DHL IT Services Annual Dinner & Dance 2007

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):

MATTA Fair II 2007

The 2nd Matta Fair was held at the PWTC last weekend. Thousands of people, not only Malaysians, but those from all parts of the world, thronged the fair to get the best bargain for their holiday.

I managed to get into the fair right after a visit to the European Union Education Fair in the KL Convention Centre. Entrance fee for the 2nd Matta Fair 2007 was RM3 (I think it’s the same as last time) & each visitor will get a bag upon registration with some goodies in it.

The fair took up 3 halls & every hall has great offers for its patrons. Prices for hotel rooms in local destinations are going as low as RM300.00 for 3 nights (4 pax)! The war of prices were totally evident & it’s amazing at how such fairs attract the load of people.

To think that the economy isn’t doing very well is questionable. Haha. Below RM10,000, one can go on a holiday abroad for almost 6-8 nights, inclusive of accomodation, tour, & air ticket! *faints* Too bad I don’t have such cash to travel around the world. If & when I do, it’ll be a great adventure to embark on!

MIFC: Team Italy Competing!

*Pheeew….boom!! Pheeew….boom!* This went on for 30 minutes during the competition days! Cool eh? It was actually pretty interesting, considering the fact that Malaysia rarely have such events on! 🙂 The sight & sound of fireworks dancing in the night sky was one to behold 🙂

The 1st MIFC was held in the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC). We, the Perutbesi duo managed to go there for 2 of the events *smiles proudly* Anne went for the display night on the 24th of August, while I went for the Team Italy’s competition night on the 25th 😀 However, we, like the thousands of others only watched the fireworks from outside the convention centre 😛

The event is carried out every Friday & Saturday, from 16th August to 2nd September. On display nights, there’ll be 10 minutes of fireworks shooting into the sky, while on competition nights, the event will last for 30 minutes 😛

Every night when the event is on, Putrajaya will be thronged by people from all over Malaysia, & other parts of the world, mesmerized by the awesome display of fireworks! 😀 For once, to be stuck in a traffic jam is something that’s not stressful, & one that brings a smile to each person’s face! Amazing, eh? Mind you, the jam to reach the bridge before the convention centre takes around 1 hour, & the jam after the event (to get out of Putrajaya) was another 1 ½ hours!! Toll itself, from Sunway, costs RM6.40 both ways, with an hour plus drive to arrive, with the jam!

I managed to capture some video of the event & snapped some photos too, but the photos didn’t turn out as well as the video itself 😦 Here’s to share with our dear readers, the event that took place on Team Italy’s competition night!
