Life Bits

Life is full of moments to capture and remember. In this category, I will capture bits of my life with words and possibly some pictures.

Lessons from a promoter at IT Show 2011

There are always so many things to look at in a once a quarter consumer electronics show such as the IT Show 2011. Today’s trip was yet another different kind of experience for me. Apart from the latest gadgets, I looked at how promoters attempted to sell their product.

Most promoters performed live demonstration for the use of their products to the audience. There were some who walked through the features of their products themselves and there were those who engaged the audience to try out their products. Although, quite a number managed to attract a group of bystanders to look at their product, not many achieve a high volume of sales.

Only one of them managed to led me and my brother to buy his product. As much as I was amazed by his product, I was even more amazed at his approach in selling his product.

What does fortune means for me

The word “fortune” was prominent in my recent conversations. The people I met in this new stage of life do not ponder over the many assignment deadlines and exams. Instead, these people stress the limited hours of life and speak ideas of how to maximize living. Naturally, the biggest motivation in life will be to attain as much fortune as we can.

Going deeper into unchartered territory

Prior to working, I had been playing with PHP, HTML/CSS, MySQL intensively. Although many people had claimed that building web applications is easy, but it is very challenging to create web applications which brings about great user experience. There are many considerations to make, including the back end processing side of things and the aesthetics side of things. However, I am always in the game because of the many rich resources made possible by fellow players, especially people from Smashing Magazine.
