It must be WOW!” The situation was better now after the peak of the Corona Virus, so yesterday was my first field survey and I was shocked by what I’d seen before my eyes.Read More »
11 Aug 2017 MBKHave a good chance to visit here at MBK shopping mall for dealing with its priority parking. According to the topic, I met with a MBK’s Security Division Manager to highlight the issues in order to make it right as fast as possible.

Fortune Town has already installed elevator at the front of the mall enabled PWDs to get easier access to the metro train!!!

However, recently, I heard the news that it has been done completely. So I didn’t waste …Read More »
