Lunch @ Sri Ayutthaya

Last Friday, one of my colleague suggested to have lunch at Sri Ayutthaya. So off we go to the restaurant which located in Wangsa Maju (their newest outlet). Little did i know that the restaurant is quite pricey because i don't feel like to pay RM20+ for my lunch especially tengah bulan. But then we were already inside the restaurant already so we just ordered few dishes and share.

Lots of fresh flowers at the entrance.

More fresh flowers!

Lunch @ Sri Ayutthaya

And this is a waitress yang sangat kekwat. When we first arrived, she already left an 'impression'. Biler tanya banyak muka annoyed and cam malas nak jawab (like 'you-can't-afford-to-eat-here' look) and she don't even bother to smile. Hey you have to treat everyone like a first time customer. In fact it is our first time there...most of us actually. Then when we were ordering our food, she hit the jack pot! I'm not sure why Kak Wy jokingly asked air aper paling murah which obviously air kosong, but i don't like the waitress spontaneous respond at that time. She went 'Ya Allah akak?!!' sambil rolled her eyes. Ok the question might be annoying, but u don't have to buat unbelievable expression lah. Oppps citer dia plak lagik panjang dari pasal makan :P

While waiting for our food.

Dah start kelaparan

The dishes were Green Curry Beef, Spring chicken with Longan sauce (x sure :P), Kerabu Manggo and Tomyam Thalay (seafood). The green curry was delicious and the tomyam was so good! The other 2 were so-so.

After the makan2, Kak Hai paid for the food in advance. Then we split the bill among 11 of us where i have to pay RM15. Phew!

Lunch @ BBQ Chicken

One fine day, I had lunch with colleagues at BBQ Chicken @ Aeon Au. That morning, D bought a voucher for BBQ chicken from salesgirl kat opis which entitled us to buy 1 free 1. Hence the BBQ chicken that afternoon.

Lunch @ BBQ

Ordered some food based on the voucher's rules =P

Lunch @ BBQ

Time sampai we were the only customer in that restaurant. But sadly our food sampai lambat jugak. Lunch hour kat stu mostly orang office, they should buat kejer faster lah because orang nak masuk opis balik. Sib baik lah the meal i ordered, Chicken Jerk tuh sedap!

Lunch @ BBQ

And thanks to D who had the voucher, we get to eat this gargantuan ice cream for free. But tawar lah plak hehe. 6 orang share pon takleh nak abeskan sumer ice cream tuh because it's too huge.

Lily's 4th Birthday

We celebrated Lily's birthday at the Sakura Kristal, Aeon AU. We had buttered prawn, tofu, ginger & onion beef, ayam masak pedas kot?! Can't really recall what we ordered that afternoon. Cam Adly and Didi masing2 ordered lasagna and nasik goreng.

Lily's 4th Birthday

While borak, Adly and Didi sibok main game. Tak kesah dunia dah.

Lily's 4th Birthday

Gaaahhh i'm not really keen to be in the pictures these days. Muka bolattt :( Cheep with new haircut.

Lily's 4th Birthday

Then it's time to cut the cake. The waiters & waitress kat stu tolong nyanyi skali ^.^ but unfortunately Lily dah tarik muka time nie. Dia segan nak potong cake kat public lah pulak.

Since Lily malu2 kucen nak blow the candle, Didi tolong tiupkan. Dah start potong cake baru Lily ada mood sket nak senyum. Betuahh! Then bagi Lily hadiah from both of us. Since she likes Dora sangat so we bought her Dora plush toy.

Lily's 4th Birthday

And yay she loves it :D Tgk muka dia sengih2 malu camtuh mmg priceless hehe. Happy 4th birthday Lily. Hugs and kisses from Achu.

D'Tour at D'House (Digi) - Part II

Lepas makan, we started D'Tour by groups. Wpon jenjalan, we were assigned to take photos at 10 checkpoints in a most creative way. The first stop was Townhall. Next was the Call Center. Bleh tengok all the operators duduk depan pc jawab call (inquiries and complains). Fuhhh first time tgk nie. There's a big screen kat tetengah tuh to alert all the operators if ada pape problem ngan line or whatsoever so they're prepared to answer straightaway. Also ada chill room kat sini where the staff can take a break.

These are the photos we took for our assignment at this checkpoint. (Pix credit to Aaron)


One of the aisle.

One of the door heading towards these cheerful stairs. They did mural painting to encourage staff to use the stairs instead of lift.

D'Tour at Digi

Then we walked towards the cafeteria. Along the way, saw some motivational quotes at the window.

A view from the bridge connecting office and cafeteria.

D'Tour at Digi

Arrived at the cafeteria. It was open air concept! Which is very nice because the foodcourt at my office sangat lah tertutup sampai asap takleh pegi mana. Everytime we walked out, bau minyak lingers on our baju. But i'm not sure how hot it can be here when it's crowded and cuaca tgh panas.

D'Tour at Digi

The cafeteria's name is Reload.

D'Tour at Digi

The spastic shots. (Pix credit to Aaron)



Lepas sesi amik gambar at the checkpoints, we continued the tour memanjat bukit.

D'Tour at Digi

Kat atas nih ada few exercise equipments. Besnyer ada hutan kecik where you can lepak amik fresh air.

D'Tour at Digi

Another checkpoint where we formed alphabets DG. Looks kinda weird but agak jadik lah jugak.



Next checkpoint was Serambi, 2 meeting room with different concepts. First one was Scandinavian style because their major share holder is Telenor. So kene lah ada identity Scandinavian look sket. The model is not a scandinavian though.

