ich ug meeting

The title sounds German, eh?

Less words and more pics this time. Ain’t got much time to write. Plus, many people to become my models today. Got to be fair to them ;-)

I’m away from office for three days beginning today, attending IATA Clearing House User Group Meeting at Westin Hotel. Some 250 delegates from all corners of the world are here for the event. Each IATA member (airlines, flight systems providers, aircraft maintenance operators etc.) sends two or three delegates to represent their company. Smaller members like Air Tanzania only send one. Malaysia Airlines sends about 15 of us. Thank you IATA for choosing KL as the venue. Had they decided to do it on Tanzania, we probably send only one delegate too.


That’s the meeting. By the way, the pen’s ink is green. Weird.


Listening to presentations. Serious stuffs.


Our morning tea break. Ayu specifically wanted me to tell you that the mousse is yummy.


Haven’t met Ayu? That’s her, my silent reader. Say hi!


Zahida of MASkargo and Chia of financial systems.


That lady really stood out in her Oktoberfest outfit. Those who visited her ISO booth got a heart-shaped gingerbread.


Me: Bernard, show off your gingerbread, I put your face in my blog!
Bernard: Aiyoo!!! *but still posed for the shot :-p*


All the way for Germany. Thank you ISO!


Souvenirs from SAP booth.


Lunch break! The guy was preparing my carbonara.


Jin Yee waiting for her turn to get her pasta done.


One of the best carbonara I ever tasted!


Jin Yee doesn’t like creamy stuff, so she opted for tomato sauce.


Clockwise: Mango mousse (in the small cup), chocolate pie (hidden by the huge chocolate peel deco that looks like a cinnamon stick), tiramisu with chocolate coating and cheese cake topped with strawberry and cream (can’t see it, can you?).


Evening tea break! Very spicy yet yummy pasta (they put cili padi in it *gawk*), tomato pizza and another round of mousse. This place is overloaded with mousse.

Just because you see lots of food pics, it doesn’t mean that all we do is eat. Obviously I can’t take too many pictures while the meeting is ongoing. Need to focus people!

Tomorrow’s session will require more input from the delegates. There’ll be several breakout sessions, during which we will discuss and squeeze our brains for ideas. With so many participants from different parts of the industry (and the world too), there must be many things to share.

Looking forward to that!

Maya Marisa said...

undeniably, the best part of attending courses and training is the spread of sumptuous food - betul tak?
u pun antu mousse jugak ker?? :D

Liza said...

it must be the time of the year where everyone goes for training, conference, workshop or whatever you want to call it. so made any observation on the attendees behaviour yet?

dieya said...

jeet,
eh ye laa ek.. tapi mmg sedap pun :-) the desserts tu tunggang terbalik sudah. puas i try susun nak bagi tegak tak jadi jugak.. haih!

k jaja,
hahaha macam buat food testing je kan! actually time meeting mmg tak keluar camera sgt coz byk benda penting nak kena dengar. karang sibuk amik gambar tak focus kat meeting, haru jek. nak cheese cake? meh meeting kat sini ek! bawak "cucu" sekali.. hihihi!

azrin,
owh you're going back to logistics! ala rin, ni pun i'm lucky that they have it in kl. alhamdulillah dapat la pegi. boleh kutip CPD points sekali ;-)

liza,
alalala ciannya dia.. sapa lagi nak bagi tokey DKK tu kaya kalau bukan u kan? cehhh i baru berangan wanna hang the gingerbread near my desk. kalau tiba2 ada kesan gigit i tau laa sapa punya angkara!

k lieya,
adeh rasa bersalah pulak menggoda selera org preggie.. sorry! no prob kalu k lieya dtg KL anytime dieya belanja. madam spy buyung punya pasal, bisa diatur :-D

maya,
agreed! the food was amazing! i memang suka mousse, but yesterday mmg overload dgn mousse laa. i think cukup dah tiga bulan punya kuota mousse kot!

k liza,
i guess so, it seems like everyone's attending some kind of conference/training this week. i've made some mental notes. will compile everything and put it up after the meeting ends tomorrow ;-)
