Ok, so this one of the coolest things that has ever happened to us!

We’re going to Malaysia! We were contacted by M.E. Malaysia to do a presentation/meet up/fan chat and stuff! We honestly love the people over at M.E. Malaysia, we actually met them due to B.A.P’s Debut Showcase. They were the only press that was allowed to interview B.A.P and they contacted us to come with them because they liked our blog! We were so flattered and excited, and after the B.A.P showcase, we all hung out went to Hongdae and enjoyed a good dinner with awesome conversation and lots of laughing. So we were really excited to hear from them again to join them in celebrating their anniversary.

The whole event will be at Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus on May 12th, and it starts around 1:00pm with videos and backstage footage from M.E Malaysia, as well as some extra events (which are a surprise) and then we’ll be chatting at 3:30pm about our videos, our experiences with the Kpop industry, future projects, the Spudgy’s secret to long luxurious hair, and not zombies, and it’s gonna be awesome! It’ll also be our very first time in Malaysia, so we’re totally excited. Anyone got any advice? Food ideas? We’re nervous! Anyhow, here’s the poster for the event :D

Eat Your Kimchi in Malaysia

YAYYYYYY!!!! If any of you are going to the event, please let us know :D For more info, check out this link about our itinerary and stuff. WE’RE SO SUPER EXCITED! *wiggles*

  1. OH MY GOD! WHERE CAN I BUY THE TICKETS IN TAYLORS! I WANT MEET&GREET! ARHHHHH I WANT TO MEET SPUDGY’s BIRTH PARENTS (well not exactly) BUT WOOF!

    You must must must must eat lots of food in Malaysia. I’ve recently moved out of Malaysia and am already writing lists of all the things I want to eat when I go back to visit. Although Penang is the food haven of Malaysia there are still plenty of other things you can find to eat elsewhere. For the best food experience, you have to go to hawker places or ‘mamak’ stalls. They are much cheaper and definitely more yummy than the supposedly same dish served in a fancy restaurant. Enjoy your trip!!

  3. …on the 12th???!! Oh man..i have work until 3pm!! Not sure if I can attend though..

    But do go to the Bak Kut Teh Restaurant just right opposite the main highway beside Taylors! **ask the students there, they should know! There are quite alot, but ask them to bring you to the one at the corner lot!**

  4. beautyWITHbrain

    Welcome!you should try chestnut in Petaling Street

  5. UGH! i wish i could come down and see you guise~ but i’d still be in uni by that time finishing off my exams. TT^TT

    well, everyone’s basically already given food advice, so i don’t really have anything more to add. when you get there you can basically try anything. as for places to visit, just come down to KL. you can do anything there. and anywhere is accessible by LRT; malaysia’s train system, like KTX. it’s cheap too so you don’t have to take the taxi. taxis here are not really a recommended transportation mode as they will charge you super expensive even to locals. if you can find one that uses the meter then that’s fine. avoid the areas where a lot of taxis park and the taxi drivers just stand around asking you where you wanna go. that’s like a trap right there. they will charge you RM10 even if you just wanna go someplace nearby.

    1) Central Market + Petaling Street
    > with the LRT you get down at the Central Market station (Pasar Seni), it’s a super great marketplace, they sell lots of arts and crafts there, and has lots of food stalls outside. and Petaling Street is just within walking distance from Central Market. you’ll have lots of fun there.
    2) KLCC
    > of course! if you’re in malaysia you HAVE to see our Petronas Twin Towers. durrhurr. haha. but you can also do your shopping there. again, to get here you can simply take the LRT and get down at the KLCC station.
    3) KL Tower
    > this tower used to be the tallest building in Malaysia. but now, well, it’s not. haha. to get here unfortunately the easiest way i can think of is by taxi. but if you get down at the nearest LRT station and take a taxi from there it will be cheaper i think. KL Tower is just like any tower. get to the top and see the sights, that’s it. haha. but i don’t think it’ll be as crowded as the namsan tower. lol.
    4) Bukit Bintang
    > to get here, you need to take the LRT and then get down at an interchange station to take the monorail. with the monorail you can simply get down at the Bukit Bintang station. Bukit Bintang is essentially a shopping area. within this area alone there’s like, 3 shopping malls. you have Sungei Wang and BB Mall for like thrift store shopping, and then you can go to Pavilion for the high end stuff, then there’s Berjaya Times Square and also, if you’re a gadget freak you can stop by Low Yat Plaza. it’s like the biggest IT mall in Malaysia or probably the most famous one, idk. haha. all of these malls are like within walking distance.