D'Tour at Digi

Another angle of the room

The second room is more like Malaysian classic style with songket on the wall, permainan tradisional and instrument at one corner.

D'Tour at Digi

Eat Cafe with a very relaxing concept.

D'Tour at Digi

Digi's merchandise shop was our 2nd last checkpoint. Lepas tuh amik gambar kat lobby depan studio and that was the end of D'Tour.

D'Tour at Digi

Sipping coffee while waiting for other groups to finish their tour. Was really exhausted at that time. Rasa cam baru balik team building sbb bepeluh2 ronda opis and turun naik bukit.

D'Tour at Digi

Eyeing the prizes as well.

D'Tour at Digi

After sumer orang dah kumpul balik, dorang buat session for birthday peeps yang jatuh dalam bulan Jan-March. So masing2 dapat broadband prepaid kot. Last skali dorang announce group mana yang menang best photos etc. Time nih mmg tak dengar dah ada category aper and who won what. But all i know was Cheep's group won Premium Spa voucher yang sangat awesome! Time belek satu2 voucher tuh trus lompat gumbira padahal bukan hadiah aku. Sbb bukan calang2 punyer amount...the total was RM2k! Yeehaw! And spa usually related to ladies kannn so saper lagik yang dapat if it's not the wifey. Big hiksssss disitu!

D'Tour at Digi

What he got is also mine lah, kan laling? To be fair, we had system barter. I gave him the musical mug that my group won. And everybody happy :)

D'Tour at Digi

To sum it all, the entire event was great, properly organized, and I've gained some experience. But maybe the itinerary could be shortened to 4 hours. Because it felt like working on weekends but at somebody else's office hehe. After attending this D'Tour, i wish my working environment has some similarities like Digi.

D'Tour at D'House (Digi) - Part I

I got an invitation by Digi for D'Tour at D'House (Digi's HQ). It means i get to see the ppl behind FB and Twitter, get to explore their office which is well known for environmental friendly, and of course to get some freebies. How i got the invitation? By randomly answering some questions about their rewards at facebook page. The event started at 11am-5pm...quite long eh? It is! But the good thing was i don't feel bored that i wanted to walk out from the event.

And one more fact is that their office is in Shah Alam. Lagik lah nak pegi sbb dekat hehe. I was informed to car pool because that's one of their policy. Me and Cheep bedua kira car pool lah jugak tuh kan. So when we arrived we proceed to the main entrance, registered ourselves and we got these passes.

D'Tour at Digi

My first impression when i stepped in the Studio was 'wah nice and colorful!'. All the seats are not the boring type i always see at my company. Saw most of the participants were already making themselves comfortable and hyped. The other cool thing spotted was 'free wifi' huhu!

D'Tour at Digi

They served breakfast kuih, coffee and tea. Sambil makan, dorang bagi soklan like who is digi's staff with twitter ID xxx. To answer, we were supposed to ask around. So aku dengan tak malunyer tanya the digi staff yang diri dekat2 ngan kitowang hehe. So sorang tuh, James angkat tangan and admit it was his ID. So dengan senang hati i went to the stage (tayah jonah2 nak berebut jawab), answered the question and got myself a black umbrella. rezeki rezeki :)

D'Tour at Digi

And then there were some slides presentation by 3 cool Digi presenters who talked about ppl behind the FB and twitter, digi's achievement and promotion. Saw the slide disclaimer '(not really) confidential' lol! After all that, tetiba dorang suruh gather with other participants ikot sticker at tag. Kene separate lah plak because my sticker was green and cheep's was pink. So sesi icebreaking started.

D'Tour at Digi

The first group's task was to perform at the stage based on the instruction. My group had to sing and we chose MJ's Thriller because most of everybody know MJ's steps. Siap pasang lagu Thriller lagik haha mubsi ada mp3 in their laptop. And i opted to stand behind. Malu occay dahler tak reti dance.

D'Tour at Digi

Cheep's group plak had to act. So dorang blakon movie Titanic version Digi. And guess who was the hero, Cheep kene blakon jadik Jack. lol! The dialog went something like this lah "Oh my phone takde coverage. I feel like i want to jump" terbwahahaha! The next task was Digi gave us a list of questions and we were to answer it via Facebook. Time nih lah masing2 (mostly) kuarkan blackberry and iPhone to browse for asnwers. And the team leader punyer facebook wall jadik mangsa spam.

D'Tour at Digi

The 'energetic' performance made us really hungry. The organizer quickly ushered us outside where the lunch was served. The first view when we entered this area. Nice kan??

D'Tour at Digi

And the caterer was Bubba Gump! Awesome ehhh! Some tables had the famous bucket with 'Run Forrest Run/ Stop Forrest Stop' sign which added the feel. Cheep cracked a joke time tgh tunggu, since the event is called D'Tour at D'House, sib baik lah caterer bukan D'Saji hahaha!

D'Tour at Digi

Queuing for our turn. Aper exact menu dia i can't remember but i know there were pasta, 2 types of roasted chicken, garden salad, nachos & salsa and garlic bread.

D'Tour at Digi

Since Digi is environmentally conscious, they restricted the use of foamed polystyrene. That is why Bubba Gump provide plates :)

D'Tour at Digi D'Tour at Digi

My lunch. Salad came later because dorang lambat replenish. Hohhh pueh makan ngan crouton nyer skalik! And then dessert was sponsored by New Zealand ice cream. Macam2 flavour! om nom nom nom.
