    We had a Fun day today planting trees in a forest reserve in Universiti Malaya, called Rimba Ilmu.

     Put most of the Tree Planting activities on Blogger … just prefer how the pics are uploaded. Simpler.

     Here are some really rare samples of plants and trees and flowers found at Rimba Ilmu and the Conservatory. The Rafflesasia really looks cool huh?

    Below is a special Orchid, if you look at the base of the flower, you will see that it shapes like a shoe/sandal that a lady wears. Coooool huh!!

    Poem : MO’s Biba

    Filed under: DEETEE, MandarinOriental, Poem, Revenue — delephant @ 10:58 am

    This is another Classic Poem by Cheah when we were meeting at Mandarin Oriental’s Biba’s Cafe for our Revenue Manager’s Lunch.

    Read on ….

    Hey, hey, careful with the innuendos,
    The world is full of weirdos,
    This is as far as it goes,
    I’ve got a ring that shows,
    And fresh from honeymoon, your face still glows.

    Otherwise, people will say “Cor Blimey”,
    Those two must be good matey,
    Wonder if there is something fishy,
    or perhaps more to the story.

    So…… a simple lunch gathering it is,
    no bigger story than this,
    And stop all the rumours please,
    Just want a steak slap with grease,
    And other food I don’t wanna miss,
    Let MO’s Biba do the tease,
    And we will all feel at ease.

    For those expecting an Ang Pow,
    Don’t think I’m a cash cow,

    I give my red packets with a bow,
    But the stuff don’t go out now,
    The first 3 days of CNY is my vow,
    You must catch me before I “ciao”,
    That’s the only way to get my Ang Pow,
    If not, then how ?

    Filed under: Daren, DEETEE, MandarinOriental — delephant @ 1:51 am

    Hee hee … gonna have to betray wordpress again. Gonna use blogger for my upcoming trip to Macau and Hong Kong. 🙂

    I am really glad to work at the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur.

    This year our Management Retreat will be bringing us to the shores of Hong Kong. And we will also have the privilege to cross over to Macau for some fun Team Building exercises!!

    This will be a fun and exciting trip. Six of us are actually going one day earlier for a business trip and the others will join us a day later and we will start our time of bonding and fun”ning” (if there’s such a word) together-gether.

    We’ll be of course staying at the Mandarin Oriental Macau and in Hong Kong at one of the busiest intersections of Causeway Bay … at the Excelsior Hong Kong.

    We’ll be travelling this Wednesday (31 Jan) right up to Sunday (4 Feb).

    Hopefully I can get some internet connections .. and i hope my camera don’t die again. Hopefully can take some fun fun shots on this trip.

    Oh yeah.. who’s going? The Executive Committee and the Deparment Heads level A. I think there’s about 20 of us altogether. 🙂

    Check back sometime mid week .. hopefully the blog will be filled with PICS!! 🙂

    Should I take a Dopod 838 or Sony Dream System or Ipod & Bose Sound Dock?

    Filed under: Cool, Daren, DEETEE, MandarinOriental — delephant @ 8:24 am

    Its the best time of the year at Mandarin Oriental.

    Since I’ve joined the hotel, its always amazing how the hotel rewards the department heads at the end of the year with a Year End Gift.

    Its always a gadget of some kind, and this year its just the same. Previously, we never got a choice, each person just receives a present and YAY .. its always a good pressie for the year end.

    But starting two years ago, the management gave an option for us to choose.

    So now i am stuck in a dilemma, cos i have three fantastic gifts to choose from. HELP ME!

    What do you think i should go for?

    1. Dopod 838pro

    2. Ipod 80Gb + Bose Sound Dock

    3. Sony DVD Dream System (DAV FX900W) Home Theatre System

    What do you guys think? Help give some suggestions. I was asking Maju Family – Daniel the Gadgetier, and he’s proposing No.2. Any of u have any of the above and can give some pros & cons.

    1. Dopod 838 Pro

    Dopod 838 Pro

    2. Ipod 80GB and BOSE Sound Dock

    Bose Sound Dock (Ipod)

    3. Sony DVD Dream System (DAV FX900W)

    Mandarin Oriental KL Quadraple Certification from SIRIM

    Filed under: Daren, DEETEE, Hotel, MandarinOriental, News — delephant @ 1:57 pm

    YAY!! This is a cool recognition that our hotel received in today’s copy of the New Strait Times newspaper. Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur (MOKUL) recieved our quadraple certification from SIRIM for our Integrated Management System (IMS) for the following areas:

    • ISO 9001-Quality Management
    • ISO14001-Environment Management
    • OSHAS 18001-Occupational Safety and Health
    • MS1722-Part 1-Malaysian Standards in Safety & Health

    This was what that kept us so busy in the first quarter of this year. A group of us formed the MOKUL IMS Audit Team. I was heading the Audit Team and we had to audit the entire hotel ensuring that all areas in Quality, Environment and Safety & Health were all in place. It was a super busy period and I was glad that our internal audit was successful, which then lead on to the Sirim Audit … and thankfully we passed that too. 🙂 


    MANDARIN Oriental, Kuala Lumpur has attained re-certification with the National Certification Board of three international standards, ISO 9001-Quality Management, ISO14001-Environment Management and OSHAS 18001-Occupational Safety and Health recertification.

    It also attained an additional certification of MS1722-Part 1-Malaysian Standards in Safety & Health, which is considered a pioneering effort in Malaysia.

    Mandarin Oriental said in a statement this achievement of being the first and only hotel to attain triple certification within a 10-month period in international quality, environment, safety and health management has yielded marked improvements in systems and processes of the hotel’s operating systems.

    It has also given the hotel the leading edge as a preferred employer and venue for its corporate and leisure guests.

    “The hotel’s strength in ensuring a safe, secure and environmental-friendly operations has enhanced and complemented our quality services and products that our discerning guests have come to expect and appreciate,” it said.

    The international standards of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 have further driven home the need to be consistent in compliance with the quality standards of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and the recognised legal and other requirements of being a responsible corporation.

    “Through a series of structured programmes, practical processes and scheduled audits, we have positively ingrained the practice of ISO into our everyday operational practices,” said its general manager Jonas A. Schuermann.

    “This year, we have pushed ourselves even further for another certification MS 1722-Part 1:2005 as we believe the newly-launched Malaysian certification provides a system that further enhances the need to ensure the safety and health of our guests and employees,” he added.
