We are one big family

For those who have missed the gathering, do not be disappointed. I am sure there are plenty more great blogger gatherings coming up. First I would like to thank Josh Lim of Advertlets, James of uchu keling and Halo cafe for organizing the bloggers gathering yesterday. The responds turn out to be pretty good, some familiar faces and new faces too.

The event started with bloggers or participants introducing themselves on the stage, some were pretty shy and some were not shy at all. Then later on there was the quiz session, anyone who answers the most question wins cash prizes. Adverlets members who answers the question also wins cash prizes, that is good stuff. The game got a little bit more interesting since there were three ties. Josh made them play paper scissors rock to determine the winner. Christine won the first prize, Tony second and Chee Kui with the third.

Xmas Borneo Bash 2007

A huge thank you to those who were there and the organizers for making the rave happen, this is Miri's first big rave. The line up for the night was Frequency K, Cbell J and X-statik, I reached there around 8:30pm which was pretty early for a rave. It was pretty empty since it was still early, slowly people are coming in. The rave started with frequency K warming the set with good electro, then the shufflers came and conquered the dance floor. The shufflers sort of intimidated the crowds to come forward to dance, but later more and more people came to the front. Since Celcom was one of the sponsors they had a lucky draw on that night, a lucky Santa dude won cash prizes.

The crowd were starting to dance to the music as soon as Cbell J started his session, it was pretty good of cbell to mix some commercial stuff together with some hard staff just to educate the people of Miri to trance and other good stuff. By the time x-statik's session starts, I notice some of the people are beginning to leave. (O_O???) x-statik was the main highlight of the night, I must say that his set was awesome and I really loved it. I notice that most of the shufflers are tired, but some of them continue to rock the dance floor. Later more and more people started to leave the place, it seems like Mirians are still not used to rave after all.

Overall I think that it was very good, especially the music and the big venue. Finally the indoor stadium has been utilized properly, let's hope more raves from Cabell enterprise. Once again kudos to the organizers. By the way, those who attended the rave on Monday.

A new Cafe

At last a new place has open in Miri, before i tell you guys what is the name of the place let me just tell you that I am kind of sad that there is no creativity in naming a restaurant especially here in Safrawak. It is always the case of the amusing restaurant names you would see, but it might the amusing fact that made people patronize the place because of it. Which one would it be? I do not know but you will do the judging by yourself.

Here we go, the place name is call "Armani Cafe" and I did not get it wrong, It is the exact same spelling as the Giorgio Armani. Next time I am going to open Gucci Cafe or Louis Vuitton Cafe or better yet Bonia Cafe, I seriouly think that they could have come out with something else better than that.

Back to the food review, since it is newly open we decided to go there to try out the food, good or bad, we shall find out. We ordered a ham mayo sandwich, Mango chicken rice, two baked cheese rice, the interior design and the ambiance of the place looks ok to me.

When the Ham mayo sandwich came, it was a complete ripped off. The ham they used is the one you can buy in your super market for RM2.50 or Rm5.00 for 10 pcs, not worth it at all. The rice we ordered was alright, not that bad and not that good, there are plenty of room for improvement for the food and drinks there. No doubt the presentation of the food was good, but quality just was not there. I would just give this place 2 and half start out of five, would I return there again? yes, but only if someone comes and tell me the food is as good as Chatter box or better than fratini's then I shall return, if not I would not bother to do so.

Miss Tourism 2007

Miss Tourism 2007 is back here in Miri, Naim Cendera being one of the biggest developers in Sarawak together with MR Aleric Soh who are responsible for bringing 31 beautiful ladies here in Miri. Miss Tourism is an anual event held in Sarawak every year, this year it is buyers get buyers night again like year 2005. The tickets are not sold, it was given out by Naim Cendera as an appreciation for the customers.

I am so glad that my DSLR came back just on the day itself, but i spent RM400.00 for the repairs *ouch!* Ken, Arnold and my parents were there. Irene joined us very late, since she had something to do. The show started almost 2 hours late, which is very typical. They started off the night with a dance peformance, which I did not quite like it. The 31 beauty pagents comes out, they introduce themselves one by one. Later on there were 10 girls who performed on the talent show, then comes the night gown session. Just like last year, one of them won the subsidary title of Miss Permyjaya by highest vote from the crowd.
My camera's battery died on me again, despite that I was still able to grab some shots from the night. Enjoy the photos and sorry i could not post all of the photos since there are too many of it.
