    Wow, Jan.
    If I am 1st time reading your posts, I will think a Singapore tourist ambassador is posting in this forum.. !!

    Just a little idea from me..

    With the current hot weather, why not add another 15-20k to about RM40k to escape to a snowy mountain for few days like St. Moritz, in the middle of Alps.

    You and your family can have a nice breakfast (with quality cheese and genuine European bread) while watching the sunrise in a snowy mountain resort with a cup of hot chocolate/coffee on your hand.. And don't forget to have a nice spa in warm water at 30 deg C while outside is freezing..

    With this unique experience, I guess you may regret spending RM15k in a hot, humid weather elsewhere...

    Cheers

    You were there. Did you try their croissant?

    Nearby there is a shop famous for roast duck which is directly opposite Tiong Bahru market. Give it a try if time permitted.

    Jan, glad to know you are helping the Canada/US economy this coming November…

    You don't need 4D lah... As a savvy businessman, I am sure whatever you spend for leisure is just your small change…


    p/s : I have not been to any part of North America except a small US town, Wisconsin and this is after many “appeal” from wife to accompany her annual business trip. I Just don’t feel like spending long mad hours flying there and the numerous mad transits to the middle of the continent...
