  8. Hi,

    I’ve just come across your blog and I thought it was a really good read, I loved your recent piece about reality TV shows.
    We’ve created a travel-related item that I feel someone like you might be quite interested in. Essentially, it’s a quiz that’s been made just for a bit of fun, and it’s about adventurers and is generally just a fun thing to go with all things travel. I’d be really grateful if you could take a look at it and maybe put it up on your blog if you enjoy it, and I think it would even add some more value to your blog as a whole. It would be really helping me out if you could do this for me. You can find the quiz at http://www.tripbase.com/quiz/whichadventurer/, thanks!

    Thank you so much,

  10. Aubry and Zatashah, good luck with your stay out in KL. I am sure you will love it there as I have visited there 2 years ago. If you know anyone who would like a self drive tour or itinerary arranged for holidays in France or for short breaks – can you tell them about me and my site at http://www.francemadeeasy.com ? I also do quality self drive tours and itineraries (round Scotland where I am based) That site is at http://www.scotlandmadeeasy.co.uk

    If you could spread the word, that would be wonderful!! Have you managed to eat at Frangipane yet? – a most wonderful and interesting restaurant in KL – they do excellent Foie Gras!!!
    Good luck et bon appetit!!
    Best Wishes
    Marie Cruickshank.

  27. Aubry–

    I may have taught you English lessons when you were about 10. I was a Smith student doing a Junior year abroad. Are your parents Hubert and Chantal Menneson? If so, I’d love to hear news of them. They are such wonderful people.

    Lisa Ferrell

  28. Hi Lisa,
    Yes I remember you very well, great to hear from you after all these years! As you see, your English lessons paid off well 😉 I’m sending you a private message on your email address.

  29. Hello Princess and Frog,
    I love to read all of your posts, they’ve enlightened me a lot. Those places you’ve traveled to, the foods you’ve experienced. You’ve been blessed with such a life that most of us commoners would dream to have one. Nonetheless, I adore how down to earth you are as a Princess 🙂 Likewise to your brother, The Prince. I’ve heard a lot about him; his kindness and generosity 🙂 Wishing you all the best in life, and I’m sure most of us can’t wait to see you make cute babies!


  30. Dear Dahlia! Why thank you so much for your very sweet message. We are so touched! I try to share these fantastic destinations on Malaysia to encourage and promote our beautiful country to others who haven’t discovered it yet. Our region ASEAN has so much to offer!
    Thank you again for writing to us,
    Warm wishes,

  31. Hi…Salam to both of you.
    I like your website…….sooo good..interesting.

    By d way, my name is Din, Malaysian leaving in Abu Dhabi. Perhaps you should make Arabic Originalo……..big market though as I am working for Etihad Airways…Uae arabs like Malaysia so much.

    I will definitely buy a box and explore and experience Malaysia more than ever…..when I have leave….haha. That shooting thing and cage diving excite me……looking foward…..InsyaAllah.

    This is Tun Kwan, from Sabah.

    Can you give me a tip or two (or much more) about Paris? I am going to travel there this coming end-September with my girlfriend and would like to propose to her during this trip…. so you can imagine how anxious I am to make this as perfect as possible…. do email me with your advise or visit my Facebook page where you can find picture of me and my girlfriend ;*-)

    Many thanks!

    Best regards,
    Tun Kwan
