Be-ribboned tied in cute bows, stilettos, chic sandals, jazzy platforms, comfortable pumps or even a sexy pair of boots, or two… oh, you’ll be spoiled for choice at this year’s shoe festival.
Especially with the launch of the 3rd Malaysia International Shoe Festival at Putra World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur. The event is held from 30 March till 1 April, 2012 starting at 10.30 am till 8.30 pm.
Congratulations to winners of the recent Malaysia Tourism Award 2010/2011 !
The gracious presence of Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Haminah Hamidun certainly made the Malaysia Tourism Award ceremony, a grand affair to remember.
First initiated in 1987, the Malaysia Tourism Award, is held bi-annually. It is the highest accolade given, in recognition to those who excel in the development of the country’s tourism industry.
The scent of freshly cut jasmine wafts through the air. The kolam decorated intricately with rice powder is a riot of colours. Deepavali treats such as murukku, omapoodi and sweetmeats are prepared for guests.
Preparations are under way for the big celebration of Deepavali in households throughout Malaysia.
Happy New Year!
New resolutions? New places to travel? Any interesting places to visit?
Share the adventure with us as we explore more of Malaysia this year.
It is a wonderful year, with more and more people coming to visit the country and explore the many events celebrated throughout Malaysia.
In January, there will be the Royal Langkawi International Regatta (from 8 January to 15 January, 2010). The Royal Langkawi International Regatta has participants coming from various countries across the Asia Pacific region.
Another important event is Thaipusam, celebrated on 30 January. It is an annual annual Hindu festival where devotees perform various rituals and carry ‘kavadis’ or ornate frames as acts of devotion and penance.
The main venue is the world-renowned Batu Caves temple, set within a limestone cave. Do come early if you wish to partake or observe the events, as devotees usually gather here a few days before the big event itself.
The highlight of the month would be the 16th Malaysia Tourism Awards 2008/2009 to be held this Saturday, 9 January 2010. You can watch the live event from 8.00 pm to 11.00 pm (GMT +8 hours) at this link, on the Truly Asia web tv.
Thank you for visiting and supporting us in 2009, and hope you'll find more new things in 2010!
Have a great and X-citing year ahead!

The smooth jawi script, intricately carved with the words ‘Tengku Khazijah binti Seri Maharaja Sultan Abdul Jalil, Riau 1127 (Hijrah)’, shone brightly in the glass case. The words were inscribed onto a silver tray, replete with small motifs.
It must have once been an important household item, used by a royal family. Present in the early days of the Riau Sultanate, it would have been used to carry delicious cooked food, and warm drinks for family members, friends and guests.
Other exhibits include a magnificent war helmet, inlaid with precious stones and made using bronze. It is from Iran dating back to the 18th to 19th century AD. There is also a pectoral plate made of silver inlaid with precious carnelian and turquoise stones from Bukhara, Uzbekistan from 19th century AD.
