Have you people ever think about where should you go for shopping and dining?? This always come to our mind everyday, and sometimes, it's really hard for us to think a place to go during our daily life especially on weekends and public holidays. Although when we think about a place, the second thing to concern is the expenses or it is worth or not for us to spent on that certain things. When you concern about all these thing, then you will don't know what to do during your free time or for those who just go for window shopping, you sure will feel bored and sleepy at the shopping mall.

*Don't know what to do during free time??

*Feel bored and sleepy during window shopping??

Now, you no need to think about all these concern because starting from beginning of this year, IVOQ concept has launched My Privilege Book to every consumer. My Privilege Book is created to provide consumers a smart guide to dining, retail, entertainment and services in Kuching while enjoying great savings at the same time.

The merchant which inside the My Privilege Book is always the best for me and my friend. For me, I always went to Happy Valley (just located opposite Crown Square), which is one of the merchant in My Privilege Book. Because many of my friends have purchase the book, we can always go there for dining although we used some of the voucher already. We can always share the discount voucher in a single resit. There's three parts at Happy Valley, two at the front and one at the back. For me and my friends, different parts is for different purposes.

*Happy Valley, one of my favourite dining place!!!

*This is what My Privilege Book offers you when you go Happy Valley!!!

For the front parts, there is left wing and right wing. We usually go left wing to dining and right wing for alcohol drinks because it's more expensive if you ordered alcohol drinks at the left wing. And for the table charge, everyone have to pay RM3 for a plate of tidbits if you're at the front parts. For us, we usually pay another RM1 and ask them to change the tidbits to French fries because it's more worth. Now, let me show you the left wing first where we always have our meals there.

*Nice Environment!!!

*The Interior~~

We always ordered the curry chicken rice of Happy Valley because it's delicious. And we will ordered Ribena Sprite if we didn't consume any alcohol drinks. Besides that, the BBQ meat such as BBQ Pork, BBQ Lamb and BBQ Beef is always our side dishes. Ya, don't forget French fries too!!!

So, that's all for the left wing. Now, I will show you the back parts of Happy Valley first because I got more to talk about the right wing where we always be at there. Normally, we go to the back parts when we just go for "Lim Teh". Sometimes, we celebrate friends birthday at there also. Or, my friend sometimes will have some rest at there because the environment there was quite and peace. If not, that's the place for us to continue to drink our beer if the front part closed already. Normally in that situation, we will stay at there until 3am something with the permission of "Tauke Nio".

*Celebrating Birthday!!!

*Happy Valley back part, a nice place to relax and rest!!!

Now, I will bring you to the right wing of the front part. At least one time a week, me and my friends sure will go there. For what leh?? Hahaha, sure for Heineken time lor!!! Besides that, we always celebrate friends birthday at there also. When we think about a place for celebrating birthday, that's the place that always be the first that pop into our mind.

Life at Sibu - Part 2

There is no much things can do in Sibu especially at night time because it's just a small town if compared with Kuching. In this post, I can show you where have I been when I was in Sibu besides than working at the PC Fair. First, I will show you the Sibu Gateway, this is the place where everyone can see when they are in Sibu. It just located at the center of Sibu. Beside it, you can also see a huge Swan Statue.

*The center point of Sibu~~ Sibu Gateway!!!

*The Swan Statue which beside the Sibu Gateway.

It's convenient for you to go from one place to another place when you're at the town area. Sometimes, walking still faster than using a transportation. At Sibu, I went to few markets of Sibu. One is called the Sibu Central Market which located at Channel Road. Another one is the Pasar Malam which located at Cross Road. Besides that, we cross by Sibu Ta Kiong Super Market also.

*This is the fresh market of Sibu. If i'm not mistaken, it should be called Sibu Central Market!!

*This is where the Pasar Malam, but it's just a parking place during day time.

*This is the Pasar Malam, I grab this photo from Google because I didn't went there at night.

*Ta Kiong Super Market

At the second day of the PC Fair, some of us went to Cross Road (where Pasar Malam located) to distribute the flyer. And I saw some Dalmation puppies for sales at the road side.

