from the Commander-in-Chief
Dear Guests,
It is my pleasure to welcome you onboard.
May marks my eighth month as the Group CEO of Malaysia
Airlines. It has certainly been exciting times, with never a
dull moment.
Over the last few months, we have introduced several new
initiatives and rejuvenated many of our products. We also
received our latest flagship product, the Airbus 350 with modern
and improved offerings that include, for the first time, Wi-Fi
onboard a Malaysian carrier. It is a great new product with
better-quality food and amenities. We have been adding more
frequencies to Tokyo and will be adding more capacity during
the peak periods and soon the A350s will be introduced onto
our Japan routes. We also launched the newly refurbished
lounges at KLIA.
goingplacesmagazine.com | 6 | May 2018
Technology continues to be our main driver. We have invested
heavily here to introduce several innovative solutions such as
a more agile website and new mobile applications. All these
improvements and innovations were set out with only one
objective in mind, and that is to enhance the overall experience of
our guests. Several more initiatives are in the pipeline, which we
will progressively roll out.
But in all of this, what separates us from the other airlines? It
is our promise of Malaysian Hospitality. It begins with us and
is the guiding principle behind our new brand campaign. I am
excited about this new campaign which revisits the essence of
Malaysia Airlines as the national carrier of the country. Malaysian
Hospitality has long been synonymous with the airline but what
we are doing now is re-emphasising to the world that Malaysian
Hospitality begins with us.
Izham Ismail
Group Chief Executive Officer
Malaysia Airlines Berhad
As the national carrier, we represent the warmth, humility and
hospitality that Malaysia is well-known for. Our diversity, heritage
and culture will be our reference points and the roots of our
brand promise and it will be underlined with modernity – just like
the country – straddling the past with the promise of the future.
Malaysian Hospitality will encompass all aspects of the guest
experience for Malaysian Hospitality truly begins with us.
Have a wonderful flight. ■

EDITOR’S NOTE
Everyone loves a wedding and when that
wedding is set to become one of the most
watched events of 2018, we can’t help but
join in the celebrations. Welcome to our first
British-themed issue!
His Royal Highness Prince Harry will marry his
sweetheart, American actress Meghan Markle,
in a ceremony expected to be watched by
millions of people around the world on
19 May. The royal couple will marry at St
George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, promising
a wedding centred on fun, joy and a chance to
celebrate with the public – traits that reflect
their characters.
goingplacesmagazine.com | 8 | May 2018
Julie Goh
Editor
So, in conjunction with their special day, we
have put together a special issue focusing on
Great Britain, from destination articles to top
London establishments for classic British food.
In our special wedding preview on pages 48-51,
we have rounded up everything we know
about the wedding (up to the time of printing,
that is!), from the venue to the bridal bouquet
to the person that is Meghan Markle. To top
it off, we even asked our Malaysian fashion
designers to imagine the bridal gown they
would design for Meghan and the sketches are
simply stunning!
If you are a die-hard royal family fan and are
travelling to Windsor to catch a glimpse of the
bride and groom on their wedding day, take
our travel guide on pages 29-31 with you and
discover what else there is to see in the twin
towns of Windsor and Eton. And if you are
truly obsessed, let’s see if you have outdone
Margaret Tyler, a dedicated royalist who has
filled her London home with GBP40,000
(RM220,000) worth of royal family mementos.
To learn about the rich and varied tapestry of
the British monarchy, turn to pages 64-68 for
our list of must-visit locations to walk in the
footsteps of the royal family.
In other travel stories, Kam Raslan is hoping
to tempt you away from London, by going
beyond the capital city to the picturesque
English countryside. The road trip he has
planned will take you from London to
Brighton, driving past beautiful rolling hills and
rugged moorland to the towns of Sevenoaks
and Tunbridge Wells, and ending at the
seaside town of Brighton.
If you’re interested in botany, read our feature
on the Temperate House in Kew Gardens,
London’s world-leading botanic gardens, only
30 minutes by train from central London. The
Victorian glasshouse reopens this month
after a five-year restoration. A visit to London
is never complete without experiencing one
of its theatre productions, and in his article,
writer James Luxford has outlined what’s on
offer and shared tips for getting the most out
of your visit.
Lastly, I had the pleasure of interviewing
Britain’s High Commissioner to Malaysia,
Her Excellency Vicki Treadell, for our special
issue. She has a shared connection with us,
Malaysians. Born in Ipoh, Perak, she has
returned, not once but twice, as a diplomat
to Malaysia.
More than 2,600 local schoolchildren,
community champions and charity workers
have been invited to watch the wedding from
inside the walls of Windsor Castle. Other
well-wishers on location will also have the
opportunity to see the royal couple on their
carriage ride through Windsor. But millions of
others like me around the world will have to
settle for the television to watch the highly
anticipated event.
See you in June. ■

@goingplacesmag
I was raised by my late grandmother who lived through the Second World War.
When I was growing up, my grandmother would recount the heartbreaking stories
and tear-jerking encounters she experienced. Even though my grandmother had
always been passionate about education, as a girl in the 1930s, she was forced to
drop out of school at the age of nine to work and support her family. Going through
my early 20s and after learning more about education and championing education
equality, particularly from Australia’s first female Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, I
have been passionate about promoting education equality whenever and wherever
I have the capacity. As I read this month’s Malaysian Icon section, I was delighted
to read about the late Tan Sri P.G. Lim, a remarkable woman in our nation’s history,
who dedicated her life to championing the rights of the underprivileged. I realised
how significant and important it is for us to celebrate International Women’s Day
on 8 March each year. There are still many girls all across the world who do not
have access to education. They could be stripped of education because of various
reasons, ranging from financial instability to geographical constraints and political
influence. While International Women’s Day helps to raise awareness about
women’s rights, we should also acknowledge that the work to champion women’s
access to education, health and other basic human rights goes beyond 8 March.
Resonating with this year’s theme to #PushForProgress, there is no better time to
feature this article on the remarkable Malaysian icon, and to remind us all there is
more work to be done. We owe all our daughters a better and fairer tomorrow.

It was my first travel to
Malaysia on 5 March from Manila and
I am very happy that my very first
engagement with the country is
through Going Places. I was
fascinated by how your Editor Julie
Goh narrated the origin of the
campaign, “A Diamond is Forever”. I
was bedazzled by Sharon Crowther’s
view that Southeast Asia is one the
best places to buy dazzling gems and
that includes our very own San Juan
in the Philippines as the main source
of the famous pearls. The article
reminded me of former First Lady
Imelda Marcos’ rubies, diamonds,
and other gems that have been
flashed all over the world. It was truly
an engaging flight and I must say
that Going Places competed
triumphantly with the video and
audio entertainment offerings.

Lights, Fire, Music
Arcadia London marks its 10th anniversary by taking visitors on a grand journey of music and theatre, paired with robotics, pyrotechnics and
biomechanics. British electronic music giants, the likes of Rudimental, Leftfield and Groove Armada, will perform against a backdrop of the
event’s iconic centrepiece – the fire-belching Spider. The gigantic installation was built from over 50 tonnes of recycled military hardware and
runs on recycled vegetable oil. Other highlights include the immersive Metamorphosis Show, which features aerial performances and mini
spiders on zip wires above the crowd, as well as Lightning, where performance artists synchronise lightning bolts from Tesla coils to musical
notes. A food village on site is where visitors will find all sorts of delicious food on offer.

Enduring Legend
Inspiring Showcase
In the old days, the Tamparuli Bridge in Sabah was built to provide an
easier way for villagers to travel across the mighty Tuaran river. It has
since become a landmark and passed into folklore, retold through
the generations. The Sabah Fest Musical Theatre will bring one of
these stories to life, through an immersive musical dubbed Solungkui:
Jambatan Tamparuli. The tragic tale tells of a beautiful young Dusun
woman who falls in love with a British engineer, only to be betrayed
into becoming a human sacrifice to appease the river spirits.
The annual London Craft Week is a spectacular showcase of design,
fashion, art and luxury, presented by everyone from celebrated
masters and famous brands to emerging makers and independent
artists. Spanning various venues throughout the city, the event
highlights the best of international and British creativity and
craftsmanship. Explore acclaimed museums and galleries such as the
V&A and the British Museum, catch a behind-the-scenes glimpse of
famous brands, or nip into hidden studios and bustling workshops to
meet the festival’s artists, engineers, makers and creators.

Golden Times
It’s always a good time to be out and about in Australia’s Gold Coast, especially when the Gold Coast Food & Wine Festival is around. Held from
31 May to 3 June, the festival is one of the country’s most exciting and innovative food events, and this year is no different. Among the highlights
of this four-day event is the Picnic In The Park, where you can dine on dishes from Surfers Paradise restaurants, while enjoying live music
performances; food and wine tours; a gathering of the best barbecue teams serving up their best slow-cooked ribs, brisket, pork and chicken; as
well as the Tambourine Mountain long table feast, where you can sample award-winning cheeses, paté, terrines and cured meats alongside craft

Italian In Langkawi
Northern Italian cuisine arrives at The Danna Langkawi courtesy of
The Terrace’s head chef Federico Zapperi. Here, he creates a range
of Italian dishes that suit the Asian preference for sweet, savoury
and balanced flavours, while never straying too far from their Italian
roots. One dish that exemplifies this approach is the Beef Carpaccio
starter, which is served with powdered truffle oil and ice cream, while
the Braised Beef Cheeks is another winner, thanks to the eighthour braise in a full-bodied red wine sauce. There’s no shortage of
seafood dishes as well – among them are the Seafood Linguine pasta
made with fresh seafood bought fresh from the market, as well as
Baked Cod with Saffron Risotto. Before ending the meal, be sure
to have Chef Federico’s Cioccolato Intenso – an intense bittersweet
dessert comprising chocolate almond sable, almond nougatine, flexi
chocolate and raspberry powder.
Appreciate the art of cocktail-making during the Singapore Cocktail
Festival, which brings together some of the world’s best bartenders,
bar owners and cocktail experts from 4 to 13 May to the island nation.
Among the festival’s key attractions is the Festival Village at Empress
Lawn, where from 4 to 6 May you can sample cocktails from 30 of
Singapore’s best bars, while soaking in an outdoor festival vibe.
Throughout the 10-day event, attendees who purchase a Cocktail
Passport (SGD15/RM45) will get to enjoy discounts, special cocktails
and food pairing menus in participating bars such as Astor Bar, Bar
Stories, Nutmeg & Clove, Potato Head Folk and Smoke & Mirrors.

Seoul In Spring
Lounge around and have a cuppa tea at Newens Tea House, which
is promoting their Journey Through Tea, a monthly series of themed
tea-time sets inspired by tea-time cultures from around the world.
This month, the tea house will be serving their Joyous May Afternoon
Tea set, which features delicacies such as apple and hazelnut cake,
Rainbow Cake, scones with clotted cream, and strawberry-flavoured
Maids of Honour Tarts as well as a free-flow of Life and Beauty Tea,
a herbal infusion of aloe vera and tropical fruits. June features the
Summer Holiday Afternoon Tea, where bright and summery flavours
arrive on the tray in the form of mixed berries crêpe, panna cotta and
madeleines, served alongside a free-flow of Iced Fruits of Paradise
Tea made with mango, pineapple and papaya.
If you’re in Seoul looking for a refined dining experience, be sure to
book a seat at the Michelin-starred Soigné. For the spring season,
Chef Jun Lee has crafted a menu based on Korean wild plants, or
namul, an often-underrated aspect of traditional Korean cuisine.
“Many people know bibimbap, but the truth is, all of the vegetable
ingredients on top of bibimbap are namul. Our goal in this episode is
to re-illuminate the value of namul by stepping away from treating
namul merely as materials for side dishes and instead focusing on
the unique characteristics of respective ingredients, and to present
the direction for our food cultural heritage,” said Jun. Dubbed ‘Breath
of the Wild’, the seasonal menu features dishes such as Perilla Leaf
and Porcini Mushrooms, Butterbur with Lobster, and Shepherd's
Purse Soup with bomdong.

