Explore the Wilderness @ Teluk Batik Resort

This was the third company team building I've attended. On 27th June, 7.30 am, we all gathered and depart from Wisma Zelan, KL. As expected, I had a nap in the bus because I slept at 3 something the night before. Once reached Bidor, we had the Duck Noodle. I personally think that it is not as good as before... I've tried that a few times before. Maybe today the chef had missed something or what. But the white coffee there is as nice as always.

White Coffee

Herbal Duck

After eating, went back to the bus, and slept again. We reached Teluk Batik resort around 11 something. And we had our lunch there. Because I was still full, I just had some fruits and drinks. After lunch, we can't get our room yet. So all of us put our belongings in one room. Changed to outdoor attire and move to the jungle. Journey began...

The route to the destination is a bit hard because it was quite steep. But we managed to get to the destination safely. Once we reached, Mr Goh, the tour guide cum motivator explained to us about the safety equipments, and steps to go through all the obstacles. It was tired but also a great chance for me to workout since seldom exercise recently. Hehe...

Challenge in Jungle

After everyone done the challenge, we moved back to resort and checked in. The resort is "OK OK" only. TV is not clear, no hair shampoo, no shower cap, no coffee, nothing in fridge, no snacks and no telephone. Others... just fine.

After shower and so... we went to have our dinner. The food there is not very nice... just ok to put in mouth. Then we start our indoor session. We started off with the topic Trust is the foundation of Teamwork. We were asked to carry everyone in the team up, assuming that we had an emergency and the person need to be rushed to hospital immediately. Then we played the spider web game, where everyone need to move to the other side of spider web without touched the web. Here, strategy and team works applies. After the session, we went back to our rooms and rest.

The next day, we woke up early and had our breakfast. Then we went to the beach to have our Canoeing session. And this is not a normal Canoeing session like those at lake or river. What we face this time is the sea... with strong Waves. Mr Goh taught a lot about how to control the canoe, and what to do if there's an emergency. Didn't take any photo because took part in the activities.

At evening, we had our pool session. It began with using balloon filled up with water to play... we have to throw the balloon into the goal. It was hard because in water, the balloon doesn't float. And we cannot break it. After a few rounds or so... we use the real ball. The session overall quite nice as everyone exercised.


At night, we had some company members sharing session. Everyone share their thoughts, about happiest and worst time in company. After that... Hehe... Best part... Boss announced about Annual Trip... ^^
The night end with yum cha session at the stall inside the resort near apartment.

The next day... we had another indoor session before we check out and leave.

We had our lunch at AMU Coconut Villa located in Kg. Cina. The food overall is OK.

Overall... The trip is nice (",)

Charity Day...

13 June 2009... It was the 1st time I joined my company to do some charity. In the morning around 10am, we gathered at Wisma Zelan. Then we proceed to our 1st destination, the Jubilee Home at Jalan Loke Yew. We were greeted by the person in charge there. A lady at her 60s. She doesn't look that old actually, if asked me to guess, I would guess 50. We put all the stuffs that they needed on the table. Some of them were vacuum flasks, toilet rolls, detergent, some food supplies and a few cans of "Mui Choy Taucu Fish". Yeah... I never heard about that until that day. It was like normal taucu fish, just added "Mui Choy". The person in charge there explained that the old folks there likes the "Mui Choy Taucu Fish" very much. Normally they will mixes together a few cans + some "Mui Choy" and some cabbage so that it won't taste too salty for the old folks. There are around 28 old folks living there. It is a half private half government Jubilee Home. Government sponsored about RM8/day/old folk there. But it usually takes up to 14months to get the money. But as told by the person in charge, "It's better than nothing". After talked a while and donated money to the house, we leave to next destination, the orphanage.

