it was my first to India. for work of course. we had a short International Agent conference held by Curtin Perth and i was fortunate to be chosen representing Curtin Sarawak.

Kochi or Cochin is a very historical city like Melaka i can say. it was conquered by Dutch long time ago. would not bored you with historical facts here.

people every where was nice to us. me and one of the Curtin reps from Nepal had a chance to roam around Cochin the whole day.

Asia Music Festival Day 1 ( Music and People )

But last year I do remember that we have big bikers show. I think that have contributed to the bigger crowd last year. Further to that we have local band performing on day 1 & 2 such as the Starlets band and Mountain band. And we have Sarawak local talent such as Melissa Francis and Hevance band. Not forgetting Bob Yusuf too. I think that really  attract the local people to come.This year, STB have offered free shuttle service from four locations. But it seems like Miri people did not think that is attractive. Wish I knew why? Hmmm.. Anyway Hari Raya Haji holidays might have contributed to this lesser crowd …
