Flying Birds was started in Australia a few years by two young
    Australian ladies keen to travel, shop and buy household decorator
    items. One had freshly returned to Australia from a three year
    posting to Jakarta with her family and the other one was looking
    for a challenge. A business involving two Australian ladies
    travelling back and forth could only be called "Flying Birds".

    Despite their best endeavours, Flying Birds was only moderately
    successful with the recession in the early 1990s having no
    positive effect on the ability of Melbourne residents

    to purchase Indonesian decorative and household items.

    The same recession led to the family of one "Flying Bird"
    leaving the coop in Melbourne and establishing a new nest
    in Kuala Lumpur.
