I can only get free Internet access at the hotel lobby:
And I have to get the userID and password, which is valis for 24 hours:
Nice lobby (pic taken using my handphone):
while I “toiled” away with my notebook:
Anyway, today we had the training session at Level 24, KOMTAR.
Some of the pix of the training is session:
I was not the main trainer. My colleague, Anita is. Here’s Ita with Wani (From Unit HRMIS SUK PP) during one of the hands-on session:
SUK PP has high reputation in adopting HRMIS .
After the training, I managed to snap a couple of pix of the view from the balcony outside the computer lab where the training was held.
Note the Gama shopping mall:
Another view to the right:
After the training session, we walked back to our hotel which is just next door. I think walking back would be faster than driving, because if we were to drive, we would have to go round the KOMTAR building to get to the hotel entrance.
And here’s the right-hand side view from our hotel room (note Gama again):
And the view directly in front of our room:
Initiallly we planned to have seafood dinner at Batu Uban, but we later changed our minds. Instead we decided to go to Padang Kota for sight-seeing, and to have dinner somewhere there.
So, just before 7pm, we arrived at Padang Kota, thanks to En Johari.
En Johari, Ita and Aini with the Naval Base and Fort Cornwallis in the background.
According to En Johari, we can get better pasembor at the New Padang Kota, near Gurney Plaza, so he took us there. It was difficult to get parking, so he parked the car near the roundabout:
I asked him, “Is it OK?”, he said it’s OK. Anyway we were not going to stay long. And don’t forget that this is our car:
Anyway, there were many other cars parked along the street, I comforted myself.
We sat at one of the tables, and ordered pasembor from this stall:
While waiting for our order to come, I decided to accompany Aini looking at other stalls. I managed to snap this one:
Then, suddenly someone called out my name, “Puan Sabariah?”. I looked at her, and noticed that she was one of my former “Diploma of Science with Education” (from UNISEL days) students! I had to apologise for forgetting her name, but Cecilia was prompt to tell me who she is. Cecilia who hails from Kuching, is here for a 2-week training at the Penang General Hospital. She told me that she’s very homesick already, but since she’s going back tomorrow, I am sure she can tolerate another day J .
A shot of Cecilia, with Puan Rokiah who’s from Melaka:
Now back to our meal, the pasembor was definitely better that those that I tasted at Padang Kota the last time I was there:
That was just one of the 2 plates. We also ordered char kuey teow and laksa penang .
Soon it was dark, and we decided to head back to our hotel:
En johari was very accommodating, he took us for a drive along the famous streets again – this time with the famous landmarks fully lit. Unfortunately, my instance camera’s not good enough to snap any pic while moving. I think I should come back here (these streets) when we come to Penang next month when we come for Nuni’s convocation, then DH can take some nice shots using his DSLR J .
That’s all for today… I need to do some report-writing (nothing to do with this training) that I promised another colleague back in the office that I’ll get mostly done by Monday!
