Just Another Day

Well, today is one of the co called most boring day ever. Yesterday, Mr. Ravindran called me to inform me about a Rakan Muda Usahawan Workshop which would be held today at the Kementerian Belia dan Sukan. It's about entrepreneurship and business management but I didn't know that until today. Well, lets see if I can equate it. Business+17 year olds = ZZZZZZ.

We arrived at around 8.30 after Mr. Rajan dropped us off. However, we forgot that Mr. Ravi had the entrance form so we had to wait a while before he arrived. No matter, we still managed to get a spot. I was elected team captain and we were able to witness and learn some new and interesting events.

First we had an icebreaker session. It's like a game called Boogey-Woogey (Michaelian prefects should know this). I managed to get a all the names to match the context except for a person who was born in May. How ironic. Later, all the group leaders were all combined into one team. And I got a big surprise. Lau Wai Wai, a former tuition buddy was also a group leader and representative of her school. What a coincidence. We had a great time catching up with times until my good buddies decided to ruin it by immediately declaring her my girlfriend. Is it wrong for a boy to speak to a girl?

It was a total shock but in a good way when we were informed that the best way to become a businessman is to play Monopoly. LOL! And I thought business was boring. Well, we started off with normal rules and I won with 10,710 dollars worth of property and cash reserves. I'm a born businessman...until I bankrupted in round 2 known as the 'Lightning Round'. Heh! Heh! Awkward.

And the rest of the day was filled with food and listening to a guy talking about how to become an entrepreneur until it ended at 4.30pm. Well, overall, it turned out to be quite a good day.

Let's get whitewashed...

Me and Wai Wai. Good times...Good times....

So, we're paid to play this?

Review–Pentahotel Hong Kong (Kowloon)

This is my first time doing this sort of a review so please bear with me and do give me your most honest feedback (should there be any). During my recent trip to Hong Kong, I was staying in a rather unique boutique hotel with a superb concept. An Overview
Pentahotel Hong Kong (Kowloon) is situated in an area known as Diamond Hill in Kowloon, the price for the night is significantly cheaper than the hotels on the main island of Hong Kong. Situated inconspicuously among factory and warehouses, privacy and peace are essential guarantees of this hotel.  The hotel boasts a towering 32-floors in height and a total of 695 guest rooms. Despite the building being 32 floors high, there are 6 elevators ensuring that no one has to wait more than a minute before getting an elevator. Accompanying facilities include a convenience store, recreation room, a cafe, a pizza bar and conference facilities. Further details will be listed at the end of the review.First Impressions

23rd Birthday @ Thirty8, Grand Hyatt

I may be about 2 months too late but I do want to share about a truly amazing birthday surprise. As my 23rd birthday came to view, I noticed my dear girlfriend was busy on the phone. I never really gave it much thought about what she was doing (perhaps ordering some girls stuff via the telephone?). However, I didn't know she was planning a surprise for my birthday. 

On the day itself, she dressed herself up really splendidly. I on the other hand managed to put on a shirt and a pair of jeans (the male effort of dressing up splendidly). She set the GPS for me and I just followed it all the way until we found ourselves at the entrance of the Grand Hyatt @ Kuala Lumpur. Mouth left ajar, I began to question what did she do (I'm a frugal person so places like the Grand Hyatt would rarely appear on my list). 
Entering the lift, we went up to the 38th floor and that was when I realised that there was such a restaurant called Thirty8. Unbeknownst to the general people like you and me, th…

Singapore Airline Training and Outing @ Parkroyal Penang

Hello again, dear readers. As you might have already known, I am currently a Senior Marketing Executive for Singapore Airlines Limited. It has been already 7 months since I've joined Singapore Airlines. Anyway, like all major corporations, there will always be either an annual dinner or outing. In the case of Singapore Airlines Limited, for the year 2015, we chose Penang as the spot to have our annual staff outing and dinner.

DAY 1: HEADING THERE

The day started early. By early, I mean waking up at 0530 hours to head to office (pickup point). Before heading there, we dropped by to fetch my colleague Douglas. What was interesting to know was that the roads at that hour were completely empty. It is eerie to know that the roads that I go through daily, fighting off traffic was now nothing more than a desolate scene out of the walking dead. Anyway, enough thoughts. When we got to the office, we had a light breakfast at the mamak downstairs. After "suffing" ourselves, we head…