*The Dalmatian Puppies!!

*So cute!! Rite???

So, that's all for the daytime because we spent most of our time in the PC Fair. And now, I will show you some places we went to have our dinner which is Taman Selera Muhibbah and "Quan Jia Fook Seafood". Taman Selera Muhibbah is a place that just like our Kuching Open Air Market. There are lots of people who going there have dinner during the night time.

*Taman Selera Muhibbah

Next is "Quan Jia Fook Seafood". We went there during our last night at Sibu. And it just located near the place we live which is Oya Road. This is the place where our tauke bring us go and he ordered 6 dishes for us. Eight of us can't finish the dishes because it's too much. Including the drinks, it cost about RM160 only, so cheap!!!

*Quan Jia Fook Seafood"

*Everyone was so tired and hungry after the PC Fair!!!

*"Mani Cai" aka Cangkuk Manis

*Mix Vegetables with Sotong

*The "Ca Zhu" noodles, it cost RM5 only!!

*Yum Yum!!! It's Pork Leg, everyone's favourite~~

*Honey Fried Chicken

*"Nan Lu" Pork Ribs

*We try our best to finish it already but yet still can't!!!

Besides than eat, we also play Dota when we're at Sibu. We went to T One Cyber which located near the Rejang Specialist. That is the only cyber that we can found which opened 24 hours, the others all closed before 12am. The computers inside it was all in good condition, and the price is just Rm1.50 per hour, still cheaper than some cyber in Kuching.

*T ONE Cyber

*There are web cam and mic for every PC.

*Dotaing!! We play until 3am something for two nights.

So, this is our life at Sibu. Working, Eat, Play and Sleep, nothing much. There is no time for us to really go walk around Sibu Town because our time is limited as PC Fair start from 11am to 9 pm. If next time still got chance to go Sibu (although I don't really wish to go there anymore because of boredom), I will try to go more places and try more Sibu delicacies.

Sibu PIKOM PC Fair

The Sibu PIKOM PC Fair was on 18th - 20th April 2008 at Sibu Trade and Exhibition Centre. We are there to promoting the Celcom Broadband and the USB Modem. The day before the PC Fair start, we went there to survey our booth, the place there was not bigger as Kuching PC Fair, the car park can only fit less than 100 cars. After we saw this situation, all of us were so worried because it's hard for us to reach our targets in such situation.

*Sibu Trade & Exhibition Centre

*Huge Banner!!!

*The hall and the booth was so small!!!

On the actual day of the PC Fair, we reach there at about 10am. The fair starts at 11am, after we get the pass from the organizer, we went to the food court beside the trade centre to have our breakfast first. But there's not much to eat, what they have is "Kampua" only, and the worst is the "Kampua" is cooked halal and it's cooked by Ah Gua some more.

*No people is allowed to go in the Hall with this tag before 11am.

*Halah "Kampua" cooked by Ah Gua!!!

During the 1st and 2nd day of the PC Fair, there are not much people went to the fair. All of us was quite concern about it because it's impossible for us to reach our targets in such situation. Our targets is 100 customers, but we only manage to get 17 customers on the first 2 days.

*The opposite of "People Moutain people Sea"!! SWT"

*It's not that we wan to catch snake, but there no customers for us to serve!!!

On the last day of the PC Fair, luckily there is more and more people coming to the fair. We manage to get about 40 customers to register the Celcom Broadband in 1 days. This makes us reach half of our targets which is 50+ customers in this fair. And we're quite satisfied with this result in this kind of situation.

We close our booth at about 10.00pm although the Fair ends at 9pm because there is many people who come at the last minutes.

*End of the PC Fair, the place was so messy!!!

*Yeah!! Our job is done~~

*Celcom: "The POWER is in your hand"!!!

*Say bye bye to Sibu PIKOM PC Fair!!!

Finally, the PC Fair has come to the end, and this is also our last night at Sibu. We're going back to Kuching on the next day afternoon.
