Quick update from CCKPL blogger's preview

There were a lot more bloggers for the CCKPL preview on Tuesday evening (maybe there was more time for people to respond).

Eight of them turned up, hosted by the CCKPL branch manager, Ms. Lim Puay Ling (and treated to a nice dinner spread -- sorry we didn't have that for YIPL preview, mrsbudak!)

There was a nice mix of familiar faces and new ones.

Preetam was one of the familiar faces. I took a shot of him demonstrating the Bookeen's Cybook eBook reader. He makes good use of the NLB eResources, regularly downloading stuff to his Bookeen.

Yi Chie was a new blogger I met. He's also the first to blog about the exclusive preview session.

He told me he was an "Infographic Journalist", working for a newspaper publisher here. Next time you folks read the papers, check out the soccer infographics (hint-hint) and see if you can find his name.

I was much impressed when he related how he got his current job, based on what he'd picked up from the library's collection of books on Photoshop and Illustrator. In fact, I don't think he's a unique case in this aspect (picking graphic skills from library books, I mean).

Will update this post if the rest of the bloggers publish something (we really left it to them).
