Fascinating Malaysia

Noodlies, Sydney food blog loves Malaysia – so much that I went there twice in 2012. Kuala Lumpur is a sophisticated, culturally rich city that is so exciting and alive, there’s an infectious buzz all around.

When you’re in KL, make sure you catch the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia, you could spend hours here admiring wonderful Islamic art and architecture (below).


Then pop across the road to eat at the food market in the National Mosque, the most wonderful selection of food, it’s buffet style and you’re charged by the weight of the food you’ve selected.

While people flock to Langkawi for the its pristine blue beach and oh-so-luxurious resorts, I also managed to find delicious street food at the Langkawi Night Market. See all the deliciousness in the noodlies video below.

Another Malaysian highlight was the Hungry Ghost Festival which I was fortunate enough to witness first-hand in Penang. It’s a colourful and head-spinning experience which I’ll remember for a long, long time. See the colour and excitement in the noodlies video below.

This is all just scratching the surface of this wonderful land and the beautiful, diverse people of Malaysia.
