2008-01 Pasadena


We had our international sales meeting in Pasadena, with an "A-List" party theme. I decided that "trashy + handcuffs" could work for a few celebs, but ostensibly I went as Lindsay Lohan.

2008-02 Hong Kong and Singapore


In February, I spent a week in Hong Kong doing presentations and trainings, then over the weekend headed to Singapore and spent the next couple of days there for more meetings. I rented a road bike for the weekend and rode around Singapore and across the border to Malaysia. This was the first time that I have ridden a bicycle across an international border.

10 - Bike in Malaysia (Johor Bahru)108 viewsI decided to ride the bike across the Causeway from Singapore to Malaysia. It wasn't clear from the signs which lane I was supposed to take (they had one for buses, one for motorcycles which went on the expressway, and one for cars), so I decided to go through the building with the pedestrians. After navigating lots of stairs and a vertical turnstile, I got pulled aside by the authorities. Apparently I was not allowed to go that way, and was supposed to have gone with the motorcycles. They debated my situation for a while, as I waited nervously. Finally, they allowed me through, and escorted me back out of the building to the motorcycle lane. I didn't spend much time in Malaysia, and also had a bit of trouble getting back into Singapore.
