Traveling: Hawaii

I am flying-off tomorrow for Hawaii, USA. I’ll be there for about 1 week, chairing a meeting and attending another meeting. The destination is Honolulu, Oahu and will be staying in a hotel at Waikiki Beach. Just to share the glimpse of the island that I am heading to:

Traveling: Singapore

I am currently in Singapore attending a meeting. Arrived at the hotel late afternoon today. The journey was so quick. I remember I just flipped through the newspaper only few pages then there was an announcement on the arrival procedure. The landing made me “mabuk“, I thought there was a crosswind hit our plane & I was sitting at the last row of A330-200. After check in and get some rest, we went out to Far East Plaza for dinner, just walking distance from the hotel. I had a Nasi Goreng Pattaya. Sedap! Maybe day after tomorrow we’ll go some other places to find the famous “Murtabak Singapore”.

Tonite I need to review some documents and reports for the meeting tomorrow. Some pictures to share:

Delegates, altogether 3 tables. Left: Singapore, Thailand, France, Malaysia, Egypt. Right: Bangladesh, Italy, Tunisia and Pakistan. Not all parties attended the dinner. Believe they went for shopping! hehehehe….

The food: In the center is Asam Pedas Kepala Ikan (Fish Head in chilli gravy), surrounded by deep fried babysquid, chicken satay with peanut sauce, Sambal Udang (Prawn in chilli paste), Sayur Lodeh (Vegetables cook with coconut milk), Deep fried Tofu with Eggs, Beef Rendang and Fried Marinated Chicken. Too much for everyone to finish. The dessert also yummy but sorry no picture as everyone was busy finishing it.

Work & Traveling: Chairmanship

Yesterday, I was officially appointed as a Chairman of an international project sub-committee together with a colleague from a neighbouring country. It’s time to be a jet setter again for the next few years. I see this as another progress in my career which is about to reach to my 7th year with the company. I am going to be extremely busy but of course will spend some time to write here. So where to start? hehehe …. Process, policies, budgeting, POW and the list will go on and on …….

Work: Finally it’s over (but ain’t over yet)

yeah, finally it’s over. The event was reported by major newspapers yesterday. I have yet to read them all. Need to get some rest as I didn’t sleep for the last 48 hours prior to the event. Feel good, refresh and relieve today. Slowly I gathered all newspaper cutting related to the news. Will read those while on holiday at my hometown.