It rains heavily when we reach the orphanage. It makes us a bit difficult to move the donation stuffs. But we were welcomed by the orphans happily. They keep saying thank you, welcome, thank you, welcome. And that makes us feel that we were really doing some good thing. We felt appreciated. Then we were greeted by the orphans, shake hand and say hello, introduced themselves. But it was sad when see a lot of them were imperfect. There are only a small number of them were normal. I can see the normal there does give their support to the imperfects. And they were happy to see us there. At least they know that the society still cares about them. I try my best to go around, shake hands, say hie. And all of them respond positively.
Photo above is the area where most of the orphanage rest and play around.
Photo above is the living room, where smaller ones were taken care. It was really not an easy job to take care the young ones. Where we were there, suddenly one of them cries loudly. We don't know why he suddenly cry so loud. He seems like scared of something. The one of the adult there pressed his forehead for a while. Then he back to normal. Maybe they have some professional training on that, or it developed from their experience? I'm not too sure.
Photo above are some of my colleagues accompanying a girl. The girl pulls some of my colleagues to sit with her when they pass by her. I guess she needs some people to accompany her. I believe most of them here needs the society to give them extra attentions.
See how poor is the girl above... She walks near me a few times and I shake her hand... say hello... talk to her a bit even though she doesn't speaks.
And the young guy above, when I was taking photo around, he keeps dancing around, trying to get my attention. And I took a few shots, and I show to him the photos. He gave me a feel like the Jamal in Slumdog Millionaire. Who knows, in future, he might be a millionaire? Hope that he will be blessed.

And to the society, hope that at least from this post, the readers will know their existence. There are a lot of orphanage all around. Not only big cities, there are also orphanage in small towns. Try to give some attentions to them, let them feel that they are still valued in the society. Give them any support that you can. You don't have to be a millionaire to donate RM1 to them. Every ringgit for them is a hope to survive. And even though you don't donate any money, some cares will let them feel warm.

Will Malaysia become a Garbage Country?

Hey all Malaysian... Do you ever noticed that the amount of garbage around you are increasing? You can see garbage everywhere... On the street, on stairs, on everywhere... including what I see below:
It was SUPER SURPRISING with what I saw... It's already 21st Century... and what happened here was like... people are living in Mesopotamia Age. Throw rubbish where ever they like. The lift is for transporting people from floor to floor... Schools never teach us that it's for transporting garbage!

If this kind of habits continues in Malaysia... I believe sooner or later... it will become
*Image from http://seacat.files.wordpress.com

Of course non of us want to live in a place like that right?
Come on... Wake up Malaysian!... there are rubbish bins just a few steps from you... why you want to throw on the floor and contribute to the forming of a Garbage Country?

Asiasoft Game Fest 2009 @ 1Utama

Are you an Asiasoft fan? Do you play Maple? Cabal? Audition? or Sudden Attack? I'm sure that you will not miss this event if you are a fan. I just heard about this event from forums on Friday. And decided to go on Sunday (7th June) because in the schedule there is Maple Story 2 Launch on Sunday 3pm. When I woke up, my girlfriend told me that she read newspaper and it says that Raymond Lam and Linda Chung will be at 1U too.

So prepare and had our McLunch before we go. Since the event for Raymond Lam and Linda Chung is at 2pm and Maple 2 Launch at 3pm, so we thought that we should have enough time for both events.

Reached 1Utama at around 2pm. And we were surprised that there were a lot of people, even near the entrance at Level 3. It was so crowded and people all looking down at the stage. And yeah... It was because of Raymond Lam and Linda Chung. I never see an event at 1U that can attract so many people. And I tried to go down 1 floor by 1 floor looking for place where I can at least look down and see what happen, but failed. People stands on chairs, dustbins, where ever that can make them higher and able to see what's happening. But I decided to go down to G Floor. At least with the same height, I can raise my camera and able to look at the LCD. But even the G Floor is super crowded. So no choice, move on to the Asiasoft event.

The event was great. It started with a remote controlled baloon airship carrying an Orange Mushroom to the stage.

After that, it continues with free gifts and Hip Hop Dance. Ermm... Actually I was wondering what Hip Hop relation with Maple Story 2 Launch... And in the end I think it's totally not related =.=
After Hip Hop and gifts, it continues with the Cosplay. I believe many people like this part. Hehe...
Here are some photos from the event.
Below is the character from Sudden Attack. Ermm actually I know this game since... Last Saturday... where I see people playing in Cyber Cafe. Haha... Actually seldom play games nowadays... A lot of new games and characters also not sure... Hehe...

This one I know... coz I did play the Game... Cabal...

The pretty girl below from Sudden Attack... but the tall guy not sure... Maybe Pirate in Maple Story?

Another Sudden Attack girl and unsure tall guy... Hehe

Two girls from Yulgang

A cute girl from Audition

Below is my favourite Maple Character... The Ice Mage... Too bad no Cosplay for him...

It had been quite some time didn't play Maple. I guess after this Game Fest, the demand for this games will increase. People will start play the games introduced there. And old players who stop playing might start play it back. (",)
