Congrats Dulcie and Jay! You both sure came a long way from the days of Dunners.
So nice to see you guys in Singapore after quite some time. Last time I was here was April 2019.
I know I have yet to catch up with more people, but if you haven’t heard yet, I moved to Johor slightly more than half a year ago. Which means coming to SG is a lot more convenient now.
It’s been half a year, and I was back in Kuala Lumpur again!
This time, I stayed at Furama Hotel for the weekend and attended Patric Chan’s next live event, just a stone’s throw away at Berjaya Times Square hotel.
While I wasn’t in the hall all the time, I took this opportunity to meet some of my own personal coaching students outside, and squeezed in a movie viewing on M3GAN, right on debut night.
Even though it was mostly a leisure trip, I shot some video clips for my YouTube and TikTok Ads.
Interesting to note that even though the event sold 130 tickets, only 70+ people were in attendance. Note it’s an upfront paid event, so to see so many people absent is really strange.
It’s not just this event; I hear this is happening to other business and IM-related live events at the moment.
Of course, this doesn’t reflect the entirety of the live events industry, but on the flip side, it’s good to know there’s strong demand for webinars – which is what I am primarily running on now. So much more profitable and easier compared to running the seminar circuit prior to the 2020 lockdowns.
My first Airsoft MILSIM since 2016, second game in Thailand, and with almost 300 players, this is the biggest event I’ve been to so far.
Organizers at TKL Airsoft have been planning this for months, and it showed. Game was from late morning to night, with balanced emphasis on fire fights, importance of supplies and accomplishing mission objectives.
The entire game narrative was loosely based on a true event that happened right here in this place (Himmappan Forest) where the Thai Army fought the Communist Party of Thailand (CPT).
Of course, as you can see in the photos, the players from each faction wore “loosely based” (camo for Thai Army and Foreign Volunteers, black and plain color for CPT)
The other thing that caught my attention was the WW2 reenactor scene is really strong in Thailand. Just wow!
And they have an impressive range of Airsoft guns too.
Hope to bring more Malaysians with me next round. There were 5 of us (incidentally, all from Johor… hence LUASKAN KUASAMU) but the more, the merrier.
Will definitely want to come back again!
Had a fun 3 days at Techstars Startup JB!
Thanks Shaun Ling and the iPrima Media team for organizing a successful event.
