KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia / 17-19 June 2011

Here's the reason why I missed much of this year's Singapore International Piano Festival. Having made a final rail trip up north to Kuala Lumpur, we could not resist doing a spot of sightseeing and shopping. If Singaporeans thought they had it good, the Malaysians can be said to have surpassed their neighbours in many other ways.
