On 1st Oct (Thurs) 2009, together with Sambit, I attended Web Wednesday Singapore 19.0 at HomeClub. Web Wednesday Singapore is usually held on Wednesday but it was moved to Thursday for this month only as they are expecting a very distinguished guest (Randall Rothenberg) speaking with us in Singapore. Above: Ken Mandel (Chairman of IAB Singapore) giving a introduction. Ken is the vice-president and managing director of Yahoo Southeast Asia.
Randall Rothenberg is the President and CEO of the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) in the US. He’s speaking on the development of the IAB here in Singapore.
Quite a turn-out for Web Wednesday Singapore 19.0, which consisted of folks from various web-related industries. This was my view when listening to the presentation. The slides on the screen is showing the IAB Singapore Leadership Council 2009/10.
Side view from where I was standing, with a Asahi beer (1-for-1 promotion at S$12) in hand. As the presentation was done inside a club (HomeClub), the lightings was dark and also because I didn’t bother to on the flash. Haha! Beyond here, there are still more folks around. Also at the outside of the club (where we usually gathered).
Folks listening attentively to Randall. Only a small group at the back was forming their own discussions. I vaguely remembered that Andy Tu reminded them to keep the volume down. Perhaps, they are really excited about the development of IAB Singapore. 😛
A close-up shot of Randall Rothenberg during the Q&A session. Prior to and also after the talk, I did managed to get to know some folks who also attended Web Wednesday Singapore 19.0 event. It was a good networking session and I will be catching up with them individually soon. If you into web-related areas, you may also want to register yourself to get updates on the next Web Wednesday Singapore event too! Or you can contact me and we’ll attend together.
After the drinks & networking session at Web Wednesday Singapore 19.0, we took a stroll to 24hr Shah Alam Restaurant at Circular Road (Boat Quay) for our dinner. Sambit had Nasi Brayani Mutton.
Sambal Mutton – a small side dish that we shared.
I had Mee Goreng Mutton (with egg). Total paid for the Nasi Brayani Mutton, Mutton Mysore, Mee Goreng Mutton and 2 lime juice was S$16. Hmm, our dinner seems to comprise of all mutton. Wahaha!
I will be looking forward to the next Web Wednesday Singapore event!
