Today finally I need to face reality to work for living. Yes, I still in the mood of holiday, but reality is there, so yeah, I am here in my workplace.
Last week I really have a great time with all bunch of Steemians that are same minded to made our first event successful. Without each and everyone in their first place, I believe we will not success to pull this happened.
Talking back to the early stage, actually this already been planned for so long and I believe our steem ambassador @danieldoughthy,@veenang and our steem witness @bitrocker2020 are putting a lot of effort in it. Due to some circumstances, the earlier plan cannot been success and they are changing to another plan. So at last the plan are doing Borneo Blockchain Summit.
So on the first stage, each and everyone of us are doing funding post to fund for all the event fees. while our founder and steem witness are putting a lot of hardwork to get sponsors and partners for the event. So each one of us are doing our own things to help out and make all the job done. For my side, you can read my funding post here, here, here, here, here, here,here.
Next, we are having our first meeting and that time we are ready and know what work that we should do and what will we need to handle and aware when the event is running. We have a great team that doing every part and making sure all the things are done on place.

After the meeting, we are almost ready for the things and waiting the event day to come.
On 7th of September, I been appointed to be driver to pick up all speakers that coming. So on the day I am picking up @buzz.lightyear. After picking up Mr Buzz, we are heading to UMS for the event dry run and also briefing. As expected, some technical things happened and at last we manage to pull the thing done. Thanks to @nickychu that sponsoring the microphone equipment and make the event more successful. After done the event dry run, I rushed to pick up @quantumwarrior and the team. After pickup them and sending them to hotel, we are move to another agenda which is the networking session at The Box Lintas. It is a very good session as we can have a chit chat and meetup with all the speakers and volunteer. Due to delay of Chan Wei Chi flight, after the networking session, me and @lizachong heading to airport to wait for last speakers to arrive. So its mark the end of day 1 of my job.

After that we are ready to go and heading to UMS for the real event. When we arrive, a lot of people are already waiting there and having their tea and coffee. At here really thankful to all usherer and registration team that put a lot of hardwork. They even need to carry a lot of heavy things to help out. Really thankful for all the girls power. Bravo..
So the event started with the arrival of our YB Jennifer Lasimbang. I am happy to know that our government are really supporting our initiative and project. She also very happy to see such initiative are going around and hoping we can continuously do this for the community and also people so that we can use blockchain to bring up all things for our daily life.

Yes it is, after his talk, I been approached by few audiences that wanted to know more about what is Steemit and teach them how to sign up.

Next we are having Chan Wei Chi which is from Sinegy to sharing some tips how to do investment through Ico and also some tips how to validate before investing.
