Truly Asia, as the tourism commercial says. Definitely a ginormous mash-up of everything and anything Asian: Chinese, Malay, Tamil, and a sprinkle of expats of course.
Loved every moment of it, here are some shots :)
Petronas Towers at night, Kuala Lumpur.
The Shah Alam mosque, one of the largest in the region, just about an hour out of Kuala Lumpur.
Penang, the historical island of culture and food. Incense offerings at an ancestral temple.
Langkawi, my ideal definition of an island - good food, chilled out people, awesome beach.
I already miss Malaysia and I just left it this morning. It has definitely been the highlight of my trip so far. Just got to Thailand today, gonna do some island hopping on the south west coast and then head over to Bangkok!
note: i posted this entry on the 6th of june, but it says may 30th. dont ask.
