My this year birthday celebration was out of my expectation. It was organized together with farewell event. Haiz. Save cost. But, I got few celebration separately with other friends which made me feel so special.
B-day … oh … B-day
23 April 2010
I got one from dear LL and another one from dearest khakis. My khakis took me to sing-K at Green Box. Again, I was so hyper when comes to K-oke. Haha. Other than this, I received Papago GPS as my most expensive birthday present from LL and USB drive from DarkOne.
Well, you must be wondering something. Yes, it was a backdated post which I almost forgotten. A humble, low, minor, modest but sizeable ah-Lun was celebrating her very own birthday cum farewell dinner. It was a remarkable dinner where everyone tried to make it long lasting in memory, at least with her.
Lun Lun (Farewell + Birthday) Dinner
16 April 2010
Good or not, it was come so sudden. She moved out from KL and report at Lion city to work. A short notice given to insignificant gangs while her Asstero Gang was a way earlier informed. No doubt, things that come last minutes was always be messy. At least with us. LOL.
We had a dinner at PJ Seafood restaurant @ Tropicana. This place wasn’t that impressive after all.
Ever since I joined HL8 10 months ago, I was put in a situation where I could able to fully enjoy with Sport & Club activities. This club was revived back after few months and organized quite some events since then.
I.S.A Plus Club 2010
I.S.A Club is considering as an active club with self-funding through participation fees. I’m part of the committee member which carries a title called Auditor but it doesn’t justify my role there. The only significant role is between is President and non-president post. That’s it.
This club had brought me the whole new experience in organizing activities. We have come out a whole year plan to be carried out and we do meet up for every quarter to discuss about arrangement and rules.
Traveling is always my aim of the whole year, whether long or short distance, budget or affordable, easy or tough and small or big group, all came together with good satisfaction and fun.
Upcoming MATTA Fair 2010
3 – 5 September 2010
MATTA Fair second edition for the year is going near at 3-5 September 2010 soon offered a year-end sale package to all travelers. My aim this coming fair is to plan for year trip as well as obtain information for tentative trip.
Since economy is start showing some positive figure, it drives tourism industry to the grow as well. I expect many travel agencies start throwing cheap packages out to attract people to buy it even without full deposit. A minimal booking fees is required to secure the package price.
My upcoming traveling list has been revised half-yearly to keep track where am I going and progress in completing my list. Those who seek short holiday may find it useful and informative.
Travel Plan for year Q2/2010 and 2011 ahead.

Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2010
27 June 2010
My running time in the past was fairly below average @ 90 min for 10km distance with difficulties. Today, I managed to achieve 78 min (in recent Siemens 10K run) in a same distance with comfortable level. Thanks to my series of mountain hiking lately.
For me, my great interest is yet to be in this field.
My result for SCKLM 2010 is as below (82 min):
This year, I have a lot friends who joined for fun, aligned with over-marketed marathon event in various media channels. It draws a huge crowd and some of my passive friends also joined and caught me surprise.
