I attended for the third consecutive year the ALLIANZ Franchise convention 2011 that was held in Bandung, Indonesia. Click HERE for last year's convention that was held in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. The all expenses paid by ALLIANZ saw 200 franchisee flew to Sabah in a few batches and the last group arrived at the Husein Sastranagar International Airport, Bandung on 26 May 2011.

Together in Bandung, Indonesia were PEDA Vice-President Abu Lais Walli Mohamed, PEDA Secetary-General Jeff Lim Si Heong and Vice-President (R) Razak Aziz. We were greeted and transported by 5 luxury coaches to the pre-booked Hotel Hyatt Regency, Bandung. An escapade, excursion cum work.........

(Click on picture to enlarge)

The streets were decorated with ALLIANZ BUNTINGS to welcome our group to the shopping heaven & sinful food fiesta.

The soonest the delegates arrived, they were pampered with FOOD...

Abu Lais Walli Mohamed..  never say no to food..

A hospitality Desk was prepared to distribute the ALLIANZ CONVENTION 2011 UNIFORM that was specially designed by SAZALI WAHAB, the Organising committee Chairman cum organiser.

The ladies proudly presenting the ALLIANZ CONVENTION 2011 OFFICIAL UNIFORM!!! For the first time, a badge was designed on ALLIANZ customary mandarin neck and long sleeve to prepare against Bandung's moody weather.

Spotted Tuan Haji Razak Aziz, PEDA VICE PRESIDENT (R).

The schedule was packed!!! Upon arrival, the delegates gathered at 3pm for a briefing and uniform distribution before proceeding with a high-tea function followed by dinner function at Bukit Pakar.

The restaurant too was conquered by ALLIANZ.. Allian buntings were splashed and display at every corner and along the whole street

Before we could smell and touch the yummilicious food prepared, we had to bear the opening speech by the German Chief Sales Officer Mr Horst Herman Habbig.

Horst did not bore us with a long winding speech but a straight to the point short and concise note which frankly says.. THANK YOU for the strongest support extended to ALLIANZ... Horst short but powerful speech made us all hungry for........ err food.

We were entertained by live-band!!

I was seated with Horst Habbit, Abu Lais Walli Mohamed, Razak Aziz, Jeff Lim Si Heong and Fahmy Abdullah.

The restaurant at Bukit Pakar bears a stupendous view of the town.


Part of the agenda, beside the endless seminars and talks was the SHOPPING TRIPS!!! We went out on a 5 buss convoy......

Our 'life' was saved by mother nature..... I cant imagine the 'damage' if there were no storm.. Due to the storm, the shopping-spree was interrupted. 

Even ALLIANZ Chief Executive Officer Zakri and Chief Sales Officer left empty handed without any shopping.. 

Now.. back to the classroom for more seminars and talk...


Special guest for the convention, ALLIANZ INTERNATIONAL youngest Chief Operation Officer Sean Wang Wee Keong.

Looking for a reliable car workshop is not an easy feat in Malaysia. Many car workshops are known for overcharging and providing poor quality parts.
Image via Auto World Remember the last time you were overcharged for a repair? Yeah, me too.
The good news is you don't have to fret anymore! Car Bengkel, a local app set up in collaboration with the Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI), aims to help motorists survive this ultimate road challenge.
