What truly makes a place special? Some might believe that distance actually improves the appeal of a destination – the harder it is to reach it, the more special it becomes. Others might stress on comparison, how different it is to their idea of normalcy – the more bizarre the culture, the more exotic the experience.
For me, it’s not the destination that matters – it’s the journey, and more importantly, the people. So when someone asks me what is so SPECIAL about Malaysia, my answer is simple and clear – its people.
And so, it is my pleasure to introduce a brand new initiative, courtesy of Moola, the first ever cash-back lifestyle programme, where we will feature a special breed of very interesting and engaging people – Malaysian bloggers. Through this series of articles, we will get to know them, their habits and their thoughts, and more importantly, to see the world through their eyes, to share in their experiences as they explore the gastronomic paradise that is Malaysia.
