PATCHAY.COM finds out this week that 3 of the Biggest Names in the Internet world have finally, officially landed on our shores!
Last month, Google opened its 2nd Southeast Asian office at the Petronas Twin Towers. For now, the Google Malaysia office will focus in business development and marketing of local content of its web services.
Next time, I just can't imagine people shouting at me: "Open up, quickly open up the Google Rojak web browser!"
Next, the world's largest online payment company PayPal will open its 2nd operations hub in Asia in the suburban Bandar Utama just outside of Kuala Lumpur.
The eBay company plans to hire over 300
ah longs employees for its new customer support centre.
Meanwhile, global phenomenal Facebook Inc has "secretly" began operations in suburban Damansara Perdana just next to Bandar Utama.
Perhaps, this comes after Facebook's acquisition of Octazen, a Malaysian-based company with 2 owners. The new Malaysian office has also been confirmed on Facebook press website.
Amongst global software companies that already have presence here include Microsoft, Oracle, SAP and Symantec.
On a smaller scale, Apple Inc and McAfee also have offices in Kuala Lumpur.
Definitely I won't be surprise to see Skype, Twitter, Foursquare and Research In Motion next...
