On board MAS new Airbus A380's inaugural flight to HK. Lots of perks. Free makan & refreshments pre boarding, free gifts and lots of fanfare. Upon arrival at Chek Lap Kok, plane was given a water salute by 2 fire engines; shooting jets of water. Ahmad Jauhari (MAS CEO) was on board as well.

The RICS Asia Valuation Conference was held in Singapore this year.
I took the opportunity to bring my wife for a short holiday at the Marina Bay Sands. It was a much needed rest and we truly enjoyed ourselves. The views from the 57th floor skypark were amazing. The room was superb (we were upgraded to premium room) and the food sinfully delicious.
I also enjoyed the conference as I was able to meet up with old and new acquaintances. I even managed to meet two former Uni-mates. My former lecturer (now Mayor of North West District & MP for Bukit Panjang Constituency) Dr. Daniel Teo Ho Pin was the Guest of Honour. Another former lecturer, Prof Yu Shi Ming was the Speaker on the Valuation of Green Commercial Properties.
This is what I truly love, mixing pleasure with business.
