How ar? Am I hired or fired?

The Maldivian blog entry series have generated a lot of interest in this Island Republic. No, I am not employed or sponsored by the Maldives Tourism Board. But I am always glad to promote exotic places, especially those with growing GDP (and high GNH).

GNH is Gross National Happiness, a term suggested by the King of Bhutan, who said GNH is more important than gross national product. Hmm, hard to disagree with him.

Sarawak is definitely one place with growing GDP and very high GNH! Cannot wait to do a blog series on Sarawak. (I am still waiting for my appointment letter from the Sarawak Tourism Board.)

Selamat Hari Gawai to all Sarawakians and everyone celebrating this wondrous day! Gayu-guru, gerai-nyamai.

Bhutan is slowly walking towards modernization. I wonder whether you know that Bhutan has a blog now. Secondly, Bhutan is also trying to shine in the Call center industry. If possible, visit Bhutan and write about it.

Razib, welcome to Sisuahlai! I like an economist participation. Yes, will gladly write about the last virgin country in the world if there was a sponsor to fund my trip to Bhutan! Or when the Bhutan King stops charging the US200+ a day visa. Whichever one comes first.

That is "long life, health and prosperity"! The Gawai Day closest equivalent to "yam seng"...
