Two nice and high end mall have officially opened on September 20th and 26th 2007. These two mall are Pavilion (built on the Bukit Bintang Girl School) downtown KL and the Garden which is an expansion of Mid Valley City. The two malls have attracted new tenants and new retail stores such as Club Monaco, Robinson, the coast London etc... I still remembered i have a shirt that i bought in Club Monaco way back in Canada. Finally, i see Club Monaco in KL... :->
BTW, I visited The Garden this afternoon and had my lunch @ Starbucks The Garden Mid Valley. Initially i would like to get connect and update my blog about The Garden but unfortunately the Starbucks @ The Garden has no broadband connection yet. Anyway, it was a nice experience dining @ Starbucks The garden.
After lunch, i walked around the mall and finally i decided to stopped by Isetan The Garden. This Isetan is different from KLCC and Lot 10. This Isetan has a very tasteful designed and it looks more classy than KLCC and Lot 10. The staffs over this Isetan are very well trained and I got a good treatment as a customer :-> Guess what? I bought one handy beg from Timberland @ Isetan the garden.

I promised to share on the result of the analysis after yesterday...
Before you look at the answer, just give it a try
BTW, the answer is in the comment session :-)
Last Tuesday, I paid a visit to MultiMedia University (MMU) near Cyberjaya attending the Technology talk. This tech talk is regarding the Multi-core Parallelism, the next generation of how the software coding could be optimized and run faster than current. To all the IT technical project manager + developers / architect, take note for your coming software product. Will blog about this later.
Today, I went to Lim Kok Weng university (LkWU) for lunch with my colleague. This was my first time visit to this University although i passes by every morning on my way to work. The University from far looks very creative... but wait till you see how fashionable the student... you definitely will not be too surprise. The student over in LKWU are so creative and fashionable. Of course this is an art based university if you would like to argue with me... anyway, it is worth to pay a visit.
I checked on the Phuket weather update... from the forecast it is still not very optimistic... but i will continue to pray hard ... :->
|Thunderstorm. High: 86° F. / 30° C. Wind WSW 17 mph. / 28 km/h. Chance of precipitation 90%.|
|Thunderstorm. Low: 77° F. / 25° C. Wind WSW 17 mph. / 28 km/h. Chance of precipitation 100%.|
Hopefully the weather will turn as nice as outside right now in Malaysia (Sunny and clear blue sky) :-p

I checked out couples of Phuket weather outlook for the next 15 days... The report is not very optimistic ... My buddy and I might be ended up in the hotel sleeping due to bad weather... anyway, all the arrangement has completed... The only things i could do is to pray for good weather next week... :-)
Last night was the mid autumn festival... with the gloomy and hazy night in downtown KL... I hardly could see the moon... :-(
Anyway, we did not celebrate much on mid autumn festival... just have couple of different type of mooncake.
What is Mid Autumn Festival?

I just completed all the booking for my Phuket / Phi Phi island trip. I'm all set to leave KL for Phuket, so do my buddy... but before i could enjoy my nice sandy beach holiday... i need to go through my expected busy 7 working days... :-)
< -- I just started my countdown clock (refer to the side bar ) ;-p
I went to KLCC last Friday for my pilate. When i walked up from the carpark, I realized that there is a billboard with my nickname TZ. Hurray, I'm a celebrity lah! even my nickname appears in the billboard @ KLCC :-p Jealous?
Instead of seeing my picture, i saw this @ the billboard...
My friend Poohbearee has compose an entry regarding Funny (an amused observation in her work place). I copy this set of comment/observation from her and add on my comment / observation. Here you go my observation base on PoohBearee's statement... enjoy eh!
Poohbearee: We check our mailbox constantly for emails when out of the office.
TZ: try not to unless needed. I bet a lot of people don't check email when they are in the office ;-p
Poohbearee: We MSN one another to discuss about work when out of the office.
TZ: try not on the MSN :-p (hint: use status = away or offline when you see your boss signing in), i sometime do it... don't ask me why
Poohbearee: We SMS one another about work when out of the office.
TZ: I hardly received or sent SMS to my collague. Once a while, I did receive my boss's SMS.
Poohbearee: We blog about work.
TZ: Always do it when necessary to throw everything out from my mind (like clearing the rubbish / stress out of the trush bin...
Poohbearee: We think that working overtime is fun. (I nearly fainted when I hear this one!)
TZ: enjoy unless overtime is paid... too bad no overtime paid for me ... :-(
Poohbearee: We have one common idol.
TZ: Who? I don't notice that. But i notice my boss have 1 idol lah! which is not me *wink*
Poohbearee: We run and not walk in the office.
TZ: Run is a violation in my office so we have to walk
Poohbearee: We suggest that we hold hands and pray when we are desperate.
TZ: did not seems like happening in my office, i bet it worked for your office
Poohbearee: We speak in an insane manner and laugh loudly whenever we are stressed.
TZ: i think when we are stressed, every form of weird and unexpected positive circumstances will appear :-p
Poohbearee: I hope there is nothing wrong with us.
TZ: I don't think it is something wrong with us... we are human... we do thing differently... we analyse thing differently too and interpret thing differently as well... etc...
Just like what i written my comment corresponding to Poohbearee observation :-p

