Las Vegas – Bug Free Mastermind

Checked into The Palms Spring here in Vegas and here for a week!

I was here chiefly for the Annual Bug Free Mastermind and since we arrived early, we visited the Grand Canyon via the Sundance heli tour. (something that I didn’t get to do on my first time here 6 years ago)

View was breathtaking – literally!

Also got to go to the shooting range at Battlefield Las Vegas, to shoot my dream gun – the MG42!

Some shopping at North Premium Outlet (and wow the prices were premium too)

One day before the Annual Bug Free Mastermind began, we were treated to a Zappos HQ tour.

Followed by the main event for the next five days – packed with Conference Hall presentations, parties and dinners…

I didn’t attend all of them; I was sick on the first two days of the event and because I don’t drink that means you won’t find me at the pubs and bars. Still got out some good connections from the event nonetheless.

We ended the Vegas trip with a visit to the Old Strip, Fermont Street and watched the Penn and Teller live performance (second time for me!)

Next stop: Los Angeles revisited…

DBA Jakarta Live

Last year I went to DBA Surabaya Live as a speaker, this time I returned as an attendee. Joining me from Malaysia are my ex-interns Shaun and Cally, workshop student Kate, and newcomer Charis 🙂

There were about 70+ people attending this event, and even though I think some parts of the event could have been improved we got what we came for: networking and connections building. Plus, catching up with friends in this business from long ago.

Didn’t get much work done as Internet is sluggish at JS Luwansa and with long hours at the event. I reasoned that I do a launch almost every month but it’s not all the time I get to meet my business associates and friends face-to-face.

Spent a good 4 days here receiving luxury and pampered treatment, lol.

After the event, we extended another two more days stay to visit Jakarta…

Traffic & Conversion Summit 2016

One of the two main highlights of my US trip. This is the first time I’ve met many of the Internet Entrepreneurs and Marketers that I’ve worked with or heard of for so many years… now face to face! Feeling is surreal and somewhat hard to believe. lol

This year’s T&C was attended by 2,500+ people, and the booths were crazy too… it’s as if my email promo tabs came to life!

The sessions were great but man it’s been a long time since I last had info overload (then again, I’ve been going from one mastermind to another meeting to yet another in the last 3 weeks)

Too bad I cannot stay around long enough for Mayhem next month as I need to be back in Malaysia, otherwise I won’t get much done! And trust me, there’s LOTS TO DO and I’m already itching!

In all I spent exactly one week in San Diego. I had time to visit a few places before and after the event including the famous San Diego Zoo, USS Midway and the Maritime Museum.

That was great and all but one more stop remains: Dallas.

Yes, back to origin…

Rock Climbing at Camp 5

It’s been more than a month since I last took the Musemancer team out anywhere. Now that the Cover Genie Pro launch has been done and support is more manageable, we needed to give ourselves a treat.

After all, we just got a new full-time staff and two Interns joining us this week – in time to have fun with us!

One of my colleagues, Augustine, suggested we go rock climbing at Camp 5, 1 Utama. Why not? First and last time I went here was 6 years ago.

And whoa… the girls sure could climb. They’ve been trashing us guys at it! Way to go 🙂
