dum... dum...daa dummm... Our wedding ceremony!!!

Watch some of our wedding pictures here...

Wedding pictures taken at a studio - France Taipei. Real bad scanning but here are some of the pictures.

Today was a public holiday in Selangor - we went to do my Japanese visa. Being a husband to a Japanese national, it allows me to obtain a holiday visa easily. All I needed was -

.. photocopy of my wife's passport
.. an invitation letter from her
.. a passport size picture
.. a photocopy of our wedding certificate.

it would be ready in two working days.
Almost the end of the year - boy, time passes by so fast. A little update -
work is less challenging at this moment - I wish I had 'more' to do - I feel redundant but I am not complaining. I think I am needed in Penang again. Oh, the flight ban thingy have been lifted.
... Masako is fine but having morning sickness and losing appetite.
... Watched Harry Potter - The soceror's stone - my conclusion : the book's much better - read the book.
... Getting our wedding pictures taken - 06.12.2001
... More of a private wedding dinner will be held on the 14.12.2001
... Will be going to Japan on the 28.12.2001 - with my brother and his wife.

We went window shopping (baby stuff) but end up buying a couple of baby stuff. Still too early but too hard to resist.

An update on my favourite web site - http://www.mckinseyquarterly.com - good web site on economic, technology, management, etc. Well it is my favourite site at this moment in time.

We also went to Jurong Bird Park. huhuhuhu.... nice place.


Kobasan arrived Fukuoka safely. Me and Masako are planning on a trip to Cambodia to visit the Angkor Wat.
A good information on Cambodia can be found here -- http://www.cambodia-hotels.com/basic.htm
I have been dreaming of visiting these ancient city.

We took Masako's friends from Fukuoka who were here on a back packing tour around Malaysia for dinner. It was fun. I remember of my backpacking days when I was in Australia. The backpacking hotels here charge RM25.00 for a two bed room -- showers are down the hall way.

Fuji Xerox in Penang...

Me and Masako was at Penang for a week. I was there on a work related mission - Intel Electronics. We spent most of the days in Intel Penang and Intel Kulim while Masako went shopping and sightseeing with my cousin.

Masako standing in front of E & O hotel - Penang's oldest hotel. I remember growing up beside this hotel.

Inside E & O hotel... spectacularly beautiful inside this newly furnished hotel. Even the elevators were the gate type. A must place to visit.

Malaysia's oldest hotel - built in 1885.
