My niece Tio Marasi Magdalena Hutasoit (Lena) is the eldest daughter of my sister Frisda Sitohang and her husband Sabar Hutasoit. Lena came to Bintan in 1999 and started her first job as Caddy at Ria Bintan Golf Course in Bintan Resort. After work as caddy for a few years, she moved to work for Angsana Resort Bintan.

Lena went to India for work in mid 2005. She is now working for Trident Hilton Gurgaon Hotel New Delhi India. When she first mentioned her plan to go to India, I was worried whether it's a right decision. I always think that if you plan to work oversea, you should go to a more developed country. And my perception compare to Indonesia, India is not one. But as Lena was so determined to go, I have no choice but to wish her all the best.

She was true, she is now enjoying work in India together with her only daughter Angel. In her last email, Lena told me that Angel now goes to a kindergarten in New Delhi which uses English as teaching language. Besides that, Angel is also now picking up Hindi.

Indian second largest property developer, Unitech is putting on sale its budget hotel in Gurgaon, Courtyard by Marriot for an expected 300 crore rupees. Though it is not clear who the buyer would be, the company is selling this hotel and many of its commercial and official properties to pay up a debt. Of late Gurgaon along with the other NCRs have emerged as one of the most economically and infrastructure wise developed city of the country. The availability of land has also contributed much towards this development. Hotels in Gurgaon have coincided with the increase in the number of multinational companies and the corresponding boom in the number of business travelers to the city. Its close proximity to the National and the International Airports and the fact that it is adjoined to the National Capital also acts to its advantage. The big names from the hospitality industry have shown interest in setting up luxury as well as the business hotels in Gurgaon that meets the international standards of hospitality.
