Too early to think of Christmas Gifts? It’s another 6 more months ahead, but time do flies, it’s never too early to give it a thought, especially if you want it to be something special and unique. One of the best gift that I could think of now is personalized ornaments. I know some of these ornaments do not come cheap and there are many who buy is off season at discounted rates to be use for the coming year. But a personalized ornaments is indeed a worthy and meaningful gift.
This one goes out to the underpriviledge children of Myanmar, may god bless all of us. Charity event in Bangsar Village in Mar13′. A special thank you to the organizer of the event.
It’s been a while now since I last attended a teambuilding session. Only this time was instead of participating, I am part of the organizing team. Having said that, I felt wonderful to have organized such a teambuilding event for the staff. I was glad to see them participating in all the events enthusiastically and with full of energy. What more to see their smiley faces after the training on the next working day. Some of them even asked me for the picture and video links to their teambuilding activities.
Have you thought of going up to Penang Hill on foot? If you do and you’re a 1st timer, it’ll probably take you 2 1/2 hours going up and another 2 hours coming down on the tarred road. that’s what I’ve experienced. Although you don’t have to be physically fit to reach the peak but a little advise that you do a proper warm up prior to your hike up.
Best time to start your hike is around 6.30am. It’s a 5km tarred road hike and if you’re more adventurous and demand less stress for your legs, then you can opt for the Mountain Road. My suggestion is that you go in a group of 4-5 hikers. It’s a short distance from the Botanical Garden.
For beginners, there’s a rest area 84 and you can freshen up with a cup of tea. The ‘ah-chek’ or ‘uncle’ that operates the rest area doesn’t come until about 10am. He normally prepares tea and I also heard that he fries some noodles in the afternoon.
After the 4th km, you will reach beautiful Grace Dieu. Such a lovely place to live-just beware of stray dogs and monkeys. Yes. Stray monkeys too on the way.
Once you see a 5km signboard on the road, walla! You’ve reached your destination Penang Hill peak!
The authority has done well in providing better facility and being Malaysian, one just can’t get enough of our local delicacies that includes char kuey teow. Yup, you’re able to find a good plate of freshly individual fried kuey teow at the newly opened rest area.
Overall verdice: a well 1/2 day time spend on hiking Penang Hill and everyone should do it at least once in their lifetime being with nature while enjoying and experiencing the freshness of our hill air.
We have a seagate 1TB external HDD which we backup our photos and videos. Recently when wanted to do backup, the HDD external drive cannot be powered up anymore. Inquired two PC repair shops and all said they do not know how to fix it and one even said that it may cost a lot to retrieve the data from HDD. I am not sure if the HDD has got virus that cause it to be faulty. My mistake of not having any security software like Avira Professional Security or anitvirus installed in it.
I was walking in the mall yesterday and ended in one of the local RM5 shop. Was browsing through the supermarket and came across this band that supposed to relief your shoulder pain and so on. Thinking its RM5, why not give it a try. Unfortunately it comes in a single size (ie. L) and I was figuring how can I reduce the diameter. After wearing it for the first 1/2 hour on my right wrist (which was injured during my yoga classes sometime ago), I feel that there is a small % of healing effect (although after wearing it for a while). I was thinking to myself, hmmm…so this is why some of us are wearing this bands either around their wrist, neck and ankle. Was wondering if they have one as a belt around anyone’s waist? Well, call it gimmick or anyother names, it does have a small effect on me but I don’t know about you. Here are some pics (made in Korea):
