Travel Wishlist : Malaysia

4:40 PM

I went to Batam last year when I had a conversation with a local, 10-year old boy there:

Note : I kinda surprised that local Batam boy speaks a lot like Bahasa Malaysia, not Bahasa Indonesia. I later found out that the Malaysian cartoon Upin Ipin is sooo famous there, and they tend to speak a lot like they way those characters speak (Bahasa Malaysia)

"Kak dari mana"/ "Where are you from?"


The Iconic Towers of Malaysia - Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower

When I mentioned the city name (he obviously asked for details), he will replied back with the place's signature building/attractions

Malacca = A Famosa

Cameron Highland *written here* = Tea estate

This boy knows a lot about Malaysia and Im proud! ^^,

Of course, being a local I visited many of the attractions for countless times such as KLCC, Putrajaya, Batu Caves, Cameron Highlands, Penang, Pulau Langkawi, Port Dickson etc.

☑ Dinner at the Atmosphere 360 revolving restaurant at KL Tower

☑ Dinner at the Ampang Lookout Point (countless times)

☑ Eat nasi lemak at both Tanglin and Village Park

☑ Shopping at Jalan TAR/Johor Premium Outlets/Pavillion

And while attending work-related meetings, I frequently did fly to Penang, Kedah (because I took care of projects in Northern Region) but definitely missed out on local favourites/tourist attractions.

If I had the time Id like to revisit the following tourist attractions in 2017:
