Living in Kuala Lumpur… the Beautiful


Last week I started a small series of posts about Living in Kuala Lumpurthe Good, the Bad and today we do the Beautiful

Living in Kuala Lumpur is truly a color feast. Not only the colors you see everywhere but also the 'colors' of the many cultures living here… three groups op people make this country, Malaysia so very interesting… the Orang Asli or the Malay, the Chinese and the Indians. Although they live very peaceful and happy together they keep to their own culture, food, habits, religion and festivities. Malaysia probably has the most National Holidays in the world :):) … no complaints here!

One of my favorites part in town is China town. I love buying supplies here for my small ventures, but also for it's Asian feel. I live in an expat part of town which is nice, but has lost some of its authentic colors already…  when Marjon was here we spend a whole afternoon cruising the little streets of China Town and Marjon captured so beautifully. SImple things are inspiring and when you know how to look you see a lot!

I will not bother you with more words, I hope you will just enjoy these images… come and visit me and this special country one day too :)

    I love Southeast Asia! And I really miss it. Should plan my next trip now to make me feel being able to stand the European winter better.

    I lived 2 years in KL and really enjoyed it, of course the are things that I didn’t, but for the most part it was a nice experience!
    The holidays were the best! It’s a holiday heaven! 😉

    I was on a business trip to KL some years ago and loved it! It definitely felt like a place where I could easily live for a while. Lovely pics!