A Celebration In Madrid
Malaysian artist Yusof Ghani will present his solo exhibition ‘Bendera – Spirit of Celebration’, featuring his Segerak VII series in Madrid this
month. The paintings in this series depict Yusof’s characteristic bold abstract strokes converging with an intentional creation of subtle human
faces and figures in constant movement and interaction with each other. This energy in movement is accentuated through the use of bright
background colours that are present in different manners, at times very clearly defined in the background and at times as part of the figure itself
to showcase the mood and emotions being conveyed. Every painting is a conversation, a dance, a celebration, an opportunity to lift the spirit.

The English city of Bath is a World Heritage Site, famous for its
gorgeous golden-coloured Bath-stone architecture and its Roman
baths, which are fed by mineral-rich springs located under the city.
But what better way to really get to know a new place than through
its art? This month, the Bath Art Fair offers such an experience. It’s
a delightfully local occasion, presenting works largely from artists
based in Bath and Somerset. There will also be live music, locally
made cakes and entertainment for little ones!
National Favourites
The National Gallery Singapore is something of an institution;
housed in the beautifully restored former city hall and Supreme
Court, the venue is home to a vast collection of works produced by
Singaporean artists and those from across Southeast Asia. In fact,
it’s the world’s largest collection of Singaporean art, and this month,
the gallery invites visitors to get to know it better. ‘(Re)collect: The
Making of Our Art Collection’ explores the origins of the National
Gallery Singapore’s collection, which is continuously evolving. Look

Kids
These Days
goingplacesmagazine.com | 28 | May 2018
One of the great things about getting
older is that I can now be dismissive about
young people. I can now say things like, “You’ll
understand when you get older”, “When I was
your age …” and “Get off my lawn, you pesky
kids!” And the great thing is that I don’t even
have a lawn, but they have to respect me
because I am older than them. I mean, what
do young people know? Nothing! They might
have their fidget spinners and their Nintendos
but I lived through Windows ’98 and Y2K. I’ve
seen things and now I have the wisdom that
comes with experience. I am finally superior to
somebody and all I had to do was get older. But
something happened recently that has made
me realise that young people know something I
don’t, and that they might be better than me.
There was a terrible tragedy in Florida recently.
There was yet another one of those awful
American school shootings and 17 people died.
But from this tragedy there emerged a group
of teenagers who spoke with an eloquence,
poise and determination that left me stunned.
Seemingly instantaneously these Florida
schoolkids coalesced into a movement that
has galvanised not only other young people
but also adults with their determination and
with their language. They speak in complete
sentences with wit and with wisdom as they
fight to change America’s bizarre gun laws. As
one 18-year-old said in a truly powerful speech,
“We are going to be the kids you read about in
textbooks,” and she’s probably right. I’m not just
impressed by these teenagers, I’m also learning
from them.
Where did they find their eloquence and
intelligence? I couldn’t do that when I was their
age and I can’t do it now either. I was led to
believe, no, I had been promised that young
people and the coming generations are, well,
Parents, you should have your children do
theatre. Theatre’s lessons and experiences (even the
humiliating ones) will fuel them long after they have
forgotten all about the periodic table.
not that great. But now I’m really scared because
they might be very bright indeed. In searching
for answers as to why these Florida “kids” are so
smart, I discovered that many of them are active
members of their school’s theatre department.
And suddenly it all made sense.
Theatre is not encouraged in Malaysian schools
these days, but it really should be. Today’s
parents are probably afraid that their children
will be dazzled by the bright lights and glamour
of the stage and will want to become actors. This
is an understandable fear. Most of my closest
friends are actors and they’re all very poor. But
theatre teaches children lessons they cannot
learn anywhere else. It teaches them to face
their fears because going onto that stage and
putting on a great performance is terrifying. By
speaking the words of great playwrights, it helps
them to learn about adult concepts and the
adult world at an early age. And finally, the sheer
effort of putting on a play is not only exhilarating
but it requires teamwork, attention to detail and
split-second timing.
I did theatre when I was at school. I had a great
singing voice but I was a really terrible actor, so
I was always pushed to the back of the stage
where nobody could see me. But in a production
of the musical Oliver! I had to go to the front of
the stage and do a ridiculous little dance. Each
night I would dread the moment I had to do my
dance because I was so bad at it and I could feel
the audience cringe in their embarrassment for
me. It was the most humiliating experience of
my life. But the good thing is that I got my most
humiliating experience out of the way when I
was only ten.
Parents, you should have your children do
theatre. It’s a wonderful learning ground.
Theatre’s lessons and experiences (even the
humiliating ones) will fuel them long after they
have forgotten all about the periodic table. And
if you need any further encouragement then
just watch the schoolchildren in Florida as they
try to change their world. Obviously, it’s not
just theatre that makes these young people
so remarkable: they’ve also grown up with the
Internet and know how to use it. So now I’m
worried that the coming generations might be
quite special and that an old person like me will
be left spluttering, “I would have gotten away
with it if it hadn’t been for you darn kids!”. ■

Windsor + Eton, England | MY GUIDE
Only 35 minutes by train from London, you don’t need a
royal wedding to visit the twin towns of Windsor and Eton
Words Amy McPherson | Illustration Josephine Skapare | Art Direction Euric Liew
See & Do
ROYAL WEDDING VENUE
Windsor Castle is the oldest and
largest inhabited castle in the
world, where the Queen spends
her weekends. Forty monarchs
have resided in this Castle. Be sure
to time your visit with the Castle’s
change of guards at 11.00 a.m.
each day. If you happen to be
outside the castle before this time,
you can watch the New Guards
procession on the main road
toward the castle. Not to be missed
is St George’s Chapel inside the
Castle compound, where Prince
Harry was baptised. It is also here
that he will wed Meghan Markle on
Saturday, 19 May.
WALK THE CARRIAGE WAY
Take a stroll up the tree-lined
‘Long Walk’ in Windsor Great
Park, the path the Queen and
visiting Heads of States travel in
their carriages towards the Castle.
Monuments such as the Copper
Horse, the Obelisk and Roman ruins
imported from Libya are scattered
across the park amid the beautiful
lawns and ancient oaks that are
alive with wildlife.
GO OPEN TOP
While Windsor is relatively easy
to walk around, it may be more
entertaining to get on the top deck
of The Original Tour Windsor bus
and have the attractions pointed out
and explained to you. The bus will
also cross the river and pass Eton
College along the way and is a good
way to get orientated around this
Royal town. Parts of the tour follow
the route of the wedding procession!
ROYAL ENGAGEMENT

WALK WITH THE QUEEN
Joining 63 points of interest is the
Queens Walkway, a self-guided
walking route around Windsor that
links the major attractions and
viewing points in town, with views
across the river to Eton. Pick up a
map and walking directions from
the Information Centre to begin
your tour!
DISCOVER ETON
Across the River Thames is Eton,
a small town that has great
importance in history. The best
way to learn about Eton is to follow
the self-guided Eton Walkway,
signposted by bronze Eton coat of
arms markers on the ground and
trails many of Eton’s most significant
historical and cultural sights.
GET AN EDUCATION
Eton is most famously known for
the prestigious Eton College, where
Prince Harry and Prince William,
The Duke of Cambridge, both
studied. Visit on a Sunday afternoon
to learn everything about the town
at the Eton Museum on the
college grounds.

on the Thames to learn some of the
interesting facts about Windsor and
Eton, as well as take in the beautiful
sights along the way. The French

ONE FOR THE EQUESTRIANS
The Queen has a soft spot for her
horses. For equestrian enthusiasts,
the Royal Windsor Horse Show
happening from 9-13 May is the
event to go for. This is the only
time when the public can access
the private grounds of Windsor
Castle. It features events such
as Show Jumping, Dressage and

regiments.
FIELDS OF GOLD
Spring brings blossoms of daffodils
across the country, but nowhere
as much as the Daffodil Valley
in The Valley Garden of Windsor
Great Park. This is where you’ll get
to see England’s largest display
of daffodils, amid the fantastic
array of azaleas, camellias and
magnolias.
WATCH POLO
The Queen first presented the
trophy in 1960, and the Cartier
Queen’s Cup is now one of the
top five polo tournaments in the
world. Held at the Guards Polo Club
in Windsor Great Park, it is a key
event in the English social season.
From 22 May to 17 June.
GO TO THE RACES
Arguably the highlight of the
British social calendar, when
tradition, pageantry, fashion
and style come together for the
excitement of the race, watch the
Royal Procession from Golden
Gates into the Parade Ring at
Royal Ascot from 19 to 23 June.
COUNT THE SWANS
Swan Upping is an annual
population census of the mute
swans on the River Thames,
performed by Her Majesty’s Swan
Warden and the Royal Swan
Uppers in traditional wooden
rowing boats. This may be a bizarre
sight for foreign visitors but is a
historic ceremony that dates from
the 12th century when the Crown
claimed ownership of all mute
swans. This not-to-be-missed
event takes place on 16-20 July.
THEATRE FESTIVAL
Festival lovers will love the mixed
programmes at the Windsor
Fringe Festival, where music,

