MALAYSIA - For many, it was a home away from home, where the taste of Malaysia could be found.
Jenny Loh Yan Hwa, 55, and her husband, Hong Kong-born Fan Shun Po, 60, ran two popular eateries, Asian Glories and Dim Daily.
"The place was a haven for Malaysians who missed the food back home. We could ask for nasi lemak, kangkong with belacan, curry mee, anything," said Sharina Karim de Kraker, 65, a Malaysian who married a Dutch.
"When people went to her restaurant, they would say they were going to Jenny's. She promoted Malaysia in her own way. She was my best friend," Sharina said.
Asian Glories had earned a Bib Gourmand rating from Michelin for its excellent budget meals.
Loh and Fan were travelling with her mother, Tan Siew Poh, 85, from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur on MH17.
Fan was fondly called Popo by his friends.
