his idiosyncratic observations and tangential commentary into a blog...
- I SEE THEE
(A Pictorial Review)
by TV Smith
Malaysia's biggest ICT event held in conjunction with Malaysia's biggest smoking
event? One of the first things that greet visitors at the entrance are the overflowing
litterbins (below left). Did we just deport another round of foreigners or did
their wages just go up? In
the high-tech age of large LCD displays and plasma screens, the visitor is next
greeted by a video projector suspended mamak
restoran-style (below right). Still, at least there was some form of entertainment,
as the single queue at the limited registration counters soon snaked into an endless
combo pavilion is the biggest and grandest, without doubt. They are smart this
time in not bringing along those sullen women from their counters. They hired
pretty Ah Lians instead. These Ah Lians know their stuff. They posed instinctively
every time they see a camera (below left). Mercifully, there is not one tiny weeny
single trace of VPL (Visible Panty Line): the cardinal sin of dressing in tight
white (below right). There is one disturbing thing over there, though. Below the
slender legs and stilettos are tiny floor-buried aquariums complete with trapped
micro fishes or tadpoles. Who the hell came up with such sadistic designs?
booth is refreshingly earthly and traditional. Instead of opting for chrome and
plastic, their technology is decked out in bamboo, barks and dried leaves (below
left). Jaring has got to be the most creative. Their stand is enclosed in a giant
mosquito net (below right).
knows that when it comes to automobiles or boring CRM, girls sell. No one's interested
in your booth even if you provide true broadband. Put a pretty face there and
the men will be milling around for hours (below left). Heck, they might even volunteer
more information than she asks, including their ATM password or EPF balance. A
great way to expand databases. HOTlink has a one-up on every one else. They have
a sensuous pussycat prowling the floor (below right).
too has a well-designed stand with plenty of pretty women in white. An Indian
DJ who tried hard to sound like an American black nearly marred it. But then again,
every Indian DJ in Malaysia tries to sound black. Why can't they sound Indian
like Richard Ng?
2004, billed as "Malaysia's Biggest ICT Show", runs from the 2nd to
the 5th September at the MIECC, Mines Resort City. Visit: http://www.acm-expo.com/
