Last night, the organizing chairman (Mr. Tiong) of the PWM Muhibbah Golf 2011 hosted a "Thank You" dinner at Thiam Hock Restaurant for members of the organizing committee for successfully hosting the tournament at Pantai Menteri Golf Club on 1st October 2011. Eleven members turned up for the dinner and an evaluation of the tournament was conducted. Overall the feedbacks were positive except for a few complaints from golfers who were turned away due to the overwhelming response! Due to a lack of buggies, the tournament was limited to only 80 golfers; there was also a suggestion to increase the number of participants to 100 for next year's tournament! Rain during the tournament also delayed the play off for almost an hour but that was outside everyone's control. Well done, Mr. Tiong (and his team) and thank you for the invitation!

Right after my BBQ at Muara Beach, I rushed over to Pusat Ehsan to support its 6th Charity Bazaar 2011 which was being held at its premises in Kg. Bengkurong. The weather was hot and a lack of parking spaces didn't help at all. I finally found a space by the side of the road which was quite a distance from the venue and as I was walking towards the centre, the Guest of Honour's motorcade was leaving the premises! I left at about 1.00pm and before leaving, I "purchased" two bags filled with packets of biscuits from Eng Hup Leong's stall with my leftover coupons. This ration will last me a week while I watched my favourite TV soap opera at night! See you all at the 7th Charity Bazaar 2012 where we (Traders Inn) intend to get a stall and do our bit for charity!

Happy Birthday, Vivienne!

I had quite a busy schedule this morning; at 9.30am I attended a colleague's birthday & BBQ (Happy Birthday, Vivienne!) at Muara Beach and after that I rushed off to Pusat Ehsan's 6th Charity Bazaar at Kg. Bengkurong at 11.00am. I haven't been to Muara Beach for quite awhile and the first thing I noticed was that the place was very well planned out with individual pavilions and paved walkways. Numbers on the pavilions also make searches easier for friends  who arrive later. Huge rubbish bins are provided at each pavilion and the park certainly looks clean. There's even a public toilet (I couldn't remember if there were any public toilets when I last visited many years ago!) and also tap water for the convenience of the public. It is advisable to go early to "grap" a pavilion as there are many people who goes to Muara Beach for a "family day" especially on Sundays!

The winners
Yesterday, PWM organized a "Muhibbah Golf Tournament 2011" at the Pantai Menteri Golf Club and I was assigned to cover this event by taking pictures and posting them on PWM's facebook profile. Golfers started arriving from 11.00am for the registration, score cards and goodie bags. A total of 79 golfers participated (there was one no-show) and many golfers were turned away due to the overwhelming response! Lunch was served at the club house before tee off at 1.00pm. As soon as the play off started, I left the club and came back at 5.30pm to cover the prize presentation and lucky draw. For more pictures, visit PWM's facebook profile or click here.
