9 Days @ Sibu

Lets continue the post of my 9 days Sibu Trip from 27th June until 5th July. We went there for Celcom Roadshow which held at the Borneo Cultural Festival. The Borneo Cultural Festival is the annual event of Sibu which like our Kuching Festival. Once we reach Sibu, we went to the BCF location to survey our booth. We were so shock after we reached there because the area for this event was so big, if you know where is Wisma San Yan, then you should know how big is the field in front of that building. Not only that, the area of this event still include the open space that as big as the our Kuching Festival area which opposite the big field in front of Wisma San Yan. Unfortunately, I just manage to take some photos of this event because we start work everyday when the event start and finish the work when the event ends.

*This is the open area that I mentioned, and this is where we worked.

*Rainbow spotted at the first day before we start our work.

*Photo taken from the place I worked.

*The photo was too blur to shows the happenings.

*Traffic Jam during the festival.

Every night, we were at the same place for our job. And it's hard for us to promote the Celcom stuff because this festival is not same as PC Fair. For PC Fair, everyone is going to buy something but for this festival, most of the people went there to walk around, eat and look for something interesting. And it's quite bored for us to doing the same things everynight. Luckily, there's some programmes arranged to attract customer such as live performance. Celcom invite local artist, the borneo headhunter, ERNESTO to perform at the fifth night. Although this is the first time I heard about ERNESTO, but he's quite popular in Sibu. May be some freinds in Kuching know him also. I recommend one of his song, "Seribu Satu", this song is nice and it's also the only song I like throughout his whole album "1001".

*The fans of ERNESTO, borneo headhunter.

*At least this help to increase some sales.

*ERNESTO, the one with long hair.

*Many people ask for his signature poster.

*Yeah!! Tat's Mr. Mat Cool from other booth.

During our last night at BCF, and also the time that we fight for our sales, part of the event area suddenly blackout. Although this situation last for 20 minutes, but it keep on happen for around 4 to 5 times. And this make us really bo xim because no customers at all. So, we just wait the time to pass.

*Can't do anything at all in this situation!!!

*Celcom Promoter with the "blue ears".

*Soi Zai and Roy!!! Looks scary or not??

*Me and Soi Zai!! Can you see a face behind us??

We worked 8 nights for the celcom roadshow in this Borneo Cultural Festival, but it's different stories during our days time. Every morning, we just go to our shop near night market there to train the new staff that just hired by boss.

*Smoking time!!!

*The face of "pek cek"!!!

After few days of training, we let them go to look for sales around the night market area, and we just stay at the office to wait for them. Sometimes, we also followed them so that we can know how's their attitude towards their job. And it's quite boring and tired also if we just stay at the office to wait for them to come back. When we feel bored, it's time to find something meaningless to do.

*Our new trained tattoo master, SOI ZAI!!!

*Don't know what the stupid things he draw. And guess who's hand is it??

*ROY and the tattoo!!!

Normally, we will be at shop from morning until 4.30pm. After that, we will go for dinner because the BCF is going to start on 6.00pm every evening. We mostly went to KFC for our dinner, the one located at Sibu Gateway because we always when that place to photostate our flyers. After dinner while we waiting for our flyers to be done, some of us spent our time at the park there.

*This one only know how to smoke!!!

*Roy with his chinese horoscope, "COW"!!

*Actually, I'm so pai seh when taking this photo because many people was looking at us.

We always doing the same things for this 9 days at Sibu. Every morning wake up, breakfast, office, lunch, office, dinner, BCF, supper then back to room. There's nothing much we can do when we're at Sibu because we were there for working purpose. Although there's something unhappy happen but we still have a lot of fun at Sibu and we also tried many delicious food which I mentioned my previous post, Sibu Again!!!
