Event

Good Bye World

Don’t you hate it when your movie file hangs or is corrupted at the end or middle of the movie. T3T. I was watching a series the other day when it happened. The movie hanged at the climax part. Errgh.

 Okay, I didn’t really go to the extent of killing myself for it but that doesn’t means no one might go to that extent.

Some people do have a weaker mind compare to others. A normal matters to some might be serious issues to them causing them to be depressed when they unable to overcome it. Matters like bullying by schoolmates, breakups, failing in exams, or problems with family are some of the reasons for depression in youth. And at worst scenario, this depression might leads them to commit suicide if they see it as the only way out of their problems.

A reader of mine and his team is organizing an event called HELP World Mental Health Day. Since it’s a good cause, I decided to help her out by promoting the event. There will be performances, exhibitions, workshops and booths. Do drop by if you’re free or nearby this coming 27th-28th October 2012 at Piazza, the Curve (outside Laundry Bar).

Come to think of it, my case is more like a homicide with headline: “A cat killed by his own food”.

Miao meeting “When I was a kid” author, Boey @ H.I.P Kuching

Although, I didn’t manage to be the first English comic blogger in Malaysia to publish a book, it didn’t stop me from supporting another fellow local comic blogger.

And so, I continued to check out the blog and …

and

at Kuching MPH bookstore.

Hahaha… I was very happy when I found out he was coming to Kuching. I cancelled my plans that weekend just to meet him up.

If you’re wondering who’s this comic blogger, well he’s no other than CheeMing Boey from iamboey.com. Go and read his blog after his post ya! :)

 ………

I also told all my friends in the Comic Doodle Blogger group about him, his blog and book. Everyone was hooked on the blog too after that. Suddenly, I had this thought that maybe I can try ask him something about book publishing for the comic bloggers in the group.

Book publishing is not an easy thing in Malaysia especially if you’re publishing comics and also in English and he did it and his book even became MPH best selling non fiction book.

At first, I was afraid he might be too busy to answer my question but..

we ended up talking for 2 hours about comics at his cousin’s newly renovated cafe.

He just too awesome!! He shared everything he knows from book publishing, character designs, storyline, concept and even marketing ideas. T3T  All 5 years of experience in 2 hours. Thank youuuuu soooooo much.

As a favor for his kindness and generosity,  I decided to help out and promote his cousin cafe. :)

So Kuchingites!! Do check this place out. The H.I.P. Cafe.  It’s located next to the MBO Cinema at Spring. Perfect location for you to chill out before and after a movie.

Here some photos of the place.

Front Bar.

Beanie bags for you lazy butts who just wanna lie down and chit chat!!

Cakes for you people with a sweet tooth.

In my opinion, it’s a great place to hang out especially if you compare with the other cafe that is available in theSpring Mall. Oh, If you’re there, do remember to try their mini pork burger. It’s very very good. :)

Boey is actually very well known in the States for his drawing on foam cups.

The one WafuPafu trying to steal here worth USD1400.

Miao&CheeChingy at #Churpout 2012 with #CelcomNote2

Yes, that’s me in my human suit. Chingy at the center and our Monkeyhao at the back.

Early morning last Saturday, Monkeyhao was super duper kind and fetched us to Publika for Churpout 2012.   Me and Chingy had our booths there to showcase our arts, promoting and hopefully meeting our readers. It was our first time to meet our readers in public.

Under prepared, I forgot to bring any easels for my boards …

and ended up making our own.

and it works. Seems like the “we’re engineer” works.

Oh, this is how my booth looks like XD.

I prepared quite number of stuff for the booth like drawing tools to draw stuffs for anyone who visited, sample phone cases, newly designed and printed namecards :D.

the only thing I didn’t prepare was a full stomach. XD LOL

I then took a quick brunch with CheeChingy and Monkeyhao since the booth starts at 11am. Lol

When we got back, someone was already there. :3 One of our readers came and visited us!!

It was sooo awesomeee :D We’re so happy and don’t know what to do.

After a while, a few more show up. T^T *so touched*

And before we know it..

we’re taking photos

receiving gifts/letters

and drawing pictures on the papers for our readers.

It was sooo fun.  We even had some chit chat with them. :3

Awesome time to know more about our readers.

We even get the chance to draw on the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Thanks to Celcom and Samsung.  They helped to print the drawings on the spot for the readers.

Here’s the sketches I did on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Honestly, it was my first time drawing on a phone. I must say it’s rather different, it was very smooth in compared to conventional drawing tools as it does not have friction like paper surface but the sensitivity was very good. I have tried my friend’s Samsung Note 1 before and it really improves a lot on the sensitivity and accuracy.

Actually, I kinda got addicted to it in the end. How nice it will be to have one and sketch my idea as I travel. *Batting my eyelashes*

 …………….

Well, this is basically what was going on at my booth at the Inspiration sections.

As I was at my booth the whole day, I didn’t manage to wander around much but from where I am, I saw the Marketplace section was doing extremely well. 

It was flooded with people and clothes and people keeps coming in. Well, girls love clothes. :P

…………………

The FunCircuit area offers four games where you can collect points for some presents.

I didn’t manage to play any games and refuse to play this game that will get myself wet, I didn’t win anything. But I heard there’s this fella who win 3 presents in one round; a phone, a tablet and  a camera. That’s like 8k worth of presents!! Lucky fella. =.=

 

………………………

Luckily, I manage to catch up with Skyward performance at the Stage area.

Listening to them live is so different.

I even got to see some of Malaysia’s famous youtubers on stage.

It was weird to see them in real life as I always watch them on my 14″ small laptop. Lol.

………………………….

It was an awesome event. I personally enjoyed it. :)

Gonna thank Churpout for inviting me over to this event. I got to meet a lot of people from readers, old friends, new friends, blogger friends, online friends, hi-bye friends to non human friends. It was great meeting them all.

Another big thanks to for those who came and visit not only to the Churpout event but to our booth just to support us. Thanks to you, the readers, bloggers and friends.

We’re so happy when people actually came and meet us, and some even from far far away. It means a lot to us.

Every day, we draw hours just for a post that finished reading in a few seconds, just to get the readers to like our drawings and also hope it can makes you smile and have a brighten day. And your visits that day really makes our hard works worth it and my trip all the way from Borneo even worth it. :)

.

Oh and I sorry to my readers, as I lost the letters and gifts you girls gave me. :( It was gone with my phone cases, namecards, note pad, and other stuffs together with the goodie bag. Oh, and with WafuPafu in it. :|

Shit, I talked too much. Wonder whether anyone reads them. LOL. Till next post. :) See ya.
