Amazing Holiday By Lorraine Penn

Many years ago when I traveled with a shopaholic friend to Singapore via an unplanned stop over in Kuala Lumpur, where apparently there had been a terrorists bombing at the airport earlier. Not something we wanted to know on arrival? Most passengers who were not terminating their flight at Kuala Lumpur were invited to alight from the plane just to stretch their legs. We both decided to have a quick look at Kuala Lumpur even though it was only the airport. First port of call was the ladies and what a shock to find that the toilets were just a whole in the floor. There was no way that we would use this facility so we hurriedly left to investigate further outside. The short visit became quite an interesting one though, as I met a man of Middle East descendant with several escorts that appeared to be security guards. It turned out the man was actually a crown prince and he was keen on talking to me and finding out where we were heading. “Singapore” was my response, same as him. He invited the both of us to his hotel when we arrived in Singapore. Should we go or shouldn’t we was the decision that we had to make, but I was intrigued.
Full of nerves, we arrived at the Penthouse of his hotel, were we going to enjoy the evening or be taken into a harem? I thoroughly enjoyed an amazing evening! Something I will never forget.
