Cristian and Debbie have been a great social networking couple in Kuala Lumpur for the past years. As member of the Wine Aficionados Group, which was founded by them, we always enjoy the wine dinners organized. The gatherings are tastefully organized with lots of fun to the finest details.

 

The selection of wine pairings from different regions are always a great experience at fantastic value. Those dinners have been an event in my calendar to look forward to meeting new friends.

 

Cristian and Debbie are in the lifestyle circle and it would be great for them to share their experience and connections to others.

Cristian and Debbie’s  relationship with me started off as restauranteur and guest. 

 

I remembered the first time we impressed them with our cuisine and service. But along the years, the gap between purveyor and client narrowed to become close friends. I am truly grateful for this as I believe forging close relationships with clients are an integral part of a sustainable successful business future.

 

Be it for business or casual socialising, 

connectPRKL is one of these new setups that bring people together in solidarity and friendship. 

 

Building trust and happiness are key points of keeping our spirits up and sanity in this crisis we live in now.
