(Event) H-Artistry Finale 2012 At MIECC

Author:

This post is not only super late but it has no comic in it. Sorry to everyone who is expecting to see it. This year’s H-Artisty had came to a closing last 3rd November 2012. It was the end of their trilogy series and with one their most impressive artists’ line ups as well. I had a chance to go to this finale and now here I am reporting my experience in the finale of one of the most hyped party of the year.

Upon reaching Mines International Exhibition and Convention Centre, I was impressed with how the hall looks. The tunnel decorated with strips of LED and black cloth had create a nice party ambient to set the mood.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Author:

Samsung had tremendous success with its Samsung Galaxy Note back in late 2011 and early 2012. It was a surprise to me actually because I initially thought having a 5″ screen would be a major turn off for most people. But in the end, that is also one of their main selling points in making it successful. So how do you top a phablet that proved to be successful for your company? Apparently it was to make it even bigger but still usable as a phone. I simply cannot brain it but I would love to see how they works.

I was invited to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 launch and to be honest, probably one of the WORST launch events that I had to go through. Sorry to say this but the event was filled with so much unforgivable flaws, I could not help but to blog about it. The Samsung Galaxy S3 launch was quite good but this is quite far from that standard.

First of all, the parkings. I could not understand why would they chooses a venue which car parks are way lesser than the expected cars present for the event. Cars were parked every where and since I arrived late due to the horrendous traffic and terrible rain, I did not had a place to park my car. I somehow even felt 20% of the parked cars belong to the staffs rather than guests. What irritates me the most is the attitude of RELA members in charge of the car park. The car park is full, they did not give any warning beforehand for me that the car park is full and they decided to stand there and talk while looking at me foolishly entering a full car park, meeting dead ends and reversing from there. When asked about empty car parks, only they will tell that the car park is full. Really professional.

Oddest way to dine, AT the walkway

Look at how packed the people are

You expect a lot media members and guests but you did not provide enough place for each and everyone of us. I don’t mind standing actually since it is my fault for being late, but even by standing, the place is way too crammed to even stand comfortably and let alone walk. I thought event planners always made a research regarding how many people could fit in the hall before sending out invites?

You have over hundred of guests there but you would only provide less than 10 cocktail tables? I only saw 3 cocktail tables but I am assuming there were more tables because I seriously do not wish to think the event can go until THAT bad. I like the talk show concept and also how the lucky draw system works. It was quite interactive. But other than that, the event management simply just blows. Not to mention we have to dine by the walkway. Serious? WALKWAY?!?!?

The talkshow approach is quite good as it makes the presentation a little bit more less casual. This would be good if they don’t have the terrible event management.

Hard to take any nice photos. People had been pushing a lot.

One of the lucky draw winners

Once the launch and talk show is over, there is a lucky draw where balloon fell and the winner will be the one who holds the congratulations paper will win a brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 2. After the lucky draw, we proceed to the exhibition area where it is in an outdoor tentage.

Enough of rantings, the highlight of the night would be the phone of course.  What I immediately tested out with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is its S Pen stylus. This is because the predecessor phablet, S Pen, is quite bad. I know this because I own a Samsung Galaxy Note. The new S Pen has some really major improvements in it. It is much more responsive, smooth and also there is no noticeable amount of delay in strokes compared to the old one. This is pretty amazing as drawing on this Galaxy Note 2 would definitely be a fantastic experience.

Trying on the S Pen

got slight delay but a very smooth drawing process as well.

With its 5.5″ screen size, I was thinking this size would finally be way too big to be used. I am surprise it is not. The size and dimension of the Note 2 have very minimal difference compared to the Note 1 and this is impressive. An increased screen size but still at a very pocketable overall size. Fans of large screens will go crazy over this. I a impressed.

The cameras are quite impressive as well with a 1.9 Megapixels front camera and also pretty much the back camera also improved a lot. With a 1.6 quad core processor built in, browsing and using the phone had been a very smooth experience for me.

Video Resizing

However, the REAL feature that I was looking forward to, the Multitasking feature which enables you to open 2 windows at the same time to work with was not tested as it was not updated to the pre-installed version. The Air View is pretty impressive and the pop-up play can now be resized to however size that you will like. That is pretty neatif you watch videos on your phone a lot.

Here’s a quick look at the specs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

  • Runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • 1.6 GHz quad-core processor
  • 140.9 mm (5.5″) HD Super AMOLED (1,280 x 720)
  • Battery, Li-ion 3,100mAh
  • Rear camera: 8 Megapixel Auto Focus Camera with LED Flash
  • Front Camera: 1.9 Megapixel VT Camera
  • 4G compatible
  • S Pen Stylus

I couldn’t really give a verdict regarding whether this phone worth the buy or not as I had not tested it fully yet. BUT if you are looking to get the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Celcom has a great deal for you. For as low as RM1498 with Celcom Plans, you can get your hands on this new Galaxy Note 2. If you want to purchase it from them, I would recommend you to purchase during their roadshow. This is because you will get FREE KFC Vouchers worth RM20, a FREE 6-month MUSICUBE subscription AND a RM120 rebate (RM10 x 12 months)

There will also be some lucky draw going on during these roadshows where you can win a  Samsung GALAXY S III, a Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 and tickets to JLo’s or Siti Norhaliza’s concert.

(ADV) Shoulder aches and tension, begone!

Author:

Being a designer and a blogger basically requires me to face my computer almost the whole day. From 10 to 7 in office, and as soon as I reach home and done my dinner and bath,  would usually have to spend one or two hours in front of the com again for blogging purposes. This sometimes could end up till way past midnight. It is the same for weekends since I too had to spend most of it doing my blog posts. Comic blogging requires more time than usual for me.

(Event) 4 Types of Party People and Hennessy Artistry

Author:
Partying has always been a part of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor’s lifestyle. It is until that stage where it get stereotypical for anyone that resides in these two areas to just party all the time. People having harder time believing that I rarely goes to these parties compared to me telling them how gay I am. Yeap, it is that tough.
There with me for the party is Ernest, Caroline and Sherlynn. But before I go into the 4 types of people who are present, let me share what is going on during Hennessy at Kenanga Wholesale City. After all, this is an event post so do allow me to do some part of my work here.

The Most Happening Party of 2012 at KWC Kuala Lumpur – Hennessy Artistry

Author:
When you talk about party of the year, most people in their mind would have the name Hennessy Artistry popped up. Do you need a reason why? Frankly, I don’t know as I had never been to any of the Hennessy Artistry before in my life as I’m not much of a party goer. Hence, I want to find out. I want to know is all the fuss about. I want to know why is it considered one of the MUST go event in Malaysia every single year. So this coming 8th September 2012, Hennessy Artistry is back in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This would be their second installment of 2012’s Global Art of Mixing Trilogy after the first installment at SQCC Penang last June. This is going to take place at Level 15 KWC Kuala Lumpur. And since it would be my virgin experience of the Hennessy Artistry, I decided to call a veteran to guide me and lead me with the do’s and don’t’s of partying Hennessy Artistry style. He is none other than our Internet Purple Icon (not a relative of an extremely annoying to me and talking purple dinosaur) Ernest Ng from Bro, Don’t Like That La Bro.

Burning The Midnight Oil

Author:

Burning the midnight oil is something common to me already. If it’s not because of work, it is because of doing some comic post. Or due to some internet distractions, I couldn’t sleep early. Nevertheless, staying up late to work is something that I almost get used to. However, sometimes, I get so sleepy, I couldn’t even work properly. Like you can see on my blogposts, why it is full of typos, spelling errors and sometimes sentences that don’t make any sense at all.
