The National Library

I can't remember the last time I was at the National Library; it must've been during my PPP/ITM days so that's about 16 years ago.

I somehow mixed up my appointment time, leaving me with 2.5 hours to spare. With the exhorbitant parking rates in KLCC area, I decided to find either find 1) a free place where I can park my car and use my laptop or 2) a place where parking for two hours won't cost me more than my lunch. I decided to drive over to the National Library and with its ample free parking, decided that this would be a really nice place to spend two hours and catch up on my work. I registered myself here and maybe the next time I am in KL for a meeting, I could always drop by here and read.

p/s To the anonymous MCOB who commented on my earlier posting on my English, I would really appreciate it you could contact me at I would certainly like to improve on the quality of my posting and I am sure you could help me with that.

MCOBA Jalan Jalan Cari Makan #4

Sdr Salim '75, MCOBA JPM for Networking started a very interesting activity to promote MCOB-owned eateries via the Jalan Jalan Cari Makan (JJCM) series. Each time, one MCOB-owned is chosen and everyone would eat their heart out and go dutch on the final bill. I missed the first three but managed to join the fourth installment at Al Andalus Restaurant, Jalan Delima, KL.

16th December 2010

On this magical date, my second son, Amir Zharif came into the world at 8.57am, tipping the scale at 4.93kg.

Zharif outweighed his elder brother Amir Haris by more than 300g and also outgrowned him by 1cm.

However, we were put through a very anxious two weeks as Amir Zharif was detained at the hospoital; one day in the NICU and the rest in the 3rd floor nursery.

Cause : Fast respiration from birth.

All sorts of test was done on him, but Alhamdulillah, the doctors gave him a clean bill of health.

Welcome the world, Son.. and welcome to the family.
