22nd August, Wednesday. Today we have our annual big event here: GPTR (Great Place to Run)! Again, I signed up for the 5K run like last year. However, due to having cold and not yet fully recover, I can’t really participate in the run. 🙁 So, instead of doing the run, I basically just go there for a walk and take some photos.

八月二十二日,星期三。今天是我们公司一年一度的大型活动:五公里和十公里的跑步比赛!和去年去年一样,我今年也参加了这项的活动,只可惜我这几天不小心病了,伤风还没完全康复,所以就没有去跟大队一起跑。今年我就只有乖乖的在那里走走和拍拍照。

My First Ever NBA…

11th of April, Wednesday. Tonight I finally got a chance to watch my first ever NBA match: Portland Blazers vs. Golden State Warriors! 🙂 I got the free tickets from my company’s GPTW events. Anyway, this is my first NBA live match @ Portland, Rose Garden Arena. Well, I am not really a NBA fans, but watching live match was completely different than watching on TV. You got to ‘feel’ the crowds, the shouts, and not to forget those funny ‘supporting’ clips that they put on the LED panel whenever the host team scored. It was a good match though, because everyone got free ‘Chalupas‘ from TacoBell as long as Blazers scored over 100 points. 🙂 GG!

25th of March, Sunday. Today I attended my first ever Orchestra @ Kaul Auditorium, Reed College. How I got the ticket? Well, I got it free from my colleagues because they were so lucky being selected for the GPTW event. Honestly, I always wanted to experience the real “Orchestra” feel since long time ago. I think it’s kind of hard to have this event back in Penang, now I got the chance, definitely I won’t miss this. 😉

三月二十五日,星期日。今天我出席了一項很難得的管弦樂盛會,真的讓我體驗勝多。我是如何拿到票?其實,那是從同事的手上拿到的,公司有免費分發這些管弦樂的票給一些員工,這麼剛好他們竟然被抽中,所以就有了這難得的一次體驗。老實說,我老早就很想親身體驗管弦樂隊的表演了,但是在檳城,的確比較少有這樣的演出,現在有這機會,我當然不會錯過啦。

Indoor Adrenaline Rush!

9th of March, Friday. Despite tons of works pending for completion, we tried to relax ourselves today, and had our first ever “personal teambuilding” (only our team, 9 peoples) event today. Well, thanks to my team-mate, who actually came from Israel, suddenly came up with this great idea of having a teambuilding in this indoor racing center: SyKart. It was so much fun!

三月九日,星期五。雖然一大堆的工作等著我們去完成,但是我們還是如期地在今天進行了我們特別的團隊活動(特別在於只有我們一組九個人)。其實也得多謝我的以色列同事,是他突然有這麼好的建議,讓我們去到這個室內賽車場進行我們的團隊活動,真的很刺激,很好玩!

八月三十一日,星期三。今天是馬來西亞的國慶日。為了要慶祝這特別的節日,我參與了這裡所舉辦的“淨跑”。:P 為何叫“淨跑”?看看這活動所制定的T恤就知道了,黃色!還是在國慶日這天!這就是為馬來西亞所舉辦的“淨跑”!
