My coun­try, Malaysia

New Straits Times - - Jom! Do -

Con­cu­bine Lane in Ipoh is pop­u­lar with tourists.

PENIN­SU­LAR Malaysia and East Malaysia, sep­a­rated by the South China Sea, of­fer dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ences to trav­ellers. The for­mer is home to grow­ing cities, beau­ti­ful sunny beaches and is­lands while the lat­ter is a rugged land of tra­di­tional vil­lages, rel­a­tively ac­ces­si­ble na­tional parks and pris­tine is­lands.

Malaysia has it all; from stun­ning beaches to ex­otic wildlife, world-class re­sorts and rain­forests. It’s rich with cul­ture, her­itage, his­tory, shop­ping and food. This coun­try is in­deed a melt­ing pot of di­ver­sity and colours.

It is home to a mul­tira­cial pop­u­la­tion, di­verse re­li­gions and cul­tures. This sta­bil­ity and peace is unique to us.

This coun­try also of­fers de­li­cious culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ences. Street stalls serve de­li­cious food. Due to the multi-eth­nic pop­u­la­tion, ev­ery­one can get to taste the many va­ri­eties and flavours of the var­i­ous cuisines.

One of the most pop­u­lar food cap­i­tals of Malaysia is Pe­nang. I am very proud to be a Malaysian!
