I gives a 5 star for this design. But I was told that this was the origianl from Casuarina Hotel. They just make good and upgrade it. But it was great to see it fully occupied all the times. In magazinez and wbsite, usually all I could see are empty cool seats. Now I know how its been use. Scary jugak amik gambar ni.. takut mamat omputi tu marah plak amik gambar dia pakai trunk je.
I loveeee this section.. 5 star to this design also. Its a courtyard in between the coffee house and the Hall of Fame. Of course, it was packed with smokers taking time out here during functions.. but it cold also be a nice runaway for a daddy who hates noise (hehehehh) and for kids to play. In the morning, the section feels fresh and a nice place to have a warm breakfast. I like those pebbles floor finish, with polish pebbles arranged to form Hard Rock logo.
The Hotel did renovation on the interior, while the layout of the rooms maintain. Major changes are on the ground floor, pool area, landscape and facilities.
Of course, there always gonna be review. Pictures aren't in order.. sajer je put that way ... :P
I love .. i mean loooveeeee the carpet.. so new- so trendy.. it gives the room a different atmosphere. To some people carpet are just carpet.. you step on it... but look, even Zahraa loves it too
And this cushion is cute too.. I think so many people would want to have this. I wonder how many of it has been stolen.
But overall.. the bathroom is cool.. and nice-made from non expensive brands, but seems to end up great. Zahraa suka jugak toilet ni.. dia main kat dlm tu.
Thats all for the room. Overall, I give it 3.5 star. There'll be more review coming on the other facilities of the hotel. Keep on rockin' readin' fellassss

Here's what he wrote:
As state government is pushing for ICT and K-economy development.
Our state GLC has spent 1.6 million building a facility call ‘enterprise lab’ inside mayang mall which my office is currently located.
During the renovation of the facility, i thought the office is utilised by a US or Singapore based multi national company because the design was exclusive, high tech and great!
Seems that our state government really putting the money to benefit the incubatees who are going to be the tenant for the new facility.
The whole facility is segregated into 2 portion, one is tech lab which would be run by MDec (www.msc.com.my) who is using it to run programs for the recipients for technopreneur pre seed grant. The other side are for other new ICT startup to rent at a lower than market rate price to startup their companies.
PDC decided to outsource this incubation centre to the industry as they feel that it would be better for the industry to come in and manage it so that the incubatees can gain knowledge and experience from the industry immediately.
The final decision was to let ’scope’ software consortium of penang, ‘techbiz’ bumiputra technology business association, ‘PAC’ penang automation cluster and ‘PRFC’ penang radio frequency cluster which are all cluster of penang state under the division ‘invest penang berhad’ to handle.
In the end a cluster alliance was formed which consist of all cluster chairman to handle the overall planning. Going through the costing of the incubation centre, i realize that incubation is really a money losing machine which cannot generate profit from it’s core business which is incubation.
But with assistance from state government and federal government, the overall business model can barely breakeven. But for the sake of Penang state, which i also don’t want to see more ‘white elephants’ come out. It is most probably that the ‘cluster alliance’ would take up the responsibility.
Oh yes.. please dont make this a white elephant.. I really hope they utilize this up to max. I enjoyed as much this project, even though it took some time to kick off and finish up.

Until it was 3 weeks after, the jaw doesnt seems right. The teeth and gums are all okay, but the jaw keeps on clucking. Till the GP told me to see a dentist, which I did (and had to spend time surrendering my mouth and teeth to her, and surrender more than hundred ringgit too) and she told me - it has got nothing to do with my teeth! And it was no urgency at all to took off the wisdom tooth. In the end - it was STRESS!!! Yeah, you heard me.. just stress!!!
And of course, our good friend Mr Google gives us some hints.. From here
Over time, these symptoms tend to become progressively worse, leading many to look for TMJ cures to help relieve the suffering.
There isn't one specific thing that can lead to TMJ but here is a list of the Top 5 most common causes of TMJ:
1. Teeth grinding and teeth clenching (bruxism)
2. Constant gum chewing or fingernail biting
3. Dental problems and misalignment of the teeth (malocclusion).
4. Trauma to the jaws
TMJ symptoms vary from person to person. There are also a wide variety of symptoms that may seem to affect areas other than the TM joints, particularly the ears, head, face and teeth.
Here is a list of the Top 5 most common symptoms of TMJ:
1) Jaw clicking or popping if the most common symptom. There may or may not be pain associated with the pop
2) TMJ Locking - The jaw may lock partially when opening or closing the mouth
3) Headaches - This is a symptoms that I am very familiar with. The temples, back of the head, and even the shoulders may ache.
4) Ear Problems - This could be ear pain, stuffiness, fullness or even a loss of hearing. I tend to have pain behind the jaw, radiating up to the ear.
5) Sensitive Teeth - Along with headaches and ear problems, TMJ can cause sensitive teeth. It's often hard to distinguish between teeth problems and TMJ.
Cure???? Well, there's no really a medical cure to it. Doctors just prescribed me with some antibiotics, pain killers and some pills to reduce swelling. And the net says - it will be cured when the reasons are eliminated. Ouch!!! That means more weeks of pain to me. DOctors suggest me to rest, give your self some time and rest??? In the beginning of the year?? yeahhh rightttt..
And thinking back - do I have anything or do anything that leads me to this stressful situation?? Let me think..
yeah.. maybe I did indeed.
1. Struggle with my staffs, to get things done.
2. Worrying of the due date - to get job done
3. Sudden bundle of workload
4. Hatred to the boss
5. NO BONUS? Hahahahahha
6. Zahraa's behaviour change while in KL. She became naughty, cant be control, screaming and crying - name it
7. I cant get things controlled under my nose
8. Or maybe I'm just tired
Eliminate stress?? Seems like that need a big effort from me