HE Victoria Treadell | IN PROFILE
The Accidental Diplomat
Her Excellency Victoria Treadell did not plan for a career in the foreign service.
Now, nearly 40 years later, she has achieved many firsts, including as the first
female British High Commissioner to Malaysia on 21 October 2014.
Interview Julie Goh | Photography SooPhye
was one occasion when we came back. Then as
a young junior diplomat, I was here on my first
assignment to the British High Commission and
that was between 1986 and 1990.
What about your childhood that was
most memorable?
Yes, there’s a lot of visible change in the
economic development of Malaysia. You just
have to look at the infrastructure. If I go back
to my childhood or even when I was here in
the late 80s, early 90s, KLCC was a race course.
The twin towers at KLCC as we see it today did
not exist. The whole city centre transformation,
the highways that we have now in Malaysia
have shortened the drive time between KL and
Ipoh, for example, when it would have taken
at least four to five hours to drive before the
new highways were built. In that sense, I have
seen a lot of development, a lot of economic
transformation. The Malaysian economy has
gone through diversification and is not so
dependent on commodities. This is something
your government is focused on, including the
whole new digital economic agenda.
I think it was being part of a very large family,
a very typical Malaysian family. My mother, in
particular, was one of nine (siblings), so I had lots
of aunties and uncles who had lots of children, so
huge gangs of cousins. With the aunties taking
turns at weekends and having the nephews and
nieces over, my childhood memories were very
much filled with the fun and games of being
with cousins. Food, of course, was a dominating
factor, like all Malaysian households, particularly
around Chinese New Year, but also during other
festivals and when my grandfather, gung-gung,
was still alive, we would go and visit. I also
remember going to school as a typical Malaysian
child with my blue pinafore dress, white shirt and
white canvas pumps. Going to school with my
friends from all the races, and I think back then,
in the late 60s just being friends with everybody,
going to each other’s houses with the different
festivals, whether it was Diwali or Hari Raya. It
was very much a multi-cultural environment that
I grew up in. Those are the memories of
my childhood.
You spent nine years here as a child and
went to a local school for two years;
do you speak any Bahasa Malaysia?
I learnt Bahasa at school and some of my parents’
staff spoke Bahasa but it was an English medium
education then. Like a lot of children in Malaysia,
you grow up trilingual. We spoke English because
that’s what my father spoke. When I was with my
mother’s family, we would speak in Cantonese
and of course, Bahasa was something you
picked up and also learnt at school. I often say
I left Malaysia when I was eight, so I have the
vocabulary of an eight-year-old.
How many times have you been
back prior to 2014?
I came back a couple of times for family holidays
when I was a teenager. One year, in particular,
was my grandfather’s 80th birthday and 80 years
is a very significant age if you’re Chinese. So that
May 2018_InProfile_Vicki Treadell02b.indd 33
Malaysia, then and now, must have
been a world of difference.
I’ve seen the change in other things as well.
For example, English is no longer the medium
of education and so, vernacular schools are
flourishing, which I think one can understand
but at the same time, one of the things that
Malaysia has lost, which we need to find a way to
put it back, is that generations of young people
have not grown up together, have not gone to
school together. Socialising amongst Malaysians
happens in a different way. It’s wonderful that we
still have the tradition of open houses but in some
sense – maybe it’s nostalgia – open house was
My team and I have
been working on
promoting the modern and
contemporary relevance of
Britain because although
we have a history and
the people-to-people
relationship, why
should Britain matter to
Malaysians today?
every weekend across all your friends. You didn’t
wait for festivals to go to the homes of other
races. Now, it’s only three to four times a year.
How would you describe relations between
Great Britain and Malaysia in 2014 and now?
I would contrast it to when I was first here in
1986 at the height of “Buy British Last”. It was
not the best period of our history, and I contrast
it to returning all these years later when the
relationship is as strong as it has ever been.
There has been a renewal in our relationship.
That is something that I and my team have been
working very much on and if I use the example
of “Buy British Last” in the 80s, today, walk into
any shopping mall in Malaysia, you will find
British stores whether it’s Marks and Spencer
or perhaps less obvious, but every Guardian
Pharmacy is owned by Britain’s Jardines. That
tells a story of how since that low ebb in our
relationship, we have rebuilt it and gone from
strength to strength. Now, it’s not just about
Malaysian students going to the U.K. to pursue
their studies, but British institutions are investing
in Malaysia. We have five British university
campuses here. Nottingham was the first
one, and we have over 30 British international
schools. So British academic institutions are
investing in Malaysia and in many respects,
helping Malaysia realise its own ambitions of
becoming an education destination in this part
of the world.

Born in Malaysia, Vicki, as she is fondly
known, received her early education at Tarcisian
Convent in Ipoh. She talks to us about her early
childhood spent with a large family and coming
back as a diplomat not once, but twice, since
leaving Malaysia at the age of eight.
You obviously had a clear idea of what
you wanted to achieve when you were
appointed High Commissioner to Malaysia.
What were some of these ideas?
The first priority was to make sure that we built
on a renewed and strengthened relationship.
A key moment before my time in 2012, when
our then-Prime Minister David Cameron came
to Malaysia, he and (Malaysian) Prime Minister
Najib established a very good relationship, so
my starting position was a strong one. We then
saw in 2015 Prime Minister Cameron come
back to Malaysia to show that commitment
and good relationship at the highest political
level, so what we’ve been focusing on is on
increasing our trade and investment relationship,
building on what we have achieved before but
working even more closely with your Ministry of
International Trade and Industry to look at the
sectors where Britain has particular strength

and Malaysia has particular opportunities. But
it’s not just about what we sell to each other or
what we invest in each other but how we can
collaborate. One of the things I’m proud that I’ve
achieved with my team is building this concept
of partnerships. If I take the digital economy,
which is a priority for the Malaysian government,
as an example, in 2016, I signed, on behalf of
the British government, an MoU with MDEC
(Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation) that
we would work very closely together to scope
out opportunities for our and Malaysia’s digital
sector. We have seen three delegations to the
U.K. to look at our technology and innovation
offer, and last October, we had the largest ever
tech mission – some 45 British companies and
organisations coming to Malaysia to look at
partnerships, joint ventures and investments
in Malaysia.
Come October, you would have been here
for four years, and typically, each posting is
for a four-year period. Any idea yet where
you’ll be going next?
You focus on a four-year plan always knowing
that you will be moving on, but the point is what
you hand over to your successor, so that the
May 2018_InProfile_Vicki Treadell02b.indd 34
successor takes over the baton and then runs
their own race to make sure that we build on what
we have achieved. You asked me the question
what else am I proud of achieving, apart from this
new (MDEC) partnership and collaborative model,
I think education has been a huge strength
and pillar of our bilateral relationship. There is
something like 500,000 Malaysian alumni of
British universities today in Malaysia. We have
maintained Malaysian student interest in going
to Britain such that Malaysian students account
for the second largest foreign student body in the
U.K. – some 18,000 Malaysians are studying in the
U.K. This is second only to China and way ahead
of India and other countries, and that’s part of the
people-to-people ties that we have, the comfort
and the familiarity with each other.
This is why so many Malaysians get on Malaysia
Airlines to fly to the U.K. all the time, whether
for business or pleasure. Some Malaysians just
go back to do the same thing every year, for the
shopping, the theatre, the wonderful heritage that
we have, the natural beauty and landscape of the
Lake District and Peak District, all of that and of
course, some 400,000-450,000 British tourists
come here a year. It’s one of the big destinations
in Southeast Asia for British tourists. This is
something that we want to preserve.
Coming back to education, we are working to
make sure we’re not complacent, that the British
offer remains the preferred offer for Malaysians.
Because it is globally competitive, people can
choose other countries, but we want them to
continue to choose Britain. My team and I have
been working on promoting the modern and
contemporary relevance of Britain because
although we have a history and the people-topeople relationship, why should Britain matter to
Malaysians today? So apart from education, our
trade and investment, the other big issue that
we can work on is partnerships with Malaysia. If
we look at defence and security, what very few
people know about is something we call the
Five Powers Defence Agreement (FPDA), which
is where Britain, Australia and New Zealand
are working with Singapore and Malaysia to
guarantee the defence of Singapore and Malaysia.
We have some British armed services personnel
alongside Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and
Malaysia at the HQ for the FPDA in Butterworth
(in Penang, Malaysia). Every year, we practise
between our armed services so that if the call

My home cooking is more rustic, simple dishes.
I cook all variety of food but obviously, I cook
Asian food, not least because of my own Asian
heritage, and so curries, stir-fry, and like everyone
else, we cook pasta as a quick and easy dish.
Every now and then, I do the full-blown English
roast dinner because you must do that!
Any favourite dish?
I couldn’t say I have a favourite. If I was to boil it
down to two types of food I tend to eat most, I
would say Indian and Chinese. Even when I was
in London last week, the two meals I had out
were in Indian restaurants!
There have been some negative reactions in
the U.K. to the marriage of HRH Prince Harry
and Meghan Markle. What is your opinion
on that? Isn’t it proof of how far Britain has

ever came to defend Malaysia, we know what
our operating procedures are. Equally on cyber
security, we all have a shared concern about the
threat of extremisms and how that might tip
over to terrorism. Thank God, Malaysia has never
experienced the kind of terrorist attacks we have
seen in Britain, but there are people – when you
restrict their space in other geographies – who
might be looking for new areas to perpetrate that
kind of thing. So, homeland security is another
important piece of work that we have been doing
with Malaysia.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I have such a busy work life that if I have a quiet
weekend or an evening to myself, it’s important
to spend it with my husband, who sees very little
of me during the work week. So, catching up with
my husband, catching up with each other’s news,
talking about current events, reading books and
comparing notes. They’re really quite quiet and
peaceful pastimes.
I hear you’re into gastronomy?
Yes, I like to cook. I find cooking therapeutic and
calming, and the results are usually edible. This is
the other thing I like doing during my free time.
May 2018_InProfile_Vicki Treadell02b.indd 35
There are some old-fashioned perceptions of
Britain, (but) the marriage of His Royal Highness
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle actually reflect
what modern Britain is all about. In ordinary
society in Britain, mixed race marriages are not
unusual, not unacceptable, so Britain has come
a very long way since then. Those who might
comment in a negative way do not actually
reflect the majority view in our country. Whatever
people read, Britain is a very open, pluralist
society, where people have all the freedoms of
a democracy, of self-expression in all its forms,
to the extent that even our media write all
sorts of things that in some countries if they
were written about the Prime Minister or the
government, they would find unacceptable. We
can’t say we believe in a free press but then we
clamp down on what the press says. Having the
right laws – there is responsibility with freedom
of expression – that as long as it does not incite
hatred, whether religious, racial or whatever, then
there should be tolerance in the society to allow
for a diversity of opinion. Coming back to your
point, I think the fact that we are seeing this royal
marriage is a cause for celebration and pride
for a country for whom this is just completely
acceptable and normal, and as I often point out
to journalists, when I joined the British Foreign
Service 40 years ago, there were not very many
people who were different, never mind gender. I
remember joining as an 18-year-old, and looking
at the ladder above me, there were no female
ambassadors or very many senior women. It was
a very white Anglo-Saxon hierarchy. Yet someone
like myself – born in Malaysia, Eurasian, family
moved to Britain – that I can return to Malaysia
as the British High Commissioner tells you
what Britain is all about – a country that has no
difficulty with this.
You’ve been in the Foreign and
Commonwealth Office for 40 years now.
That’s a long time. You must really enjoy
what you do.
When I joined the foreign office, I was only
intending to work for about six months, save as
much money as I could and then go off to travel
before going to university, but then I thought
I could have a life of travel if I applied myself
to this career. For example, from KL, there are
so many wonderful places to get to, not just in
Malaysia but beyond. When I think about my
time in India, to be able to explore that country,
or on the other side of the world in New Zealand,
being able to go and visit parts of South Pacific
that you would not ordinarily get to. Even my
first posting overseas to Pakistan, to be able to
go to the remote areas – now because of security
issues are impossible to go to – with the most
amazing scenery that is largely untouched and
undeveloped. These experiences of being able to
travel because of where I am sent are just such
a privilege. ■

Shakespeare’s recently-rebuilt Globe Theatre is
on the south bank of the River Thames because
it was only here that he could perform his funny,
rude and epic plays. Throughout the Middle
Ages, London’s strict laws did not extend to the
south of the river, so the real fun begins only
when you cross London Bridge to Southwark.
Old London Bridge stood from 1209 to 1831 and
was crammed with shops and houses, enlivened
with the severed heads of traitors left rotting on
spikes. Over the centuries, the bridge became so
decrepit that a new one had to be built. Crossing
the new London Bridge, you will have one of the
best views of London and the River Thames as
you begin your journey.

