It was a meet for bloggers also!

Blogsphere is popping out to be a medium increasingly gaining popularity for promotional activities. In West Malaysia, bloggers are making inroad into commercial world of advertisements to gain a foothold. This trend is likely to gather momentum in time to come.
The idea came from Philip Hii about three months back. I tried it out this morning with our publicity release on our new band "The Life Line Band" and our food promotions.
Besides the mainstream news media, I also called in some popular local bloggers to cover the session. It worked out qyite well for the first try-out.
Philip Hii (www.rubberseeds.blogspot.com ), Steve Ling (www.stevelinglt.blogspot.com ) and Victor Kiu (www.victorkiu.com ) are obliging enough to turn up for both a meet and a session of promotions.
The morning was more than just getting down serious on foods and artistes - the occasion proved to be an excellent time for the few bloggers and reporters to rub shoulders and chat over foods and drinks. It was a sort of mini bloggers' meet!
Our hotel is promoting several food items at both cafe Palmelia and Bamboo House to entice customers. To whet their appetite, we seek to blend quality, creativity and tastes into one to come out with delectable delicacies. From claypot to seafood galore, you stand a good chance to have your taste buds tickled and mouth watering.
You don't have have to be a gourmet to appreciate all the promoted dishes. Come and dip your fingers in to find out!
