This one is a little behind, but about a month ago I was invited by the Stickman’s gang to give a talk at a resort somewhere on thefamous highlands we have here in Malaysia.
It was for a bloggers conference at the Awana Resort, which is under the Resorts World Group. I didn’t know what to expect or what to talk about but nevertheless I took up the offer and the following week I was driving up the mountain to give a talk to a group of bloggers who am I not sure if they would be interested in listening to my lame stories on my comic blogging adventures.
As much as I may be funny in my comics, trust me I make a very bad stand up comedian. At least I think so.
But in terms of my experience on giving the talk, it was a prime example of expectation versus reality.
|Priorities. I need them fixed.|
So, even though I expected to be giving my talk in a nice hotel ballroom but giving it in the middle of a forested area proved to be quite an experience as well. Everyone was sitting on the longhouse floor and decorations of Halloween were hanging around the room. It felt warm and casual as compared to giving a talk on a proper stage. It felt like I was a tiny television in a room with one big happy family watching me and the TV program they were watching was an awful guy in purple.
I do hope the participants did learn something from my talk but it was apparent that they were enjoying my comic strips more as everyone was laughing. It was beautiful. I had no idea my comics held such power. I may be awful at trying to be funny behind the microphone but thankfully my comics did a better job than me.
Loved the grilled fish.
Have a great week ahead!
