Highlights: Historic Sites & Food, Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia


Ipoh is the state capital of Perak, which is located in the North direction of Peninsula Malaysia from the federal capital of Kuala Lumpur. A single journey takes between 2 1/2 to 3 hours drive through highway from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh. Historically, Ipoh developed as one of the fast growing cities, outside of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia due to the booming in tin mining industry early 19th century.

Ipoh, Perak is surrounded by limestone caves, mountains and lakes. There are many adventurous activities to do in Ipoh such as, exploring inside the limestone cave of Gua Tempurung, visiting cave temples, participating in White Water Rafting and soaking at Tambun Hot Springs which helps to improve your blood circulation with highly content of sulfur from the hot spring water.

Apart from that, Ipoh is also popular for variety of delicious and cheap food. Ipoh White Coffee is the most popular and the signature food in Ipoh. Even, the international brand of OldTown White Coffee which you consume frequently, was originated from a popular coffee shop known as Nam Heong Old Town White Cafe in the old town of Ipoh. These days, many young Malaysians take the opportunities to travel to Ipoh with friends during weekend trips, just for food adventure.

We travel frequently to Ipoh since it's my hubby's hometown. However, it's a very short trip recently, thus I didn't have opportunity to explore this historical city of Ipoh.

Architecture: Kuala Lumpur & Putrajaya, Malaysia


Malaysia is not only popular with its unique cuisine and culture but it's also well-known for its modern architecture high scrapers and unique structure of tall buildings within Kuala Lumpur (or also known as KL) and Putrajaya. Kuala Lumpur is the national capital for the country's financial and commercial centre while Putrajaya is the federal administrative centre of Malaysia. Putrajaya is situated 25km south of Kuala Lumpur which takes between 30-45 minutes driving by vehicle throughout the journey. Beside that, majority of food operators in restaurants and shopping malls emphasize on the modern and unique decoration in order to lure customers to dine there apart from ensuring the high quality of food products.

A number of international movie makers, including Jackie Chan in his movie, Supercop or Police Story III with Michelle Yeoh as the co-star, have traveled to Malaysia and filmed movies because of the unique culture and modern architecture buildings besides, low budget investment compared to making movies in many developed countries. Even, the top Hong Kong blockbuster action movie, The Viral Factor was released on January 2012 in the cinemas worldwide, received a lot of positive critics including the Rotten Tomatoes. An estimated of 80% of the scenes in The Viral Factor movie was filmed entirely in Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, Malaysia while the rest of the scenes were shot in the Middle East and China. The Viral Factor is the most intense action movie which I haven't seen this kind of film from any of the Hollywood movies for many years. Why do I consider The Viral Factor as the most intense action movie? The film producer of The Viral Factor, Dante Lam was very fortunate to get a lot support from the Malaysian government in order to utilize a lot of non-stop action scenes such as gunfights and explosions including cars chasing along the busy streets, KL Sentral (the famous railway station), helicopters from the Malaysian air force flying to some famous shopping malls around the Golden Triangle and the Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Port Klang (the busy sea port of Malaysia) and Putrajaya as well. You can read the story plot and watch the trailer with English subtitle from this official website here.

As there are less crowds at Putrajaya branch office, I managed to collect my new Malaysian passport in an hour without using kiosk.

Since the public transportation in Malaysia isn't friendly and reliable, it's highly suggested to engage private tour like, http://www.viator.com/Malaysia/d17-ttd or join tour group in order to visit popular landmarks in Kuala Lumpur and other states in Malaysia. You can e-mail to me if you have questions or need some suggestions to travel in Malaysia. I am happy to help you :)

Malaysian Food & Morning Market, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


In the past two weeks, I was on vacation and returned to my home country, Malaysia in order to renew my visa and Malaysian passport. It has been three years that I have been away from Malaysia.

Majority of my foreign friends don't know the existence of Malaysia but it's different when I mention the Twin Towers which is one of the world's famous building.

Malaysia is a tropical country with its hot and humid climate throughout 365 days in a year. It is situated in between the little island of Singapore and Thailand and surrounded by the South China Sea. Malaysia has a multicultural society with its unique identities of modern architectural buildings, Malaysian languages, beautiful corals and beaches, fine arts, food and culture. Most of the foreigners envy with Malaysians for being able to read, speak and write well in multiple languages: Bahasa Malaysia (the official of Malaysian language), English, Chinese (Mandarin, Cantonese and some dialets) or Tamil / Hindi (for Indian communities).

To me, nothing tastes as good as the authentic Malaysian cuisine and street food in my home country since I am craving them for so long while living in the United States. Malaysian cuisine has a combination sweet, spicy and sour spices of Malay, Chinese and Indian which is so special and can't be found in other countries. On top of that, Malaysia is also popular for the street food from Mamat stalls which operate 24 hours daily in the cities and around the neighbourhood. CNNGo also introduces some popular Mamat food over here.

Apart from that, I also miss the ambience of morning market in my neighbourhood at Taman Overseas Union, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. There are many vendors which sell from breakfast meals, fresh food to clothing at the morning market. This morning market has its similar identity to the Farmer's Market in the United States. There is another version called, The Night Market where the vendors offer similar range of products as the Morning Market, but it operates from 7pm to 11pm, once a week in different neighbourhood.

(Updated:) Malaysia is a multicultural society with Malays, Chinese, Indians and other ethnic mainly in East Malaysia. Thus, it's very unique to see the culture, friendliness and courtesy among Malaysians. Here is a short film, produced by JinnyboyTV and Hitzfm to reflect typical Malaysians in their daily lives:
