THIS is the last time I will be away on a six-week stretch. It all started when I had to attend my Harvard Business School (HBS) AMP 182 annual class reunion in Lisbon, Portugal on June 20. As I had to attend two graduation convocations in London on July 11 and July 26, I decided to stay back in Europe and travel.
It was a big mistake. After two weeks, I miss the daily political announcements, my friends and our multicultural Malaysian food. I could find reasonably good Chinese and Indian food in London and New York but it was difficult to find authentic Malay curries and sambal.
