The Earlier Coming Chinese New Year in 2012

That will be many events activities and promotions during Chinese New Year period, especially the weeks before Chinese New Year.

The 2012's Chinese New Year was happened in a really early date, which at 23th January 2012 (first of Chinese New Year) instead of every years' about 4th-6th February for first day of Chinese New year.

Meanwhile, there were really less than a month for and Chinese New Year related commercial activities to be held. If look around around, you will noticed that on the 2nd day of the Christmas Day, you starting to hear many shopping mall playing Chinese New Year related theme songs and the decoration worker was rushing to put on Chinese New Year related decorations.

We only got about 21 days left for related Chinese New Year theme stuffs promotion since 2012's Chinese New Year Eve fall on 22nd January 2012. It became very tight schedule for all the related event set up.

Many event companies was really busy planning and preparing for Chinese New Year related event at least few weeks ago before Christmas Day I guests.

Entertainer Who perform using only Microphone: Comedian and Music Instrument Performance using Special Skill

Beside Emcee and singers who using their talking/ conversations or speech skills during the events, I met 2 special entertainers recently, they are using their special skill to present their talent through microphone; the first one I like to highlight is Charles Beatboxer.

Charles, is an entertainer who able to create many different sound of music instrument by using his mouth through the microphone.

I had seen Charles performing in Orchard road many times and met him so many times in many events but no chance to see his stage performance due to always rushing for other shows or appointment after the job done for the event booking.

I had seen Charles' performing in Orchard few times, then few years later, which I met him during a company's Xmas party weeks ago, I found his skill really improved a lot and having fantastic performance.

Charles had combine some songs in his "Music instrument playing simulated by mouth", meanwhile he was singing and play the "music instrument by mouth" at the same time! The was gorgeous! I believe he had a real bright future ;p

Another great Comedian i came across just few days ago was this Caucasian (ang mo) who performing at "The Loof" for a company's annual dinner.

His great stunning skill was he can speak so many local language like Hokien, Mandarin, Thai Language and etc. If you hear him speak Thai without seeing his face, you might though just a thaiees speaking, if you hear him speaking indian language without seeing his face, you can;t believe he is an "Ang mo"! ...that kind of level! Haahaa! What a talent!

Event Booking Hot Day

Up to today (7 Dec) still having many people inquire caricaturist for 9th December Friday 6.30pm-7.30pm event like dinner and dance or Christmas Party. 9 Dec really a super hot date for events fringe art activities!

I repeat again: Many event companies had asking the same item same timing and same day since early October, so that will be very difficult to get caricaturist since November i guess, unless they managed to get art students to do fulfill the requirement.

An experienced caricaturist who doing commercial events like dinner and dance and dance, the quantities to be produce at least 12-20pcs drawing within an hour's booking, other than that, he or she should know how to bring in the entertainment atmosphere to the event as well as know how to handle the crowd.

Based the past experiences on the below hot date of booking caricaturists and silhouette artists, the event peoples and whoever who like to hire such fringe activities, seems they have to make decision fast enough, else just try avoid this hot date.

Last few years' hot Friday of December for caricaturists and silhouette cutting artist booking on 6.00pm-7.00pm or 6.30pm - 7.30pm:
Friday, 09 Dec 2011

Friday, 11 Dec 2009
Friday, 12 Dec 2008

Tablet PC Symptom

Due to the popularity of tablet PC, more and more people using it as a communication tools, due it many of the tablet PC unable to use as a phone that allow it to perform sending SMS like normal mobile phone, it made more people communicate with each other through email; this is my observation and experience within the pass 6 months.

Seems is was a trend that change many people's behavior in communication.

In my view, seems anyone of us who had not have any tablet PC yet, should try our best to check our email as often as possible to avoid any job taken delay and related stuffs that cause us having an unexpected "slow reaction" to reply our clients or friends in such circumstances.

Thought the popularity usage of tablet PC is because it was very easy to use especially for those who no computer literacy (especially for elder group) and also due to the light weight of this device.

Chinese Paper Cutting Preparation

As per next year's Chinese New Year is coming earlier at 22nd January Sunday as Chinese New Year Eve, there were some event companies start to inquiry some related fringe arts activities, including my Chinese paper cutting. Seems I have to work harder to prepare the time consuming Chinese paper pre-cut zodiac and related designs.Due to usually Chinese new year fall on 2nd-14th Feb, year of 2012's Chinese new year came quite early, hence there are shorter time for event companies to arrange Chinese New Year's activities, therefore many event management was asking related stuffs start from this month.
