the tee off time at 2.00pm, a misunderstanding between the club official time and printed scorecard time, the tournament proceeded smoothly.  This was aided by the fine weather which held up till the end of the tournament when it turns foul.   Anyway, all the participants thoroughly enjoyed the social networking and competition during the tournament, with prize giving and dinner concluding an eventful and enjoyable day.

This interesting study tour to i-City and High Performance Data Centre (HDC) was well attended by 67 people on the evening of March 4,2011.

Datuk Eu Hong Chew, CEO of i-City, graciously updated us on the vision and master plan development of i-City, illustrating the key differences from Cyberjaya and also the creation of an alternative successful Technopreneur Centre with many happenings, to attract knowledge workers there.

It was followed by a visit to the highly secured HDC hosting facility to observe
their Maxis Cloud Computing and hosting service in action. This was made possible with the authorization from the Management Team of HDC, a world class data centre infrastructure management service provider.

The impressive visit ended with a sumptuous steamboat dinner and Snowalk, the coolest hot spot in town, sponsored by HDC and i-City. Those participants who had time after that enjoyed strolling around the vicinity which was flooded with colorful LED digital lights. In summary, it was a visit well worth the time.

This year’s annual SGAM Bowling tournament was held at Pyramid Bowl, Sunway on 13 Nov 2010 and saw full participation of 48 teams. The 192 bowlers created a 'red army' of sorts as they were decked in striking red T-shirts which were provided for the event to all bowlers.

Breakfast was served before the event and competition was keen from the first roll-off with some fancied teams being neck-and-neck in their battles. There were 'high fives' throughout for strikes and spares along with familiar shouts for the misses and open frames.

It was also a family affair, as children came along with their parents and some managed to show their skills, but most of  them still have lots to catch up.

Unknowingly, SGAM bowlers showed their true colors that can be a match for our national bowlers. Pinfalls exceeding 200 were recorded by 9 men bowlers, the highest being 235 pins. Why they were not playing at the Asian Games is a big question.

The ladies were not far behind, recording a high score of 191 pins.

At the end of 3 games, the fancied teams pocketed the prizes, of which there was plenty to give away. Following the prize giving, lunch was served to all participants before calling it a day.

All in all, it was a memorable morning where everyone got to know each other better and look forward to next year's event. There were the usual networking sessions, and business card exchanges were noticed.

List of prize winners:

Team Competition (for Sunway Challenge Trophy):

Champions -  AIA Bhd - 2068 pins

This year’s Annual Conference was a huge success. It was held again at the Genting International  Convention Centre in Genting Highlands from October 6-7, 2009. Our theme for this year is “Adopting Innovative ICT Through Turbulent Times”.

The ICT industry had gone through turbulent times in the past year in view of the global recession impacting all sectors of the economy locally and globally. The oil crisis had been the catalyst and its consequences spiraled  across all sectors and borders. Organizations as well as countries suffered as victims of the above. Industries, including the ICT sector had to backtrack and various counter-measures put in place to address worsening implications.

Hence, it is timely for us to adopt innovative ICT through these turbulent times to preserve and persevere with development and sustainment in order to contribute to Malaysia's economy as part of  our nation-building process.

A record turnout of 460 delegates, speakers and exhibitors attended the event.

This also being our 20th year anniversary, makes it a joyous occasion as we bring together our past Chairmen of SGAM in this conference. We also achieved our record attendance for our conference and overall, this has been a very successful conference for us”.

Dr. Frank Soltis - the pioneer of AS400 systems charted the way forward on Power Systems; Today and Tomorrow.

Joey Yay - the renowned Feng Shui Master led the delegates into an insight on what was expected between IT and Feng Shui for 2010. His presentation had the audience instiches throughout, lifting the gloom from the turbulent economy.

‘Citizen Nades’ – Mr. R. Nadeswaran, Editor, Special Reporting & Investigations of ‘The Sun’ made his appearance on Day 2 of the Conference and shared with us on The Untold Story pertaining to the PKFTZ;

KC See, CEO Quest Group presented his paper that interacted well with the audience.

A panel discussion among them was conducted, providing delegates with memories on how SGAM was initially formed as well as providing thoughts on how SGAM should progressed into the future.
