Malaysia: Places, People Food

When people ask me where am I from, I always answer them proudly, "Malaysia". Although Malaysia is not really a huge country as compared to the other ASEAN or Asia countries, it's a good place to stay or to visit.

Places of Interest

In Malaysia, we have a lot of places to visit. Every states have their own places of interest. Take for example, in Sarawak, we have Mulu Caves. It is well known for the home to the world's largest and most fascinating caves. If you're looking forward to visit some of the historical sites in Malaysia, you might have to try Malacca. The most popular historical site in Malacca is the Fort A Famosa. It was constructed by the Portuguese way back in the year 1511.

Those are some of the places of interest in Malaysia. That's only 2 states. Imagine there are thirteen states and three federal territories in Malaysia, you have plenty of places to visit!

People

Malaysia is multi-racial country where all the people live in peace and harmony. There are three largest populations in Malaysia. The Malays form the largest population followed by Chinese and Indian.

Malaysians are friendly in general. If you happened to visit Malaysia, I'm pretty sure you'll like the people here!

Food

Since Malaysia is formed by various races, we can find all different kind of food in Malaysia. To me, Malaysia is a food paradise. Roti canai, Char Kueh Tiaw, Chapati, Rendang, Kolo Mee are some of the famous food here. I personally love Char Kueh Tiaw and Kolo Mee. If you came across my blog before, I did blog about Char Kueh Tiaw a couple of times. In case you don't know, it's flat noodles being fried with several other ingredients such as bean sprouts, eggs, vege and etc. You must try it out if you happened to be in Malaysia. I'm sure you'll never forget the taste of it! Yummy!

The best part is the food here is cheap overall. You can enjoy your food without the fear of burning your pocket.

All of these make me love Malaysia more! :)
