ISO Workshop

The View from my hotel room
Some of the participants
Last week I was sent to KL with 3 other staff to attend a workshop on ISO at Hotel Seri Cempaka. We left the College on Monday around 8.30am. We were supposed to check into the hotel at 3pm but we had to go earlier because 2 other staff were assigned to send exam scripts to UiTM Jengka and Shah Alam. On the way to KL we had to detour to Jengka and our friend Rahman (one of the lecturers) was generous enough to treat us for breakfast. Thanks Rahman. We arrived at the hotel just a few minutes past 1pm. Since the first slot (a simple briefing to all participants) was scheduled for 4.30pm, Dilla and Ruzlina invited me to go "throw" some money at Jaya Jusco. I am not a shopper by nature but I ended buying a pair of sandals because they were on sale and are so comfortable to put on.

The schedule for the workshop was so tight. We were cooped up in a room from 8am to 10.30pm with a few breaks here and there! After 3 days of writing, reading, and editing the necessary produres, we were ready to hit the road back to Kuantan. The workshop was over around lunch time on Wednesday (18 Nov) but we couldn't leave until after 5pm! We had to wait for our accountant who was attending a meeting at our HQ. We had to do something or the waiting would be so unbearable [:)]. Ruzlina, Dilla, and I went to Tesco to "throw" some more money (which we didn't have! hahaha). I bought some locally made chocolates ( which were quite tasty) for my kids and 2 books: "Travelog Dakwah" by Prof. Kamil Ibrahim and the Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom.
