Yeah, it was such a last minute thing. My office wanted to sent 4 people (2 seniors including myself, a manager and a partner) to Melbourne for a conference on superannuation funds (in Malaysia, it's EPF). One person couldn't make it. So I was asked to go, since I do a fair bit of super fund audits. Get to stay two nights at The Westin. Individual rooms.
Knowing me... the first thing I thought about was how this would affect my training... and those sweet stuff they serve at conferences plus the grand dinners and late night drinks. So I checked the hotel website and found under 'activities' there was a runner's map, recommended by Runner's World magazine. The route is 3.8k. Hope I won't be too wasted at night to wake up the next morning for a run (I intend to do the loop twice). The weather is forecasted to rain this week. But it seems warmer than Perth, minimum of 15 degrees while we're having 7 degrees over here!
Okay, leaving for airport in a few minutes time. Just found out I didn't bring enough formal wear as I didn't expect us to have a dinner (I guess I just have to improvise) and I forgotten my phone charger. Hope I can still contact Li-Ann when I arrive back at Perth.
Oh yeah, my high school friend Su En was here for visit. She had a birthday yesterday (another May baby). Sang birthday song with sparklers and an awesome cake by the lake at East Perth condominiums. Have a safe trip back this Thursday, Su En!
