Wow, missing in action for more than a month! That’s unlike me!
I was doing too many things at the same time and got myself into a loop of busy! I hope my Instagram and Facebook updates have kept you entertained and I promise to be better at updating the good old blog. My trip to Malaysia was a success and I have maaany beauty items to showcase – all coming up!
- Sephora in Kuala Lumpur (I went to 2 different Sephoras to find the Urban Decay Naked 2 Pallet as they were all sold out at the beginning of the week. I persevered and got my pallet safely to Sydney on the nearly last day in KL! Woohoo!)
- Langkawi Meritus Pelangi Resort
This resort is amazing! Has one of the best swimming pools I’ve ever seen in a resort, a very secluded beach, lots of space, a tropical atmosphere and lots of greenery to look at.
The island of Langkawi is beautiful because you’re surrounded by hills and in some instances mountains.
- KL Middle Eastern Food and all food!
I was born in Kazakhstan so for me having a variety of good food is essential. From a young age I have been used to eating (within the same week) food that comes from Middle Eastern influence , Russian and Korean. So it was good, almost home-like to see this sort of mix and variety of European, Middle East and Asian cultures. For that I loved Malaysia!
All religions and people living in the same place and making it work. That’s what Kazakhstan is essentially like and that is one of the most important things to me – having variety and living peacefully.
In KL I fell in love with a Turkish restaurant called Tarbush. Located in the Starhill Gallery, one of the premium malls in KL, this restaurant not only puts you in an intimate setting but provides amazing food. Below is a bit of a preview on the special menu they have all of this month as a part of the Malaysia International gourmet food festival 2013. (Forgive the quality of these photos, taken on my iPhone that is getting quite old).
Malaysia is a great place to visit because of the multinational aspect and KL is ranked the number 4 best city in the world for shopping. With only 8 hours of flying in between Sydney, it’s a sure winner for me on all counts!
I am definitely going back
