CommunicAsia 2009

This week, I've been to CommunicAsia 2009, the 20th international communications and information technology exhibition and conference. It was a great experience for me to explore what are the existing and new IT products, services and solutions, surrounding with sexy models and technologies.

Apart from Singapore companies, the exhibitors also came from Austrialia, Brunei, Canada, Malaysia, Korea, China, France, Germany, Russia and so on. Let's look at what are the interesting stuffs and comments I found from the exhibition.

1) Singtel Booth - Driving F1 Simulation
Perhaps Singtel was one of the heaviest investment in this exhibition, as they managed to get in a F1 simulator to let the vistors to try on. The F1 itself will vibrate, move left, right, forward & backward according to the racing track, just like you driving a real F1. I didn't manage to try it due to long queue. Anyway, it looks fun and good experience.

The most impressive game of the exhibition - F1 Simulator

2) Yahoo! Booth - Nothing surprising me
Yahoo! joined the exhibition for the 1st time, and they have a private party on the 1st day, which I was not invited. They offer light foods, alcohol & beverages but it looks like nothing suprising me. Perhaps this booth is the shortest time I spent in overall.

Yahoo! Booth. Sorry, there was no promoters found.

3) Blackberry
Blackberry was having a short seminar and party on the 2nd day. The booth is displaying the latest Blackberry models, which I'm not really into it, including the Blackberry girls.

4) LG and Samsung - Impressive mobile models & promoter uniform
LG and Samsung, as usual, displaying the latest mobile models to the visitors. Their booths are very big and most of the new models look cool. They hired many sexy promoters with nice looking uniform to explain the features of every new models. The most impressive part was LG hired a professional team of Korean street dancers to perform dancing twice a day. Thumbs up.

5) Telekom Malaysia (TM) - Lousiest booth compared to the booths above
Not to say I'm not supporting my own country's booth, but it's really sucks. The promoters they hired are sucks and unprofessional. They look like the teenagers on the streets and most of the time sit there and not doing their works. And the only game TM offered is the lousy soccer game. Well, may be I'm wrong. Move on, please!

This is the soccer game, my friend.

6) CBoss - Impressive promoters
Perhaps CBoss is nothing much to display on it's technology, but the promoters. In fact, I don't really understand why they setup a stage just for a few Russian promoters carrying the Cboss board and stand there for the whole day. Perhaps they want to promote the name of CBoss? I don't manage to ask their Boss anyway.

Overall the exhibition is successful, many exhibitors but the crowds seem a bit weak this year, perhaps due to economy recession. I'm looking forward the coming CommunicAsia and hope they will do it even better. Cheers.

How to Look for New Blogging Topic?

I know, I know. I was missing in action for 2 weeks, due to I was on vacation in the 1st week, and I was lazy of blogging on the 2nd week. Very sorry about that, as I'm running out of interesting topic to be posted here to share with you all at this moment. I believe it should be the hardest time that blogger running out of topic? Perhaps it's related to my lousy lifestyle I have at this moment.

Whatever it is, topic is always there, but depends whether we want to spend time and effort to write the topic out. So how do we find source of topics in order to keep our blog running with new post? There are a few ways perhaps we can look into. Before that, it is important that what category we are blogging about, and then we will find the right source from there. For me, I write about anything I'm interested. So I'll based on my own suggestions for the following ways.

This is the blogging topic statistic generated at 2007.

If you are a social person and always attending certain events, campaign, functions etc, you won't have much problem in updating your blog, because the event itself will drive you to your topic. Perhaps the best candidate would be Kennysia, as he is always invited to attend certain events and on vacation. Sometimes, he also asked to write an advertisement blog from advertisors. He is a pretty success blogger with interesting topics sometimes.

If you are non-social person or prefer to stay at home, a hot and fresh topic can always find out from the Internet, such as online newspaper, magazine, youtube and other people's blogs. For example, swine flu, or perhaps the latest celebrity news of Paris Hilton vs Cristiano Ronaldo.

This is my favorite latest news.

If both are none of our business, perhaps we can look into sharing of what we know or expertise in. For example, an IT engineer will has a lot to share and talk about IT outlook and technologies. Or a salesman has a lot to talk about the value of the product & services. That would be even easier when there is a news related your field or expertise is coming out, you may comment about it according to your opinion. Sometimes, it is good to insert some golden story or jokes, we all love to story and jokes, don't we?

Anyway, whatever we write, it doesn't mean there is a reader. So identify readers need, monitoring and marketing our blog is vital. But seriously I don't have much time to do so at this moment, so I wish you all bloggers good luck and have a nice weekend. ;)
