Last year, my Sidetrip to Malaysia with friends was really an adventure. Good thing, I passed the immigration after being asked with circling questions that took me a longer time in the queue. Yes, it's me already -- a student going out to night parties across the border.
Anyway, I got in and my first impression with Kuala Lumpur feels like I was actually in Manila. A busy city but of similar cost of living. Buildings so tall, roads filled with vehicles, people walking the streets and affordable goods -- the feel was just so the same.
Malaysia offers a lot of remarkable structures like that of the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur and the Lord Murugan in Batu Caves which really are impressive. Even the Genting Skyway at the Highlands I so enjoyed. Luckily, we met a fellow 'kabayan' that became our instant tourist guide and made our whole side trip more comfortable.
For the food, we didn't explore much about it because we're not the foodie explorer type. We were provided free breakfast on the guest house where we stayed while we took lunch and dinner to fast food chains.
Surely, Malaysia is worth a visit when you're going to an Asian Tour coming from Singapore. I know some of my friends made it to Singapore-Malaysia-Bangkok-Laos-Cambodia-Vietnam trip but for us, we did not have enough time for the whole tour. For the rest of Asia, we will surely have time for you next time. :)