Near today’s London Bridge station and the

pilgrims used to gather in a mood of springtime
excitement before commencing their pilgrimage
to the tomb of Saint Thomas at Canterbury
cathedral, 100 kilometres to the southeast of
London. In 1389, Geoffrey Chaucer wrote The
Canterbury Tales, one of the earliest and most
important works of English literature, about
one such group of pilgrims, and in the first part

Most visitors to the United Kingdom
never leave London but there is another country
beyond the capital city and it’s called England.
So why not hire a car and drive 100 kilometres
south through the counties of Kent and East
Sussex to the seaside town of Brighton, better
known by its sobriquet ‘London-By-The-Sea’.
But as with all the best holidays, the destination
is less important than the journey, and along
your way, you will pass through a slice of
British history, its towns, gorgeous villages and
countryside while following in the footsteps of
ancient pilgrims, trend-setting royalty and their
trend-following subjects. You’ll also be passing
through the part of the world where I grew up.

London grew rapidly during the Industrial
Revolution of the 19th century when railways
and the Underground connected previously
separate villages until everything merged into
one enormous urban whole. It might be hard
to spot the charm of South London as you
drive southwards but so many great cultural
personalities were born here. Charlie Chaplin and
Michael Caine were both born into the poverty
that was Elephant and Castle, named after
an 18th-century inn where coaches changed
their horses. The area is now undergoing the
inevitable London gentrification and property
prices are leaping upwards. Keep going south
and you won’t even realise that you have
actually left London and entered the county of
Kent as you drive through Bromley, where David
Bowie grew up. The Rolling Stones, the iconic
English rock band, came from nearby Dartford.
Leaving London’s urban landscape behind,
you will enter the rural luxuriant green fields,
woodlands and farms of the English countryside
dotted with sheep, cattle and idyllic villages.
Britain is crisscrossed with public footpaths so
you can always leave the main roads, stop the
car and go for a walk in the quiet of the country.
One of the best places for a stopover is just
north of Sevenoaks, where Chaucer’s pilgrims
proceeded eastward along the Pilgrim’s Way, a
footpath along a band of soil that remains dry
all year round and was 3,000 years earlier a
pilgrimage route from the English Channel to the
truly ancient holy site of Stonehenge far to the
west. In Sevenoaks, visit the large Elizabethan
stately home of Knole House and its deer park
where The Beatles made a film for Strawberry
Fields Forever.

of Chaucer’s cast of characters: a noble Knight,
a drunken Miller, the earthy Wife of Bath and
several others.

pilgrims and visitors since the Middle Ages
5. Knole House in Sevenoaks is one of England's
most important and complete historic houses
6. The spa town of Bath is the only place in Britain
that offers a natural hot spring
South of Sevenoaks you will come to Tunbridge
Wells. It’s a modern town by English standards
(early 1600s) and was borne from tourism. Go
to the lowest point in the town where there is
a spring and a delightful arcade of shops called
the Pantiles. Bath is its most famous city but
there are spa towns throughout England, where
people once flocked to drink the health-giving
waters and to promenade with fashionable
society. Spas were especially popular with British
royalty and after King Charles I and later Queen
Victoria visited Tunbridge Wells, their subjects
followed. Now in summertime, you can eat
outside on the Pantiles, while listening to music
being played on the bandstand.
Leaving Tunbridge Wells, you will drive through
some of the most verdant countryside that
England has to offer. The road will dip down and
then rise over soft crests so that lovely vistas
are always possible. This is not a rugged terrain
but something altogether subtler and familiar
in its lyricism. That might be because we are
entering a land of authors. Just before reaching
Crowborough, you will pass a bleak landscape
that looks more like the moors of Scotland than
southern England. This is Ashdown Forest. If
you’ve ever read Winnie the Pooh then you’ll

and of course, A.A. Milne.
In the 18th century, British royalty invented

going to Brighton to dip in the sea. When he
became King George IV, he built for himself the
magnificent Brighton Pavilion, which inspired
the design of Kuala Lumpur’s Railway Station
built in 1900. With the British Empire beginning
to grow into Asia, those faraway sights became
the inspiration for Brighton Pavilion, which is
filled with an exotic blend of India and China.
Brighton Pavilion is a unique experience and one
of Britain’s must-visit destinations. A century
after King George’s reign, Brighton fell into a
steep decline, becoming notorious for gangsters
and poverty, made famous by Graham Greene
in his novel Brighton Rock. In recent years, new
residents such as DJ Fatboy Slim have revived
the coastal city, making it an alternative to
London, with a laid-back twist and a tight
network of pedestrian streets called The Lanes
teeming with shops, cafés and restaurants.

Brits have always had a passion for theatre,
which is hardly surprising as it is woven into their
national identity. There’s the greatest playwright
of all time, William Shakespeare, who created
so much of the theatre tradition. There are also
greats like Sir Laurence Olivier, and many of the
British stars you see on the silver screen today
got their start treading the boards. This history
and infrastructure creates some of the best
entertainment you can find, drawing in native
Londoners as well as star-struck tourists.
The first place they all stop, of course, is the West
End. Shaftesbury Avenue holds a mesmerising
strip of top shows, starting with the immensely
popular Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. We
then wander down the stretch of popular shows
such as the long-running Thriller – Live and the
new hit musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
If classic drama is more your thing, head to the
South Bank, where you’ll find two theatre giants
standing by the river.
1. Lin-Manuel Miranda's historical hip-hop musical
Hamilton has been nominated for the most awards
at Olivier, the U.K.'s most prestigious theatre
awards, just months after debuting in December
At one end, Britain’s National Theatre is a
concrete behemoth that produces some of the
most talked-about plays in the world. Actors
Bryan Cranston, Ralph Fiennes and Andrew
Garfield have all starred on The National’s stage,
while a 2007 production of War Horse has toured
the world and inspired a Steven Spielberg film.
At the other end of the South Bank is
Shakespeare’s Globe, a painstaking
reproduction of the original Globe Theatre,
where Shakespeare’s plays were first shown
to the public. Built in 1997, this faithful
reconstruction allows fans to sit or stand and
watch Shakespeare’s works as they might have
been seen four hundred years ago (if you’re after
something a little more dynamic, The Royal
Shakespeare Company in Stratford-Upon-Avon is
a couple of hours away by train).
Farther down The Thames, the newest kid on the
block is the picturesque Bridge Theatre. Nestled
beside HMS Belfast and overlooked by Tower
Bridge, it’s the brainchild of former National
Theatre Artistic Director Nicholas Hytner, who
has brought some famous friends along for
the ride. Having already produced sold-out
productions of Young Marx and Julius Caesar,
the director of Oscar-winning Three Billboards
Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Martin McDonagh, will
bring his new play A Very, Very, Very Dark Matter
to the theatre in October, starring beloved British
actor Jim Broadbent.
Expensive, star-led productions not your thing?

Getting a ticket for a West End show has

New York’s Broadway, Central London’s theatre
district is thick with history. There has never been
a better time to dive into the city’s theatre scene.

vibrant fringe scene, there is something to suit

Lin-Manuel Miranda.
If that last name sounds familiar, then you
should be familiar with the first of our must-see
shows while visiting London’s theatre scene.
Having rocked Broadway with its contemporary
take on American history, Hamilton came to the
Victoria Palace Theatre late last year and is still
the only place to see the production outside of
America. Miranda himself collaborated with West
End titan and Les Misérables creator Cameron
Mackintosh to bring the show to London with
a new cast that is every bit as exciting as its
American equivalent. With universal five-star
reviews and a devoted fan base, it won’t be easy
to find a ticket, but a breath-taking experience
awaits if you do.

Theatre Secrets
Tips for getting the most out of
London theatre.
n The TKTS booth in Leicester
Square offers a great chance to get
day tickets for West End shows at
discounted prices. Get there in the
morning for the best deals.
n It might be tempting to splurge
6
7
on Premium seats, but the view is
usually just as good from ‘Band A’
seats, at around half the price.
n Government-subsidised theatres
such as The National Theatre often
have discount ticket schemes for
certain age groups. When planning
your visit, take a look at their
website for the best deals.
n Keep an eye out for flash sales
of “Rush” tickets, where theatres
often have limited amounts of
great tickets for as little as GBP10
(RM55). Rush tickets started on
Broadway and are gradually being
adopted by most U.K. theatres.
8
n“Sold out” rarely means sold out.
Don’t give up! If there’s a show
you’re desperate to see, keep
calling their box office to see if
any returned tickets have become
available. Perseverance is key.
BRINKHOFF/MOEGENBURG
n If you’re looking to squeeze as
much theatre as possible into your
trip, most shows usually have at
least two daytime performances
a week.
n Avoid ticket agencies if you can,
as these companies tend to add a
large booking fee.

Preserving A
Botanical Legacy
Kew’s iconic Temperate House opens after a
five-year major restoration.

goingplacesmagazine.com | 44 | May 2018
By the turn of the century, botanists had
all but given up hope of finding any remaining
Dombeya mauritiana trees in the wild, as the
last specimen had been found in Mauritius in
1976. Sightings — and news of sightings — of this
beautiful tree with its pendant pink flowers in its
native habitat had dwindled, and the tree was
considered extinct.
So, when news filtered down of a possible
sighting in the midst of a virtually impenetrable
guava thicket in the centre of the island,
Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew horticulturalists
collaborated with a local team and fought
their way through the jungle to find it. Imagine
their surprise when instead of a small shrub,
they found a 10-metre-tall tree! Kew’s plant
guru Carlos Magdalena took some cuttings
and successfully propagated them — and now
visitors from all over the world can view this
extremely rare treasure in the newly reopened
Temperate House at Kew Gardens.
And, naturally, the environment itself is
amazingly beautiful.
Intrepid Victorian horticulturalists would open
their eyes wide in wonder at the inroads both
science and engineering have forged at the
“new” glasshouse. Around 400 people laboured
for five years to painstakingly renovate 15,000
panes of glass; mend and restored wooden
window frames; stripped down the structure
to its skeleton of wrought and cast iron and
steel; then repainted it with four different coats
specially designed to protect the metal work
from corrosion.
A new heating system utilising a biomass boiler
fed with U.K.-sourced wood pellets keeps the

This is just one of many success stories at the
Gardens, where horticulturalists regularly ‘save’
species from extinction, often resorting to
highly technical propagation methods, including
cloning. Once they are saved, they are nurtured
in the same sort of environment from whence
they came.
Visitors can now view such plants, trace their
provenance and follow their histories in the
recently restored Victorian glasshouse backing
onto the world-famous arboretum at Kew. Called
the Temperate House, it was the world’s largest
glasshouse when it was originally built in 1863
adjacent to the Thames; it is reopening this
month after a five-year restoration project that
cost GBP41 million (RM225 million).
Housing 10,000 plants, some of which
are extremely rare and threatened, it is
simultaneously a temple of plant learning and a
showcase of some of our planet’s spellbinding
biodiversity. Stories of plant survival from
temperate regions around the world — from the
Mediterranean, Africa, Australia, New Zealand,
South and Central America, Asia and island floras
— are both inspirational and educational.

But even though the shell is wondrous to behold,
it is the flora that captivates. Whether you are an
amateur botanist, a scientist or simply a person
who is interested in the natural world, this living,
breathing classroom cannot fail to delight.
Before the renovation, 500 plants were removed
and housed in a temporary nursery, where
they were nurtured, progagated and grown in a
lengthy and delicate process that involved new
science, dedication and time. Now, an incredible
10,000 have gone back into the glasshouse.
Stories of some of these unusual plants that
Kew has rescued and the journeys they have
taken to their new home are spellbinding.
Take the Tree Daisy (Cylindrocline lorencei), for
example. Seeds from the last wild plant had
been collected, but would not germinate using
conventional methods, so Kew’s scientists
turned to micropropagation. First, they identified
a small number of living cells contained within
the embryos of seeds from one plant. Next,
some of these living cells were extracted and
cultured. Slowly but steadily, they multiplied
under sterile conditions in the laboratory. After
several years of patient work, three clones were
successfully reared and may now be viewed in
the Temperate House.
In contrast to the sumptuous, romantic
surroundings of the Temperate House, these
plants also showcase how humankind is
allowing them to fall prey to a variety of threats
— educating us about their potential and how
important it is to prevent them from dying out.
After all, they may hold the secrets for survival
or may be the custodians of potential cures for
cancer, ebola or other life-threatening diseases.

