The DHL Asia Pacific IT Services (Cyberjaya) had their Annual Dinner & Dance 2007 last Saturday at the KL Convention Centre. The theme for that gala night was “Glitz & Glamour” & all guest were requested to wear their best for the night🙂
The event was great🙂 The best part, I think, was the entertainment, which featured Harith Iskandar & Reshmonu!😀 Harith Iskandar’s slot was the best😉 We had a roaring time of laughter & he kept the crowd entertained for about half an hour! Reshmonu’s slot was filled with groovy music & the floor was opened for dance as well…hehehe…not many people went up for the dance, but it was a great time nonetheless🙂
The event also saw 4 lucky draw sessions, which kept the crowd hopefuly for something to be brought back with them😀 Here are some photos of the event (I’ve some more which ain’t transferred yet):
Ahaha…yes! this 42″ LCD TV is my new baby!! I won it in the Grand Lucky Prize draw at the end of the night😆 2nd prize!! It’s a true blessing & I really thank God for such a gift!😀 Anyone would wanna buy this baby?? *lol* This event is truly a memorable one for me🙂 It’s such a rare opportunity that I get to win something SO HUGE! Hahaha…
Kudos to the organizers of the event! All of us look forward to an even better & more exciting Annual Dinner & Dance 2008!!

It’s been just too long since the PerutBesi duo met up with the rest of our uni gang for food & fun🙂 Since 10th January was a public holiday, Awal Muharam, we made it a point to meet up for a time of food, shopping, & some catch up😀
We went all the way to Klang for Bah Kut Teh (pork ribs in herbal soup), but sadly, the one that was recommended by one of Yo’s colleague wasn’t opened today!!😦 Too bad man. At the end, we had our ‘dose’ of Bah Kut Teh at Pulau …. Seafood Bah Kut Teh Restaurant, in Bukit Tinggi, Klang. The Bah Kut Teh there wasn’t all that nice la. It’s ok, edible, but nothing that special *sigh* Quite disappointed.
After our meal, we spent the rest of the day shopping at AEON/Jusco Bukit Tinggi, the newest shopping mall in Klang, which we heard is the largest Jusco around! Hmm…there wasn’t anything very special about that place, but it was just nice catching up with the gang as well as get some good deals on clothes😉
We ended our shopping spree with a meal at the Black Canyon Coffee, a coffee house that also serves quite a variety of food🙂 We’re very sure that the gang had a good time today. We surely look forward to more of such outings together!😀

Ah, it has been really long since I actually went for a good retreat. This time around, a few church friends & I went up to Maxwell Hill (Bukit Larut) in Taiping🙂 We were there for only 2 days 1 night (29-30 December 2007) as I can’t take leave on the 31st of December…bah.The journey from KL to Taiping wasn’t too long. We were pretty much excited cos it was the first time that this group is out for a retreat together…heehee… I can’t recall why we we ended up with Maxwell Hill…hmm…but we sure enjoyed our short little break there😉
There were 8 of us in total, 3 guys & 5 girls (we went in 2 cars). Thanks to a friend in Taiping, David, we got everything arranged for us nicely & all we had to do was just to pay & have fun! Hahaha…😆 We stayed at The Nest, a bungalow situated right at the top of yet another ‘hill’. The hike up to that bungalow was pretty tough as we had our bags & all, but it was enjoyable indeed. Heh.
Well, to cut the story short, the few activities that we had up there were sharing, worship, prayer, makan, UNO card game, & definitely a time of catching up (since we basically meet up only once a year when everyone comes back from overseas). We also went around Taiping town on our 2nd day for makan, makan, & more makan in the 2hours that we had before we left for KL again.
I reckon pictures will speak for itself😉 (though I didn’t take that many with my camera this time around…) I would highly recommend this place if any of you would want a quiet & serene place to relax & shy away from the busy city life.
Somehow I feel that the cendol ain’t that nice although the place is pretty packed. I much prefer the one that I had in Kuantan…hahaha…I’m yet to find the most delicious cendol, but frankly speaking, I’m not a great fan of cendol, so it won’t be my priority to hunt for the nest cendol after all!😉
I reckon this will be the last post from us for the year 2007. The year has been an exciting one, with loads of events, adventures, & transitions (from uni life to work life) for both Anne & myself. We hope that our dear readers will stay tuned as we continue on our journey for more food, fun, friendship, & adventures!
PerutBesi would like to wish all its readers a very Happy New Year & a great year ahead!!
Christmas is here! The city is brightly lit & almost every departmental store is having their Christmas & end year sales! How exciting😀
I wonder how many who are going through the hustel & bustle of this season know the true meaning of Christmas. This season is so commercialized that it is losing its meaning *sigh* The celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ marks Christmas. Without His birth, there’s no need for us to celebrate Christmas (unless people just want to have some insignificant kinda celebration, without a purpose!).
The celebration comes along with Hope, Joy, a Promise fulfilled, & Love. With families & friends gathering for the celebration, loads of food to indulge in, a galore of gifts to open up, & a time where you would probably see most smiles🙂 , Christmas is truly a day to reflect on & enjoy.
We, the PerutBesi duo, would like to wish all our readers a wonderful Christmas & an exciting year ahead, filled with hope, promises fulfilled, & all things good!😆 Stay tuned!

What would make a PerutBesi-an happy? Mmm…certainly food! But what makes us even more delighted are chocolates! Even more, good chocolates!!😛
I had the pleasure to receive a box of dark chocolates from my friend, Nat, who just came back from Australia for a semester break. Wow… the chocolates that I received were wonderful! Certainly I can’t compare Lindt Chocolates with Godiva Chocolatiers, but this collection is certainly gooood… thank you SO much, Nat!!😀
Named, Lindt Swiss Chocolate (Dark Collection), I found out that this collection costs almost RM70! *faints* There are only 14 chocolates in the gold-coloured box, which looks extremely classy, & I found it very difficult to move the chocolates from its comfort zone…haha…
I believe very strongly that such chocolates are to be slowly enjoyed. Not everyone knows how to enjoy such yummilicious chocolates, especially when it’s dark chocolates. (I know for sure that my housemate can’t appreciate such stuff) Eating such chocolates sure reminds me that life is indeed ‘bitter sweet’ & I like it that way😉
