It was exciting to be at Startup Camp KL today, although missing the first part of the day. Was certainly fantastic to meet big man Daniel Cerventus (@cerventus) and also fellow Twitterers – Arzumy (@arzumy) and Evelyn (@missyblurkit) again. First keynote I attended was “Social Change: Leading Tribes and Creating Infectious Action” by Kal Joffres, Partner, Tandem Consulting Group. Insight into creating and spreading viral ideas. Next up came “7 Deadly Sins of An Entrepreneur” by Dr Sivapalan of TeAM which was incredibly informative and entertaining. Possibly one of the best keynotes I’ve heard in a while.
The first-ever Malaysian Entrepreneurs Night Out was held last night at Nomad Offices, Pavilion KL. Organised with MoBIG, the event was themed “Businesses and Opportunity with Mobile Industry with Google”. The goal of the meet was to understand the mobile landscape in Malaysia more. However, unfortunately for the 30-odd attendees, the Google boys could not make it in time due to another appointment, so we made do with some insight from Jeff Bannister of Orbitage who talked about “Opportunities in the Mobile Industry.” Continue Reading330 0
Mighty Grey FC edged BBDO in the finals of the just-concluded Corbis Futsal Cup 2008. High-scoring Grey FC not only won the 2nd installment of the Corbis Cup, but also won Best Dressed Team. Forward Rowan added another feather on the cap for Grey FC by winning the Golden Boot award with a whopping 11 goals.
The day saw exciting and competitive game play and the 24 teams battled with heart, sweat (and some blood) and plenty of soul.
Unfortunately for the defending champions GanForHire Allstars, we lost in the very tough Group stage with one win, one draw and one loss. The tournament saw some upsets, with last year’s runners-up TBWA and superstar team O&M failing to advance beyond the quarterfinals. If it was any consolation, the very, very yummilicious Hot Chilis cheerleading team from O&M won the Best Cheerleading Team award.
Big kudos to Corbis for a fantastic event and congrats to the winners! Our promise… we’ll be back stronger, better next year.

The feeling is almost indescribable. Ok, maybe I’m exaggerating a little. It’s a feeling that borders on ecstatic. And triumph, exhaustion, relief all rolled into one. It’s a wonderful feeling. We went in as the GanForHire Allstars, and promised to give us our best shot and have fun. And best we did give, and had lots of fun too in the process!
The Corbis Inter-Agency Futsal Tournament saw 16 teams divided into 4 groups for round-robin preliminary match-ups.
