Yesterday morning, I took the Kuala Lumpur monorail from near the hotel in Butik Bintang to KLCC, where I met Chinese-Malay teacher, businessman and Time Twin Chan Huan Wei.

Suria KLCC is one of almost 30 gleaming air-conditioned malls within the shopping paradise that is Kuala Lumpur. Of all KL’s shopping complexes, though, Suria KLCC has the most iconic location, taking up the bottom six stories of the Petronas Towers: the eighth tallest building in the world.

Sitting at an alfresco cafe , with Tower One towering above us, I learned about Malaysia’s history, cultures and economics from Mr Chan and had a fascinating, enlightening and fun chat about personal identity and success.  Huge thanks to him for taking time from his busy schedule to meet us and participate in the project.
