FASH and the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin
The start of 2010 has brought an abundant of opportunities for us to meet our fellow countrymen in many different settings. It began with an OMEC Yes brainstorming session on the proposed events for the year. A small group of OMEC Yes including FASH, were invited to join the team in charge of organising several events to raise the profile of the Young Entrepreneur Section of the Overseas Malaysian Executive Council (see link for more info on OMEC http://www.my-omec.com/).
We threw a couple of ideas around and now we are in charge of spearheading a few of the OMEC Yes events this year. Exciting times ahead for FASH! We have one event coming soon which we will be unveiling all the details on the blog soon. Look out for it!
Next, we attended the OMEC AGM in Corus Hotel, London. We had the chance to meet many of the top Malaysian and Malaysian-linked professionals and entrepreneurs.
To top it all off, we had the chance to hear the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin speak at the Malaysian High Commission in London. He was an impressive speaker, seamlessly speaking in both English and Malay, capturing the audience with his easy manner and well thought out words. He seemed genuinely concerned about the education system in Malaysia and eager to ensure that no efforts will be spared to improve it. Being mothers of young children, it was very reassuring.
He revealed then that the top 20 Schools in Malaysia would be in unveiled soon. When the list was announced recently, we were pleasantly surprised and immensely proud of the fact that both our schools were No.1 & No.2 of the top 20 Schools in Malaysia. Go Sri Aman and STF!
A good start to the year. Our aim for this year is to take FASH to the next level and be better than ever before. With the help of the fashies, we'll get there.
