Yesterday night was extra special because we went to a Tourism Malaysia event at the Al Faisaliah hotel. It was an opportunity to meet with a few other other Malaysians in Saudi and even from home.

With the main target audience being the local tour operators/agents, the event was officiated by our Deputy Tourism Minister Dato' Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who delivered a speech in english, alternating with an arab interpreter to get his message across. Amongst the attendees were the ever affable En Khalid of our Malaysian Embassy whom we met earlier, together with his colleagues: En Khairul, En Ismail and En Kamaruddin.

Adding to the Malaysian feel were musical performances from an impressively catchy 5-piece ghazal outfit and the uniquely refreshing Mohram duo.

All in all, it was a reasonably exciting occasion but the WOW-factor can definitely be improved.

However, I think I know what is the ultimate YUCK-factor....