    that’s all in KL. of course there are museums and the national zoo, national monument and the national palace, but i haven’t been to those places since i was little so i don’t remember where they are. haha! you can always ask the ME staff more interesting places or if you have the time for places outside of KL you can always go to Sunway which is nearby Taylor’s College if i’m not mistaken (?) haha. well, i think that’s all the places i can think of from the top of my head.

  6. since u guys are staying nearby subang jaya, i think i’ll recommend a REALLY FABULOUS , DELICIOUS, U DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY AFTER U EAT!!! chillli pan mee nearby that area.the shop name is called   RESTORAN CHILLI PAN MEE. yeah, as it is. and this is how it looks like http://winniesliladventures.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/chilli-pan-mee-1.jpg    http://winniesliladventures.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/chilli-pan-mee-31.jpg . U guys can just hand the address over to the taxi guy and hopefully he knows (HE BETTER DO LOl)

    47-1, Jalan USJ 9/5S,

    Taipan,

    47630 Subang Jaya,

    Selangor.

    (Same row as Nam Heong & CIMB Bank)if u think u can’t handle the spiciness, u can just NOT put the chilli. Yea, the chilli needed to be added by your own. :)well, i think that’s all from me for the food. because in malaysia , it’s always FOOD> TOURIST ATTRACTION

  7. too many food in malaysia. so i’ll just go with the basic. 
    breakfast: 
    roti canai [ro-tee cha-nai, the nai would sound like nine minus the second n]
    (variety since there with egg, sardine n stuff so ask the worker), 
    nasi lemak [nah-see lue-muck], 
    roti jala, nasi kerabu, nasi dagang … n more
    lunch: rice and various dished to go along with it
    tea time: fried bananas, apam balik, popiah, karipap, keropok lekor, n more kuih muih (koo-eh moo-eh)
    dinner: satay, yong tao foo, nasi lemak also can…. (most of us eat these food, no matter what time it is]

  8. Most tips have been stated by other users here. One thing you don’t have to worry about is the language barrier. If you’re just going to be in the city, majority (especially the younger) of the people speak fluent English.

    About cultural differences, well, I don’t think it differs much from Korea.

    1) Take off your shoes before you enter someone’s house (although we don’t provide slippers here). – If you’re visiting someone’s house, that is.

    2) As for drinking, it’s common courtesy here (or many parts of Asia or maybe the world) to not drink in public.

    3) If you really care for your skin, make sure to bring along your sunscreen (or you can buy it in any pharmacies/shopping mall here. It’s not difficult to find.) because of the typically hot weather. I’m a Malaysian & have been living in Malaysia for the rest of my life & I still walk around with sunscreen in my bag. /Honest

    4) Drink plenty of water. PLENTY. It might be almost as hot as the summer in Korea, but the humidity in Malaysia is high. You’d get dehydrated quickly.

    5) Eat all the food you want. We’ve varieties of food in Malaysia. Even Japanese & Korean (although Japanese food is easier to find). For Simon, if I’m not mistaken, they do sell ramen at Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus (at least they did when I went there last year). Although, I can’t guarantee it’ll taste as good as the ones in Japan. Western food are EVERYWHERE. However, I’d suggest our local delicacies the most as mentioned by many commenters here. Some additions to the food I’d like to suggest are: keropok lekor (크로퐄 레코) – made of fish, pisang goreng/피상 고렝 (fried banana), dendeng (덴뎅) – beef with spices & ayam percik (아얌 플칙) – chicken cooked with special spicy sauce. I don’t like durian, so I can’t help you guys about it.

