My First Trip To Hamburg


GSD’s Europe Zone Meeting was to be held at Hamburg this year. I did not miss my chance to attend it although it is between my project deployment weekends. I flew British Airways which my peers have mentioned to have quite a reputation on delays. The in flight service was very poor and I can understand why people love Malaysia Airlines.

Song Yia + Me

Song Yia picked me up from the airport yesterday and I was damn excited to see her after about a month apart. I took the chance in the morning to do some sight seeing before arriving at the zone meeting location in a hotel.

It was nice to see tons of colleagues from the Europe region and mapping the names to the faces. It was also a very good opportunity for me to expand my network. The meeting was very interesting with a lot of activities such as creating our master piece and also constructing IKEA furniture for a shelter home.

We also lighted up fireworks towards the end of the event and toasted champagne to a wonderful year 2007 was.


We soon had dinner at a restaurant which was walking distance away from the hotel. The food was glorious and very filling. I went for endless rounds and the beer made me full at the end.

There was Salsa dancing whereby the crowd took on the floor.
