Sarawak ICT Expo 2011

>> Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Sarawak ICT expo is here again. But as usual, I believe that there will NOT be any real price drop in this expo. The ICT expo in Kuching is more to dozens of computer shop grouped together in a place to sell computer stuffs. There is no great discount, there is no new attractive stuff. Whether it's PIKOM PC fair or it's Sarawak ICT Expo, they are all the same dumb expo. Unlike Singapore and Taiwan or any other places, when they are having an ICT Expo, there will be models dressing in costumes, big promotion, big price drop and so on. That is what I call a real ICT fair.

In Singapore, the price of an item that cost few thousands SGD can have a price drop of few hundreds SGD. But in Kuching, if you can see a price drop of RM200 for a few thousands laptop, you should LAUGH TILL DIE already. Remember, they are using SGD and we are using RM and SGD 1 = RM 2.44.

The best example that I can give is this.

Do you know that the original number behind the paper is 4? That is, the original price of that laptop was SGD 1499. But during the ICT expo, the price dropped SGD 400 or about RM 980. This thing never happen in Kuching expo. This is a shame to Kuching ICT expo and computer shops. Why I know? Because I bought one at the price of SGD 1499 2 weeks before the expo. Dame! Went to Singapore at a wrong time. I have told myself to take revenge at next year Singapore ICT expo. Must go there to wipe them out.

Back to the topic. Have a look at the details about this expo below. The poster looks nice, but I wonder if the deal are as nice as the poster or not. By the way, shutlle services will be provided at reasonable price from 'The Hills Shopping mall' and 'Wisma Saberkas'. The details are in the poster.

Malaysia-China Friendship Park

>> Tuesday, August 30, 2011

The Malaysia-China Friendship Park(马中公园) was built in 2005 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Malaysia-China diplomatic relations.

It holds a land area of 2.8 hectares and is located at Tabuan Heights, Jalan Song, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. At the park, you will be able to see a big statue of Zheng He, standing above a big ship, a Chinese architectural style restaurant and many more.

It is a beautiful park where people gather for sports activities like tai chi, jogging, exercising, and even dancing. Of course, it is also a favorite location for dating, especially at night. If you visit the park at night, you will see many sweet couples sitting on the benches, chatting, hugging and even kissing.

So, if you come to Kuching next time, have a visit there.
