So when the ladies organised a get together for Wednesday night, it was with a resounding yes that I agreed to go. Suffice to say I've not gone out to clubs/bars/watering holes, whatever you want to call them, in quite a while so it was interesting to discover this new place called Elysium in town. Situated atop one of the business towers in town, it was relatively easy and painless to get there (yes this all really counts OK!) The lovely hostess guided me to the lift that whisked me up to the 31st floor, where the friendly waiters showed me to a lovely terrace overlooking the Kuala Lumpur Skyline. It had just finished raining so the evening was cool and balmy. I was introduced to everyone as there were fresh new faces there, one of the other reasons I went.

Back to the Ladies, so we have a former COO of radio broadcasting, 1 producer, 1 zero waste campaigner, 1 marketing and promotions whiz , 1 traffic news presenter and a high flyer from a major research company. As you can imagine the conversation was eclectic and ranged from trips to the south and north pole to chasing escaping pets on a beach! One thing we all had in common, we were all tired of the chauvinistic behaviour still rampant in our respective industries even though we've moved into the 21st century (I guess the burning of bras was not enough to break the glass celing!) and that feminism was more about equality, not who's better. The conversation came to a head when we discussed how we could collectively begin to create a network of women to set up a form of "old boys club" in order to help each other move up the ladder. I'm sure you understand exactly what I mean. It was also refreshing to go out and have a lively and entertaining discussion, as opposed to being bored out of your mind with the company, conversation, place, time...zzzzz.
