I have been to Kualalumpur only once. In fact I have been to Malaysia only once.
NIIT Annual Day
We were all part of NIIT Ltd at that point of time. Later our Software Division was created into a new company called NIIT Technologies Ltd. However, this was after I had left NIIT.
Journey by JAL
Our office got our Malaysian visas. We did not have to go to the Malaysian Embassy for the same.
We were booked on Japan Airlines Flight from Bangkok to Kualalumpur. Our flight started at around 11:00 PM. So, we reached Kualalumpur early next morning ( I would rather refer to it as very late in the night).
Stay at Shangri la
Our team of around 30 members (we could not take our families with us), checked into Shangri la. Our function was to be organised in the same hotel during the day.
We got some sleep. The next morning, I got ready and had a lovely breakfast.
Then we all assembled for the function at around 10:00 AM.
Awarded for Excellence
After all the speeches by the CxOs, we had some cultural events. From Thailand team, we played a skit. It was a big hit.
Then came the Award function. I received one the awards. It was for Excellence. It was a cash award of Bhat 2000 and a citation. I was very pleased.
The function finished at around 1:30 PM. Then we had lunch. This was the first time, I interacted directly with Mr. Rajendra Singh Pawar. It was a wonderful meeting. He spent about 10 minutes at our table during lunch. I got to ask one question about Customer handling and got a very good answer that I remember till date and practice it.
Roaming around in the City
After lunch, we set off on foot to see a bit of Kualalumpur. Our return flight was again late in the night at around 10:00 PM.
We had done some research and so we walked towards Minara Kualalumpur. It was rthe second highest building the Kualalumpur after the Petronas Tower.
We climbed on top of this tower. We got a beautiful view of the city of Kualalumpur.
After spending reasonably long at Minara Kualalumpur, we started walking towards Petronas Tower. Soon, we were at the spot.
The garden in front of Minara Kualalumpur.
We saw Petronas Tower from the road as we did not have time to climb up.
On the way to the Airport
By the time, we were finished at Petronas Tower, it was evening. So, we took a taxi back to the Airport. We crossed this beautiful building on the way.
The reached the Airport well in time to take our flight back to Bangkok.
