Its almost the end of January of 2008. My my my - time really flies. Its hard to remember if its yesterday or last week or what just happened a few minutes ago. The kick off started when I recieved all those instructions in my In Tray after returning from holiday in Mid January. I have to say I am almost out of breath by now. Kicking off my travelling schedules - attending meetings, inspecting the Ninth Malaysia Plan projects and programmes, hitting the road, water or sky, whatever needs doing in the name of delivering development for the State. Coming from headquarters I discover I need to be very conversant with what is happening in the State especially for meetings where you represent Sarawak.

TP King can also be bestowed with being a Flyover Specialist. When you think the Kenyalang Exchange in Kuching is all there is, those in Miri recently saw two flyovers launched last year. I managed to expereince the two last week while travelling in Miri - As I have not been to Miri for two years so I can see and feel the change that takes place here.

Our function in Labuan last week was held at the Waterfront Financial Hotel. Its the second time I have been to Labuan after 20 years plus. Last time it was during my undergraduate years and I was using the express from Kota Kinabalu to Limbang (transiting in Labuan).
It can be said that I was almost cut off from the Internet if it had not been for my 3G/GPRS which enabled me to check my incoming emails in my handphone. The Waterfront Financial Hotel had Hotspot so I was connected throuhout the meeting as I had a Hotspot Account,. Statying at Regency Dorsett, the Internet Connection was damn expensive.
