I am an engineering leader, a chess enthusiast and an avid reader. I have moved as a software engineer inUSA from my home country Bangladesh at 2005 leaving many of my family members, relatives, friends and good memories. In this journal I want to capture how are my days going here in this migrated place with my wife, son and daughter.

Habib's Concert in Sunnyvale
Saturday 16th May 2007, we attended an excellent concert of Habib accompanied by his father Ferdous Wahid and Milia Sabed in Sunnyvale Convention Center. So many Bangladeshi people gathered together. As far as I know, 600+ tickets were sold of $35, $50 and $100 each. My previous idea was probably around 2000 Bangladeshi lives in San Francisco Bay Area. But now after talking to many people, I got feedback that around 6000 to 7000 is the most probably number. I hardly can remember anyone I know who missed this event. We enjoyed it so much.
Habib really does sound engineering as he claimed, and its of a different sort to classify. Ahyan got very used to the noise after his recent A R Rahman's concert experience. People of all ages were dancing from near the seat or close to the stage. Although Habib's full team couldn't come, he made an excellent show by picking all his good songs.
