This experience is catered to the intellectually curious travelbugs. It will be suited to cultural and trivia buffs who are looking to add dimension to their understanding of the Asian life, it's traditions and local customs. Your experience begins with a short introduction to Malaysia, her people and her geography. We will then proceed to visit some of the oldest houses of worships in Kuala Lumpur, namely a Hindu kovil and a humble out of view Chinese temple. Shutterbugs are welcome to help themselves to some of the best street pictures in Kuala Lumpur! Participants will also be able to experience making a flower garland offering. we will be exploring fun facts like "Do you know that a Indian (Hindu) temple is modeled to mirror the cosmo?" or "Is Feng Shui mere cultural superstitions?" We will be exploring the culturally correct way to enter a temple and the reasons behind these practices. We will then stroll to old mill street aka Chinatown where we would stop by a traditional chinese medicine store to learn, smell and perhaps sample some chinese herbs. Experience ends with recommendations of activities around the area
I am: A travelbug. With a strong curiosity towards understanding customs and traditions. Histories are the collective stories of the people. As narratives, it need never be dull! I was: A backpacker! Lugging my way across South East Asia (I'm missing Brunei & newly independent Timor Leste), spending weeks traveling the length of Eastern China South Korea, and the cultural triangle of Japan. I had: Lived in the USA on a work and travel program. It was the journey that instilled in me a confidence when it comes to solo backpacking. I had also had the opportunity to live in Colombia on a Spanish scholarship, so yo hablo un poco espanol! More importantly, I made one of my childhood bucketlist to visit the Nazca lines and climb machu picchu!! I am a licensed city guide and founder of "Mousedeer Journeys & Events" on Tripadvisor!
