Malaysia's First BlackBerry Community Gathering by RIM

As many of you might have already know, I founded the BlackBerry Malaysia Community(BBMYC) fan page on Facebook back in May 2009. Since then the fan page has grown from zero to almost 16,000 fan based today. All these was achieve without spending a single cent on marketing.

The tremendous growth of the fan page caught the attention of Research in Motion (RIM), and they decides to talk to me on the future of the fan page. The result of the discussion? Well RIM will manage BlackBerry Malaysia fan page while the fan page which I managed will be rename to BlackBerry Malaysia Community to avoid confusion among BlackBerry fan. In return RIM will continue to provide me with support and exclusive invites for all my fan to all BlackBerry's event held in Malaysia.

The first event which was organised after the successful negotiation was the Malaysia's First BlackBerry Community Gathering held last Friday. The party took place at Top Hat Restaurant which is about 2 minutes drive from KLCC.

Oh well, I will let these hot and juicy photo tell the story,

The event saw close to 150 BlackBerry fan from various walk of life attending.

As most people would have already know, Malaysia is a heaven for food and a party wouldn't be consider successful without some nice and juicy food to satisfy everyone's taste bud.
