Selamat Datang

… or Welcome, as they say in #malaysia!

There are no words to describe just how busy our team has been since arriving in Malaysia (it’s a good thing I did that reverse sleep training!).  Tonight, Tuesday night, is the first time I have more than 60 minutes free – and there is nothing I want to do more than share what has been going on with you!

I arrived in Kuala Lumpur late Friday night, and after a restless night’s sleep, I joined nine of my IBM teammates on a sightseeing tour of Kuala Lumpur.  We started at the Batu Caves, which is a limestone hill that has a series of caves and cave temples, and is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, dedicated to Lord Murugan.  It is also the home of many long tailed-macaque monkeys.

Next, we went to the Petronas Twin Towers.  Unfortunately, tickets to the top were sold out so we were only able to admire the view from ground-level.  However, with the extra time – we made an unplanned stop at the Tourist Centre, where to my surprise, we were able to sample a variety of local Malaysian chocolates (and I love chocolate!).  Many were delicious; however, the most memorable ones were Chili Chocolate (very spicy) and Durian Chocolate (very aromatic)!

Next up – official business!  We visited the IBM office in Kuala Lumpur for a quick meeting and an office tour, followed by a team dinner.  While most of us IBMers take our office environment quite seriously, our two #ibmcsc coordinators from Australia Business Ventures (ABV) were enjoying their time in the office!
