Nuffnang Wild LIVE Blogging - (Not So) Direct From Sri Hartamas (Anymore)
Saturday, June 21, 2008

     Well, I'm here, at the glitzy Modestos/Rain, in Sri Hartamas, attending the Nuffnang's Wild LIVE Blogging event. The main concept of the day is to blog directly from the scene, so, here's my take on that particular requirement...

With any luck, this is what you could have seen that night...

Nuffnang's Wild LIVE Blogging - Live Video Feed!
(from Soon Seng's Point of View)

<<<<< Didn't work as well as it should

To use the video feed, click on "Menu" (its there, on the bottom left hand corner), followed by "Live Streaming Video". Wait a few moments, and you're good to go!
*please note that there will be a time lag, influenced by your connection speed, as well as mine, over here

About an hour before the actual thing, I dropped by Centrepoint, Damansara to meet up with Lauren and Sue Ann (who had just returned from the UK), to return her curtains, and chat. After the delightful catching up, I sped off to Sri Hartamas, where the show was about to get underway...

Myself, Lauren, and Sue Ann, at Secret Recipe

     The event started with Liang excitedly calling all the bloggers to gather in front of the stage. After the necessary speeches by the organizers, food was served, and the members of the Nuffnang community started to mingle (I could see the various types of antennae and rabbit ears move about the floor)

Random fact: When I was a wee bit younger, I actually played football with Liang once

He is definitely in the mood.

Pam, Sheng Mae, Jentz, and Kellster.. Jentz was in my church, and Kellster was my high school senior! (more "Its a small world" moments)

Kellster, myself, Sheng Mae

Robb! Dedicated to making the event a success...

     The time had finally come for me to post my "live" blog. When I pulled out my webcam, and started fiddling, however, I realised that I could only see a blank black screen, with some spots on it (apparently cheap webcams like mine don't work too well in the dark) To those of you who actually logged in to view the webcam feed, a thousand apologies.. I hope you were entertained by the scrolling marquee on the right and didn't die outright from boredom.

The crowd, in their various costumes..

Kenny Sia (yes, that IS a Pooh head under his arm), myself, and Ringo

When my (useless) webcam stream hung because of an "internal server error", I noticed that
Min Li also had some difficulty posting up her live entry.(The ladybird costume was her own work of art!)

     It was about this point that, after all the games had been played, and the winners of all the various categories chosen, came the announcement of the winner for the "Live" Blogging Contest. The initial drum roll came on, and when they announced the winner... she didn't appear. I guess she had already gone home slightly earlier. So, after a short debate, they decided to award the prize to the second in line, which, strangely enough,

The crowd is enthusiastic...

Stolen from Shaolintiger... Thanks a million!

     Despite the fact that my webcam streaming idea could have been thrown into the dustbin, I managed to get my hands on the prize! God IS watching from above...haha...

The man himself, Timothy Tiah! (looking exhausted)

Pinkpau, in another ladybird dress! (I just noticed the pink elephant hat behind... it looks like I'm supporting it with my head)

     The night finally drew to an end, I made my goodbyes, and drove off. Halfway along the way, however, I noticed 3 fellows that I recognized from the event, trying to hail a taxi. After offering them a lift to the nearest LRT station, I experienced another "Its a small world" moment...

Kul and Frankie were studying in Trono, where another friend studies. Kul is from Malacca, and is my housemate's brother's friend. (yes, its a small world indeed =) Nice meeting you guys!

     Yup, good food, free flow of drinks, young - energetic - opinionated people, wild costumes, and a whole deal of fun.

     I guess thats what blogging is all about. =)

"Live" Blogging Pays Off! (the fruits of my (failed webcam) labour)

     Many thanks and congratulations to Nuffnang, for an incredibly fun time, and a succesful event! Hope to see you guys again in the future!
