Whoa, today actually went by pretty well. I was there at about 12.30pm and had a look around, got some sugar apples, ciku and blueberries when I was browsing the produce section of Cold Storage of Ikano.
Met up with quite a number of LowYat.Net members too who were very helpful at helping me out during the talk and also giving me support. Thank you so much guys.
Anyway, Petster’s 2nd Bite event wasn’t much of a crowd puller. The talk was suppose to start at 2pm but we had to start later, about 30 minutes later. Why? There was just too little people. So a group of us decided to visit the pet shop on the 2nd floor of Ikano to see if we can pull some people to the talk. Hahaha, I guess we made a few people stare at us since we walked in a group, with our gliders sitting on our shoulders. We did manage to get a few to join our talk but we were very disappointed to see that the shop had underage joeys, huddling over a half eaten apple. The joeys were wet, scruffy and obviously malnourished. With a bright light just a few inches from them, I bet their eyes were burning. Poor babies.
Ok, back to the talk. I definitely had fun. I started off very shaky, well, that’s normal I guess but soon I got the crowd to participate a little. Overall, it went pretty well. We manage to pass around caresheets in Malay, Chinese and English. The LowYat.Net members did a good job explaining to people about their gliders when they went around to talk individually. We did some glider toss with some random people, a bit of showing off on the rope swing and let people handle our gliders. Pretty good today.
I’m quite happy with how it went. When I started the talk, there were just a few people but thank goodness more showed up and I didn’t get too uncomfortable. We were disappointed that there was no projector, so I could not show my slides that I had prepared the night before. Reanne helped me out with a few small topics.
I hope tomorrow would be better.
For the 1st of June talk, it would be at 4pm. Come and join us at the open area just next to ACE hardware. Look out for Petster Magazine’s banner.
