Singapore MVP Summit – day 3 (pt 1)

I’m now paying for my shopping sins (well, working). This morning I hit the shops in search of a new digital camera for myself and Stuart.The HP camera I brought with me decided to die and so is no good. Stuart was after a Canon IXUS 50 to give his Dad for his birthday so I thought I’d look for 2. A caught a taxi up to Mustafa’s which is in Little India. It’s a huge department store with just about anything you can think of for sale. The prices, though, didn’t seem to be as good as I’d expected so I walked … Continue reading Singapore MVP Summit – day 3 (pt 1)

Singapore MVP Summit – day 2

Very sad news – the Ferraris had all gone by the time I went outside. Turns out the event was only for the Friday night. So I’m afraid there are no pictures. After breakfast I headed out for a walk to some of the shopping complexes. There are so many in Singapore and each one is just a little bit different.

From there I walked to Orchard Road and walked almost to the far end – as … Continue reading Singapore MVP Summit – day 2

Singapore MVP Summit – day 1

So I’ve arrived in Singapore after around 7.5 hours flying. The flight left the Adelaide International Airport around 11:10am and arrived in Darwin a bit over 3 hours later. The flight itself was fine (Airbus A330-300) although the TV set for my seat didn’t work at all so no movies (caught up on some reading instead). Brief stop over in Darwin then back on the plane to Singapore. I was in a different seat and this one too had TV problems. Aparently this particular plane has more entertainment system problems than any other in the fleet so if you’re boarding … Continue reading Singapore MVP Summit – day 1

MVP Regional Summit – 3 sleeps away

On Friday I fly to Singpore for the Asia MVP Regional Summit. This will be my first big MVP get together and I’m looking forward to it. It will be a chance to meet other MVPs and talk about both technical and business related topics. Whilst it’s mostly going to be a “geek fest” I’m sure we’ll have a lot of fun. The Monday night event is scheduled to be held at the Singapore Zoo which should be amazing. So, only 3 sleeps to go. I’ll try┬áto update this blog as things happen, provided I’m not breaking any NDAs or … Continue reading MVP Regional Summit – 3 sleeps away
