1. Love Story On Malaysia
I am a Malaysian Chinese.
I always introduced myself as a Malaysian Chinese when I am among some non-Malaysian friends.
If not, they will think I am from China.
Many of them cannot understand that in Malaysia, we do have many races and one of the big three races in Malaysia is Chinese (read full post…)

3. Love Story on Malaysia: Malacca Historic City
By Nux V
I have been scratching head, thinking of any uniqueness I could find on M’sia. Despite all the grumbles and hassles that is going around on the recent fuel price hike and the rising inflation, this beloved country does still have its own charm.
Recently, I went for a local trip, sort of a ‘makan trip’ to Malacca. There was this slogan, which goes by ‘Visiting Malacca, means visiting Malaysia’. Could be true, coz this historic state was recently being nominated for UNESCO heritage site, and it has centuries-long history with blended cultures. (read full post…)
4. What I Love Most About Malaysia
By Amir Fuad
The one thing that I love most about Malaysia is definitely the multi-cultural experience.
I grew up in the Kuala Lumpur and attended a Catholic missionary school in the heart of the city which had a good ethnic mix of students. I was able to glimpse into the lives of kids from other ethnic backgrounds. I learned many things- that my Indian friends come from of many dialect groups (e.g. Tamilian, Ceylonese, Malayalee, Punjabi, etc), that my Chinese friends ate dinner “early” but will do supper before bedtime. I also learned that my Eurasian friends have humble backgrounds (the Melaka Christao are mostly fishermen). (read full post…)
5. Malaysia – The New Villages
By Kervin Chong
If you take a look around and closely scrutinise your surrounding you are sure to find great places where you were never aware. I’ve always been fascinated with the new villages which according to your history books came about during the Communist insurrection as a result of the Brigg’s plan to relocate far flung settlements into a centralised area to prevent smuggling of aid and food to communists.

6. Love Malaysia? Why Not?
By Maynard Keyne
The Mamaks all over the place is such a nice place to hang out and chill while sipping some Teh Ais with Roti Naan, watching a show on the huge screen with people from all walks of life, any time, any day. When bored or feeling a familiar stirring in my tummy, I’ll just call up a friend or two, whether it be at 10 p.m. or 1 a.m. and go off to any nearby Mamak. Talking through the night, sharing stories on life and times, is a memory I’ll always cherish. (read full post…)

8. Malaysia, Why Do I Love Thee?
I am not Malaysian but I am married to one and has been in Malaysia for 5 years and 7 months now. For this period of time, I have learned so much about Malaysia, its diverse cultures, food, festival and even “pantangs” or superstitious beliefs as you call it. Being here this long helped me learn and discover a lot of nice things about Malaysia and its people. And indeed I have fallen in love with Malaysia. So Malaysia, why do I love thee?
Let me count the ways… (read full post…)

10. I Love Malaysia
By My Bug Life
What do I love about Malaysia? A lot actually. But MBL would like to focus on my series of One Island Travel Stories which gives readers a glimpse into Malaysia (its lesser known little towns and local foods) and One Island (quite literally, there is indeed only one) as my favourite holiday destination.

17. Why I Love Malaysia
I love Malaysia because it has a long North South Highway for driving on and dozing off on. North South Highway is much longer than Singapore’s Pan-Island Expressway where the speed limit is lower and there is risk of driving one’s Ferrari or Lamborghini off the island once the 4th gear is engaged…(read full post…)