    Can’t wait to see you guys! :D

  9. I CANT WAIT!!!! XDXDXDXD U guys should try satay~ it’s really good~ X)

  10. try saying ‘apa khabar ?’ or ‘saya sayang kamu !’
    its means how are you and i love you. haha
    enjoy your trip ! ;)

  11. i suggest you to read some articles or google about Malaysia. is about weather food people language or something that relate. i hope you have fun. tell story about Malaysians or whatever there Simon and Martina. love you guys, hope you guys have fun there. sorry i cant accompany you im a student haha :)

  12. im here! IM YOUR FAN FROM MALAYSIA! YOHOOOOOOO IM HERE GUYS. IM HERE DONT WORRY. XD

  13. if u want to eat nasi lemak, it’s best to eat it during breakfast and together with teh tarik. “kaw kaw pnya~~” malaysian said. most popular food in malaysia besides that are like roti canai, laksa penang, laksam, mee bandung, mee hailam and so much more. for beverages, we got many too like cendol, laici kang, air bandung and so forth. 

  14. soo_kimmy

    TOP 3 place when u r n MALAYSIA!!
    1 : KLCC.
    2. : Cameron Highlands.
    3 : MY HOUSE….. :) come2, i’ll treat u simon n martina!!!!!

  15. 1) Malaysia is a warm country, So you don’t have to bring your coats or jackets since its kind of warm. But its a bit chilly at night but its not cold.
    2) Food? I suggest Satay(its a meat/chicken/mutton on a skewer), Nasi lemak (Its coconut rice with nuts, sambal, egg. Usually eaten during breakfast), Asam Laksa (Its noodles with sour broth with fish) and if you like there are other cuisines such as Chinese (I suggest Yong Tau Foo) and Indian/mamak style. There are a lot of western food too. But if your searching for korean or japanese food it’s usually sell in shopping mall like Berjaya Times Square, There are All type of cuisines at the food court. There are a lot of spicy foods in Malaysia so if you like spicy food then its a bonus.3) If you want to go to places.If you want to go shopping you should go to Midvalley and KLCC. There are a lot of stuff that is sold there. If you want to search for cheap stuff then I suggest you should go to Petaling street. Tourist places.. I suggest the Menara KL Tower. If your lucky and did a reservation a week before, You can eat at the moving Restaurant at the top floor.4) About languages.. You don’t have to worry since most of the Malaysian speaks English. But if you want to learn a few simple Bahasa Melayu:’Apa Khabar?’ – How are you?’Selamat pagi/tengahari/petang/malam’ – Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening/Night’Terima Kasih’ – Thank you’Sama-sama’ -Your Welcome’Ya’ – Yes’Tidak’ – No’Nama saya __’ – My name is ___5) You need to take care of your belongings. Don’t leave Phones, Wallets and Handbags on the table while your eating. Its better you put your purse on your lap.  
    6) Things you should not do.. Don’t wear shoes in the house but if your in the office or restaurant its okay. You need to respect the elders. You can wear any clothes you like but you can’t wear too revealing clothes. You can wear tank tops and shorts but not the too revealing one especially the shorts. 

    7) If you see girls wearing a ‘tudung’ (You can search the picture in google if your wondering)  Its not a new thing. Most of the girls wear it especially grandma’s and ahjumma. It just mean that they are Islam and they are just covering up their skins. But there are a few islam girl who doesn’t wear tudung like me.

    8) If your staying in the hotel in KL. You should be really patient because of the traffic. There are a lot of cars mostly during the weekends and in the morning during weekdays.

    9) The sun usually rises between 6.50AM – 8AM and sets between 6.30PM-8PM. 

    I guess thats all. I hope you will have a great time in Malaysia!

