I flied to Penang early morning and attended the meeting until 5:30pm. Gary and I headed to Evergreen to check in, then walked over to Chilis G-Hotel for our dinner. While waiting for the food to be served, i jokingly mentioned that Jan 30th is my birthday. Mahen did not believe until i showed him my IC, he was trying to call his fellow colleague to sing me a song but i would like to make it low profile as i was so shy to have birthday near the bar... i was afraid to stand on the bar... hehehe... :-p
Guess what? He started to plan on knocking me out with the nice drinks he made for me.

Gary enjoyed his favorites Bottemless Nacho Chips... I felt warm and an enjoyable evening @ the pre-birthday nite in Penang.

I walked into the meeting room this morning with a surprise. My colleagues sang me the birthday song before the meeting... It was a WoW! and it was so warm too... :-> Thanks. I was tired after the whole day meeting but guess what? the meeting was so fruitful... this was a good birthday present for me. Rushed to the airport after the meeting, but unfortunately the taxi was stucked in the jam for nearly 1/2 hr due to a poor planning of the Penang city council road upgrading job...
Poor timing on road upgradeSunset @ Penang AirportAt the end, i managed to get one flight earlier and get back to KL about 9pm.
In summary, i managed to get lots of wishes from my friends and family members... What a nice 2008 birthday although i was away from KL.
