Okay. Lots have happened since I last posted. Here’s what I remember from my spaced out world.
Strudels appreciation party
I got an invitation to the Strudels part to appreciate it’s current customers and business relations. And I guess you can call myself lucky for having a friend in Strudels who thought of me and my desire for yummy food – I devoured mostly salmon. LOL!
This was the same event Esty attended and I didn’t walk up to her to break the ice because it was only a lingering thought of familiarity when I saw her. Besides, I’ve not personally met her and I saved myself the embarrassment – just in case.
Visit Esty’s blog to indulge in the food shots she took. Looking at them just made me missed my salmon. 😛
On this day, I pretty much gave work a miss and spent the rest of it indulging and enjoying myself. Me and Ariel popped into Empire Subang because we’ve not explored the place. Ending up in Serai to have lunch, which left my thought of the food to be like; Madam Kwan’s. But the food there is seriously not bad.
Later in the night, I met up with more friends to dine at Tenji in Solaris. If you hadn’t known, I’m quite the Japanese (insert: food) lover. So if a Japanese place is suppose to have yummy food, you can bet that it’ll be on my must eat places. And that night, I seriously devoured a lot of salmon – practically cleared out 2 rows when it came out.
My passion for the web is to also support events I know would lead to a greater cause. Ever since WebcampKL started last year, I’ve met and listened to great speakers. I don’t qualify as one of it yet because mine was a light hearted subject on Voltron. I can’t help being an 80s kid. 🙂
We celebrated a friend’s birthday at Sen Tsuru, Kota Damansara. Again, it’s another Japanese restaurant, buffet ala carte style. Different from Tenji since this buffet is only based on their ala carte menu. Nonetheless, we still got to indulge in salmon – what did I tell you. In addition, we got to try new and yummy dishes which we’ve now recognized this place.
Our party moved to Sunway Giza with some ice cream cake and coffee later. Oh, with some present exchanging. As for the presents received, the birthday girl got a useful tool. I’ll leave it as that.
SMCKL on Social Media ROI
SMCKL or Social Media Club Kuala Lumpur is an event covering topics related to social media. The recent topic was on ROI with social media so I pulled Hawk along to attend this. But our worries became a reality the moment the speaker mentioned along the lines, “you’ll find it in our book”. Die.
The Lion King music at Marina Bay Sands
I’ve heard about The Lion King musical and I’ve watched Cats too, when they were in Malaysia. But having a strong feeling The Lion King won’t make it to our shores, me and Ariel made plans to head down to Singapore and catch it.
The show was well-worth paying SGB188 and the costume detailing was something not to be missed – cheetah scene still looks a little wrong to me. Since we got back, we’ve been telling all our friends it’s a show not to be missed – it’s on until May 31, 2011. Catch it if you can!
By the way, the theater isn’t located at the Marina Bay Sands hotel. I’m not sure what do they call the building with the retail outlets, theater and eateries. But it’s at the building opposite the Marina Bay Sands.
Besides the hotel’s weird spaceship top design, I was captivated and inspired by the exterior element of the building. Look out for shimmering wall which creates a water motion when the wind blows in the day and night.
Nerf Tour 2 at Bukit Jalil park
Besides passion for the web, I want Simpleet to be a supporter of passionate people. This was how we came to support the NERF Community in Malaysia. After attending the first event organized by them, I believed we could extend a hand to support a healthy activity which not only kids but young adults took part.
After some discussion and advice given to Brien, he took it on himself to make the event more successful. He’s managed to also get Hasbro Malaysia to be part of this. Job well done and we’re proud to be part of this event supporting passionate NERF players in Malaysia.
Taking ownership and initiation
I’ve also become the new president of my business network group; BNI Radiant, for dynamic and young-at-heart business owners.
The universe may have been working for me as I feel myself taking more ownership and initiation to what I do and can do.
Hence, I want to better commit myself to whatever I’m engaged in now; blogging, events, social media, work and whatever else I can do without hesitation. It’s not soon or later but now.
