There are some PALA members from the Middle East that are members here or were you talking about PALA members in EDAW? Are there any Pinoys there in the Singapore office? I'm the only practising LA here in Australia from UP, my wife Razel is also a PALA member but she's not into LA anymore. I'm also an AILA member since 2005.
I do know several people from BC Hawaii, but not Sam Kim. Maybe he should join the lounge so everybody gets to know each other.
Crazy busy is good!! Are you guys swamped with lots of local projects? Sounds like there should be plenty worldwide projects in your office..
BTW, is that Malaysian you're speaking?
