royal selangor’s school of hard knocks

Yoon Kit kindly invited me to the launch of Royal Selangor’s Spring 2009 Collection. Since I had such great fun at one of their launches nearly 2 years ago, I said yes and dragged a couple of friends along for the ride.

Since the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre is all the way in Setapak, we thought we’d arrive late. Then eyeris guided us through multiple highways and we were there on time! Less than 30 mins from PJ during rush hour! I still cannot believe it…

The last time I was there, I did not make myself a shiny pewter bowl. So I made sure that I did this time round.

We were given a flat round piece of pewter which we were supposed to mould into the shape of a bowl. It was hard work okay! I had sore arms after that, and still ended up with a sorry excuse of a pewter bowl.

Got our ‘accomplishment’ certs anyway. Might come in handy for future resumes

It was nice catching up with Yoon Kit and lovely wife, Wei Kim. Stayed way past our bedtime – after all it was a weekday and we aren’t as young as we used to be.. Thanks for the invite ๐Ÿ™‚

My pewter bowl which I knocked into near oblivion is still in the box. I wonder what I can use it for…