The Venue
The venue for the wedding, at noon on 19 May,
will be the stunning St. George’s Chapel in
Windsor, considered one of the most beautiful
examples of late-medieval Gothic architecture
in England. With a rich and colourful history,
the ornate Chapel features lavish decorations in
marble, stained glass, mosaic and bronze. The
venue, which can seat 800, is no stranger to the
Royal Family. Prince Harry was christened there
as a baby, while Prince Charles and Camilla,
the Duchess of Cornwall, had their marriage
blessing there in 2005. It will also be the venue
for the wedding of Prince Harry’s cousin,
Princess Eugenie of York, when she marries Jack
Brooksbank later this year.
The Service
Although the venue is steeped in tradition,
the couple are very clear that their wedding
celebrations will “reflect the characters of the
bride and groom”. They have been closely
involved in choosing the music, hymns and
prayers for the traditional ceremony. The
Dean of Windsor will marry the couple, and
the Archbishop of Canterbury will officiate
the marriage vows. In anticipation of the
marriage, Meghan was baptised on 6 March in
the Chapel Royal at St. James Palace, where
her future father-in-law Prince Charles and the
Duchess of Cornwall attended the baptism as
representatives of the crown. She was later
confirmed into the Anglican faith, allowing
her to join her soon-to-be husband at Holy
Communion.
The Bouquet
While speculation is rife around a hundred
details about the wedding, one thing is almost
certain. Following a tradition that dates to the
wedding of Queen Victoria’s oldest daughter,
Princess Victoria, a sprig of myrtle will form part
of the bouquet. It should be no surprise that
the myrtle plant is a symbol of love, as well as
the Hebrew symbol for marriage. Apparently,
the royal myrtle plant was given to Victoria by
her husband Albert’s grandmother and it has
featured in royal weddings ever since. There’s
also speculation that despite Meghan’s love of
roses and peonies, her bouquet will also include
some sprays of lily of the valley. The arching
stems of fragrant white bell-shaped flowers will
be seen as a tribute to Prince Harry’s late mother
Princess Diana, as future sister-in-law Catherine,
the Duchess of York’s bouquet also was.
The Ring
The iconic sapphire and diamond ring that
Princess Diana wore at her engagement now sits
on the hand of Catherine, but Markle will sparkle,
especially with the engagement ring that Prince
Harry designed himself, using gems from the
jewellery collection of his late mother. The trilogy
engagement ring, made by court jewellers
Cleave and Company, features a cushion-cut 2
diamond from Botswana as its centrepiece. Its
yellow gold band – reportedly a favourite of
Meghan’s – will go nicely with the wedding ring,
which tradition dictates will be fashioned from

Centuries-old traditions will take centre
stage as the world looks forward to the
wedding of Prince Harry and his bride, American
actress Meghan Markle. It will be the most
important day of their lives, but it’s already
clear that far from being a sombre and official
occasion, the couple want a wedding that is
focused on fun, love, celebration and joy that
everyone can share in!

We might have already seen her in a wedding

Meghan has hinted that Rachel’s ballerina-style
gown was not quite her taste. Professing to like
something more “whimsical and romantic”, the
modern and elegant bride-to-be will definitely
bring her own style to the fore. Inbal Dror, a
leading Israeli dress designer, famous for her
exquisite lace and elegant silhouettes, has
apparently been asked to submit ideas to the
Palace, but hot contenders include Meghan’s
favourite Turkish-Canadian designer Erdem
Moralıoğlu, who is already a hit with the royals.
While the designer is traditionally revealed only
on the day of the wedding, also in the running
to design the wedding dress is the Australianoriginated, London-based haute couture fashion
house Ralph & Russo, whose design Meghan
debuted in one of her engagement snaps.

The Love Nest
The couple will live in Nottingham Cottage,
which is tucked away in the grounds of
Kensington Palace (fondly referred to as KP by
Princess Diana). The two-bedroom cottage is
reportedly next to Ivy Cottage, which Princess
Eugenie and her fiancée Jack will occupy. While
it is the smallest home on the 17th-century
estate, it boasts reception rooms designed by
Sir Christopher Wren, one of the greatest English
architects ever, who was also responsible
for designing St Paul’s Cathedral. Previous
occupants of the cottage include Prince Harry’s
aunt, Princess Diana’s sister, Lady Jane Fellowes,
and her husband Sir Robert Fellowes, who was
the Queen’s former secretary. Catherine and
Prince William will not be far away. They live
in the 20-room Apartment 1A, situated inside
the Palace. Meghan and Prince Harry will no
doubt also have a standing invitation to the
private Balmoral estate in the summer and the
Sandringham estate at Christmas.
The Bride
There’s no denying that Meghan is bringing a
breath of fresh air (and a touch of rebellion) to
the Royal Family. While Catherine has toed the
line with her traditional take on fashion and her
formal demeanour, the pressure seems to be
off Meghan to fit into the royal box. Breaking
protocol from day one, when she appeared at
her engagement announcement in bare legs (the
Royal Family is not allowed to show cleavage and
must never go bare legged!), the risqué mesh-top
she wore in her formal engagement photos also
raised eyebrows. Other fashion firsts include
messy buns, pant suits on formal occasions, and
a casual cross-body purse, which was a royal first.

many public displays of affection are

Syomirizwa
Gupta
Is Meghan going to pick a
traditional or trendy dress? Will she
opt for something simple? Or being
the glamorous actress that she is
(or was), maybe a showstopper
design is more her thing?
When her character on the TV
series Suits got married, Meghan
had loads to say about her style.
She stated then that classic and
simple were the name of her
game. That, as well as the
addition of a modern twist.
“I have the luxury of wearing
beautiful pieces of clothing every
day for work, so my personal style
– wedding or not – is very pareddown and relaxed,” Meghan stated
in a 2016 interview.
Here, we got three Malaysian
designers to give us their take on
the royal wedding dress:
Modern Sensuality
Nurita Harith’s design for Meghan
is effortlessly elegant. The offshoulder gown offers a sexy vibe,
as well as highlights her svelte
figure. A subtle button detailing
gives it a trendy feel.
Nurita explains that royal wedding
dresses have always been
traditional. They often come paired
with voluminous cuts and lace.
However, she would like to see
Meghan wear something that fits
her personality.
“Meghan is a woman with taste.
She is a very passionate person –
yet she has remained subtle with

her selections in the past. She
exudes modern glamour on the
red carpet despite choosing classic
pieces,” she adds.

Timeless Beauty
For Syomirizwa Gupta, it is
Meghan’s Hollywood mystique that
captures his imagination. Yet, he
prefers she wears a really demure
wedding dress and not something
too over-the-top or trendy.
“I would say a timeless style
would be best. When it comes
to weddings, I like my brides to
be able to spot themselves in
photographs 20 years later and not
think that they somehow looked
ridiculous,” he states.
Clean, chic and altogether regal,
Syomirizwa’s design has a soft
silhouette – plus a hint of vintage
feel. It is borderline conservative,
but still provides that pizzazz
Meghan has come to be known
and loved for.

said, he expects she will keep to
tradition and not stray too far from
the Royal Family’s wishes.
The dress he came up with for
Meghan is one that he describes
as “what a modern princess would
wear for her big day”. His design
seamlessly infuses contemporary
appeal with quiet grace.
“I find her very confident in carrying
herself and in what she’s wearing
publicly. I think she represents the
future of the British monarchy, and
as such, she requires a modern
wedding dress,” he points out. ■

From crockery emblazoned with official
portraits to solar-powered toys with the queen’s
characteristic wave, Britain’s monarchy is big
business. And that royal economy, normally
catering to tourists and enthusiasts, kicks into
high gear around major events. “It’s a flash of
colour in a rather gray world,” said Emma, the
eponymous founder of the ceramics company.
Britain’s royal family likely contributed an
estimated GBP1.8 billion (RM9.9 billion) to the
country’s economy last year, according to Brand
Finance, a consulting firm. The bulk of that was
GBP550 million (RM3 billion) from tourism.
Brand Finance estimates that travellers in town
for Prince Harry’s wedding, scheduled for this
month, will bring an additional GBP500 million
(RM2.8 billion) this year. Roughly one-tenth
of that amount is expected to come from
merchandise sales.
Enthusiastic collectors like Margaret Tyler are
a discerning audience. A dedicated royalist,
Margaret, 73, has filled her home in northwest
London with commemorative items, including a
copy of the Issa dress that Kate Middleton wore
during the announcement of her engagement
to Prince William, and a little glass dish with a
picture of Queen Elizabeth II that started her
collection. One of her rooms is dedicated solely
to Princess Diana, and another to the queen,
which she rents out for 75 pounds a night.
Insurers have valued her collection at GBP40,000
(RM220,000). “I would like nice proper bone
china stuff,” Margaret said of the merchandise
surrounding the latest royal wedding. “I don’t
buy everything. I’ve got to like it.”
Royal fever is a capitalist tradition in Britain.
Royal Crown Derby, a porcelain manufacturer,
has been making commemorative products
since the coronation of King George III in 1760.
Jan Hugo, a 59-year-old collector with 10,000
pieces who is based in New South Wales,
Australia, has teapots dating back to Queen
Victoria’s reign. “I think they just look for an
excuse to be able to do it, every time there’s
a birth, wedding, engagement, anniversary,
anything,” Jan said.
When Prince William married in 2011, the
high-end British department store Fortnum &
Mason sold a Wedding Breakfast Blend tea
from Kenya, where he proposed. The Legothemed amusement park Legoland made a

The cameras had barely finished flashing
on the newly engaged Prince Harry and Meghan
Markle. But Emma Bridgewater, a British
ceramics manufacturer, was already making a
mug to commemorate the royal moment. The
next week, just under 1,000 mugs — with “Harry
& Meghan are engaged” and the date of the
announcement on them — were on sale. They
retailed online for around GBP20 pounds (RM110)
and sold out within 24 hours.

said Steven Rowley, Royal Crown Derby’s sales
and marketing director.
Emma Bridgewater’s company has sold more
than 35,000 pieces of pottery based around
Prince William’s wedding and has produced
15 different commemorative mugs for events
ranging from Prince Andrew and Sarah
Ferguson’s wedding in 1986, to the birth of
Prince William’s second child, Princess Charlotte,
in 2015. The company has annual sales of about
GBP20 million (RM110 million).
As royal fever grows, the company plans to
hire an additional 10-15 people. It is also
hoping to tap into heightened interest in the
U.S. — Meghan is American — to push its
products in places like Bloomingdale’s and
Bergdorf Goodman.
The merchandise this time around is extensive.
Emma has another mug and tea towel planned
for the wedding, as well as a mug to celebrate
the third child of Prince William and Catherine,
the Duchess of Cambridge.
Royal Crown Derby has a series of designs in
the works, like a heart-shaped tray for GBP75
(RM400) and a GBP150 (RM825) octagonal plate
finished in gold. The company began planning
four months before the engagement was
officially announced as gossip swirled in the
British press. It is now waiting for specifics, such
as whether Meghan will use her given name,
Rachel, to put the finishing touches on its fine
bone china products. “One of the things that
the collectors insist is that it has that level of
information and detail applied to the design,”
May 2018_Explore_British Memorabilia02.indd 54
Tour operators and travel agencies are also
gearing up. British Tours is putting together
potential itineraries. The company already runs
“Kate and William Tours,” which follow the
footsteps of the royal couple, visiting the town
where they went to college and Westminster
Abbey, where they married.
Olivia Basic, a tour planner at the company, said
the themed tours for Prince Harry and Meghan
could include upscale nightclubs where the prince
— known in his earlier years for partying heavily
— has been spotted. Others offer a chance to
catch a glimpse of the wedding itself. Two days
after Prince Harry’s engagement was announced,
the luxury travel company Noteworthy started
scouting locations near the wedding site, St.
George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
Noteworthy is looking to replicate a similar
experience during Prince William’s wedding.

