I’d say In this ASEAN region, it’s kinda unique situation, in my 29 years of my life, I don’t know any fear of confrontation or massive force majeure in Malaysia. All my friends from different kind of races are happily with with what ever task they do. All major issues like politic and economy can be solved by the government.

The children have wide opportunity to choose their first education, affordable by the government or the dynamic and expensive one by the private. The education access for the people are continuous here and it is yours to choose. Free government hospital for the citizen and the police forces are guarding the nation safety in you can say…. at very good rate.

Bilateral relationship between other country? Malaysia are well known for it’s support for peace and no war. Malaysia also have been supporting UN troops since 1960s. Helping other nation in needs with hand and financially. Bosnia-Herzegovina, Lubnan, Iran Earthquake, Pakistan flood, Black Hawk Down, the Great Indonesian Tsunami and Earthquake, Gaza are among Malaysia portfolio.

This peace no war country making it suitable to develop the Tourism Industry. So Malaysia also aims are to increase the tourism sector’s contribution by 2.1 times, contributing RM115 billion ($36 billion) in receipts and providing 2.7 million jobs in the tourism industry in 2015.

Hari Raya Enchantment

Hari Raya Enchantment

How far will you go for festive shopping? As far as Paris? Kuala Lumpur is far enough for me because I live in Melaka. Here at our place we have it all, so why do we need to go far for a shoes and handbag?

Maybe as a human, there is no such thing is enough. Like this is enough, or just enough. As long as we can spend than world is not enough.

Well, KL is Malaysia shopping hub, so it’s rational why this month there will be slight increase in KL’s traffic like in Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman.

Suria KLCC have a promotion. When Hari Raya, KLCC are among the colorful shopping mall. They will build giant replica at the center like ketupat, village house and so on. Your kid can play too. At Petrosains, Aquaria or the public pool.

From 19 August to 13 September 2010 Suria KLCC got Raya Enchantment. Browse here for the brochure, I can see got free cupcakes and fragrance from Calvin Klein.
