The move is undoubtedly a big step forward for Dabral, who, in an earlier interview wit mulberry handbags h agencyfaqs!, had said that the decision to accept the Malaysia offer was taken “one drunken evening”. Whatever be the circumstances that led to the decision being taken, it was one that certainly did O Malaysia and Malaysian advertising a world of good.