Back then, it hired a place opposite

paid GBP500 (RM2,750) each — could watch the
bride and groom as they arrived and left the
church. For the celebrations commemorating
Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee, 200
people paid about GBP300 (RM1,650) each to
spend the day on the HMS Belfast, a historic
warship, to have prime position to watch the
monarch’s flotilla pageant.
Noteworthy has already secured a location for
guests to watch Prince Harry’s wedding. But the
managing director of Noteworthy, Nicola Butler,
declined to say where. She said, however, that
it had a view over Windsor Castle’s Henry VIII
Gate and was “a space that a high-net-worth
individual from the U.S. would be comfortable in.”
“This,” she said, “is really big for us.” ■

Our definitive guide to the best London restaurants
serving classic British fare.
Words Hugh Thomas
Ask the average British citizen about their
favourite part of their national cuisine, and they’ll
invariably point to their nearest curry house,
where the focus is on tongue-flinching heat and
packaged poppadoms rather than flavour, or to
the chippy in the next town, where the fish is
frozen, the batter is brought in, and the servers
don’t care.
goingplacesmagazine.com | 56 | May 2018
It all adds up to a culinary reputation Britain
has struggled to shrug off. But that is certainly
less the case now as British people increasingly
become more explorative with their food
choices, while newer restaurants dip into their
heritage beyond the usual meat and two veg.
Right now, British food is in a good place, and
London’s restaurants provide the best places to
experience it.
Rules
Supposedly London’s oldest restaurant, Rules
opened in 1798. A lot has been added to the
wall hangings in the intervening 220 years,
but much is the same – ale is still served in
silver tankards, the bar and dining rooms are
as ornate as people once liked them to be, and
pies and oysters continue to be a main feature
on the menu. Speaking of menu favourites, the
rib of beef – I was once told by the MD – has
probably never come off. What was a favourite
dining venue for Charles Dickens and King
Edward VII goes beyond being a novelty for
tourists – Rules’ reputation for its food should
be just as significant.

Hawksmoor
Once a religious tradition to break the week’s
fast, the Sunday roast is an iconic dish in modern
Britain. It’s widely thought that Blacklock, a
meat-centric independent restaurant, does
the city’s – if not Britain’s – best Sunday roast.
It’s a solid contender, but between you and

Quo Vadis
Quo Vadis is as old as Britain’s current queen.
If she were to visit, if it wasn’t for the room
named after Karl Marx (he was a frequenter to
the restaurant), or the fact that, like so much of
Soho, it was formerly a brothel, she’d very much
approve. Food is as British as the enormous
Union Jack fluttering outside – ‘pie of the day’
is central to the menu, which features other
classics like kedgeree and sticky toffee pudding.
The latter, along with the smoked eel sandwich,
are signature dishes that mustn’t be passed up
on anyone’s first visit.

St John
Look at any successful head chef or
restaurateur’s CV, and it’s likely a stint at St John
is on there. Founder Fergus Henderson is just
May 2018_Explore_British Food.indd 58
as recognisable as he has helped popularise the
philosophy of going the whole hog by eating
every part of the animal, from nose to tail. Due
to French terminology on St John’s menu, some
question whether we can legitimately call the
food British – Fergus’ cookbook even calls his
repertoire a ‘kind of’ British cooking – while
others will posit that the food and the thinking
offer enough references to Britain’s culture to
warrant the label.

Max’s Sandwich Shop
The Wall Street Journal once described the
sandwich, coined in the 1700s by the 4th Earl
of Sandwich, as Britain’s biggest contribution
to gastronomy. Are they having a laugh? Not if
they’ve visited Max’s Sandwich Shop, which is
bringing the humble sarnie into the 21st century.
Contrary to the name, it’s actually more of a
restaurant. You’ll see why – large fillings such
as the ham hock with fried egg, Piccalilli and
shoestring potatoes necessitate tables and
greaseproof paper to help ensure it all goes in
your mouth, not down your shirt.

Holborn Dining Room
The pie is such a celebrated part of British
culture that we’ve named an entire week of
the year after it. For Holborn Dining Room
chef Calum Franklin, it’s a national obsession
that’s fed into a personal one. Leading a team
of 32 chefs, he makes decorative filled pastries
more resemblant of porcelain ornaments than
pies. Sure, the techniques he uses are similar
to those of French pastry chefs of yore, but

Rochelle Canteen
As the name might suggest, the food at Rochelle
Canteen isn’t fussy. Rather, it’s rustic, maybe a
bit rough round the edges, but most definitely
the antithesis of the prettily arranged dishes
people clamour for in Mayfair a short jaunt away.
This is all part of Rochelle Canteen’s charm.
There’s leek and potato soup. Stewed apples
with meringue and cream. Venison pie. Oxtail
casserole and mash. None of which are far off
the dishes you’d have at the family dinner table,
but done better than mum could.
arnoldandhenderson.com/rochelle-ica
followed, and if you wanted a table, you’d have
to book months in advance. Two years on, and
while the phone isn’t as busy, the largely British
menu of ‘this is how it’s meant to be’ food is
still just as good. Set aside some time for the
11-course menu and it might be the best few
hours you’ll spend in London.

Poppie’s
Sweetings
If you insist on having one of Britain’s national
dishes, seek out Poppies. Unlike most fish
and chip shops so common on U.K. high
streets, cod and haddock are sourced from
the legendary Billingsgate fish market (that is
to say, thoughtfully and sustainably), filleted
by Poppie’s in-house fishmonger, and fried to
order. It results in probably the tastiest and most
environmentally conscious battered fish you’ll
find in the capital.
poppiesfishandchips.co.uk
At 130 years young, Sweetings is the oldest
London restaurant specialising in seafood.
It does so without the frills (would you like
your Dover sole grilled or poached?), and is
customarily followed up with classic national
desserts like spotted dick and bread and butter
pudding. A self-anointed ‘lunchtime institution’,
don’t be surprised to be rubbing shoulders here
with suited city workers sipping Black Velvet
cocktails (Guinness with champagne) on a
weekday afternoon. ■

Anglo
Anglo’s owners only wanted to set up a small,
quiet bistro. But within the first few weeks
of opening, the restaurant garnered five-star
reviews from the capital’s meanest food critics.

THE MINI
From George Harrison’s 1966
Radford Mini de Ville decorated in
psychedelic style to its cinematic
debut in The Italian Job, the Mini
has been declared the “auto de
facto face of the U.K.” Produced
by the British Motor Corporation,
it influenced a generation of car
makers and was voted one of
the most influential cars of the
20th century.
COLLAPSIBLE
BABY BUGGY
LONDON
UNDERGROUND MAP
In 1931, Harry Beck
consolidated dozens of
confusing maps into the
iconic Tube map so beloved
by visitors and locals today.
Described as “a cross between
an electric circuit diagram and
a Mondrian painting”, the
London Underground map is
best known for revolutionising
transport design.
They say necessity is the mother of
invention. When Owen Maclaren’s
daughter complained that she
couldn’t take her baby’s pram on
a plane, the retired aeronautical
engineer and test pilot (who
worked on the Spitfire – a British
fighter aircraft used by the Royal
Air Force and other Allied countries
around World War II) used his
expertise to create a lightweight
buggy that could be folded up.
In 1967, Maclaren started to
manufacture the Maclaren B-01.
Since then, the stylish pushchairs
have been used by millions,
including royals and celebrities,
with the prototype making it into
the Museum of Modern Art’s
design collection.
CADBURY
With that distinctive purple
wrapper, curly font and “glass and
a half” logo, Cadbury’s was the
brand of chocolate that many grew
up with. John Cadbury founded
his legendary confectionary firm
in 1824 in Birmingham, working
with JS Fry & Sons (who invented
the chocolate bar in 1847). Today,
Cadbury is the second-largest
confectionery brand in the world,
after Mars.

WEDGEWOOD
The next time you eat something
off a stunning Wedgewood
china plate, remember its
inventor, Josiah Wedgewood. An
established potter in Stoke-OnTrent, the earthenware he created
in 1765 so impressed Queen
Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz,
she gave him official permission to
call it “Queen’s Ware”.
CAT’S EYES
In 1934, Yorkshire road contractor
Percy Shaw was driving home
one foggy night when the sudden
flash from the eyes of a stray cat
on the side of the road caused
him to slow down to see where
the road turned. It inspired him to
create the reflective road safety
device which, with an estimated
500 million cat’s eyes in the U.K.,
guides many drivers safely home.
DYSON VACUUM CLEANER
First invented by British designer
Hubert Cecil Booth in 1901, the
humble vacuum cleaner was
transformed by design icon
James Dyson into a high-end
household product. Confessing
in the 1970s that conventional
cleaners irritated him, 15 years
and 5,000 prototypes later, he
created the bagless vacuum
cleaner, and the rest, as they
say, is history.

WORLD WIDE WEB
ATM MACHINES
Scottish inventor John ShepherdBarron came up with the idea of
a hole in the wall that dispensed
cash, while sitting in the bath!
He sold the idea to Barclays
Bank, which installed the world’s
first machine outside its Enfield
branch in 1967. Today, there are
over three million cash machines
across the globe!
The “www” that you see in every
URL stands for “world wide web”,
invented by British computer
scientist Tim Berners-Lee.
One of the most altruistic designers
of modern time, Berners-Lee
wanted an open platform that
would allow everyone to share
information across geographic and
cultural boundaries. The web went
live in 1991, with the first page
explaining how to search and
how to set up a site.
SODA WATER
The next time you sip a
refreshing mojito or a Tom
Collins, remember to thank
Joseph Priestley, who made
the startling invention of soda
water. Working in a university
lab in Leeds in 1767, Priestley
figured out a way to infuse
water with carbon bubbles,
thus creating fizzy water.

