Inside the Sultan Ahmad Shah International Convention Centre

I spent a good half hour exploring the Sultan Ahmad Shah International Convention Centre (SASICC) the other day. It was deserted apart from me and my Panasonic Lumix DMC-F2, and the occasional footsteps of a hotel worker in a black suit passing by. The SASICC is starting to look very grand, as you'll see through these photos:

Rows of windows disappear into the distance at the ballroom level of the SASICC

Greenery lines the walls in between entrances

Entrance to the Cashmere ballroom at the SASICC

Seating area outside the ballrooms

Down one floor is the Platinum level including secluded areas for resting, and viewing of the exhibition halls which lie below

Platinum 1

View from Platinum 1 as the Zenith Hotel flag flaps in the wind

A tassel hangs from the arm of a chair in Platinum 1, SASICC

Platinum 2 contains table and leather-backed chairs...

...along with some other more unconventional ones

It appears that the Media level has not yet seen any action
