So I'm back after a while... Sorry I haven't been posting. Anyway, I took a promo flight to Malaysia last weekend. Left on a Friday and came back Monday morning. (EARLY Monday morning)

Misha had to go there for work so my friend Ben and I accompanied her for a short but fun vacation.

So if you look at the photo above, those are the Petronas towers and they look amazing!!! Especially at night!!! 

Arriving in Malaysia, there were several thoughts entering my head. 1 was that their "Low Cost Terminal" looked really modern and I felt bad for ours :( 2 is that their roads are fantastic! I felt even worse. In terms of progress, ang layo na talaga nila... Sigh.

But I don't want to ponder on my sad thoughts. 

I had a fun trip! I have other pics but I have to get them from Ben and Misha.

The Malaysians LOOOOVE their MILO. The Milo brand there is HUGE!!! It's just like here in the Philippines but they drink more Milo there. It's like water for them. Below is a glass of Milo in a Malaysian restaurant. Misha had to order one. 

For food... They looove spicy food! But I can't handle the spiciness of the Malaysians. I had to settle for chicken rice. (Good thing I love chicken rice!) For me, their food is just ok. It's because I'm really not into the "gata" included in meats... Curry? Not a fan... sorry! If gata in dessert, GAME! 

I had a blast in MY! It's a beautiful country! I met a couple of Filipinos who have been staying there for a while now. Wish they could come visit here so that they can tell their friends that our country is beautiful too...

To end this post, I just want to point out that we have the capability to improve our country... We need to get people visiting our beautiful country! Tourism. Tourism. Tourism. My Tito Noy talked to us and he's really pushing for the Puerto Princessa underground river to be part of the new natural wonders of the world! You just have to text PPUR to 2861. Tourism will definitely increase if we make it in the top 7! Top 14 is also good but why not we aim for top 7???

Sorry to nag but if we are really serious about promoting our tourism among foreigners, I think we also should look on our Immigration policy and system - it's getting any worse.

I so admire our natural wonders in the Philippines. On the other side of the coin, I think we also need to buff up our Immigration system and policies. It is getting any worse for our foreign visitors.

i think the milo drink you had there is called milo dinosaur. i tried to duplicate that at home pero i've never been able to make a passing imitation of it.

I agree with you Pilosopong Komikero... We need to beef up systems and FIX the airports!!!