Thames. With more than 1,000

LONDON BRIDGE
BIG BEN
Big Ben is the name of the
largest of the clock’s five bells,
which chimed for the first time
in 1859. One of England’s most
popular tourist attractions, the
13-tonne behemoth is housed
in the 96-metre tall Clock
Tower, renamed The Elizabeth
Tower in 2012.
There have been many versions
of London Bridge since the
original Roman crossing –
made from wood – was built
in 50 AD. Today, the 269-metre
bridge spanning the River
Thames is one of the busiest in
the city. The good news is it’s
not falling down.
LOCH NESS
Even if you don’t catch sight of the
famous monster Nessie, which
folklore claims resides in its icy
depth, the sheer beauty of this
freshwater loch is astounding.
The second largest of the Scottish
lochs, its great depth of 230
metres means it contains more
freshwater than all the lakes in
England and Wales combined.
THE ROYAL PAVILION
When George, Prince of Wales,
commissioned John Nash to
transform a modest villa into a
magnificent oriental palace, the
“exotic mad house” that emerged
stunned everyone. Years later,
the opulent style and elaborate
furnishings of the Pavilion still offer
a sight to behold.
KEW GARDENS
Arguably one of the most
renowned botanical gardens,
this UNESCO World Heritage
site is home to millions of
exotic plants and boasts the
world’s largest greenhouse.
From carnivorous cuttings
to ornamental orchids, the
Gardens, created in 1759, have
made a significant contribution
to the world of botany.
THE GIANT’S
CAUSEWAY
HARRODS
Offering over one million
square feet of luxury goods, this
London retail mecca, with its
distinguished green and gold
bags, attracts over 15 million
visitors a year. Selling everything
from iconic teddy bears to gold
ingots, if Harrods doesn’t stock
it, it’s not worth having.

Technically in the U.K. rather
than in Britain, you’ll forgive
us when you visit this area of
mind boggling beauty. The
60-million-year-old Giant’s
Causeway is the aftermath
of a volcanic activity, which
created over 40,000 nearperfect hexagon-shaped
basalt columns, interlocked
like a giant puzzle. Nature or
as the locals tell it, the result
of a fight between the giants
that lived in the area,
you decide.
THE TOWER OF LONDON
Built by William the Conqueror
towards the end of 1066, the
tower has over the centuries
been used as a royal residence,
an armoury, a treasury, a zoo,
the Royal Mint, a records office
and the scene of the execution of
Anne Boleyn, the second wife of
King Henry VIII. Till today, it also
houses the Crown Jewels, which
includes 23,578 jewels, and the
Imperial State Crown.
BATH
This elegant town in South West
England, with its neo-classical
Palladian buildings, was founded
by the Romans as a thermal
spa because of the natural
hot springs running under the
ground. Today, you can walk in
the steps of the Romans and see
how they lived in the town of
Aquae Sulis centuries ago.

SPOTTED DICK
It’s a name that only the Brits
could love, but this classic
– consisting of a steamed
sponge made with suet, citrus
zest and currants – is the
ultimate comfort dish when
served with lashings of hot
custard. Beloved by Charles
Dickens, it was mentioned in
A Christmas Carol and dates
back to the 1840s.
THE SUNDAY ROAST
The roast became popular
during the reign of King Henry
VII in 1485. Consisting of roasted
meat (traditionally beef), roasted
potato and accompaniments
such as Yorkshire pudding,
stuffing, vegetables and gravy,
it is the very heart of Sunday
lunch. The Yeoman of the
Guard are, till today, known as
“beefeaters” because they were
permitted to eat as much beef
as they wanted from the
king’s table!
TOAD IN THE HOLE
FISH & CHIPS
Joseph Malin opened the first
fish and chip shop in London in
1860, selling ‘‘fish fried in the
Jewish fashion’’. Since then,
cod or haddock, encased in
golden crispy batter and eaten
with hot crisps and mushy
peas, has become a classic!
ETON MESS
This gorgeous British dessert,
first mentioned in 1893, is
thought to come from the
hallowed halls of Eton College,
where a strawberry, meringue
and cream pudding was dropped
at an Eton vs Harrow cricket
match, as it was carried into
the dining hall. Rather than
disappoint the hungry hordes,
the messy contents were
scooped off the floor and
served, to great delight, and
the Eton mess was born.
Despite its gruesome
name, there are no toads,
we promise – just delicious
grilled sausages poking
out of a panful of crispy
Yorkshire batter, served
with roasted onion gravy.
Not one to miss!

CULLEN SKINK
It’s not the most appetising
name for a soup, but with
heartening ingredients like
comforting potatoes, smoked
fish and lashings of cream, it’s
just the thing for a winter meal.
Taking its name from Cullen,
a fishing town on the Moray
Firth on the northeast coast
of Scotland, you can bet it saw
many a local through
a cold night!

HAGGIS
An acquired taste and beloved of
the Scottish poet Robbie Burns,
who immortalised it in a poem
in 1786, haggis is a robust and
savoury meat pudding, made
of sheep’s offal mixed with suet,
oatmeal, onion and spices, then
boiled in a bag. Traditionally
served with mashed “neeps
and tatties” (swedes and
potatoes) and a dram (Scotch
whisky), it is a favourite at Burns
Night every year.
Sometimes called a “fry-up”,
the full English breakfast
dates back to the Middle Ages,
when it was served late in the
morning and had to sustain
one till dinner. These days, it
consists of fried eggs, sausages,
crispy bacon, grilled tomatoes,
mushrooms, fried bread and
often a slice of white or black
pudding, washed down with a
cup of tea. Look out for regional
versions that add soda bread
(Irish), tattie scone (Scottish),
laverbread (Welsh) and hog
pudding (Cornwall).
YORKSHIRE PUDDING
It might be called a pudding,
but a Yorkshire (dating as far
back as 1737) is one of the
heroes of Sunday lunch, and
is meant to be eaten with
gravy. Light, crispy and rising
to lofty heights, the Yorkshire
is traditionally made from a
batter of flour, eggs and water,
cooked in the fat from the
dripping pan, while the meat
roasts in the oven.

Barangkali inilah istana paling terkenal di dunia.
Istana Buckingham di London pernah digunakan
sebagai mahkamah pada 1973. Istana ini juga
pernah menjadi kediaman rasmi pertama untuk
Ketua Negara, Ratu Victoria.
Windsor Castle
Standing proudly over the town, Windsor
Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle
in the world, and luckily enough for those
travelling to the U.K., it can be visited all
year round.
Founded by William the Conqueror during the
11th century, it has been home to 39 monarchs,
many of whom are buried in the Chapel. The
chapel itself has intricate stonework and
beautiful stained-glass windows. The wedding
between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
will take place there this month.
Those visiting the castle will be impressed
by its Grand Reception Room, with its large
chandeliers. It was severely damaged during
the great fire in 1992 but has been well
restored. Another highlight is Queen Mary’s
doll house, which was built for the Queen
around 1921-1924. The house is now on display
in a large glass case, allowing you to see its
intricate attention to detail. The house even
has working electricity!
It’s also worth visiting the grounds of the
castle and walking the ‘Long Walk’ into
Windsor Great Park. The Queen herself is a
fan, often riding horses in the area.

The 16th-century palace, situated on the

Thames, is most famous for its important
resident: Henry VIII. The King would
hold lavish banquets and decorate it with
expensive art.
Hampton Court Palace
Setiap tahun, istana ini akan menampilkan

It’s thought that the ghost of Henry’s wife
Queen Jane haunts the palace, as does his
fifth wife Catherine Howard. Jane died in
childbirth, while Catherine was beheaded
at the Tower of London.
Kediaman Osborne
Make sure to stop by Hampton Court’s royal
chapel, which has been in continuous use for
450 years. The chapel itself is stunning with
a bright blue ceiling painted with gold stars

Sundays can attend church services, including

banquets and speeches and are decorated with
paintings by Rembrandt and Poussin.
Every year, the palace adds a new exhibition, and
this year’s will celebrate the 70th birthday of the
Prince of Wales. Past exhibitions have included
the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress.
A visit to the palace finishes with a walk
along the south side of the palace’s garden,
where guests can stop for a cup of tea and a
slice of cake.
Osborne House
If you want to truly understand Queen
Victoria, the current queen’s great-greatgrandmother, then you have to visit her
holiday home on the Isle of Wight. Victoria
is often associated with Britain’s industrial
expansion and economic progress. She
bought Osborne House as a holiday home in
1845 and died there on 22 January 1901.
The house has been opened up for members
of the public to gain an insight into what
type of monarch she was and her relationship
with her husband and children.

Nowadays Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of
Edinburgh live in the royal apartments on the
north side, while other members of the royal
family live on the east side. During special
events, the royals often make appearances on
the palace’s balcony and wave to well-wishers
standing on the Mall.
Visitors can wander around the Queen’s
sitting room and see the balcony where
Victoria and Albert used to sit together on
summer evenings. The Indian collections are
also worth a visit for a glimpse of the gifts that
were handed to the monarch to celebrate her
role as the Empress of India.
Another highlight is Osborne beach, the
Queen’s own private beach, where her
children learnt to swim. Younger visitors
will enjoy the children’s Swiss Cottage,
where the young royal children would
spend most of their time. They even had
their own vegetable patch.
Tower of London
Standing watch over the banks of the River
Thames, the Tower of London has played
an integral role in the capital’s history for
over 900 years. Two of Henry VIII’s wives,
Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard, were
imprisoned and executed in the tower.
Guy Fawkes was another famous name to
be imprisoned and tortured at the tower
after he attempted to blow up the Houses of
Parliament in 1605.

Sebagai universiti No. 1 di U.K. dalam soal jodoh,
seorang dari 10 pelajar dikatakan akan bertemu
jodoh mereka di sini.
Selain itu, St Andrews adalah destinasi golf
pilihan bekas Presiden Amerika Syarikat,
Barack Obama selepas bersara. Bagi yang tidak
meminati golf pula, keindahan pesisiran pantai
dan taman botani di sini mungkin pilihan anda.
Istana Kensington
Pernah didiami oleh mendiang Puteri Diana
dan Putera Wales bersama anak-anak mereka,
Istana Kensington kini masih diduduki oleh
Putera William dan Putera Harry.
Dibuka untuk kunjungan ramai sepanjang tahun,
pelbagai pameran termasuk pameran fesyen
mendiang Puteri Diana yang masih popular
sehingga ke hari ini turut diadakan di sini.
Keindahan bilik apartmen dan seni bina tangga
kediaman diraja yang dihiasi lukisan-lukisan
mewah abad ke-18 adalah tarikan utamanya.
Sejak tahun lalu, mendiang Puteri Diana terus
diingati menerusi pembinaan sebuah taman
bunga baharu. Dilengkapi lebih 12,000 kuntum
bunga Tulipa Diana, White Garden ini juga
dipenuhi 3,500 bunga Forget-Me-Nots dan
ribuan bunga-bunga lain. Kemasukan ke istana
dan taman ini adalah percuma. ■
Perihal Penulis
Sophie Williams adalah seorang wartawan berpangkalan
di London yang menulis tentang destinasi untuk akhbar
dan majalah negara. Dia mengisi masa lapangnya dengan
menerokai ibu kota serta mencari sajian 'Afternoon Tea' yang
terbaik. Sophie sebelum ini berpangkalan di Asia.
Nowadays, the Tower of London is home to
the Crown Jewels, still used by the Queen
during important national ceremonies.
When visiting, make sure to keep a look
out for the Imperial State Crown. Queen
Elizabeth wore it during her coronation and
wears it at the annual opening of parliament.
The Imperial State Crown contains 2,868
diamonds, 11 sapphires, 11 emeralds, 269
pearls and four rubies.
Younger visitors will be mesmerised by the
performances on offer, one of which is a live
historical reenactment of a battle to defend
the tower. Visitors are asked to help the guards
defend the castle from enemies.
The tower is constantly guarded by the
Queen’s warders, known as Beefeaters. For
an extra special experience, apply to join the
Beefeaters after dark as they lock up the tower
in the Ceremony of the Keys.
St Andrew’ s
Everyone likes a romantic story, and that is
certainly the case for Prince William and the
Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton.
St Andrew’s in Scotland has become famously
known as the place where the pair met in 2001
and began their romantic relationship.
Following the announcement of the royal
engagement, the university claimed it was the
U.K.’s number one match-making university,
with one in 10 students meeting their future
partner at the school.
Aside from exploring the grounds of the
university itself, St Andrew’s is a lovely town
to explore. It’s a popular golfing spot with
former U.S. President Barack Obama visiting
the course shortly after leaving his job at the
Oval Office. If golf isn’t your thing, the town’s
stunning coastline and its own Botanical
Gardens will surely beckon.
Kensington Palace
The late Princess Diana and the Prince of
Wales once lived in Kensington Palace,
bringing up their two sons William and Harry.
The princes still reside there today. William
and Kate live in an apartment in the main
building, while Harry resides in a cottage on
the grounds.
The palace is open to visitors all year round
and currently has an exhibition on Diana
and her fashion. It had been scheduled to
finish earlier this year but was extended
due to popularity. Visitors to Kensington
Palace will also be able to see the state
apartments and the beautiful King’s
staircase, which is crammed full of 18thcentury paintings.
Last year, a garden commemorating Princess
Diana was added to the grounds. The White
Garden contains over 12,000 Tulipa Diana
flowers, 3,500 Forget-Me-Nots and thousands
of other flowers. It’s a good spot for quiet
reflection inside the grounds. Visitors can
enter the garden for free and do not need a
ticket for the palace. ■

