Valentine at EL Cerdo KL

Celebreate delayed Valentine with my wife because she is outstation during 14th Feb , Remembr last time Tony share with us a Pork related Restaurant in Changkat Bukit

Specializing in pork dishes from around the world,

"El Cerdo", meaning "The Pig" in Spanish, is a restaurant dedicated to porcine delights.

At first they recommend the famous sucking pig but that portion is too big and both of us wanted to try other kind of food as well the 'chun' waitters recommend us on these appetizer Boquerones and the Marinated Pork Shoulder steak together..(sorry i just too hungry without waiting for my wife i already raid the food...haahahah Look small portion...:)


Boquerones if my memory still serve me is bacons were stuffed with white wine marinated anchovies and fried in olive oil. The bacon was crunchy and the delicately flavoured anchovies complements beautifully...I couldnt ask for more. The salad and onion rings were good, but the bacon rolls were definitely the worth for recommendation to friends.


Of cause we have to try some of their house draft...very fine...even better then carlberg draft as well...:)


Below are the desert & a shoot wine offer by the restaurant for us to tast it , noone should ever miss it because it is too good to be true to take aiskrim + wine..:)

can't miss it.. i forgot the name of the aiskrim ..it is mix-fruit + aiskrim + xxxx...:)


It just Simply Porkielicious!

- The dishes are so delicious, you'll be back for MORE !

Check out their url http://www.elcerdokl.com/ .. I just found out that they offer Kid Menu as what Chili do as well...<6 year is all free of charge...:)

Which ITIL framework to start first ?

Although alot of according might think of starting to buy off the shelve ITIL solution and implement in from top to bottom, Personally i would suggest to go from according to priority

1) Incident Management
2) Service Level Management
3) Configuration Management
4) Availability Management
5) Change Management
and so on.

Obviously that top 2 is the one which we can see impact immediately either from our customer , end user and business executive.

But if we are able to handle incident management , immediately pay back will be gain if it is implement throughly. Because customer is able to see progress , result after the implementation compare with previous IT structure where effect is not being able to show at least half and 1 year.

What make a IT department / IT company success ? Customer complaint ? Nope it is complement from customer and confidence given to customer as well. With that we are able to build a royal & longer relationship with customer.

In a critical situation happen recently in US(2008) Bank corrupted/merge , Car Maker going to shutdown from 4 to x... It Getting a new business or maintainly existing customer is really tough , Hence as a Service Delivery Center if we are able to build a good relationship with customer , i believe that confidence & reliable can really win back when contract signed instead of 'repackage' another cheaper solution to customer . We are able to help customer to maintain their system in more uptime.

It just my though of ITIL , a proper incident managment will make sense on this.

Tire to bring a book around ? Why not try Kindle 2 ?

Recently when crawl around amazon for bb thing , found out a tools which newly lunch by Amazon.com

Kindle2 -> the next generation wireless reading device. With a sleek and thin design that makes Kindle 2 as thin as a typical magazine and lighter than a paperpack, the new Kindle has seven times more storage and now holds over 1,500 books. It has a longer battery life and faster page turns. An advanced display provides even crisper images and clearer text for an improved book-like reading experience. And Kindle 2 even reads to you, with “Read to Me”, our new Text to Speech feature.

Best word is

"the convenience of reading what you want, when you want it,

With Amazon support of over 230,000 ebooks available online , just a click and it will download automatic into the gadgets.

It also favor for book Author..Lightweight at 10.2 ounces , Wireless 3g no monthly fess ..but i wonder whether it work in Malaysia (A land of anything also neeed $$$).Longer battery life (read for days without recharging).Low Book Prices...not bad ...

Now it under pre-order starting from today with $359US , with that price i might able to buy a lower end notebook but who want a notebook if they just want to take the book..I believe all traveler will think the same..a book to accompany but not a notebook to accompany..:)
