It was a full day of knowledge hunting for me concentrating on blogging, when I attended the PJ Challenge Blogger "K"arnival 09 at Jaya 33, Section 13, Petaling Jaya.
This event is to coincide with the anniversary of Petaling Jaya being granted a city status and using bloggers to spread the news is a wise move for the organisers. In the time where mainstream newspaper is getting less popular by day, the newmedia is going to be the main information source of reference for the future. The power and influence of the new media came into light after the May 8th 2008 General election Tsunami in Malaysia.
I signed up for the Kaspersky K-Klub (above) and receive this First Day Cover (below) and a T shirt.

One of the activites of the day is Learning how to blog. This session is open to wannabe bloggers who were giuded hot to set up blogs on blogger.com. There were two concurrent sessions of Blog 101. First class is open to blogger wannabe from the general public and the other is the special class which was attended by mostly the elder net enthusiast and VIP. The session for the special class was guided by Kenny Sia while another class by Euweng.

I was one of the five blogger presented with this Kaspersky Internet Security pack and a "I Love Kaspersky" T shirt for my pre event post.

NB: I am already a licensed user for this antivirus software and to date, it was a worth buy and reliable. So now what am I going to do with this pack. Definitley it will be unfair to Kaspersky for me to sell the Not For Resale pack. Ooo, maybe I'll have to buy a desktop. LOL.
FYI : Tech Lane after sales service is good considering I had a problem with the online updating of KIS and the technicians kept contacting me relating to my problem until it was solved. Thanks tech's at Tech Lane.
At the of Blog 411 session, I receive this as a momento.
