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*

  3. Damn everyone’s said everything I could think of lol xD

    Just remember to go to Kinokuniya at the Petronas Towers, I swear that place is heaven on earth…..perhaps buy some Malaysian manga/magazines at a roadside stall as a souvenier?

    Dress modestly but lightly, if that makes sense? Not too much cleavage, not too much legs, and you’re good. Well most of the stuff you wear is pretty decent anyway.

    Umm….this is gonna sound horrible but try not to walk around with too many valuables dangling off your arm or an equally exposed place. You’re gonna attract enough attention as it is, don’t need any unnecessary ‘friends’ :S

    Pro tip: Some toilets require you to pay to enter, or might not have tissue available inside, so make sure to always have spare change and tissue at all times :)

    Try looking for some vegetarian meals, they make really cool fake meat out of tofu ;D

    But most of all, have fun!!!! Malaysia is so beautiful and rich in culture, consider yourself extremely fortunate to be able to visit like this :)

  4. STREET FOOD IS ALWAYS THE BEST! popia basah, keropok lekor, apam balik, putu bambu, cucur udang, cakoi, satay, char kuey tiaw, and the list goes on forever…. If you wanna try refreshing drinks, I’ll suggest on air kelapa(coconut drink), cendol and air tebu. There’s also ABC a.k.a air batu campur, which is quite similar to pat bing soo if I’m not mistaken.
    Places to go: Bangsar is shopping heaven, Pasar Seni is quite a nice place to buy souvenirs and stuff, Bukit Bintang area is quite the same as Apgujeong, KL Tower is for sightseeing.
    The weather’s crazy these days; one moment it’s extremely hot then it starts to rain. Therefore bringing an umbrella/raincoat with you all the time will be super handy.
    Oh, and, If you’re hailing for a cab, it’s better if it uses a meter in it. It would be cheaper I guess. Enjoy your stay! :D

  5. I like your idea of thin cloth – since revealing clothes might not be a great idea, as most Malaysians dress pretty modestly. 100% Cotton does wonders ;)

  10. EAT EVERYTHING YOU CAN !!! IT ALL TASTE GOOD !!! go eat Roti Canai

  11. I see that most people here have already said two of the most popular food choices in Malaysia, which is Nasi Lemak and Roti Canai. 

    So instead I shall recommend you to try something called Hokkien Mee. 
    It’s usually really good in some hawker stores. (: 
    Also, in case both of you are interested, you should try going to Sunway Lagoon or Genting Highland. Both are theme parks and both are equally enjoyable. (Genting Highland has a casino there though)

  12. Yes Sir Simon, I believe it is the same kind of deal.

  14. Try as many local food/delicacy as you can! Cause all of it is SUPER DUPER awesome :D The list will go on and on and on and on if I were to begin listing them down :S But yes, you should try at least roti canai, satay and nasi lemak. 

    Do pack thin clothes though, it could get awfully hot :(

  18. one main thing you must understand about malaysia is we have 3 main races which is Malay,Chinese and Indian all living in the same country .making malaysia filled with many different culture & food & also kindda lots of public holiday (Hari Raya for muslim, chinese new year, deepavali,christmas and etc). When it comes to Malaysia buildings, it must be the petronas twin towers. And the weather here is hot or sometiems rainy seasons so leave any long sleeve shirts or thick material clothes. Since the event is at taylors university lakeside campus, there’s many things around the campus too. Try calling ukiss Kevin and ask him about malaysian food ! hahhaha

  19. talyor lakeside campus near sunway, better go there cause is the best place where you shop till you drop!

  20.  For breakfast if you don’t want the usually rice triangle thing, you can have roti pisang (sort of like a pancake with banana, fried), I’m British and I went to Malaysia for three months and it was on of my favorite foods and it was really cheap. They also sell fruit and fresh fruit juice everywhere and its always really cheap. You can also get a selection of curries on a banana leaf as a plate, you really should use your right hand to eat it but they will often give you a fork and spoon if you look foreign(There are no knives). Korean and Malay junk fast food is pretty samey, lots of corn, ice cream and waffles in supermarket cafes and shopping malls.

