Samsung Galaxy SIII Roadshow

Hello blog readers, I would like to say sorry that I have been quite a few days didn't update my blog post. Anyway, today I would like to share about the Samsung Galaxy SIII Roadshow which held in Queensbay Mall in the early of month June!
This is Samsung Galaxy SIII with the slogan of "Design for Human Being", if I am not mistaken. It was launched since 31st May 2012 and became the latest smartphone among Apple, HTC, Nokia and many more products. The unique shape with curves were attracted me to touch on it! The extreme big screen was designed like border-less and it's nice to look at and also light to be carried.

The DiGi Telco promoters were there promoting for the new designed smartphone Samsung Galaxy SIII. They also recommended the package for the current DiGi users as to encourage them to subscribe for the DiGi Smart Plan. 

Many people were there testing for the new released smartphone. How smart is it? It's Samsung Galaxy SIII the latest smartphone in the world now before iPhone 5 release. Posted by GenYong 30.06.2012

New Look of Penang International Airport

Penang International Airport has turned a new look since year 2011. The construction work had started since year 2010 I still remember the time when I always take bus from school to airport and walked home. It  was happened 2 years ago, now the airport outlook has totally changed.
The Penang International Airport had the big renovation for outlook and also interior. Building up the new wing for local departure station and also local arrival station. The interior of Penang International Airport also doing a big renovation and it was a mess now! Lack of shops, full of dust, crowded and lack of direction, not a good impression for tourists!
But anyhow the outlook is nice and no more traffic jam in airport... I always went there because it is near my house. I used to go there observe for their construction works almost every week. The working process were quite slow and the dusty environment make tourists not comfortable... I could see that.
The most convenient side is tourist can ever board on bus with just only walk out from Penang International Airport arrival hall. The outside of departure hall were extended until larger and it can suit two way lanes traffic! Good one... I am looking forward for the new airport with completely built! =) Posted by GenYong 22.06.2012

New Giant Supermarket Farlim

Good news to Penang Air Itam Region residents. There is another new shopping side for residents to purchase their daily goods. It is Giant Supermarket Farlim, it is located at All Season Places, which is a new township of Farlim along the Thean Teik Road. Giant Departmental Store (Malaysia) had expanded their business at Farlim and open for service the resident with the fresh goods out there.
It is the 4th Giant outlet in Penang Island after Penang Plaza, Prangin Mall, Bayan Baru. It is not really large scale like hypermarket, just can be said that it was like a convenient neighbourhood store. Its open really beneficial to all the Farlim residents!
Previously this building was owned by the Belleview Group which is the developer of the All Season Places. It was the Property Show Gallery that owned by Belleview Group as now it has turned to be the place for Giant Supermarket to operate their business.

I went there with my family while there was the Agong's birthday holiday. It was just open for a few days and there was crowded of people. Maybe there are a new place so many of people were going there to take a look on the new environment plus that day is public holiday too, that's why there were so many people. Well, it was having a big deal discount there too! 
The Giant Supermarket has 2 floors which the ground floor is selling groceries goods, food, vegetables and many more. Whereas for 2nd floor, there are the daily products section which selling clothes, electrical stuffs, house cabinets and many more. This supermarket is quite big and nice, the escalator I think is the longest escalator that I saw in Penang before! This Giant supermarket is quite cool and nice but maybe it's quite crowded when I was there and I feel not so comfortable.
All Season Place is a new township for Farlim that developed by Belleview Group. Previously this place is actually a construction site but due to economics crisis, the development end up with nothing and lately Belleview Group pledge to develop back the place. As inside this project there are Melody Homes, All Season Park 4 Condominiums Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, All Season Places Shoplots and also the Giant Supermarket! You can check out the website for more details!

La Kaffa Ipoh Family

Talking about La Kaffa, yes it's a good news for coffee lovers in Penang. La Kaffa is coming to Penang soon maybe this June! Alright why I keep on promoting La Kaffa this few months? As I am not the signature model from them also right? Actually, my previous boss is going to operate another franchising F&B outlet from Taiwan besides Chatime!
My boss, supervisor and I.
La Kaffa is 80% serving in coffee just like Starbucks or Coffee Bean. This coffee concept was from Taiwan. Recently in the month of March, La Kaffa was opened in AEON Station 18, Ipoh and becoming the 2nd outlet in Malaysia. I was there working for one week! I was just helping them in the opening and also learn some skill of making a better coffee!
Sometimes there was no customer so we take the chance to have some group shot or some funny camera playing too! As I was not there for long time, so I very appreciate everyday at there! It was fun to work with them!
We are the non-official signature model for La Kaffa Coffee! xD
I was first time out from Penang alone and working under a strange place. I was nervous when I first arrived there. It was quite strange to me! Luckily my senior Max Lim, Nelson Loo, Ah Fann were there giving me advice on how to work out for better coffee. Thank you very much!
He is Nelson Loo, I called him as ah Hoe! A nice guy....
She is ah Fann and she's very kind to everyone! 
She's Ah Hua, the 1st batch worker for La Kaffa!
They're ah Hong and ah Hean! Both of them are part time bartender for La Kaffa!
At Ipoh, there were a lot of leng zai leng lui means handsome boys and pretty girls which attracted me to know them as friends. Hahaa.. I was just kidding and it was great that I have the chance to meet back my previous Leo Club's friends who stay in Ipoh and Kampar.
Well I am glad to have the chance to work in Ipoh for a week! Not a long period of working there but through out the 3 months of my working life, I was lucky to get the chance working in Ipoh, tasted Ipoh food and learnt how to be independent! It is good, really thanks to my boss! Are you looking forward to La Kaffa? Yes it's coming really soon...
