BIZ-zy But Fun Friday

I'm actually blogging from JB (how i ended up here? read on pls...). Anyway started my day at head office The Star building as i had to attend StarBiz-ICR Malaysia forum for company CEOs. Its basiaclly about 'reminding' the heads of their role on corporate responsibility laa.. moderated by the witty Dato' Johan Raslan (Chairman of ICR M'sia) who is the big boss of PWC. The panelists i must say were well represented ie we had Ms Rohana Rozan(Astro's CEO), Dato' Krishnan Tan Of IJM, Irene CEO of HSBC M'sia and Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar who needs no introduction lah..cut the story short...i'm glad i attended as it was an eye opener...

Ok enough with the boring stuff...so after the suit and tie event that finished around 12 i rushed home but not forgeting to get what my wife told me to buy from the hardware store the night before (see men do have good memory...err sometimes) so got home packed my stuff in my T-bag (a T-bag is a luggage carrier for biking) and put on my riding gear and off to JB at 2pm.

Got to JB at around 4:30 after stopping in Ayer Keroh and Machap (funny name eh!) for fuel. (yup normally bikers stop twice for a trip like KL to JB likewise KL to Penang) The lonely ride was good not too sunny but thank goodness the weather was kind. I was fetched by Abang Kadir (a JB HD biker) somewhere near Jalan Tebrau as he had to lead me to Hotel Mutiara where i'm staying tonite. Tommorow morning at 9:30 i'm heading back to KL with the JB HD bikers.

You see every year there is this event called Rock to Rock, where HD bikers (M'sians & S'poreans) ride from Hard Rock KL to Hard Rock S'pore (starting point alternates every year) and ride back the next day. So earlier this morning there would have been about 100 KL bikes that have travelled to S'pore. Tommorrow morning pulak both the 100 KL bikes and prolly another 100 S'pore bikes will be strutting their loud pipes to KL. So i will be trying to catch the wave if you know what i mean. I'm sure its gonna be a wicked sight! (200 bikes on the road can stretch to about 2 KM).

Stay tuned for pictures...
