Langkawi International Dialogue 2007

Salam guys,

Lama dah tak mengupdate blog aku ni. Yela office aku dah block benda-benda yang tak berkenaan kerja ni(betul ke tak berkenaan?). Just nak share pengalaman aku masa jadi LO masa LID 2007 kat Langkawi. I was at Langkawi from 2-9 August 07 and stayed at Perdana Beach Resort just beside the Langkawi Lagoon Resort. Of course almost all of the LOs didn't expect they will be staying at the 'hotel'. Takpelah benda kecik je. Lagipun there was no time for us to enjoy so much, balik dari assignment pun dah tengah malam. Letih bai. Lupalak, i was assigned to be the LO for the Prime Minister of St. Vincent and Grenadines (SGV). He arrived on the 5th of August together with 3 officers (one from Malaysia - cucu Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, his name is Tunku Muinuddin Putra). The PM is a nice gentleman with his Portugese look and from the his smile and the look of his face you wouldn't believe that he's already in his 60s. His charming personality (especially with ladies) is something to be envy. I was quite impressed with his way of approaching people, opps! woman i mean, he's a living example of a casanova!!!

The PM of SGV is a special invitee of Pak Lah and he flew 26 hours all over from the Carribean(1 night at Taipei) just to fulfil Pak Lah's invitation. What a gentleman. Nevertheless he came with a mission - to promote his country as one of the main tourist destination because they don't have any resources that can be traded (previously it was banana). They also want Malaysia to help them to build an international airport so that SGV can be easily accessible to the world.

8 days in Langkawi, tires and exhausted. Nevertheless again a good experience. Tapi balik2 je ada kontroversi pasal LO. Biaseletu, layan je lah. Adios, appreciate!!!

Depan Malaysia's official jet,masa ni TPM baru sampai.
