Selangor - Equitorial Hotel Bangi

Actually, I went to Bangi Equitorial Hotel for my PTK3.. resit I might add cz I only got III for the exam module. I need to get the level IV for my anjakan gaji or wages shift so back I go for the retaking of the exam... and for meeting up friends and colleagues.. as well as free hotel food hahahaha.. well, we're the government servant is notorius for the 6 meals per day requirement :)

Hubby went along as I cant drive the long journey myself anymore.. to tired now that I'm 8 month preggies.. we drove from Kerteh around noon.. then stop over to Kuantan for hubby to do his banking stuff at HSBC.. then to KL for dinner... arriving at around 7pm for a bit of Japanese food at Yoshinoyo at KLCC's Foodcourt.. yumm...

An hour later we arrived at the hotel.. a bit late cz we left KL during peak hours and therefore stuck in jam.. hmm.. Kimi and his fav. thing to do i.e. jump on hotel beds..

Another fav. thing.. languishing in the bathtub :)

Father and son having nescafe and oreo over balmy night with the nice view of Bangi town.. very nice...

Breakkie for the guys.. had only 1 breakfast coupon so have to pay extra.. hubby at RM42.. and Kimi's at RM21.. hmm.. anyway, that far outweight the cost of the room which would be at least RM180 for the government servant..

Going round the courtyard...

Hmm.. the guys had to head back to Kerteh and I'm stuck with the course.. hahaha.. a backbencher now cz I just need to retake the exam part.. huhu.. really hope I got the level IV needed especially I was told that JPA only allows PTK 3 to try for PTK 4level only once.. cost cutting?? You betcha!

EMBA - QMT 760 Quantitative Analysis for Management

Hmmm I was trying to do bits of housekeeping of my official Lotus Notes but the thing just keep hanging.. so thinking of destressing the stress of deleting XXXXL sizes email hahaha.. had to cz my quota is nearly 99% full...

Hmm... want to jot a bit about my second class this sem.. i.e. Forecasting or the official name of Quantitative Analysis for Management.. hmm.. I dont't think I studied this during my degree year cz maybe I was doing majors in Accounting & Finance and this subject got slashed. But.. not withstanding the calculation, I quite like the subject.. granted I need to do study which would be mostly calculation exercise but I think I can overcome that... at least it wont be as bad as Economic Analysis.. that one is hazardous...

The gist of the subject is on how manager make business decision by weighting of payoff or outcomes.. usages of payoff table.. decision trees and calc such as Minimax, Maximin and EMV is done. The text book also comes with a CD for QM Excel which I think is really useful for managers making their decision...

Hmm.. the text book pages and exercise given in class.. the text book looks like ordinary calculation books :P

Our lecturer.. Prof Madya Dr. Khalipah.. very nice lecturer :).. very good with explaining concepts and making us understand the exercises given (loadsss of it)

Pahang - Bukit Gambang Waterpark

About two weeks ago, I had an unexpected reprieve from EMBA due to UiTM having to shut down as it was declared positive cases of H1N1.. so, hubby, Kimi & me had a blast going to Kuantan town to try out the Bukit Gambang Waterpark..

We embarked on our journey a bit late cz hubby worked halfday on Friday.. then stop a bit for Friday prayer at Cherating, lunch at MIDO restaurant.. and we only arrived at BG around 4 pm... and the park closed at 5.45 pm... huhu.. so we better not waste more time...

First stop at MIDO.. was soo hungry I forgot to snap our lunch pic hehhehe.. had Ginger Chicken, Sizzling Beancurd and the usual veggies.. Kimi's of course Telur Mata (Fried Egg)...

Kimi posed infront of the Gambang development.. apart from the waterpark.. there's resort area (we tried to book one-room apartment as investment but was rejected.. huhu).. as well as residential areas, shops etc...

Dad and son going in.. the fees for us adults were RM20 and Kimi's RM12.. we also have to pay upfront RM50 for things that we might need to buy inside such as the baloon... safe box .. meals etc (but the balance is refundable)..

The attractions inside...

OPM 770 - Operation Management Part II

Last week was my third week of OPM... a bit of concern cz UiTM DUngun was confirmed as a certified site of H1N1 virus.. and I have two strikes against me - a pregnant woman as well as obesity, I was really concerned cz one of the fatalities of H1N1 a few days before that was a 23 year old woman, just a week after given birth... Hmm now its already a day after my foray to the drop zone.. I have taken 2 panadol just for precautinary measure.. I hope I wont get either the usual flu or H1N1.. maybe I'm having phobia attack esp some of my classmate sneezed and coughed, 1 had just recovered from a usual flu... hehe.. well better be safe than sorry...

Anyway... a bit about the class.. our lecturer is Prof. Dr. Wan Mansor Wan Mahmood.. he's ok.. just a little narrative as per lecture notes but mostly he guided us via discussions on OPM... last weekend we did group presentation.. our was Dell Corporation so included in our presentation was how Dell's get to become one of the world leaders after HP... I'm not really satisfied with our group presentation seeing some others did bettter.. well .. hmm have to get good marks for the Article then as well as the exam... I'm postponing the exam a week later cz got PTK Exam at Equitorial Bangi..
