The convoy of cars then took off towards the sea side resort of Swiss Garden Golf & SPA Resort , Damai Laut in Lumut.

Along the long journey, all participants “hunted” for answers based on the tulips and clues provided along the various towns.  The 250km journey took participants along the old trunk roads, reaching the final station at the Resort after approximately 6-8 hours, in the late afternoon.

After a refreshing rest, participants were treated to a sumptuous sea food dinner at the sea fronting restaurant, followed by a presentation by the event organizer, showing the participants photographed candidly at various stops in action.   

Finally, it was time to announce the winners where Team - Just 4 Fun from HSBC emerged Champion followed by runners-up Team - Fun Hunters also from HSBC and third place Team - EPFIT from EPF.  The night ended with a karaoke session for those who still had the energy to sing along.

Based on feedbacks, participants thoroughly enjoyed themselves during this week-end event,  to be away from their busy work schedule.

We would like to convey our appreciation to our Platinum Sponsor (IBM Malaysia) and Gold Sponsors (Silverlake Systems, Verity Solutions/Sourcefire and Basis Bay) for their sponsorship and support, making this event possible.

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.
