Today has been a day of meetings. At 10 am, Elvin a PhD student from Emory University, US dropped by for a long chat on Malaysian politics. He is writing a thesis on Malaysian Opposition politics and wanted to know my views on a range of matters. Elvin visited me last year and I bumped into him again this year at my RSIS talk in Singapore.
After that I had a meeting with a former reporter who is now trying his hand at electronic business. He wants to test out his new app in Subang Jaya and decided to give me a heads up of his plans. It is a social enterprise venture. I am often surprised that Malaysians are truly never short of business ideas.
Then I had a lunch meeting with some middle age friends from the business, media, investment and banking sectors. Inevitably when they invite me once every 3 or 4 months, they want to hear the latest political gossip. And towards the last dishes, they turn the table and want to lecture me about what we should be doing to win! As they say there is no such thing as a free lunch! It’s all in good fun as I get some valuable updates too on the pulse of corporate Malaysia.
Later tonight I have another event. Tomorrow I have on schedule 7 events from 7.30 am to 9 pm. It’s gonna be a very long day tomorrow for me.
Have a good weekend everyone!
