Thanks to my friend for bringing me to central market. To my surprise i did not know Central Market has change so much. I even can’t remember when were the last time i visited. It was full of multi cultural things. The flooring? OMG its like a Moroccon style isn’t it? The lightings, the shops and all of it…. give me the warm feeling and full of heritage? if you know what i mean.


The carpet was amazing, full of colours and the intricacy of sewing is marvellous.

Wayang Kulit

I felt like i was a tourist and starting to appreciate more about my culture. This particular thing is called ‘Wayang Kulit’. Back in the old days when television were not invented yet, the locals will watch this as an entertainment. Basically there will be two person holding two of this stick and start to act or impersonate the stick character.

For more information about wayang kulit please check this link :



Each mask represent different characteristics of a person, even from the slightest choosing from colours,shape of the eyes, face shape and etc. Don’t you think even without wearing this mask a normal individual of people has worn many mask too? Can you think of a friend who does not wear a mask? Just a thought….


Namoo Koreaan Dessert Cafe n Bistro

This is one of my favourite Korean restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. Their tteokbokki are never disappointing and their coffee is amazing. But i have to warn you their sweet dessert is not that good though.

Do i need to explain more? When you see this type of dishes obviously it is at ‘mamak’. Why the name is ‘mamak’? Honestly i have no idea. This restaurant are famous for their local food such as:

  • Roti perata
  • Fried mee or Fried mee hoon
  • Fried rice
  • Chicken tandoori

The list goes on and on. Basically most of the food comes from India but with a twist of a Malaysian flavouring. Prices? totally affordable.


Whats that?

  • Fried maggie
  • Tom yam mee hoon
  • Prada roll with sausage


I am truly grateful to be a Malaysian because there is tonnes of food to eat and we are rich with multi racial which also means there is a lot of cultural aspect in just one country. Malaysia truly Asia.

Which is your favourite restaurant?
