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.

3rd SGAM Treasure Hunt – December 11-12th, 2010

 The 3rd SGAM Treasure Hunt event started on an eventful and chirpy morning from the KL Bird Park in the Lake Gardens. Long before the early sunrise at 6.30am, 120 participants representing 30 teams from SGAM member organizations were already registering and collecting their goody bags and tulips. As soon as all were ready once the event organizers briefed them on the rules and regulations, the first car was flagged off by the Secretary of SGAM, Mr. Woo Yuen Seng.

 The convoy of cars then took off towards their scenic destination in the cool mountains of Cameron Highlands, eventually checking in at the Century Pines Hotel.

 Along the way, all participants ‘hunted’ for answers based on the tulips and clues provided. Promoted as a fun and family event, some teams were made up of family members who were a match for the other regular hunters. The 150km journey took them along the old trunk roads, reaching the finish station at Tapah just after lunch hours. After the mid-day meal, they continued up the winding road and checking into the Hotel in the evening.

 After a refreshing rest, participants were treated to a sumptuous dinner, followed by a presentation of the event where the hunters were caught candidly at various stops checking their clues and some even exchanging answers!

 Finally, it was time to announce the winners where Team Oracle Malaysia emerged Champions in their first ever participation of this event. Runners-up and third place was won by teams from IBM.

 All in all, participants thoroughly enjoyed the event which was a refreshing change to the hectic work in the capital. This event was made possible through platinum sponsors – IBM, Gold Sponsors – Silverlake and Oracle Malaysia.

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.
