Hello everyone. I left for Malaysia at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 15 to speak at the International College of Music (ICOM). It’s located in the city of Kuala Lumpur and is run by a Berklee alumna, Irene Savaree. For those of you that don’t know, Malaysia is 12 hours ahead of you so I’m actually blogging from your future. I love it. Anyway, we left at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday and went to Chicago. There was a typhoon in the Pacific so our connecting flight was delayed from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Since we arrived at about 2-ish, we went into Chi-town for lunch and had the best steak I’ve tasted in a long while. It must be that corn-fed Midwestern beef. Mmmm, just thinking about it is making me want to get back to Chicago. Which leads me to another point. I feel like I’m on an episode of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations because I’ve eaten in Chicago, Hong Kong, and Kuala Lumpur on this trip.