    • i’m from singapore and i love durians! but i don’t think most foreigners can stand the taste/smell of it… 

      4 years ago
    • Ha!  From all the comments I’m reading, I’m scared about trying it!  What if our reactions aren’t the best and we wind up offending someone.  Oh noes!

      4 years ago
      • don’t worry!! a lot of malaysians can’t stand it either!! but you should definitely try because well, you guys are adventurous so why not?!! haha. for me, i can’t eat more than one bite of it. because inside the durian there’s more sections and each section has several pieces, so i can only eat at most one single piece.

        my tip is, don’t EVER take a huge big bite in the first try. you’ll feel like you wanna puke. the texture is weird kind of goo-ey and sort of like cheese, the taste is very rich and the smell is super strong! some hotels don’t even allow us to bring durians into the hotel because of the smell. but, once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty delicious. if you wanna ease your way into durian tho, you might wanna try some durian ice cream. it’s sweet and delicious!

        no one’s gonna be offended. we’re pretty laid-back most of us would just laugh it off. lol.

        4 years ago
      • When you’re about to eat some, don’t expect a fruit taste. Imagine it’s cheese, you’re gonna stand it better. Both the taste and the creamy consistency are really surprising.

      • I live in Malaysia and we don’t get offended if people don’t like durian xD Heck, I can’t stand it myself… It’s one of those “love or hate” things…

        4 years ago
      • they call it the “king of fruits” there.

        lets just say the smells is terrible, the consistency is of brie cheese or custard… but other than that its tastes good. you should try it haha

        4 years ago
      • You should definitely try it. I have a love/hate relationship with it because it tastes good but the smell gives me a headache. Kinda like beer i guess.

        Soy un dorito.

      • omg durian smells so bad, it’s the ONE thing that Andrew Zimmern (Bizarre Foods on the Travel Channel) cannot stand…and that guy eats animal balls. LOL.  Eat at your own risk…I don’t like being around it, and they even have hotel signs telling guests never to bring it to their rooms 

        4 years ago
    •  I LOVE THAT FRUIT!!! It’s sweet and goo-ey and oh so delicious.

      Yes, if you guys are doing a mini-WANK or the like, you must do durian. Even if you don’t like it, your expressions alone will be enough. :D Most foreigners despise it, because of the smell/texture, but since you guys also like a lot of fermented korean food, maybe you’ll amazingly like it, and then you’ll have my respect forever.

    • I think this suggestion was made with hands rubbing together and an evil laugh.  Durian is the stuff of the devil.  THE DEVIL!  EL DIABLO! 

      4 years ago
    • Hahah, Simon and Martina can so do a WANK challenge with Durian. Most foreigners can’t stand the taste/smell of it. XD

      • omg.. i can already imagine their weird expression when eating it.. lol.. but hey, chillex simon&martina, durian is not that bad.. it is actually one of my fav fruits.. u guys should definitely try it.. ^^

        • hehe, I tried durian and I didn’t like it at all. ^_^ It’s really a fruit where it’s more like you like it or you don’t like it.

  27. Omaigat! You’re coming to Malaysia! I..I…I live there..here..uhh..I live in Malaysia haha
    WONDERFUL ADVENTURE NOW MALAYSIA! Lol I’m getting excited now 

    In Malaysia, I guess that the best food to try out would be Nasi Lemak. (NO 1 MALAYSIAN FOOD!) . It’s rice infused with coconut milk and pandan leaves with spicy sambal (kind of chili sauce/paste) You  would now when you get here, just ask for nasi lemak :) Next is the laksa, it’s noodles in a fish soup thingy oh what the hell I’m not good at explaining. lastly you should try out the sate. It’s chicken/meat skewers and you dip it in a nut sauce. 

    No specific advice tho. You can be as free as you want here in Malaysia.
    Hope you guys have fun. Sorry if this is all I can offer
