|The iconic Petronas Twin Towers -- resplendent at night|
The hectic sked aside, we got to visit the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, until 2003 the world's tallest buildings, not just once but twice. We were billeted at the ParkRoyal Hotel along Jalan Sultan Ismail near Bukit Bintang and the towers were just 10-12 minutes away by foot. That we stayed very near the malls, especially Low Yat Plaza, was a tempting cause for dropping by for a look-see of the low-priced electronics on offer, but that's an altogether different story.
|AirAsia premises within LCCT|
Going around the AirAsia offices within the LCCT, we saw a vibrant and dynamic workplace, the walls splashed with larger-than-life timelines and murals of the airline's many endeavors including motorsports and basketball (ABL), among many others. With the recent establishment of AirAsia Philippines, it is only natural to aspire to achieve the vibrancy and vivacity of LCCT for the Clark hub in Diosdado Macapagal International Airport. We even dropped by founder, Tony Fernandes', corner office which is as casual as casual can be with a floor-to-ceiling wall of baseball caps and beanbag on the floor. Our short talk with Regional Head of Customer Experience, Zaman Ahmad,was revealing as he intimated that the airlines is establishing its ASEAN office in Jakarta to make it an Asian airline instead of being a Malaysian brand and that perhaps, as a sign of the times, he said that more and more business people are flying with AirAsia.