Finally, my examination is over... after a two days studied hard... i managed to have at least 80% confident to pass the exam. This is not necessary the case as it will also depends on all the participant whom takes the exam... they will have a bell curve to decide. Anyway, the result will be out in few week time... Let's see! BTW, Thanks to all my friends for wishing me luck for my exam... especially thanks to Sbanboy for texting me yesterday to encourage me and wishes me luck :-p Thanks Sbanboy...
Guess what i did after my exam... Shopping! I went shopping with Darrenzeger. We went to the newly opened Pavilion - a nice and modern mall in KL. This is the latest mall in KL... The mall is awesome. When we reached there, the Espirit was having a fashion show in the concourse area. We stopped there and look @ the fashion show. Lot's of photography fanatics were taking picture of the model as the models were doing the cat walk.
Walked around for about 1-2 hrs... finally we decided to hang around Planet hollywood for snack and beers / cocktails. We headed Isetan after our quick stop @ Planet Hollywood... Started our shopping spree. I bought lots of Nike stuff and one G2000 BLU polo shirt. Darrenzeger bought couple of clothing etc... We left Lot 10 @ about 7 something.
I sent Darrenzeger back after dinner...
A tired day with lots of new clothing for next week. :-)

Hurray, I'm going to resume my Thailand vacation planning :-)
Guess what? I will be going to Phuket & Phi Phi Island early October for about 7 days. Date is not confirmed yet as i still need to obtain my boss approval for my 5 days leave. My friend is okay to go with me on the period after we had discussed last night via phone...
One step nearer to Phuket. BTW, I just checked and the Air Asia ticket is only RM29.99 x2 (Return) not included tax. This is much more cheaper than during Hari Raya. I'm so excited to leave KL for a 7 days vacation @ Phuket / Phi Phi Island.
Will continue later... need to get back to work :-p

I just uploaded a couple of video to my YouTube a/c. Thanks to Corine and Matt for helping to take this video shots :->
Wah! Wah! and Wah!... Spoil all the background music. You could imagine how amazing is the fireworks eh! :-p

I had the trial exam this morning ... how's the result? errr.... not very good. I expected this result as i only place 30% of the effort to study for the past two weeks. Not even 50%, so what do you think TZ? how could you score then... I had made up my mind that I have to start my study 2 hrs a day from tonight onwards. Besides, I have talked to my boss that i would take 2 days off from work to focus on my study... Wish me luck eh while i committed to put 110% effort ;-p
I was glad that i had identified the gaps via taking the trial exam. So now i know which is my focus for the remaining 7 days. The lecturer was quite worry about me passing the exam with my current status... I have ensured Dr Ng (the lecturer) that i will put lots of effort to get thru this exam on Sept 22nd 2007... so don't worry Dr Ng :-)
Before i start my study tonite... Let me go and get a nice nap lah! ;->

The fireworks started on time @ 10pm... it lasted for 20 mins. It was a superb location (thanks Matt for recommending). Guess what? (just between you and me ah!) We got free of charge yet the others have to pay for RM$44+ for this view. The only different is we were @ the extremely economic class i.e. the PICC parking bay but we did not even bother just only for 1.5hrs waiting + 20mins show.
Like a huge parking (on the way to the Toll exit to NKVE)
This is how the traffic look from Cyberjaya to the toll exit on NKVE. Corine has jammed in the traffic about 2hrs ... same as me roughly about 2.5hrs... moreover, i missed my the other nite out with my friends @ laundry bar :-(

Oops! My chair was so shaky all of the sudden. Chinese belief that it was a bad sign for a shaky chair in the office. I think i about reaching the junction to make a change... :-p I felt shaky when i was having a discussion with my collague early this morning. After listening to the radio during lunch, i realized that there was a aftershock hit with 7.7 ritchel measured @ 7:55am (Malaysia Time) in Indonesia, exactly the time when i was having a meeting.
I still can't imagine how's the real earthquake felt... KL is so far from the epicenter and we have felt the shake... what if we were near to the epicenter... How many buildings will collapse and how many people will trap in the debris? Never wanna to imagine this... Anyway, i would pray for the people of Indonesia, hopefully they would be able to get help soon and all of them would be okay.
I'm glad Malaysia is not within the earthquake zone. Otherwise, we will be going to suffer and live in high risk zone.

