Of Slides and Funny-Sounding Events (Vol 11)...
Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Its been a little over two years since Teckiee suggested that I go for Pecha Kucha, an event organized by the British Council annually, and when I heard that it was going to be held in Delucca, KL this year, I quickly packed the camera and headed over to the Italian restaurant along Jalan Mesui.



This was back in 2008.

     Pecha Kucha originates from Tokyo, Japan, and is an event where creative people gather to talk about practically anything under the sun. Its pretty simple actually. A person has to present 20 slides, with 20 seconds allocated per slide, which brings it to a neat 6 minutes 40 seconds.  

     In 2008, it was a collection of creative meisters in their professions, each one given a mike, a blank screen, and a Powerpoint file with 20 slides in it. This time around, the key word of the night was 'Social Media', and present to present on the topic were a bunch of social media experts, diverse in their respective industries and personalities.



Niki Cheong - Journalist and social media advocate. Also the host/emcee for the night!



Daphne Iking –TV host and actress.



Tengku Zatashah Idris – Online entrepreneur of exclusive gift collection company Originalo.



Low Ngai Yuen – Director, producer and head of the newly revived Kakiseni.com team.



Julian Hopkins - PhD candidate at Monash University, Sunway Campus researching the commercialisation of Malaysian blogs.



James Chong - Independent Internet Strategist Heading Online & Social Media for P1.



Zain HD– Project Manager for RandomAlphabets (the collective behind Glee Flashmob Dance KL, Tali Tenang and Freeze for Unison) and Wago, which does social media PR and alternative events.



Foong Cheng Leong – Senior Associate at Lee Hishammuddin Allen & Gledhill focusing on Intellectual Property and Information Technology and cyberlaws (sadly, I didn't manage to get a proper shot of him in action)



Sivin Kit – Pastor at Bangsar Lutheran Church and social activist.



Jonson Chong - Human rights lawyer and former KEADILAN communications director (or rather, his silhouette).

The enraptured crowd.



Ayue and Daphne.



Relaxed poses make the best shots! Thats Marcus by the corner.



Tianchad and Daphne!



Cheng Leong and Siti! One gets lawful vibes around them.



Sivin, the friendly neighbourhood Reverend.

     All in all, a very informative and educational time, with plenty of networking to be handed out all around.