  16. AmerulAkhyar

    everyone are talking about foods. here i’m going to tell u WHAT U SHOULD NEVER DO in Malaysia. never offer to hug or shake hand or any other kind of skinship with anyone of different genders accept if she/he offer to do the skinship first. 

  17. OMG. I will definitely be there. I am going to be part of this college next week. Can’t wait to see you guys there. The great news ever. Yeah!!!

  18. Maybe you can consider coming to Singapore after Malaysia since we’re just a bridge away from Malaysia (: (: (:

  19. Grace Lee

    Beside what  Kuchiki Zawya told you about taxi, you guys should also avoid taking taxi during peak hours, it’ll cost you a lot and you guys might be trapped in the traffic jam for hours. So it will be a waste of time and money

  20. Rebecca Okot

    I have to say Malaysia is one of the best travel experiences I have had. Friendly people and amazing food. I built up a huge mental database of must eat places and things to see while there. 

    May I ask how long will you be in Malaysia for? Will you be staying solely in KL? 

    The food is a pleasure to experience as is the culture and the country itself. Would love to give you all of the cool tips I picked up as I think the world needs to see more about the awesome that Malaysia has to offer. 

  21. SamanthaLimAIPEi

    How long are u guys staying in Malaysia??

  22. SamanthaLimAIPEi

    I study there!!!!!!!:)can’t wait to see you guys.i don’t mind bringing you guys around!!!!!!!:)

  23. Lizzylilly101

    Food ideas? Puhlease, Malaysia is the country of eating. No need for suggestions, just do this:
    TRY ALL THE FOOOOOOD
    8D

    My suggestion would be to dress for hot weather and bring lots of deodrant XD
    Malaysia’s a pretty hot and humid place for those who aren’t used to it :P

  24. This is for Simon: When you’re in Malaysia (this is going to sound like something you are not used to) try not to offer your hand for a handshake to a woman unless she offers her hand first. The Muslim religion (practiced by the majority in Malaysia) discourages physical contact between men and women who are not related.

  25. omggggggg…..iam been watching ur video for the whole 2 days now….n ur flying to my home land…..(sad mode…coz currently i am based overseas)….hope u guys gonna enjoy Malaysia…really love both of u…n spongy a lootttt :)

  26. honey_almond

    since everyone’s already stated all the good known foods, shall i recommend getting a papa roti bun? they are the shizz, i tells ya, especially straight outta the oven! 
    so if you smell a heavenly sweet slight coffee bakery smell and follow it, you’re bound to find one around (unless there aren’t any where you are going in malaysia, but it comes form malaysia, so it should be there right? right?)

    you have to try it! its the best! mmm, so buttery and crispy and soft all at the same time…

  27. I recommend that you guys eat butter prawn. They are mostly found in Chinese Muslim restaurants. And if you want to know a bit about Malaysia or Malaysians , go to youtube and type in ‘ Only in Malaysia ‘ . Watch the first video . And I would also advice you not to wear yellow in public , for safety reasons. Well that’s all I have to advice. Good luck in Malaysia !!!!!!

  28. Nur 'Atiqah Y

    Just like these people said, trying Nasi Lemak is a must! It’s so damn delicious. Char Koey Teow also is a must. Laksa too. We have various type of Laksa and my favourite is Laksa Johor. :D

    Do you plan going to KLCC? Please say yes, please! Taylor’s University is far from my place. I want to meet you so bad. Only KLCC is near with us. It only takes me 20 mins to reach there. :)

  29. Just some food recommendations from someone who visits there frequently (my dad is malaysian):

    – roti: canai, tissue, cheese, etc
    – beef rendang
    – satay: chicken, beef, pork(?)
    – teh tarik (malaysian milk tea)
    – milo ais (ice)
    – ais kachang (malaysian version of shaved ice)
    – nasi lemak
    – laksa
    – char kuei teow (fried noodles)
    – baku teh
    – otak otak
    – any soup noodles

