I’d been to Kuala Lumpur once before. However, this time I was going to Malaysia on the invitation of the Prime Minister – who I wasn’t able to meet – and the Deputy Prime Minister – who generously had dinner with me. Getting to mix with Malaysia’s political and cultural elite at various ceremonies and events is one of the unforgettable highlights of my career so far. However, in truth, I was much more comfortable slumming it at KL’s markets, mosques and monuments with the ordinary people.
Oh, and yeh, obviously I found myself some Indian food and a mosque. It’s Malaysia!
