Meng Lei and Steve Ling met up and hung around in the market where goodies for Chinese New Year were put on sale. Later, they popped in Premier Hotel (www.premierh.com.my ) to look me up.
I was more than glad to receive them. In return, I invited them to Cafe Palmelia for a chit-chat over our signature beverage - teh tarik.
Both Meng Lei and Steve are learned journalists with commentable flair in writing. Their photography skill is also most admirable, many a time making photographs look like living pictures.
We chatted over teh tarik on varied current issues - from inflation, upcoming parliamentary elections, local developments to Tan Sri Ting Pek Khiing's superdynamism. It was a wonderful time for me to catch up with them on issues of interest.
Meng Lei and Steve are bloggers also. Their blogs deserve a word of recommendation here to everybody (www.mengleiwong.blogspot.com ) (www.stevelinglt.blogspot.com ) .
