I arrived at Kuala Lumpur at 4:56 am Japan Time which is 3:56 local time.

Since I had about 6 hours transit time, I went to the Lounge and stayed there about 4 hours and enjoyed eating and drinking.

Then I left Kuala Lumpur at 10:20 for my final destination, Dubai. After seven hours flight, I arrived at Dubai at 1pm  which is 6 pm in Japan.

Someone came to pick me up.  I checked in the hotel around 3:30pm.

At night there was a welcome dinner at a seafood restaurant. There were 11 participants in this tour.

It was raining in the morning but became fine in the afternoon.

When I got to the office there was a bag of souvenir from a professor who went to Kobe on a business trip yesterday. Since there was the PCM seminar of the second  day in the afternoon all of the staff from our office could taste a piece of the special Baumkuchen only sold at the mainshop at the tea time break.

After work I headed for the Narita Airport to leave for Kuala Lumpur. It's been so long since I went there last, maybe at the time of Sydney Olympic in 2000 when I went there for transit and met my friends.
This time my final destination is Dubai where I have wanted to visit for a long time. This is the first trip to the Middle East for me. And this is the first trip abroad with my new passport.

I am very looking forward to this whole trip.

It was cloudy in the morning, and rained in the afternoon.

In the morning we had an annual meeting and in the afternoon we had a PCM (Project Cycle Management) seminar. All of the staff of our office attended. We were divided into two groups when we had discussion. This measure is not only applied to the project improvement but also to daily life events or problems too. We thought of causes and results of the issue first, then goals and actions to solve them next.
It was an interesting workshop.

Since this is two-days program, we have the latter half tomorrow afternoon.
