My Home Internet

I just bought new phone number from the 013 qb CUBE. Now I can connect my home PC to internet via my phone and qb CUBE service (It’s free for a month for Internet). And only Phone that has 3G can use this new phone service in Cambodia.

In their promotion, the internet was 7 times faster that other, but after my usage, it was 7 times lower than other (I also use mfone 099 to connect may PC to internet via my Phone, it faster than qb CUBE. It’s not free- 1 hour/2$). Hmm…may be when qb CUBE charge, it can be faster than.

Staff Retreat – Sihanoukville

Last week, I was at Sihanoukville for Open Institute’s 2008 staff retreat. The retreat started from 4th to 8th May 2008 with 29 staffs. We all stayed at Queen Hill Resort, 4 Km from Tor Pie (2 Lions), its kind of isolated place and quiet so that it good for us for staff meeting. The staff meeting took 2 days and half and a day and half for staff fun time. On Friday evening we had BBQ on the the beach. I can’t joint this such great event coz I’m leaving to Phnom Penh since afternoon with other four colleagues to celebrate woman’s day with family.

This retreat went quiet well, I hope that 2009’s staff retreat I will not missed the staff fun time again.
