Monday ... 6th day of New Year

10:30am: Man... started out fairly quiet from a busy weekend! Did the usual non-work day stuff, like check emails and stuff.

3:00pm: Went to the Internal Revenue Department (Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri) at Wisma PGRM to get the form to register myself as a tax-payer. The employees there very nice.. unexpected. But I'm glad that is so!

4:00pm: Went to Bukit Bintang area to check out the New Balance shop while waiting for my friend, we were going to go run later. Checked out the NB 766 and 718 (both upgrades of my current shoes: 765 and 718) running shoes. I really liked the 766, it's light as my 765, but has more support on the heel. The 718 looked nicer, but still the same feeling of my 717. So the 766 is in my To Buy Later list!

5:00pm: Drove to KLCC to drop my friend off to send his parcel (we were in a hurry... we thought it was gonna close at 5:30pm). Found out that they were closing at 6pm. But we decided to go to Lake Gardens after that. But we couldn't... too jammed. So we took one whole big round back to KLCC Park again.

6:30pm(YES IT TOOK THAT LONG!!! BUGGA!): Started to run. Did a run/walk the first round as a warm-up. Then it started to rain, so we took shelter at the nearest hut. Thought it would recede soon... but it didn't! AND IT RAINED HARDER!! Ahhhh... NUTS!! We waited for more than half an hour. And we decided to run back to our car... got drenched, naturally. So much for training. Looks like I might do a 10k for KLIM. Sheetttt...

Man.. the jam back home... wah liao.. beh tahan.

Still haven't registered for KLIM. Nuts.

A plug for me boss, Greg:




Greg Lyons - Island To Island

GREG LYONS QUARTET @ THE SUGAR CLUB
Venue: The Sugar Club, Crown Plaza Mutiara
Date and Time: Tuesdays, 9:30pm - midnight
Admission: Free

After a week of holidays from Chinese New Year, the Greg Lyons Quartet is back again at the Sugar Club, Crown Plaza Mutiara Hotel, Jln. Sultan Ismail on Tuesday nights at 9:30pm. The Greg Lyons Quartet is Greg Lyons on sax/flute, Justin Lim on piano/keys, Andy Petersen on bass, and Lewis Pragasam on drums.

A powerhouse quartet, which will be playing songs from Greg's album, Island to Island (which you can purchase by emailing him at
gregblyons@hotmail.com) as well as some other jazz tunes that he's arranged. In addition, the next couple of weeks, you'll be seeing a slightly larger group joining him at Sugar Club, the Greg Lyons Nonet (that's 9-piece for you who don't know). It's basically adding another 5 horns to the Quartet (which will include myself on alto sax and flute), and it's in conjunction with Greg working on his new album (which includes the Nonet). Recording starts sometime this month. So, if you want to be the few who want to see the Nonet, do come over to the Sugar Club. There's no cover charge as well.

Sugar Club is the brand new club in the same premises as the old “Tin Mine”, to the left of the lower lobby of the Crown Plaza Mutiara (formerly Hilton) on Jalan Sultan Ismail. Tel 03-2143 0020.

See you there!

Your site Julian Chan, I found to be very interesting. When I was searching for 718 yours was the most eyecatching. While working on my site 718 I have been seeking ways to make it better and found yours to be helpful. Thanks!
