Tun Dr Mahathir Launched Dash Resort Langkawi...and I was there.

My stubby hand
Over the last weekend, YAB Tun Mr Mahathir arrived in Langkawi to officiate the grand launch of the all new trippy, very Alice-in-Wonderland Dash Resort Langkawi. And I was honored to have been invited to attend the event after two days of enjoying the resort itself. I must say, it was one of the most relaxing trips I've had in a long time.

Long story short - that was how I ended up booked on a tour group of 21 people to Turkey in November with Z.G Nan Fang Holidays with my baby sister as my travel companion.
