Back to Malaysia

Doing an Internship in Malaysia a couple of years ago, I fell in love with this country.

There is so much to love and to enjoy. The food is amazing, the people are friendly and its rich history make it a joy to visit again and again.

Its geographical location to Perth and the opportunity to their fly cheap using AirAsia makes it easy for me to visit regularly.

I managed to score a super sweet deal on a flight to Kuala Lumpur and so I convinced my dad to join me for a week’s holiday there.

We first visited Malacca which used to be a major trading post so it has substantial Portuguese, Dutch, chinese and British influence.   

Being history buffs we loved visiting the museums and the historical sights as well as catching up with friends.

Malaysia being a sort of shoppers’ paradise we couldn’t help to indulge a little when we got to KL. So in between doing the sights and eating way too much we did a spot of shopping in China Town and at KLCC.

Penang was our final stop and we loved every minute. We were particularly interested in this part of Malaysia since Papa’s sister has lived here in the 1950s. we thought of her often and how Georgetown much have changed since then.

We fell in love with the quaint architecture and the street art that was so pretty. We loved the history and we learnt so much. We enjoyed thinking of lives past while enjoying a cool drink at the Eastern and Oriental Hotel.           

All too soon it was time to go home but we got on the plane home we were exhausted but happy.

Thanks Malaysia, until next time.
