My husband and I are off to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with the British Malaysian Business delegation organised by Ms Lai Mei Sim.
Arrived on schedule in Kuala Lumpur and checked in at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, a 5 star luxury hotel. Pulled the right strings with
Martin Barrow who managed to get the delegates a special corporate rate. It is always good to have a taste of how the other half lives.
It gives a push to having a reason to succeed.
The few days in Kuala Lumpur with the delegates were exhaustingly positive. Loads of contacts were made at a very high level. Not to
mention being wined and dined at certain special events.
In Kuala Lumpur we managed to touch base with relatives and friends. Especially the 20 strong Victoria Institution alumni of my husband
who hosted a sea food 10 course dinner with us. Many thanks to Khoo Khee Ming, Khoo Suat Pheng and Ho Kah Phoong et al.

A short stay in Singapore from Kuala Lumpur was a must. visited the famous Marina Bay Hotel. We had tea over looking the infinity
pool with beautifully executed morsel and eastern food with a twist. The four seasons hotel was just a stones throw from our hotel so we
we had a look of the splendour of this group of hotels
