Visit of European friends to Malaysia

Recently there were 35 people from Europe have visited Malaysia. The majority were from our HQ (Germany), 6 from our sister company in Switzerland and 4 from our sister company in Italy. This is the biggest tour event organized by our HQ for all the European plants. They have chosen Malaysia to be their destination. The itinerary included 4 nights in Langkawi at Frangipani Resort and Spa, one night at Strawberry Park Resort Cameron Highlands and 5 nights at Grand Millennium Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.

I was lucky to be chosen by my boss to accompany the group to Langkawi and Cameron Highlands. Idayu has been allowed to come with me the join the tour. We met our European friends when they arrived KLIA on 22 May 2008 morning. Then we took the flight at 8:30 am to Langkawi together with them. A tour guide from Holiday Tours & Travel Sdn Bhd already waiting for us when we arrived Langkawi airport.

The leader from Germany for this group was Mr Christoph Esser. He came with his wife, Mrs Mahnaz Esser. They were both very friendly and so nice. There's also Mrs Petra Schmidt. Also Mr Mittermair and his wife Mrs Traudl Mittermair. They became good friends to me and Idayu. They enjoyed the stopover at the rubber estate, seeing the normal life of Malay kampung pasar malam or night market. The got the chance to see the local fruits like rambutan, durian, mangoesteen etc.
