Majlis Pelancaran Sistem Tukar Milik Sementara (STMS)

 Sometimes I'm being sent to places cover assignments where I do not know what's the agenda. Yesterday was no exception. It was only some time after I arrived at Toyota TopMark when I knew that the event was quite 'official' - it was the launch of the Interim Ownership Transfer System (or STMS).

According to the Malaysian Insider, this system 'prevents car owners from getting fines, summonses and installment notices from financial institutions after they have sold their cars to used car dealers'. You may read the full news here and here

 The guest of honor was the Minister of Transport, Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

 Group photos with VIPs are always great to have.

 Speech by CEO of eAuto.my, Ganesh Kumar Bangah.

 The conference room was packed to the brim with invited guests and the media.

The Federation of Motor and Credit Companies Association of Malaysia , Datuk Tony Chor.

 It was challenging to get a clear shot of the guests with all the camera men from the media even though I'm the main event photographer... sigh

 A 'demo' of the system with a beautiful customer.

 A photographer asked 'Datuk, can you please demo the system again?' Datuk Kong Cho Ha responded 'Absoulutely, but she would have to sell another car again !'  = = "

 The media conference is packed with journalists, cameramen and videographers as usual.

 One of the reporters posed a question about the details of the bus crash in Genting, but it was immediately dismissed.

 Two genuine customers trying out the system after all the hype. It obtains your Mykad details directly from government servers to reduce the possibility of fraud, I presume.

Its challenging being an event photographer, because in addition to the shots of the entire event, I especially can't miss the important ones. Like most photojournalists say, 'You either get the shot, or you're screwed big time'.
