As I am a little behind, I’d like to squeeze in my last Malaysia post. Coming here with no expectations at all, Malaysia has surprised me being colorful and very welcoming. After Bali it has been very hard for me to change from this chilled and spiritual island with a wonderful energy to a Kuala Lumpur, that presented itself as a crowded, multicultural and bright city. But spending time with my dear friend and getting to know wonderful souls in KL and Penang has made my stay in Malaysia a full success and I am happy, that I got the chance to see this country.
With the corona virus becoming more and more present everywhere in Asia, I can say, that Malaysia took it pretty cool and didn’t overreact as I would hear from friends at home. They must be far more concerned than me or anyone else I’ve met here. But it has effected the celebrations for Chinese New Year and the amount of people wearing face masks increased rapidly. Oh and while I’m talking about that, I will put some pictures here from my very first CNY – the year of the rat!
Thanks to everyone involved for making my stay in Malaysia a wonderful experience! But that’s not the end of my journey yet!!! As I have arrived at Siem Reap, Cambodia today, I am very happy and excited for new adventures to come. So stay tuned!
For now as always, stay safe wherever you are and keep smiling! Life is good – god is good! I feel so blessed everyday!
