Going for Course in KL

Just like any other profession, once the new year starts we need to refresh our CPD points and start again another year of collecting those 40points/ 7 days.. so I normally don't want to waste time and try to get most of those points as soon as I can, within the first half of the year if possible

 so off i go to a A1 20pointer course in KL! yay, half requirement done by Jan! Kiasu!

 stay in nicer hotel since its the beginning of the year for me.. the budget ones come later part of the year

hotel breakfast.. costs RM79!

 going for course at Sunway with colleagues

 dinner at the hotel that night

 although i took MAS, i also visit KLIA2 as its my new favourite airport now

and had lunch there (more varieties) ..penang laksa, korean noodles.. wantan mee. Had the toast in KLIA though. and suddenly.. my 4days 3nights trip comes to an end so soon!

the course was interesting, and dentistry is moving so so fast (doing crowns and bridges within a morning?? we take weeks in private practice.. and months in government) but are we ready for such advance fast treatment.. and a hefty cost (maybe a Myvi?) oh well.. learning is learning.. then its back to reality in the clinic..

Hello 2015

I apologize for this post being over a month late!

 spend the new year week at City One, revisiting Earthlings

 grew to like this place due to the cozy environment.. thankfully the Christmas decos are still there

revisited the Cozy cafe at Jalan Song.. just had mushroom soup and garlic bread

chilling at Starbucks at Summers, the first time this year.. and the first time in a long time actually

 watched the Dog Race at Hills Shopping Mall

late lunch at Puzzle, Pullman

 tried the Groupon offer at Oishi Japanese Restaurant, Rock Road, for dinner

 some is part of the offer..

and some we added on.. its kinda pricey still considering the portions

 having one of my favourite dishes, hongan (thick rice noodle) cooked in foochow style, either sour soup style (zai chai ho gan) or the dry fried style! even bought my own ingredients to cook both versions at home

 having pork ribs, lamb and chicken wings at Howdy's, Jalan Song.. don't forget to book during weekends

tried Fork & Knife, Jalan Setia Raja for the first time... not bad either
