I was there at KLCC after TEDxKL and I went to KL Sentral to celebrate Bat receiving paycheck and for the first time, much of famous big name in Malay blogsphere coming in. I’m not a big name anyway but glad to meet them.
Last saturday was an eventful day for me. I’ve attended TEDxKL 2. As an event that is organized by Malaysia Entrepreneurs, it does have many familiar faces and unfamiliar faces too hahah. Some of the familiar faces that the reader of this blog ( who might attached closely with my personal life ) are famous blogger Mohdismail, Amanz, Cikjee ( yeah DM student, our lecturer ), Emi, Fiona, sweemeng and the name list will go on and on and on.
TED is all about Technology, Entertainment and Design and also, the talks being given are ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’. That saturday surely has different speakers from different backgrounds and stands on question – What Malaysia Needs. For me, that question is quite big. Average Joe can tell what Malaysia need but we want to listen to extremely knowledgeable or credible Joe for that, and backing with some facts. So for that saturday, the speakers are Urmilla Dass, Surech Kuppusamy, Aloha Lavina, Raj Ridvan Singh, Afzal Rahim, Pete Teo, Ezrena Marwan, Yvonne Foong, Peter Nicoll and Steve McCoy. Premesh Chandran/Malaysiakini didn’t felt well and unable to give talks. Read more…
Last Saturday, I was at KLIA sending my parents, my grandparents for both sides ( grandparents on mother side, and grandfather on dad’s side ) and also a mother to my mother’s brother’s wife, to perform Umrah or just a trip visiting Mecca & Medina. On the way, I overheard my parents contacting their best friend during college years. Then, their best friend come to KLIA to send him. I’m unsure if I’ve ever told you before in my blog. My parents has a best-couple-friends and even have same-aged kids.
So I’m chit-chatting with him and discussed about stuff related. Then, it reaches to one point where we discussed about how women works. Since he’s working as Chargeman ( even his job is as same as my dad ) in one of food factory, he told me that his factory have near-equal amount of Quality Inspector. However, from his experience, the ratio is that female should never be more than male worker. At first when I heard that, it felt like “is he sexist?” But I let alone he talk and discuss what it is really about.
