Tiring Sunday 9am-5pm CPIM class

I was pursuing the Certification on Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) since 4 weeks ago. Today was the last day of class on the Detailed Scheduling and Planning (DSP). I will be taking exam on September 22nd 2007... Wish me luck eh! :-)

Today's class was quite rush as there were about 1/2 chapter brought forward last week. But at the end, we still managed to finished on time. There were lots of good discussion. I'm looking forward to be certified by the APICS. This certification is a world recognised certification. So it will upgrade me on my factory knowledge and be specialized on Manufacturing Domain with supply chain knowledge.

After the class, i had dinner with Sbanboy @ Esquire Kitchen, Subang Parade. We ordered 2 vege dish and one dumpling. Since both Sbanboy and i have to study on coming exam. We decided to head back home to study after the dinner.

Guess what? I noticed when i went to the carpark and picked up my car. I saw some carpark that reserved for those parents with kids in the trolley. To my surprise, Subang Parade well taking care of their customers by arranging some reserved carpark for parent with baby. First in Malaysia ... never see this before... :-p

yeah it is nice to see some 'humane' touch here and there isnt it, TZ? mostly in Western countries, they are more 'thoughtful'..having parking lots reserved close to the building for the disabled, for families with babies and since then, asian countries have caught up pretty fast with the concept of baby nursing rooms in the malls esp for nursing moms and bigger space for diaper changing, feeding and stuffs like that (more family or mommy friendly) I guess these things u guys wont really know since u all dont need to do that :P

good luck for ur exam in sept huh! :)
