Another Gold award to end the year!
date: 4-6 december, 2015
Venue: KLCC Convention centre
Alhamdulillah. SOC’s product, given a persona name BacaDisleksia has won gold during PECIPTA 2015. It was worth the effort.
Our team consist of Dr Husniza, Dr Mustafa and me – I was the only one travel by UUM bus from Sintok to KL. Dr Husniza have already flewn earlier. Dr Mustafa cannot join us due to some other circumstances.
We arrived around 5.30 pm, and straight away went to the convention centre. Setting up our booth took about an hour or so. This, was with help from my ever hardworking Hubby and Sons (S, M, & I).
Early morning, 4th Dec 2015, three judges came to our booth. The judging session took about 20 minutes. I took the opportunity to ‘sell’ our product promoting all the special features that BacaDisleksia has. My aim was not to convince the judges but to share our new ideas on how we can better assist dyslexic children to read. I guess they also realised the special features that we introduced in the prototype…
Our booth is one of the most popular. Our product attracts the crowd most of the time. Pity Dr Jaja (and me!) who has to hold event if we feel like going to the ladies…Really heve to sneak out for food/pray/…anyway, we are happy!
Event like this is normally a platform to meet new friends as well as old friends!. I met many of my successful students–some are exhibitors, some are visitors.
The result was announced on the 6th Dec. I am glad that our product contributes another gold to UUM. At least I have made Prof Chom (the director of RMIC) happy.
The results can also be obtained from the PECIPTA official website.
