Guinness Stout

Today at the meeting, we were taught about AHA - Attitude, Humour and Action. After going through the session, I realised that I was just an AH, missing the last A. I guess I do have to put some Action in my life. I just told JC the other day that I couldn't believe that I've been "bumming" around for 9 years. Well, I did start in the industry because I wanted an improved quality of life, one that allowed me to spend time with my parents, to have a business of my own but yet enabling me to take time off for travel whenever I want. Life is good. However, it looks like I have to stop bumming around to reach my full potential. The thing is, I have never been one that is driven by money but by the smaller things in life. Eg. I love the fact that I get to bring my mom out to the malls on weekdays (which means lots of available parking!), having lunches with no time constraints. So, maybe I will just work a wee bit harder! He he.....

I just took Mom to Chynna in KL Hilton this Monday for dinner and she really enjoyed the outing. I was happy that she was happy. That look on her face and feeling, priceless. Err...I'm not talking about Mastercard's priceless but really, you know what I mean. Want to try Chynna's dim sum next. Loved the food, loved the ambience, loved the price (I got 50% discount as I am a member of both PJ and KL Hilton). Let me know if any of you want to join, I'll get the staff to contact you. Candy, the staff, told me that she'll buy me a meal! Ha ha.....

I've come a long way since then and the only thing that I'm sad about as far as this 9 year journey is concerned is that Dad isn't around to see exactly how far I've gone. I still remember his favourite two words to me when he asked me to do certain things which I wasn't keen on, things like doing homework, taking medicine etc. etc. !!! He would just say "Guinness Stout!" and that would make me smile without fail. That's because one of Guinness Stout's taglines is "Good For You". He was quite a joker and I guess that's where I got my humour from. Thanks Dad! Dad, I wish you are around now so that I can take you and mom out to eat. Afterall, you were the one who started me off with this long and undying love affair that I have with food now! I wish you are around now so that we can go karaoke and belt out all those favourite tunes of yours. Dad, I just wish that you are still around. Period.

Read from your link that no matter how many ppl dine, one person shall eat free if you have the Hilton membership card, is it true?

Yes! Including you in the party, 2 would get 50%, 5 would get 20%. You do the maths.