MALAYSIAN ICONS | Henry and Cyril Talalla
Brothers In Arms
Malaysians Henry Conrad Benjamin Talalla and Cyril Lionel Francis Talalla were
fighter pilots for the British Air Force during the Second World War. They were
part of the Allied effort to liberate Europe from German occupation.
Words Siva Sithraputhran | Photography Talalla Family
The brothers Henry and Cyril Talalla
might have been expected to find their feet in
the successful business started by their father
Hewage Talalla in the first decades of the 20th
century, but the brothers chose a different path.
Cyril (centre) in Canada for training
goingplacesmagazine.com | 79 | January 2018
As the Second World War broke and Nazi
Germany quickly gained ground in mainland
Europe, Britain called out for pilots from the
Commonwealth. Barely out of school, the
brothers answered the call, enrolling in the
Malayan Volunteer Air Force in Singapore. The
pair already had some flying experience, having
joined the Kuala Lumpur Flying Club.
Newspaper reports from the time show that
Cyril, the younger of the two, went on to become
a cadet for the Royal Air Force in 1941, at the
time a rare achievement for a non-European.
His brother Henry followed a little later. They
received further training in Canada before
making their way to Britain at the height of the
war. Both brothers were trained on Hurricane
aircraft but soon graduated to the newest fighter
jets of the time, the Spitfire and the Typhoon.
D-Day Exploits
On 6 June 1944, Allied forces made up of
American, British and Commonwealth troops
began a combined naval, air and land assault on
occupied France. The Allies landed on beaches
on the Normandy coast, starting a long and
eventually successful campaign to free Europe
from German occupation.
Henry and Cyril were part of this assault,
providing aerial cover for Allied troops on the
ground and sea. While Allied forces made good
progress, making inroads into occupied territory,
their successes came at a cost and the number
of Allied casualties were high.
Death
Battling to make further ground on 25 July that
year, Henry’s Typhoon fighter plane was hit by
fire from German tanks and went down over
farmland between the towns of Airan and Moult
in the Normandy region of northwestern France
and was presumed lost.
May 2018_Malaysian Icon_Talalla Brothers04.indd 79
Henry Talalla
Cyril Talalla
Hearing the news, Cyril flew over the area to
look for his brother, but it was a tough ask. In
the landscape of war and destruction, finding
the wreckage of a single aircraft was a forlorn
hope. Members of the French Resistance later
found Henry’s body and buried him close to the
wreckage of the Typhoon. He was 24 years old.
Despite the loss of his brother, Cyril continued
to fly and by Christmas of 1944 had completed
his last sortie over occupied territory. He spent
the rest of the war outside active duty as a
flight instructor. Over the course of the war
he had been in active duty over Britain, the
English Channel and occupied Europe. Cyril was
awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his
service and bravery.
Back home in Malaya, the Talalla clan had
little news of Henry and Cyril. A news blackout
prevailed as the country fell to the Japanese
Imperial Army and lasted until the end of the
war in 1945. Shocked at the news of Henry’s
death, the resourceful Hewage Talalla set off to
London to find out more about the whereabouts
of his son’s body, eventually finding the spot
where he was buried. Henry’s remains were
later moved to the Banneville-la-Campagne
British Cemetery.
Cyril returned to Malaya in 1945, later becoming
an air traffic controller before joining his father’s
firm. He passed away in August 1973. He was
53. Henry and the 150 Typhoon pilots who
lost their lives in the Normandy campaign are
remembered in a memorial in the town of
Noyers Bocage. In 1996, the motorway between
the villages of Airan and Moult was officially
named Route Henry Talalla in honour of the
brave young man from Kuala Lumpur. ■

Strathberry has announced a second line of production for its sellout “Meghan Markle handbag”. The brand’s Midi Tote design – with a
recognisable silhouette and signature metal bar – caught worldwide
attention when Meghan was spotted carrying one on her first official
appearance since her engagement to Prince Harry.
Moschino’s homage to My Little Pony is a celebration
of “cartoon couture”. Dreamt up in collaboration with
Hasbro, the designs are infused with pure whimsy. The
leather crossbody bag from the collection reimagines
the classic biker jacket silhouette, but in a shimmery

Inspired by Edwardian style, Mulberry’s new collection borrows hyper-feminine
trims as accents for both classic and contemporary silhouettes. The Mini Amberley
Satchel now comes with a ruffled trim and in attractive colours. A lock reminiscent
of a horse’s bit and bridle acts as the design’s key fastening.

Enhancing Experience
goingplacesmagazine.com | 77 | May 2018
Malaysia Airlines has introduced three new digital initiatives to
enhance passengers’ experience. MHguardian, MHfeedback
and MHchat were designed to deliver the best of Malaysian
Hospitality in line with its latest brand campaign, said Chief
Commercial Officer Arved von zur Muehlen. The MHguardian
mobile app, targeted for launch in the third quarter of 2018,
will enable parents or guardians to track unaccompanied
minors throughout their travels with the airline. This will also
be extended to support elderly passengers or those requiring
special assistance. Already available for download is the
MHfeedback app, where travellers can immediately share
anonymous feedback on their experience with the airline, which
will be submitted, analysed and directed to the responsible
service units. The third initiative, MHchat, is an interactive
Facebook Messenger bot that empowers passengers to book,
pay and retrieve their flight itinerary. This is achieved through
the integration of artificial intelligence or AI, making it the first
airline in Asia to allow users to do so through this platform.
Great Deals
The Malaysia Airlines booth was abuzz with
activity at the recent Matta Fair in Kuala Lumpur,
as travellers sought out flight and travel deals to
favourite destinations within the airline’s network.
There were fun activities, games and prizes up
for grabs, and visitors took the opportunity to be
photographed with cabin crew members, as well as
with the well-loved mascot, Pilot Parker.

Safety + service info
Cabin Luggage handling
Passenger and crew safety onboard our flights is our
highest priority. In compliance with the airline’s policy
and in observing Occupational, Safety and Health
Regulations requirements, cabin crew are no longer
required to stow passengers’ hand luggages into the
overhead stowage compartment. This is to minimise
occupational hazard and ergonomic risks faced by
cabin crew in the aircraft. Cabin crew on duty will,
however, assist passengers travelling with infants,
young passengers travelling alone, the elderly, and
passengers with reduced mobility. Passengers who
are fit and in good health must carry, stow and secure
their own hand luggages on board. Hand luggage
exceeding the 7kg weight limit is required to be
checked in before boarding.
Portable Electronic Devices (PED)
For safety reasons and in line with the Department of
Civil Aviation guidelines, mobile phones and all PEDs
must be switched off once aircraft doors are closed.
Whilst cruising, devices placed in flight mode may be
used. The devices must again be switched off during the
approach for landing until the aircraft is parked at the
terminal building. Devices transmitting strong signals
must remain switched off throughout the flight, until
disembarkation. The Captain may prohibit the use of
devices that can interfere with the aircraft’s system.
Lithium batteries
Lithium metal or lithium ion cells or batteries for
portable electronic devices (PEDs), including medical
devices must not exceed 2g for lithium metal batteries
and 100Wh for lithium ion batteries. All spare batteries,
including lithium metal or lithium ion cells or batteries,
for PEDs must be carried in passengers’ carry-on
baggage only. These batteries must be individually
protected to prevent short circuits. For PEDs containing
non-spillable batteries, they must be 12V or less or
100Wh or less. A maximum of two spare batteries
may be carried. These batteries must be individually
protected to prevent short circuits.
Electronic cigarettes
Electronic cigarettes must be carried on one’s person
or in carry-on baggage only. Recharging of the device
in-flight is not permitted.
Zero tolerance of abuse
We value courteousness. Any form of threat, verbal
abuse or violence towards our staff will be taken
seriously. We are committed to supporting anyone who
has been the victim of an assault.

Outspoken Malaysian
rapper Altimet’s album
Amboi is playing onboard
this month. The album’s
title track of the same
name came about from
“observing Malaysians on
social media”, he says.
Read on to find out what
else he has to say.
You’re arguably the pioneer of
the rap/hip hop music scene in
Malaysia. How did you get
into the scene?
goingplacesmagazine.com | 92 | May 2018
I wouldn't say that I am the
pioneer, there were others that
came before me, and a few of
them inspired me to start making
music, the main one being
Naughtius Maximus. Your hit single Amboi won
Best Performance at Malaysia’s
Anugerah Juara Lagu Ke-32.
What do you think that says
about the local music industry
and how it has evolved over
the years?
I think our audience appreciates
a good show when they see
one. Because of the Internet,
they are more open to newer
genres of music, and the fusion
of genres. Hip-hop has a rich
tradition of call and response in
their performances; the Malay
traditional dikir barat has that too,
so we spliced the two together,
and the viewers that night
responded to it and voted.
Where do you get inspiration
for your lyrics?
Malaysians. I try to write songs
that speak to them and for them.
I'm blessed because some of
these songs resonate with them.
One of my mentors summed it
up as rap untuk rakyat (rap for
the people).
Who are some of your
musical influences?
I'm trying to narrow it down
to three: Jay Z, the late great
Sudirman Haji Arshad, and
Miles Davis.
What’s next for Altimet?
I'd like to help other local
musicians find their way in the
entertainment industry. It’s a
challenge to balance your passion
and creativity with making a living
and being a professional musician.
Being Asian, there's always the
stigma that you can’t make a
good living being in the arts. I
want to kill that stigma. I'm sorry
if that sounds harsh but I really
don’t like that kind of thinking.

Man of the Woods – Justin Timberlake
Timberlake’s fifth studio album sees the artist experimenting with
elements of R&B, funk, soul and Americana. With Man of the Woods,
Timberlake takes a more personal approach, turning away from the norms
of urban pop to reconnect with his southern roots. He also named the
album after his son Silas, whose name means ‘of the forest’.

antioxidant powers of grape vines and grape seeds, the counter is a chic and
modern interpretation of the brand’s roots in Bordeaux.
