BarCamp Cambodia (Phnom Penh)

BarCamp Cambodia

BarCamp Cambodia

When i left manila for Ho Chi Minh last year, i thought that id have to wait for another 3-4 years (or a lucky vacation) before I – again join an offline gathering of online network such as Manila’s Blog Parteeh, Blog Awards, Taste Asia, Blog Summits, etc.

LUCKILY & surprisingly – such events exists in a heritage rich country such as Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Tomorrow – September 20, 2008, hundreds of enthusiasts from all walks of life with different culture will meet in one huge event dubbed BarCamp Phnom Penh.

Wikingly speaking:

BarCamp, an innovative “impromptu” gathering that began in 2005 in Palo Alto, California, helps “open source” enthusiasts share information about technology in an informal setting. The idea quickly spread from California to the rest of the world, arriving in Bangkok in January 2008 and now in Phnom Penh. It’s an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from participants.

Jayson, Udom and I will attend the said event. At some point, to represent our company – Mag-Alliance, Publisher of Cambodia’s Funkiest Magazine G21.

Till then, see you guys tomorrow!

Excess: You’d be surprise that its only now, as of my blogging, that ive learned that we had our own BarCamp in Manila last August 21 🙂

It is with utmost pride and excitement that i greet my soon-to-be wife (yeah, take time nestle, take time!) slash sexy mom of my daughter kyle aiken slash my loving best friend girlfriend JOYCE a happy happy happy anniversary! Yup, today 9/9 marks a year of our telenovela-like relationship 😛 Imagine Maging Sino Ka Man, My Girl, Sana Maulit Muli put to one show hehe…

We’ve been going out a lot these few days – casino launch at a new hotel, choco buffet, wine and cheese at hotel intercontinental so yeah – no fancy date today the 9th 😛

Gift? I LOVE IT. She’s not that sentimental-whateverness when it comes to gift. Tell her what you want and she’ll get it for you – upfront! She gave me this battery grip that ive been drooling over for my d40. Ain’ t that sweet?

Anyway im cutting the drama short, i still have that “forever” to blog about it… so till then, cheers everyone!
