Business, business, business,...

In support of my wife's many businesses, on 15-16 May 2012, I was on location at UiTM Arau, Perlis, helping out with what ever that needed to be done. Transporting equipment, fetching flowers at 4am from Changloon bus station, sending spare change, organising the layout, putting up the tent, etc... and that's just starting the event. Closing is another story... which includes dismantling the tent, transport, cleaning up, arranging the store, etc.

Okay, enough talk, here's some pictures.
 Ribbons, ribbons, ribbons.... it looks even more grand in daylight.
 How the stall looks like from afar... the picture does not do it justice. Plus in the morning, all those racks were brought outside, so the location looks much larger.
 The Farming Association left some in a cage next to our stall.
 Alissa, making a small bouquet for her teacher for Teacher's Day.
 Yes, they are real... and purple too!
 I made these myself.... ?... don't believe me? The nerve... ;-)
These are real too, not plastic, but the colour is fake. These originally cream-coloured roses were put in blue-dyed water... and eventually the dye seeped into the petals.
 Rack of the artificial flowers and bears.
 A mugshot of me!
 "What? Can't a guy hold a bunch of flowers?"
 "That's it... buy, buy, buy!"
During the nights, my brother-in-law was game enough to stay back and perform Guard duties for the duration of the event. Thankfully he wanted to, otherwise I'd have to do it! >.<

Sorry, no day pictures... it was HECTIC! Too many people and not enough hands... besides, it also rained, so there was much scrambling around trying to keep everything dry.

"Where have you been Mr. Faisal?"

What happened? Oh my... I don't know, I guess real-life kinda blind-sided me and all of a sudden, too many things to do and too little time to do it in. Erm, not to say that I have plenty of time on my hands, but I guess I need to update this Blog once in a while...

So what's been happening? Can't describe them all in detail, but here's a list which I may follow up on in future posts... a preview of sorts in no particular order:

UiTM Convocation: No, I didn't graduate, nobody I know graduated, but there I was, on location in Arau, being the supportive husband (??!?).
 A BBQ session with the Assistant Principal... errr... me!
Outing with the business gang to Kuala Perlis. 
 Miss PROTON night and my DPP.
 Performing judging duties at SIPTIK 2012 during STML's Green Open Day.
 STML Grand Dinner.
 Excellent Service Award ceremony.
 AKJ night.
 Judging duties during the Survival Chef competition at DPP PROTON.
 Attending a wedding in Asun.
 DPP PROTON Grand Dinner night... "World of Cartoon".
 Went to pick up the wife, and this was what I saw...
 Snorkelling anyone? Family Retreat in Pulau Kapas, Terengganu.
 Performing Assistant Principal duties in Golden Flower Hotel, Bandung Indonesia.
 I never knew Bukit Bendera existed... until now!
 Presenting a research paper at the 3rd ICTOM in Bandung (yes, again).
