Digi Fuuuuuuuuuu-Yooooooooooh!!!!!!!!!!

This is a post about Digi Fu-Yoh! Street Blast at Kota Kinabalu on 2nd June 2007. Kind of a photo-blog…

Nothing wrong with the title. It was meant to be like that. After accepting the assignment from Josh Lim (Advertlets) couple of days back, I bought a new Canon PowerShot A460 digital camera just for the event. My Sony Cybershot S40 died a month ago after serving my family for 2+ years.

Anyway, I headed to Padang Merdeka, in the heart of Kota Kinabalu city exactly at 7pm. I know, it’s early, but I just want to make sure that I won’t be caught in traffic. I called Eric (nice guy) who is one of Digi representative which supposed to give me a special entry pass – and he did.

It started a bit slow with few songs from the winners of Digi Celebri-Teen competition 2006, but it was not long. Estranged, a local Sabahan group lead by Rich AF4, live up the night with an energetic performance. And the night goes really Fuuuuu-Yooooooh!!!!! after that.

Need I say more? I think pictures and maybe few YouTube clips will tell you more than a thousand word. Enjoy!!!

Lo. Cool guy!

I did get hold with Lo. Mentioned to him that I like him – without his Chelsea!!! Cheers bro!

The good thing about having a backstage pass was this. I managed to capture this photo of Lo without any disturbance. Thanks to Eric for giving us the backstage pass!

Oh, just would like to show you the place of the event.

I would like to thank these people for giving me the opportunity to have a Fu-Yoh! time that night!

  1. Josh Lim from Advertlets, who trusted me on this assignment. I hope I get a good grade with this post, bro!
  2. Digi Fu-Yoh! Street Blast for bringing some of the unfamiliar group (the first time for Disagree to perform in KK) to Kota Kinabalu.
  3. Eric (cool guy) who bring us backstage to meet one of my favorite singer – Lo. (Okay, I will get my Digi Fu-Yoh! number today)

Advertlets vs Nuffnang – result after 1 month

I did mentioned to you about getting the result after running both ads for 1 month. Nuffnang and Advertlets have served this blog for more than 30 days, a time frame that is good enough to gauge how much they have spent for a blogger/webmaster like me. I don’t want to comment, but you can see it for yourself:

I will wait until my bank statement change with those numbers…

Calling ALL Sabah and Sarawak Bloggers!!!

AdvertletsI received an email from Josh (Advertlets) today. He is looking for MORE Sabah and Sarawak (East Malaysia) Bloggers to join Advertlets, as he has an opportunity for us to make use of our ad space to serve MORE targeted ads, i.e. advertisers from East Malaysia for LOCAL viewers. By doing that, it may increase our click through rate, and indirectly may increase our revenue by serving the ads. This is what his email sounds like:

Here’s the thing….We have managed to attract the interest of a advertiser, who plans to advertise a relatively big series of lifestyle events on your blogs, sometime around June, in East Malaysia. The event will happen in both Sabah AND Sarawak. Fingers crossed, besides giving you a relevant ad to show on your blogs, we will also negotiate for free passes for all of you, and some of you will get paying review / blogvertorial opportunities of the event (before and after the event).

We are really looking forward to making this campaign a success. To make it easier for us to close this deal, and also to ensure we can get ads specifically for East Malaysia in future, we need more bloggers – there are currently less than 100 Advertlets Bloggers from East Malaysia. We’ll need more to create a big bang…say, maybe about 250-300, before end of May?

Personally, I think this would be the best practice. Similar like Google Adsense, serving more targeted ads will definitely bring more revenues to the publishers and bloggers like us. So, visitors from Sabah and Sarawak will feel more “at home” by seeing ads from a local advertisers, compared to seeing an international ads. I don’t know about you, but serving some US advertisement in this blog is almost useless, and it is a big “ad space waste” for me.

I have a very good feeling about this thing and really support Josh and his team. If you happened to be one of the “East Malaysian Blogger” (or even blogger-to-be) why not register with Advertlets. Fingers-crossed, hopefully it CAN really be done. Malaysia Boleh!

For Josh, I will surely be one of your loyal supporter.
