Finally is the day, Imagine Cup 2011 Malaysia local final at Kuching, Sarawak. I took an early flight from Penang to Kuching together with Team 1StepAway and Team Vertex. It was a smooth ride I can said. Actually I though Imagine Cup this year will be roughly the same with last year at Pulau Langkawi, but I was wrong. This year is more grand, huge and lot nicer compare with last year.
This year Imagine Cup Malaysia is held at Pullman Kuching Hotel. It was really a nice hotel for having Imagine Cup 2011 Malaysia. While all the competitions whom already arrival are busy setting up and declaring their booth, I run around and took some pictures of the event. One thing I notice this year is, most competitions come with well prepare compare with last year. They bring a lot of stuffs to declare the booth, equipments for tomorrow booth presentation, their own team T-shirt and so on. Well done. I can see the quality of Imagine Cup this year has improved compare with last year.
Other then that, the MSP team also prepared a lot of fun activities for the competitors. For example, MSP team is giving 3 minutes to each team to share what they want to tell the others about Imagine Cup. I see a lot of team come out with very creative way to express their idea. Besides, MSP team is also prepare a lot of activity to keep our competitors busy tomorrow, so that they can enjoy the most out of it tomorrow (let’s not let the cat out of the bag yet). Not to forget the Kinect and XBox game tomorrow too. Good jobs MSP teams!
After brief all the competitors the flow of the competition. A welcoming dinner is waiting for us. We are having our welcoming dinner at Grand Margherita Hotel instead. A thumb up for this one too. We have a live dance and live band for the dinner. Of course great food as well. Aren’t it just sound like the international Imagine Cup? At the end of the dinner, all team went up to the stage to receive a token of participating in Imagine Cup 2011 Malaysia. Some of the teams even bring their university’s flag. Sweet!
I super duper looking forward to tomorrow event where Top 30 teams need to present their idea to everyone. I will definitely run around and learn as many stories as I can. Interesting day waiting for me. Check out the picture.