    Although I’m sure the people you’re with will take you to a bunch of places to eat well! Every time I go to Malaysia I feel like a hobbit because I eat an average of six meals every day…

  30. OMG!!!! im in korea uni now .!! urrrghhhhh

    WARNING. IT’S SUMMERS. 36 DEGREE CELCIUS

     hahah. drink more water. its not the same as in korea.
     it’s humid, hot air( not breezy at all. sometimes yes) ,bring sungulasu!
    but the same thing as in korea that, summer sometimes it rains. hopefully when you guys here, its not going to rain. so you can enjoy the trips more <3

    *****
    advice for Martina, try wearing proper foundation/base make up. dont use the bb cream as it will melts off your face . i once used the precious minerals #2 . it gets cakey around noon.

    food you MUST try:

    1. nasi lemak   = 나시 르막
    2. roti canai = 러티 찬아이 . roti is 빵이에요
    3. laksa = 락사 ( it's a noodles.every state is different. so take your pick base on the picture. it's like some naegmyeon is diff in some state )

    for summer's food : MUST try

    1. ABC ( air batu campur. but just say ABC. ice desserts some treats for y'all sweet tooth)
    2. Cendol = 첸덜 

    you can get some fat and sweet mangoes here. bring them back to korea. hihi. 

     hope u guys dont get culture shock. like girls being too friendly with their bffs. hold/lingers arm and hands walking together and when they bit farewell they hug and kiss each other's cheeks. lol.but yeah.

    in Malaysia the society is very friendly. in case you need a help just wave your hand and smile.

    in case you guys have a chance to visit any night market ,try some local dishes. fried and spicy.

    enjoy your stay in Malaysia.
    <3

  31. Okay, So I’m doing a report on Malaysia for my class, and it would really help me out if you guys would post some stuff on the food and the culture as well as some of the sights. It would be really helpful to me. Can’t wait to see the video! Thanks!
    Molly Haugh

  32. Don’t behave like Block B would and you should be fine! :D

  33. I don’t even know where to start to help you. You should try nasi lemak, roti canai, laksa.. etc. There’s just too much to list. And you really, really, really need to eat durian. Most tourists hate it because of the smell. It smells perfectly fine to me. 

    You also need to wear modestly but make sure it’s not too tight because Malaysia is hot nowadays. Umbrellas are a must since rain comes down so suddenly sometimes.

    KLCC and KL Tower is a place you must go as a tourist. For shopping we have Mid Valley, Mines, The Gardens and Times Square. 

    Hope you enjoy yourself!

  34. no one mention our KUIH here?? Malaysia is rich of traditional Kuih (sorry im not sure what’s Kuih in english). Malaysian food is not only about roti and nasi lemak and durian. there’s a lot more. if you are staying in Malaysia for a long time, i suggest you go to other states as well and not only in Kuala Lumpur. what i’m trying to say is, there’s a lot more to discover in Malaysia :D

  35. wooww… u guise come to MALAYSIA….!!!! Please enjoy UR trip here…. and i can guaranteed that u guise have lots of fanz here…  

  36. Chow Shenn Kuan

    Yay! You’re finally coming to Malaysia! :):):):):):) Just a bit about the food in Malaysia: Since there are three main race in Malaysia, the Malays, Chinese and Indians, we have lots of types of delicacies. The Malay’s food would be the ‘nasi lemak’, Chinese’s food would be the Glutinous Rice Balls and the Indian’s food would be the roti canai and capati! Be sure to try them all!!! Trust me, you will definitely stuff yourselves with the mouth-watering food in Malaysia! :):):) Hope you will like it here in Malaysia! :)

  37. Ohz Noez!!!! I have classes to teach on that day!!! argh!!!

    Simon, Martina! why!!!??? >.<.. ANywhoz, I hope you have a good time in Malaysia and do do do try the amount of amazing food our lovely country has to offer..=)
    Nasi Lemak, Chicken Rice, Satay, Asam Laksa, Cantonese Kuey Teow….etc..
