Yesterday, my phone rang and it was Dewi.
"Nuffnang called just now and asked me if I'd like to attend a press conference about ... DiGi award ... something like that. Would you like to come with me?"
"Do I have to wear formal or casual?"
"Don't know. Just wear anything."
I thought it was a good opportunity to go to this event because I've never been to any press conference before. I felt kinda nervous. Mestilah nervous sebab ni first time gi press conference.
blog and he posts videos on YouTube too. And he's only 9, if I'm not mistaken. He talks mostly about guns (not the real guns) and life experiences (apparently this 9 year old boy has so many life experiences that he's able to talk about it in his blog). IMPRESSIVE I must say!
After the chitchat session with Jacob, Su Lin (one of the committees of this DiGi WWWOW Awards) announced that Malaysia is the 16 ... or is it 18 ... I'm not sure ... never mind ... country in the world that has the largest number of Facebook users. And she went on explaining more statistics but that's not really the point. The point of the press conference is to inform us (all of us) that DiGi in collaboration with other vendors ; MSN Malaysia, Yahoo! Malaysia, Nuffnang, Lowyat.net, MAS, Mudah.com.my, Google Malaysia and Flickr is going to organize DiGi WWWOW Awards 2011.
