German visitor 德国访客
Nov 29. 5:00 pm.
On board a flight from Vientian, Laos to Kuala Lumpur, an Malaysian passenger was coming home after a holiday in Laos, struck a conversation with a German who continued his Asian holiday after Laos.
Both were stranger to each other, and their meeting each other on board a plane was one in a million.
"..so Mr. Lee, which city in Malaysia you are staying in?"
" I am staying in Kajang..."
" ah ha ... I would be going to Kajang to visit a friend .... her name? Pauline..."
"... Pauline ... Pauline ...and German Embassy ..... Ah! I remembered ....one of my wife's good friends named Pauline too ....."
Two hours later...at Kuala Lumpur airport.
" Hi Pauline, Lee here. Do you have a German friend Mr. Eilers ....?"
The world is not a big place after all!!!
Today, at about 10:30am, we welcomed Mr. Eilers to our home.
Mr. Eilers was former Chancellor of the German Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, then Pauline's immediate boss.
He left Kuala Lumpur in 2004 for a new posting in Iceland. He is now retired.
He is back to this region on holiday after 7 years which covers Laos, Singapore, Sarawak (Mulu Caves), Kuala Lumpur, Cameron Highlands，Melaka and Penang.
My wife has a lot of catching up with Mr. Eilers.
We accompanied him for a Putrajaya visit and he left for Kuala Lumpur after lunch. （More pictures in Facebook)
“嗨 Pauline, 我是李先生，请问你有一位德国朋友艾肋斯先生吗？”
太太与他谈了好多个别及相识们的生活近况。过后，我们陪他到布城 (Putrajaya) 观光。在2004年他离开时，布城还没有全部开发。
在加影用过午餐后，离开回去吉隆坡。 （更多照片Facebook ）
