This is my second time visiting Malaysia, a country that depicts Indonesia the most, yet so different in a good way. I travelled with Dad, Mom, and David, plus my auntie as the tour guide. She's currently studying for her doctoral degree at Universiti Malaya, Kuala Lumpur. I should send her a big thanks, cause she's the one who made this journey worth all.
The last time I visited the country, I didn't spend enough time to stroll around the country, even the capital city. So even that this was the second time, it surely felt just like the first time. Me and my family spent almost a week and we've visited so many places there. From shopping spots in Bukit Bintang, to historical sites in Melaka. We had so much fun!
My favorite is climbing the stairs in Batu Caves, Selangor. The climb was so tiring, but the view of the inside of the cave's really fascinating. What I love more is there was a religious festival held when we got there, so we got to see some unique rituals and vibrant people there.
Since it's Chinese New Year season, Kuala Lumpur was like splashed in red and gold. Also, a gazillion people colonized the streets and malls. We sometimes met a group of people from home, mostly Chinese-Indonesian. But, still it's a great city to visit.
