I am now on the way home.Seminar finished by 4pm.Managed to get 5pm bus.Had a good time listening to fellow project managers using innovative technology solving construction problems. Also met two fellow Malaysians that keep me company. This bus is using 3com Internet connection but it failed to function.I am disappointed. My diginet via my Treo is more reliable.Twittering is a cup of tea with Treo 680.
I am 247 km from Singapore and just crossed the Negeri 9 border to Melaka.Itried to use my EeePC to blog,but not easy when bus is shaking.I think the road surface is bad.From now on,I have stop blogging and please read my Tweeters.
On my travels,when I see a beautiful I will surely stop to take photos.The photo on the right is taken when I visited Singapore recently. I just love the architecture of masjid,especially the old ones...
In fact, I have created a photo group at Flickr just for the photos of masjid in Malaysia.Please click here.If you have taken any photos of masjid in Malaysia,kindly link them to this group.
It must be more than 10 years since I stay in a hotel in Singapore.Yesterday and today,I was frantically looking for a hotel to stay for a night because I have to attend a one day seminar next week.The prices have increased by at least 50%.
During my corporate days in the 80's,I used to stay at hotel along Orchard Road in Singapore but now their prices are too expensive for a small time project management consultant like me.Most of the hotels rate are above SGD 200 per night.
Today I managed to call a friend who is a frequent visitor to Singapore.From his tips, I managed to call a few hotels and managed to book a room at $70 per night.
On 29th April,2008 insyaAllah I will going to Singapore by Odyssey bus.The bus will leave KL at 1pm from its office next to Mont Kiara.It is scheduled to arrive at Orchid Hotel,Singapore at about 5pm.It is a business trip for me attend a seminar related to my profession at BCA,Braddell Road,Singapore.After the one day seminar on 30 th April,2008,I will be taking the bus at 7pm to return home to KL.
On both journeys,I plan to blog here and to twitter.If you wish to chat with me,I shall be online all the way(subjected to wifi availability provided by the bus company) at Yahoo Messenger.My nickname is berisman.
All are welcome to chat or read my musings while I am on the bus...
