>> Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Surabay Creative Expo was held from 26th to 30st October 2011. I was maintain on one booth there. I thought it just a common expo, It is but I was surprised. The Participants not only from East Java but also from Bali. For example, Blueberry, a guitar manufacturer from Bali. Other things that surprised me is Lisa ( read about Lisa here), she has a booth there.

Surabaya Creative Expo 2011 was opened by the Mayor of Surabaya, Ir Tri Rismaharini, MTT. A lot of things there, there were workshop, seminar, live music, a lot of booth etc. As I told you before, some of them are from Bali. But, The one that attract me is Blueberry, it's not a brand of local cell phone. It's a brand of a guitar with beautiful engraving on it's surface.
