“Living in a multicultural society means that our language and slang are very much unique and can incorporate the language and/or diction of all 3 major races in Malaysia.”

Olivia LeeHonors Student at James Cook University, Australia

“Street food. Don’t bother with restaurants unless they’re proper authentic. Go places – Masjid Jamek, KLCC, KL Tower, Botanic Gardens, Lake Gardens, FRIMM, islands. Do local things like road tripping to Putrajaya (just for a drive around), Malacca (food is bomb), Penang (food is so bomb), go to shopping malls, try haggling with stores, call some stranger “auntie” or “uncle”.”

Karen ThivyaMasters Student at Anglia, Ruskin University, United Kingdom

“Food and shopping – the two things you need to experience whilst in Malaysia.”
