The Missing Entry

Yeah...I was supposed to put some Merdeka shots but I have been too occupieed & I posted the Germany publication instead!

Well, we celebrated the Merdeka day and went to Dataran Merdeka - Aliya's first Merdeka Day outing. She had fun, so did we all!

We spent our weekends at the condo still, time to move in is coming nearer so recently we set an appoinment with the Primciple of their kindergarten to be....Chinese medium with day care services. Really cool skool! The kids really like the environment, so happy the love it! The fees...well, it's on the high side for many I am sure (with income like me lah!) but I'd give the best I could for my kids, no two ways about it.

I have not been shooting seriously for the past 2 weeks, this weekend I have to mentor a team of aspiring photgraphers for an outing assignment.

Thought of shooting the PKR Ifthar but decided not to...lepak with my kids that night instead!

...but, I wonder what will happen to this country - especially when the leaders are not playing their roles but busy hoarding the headlines in the media - stupidos.

If you ask me, who'd best to be the next PM from BN/ UMNO, I'd say I don't think there's any! Seriouly!

Mr bijaN? Ohh please! for a guy who could not even understand business priorities & simple economics and keeps on asking for more from a multinational O&G Corporation to run a country...I don't think so.

The other day we had an Ifthar invitation from one of Mama's business contact. The venue was Hotel Istana. We arrived about 20 minutes before maghrib and the place is already filled with people - gomen staff mosty, since the tables are marked with this and that ministries.....and more empty tables for gomen staff yet to be filled

Some of these gomen people were already queueing long lines for the foods!

Well...maybe they are just so used to be very efficient - everything they do is perfectly on time, including ifthar...

Mama asked for the business contact but the Hotel Istana staff had no clue - maybe she's with the corporate office they say...DUH! You don't know your staff who has been getting loads of moolahs from my wifey's effort? The business contact was obviously not a good host - she should have waited and greeted Mama or at least reserve a proper table for all the business that she has been getting.

So, we end up scouting around and could not find any seat for two. Then we asked one of the Hotel Istana staff to help us......

She took us around and keep on asking us to sit seperately because most of the tables are left with only single seat.

OK...fine. So I told her - no thank you and gave the piece of brochure they gave upon registration have not been a good host, everything was not done properly so I am not going to stay. They tried to convince to stay but I said firmly I am not here for the food but for the courtesy of being invited and since things are not done quite right, I do not wish to stay.

I can afford a decent ifthar, I am not crazy for the hotel food anyway - had loads of that but what pissed me off was they treated the gomen people like kings and the rest are asked to seat freely - we found out that many actualy left the scene that evening. Padan muka!

....and I thought gomen is to serve the nation....not the other way around.....
