YMCA Board of Governance Meeting 2014

Arrived in KL by train on Friday 14th night. KL was very hazy and had no rain for several weeks. 

YMCA KL was just a stone throw away from KL Sentral. However, I had to ask around for directions as the maps from the hand phone weren't good enough to guide me from the station. Stayed 2 nights in the YMCA and it brought back the nostalgic feelings.  I had stayed in this YMCA many times when I was a young doctor travelling to KL for conference.

The meeting was very useful for us who serve in non-profit boards.  The presentations by Ms Melissa were excellent.  She had a lot of experience in US.  The meetings went on for 2 days and l left KL on Sunday at 6 pm.

Talk on "Managing Severe COPD".

Talk held at Akamomiji Japanese Restaurant. Doctors wanted 78 slides instead of 20 slides. Very keen learners.
