Woke up at 5:30 am

This morning, I woke up at 5:30 am to start checking my emails and do microjobs, filled up a survey and some blogging work on my many blogs in Blogspot. I also had a delicious dinner last night at Red Rock Hotel treated by my spouse to my family. We had codfish in Teriyaki sauce, a bowl of braised mushrooms, broccoli, fish maw, scallops, and some vegetables, which was rather sumptuous. Then one of the 5 dishes also includes tofu in 2 styles, topped with fried straw mushrooms and garnished with spring onions. We also had soft-shelled crabs cooked in egg yolk and it was scrumptious! Simply ambrosia! We also had long green dragon vegetables stir-fried with garlic and finally thin noodles or 'bee hoon' fried in Singapore style.

St Mary's Cathedral hosts visit by British royalty again, after 19 years

After 19 years, the St Mary's Cathedral near Dataran Merdeka in Jalan Raja Saturday hosted a visit by British royalty.

Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, visited the Anglican church as part of their ongoing seven-day maiden visit to Malaysia.

The last time that the church hosted a visit by a member of the British royalty was in 1998 when Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II paid a visit when she attended the official opening of the 16th Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur.

The Queen had also visited the church in 1989 during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Kuala Lumpur.

Prince Charles and Camilla arrived at the church at 10.10 am in a heavy drizzle and were welcomed by Archbishop Datuk Ng Moon Hing.

Their Royal Highnesses were accompanied by minister-in-attendance Datuk Seri S.K. Devamany, who is deputy minister in the Prime Minister's Department.

The royal visitors attended the 40-minute church service and then met church members and several staff of the British High Commission who were also present.

Prince Charles and Camilla signed the guest book before leaving.

Archbishop Ng told Bernama later that the church members were delighted and excited over the visit by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

He said he showed Prince Charles the plaque commemorating the visit of Queen Elizabeth II in 1989 and he said he remembered that visit.

The visit of Prince Charles and Camilla to Malaysia is part of a 11-day tour of Their Royal Highnesses to Singapore, Malaysia and India from Oct 30 to Nov 9.

Hats off to 100 top entrepreneurs

THEY are young, bold, successful and influential entrepreneurs and their outstanding achievements have inspired many others.

To encourage more of such young entrepreneurs, these figures will be honoured at a prestigious “The 100 Most Influential Young Entrepreneurs (The 100 MIYE)” gala dinner on Nov 24 at the Majestic Hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

“This is not an awards night, but a gesture of appreciation whereby 100 creative and innovative young Malaysian entrepreneurs will be honoured.

“These young entrepreneurs have all set a certain standard and are pioneers in their own fields,” said Armani Media Sdn Bhd managing director Datuk K.K. Chua, the organiser of the event.

The 100 MIYE recipients comprise business leaders, founders and co-founders of successful startups and chief executive officers of well-known local companies.

To mark this prestigious event, an exclusive coffee-table book will be launched featuring key industry leaders in various fields such as art and style, education, entertainment, finance and investment, food and beverage, manufacturing, real estate and science, among others.

“The 100 MIYE recognition acknowledges successful businessmen under 45 years of age. They have been prominently featured in print and social media for their philanthropic work and other achievements.

“They have also made an impact in the social, economic and industrial landscape,” said Chua, an experienced property commentator and investor with more than 10 years’ experience.

Nominated by a panel of judges, these young entrepreneurs are not only committed and enthusiastic business leaders, but also innovators of new ideas with the skills to execute their great ideas in the market.

“They possess traits that have made them successful entrepreneurs. Their efforts have led to profitability and success, and made a positive impact in the industry,” Chua added.

“Our past year’s winner for instance, actress Neelofa, is one of the richest and most influential celebrities around. She has been in the limelight since she got into the tudung (headscarf) business because of her highly public profile.

“As a successful young influential entrepreneur, she has managed to build her empire over the years.”

Other entrepreneurs who were honoured at the same event last year were super model and businesswoman Amber Chia, Datuk Calvin Khiu of MK Curtain Group, actress, model and television host Nora Danish, business coach Jeevan Sahadevan and Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd executive director Mohd Imran Tan Sri Mohd Salim.

Recipients of 100 MIYE will be invited to attend a power breakfast with all the other recipients and take part in a business-matching session and networking exclusive lunch.

They will also be invited to a retreat to a chosen destination and might even attend a short business course at a prestigious university.

Last year’s recipients will also be invited to this networking exercise.

“We have a few attractive packages for the recipients which we will unveil later. Recipients of last year’s 100 MIYE also managed to leverage their businesses through this platform,” he said.

There is also the e-Young Entrepreneurs’ Outreach Fund, a fund-initiative to nurture young talents via engagement of prominent entrepreneurs with future stakeholders in academic institutions, who will share their experiences and mentorship in their entrepreneurship journey.

“We need to encourage more youths to go into entrepreneurship. Through this investment fund, 10 aspiring entrepreneurs will be given a grant and assistance to connect with other entrepreneurs,” concluded Chua.

Came Back from KL Yesterday

Yesterday, we met up with a potential client in Rawang and drove down at 6:00am in the morning, had the interview at noon and then it was back to Penang to care for our 5 pets. They just came back from pet hotel or pet boarding and it must have been stressful for them to stay in a different environment and possibly, all crammed up for the bunnies. This is because, I Whatsapp the owner and asked for pictures of the bunnies in their habitat but he did not show me any photos. So, I guess, he wants to hide something. I also bought some fruits for parents in Tapah where we have a 15-minute stopover to rest and nap. My spouse was the driver and he certainly needs his rest.

Going to KL in a Short While

I shall be going to KL in a short while, all dressed up and packed my traveling bag with vitamins, clothes, etc. I am a little tired mentally, but still press on and I could nap in the car while my partner drives to KL with stops in Tapah and near Bukit Merah. I love what I am doing and will continue to be just as committed in whatever endeavour I pursue. Blogging is one of them and I will try to update it at least once a week or so when time permits. I also have 95 articles to write of 100+ words for USD 1 each. My second sister, Karen will return to London and then Southampton tomorrow after staying in Penang for 1 month to clear the house of rubbish and mess. She did a pretty good job and I am proud of her, finally getting her PhD soon.

The Home should be a Sanctuary

The home should be a sanctuary and not a place for war between 2 parties. The best couples are those who team up against the world and not the other way round. The man should not team up with neighbours and rival against the spouse. This will surely lead to split ups, in due time. Divorces are very real and that is due to lost of respect for each other, financial difficulties or the spartk is no longer there and the person you once fell in love with had become a stranger at home, doing the daily grind of housework at home without any other intimacy or close communication. Worse, still every sentence is shot down with rude belittling remarks to show who is the boss! This should not be the way!
