS pictures! /gloats
ps- sorry for the obsessive gloating, it isn’t often that I get something like this on my lap hehe
pss- for more pictures please go to my facebook album!
