In reply to Mr Chow, Mr Dag Holmboe stated that a year and half is actually a short time to bring something so amazing to life. “Congratulations, you have done a fantastic job, you have created something very unique and very special that I’m sure all of us will enjoy very much,” said Holmboe. “Thank you for bringing Cohiba Atmosphere to Malaysia.”
