Ignorance is bliss

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in RA News

AA is such a humble person

Over 100 over fans had the privilege to catch superstar Aaron Aziz during an exclusive hi-tea session at Tarindak D’Polo yesterday. Aaron Aziz came with his beloved wife Diyana Halik whose birthday fell on that day too. It was a great experience for the fans as they got their money’s worth as Aaron was pretty entertaining during the the Q & A sessions with the fans.

There were also some scenes re-enacted from the million dollar hit “Ombak Rindu” which brought some delights to the fans. After refreshments, the silver ticket fans had the opportunity to take photos and signatures from the celebrity.

Also present were local artistes Maria, Lily Chiam, Shian Li Chiam and Zul Faden. The event was organised by El Ricco as part of the Bliss Wedding Showcase 2012..

Recently Aaron Aziz was voted the Most Famous Actor at the Berita Harian Award and also won the Most Popular Male Film Actor award. However, his victory rose some controversies as he is a Singaporean.

Perhaps the best question answered was “Suci” when he replied to one of the fans’ question – “What’s your room number (at The Empire Hotel)?”

It was sweet that Aaron Aziz came along with his wife Diyana Halik who is also his manager

DJ Zureen was the emcee of the day

Chatworthy is worth to chat about

I’m sure not many of you know of Chatworthy but it’s something that will be a big hit on the Apps world (for IOS users) and furthermore, it was developed by our own Brunei, Keeran Janin, the founder of MeSixty. As you know with the an increasing number of people interacting on social network platforms, a huge amoung of geo-tagged is being uploaded all the time. Hence MeSixty is able to geo-tagged content that are posted and they can display items that are revelant to your preference. Now that is awesome!!

As for Chatworthy, this is an app for the iPad and iPhone that lets you discover interesting social network based on locations. For instance, you select a location in any part of the world and it will automatically rank the posts by how relevant they are to you. The bonus part is you will be able to chat with that particular person who posts up those pictures and of course, both parties must download Chatworthy to make this possible 🙂

So last month, Keeran Janin represented Brunei in the inaugural DEMO Asia which is a launchpad for emerging technology and trends which was held at Matrix @ Biopolis, Singapore. So at DEMO Asia, a hand-selected group of new products will make its public debut to global press, savvy investors, corporate acquirers, strategic partners and buys.

At DEMO Asias 2012, a total of 44 Asian startups launched their products and 32 alpha stage companies pitched their products at the event. In the past five years, DEMO companies have raised over USD 4.5 Billion after their debut at giants like Google, Microsoft, Adobe, Symantec, Yahoo! and Cisco.

So it’s quite a privilege and a honour to have MeSixty to be shorlisted as one of the companies that qualified to pitch at the DEMO Asia 2012. They had to go through an audition process among hundreds of other startups internationally.

For now, we will be waiting when “Chatworthy” app will be available for end users. You can check out the Youtube video of Keeran’s presentation during the DEMO Asia 2012.
