The launch of National Geographic store in Malaysia

On a Monday, the 21st June 2010, I was invited to see the official launch of the National Geographic store in Lot 10, a mall in Kuala Lumpur. It was quite an exciting event and to show you how exciting it was, here is a video by dancers immediately after the speeches to officiate the launch of the store.

Some of the VIPs that day were 3 generations of YTL Corporation's founding family comprising of Tan Sri Dato' Sri Yeoh Tiong Lay (the founder); Tan Sri Dr. Francis Yeoh (the Managing Director) and Ruth Yeoh (Director of Investment); The Minister of Tourism, as always smartly dressed in her cheong-sam ensemble, YB Dato' Sri Ng Yen Yen; and Malaysian first astronaut, Dr. Sheikh Muzafar. There was also a representative from National Geographic from Washington in the form of Ms Alison Middleton to see the opening of only the 4th National Geographic store in the world.

Here are some pictures at the event and more can be seen at the Facebook link here.
