Singing with Thermaltake

One party that we always look forward to during Computex is the Thermaltake party. The big reason for that is because Thermaltake has the coolest CEO in the world.

Kenny Lin, AKA the singing CEO, founded Thermaltake in 1999 in his garage and grew the company into a world wide brand. The company had a successful IPO last year, allowing Kenny to expand the company even more.

Kenny is like a breath of fresh air. Asia can be a very class divided society. Bosses are very stuck up and feel they need to separate themselves from their employees. Not Kenny. He likes to party with all his staff and no matter what level they are at the company, they call him Kenny and not Mr. Lin. To top it all off, heโ€™s a pretty good singer.

For most western readers, the Thermaltake party may look pretty strange but it is the most fun of Computex. They had a huge spread of food, beer, Johnny Walker, music, prizes and lots of singing.

        LMFAO that would hurt.

    2. Abdul says:

      I like the outfit of the girl who pops in at 2:45 (the one in the blue). By the way that kenny sings good.

    3. Looks like you had an awesome time there, John!

    4. Chris says:

      This is quite possibly the greatest blog post I have ever read, watched, and listened to.

  2. Jamie Harrop says:

    John, the only sane reason for singing that bad is if you were drunk. Please, please tell me you were drunk. ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. John Chow says:

      The Johnny Walker was flowing like water from an open tap!

      1. Thiago Prado says:

        I like to sing however I’m very shy. By the way was the party open bar?

        1. John Chow says:

          Of course the party was an open bar! What kind of question is that?

          1. Thiago Prado says:

            I’ve never been in big parties like that overseas. That’s why I don’t know how this parties are organized. To get something to drink in a party I usually have to pay for it.

    You gotta love that. The grounded CEO is a unique breed. If only I worked for one. ๐Ÿ˜

  4. Game Tester says:

    Sing Chow Sing!

  5. bocah says:

    Congrutulations John :mrgreen: I like girl in your photo ๐Ÿ˜†

  6. When you first showed the food spread it looked like you got there late cause it was almost gone, or maybe that was you that ate it all.

  7. Nice pic John, that girl
    looks like real samurai ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Good heavens, Abba’s Dancin’ Queen! What’s the world coming to?

  9. Juan says:

    Hey John, It looks like you and your crew made good use of the free alcohol portion of the night ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  10. Abdul says:

    John, it seems like photos of girls in your articles have made them more famous. Are you getting what I’m saying?

  11. John… you definitely know how to have a good time. The last time I sang karaoke (which was many years ago) I was EXTREMELY DRUNK and thought I sang great. I even bought the audio tape they were selling. Two days later when I woke up and listened to the tape, I was wrong! To be honest… you even sang better than me ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Shawn Knight says:

    Nice! Yeah, just a bit different than a CES party… was Ramsom there? That guy is a TRIP!

    1. John Chow says:

      Yep. Ramson was there. We got him good and drunk! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  13. So you are Eco-Friendly now John? I guess that means your blog uses less fuel than other blogs?

    1. John Chow says:

      This blog is so eco-friendly, it uses no fuel! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

      1. I don’t know John. that Lambo in the masthead would make me think this blog probably uses a bit of fuel and isn’t so green, ha!

    For some reason, every time I watch a ‘home’ video now, I can’t get that film Cloverfield outta my head… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  15. Chessmaster says:

    She is super hot! ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. Alex Vorn says:

    Great, Very hot! ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Oliver Roldan says:

    Yo john,

    When are you going to come back from your trip?

    1. John Chow says:

      I should be home by June 8.

      1. Terry Tay says:

        June 8? Man, time sure does fly. It seems like you just got there and were hunting Pandas and now you’ll be back at home by the 8th. It was a blast seeing China though you though john.

  18. Gary Gregory says:

    Kenny does sing well. He seems like a great guy, not to mention super successful. The party looks like fun was had by all.

  19. John, you are lucky to have fun man. I am following you, and well I have decided to meet you in canada, thats my mission ๐Ÿ™‚ and I will succeed, I will show you the same post on my laptop in canada, see ya :)…

  20. Randy says:

    Girls were nice. Singing… not so nice. Must have been the booze.

  21. I like that Abba song by the way. :mrgreen:

  22. VeRonda says:

    Hilarious!! Singing is, indeed, an art. Everyone should try it! ๐Ÿ˜€

  23. Terry Tay says:

    Alcohol always helps create instant singing stars :mrgreen:

    Did you over do it with the alcohol and wake up with a hangover John?
    ~Terry

    1. John Chow says:

      No hangover for me. Jason had a big one however.

      1. Terry Tay says:

        Well, as long as everyone had fun, I’m sure Jason doesn’t mind the hangover too much ๐Ÿ˜†
        ~Terry

  24. Thiago Prado says:

    The party looked very animated. did you have fun with your friends?

  25. How long is Computex? 3-4 days or a week?

    1. John Chow says:

      Computex is one full week of partying, I mean working. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

      1. The benefits of working hard and living well.

  26. ArticleShark says:

    I thought Kenny’s that girl in the photo! Indeed, what fun it is to have a boss that knows how to mingle.

  27. nice party… john like a professional singer

  28. Sean says:

    Do I sense karaoke at next year’s CES party?

    1. John Chow says:

      I doubt it. America is just not fun like that.

  29. Heh that Kenny sounds like a real great guy to work for.

    A bit like the Richard Branson of China! Richard Branson is well known over here in the UK for partying with his staff, wearing casual clothes at business functions and meetings, insisting you call him Richard, and singing the odd song at work parties too.

    Why can’t my boss be more like Kenny and Richard.

  30. WOW thats funny , he founded the company in his garage… ๐Ÿ˜†

  31. Noobpreneur says:

    John,

    Sigh – seems like a good boss to me – unfortunately most bosses are button down ones ;P

  32. Geiger says:

    Thank GOD this blog isn’t about Making Music Online!!!

  33. Sha says:

    Kenny sounds like the ideal boss. There are way too many moronic bosses in this world.

  34. Wow some really pretty girls keep it up john ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
