ahahahaha. oh man. funny stuff.
yesterday was an amazing experience. the company where i intern (exhibitgroup/giltspur. check it out they're really cool. e-g.com) was doing a huge event for LG. it was held at Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in times square. they cleared the whole place after like 12 so our workers could set up and stuff. by the time me and my co-workers got there to help set-up, it was CRAZY. people running around everywhere, installing cellphones, pdps, lcds, refridgeraters, dishwashers, washer & dryers, banners, tables for the bars, food trays... ohmygod it was insane.
the funny thing is, the wax people are all there, so theres like 20 in one room, and theres like 4 rooms and its just FREAKY. i was soooo weirded out the first 30 minutes i was there. one of the workers knocked over a wax model and the face shattered. not cool. i dont know who it was because i wasnt there. so me as the intern is running my ass off running here and there up and down to set up allll the spec cards for the products, checking to see if the banners are correct, seeing that all the products are in the right place blah blah blah. but it was an such a cool experience because i got to see all the behind-the-scenes activity for a big event. oh god, let me tell you, it is CRAZY.
so after making sure everything is perfect, we are DONE. literally one minute before 6. my coworkers told me that its always like that. never 5 minutes before the show, always one minute. so as me and the head designer are running to the main room, we almost head on collide into this old korean ahjushi holding a martini with a big posse of korean ahjushis behind him. the lady on his right introduces the head designer to the ahjushi. turns out hes the ceo of LG. what a BIG BALLER. hes probably so rich. i should go marry his son. anyways. so i was in awe that i just met him and his posse. haha we get back into the main room and its already full with guests. since this event was for press and media, all the people there were from magazines, tv, newspapers, internet people for all the electronic things. yea. SBS and KBS was there filming the whole thing. i hope i was on tv. haha well i didnt stay for the whole event, just the cocktail hour for the free drinks. weeeeeeeeeeee! it was lots of fun, you know when people are getting drunk when they accidently run into the wax people and go, 'oh excuse me' only to realize that its...wax. funny. i think i was the youngest person there. i feel so honored. haha
oh yea. yesterday was also the unveiling for shiloh jolie-pitt at the wax museum!!! and of course i saw her. shes cute. i woulda had to pay $30 just to get in the wax museum. but of course i was there for free. they moved shiloh for the event though. hmmm wonder whyyyyyy. and i think i know exactly who stands where because ive ran by all the wax people a million times...without knocking any of them over. johnny depp for pirates looked EXACTLY LIKE HIM.
so i know theres such a hugeeeeeeeee hype about the chocolate phone from LG. ive been obsessed over it too after hearing that verizon was gonna carry it. cuz i know its been real popular in korea. its not out yet but i got to play with it a lot yesterday because it was their main item they were promoting. teeheeheeee. ok. honestly, its not that great. of course its gorgeous on the outside, and the screen is big and good quality. but the buttons on the outside of the phone is all touch-sensative and it sounds cool, but its not. you have to be so careful of what you touch. it was difficult. eh, i dunno its still pretty. oh yea, its gonna be realllll expensive too. so, mollah. too bad i couldnt get one for free; they had like 30 yesterday.
i love work. i love my internship. i wish i was out of school already and working at an office like this.
im also veryyyy lucky to have an experience like this. i felt so professional. and to see all the spec cards i made attached to the products, very cool. haha
ok. i think thats it for my amazing day. my liver is dying. poor liver, im not even back in school yet! haha
wow. who read this all. good for you if you did.
im lucky for the most part. for the most part......
