OctTwtFest Thru My La Sardina Camera

My Lomo adventure at OctTwtFest with the objective of meeting fellow Twitterers and make new friends at the same time.

Credits: spectre

Shah Alam, Malaysia: Just last Saturday (3pm – 12 am, October 23, 2011), DiGi held an OctTwtFest at their headquarters and organized by WAGO, Churp Churp, Rain Dough and Reka. The OctTwtFest objective for this year is:

1. To gather at least 1,500 tweeps to attend this twtup
2. To put Malaysia on the map, and beat the current Guinness Book of Record which currently stands at 1,935 attendees at a venue for a twtup
3. To unlock the Epic Swarm Badge (more than 1000 check-ins at a venue)

An avid and active twitter user myself, I could not resist myself going there. I quickly RVSP my attendance on their websites despite it being far from my house and limited public transportation around that area. I decided to carpool and arrived around 6 pm when the party goers started arriving in huge waves trying to register themselves to gain access to the venue under heavy rain and thunderstorm. By the way, I brought my La Sardina Fischers Fritze along, tightly wrapped in a water proof bag for a quick Lomo action at OctTwitUp. The OctTwitUp is brimming with activity where hungry folks are buying food and drinks, singing along to musical performances by famous artists and taking pictures with them, playing PS3 games or board games at the meeting room, watching movies, buying OctTwtFest clothes or toys while donating at same time, and most importantly, checking-in thru FourSquare whether they are android, iPhone or BlackBerry users or even using the free PC provided by the organizer.

Thanks to hardwarezone.com, I found out the OctTwtFest successfully garnered 2,615 check-ins on Twitter, breaking the previous world record of 1,935 check-ins held by Detroit Lions football player, Ndamukong Suh. Misson accomplished!

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1

    Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!
