Lucky to have all our trainees in the company these days, without them, we will not be having a press conference full house! I know that feeling of faxing and calling. Haha. Now, back to handling press conferences as usual, we got to meet up some of the familiar faces of the media and press. Kawanku!
11 days more to Sunset Music Fest 2016! I was so nervous to get the event flyers and the website done. Thank you, Melissa and Ronnie. The press conference starts at 4pm, so why not we make things a little prettier by giving out the flyers to the media? Rather than to collect it from the event venue which is at the Tip of Borneo?
Once we arrived at the Conference Room in Sabah Tourism Board, I was shocked that some of the media came earlier than me! “Well, because parking is a big headache at Gaya Street”, they told me. Ha! Prepared all press kits and got the media to sign their attendances, I even got a chance to learn how to shoot from the video camera since we still have a little time while waiting for the rest to come. The funny thing was, I tried to figure out how to use the camera and I spotted the word ‘Tourism’ and not ‘Sabah Tourism’ on the screen! Had to tell the media quickly tho, because he found the best spot to shoot! “Tipu lahhh…”, “BETUL!” He got to find the right spot to shoot again. Lucky to tell him earlier.
Here’s a selfie at work. I bet most of them saw that we took a wefie too. And look who’s photobooming?! The press conference went well with several questions popped out from the media asking about the accommodation in Kudat. Over the years, all hotels will be fully booked during this month. But fret not, there will be no other major events going on in Kudat and Sunset Music Fest will be the only event at the Tip of Borneo this year on the 4th June. So, buy your tickets and book your hotels early!
Felt honoured that The Deep Buskers remembers me. We dined at the same table during Sabah Tourism Awards last year. And I got to meet up with the leader of Matlankidz and Brothers after interviewing him for his band profile yesterday! 30 mins… remember? 30 mins interview! Other performers that you will be seeing at this year’s Sunset Music Fest are Marsha, Farhan and Dafi from Akademi Fantasia (AF), Esther Applunius and D’ Franciscan Uke Onsoi!
In conjunction with the Sunset Music Fest, MASwings is offering up to 70% discount on flights to Kota Kinabalu (travel period between 27 May to 12 June 2016). They are also sponsoring free air tickets to Sandakan, Mulu and Tawau during the lucky draw at the festival!
So now let’s wait til the event day! www.sunsetmusicfest.my