Everyone will come into a point which you are standing in the center of the junction. The road that i walking rite now... i feel that i'm going to hit the junction which i might need to make a call.
My career life is enjoyable but not up to my expectation... I think all of you must be thinking i'm too demanding of myself... I got a chance to travel and moreover a good job with enjoyable benefits. But the job i have in long run... still not able to realize the long term benefit...
Anyway, I have been bother by something that i could not share over here now but will be able to share with all of you later. There will be a junction ahead of me and i'm preparing to make the call on which road should i proceed.
Hey, on the lighter side, my dad and friends are organizing a vacation to JiuZhaiGou, China. One challenge for me is i don't know whether i could manage to leave my work for the vacation... :-(
Let's see what i could do...

Anyway... good to hear from the University... Way to go U of W... :-)

I was working 12 hours shift last Friday, just to coupling with the Shift Manager to understand his job nature and observed on how he solved the problem / challenges together on studying what type of report he is using for the decision.
I went in to the office @ 6:30am and got the pass to go into the production floor. Met the Shift manager @ 7am and the works started. I was walking together with the Shift Manager in the factory production line and lots of meeting. Learnt a lot on the manufacturing floor. A tired day but filled with new knowledge :->
I need to compile all the notes and share the result with my boss later next week.

I was extremely busy yesterday... no time to update my blog :-( ... All the backlog keeps piling up... everyone must have been thinking where is Putrajaya nite out Part II... coming soon eh! don't go away. Stay tune!
My Tuesday was a busy day as i have meeting back to back, in addition i need to rush from one building to another. The company that i worked for decided to cut down the shuttles frequency that link among buildings. This has placed an additional challenge to be in the meeting on time... I was so glad but tired when the clock hit 6pm, decided to hit the gym to rejuvenate.
I went to Fitness First Island Plaza. There were less people in the gym compared to couple months ago. I think most of them are still in vacation... I'm so envy them, vacation! me working lah :-) Anyway, I dropped by Alan's RPM class and nearly wanted to come out from the room after half way. I was so tired and my energy level was low too. In the end, i managed to complete all the tracks... Way to go TZ for staying back until the class ended.
Managed to say hi to Andrew, the PT manager @ FF-IP. He was practising his new Bodystep release. He invited me to go to the BodyCombat class together with him after my RPM. Due to my low energy, i decided to cool myself down and called it a day. Since it was still early, I decided to give the sauna and stream room a try. I never been to the Sauna and Stream room @ Fitness First. The Sauna is roughly like the Evergreen hotel but this is much more better... wow! the stream room was so hot and full of stream too. It was the hottest stream room i ever been... :-) Guess what? everyone came out when it reached an extremely hot and no one could stand.
I hang around the stream room for about half and hour, i took a shower and left the gym for my dinner. Dropped by Starbucks, took my dinner and headed back to the hotel. :-p

My collague and I left Cyberjaya @ about 4pm and we managed to reached Penang @ about 7 something... Took us 3.5hrs journey. We stopped over @ the Autocity @ Juru for dinner @ Seoul Garden Buffet... Yummy! There were different kind of meat (Beef, Chicken, Mutton, Fish, Prawn, Clam etc... lots of variety to choice from... I was too busy to enjoy the Korean BBQ and didn't take any picture of the food... Do imagine that you are BBQ on the iron plate @ Korean Restaurant...
Autocity @ Juru seems to be the most happening place in mainland Penang... I took a couple of picture before leaving the place. Next time i would like to check out the Tao restaurant. The design of the restaurant is contemporary.
Left Autocity @ Juru straight after some shots. Cross the Penang bridge with less traffic and headed to Northam hotel via Burma road. Guess what? I just finished my nice Jacuzzi bath but i couldn't switch off the Jacuzzi... :-( The hotel front desk just sent a maintenance guy up and helped to switch off the Jacuzzi off from the main switch, otherwise i would be suffering from the jacuzzi noise... :-p

Hurray! I did not boot up my laptop/computer for 24 hours... Amazing eh! :-p
Sorry my friends, i did not update my blog for the whole weekend... Felt a little lazy to update the blog. Will start to catch up with my backlog during my business trip next week.
Guess what? I'm going to Penang for business trip again tomorrow evening. I'll be driving on this trip, so i have the car to go around Penang... :-> Penang here i come again.
Gotta pack my beg now. Update later eh!
