I met my manager in the hotel and gave her some gifts that I bought at the shop near Daorae, She is happy. Her room is next to mine. She just came here today. Have to meet her so tomorrow will be on track.
Tuesday – November 19, 2013
This is the first day of Fitness First Asia Marketing Forum. I woke up and having breakfast.. while I’m enjoying my breakfast, my manager text me and ask me where am I ? Huh ? And then I checked my watch. Oh NO! I’m late. I ran into the meeting room and everybody’s already there. Oh no.. This is the first day and I’m late.. I sneaked in and sit beside my Manager, She stared at me..oh ow..
First time meet new people here. All managers and their graphic designer from Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Phillippines. I’m kinda awkward with this situation. Mostly the meeting is about the general planning for Fitness First in the future. Some topic involved all the Graphic Designers to discuss.
The meeting have several coffee break. While in coffee break time, we – the graphic designers try to introduce ourselves. Denise – the senior graphic designer and Lex Yong – graphic designer from Malaysia, Jon from Phillippines, Ice from Thailand and Grace from Singapore. They’re all very nice and seem great. Denise is very active and care about us. Grace is very gentle and feel like ‘sister’ for me, Jon is very active in asking question (very critical and smart), Ice is a very pretty girl, but so silent. I just hope we can be a good team for Fitness First.
The meeting from 9 am – 6 pm. We will have 1 more meeting tomorrow to discuss about design. After the meeting, we will have dinner together at Italiannies at The Curve. From its name, we can guess this restaurant is serving Pasta, Pizza and stuffs. The foods are great, the atmosphere is nice. We have a very nice and delicious dinner together.
After dinner, it’s free time. We can go shopping or rest in the hotel. Tonight is special, because tonight is Sherline’s Birthday. She asked me out but she can’t pick me up because She has a class to teach. But she invited Abang Osman and Koko Mike. Abang Osman will pick me up. We want to give her a surprise. Abang asked me to find a nice cake for her. I found Chocolate Opera Cake. Looks delicious!
Abang came and picked me up. We went to a place they called ‘KAYU’. I wonder what special about it. Sherline has mentioned it before. It’s like somewhere with a very Malaysian feel – Authentic. Haha, when I came there.. It’s like an ordinary restaurant, but the atmosphere feel is very local. And the food and beverages are very Malaysian. We meet new friends there. We ordered some food and drinks while waiting for Sherline.
After Sherline and all her friends including Tan and Joan came. We ordered more food and drinks, chat and gossip. Her friends are very funny and expressive. When Sherline went to the toilet, we’re start preparing the cake. We put on the table, light the candles and when she came in, We sang loudly “HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU – HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU – HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU~“ She fell on her knees and shy.. Her face turned red and she laughed a lot. She is happy. The best thing in this place is ALL THE PEOPLE are singing together without asking them. It feels wonderful!
Make a wish ~
Let’s Celebrate! She make a wish, blow the candles and cut the cakes. A very great night with great friends, foods and games. We played “GUESS THE NAME” game that used a paper/phone and write down a word (can be person, animal or any object), put the word on the head of your friend, and the other friends have to ‘ACT’ to describe the word on his/her head without speak the word out. This is funny and ridiculous, the best word is “LEONARDO DA VINCI”, Sherline’s friends are very creative to ACT, they posed the signature pose of Leonardo Da Vinci – Human Circle pose! They’re very good, and we’re laughing out loud.
The best food is Roti Tissue, I surprised with what I saw a food/snack that very tall/long looks like Unicorn’s horn. (Wikipedia – Roti tissue, roti tisu, or tissue prata is one of the more-creative-looking Malaysian Mamak foods. It is also known as “roti helikopter” (helicopter bread). Roti tissue is a thinner version of the traditional roti canai, as thin as a piece of 40–50 cm round-shaped tissue. The finishing touches to the making of roti tissue require skill, and they depend on the creativity of the maker).
Roti tissue is available at most local Mamak stalls in Malaysia and Singapore and may be coated with sweet substances such as sugar and kaya (jam) or eaten with condiments such as ice cream.
After finish, we’re going back. Abang Osman take me back to hotel. Tomorrow will have morning workout and another meeting. Let’s rest
