It's Been A Year

Today marks the first anniversary of my trip to Europe, where I had the best time of my life, with the most amazing companion(s). 

Although I have traveled to a few other countries following that trip, this one to Europe is still so fresh in my mind. I enjoyed it to much from the every day life to the higher end stuff such as orhcestra concerts and cross border visits to neighboring countries. 

Will I be able to go there again some time soon? To me, it's not so much about the place, city or country, but about whom I was with and that's what made the difference between a mediocre trip and an awesome one!

Overloaded With Work!

Well, what's new? I have overloaded myself with work again and then I get so stressed out until every thing is completed. 

But when I have nothing to occupy my mind and time, I complain that I am too free, and go and look for more stuff to do! 

Haih, hard life! Can't I relax for just a while? Can, but only for half a day before I get bored out of my mind. 

Oh well, have to complete everything before I leave for Terengganu on Monday..... and then, HOLIDAY!!!

45th Wedding Anniversary

It's my parents' 45th wedding anniversary this coming Monday, and we are planning an intimate party. After doing a little research among friends, I would like to engage a three-piece band to provide some music and entertainment. 

However, one of my cousins said that he can entertain us instead, but with only guitar tracks. I prefer professional artists and think that my cousin only offered because he has been eyeing the guitar at guitar center

In any case, I will see what he can come up with. Will decide if he's worth hiring and paid in kind with guitar, after he has undergone my audition. Hahaha!

Too Many Trips

Argh... suddenly received a deluge of invitations to go on trips... after a dry season of one plus month. 

Unfortunately, because one of the trips require me to be away for one week, I have to stay put in Ipoh to complete my other work so that I start with a clean slate when I return. 

But I am not happy to have to give trips a miss. There's always something new to learn, new people to meet, and new experiences to gain. 

Oh well, hopefully, there'll be something better to look forward to, and then there's Ramadhan, when travel will be halted, unless I make personal trips.

Audio Visual Fair

I just agreed to accompany a friend to an Audio Visual Fair in the city. Although I have no deep interest in AV technology, I am in need of a microphone for my job and has been recommended the audio technica lavalier microphone

I also can't decide how much my budget will be but obviously, stingy as I am, I am looking for as best a deal as possible.

And so, off we shall be going to the capital city this Friday, and get three full days of shopping, more like window shopping for me, to get the maximum out of our trip.

And I Am Off To Terengganu Soon.....

Well, it's been awhile, eh? Was on a short excursion to Pangkor. It was hectic, not a relaxing trip at all. Now, I need another holiday to recover from that, if that's even possible! 

But before I can take a breather, I have a week-long trip to Terengganu. Yes, another trip to the East Coast state. It's a little weird that all my life, I have never set foot there, and then suddenly, in the past few years, I keep going back. This is possibly my fifth or sixth trip to Terengganu! 

And I am sure I will return to Ipoh 10 times darker! 

Oh well, for now, I MUST concentrate in wrapping up as much work as possible here before I head to Terengganu. TIRED!!!

How To Choose A Mandolin

I received a couple of gifts from the wife of my boss a few days ago. They were souvenirs purchased from the family's recent overseas vacation. 

While chatting with her, she asked me if I have knowledge and experience with mandolins, as she is buying a mandolin for her grandchild and don't know which one to purchase. 

Well, neither do I! But, being the web savvy person that I am, I scoured the internet and found a mandolin buying guide that she could refer to. That's the best I could assist. 

Hopefully, she doesn't come back to me with more questions. HAHAHA
