A Famosa, Melaka
I was asked to attend a "Train the Trainers" course at A Famosa, Melaka. For an early start tomorrow morning, we were asked to travel down there today. The traffic going down was surprisingly light considering today is the last day of school holidays. It took me just under 1 and a half hour between leaving my Mum's house in KL and actually rolling my luggage into my room.
I spend yesterday reeling about coming. I really was not keen. Hopefully, the easy journey down here signaled a good start. I was told, the course is basically about epidemiology. The attendees will be asked to teach the Medical Students in the coming few month concerning the matter. The lectures will be conducted by speakers from the Julius Center in Utrecht, Netherlands.
Checking in was smooth. I sort of like remember the place from my trip back in 2006 with the family where we rented a bungalow in the compound. That was the first real outing with Irfan. He first learned to walk here. There was also a swimming pool at the bungalow. That's where Irfan had his first outing at the pool. He has been addicted ever since.
For dinner, I walked round the block at the main reception building. That will also be the place where I will have the lectures tomorrow. The buffet restaurant is called Golfer's Terrace. The spread was pretty basic. I had some salad and spaghetti. Was rather tired anyway.
The hotel room was also pretty basic. I have a queen-sized bed. There is no wi-fi, but luckily I got my E71 hooked up to Celcom HSDPA. The were only basic TV channels. I thought I will have some coffee before bed.
