The "8th International Conference on Information and Multimedia Technology" organized by IACSIT (International Association of Computer and Information Technology) was held in Kuala Lumpour at Ambasaddor Hotel, 29-31 December 2016. The registration of the coference had started in the morning, but I light by Garuda to Kuala Lumpur in the evening, because there was so many activities. It was my first trip to Kuala Lumpur after the last one 7 years ago. I did not went to hotel Ambassador where I would stay by taxi, I rather went there by train from airport to KLCentral, and then I continued by taxi to the hotel. It was not as crowded as in Jakarta in the street at 9.00 p.m..
The conference was opened by the chair with many participants from several countries. One of the keynote speakers was Professor Chin-Chen Chang. I remembered that I had not completed my IEEE Senior Membership application, so I wished that one of them could sibmit the reference for the senior member application The conference were breaked for lunch at 12.00 for 90 minutes. The waiter said, “What do you want as a starter? How about seafood or a nice prawn cocktail, and then we have steak for main course”. I have not been eating meat for some years, so I ordered salmon or chicken steak. Fortunately there was salmon steak that I liked so much. A participant from India sat beside me and he said that he was a vegetarian, he ordered some vegeterian food. I wanted some straberries and cream for desert.
Early in the morning we had breakfast at the Mayflower Grande Hotel where we stayed for 4 nights. After having breakfast we webt to Kantary Hotel on foot, it was not far from our hotel just 10 minuteas walk. It was not easy to find the hotel, because when we asked to someone we met ialong the street, they could not speak English. Fortunately we met a woman who shew me the direction to the hotel. She can speak English because she had studied in New Zealand some years ago.
