As a traveler, what I fear most if definitely about my safety, what if am abducted or simply lost in the jungle or involve in  whatever mishaps? 
How will I notify my family or the authority? How will I survive?
Up till today, I still couldn’t find any device or application that is effective at tagging my location. 

That is a problem isn’t it? Do you think you have the solution for my problem? πŸ˜‰

Why don’t you put forward your idea to Standard Chartered ICT Competition and win prizes worth over RM60, 000! 


This is the 2nd time that Standard Chartered is holding its ICT Competition. I was lucky to be invited to the launching  held at The Westin Kuala Lumpur alongside some really famous bloggers such as Povy and Jessicat! πŸ˜‰



So, what is this Standard Chartered ICT Competition about? 

The competition aims to boost creativity in innovation and further enhance knowledge on ICT as well as to promote entrepreneurship amongst the university students in Malaysia. This competition is also one of Standard Chartered initiatives to help the Government to increase the country’s pool of knowledge workers and to realize the Digital Malaysia agenda.

See, Jessicat and I were already excited when they announced the prize money – we might wanna create another version of Instagram! πŸ˜›
Or maybe we should team up eh Povy and +Jessica Tan to create blogger app? How about that? Hehehe πŸ˜€

That sounds interesting! Considering their mission is to discover excellent IT innovations and to help stimulate great minds thus unleashing the innovator potential of the participants! πŸ˜€


I still remember my time when I tried to pitch in this reality show. Too bad I didn’t make to the final. Maybe this is my chance? Something more travel-ish? Hehe