menunjukkan bahawa Dia (Allah) adalah sebagai Yang dipertuhankan dan
disembah. Dipertuhankan oleh semua makhluk dengan penuh kecintaan,
pengagungan, ketundukan dan berlindung kepada-Nya dalam semua hajat dan
musibah yang menimpa.
Inilah sebenarnya maksud di sebalik kalimah Allah SWT. Ia bukanlah satu kalimah
yang sekadar menjadi sebutan atau seruan atau panggilan bagi tuhan semata-mata.
Sebaliknya ia merupakan nama yang melambangkan aqidah atau agama bagi orang
yang menggunakannya. Oleh itu penggunaannya amat wajar dipantau dan dipelihara
oleh kerajaan demi memastikan tiada sesiapa yang terkeliru dengan nama Yang
Maha Agung itu.
That was from an article from Cawangan Aqidah, Bahagian Penyelidikan Jakim. It can be downloaded from the net, in the PDF format. After the celebration of new year pasts, and the enthusiasm of Malaysian to welcome the year, in a better economy state, this issues bombarded the country just like those firecrakcers lighted on those new years nights. It was all over media then about those arson bombing in several places over our country.
It began when The High Court allows the usage of the word Allah, to pardon the application from the Herald Catholic newspaper. And some days after that there were many blogs, and articles written due to this. Some wrotes, the word Allah could be used by anyone to refer God. Some says, the word Allah has been used by non Muslim since like forever. While some other features hadith, the meaning, the discussion on how holy the word is.
To me, this is a very sensitive issue in our country. Maybe, The High Court allows this, maybe after referring some reliable sources, that is not wrong to be used by non Muslims. And the meaning however still goes to the Almighty God. But the thing is, have they ever consider the aftermath of the decision. There'll be speculation, misunderstanding, misguidance of the usage, and name it.. there'll be thousands of unsatisfied groups of people. The arson bombing might just be the introduction of it. after the bombing, societies and goverment put all their effort to offer security to churches, this then also leads to antipathy to Muslims (like, wah.. hebatnya nak protect church... masjid tak pernah nak protect pun.. u see what i mean??) So many people have been questioning, throw the same thing - why on earth does Herald wanted to use the word Allah, since it has never been used before by non Muslims in our country. Why dont Herald comes out, make a PC or something (PC- Press conference) or at least explain whay they want to use it after all, if it is not for misguiding the Muslims.
However, from PGSM website (Persatuan Peguam Syarie Malaysia) it was annouces this -
Masyarakat Islam menarik nafas lega dan memanjatkan kesyukuran kepada Allah apabila membaca pengumuman Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Dr Abdullah Mohd Zain yang menafikan kerajaan membenarkan penerbitan akhbar Herald- The Catholic Weekly
Can this close the case? I dont think so .. what do you think ?????
Seems the 2010 jump start was quite a jectic one for me.. with meetings, and commitments all thru the 1st week. I guess I just have to change the formation of my previous life cycle. 4-4-2 doenst seems to work anymore - hey .. what crap am I saying here... hahha (seems like the World Cup fever kicks off early this year) No.. what I mean is.. there's a lot of thing I need to revive, and change working style.. and do less honeymooning. I have some new projects in hands to commence this year.
And it is totally a change in hour home sweet home too!!! Zahrein is studying again!!!! Doing something no one could guess he will do ever! It looks quite not right at first, and happen all in a flash - but I am not the first to comment or protest, yet I am the first to support, and try to re-adjust whatever we already had for years. Its good for him, its just that he has to work harder, and mange his time. He is good at that, I am not worry. Hope he achieve success.
And Zahraa, the lil one, lil gem in our home - has been so magnificently blooming and melt our heart. She is fast learner, and behaving more than her age now. Yes, she was naughtier every single day, but that was all her, trying to grow up and explore what she can do.
I pray that this year, will bring us all hapiness, blessing, strong faith and believe, good health and prosperity as well. And may this blog goes on with good writing and info.
What resolution?? well.. that could take another entry or to :P
