I’m in Malaysia at the moment. A short trip where I’ve been asked to present at a marketing conference. I’ve been working on my presentation for weeks: ‘effective creative development for direct marketing campaigns’ – luckily I have to talk on the creative development, and not the data base or statistical side of things.
I was out wandering around Kuala Lumpur today and found, surprise, surprise, a bead shop selling gemstones, So I bought five strands, including one of pearls, all for $50AU.
I also found my fave hair product (a.k.a. hair controller) for half the price at home. I went back after the initial visit and bought more.
So I got here this morning, went to breakfast (noodles with chicken and bead curd, dahl and Indian bread), went shopping, had a sleep, went to Chinatown, bought gemstones, had lunch at a hawker market, went to hotel, did some emails, went to the gym, ran and lifted weights, had a swin, went shopping again, went to dinner, came back and called home.
I’m taking another week off work after Malaysia as Lauren is coming to Australia for a photographic exhibition – she’s one of the keynote exhibitors and will have quite a lot of her work on display. Can’t wait to see it. We’ll be hanging out and touring around the sites and thrills of Melbourne.
