A Short Retreat… :-)

Hey Everyone!

I’m currently taking a short retreat in my humble home in Johor Bahru now, and will be here for another less than a week or so before I find myself in the PJ/KL grinder again. The PJ/KL lifestyle is hectic (and it has always been!) – this is one of those times I could appreciate a short vacation.

Now I know why people often say, “there’s no place like home“. πŸ™‚

Okay, Some Important Updates…

2 posts back, I made a special mention about marking the 24th of July on your calendar. Because that will be the grand day my next Product Launch, Resell Rights Xtreme, goes live.

Or so it should.

Unfortunately, due to time constraints and the issues Khai and I have been facing in setting up the CMSInfusion script, we felt that the best course of action is to postpone the Product Launch to a later date.

We know that a lot of our JV Partners and waiting-to-be-customers are waiting for it – and we sincerely apologize. Like you, we too hate delays. However, weighing between the customer satisfaction and rushing to push an untested package into the marketplace, we’d take serving customer satisfaction anytime of the day.

We’ll keep you posted on RRX soon…

The Workplace

My workplace a.k.a. work station a.k.a. home office. I know, it doesn’t look like one. But I prefer to keep things neat and simple – no papers and folders scattering around the desk and floor. πŸ™‚

Edmund Loh

Yup – that’s me. I really miss working from home in casual!

Small Kuras

Meet Kura and Kura…

Kura & Kura

… and Kura and Kura (no typo – all of my pet tortoises share the same Last Name. ;-))

Auwlithe

Meet Auwlithe, my Chief of Security.

So you see, my house/home office is teeming with life… πŸ˜‰

The 7/7/07 Wedding & Pictures

Congratulations to Khai & Yuenn – the newly wed couple! πŸ™‚

They’re saving the big bash for late November, but it won’t hurt hosting a little party bash over at Khai’s place. I was one of the few guests invited, and here’s how we celebrated: dinner and board games. (This is soooo Khai-style)

Some Pics on 7/7/07

Board Games a.k.a. Creaming Time

Lifeboats

Playing Lifeboats.

Jie Ming (Alfred Ko): Uhh… how do I play this game?

Gobala Krishnan: I am the Captain!

Edmund Loh (that’s me!): *Hee hee hee hee*! I am confident I can win the game. I’m gonna sink you, Gobi!

Khai: Don’t trade with him! He’s winning! (Friend, this is NOT Settlers of Catan.)

Edmund Loh

Hah! My men have made it to the shore! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Seeeerious Game

Seeerious last round… with so few lifeboats remaining, and every men and leak counts, it’s virtually anyone’s win now.

Khai Won!

What do you know… Khai won (at the expense of my sailors)! The entire day belongs to him, after all. πŸ˜›

Some Quick Updates

Hey!

Lately, I have been busy with numerous projects, marketing experiments and pending Product Launches to handle at hand. I’ll keep you posted every now and then as they draw nearer. πŸ˜‰

In the mean time, in case you haven’t noticed just yet: I made some minor changes to the picture in my blog’s header. I’ve replaced my photo with a caricature of me – there were numerous comments that I looked like some high school kid. LOL

More updates in the pipeline next week! πŸ™‚

WIS Video

Here’s a quick video taken throughout the last World Internet Summit adventure in Singapore.

10 Things I Noticed About The Video

1. 2:30 – 2:18 – Khai looked like he was conducting a typical MLM talk/presentation in front of the crowd.

2. Khai has a generous share of footage in the video.

3. 2:18 – 2:11 – it looked as if I was giving Khai a testimonial following his “MLM talk”.

4. 2:02 – 1:55 – Aurelius Tjin looked dumb-founded.

5. 1:51 – 1:43 – James B Allen and James Brown looked like they were demanding for some kind of compensation.

6. 0:54 – 0:46 – well… we hardly hang around in the seminar event itself throughout the 4 day duration. (so much for the reservations)

7. 0:24 – John Childer’s pose resembled Bobby Lashley’s trademark entrance, a Wrestling Superstar from WWE.

8. 0:21 – 0:18 – the WIS speakers were trying to do something weird on stage!

9. 0:16 – There’s “na na na na na” written all over the presentation slide in the background.

10. Ladan, the camera girl, has only 2-3 seconds worth of air time!
