As an East Malaysian Advertlet blogger, I received the email inviting 5 bloggers in Kuching to cover the DiGi Fu-yoh! event at the Amphitheatre on 9th June, Saturday night. After some consideration, I decided to give it a miss. I figured I’ll most likely be there to cover it for the entertainment column anyway and didn’t have to deprive someone else of a pass.
In case Advertlet or anyone else is wondering how they fared, they behaved like responsible rookie reporters – armed with a pass that will let them go ANYWHERE, yet not taking full advantage of it. Not necessarily a bad thing though. I’m sure they got the photos/videos they needed while trying to cause as little inconvenience as possible.
Anyway, since I know exactly who they are and why they’re there, I decided to document their assignment. Enjoy.

I think Advertlet did right by teaming with a major advertiser like DiGi, who can offer this kind of opportunity to bloggers in East Malaysia. If there’s one thing that annoys us, it’s the fact that everything happens in KL. It’s good to know that one company is looking a bit further (ahead).
So if you’re on this side of the country and haven’t checked out Advertlet yet, you should so you’ll get a shot of making your blog cough up some form of reward for your all your hard work on it. Maybe there’s another event to cover… but next time, you might have to fight me for it.
