Cintaku Malaysia

I've been surfing for tourist attractions and places of interest in Malaysia the whole afternoon. My mouth was left agape, I wanted to cry and I felt a little embarrassed for not knowing the greatness in my own backyard.

From breath-taking manmade/built skyscrapers to natural wonders with luscious greens and richness in flora and fauna, we have them.

Leeds, you were right. Malaysia has so much to offer.

The plan is, we will be in KL for a couple of days and after Christmas, we head up north. Celebrating New Year's in Penang. Mummy suggested that we make stops in Perak. I found a very handy site on Malaysian tourism that comes with pictures and directions. Amazing. I can't believe there's so much to venture.

I've been to Hawaii, never to Borneo.

I've been to Prague Town, never to Ipoh Town.

I've been to Lake Luzern, never to Taiping Lake Garden.

I've been to Zion National Park, never to Taman Negara.

I've been to the Swiss Mountains, never to Mount KK.

I've been to Shanghai Tower, never to KL Tower.

Basically, we don't cuti-cuti Malaysia.

I used to be/maybe still/perhaps was a classic case of "Grass is greener on the other side" and my parents were always more enthusiastic to spend our school holidays abroad, like broaden our horizon kind of folks (not that I ever complained). Only in recent years, I walked more on Malaysian soil like Melaka and Langkawi (twice!).

Aaahhh.. I feel so proud saying that. I want more, MORE!

Too bad the Northeast monsoon is here to stay, so we have to cross out all the island trips. But Perak will be very interesting because we will go through Taiping, Ipoh, the other smaller towns for sightseeing. Might stay 2-3 days even. On Penang island itself, there are tons to see. I will kinda relive my childhood memories! We haven't been to many, many places for a long time! :)

First page of my guide book, don't laugh LOL

Penang is on the back of my palm!
Now we all remember CJ Tours, don't we ;)

Other states we will travel to would be Melaka, Pahang (Genting Highlands LOL) and Johor (my birth place!). Turkish has been to Singapore and Thailand.. yes, everyone tends to neglect the country in between both, plus we will meet Fats in Penang, I doubt we will cross over to Singapore. I just can't wait to show Turkish my country!

My motto: "Malaysian is my home and home is where the heart is".

According to Soo Lynnie Tong Bao who says that Singapore is very pretty with seasonal decos and such, we might consider it. OMG. So much lined up on the list and so little time! *screams*

Don't let me get started on food LOL

Speaking of Philharmonics, you know they are playing the Lord of The Rings orchestra right now! Too bad it'll be over by the time we are in KL.

If there is a chance you should pay a visit to Sabah, lots of interesting places there. I personally feel so as my family has been staying there for the past 9 years :)
