I can see this launch is the cheapest price to get in Malaysia as compare to get from foreign country such as Hong Kong and Singapore. Although the launch is late a bit but yet still the hot will not stop at here. It should be quite as hot as iPhone 4 as new version of iOS 4.2.1 is giving a new life to iPad which giving nearly same functionality as iPhone 4.
I want to check the price on accessories later to see how cheap they can offer.. Apple fans, rejoice the fun !!

Last Thursday there is another new shopping complex just open in Penang, which is name 1st (First) Avenue. Currently there is one hyperstore have join the business which is Parkson. This shopping complex which were told will have a lots of branding shop will join in. A cinema and a karaoke box also will be launching soon. This complex is just located opposite Prangin Mall, Komtar and traders hotel.
I also been informed on the first day it packed with a lots of people and everyone just wan to taste the new environment. The parking is located on from 5th to 8th floor and
it’s gonna be hectic for driver…
Update 1 : The parking concept in 5th to 7th is actually awesome. Everyone park inside there and meet on the escalator zone, then everyone can see each other on each floor, which is very nice if someone is lost , just meet at the zone and no need feel lost.
There will be a new Cinema, named Tanjung Golden Village .

Last Saturday I have a great fun on attending a company department dinner which is theme on Hollywood Night Dinner in Traders Hotel. Everyone will try to wear something that usually as a hollywood star will do during a premier, or attending some occasion. I just wearing a western suit without a tie, just very casual. Once I have arrive, the ladies are just like glamorous style, some guys are acting as Wolfwerine, Matrix, Captain etc. My colleague have act as superman and he got the best male dress that night.
The event start around 7.15pm with some speech from director and we have our dinner start. There are few performance show will be performed by each department and we are totally enjoy it. First show is a ballade dancing, followed by a singing and much more.
During the dinner, the MCs also ask everyone to take part the event by giving some table games. First table games is to find the pictures based from each story line given in each table. Everyone just rushed from one place to another place to find who has the others pictures and exchange it. I got conned by a lady who has snatch my picture and she doesn’t want to exchange with her pictures. Anyway it just a game so I won’t care on this.
Next table game is to listen the sound from some movie clips and name the movie name. Most of us are able to understand but we did not get any prize. What we are truely happy is the Lucky Draw event where some of my teammates have got some prizes. The best one in my team was he got an iPod Touch 8GB lastest generation. Kudos to him .
Dinner was ended with the last lucky draw @ 1130 PM which is a 42″LCD on Panasonic which won by one of the committee member. Congrats to him and hope he have a wonderful viewing pleasure to enjoy the LCD TV.
