My Company's Exhibition

During the last month, I was busy with preparation for our company's exhibition. Well, actually that wasn't exhibition for commercial purpose. It was an exhibition for government programs. But still, it needs trade show exhibits to make it run well.

The preparation itself needed lot of times. My team was assigned to prepare the material needs for exhibition. In the mean time, I had to contact an event sponsor (organizer)to help us assist with selecting exhibit space and more event services.
After preparing space for booths, that was a time to choose representative booths with low budget.
Well yeah, it's true, we don't have any exhibition items. So another alternative at that time was "rent" it from a recommended company. Fortunately, we found the one which offered us a variety exhibition items with low budget.

One day before the exhibition, the booths was full with well-ordered table. There was table, table and table. As long as you can see, table was everywhere!
To make it more attractive, we used printed table covers which about represented the subject of exhibition. And at one corner, we used a table top display with panel system, which will inform the guests and the visitors about our company.

At the main stage, we also set the booths with some of director chairs on it (of course we choose the best one made of the hardwood material). Those was purposely set for our director and the main guests in the main show.
Well,honestly, it was such exhausted preparation at all. But, fortunately, we set all well, and those was the best experience ever!

Ebay oh Ebay...

During November 2010 - January 2011, I was in Washington DC. Yeah, the capital of US. Yippie!! That was my first time going abroad, and might be my only time stepping on US. ^_^

During my short internship (yes, I was in Internship, which means i was on duty), I was eager to feel and experience how to shop in Ebay.

Honestly, I'm not sure enough to shop while I'm in Indonesia, 'coz you know, things like tax duty, and etc, makes me sick about it.
In case I was there, at the top of the world (really???), finally, I decided to purchase somethings (with a lot of "s" behind, hehehehe).

First, I was looking for any cheaper and cheapest jewelry, which in Indonesia, a numerous tiny jewelry costs a huge amount. hmmm...
And after searching searching and searching... voila! Found it!

Using a credit card borrowed from friend (yes, I didn't have any CC at that time if u asked me '_' ), i was verifying my account in ebay, and getting start to purchase online.

For a shipping address, I wrote my office address on it. And only in 2 weeks, I received the item that I wanted. I wonder that in Indonesia I'm going to experience the same. :(

Getting excited with what I got, I continued to buy and buy..
Well, it was such a great experience, I think. Just imagine, You can get what do you want, only with a cheap and cheaper price.

Getting close with the time I should go back To Indonesia, I decided to purchase and change my shipping address to my home at Indonesia.
And you know, from 5 item I bought, only 1 item arrived successfully (and even it arrived within 1.5 months. Goooossshhh!!). And how are you, my 4 items?
Until I write this, I still don't accept it yet.
And I'm asking to my self? Who do I need to blame on? The Seller, or My country tax duty?
