Showing us around Shangri La Hotel Paris hotel is the assistant of communication coordinator Ms. Marie. Talk about a small world as we found out she was my school mate in St Christopher International School, Penang when we were young before relocating to Fiji while I continued my studies in Chung Ling High School. Meeting her 6000 miles away after a decade definitely brings unspoken joy.
