Of Slides and Funny-Sounding Events...
Thursday, November 20, 2008

     It was about 2 months back, during the AMBP Travel Ambassador's Launch that I met Teckiee. It was during that particular event that I first heard about Pecha Kucha. For those whose brows are crinkled trying to figure out what in heck is Pecha Kucha, its actually Japanese for Chit-Chat. Here, people prepare slides, and come up to talk about it, and they are only given about 20 seconds per slide. The topics can be about anything and everything under the sun, as you will see shortly. Don't just take my word for it, have a look at it here.

She was very interested in Pecha Kucha.

     After having indicated our interest then, Teckiee recently informed us about the upcoming Pecha Kucha session that was to be held in The Apartment Downtown, KLCC. Eager to find out what it was all about, I drove over to the brightly lit towers and into The Apartment, where Teckiee was already waiting with her colleagues for the show to start.
Hurley arrived slightly later, and before long, Simon appeared as well.

The First Slide.

Surprised man at the bar.

Teckiee's Tomato and Something Drink.

     The event started off with a pretty short brief by the M.C. about Pecha Kucha, and without much ado, the slides began. One by one (or sometimes two), they began their stories, with aid from the slides which were mostly made up from fancy art and graphics.

Lisa and Su Sim and their mind-boggling designs.

Max Villandre, the General Manager of CodeMasters Malaysia, talking about their latest product, Grid Racer.

Joseph Foo (John, you would remember him)

      Of course, with bloggers present, there'll always be an equal amount of photos of ourselves as well as the presenters.

Simon managed to catch a Codemasters T-Shirt...

...and Teckiee got a squishy stress ball. RM11.40 coffee. I was talking to Philip, a French guy from the British Council who made an astute statement, "Its Malaysian management, but not Malaysian prices!". How true.

AMBP people reunited.

Hurley suggested we try a totem-pole method of taking a photo, which failed initially...

...but we achieved our objective eventually.

My favourite slide of the night was from this guy, who spoke about his life in a kampung. It was genuine, honest, and the photos which made up the presentation weren't digitally enhanced or jazzed up with fancy thingamajigs, but were impactful in its own way.

Simon likes his beer.

Penny Yuen from Ecowarrior carries a bag which she named Pokok.

     A very interesting (and thankfully, not run of the mill) event. A thousand thanks to Teckiee! for taking the trouble to inform us about it. Looking forward to more in the future.

     I'll always see Powerpoint in a different light now.
