Citarasa Malaysia #ChooseMalaysiaPH

I haven't been everywhere, But I'll get there. -That's my favorite quote this 2018. I want to explore the world, to see natures unique beauty,  witness amazing sunsets/sunrise from different places, to experience another culture, to have a taste and enjoy the flavors of the world, and take home new learnings. I know I just started on this traveling journey. And I wish I'll go places that I really, really like, hope, and prayed for. Now, I specifically want to see and start with Asia. Being loaded with tasks at home like daily chores, blogging gigs, and mommy duties, even the "planning" thing for future trips is impossible to do and most of the time we set it aside and too bad sometimes we just forgot about it. Luckily, trade fairs are frequent happenings in our favorite malls.  Just take a look at this one titled Citarasa Malaysia.

Malaysia, Truly Asia

Citarasa Malaysia means "Taste of Malaysia"

Citarasa Malaysia, / "Citarasa" means "Tastes" / Therefore is also called as Tastes of Malaysia,  an event that I was in today. It took place at Glorietta's Activity Center and is open to the public from March 11 until March 18 only, This is Malaysia's Promotion Programme, showcasing Malaysia's delectable food,  products, cultural show, tourism, and so much more. With 25 companies from Malaysia and the Philippines, food and the halal section will participate in the exhibit and business matching programme.

  1. I haven't been to Malaysia but this post made me wanna tick it off my bucket list next year (after I deliver my 2nd baby) Hihi. Will definitely be joining the photo contest! Thanks Aci!

  2. Me too, so much busy even planning trips is hard to do. :) But hubby and I plan to go on a trip again but maybe in the Philippines first then Asia. :) Never knew Malaysia has a lot to offer. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wow! The only place I know to visit is the Legoland. Maybe if the kids get older, we can go to different places to experience their culture. Not only themeparks. 😅

  4. Interesting! Will catch the exhibit and I would really like to join the contest. I hope I will find time to do it. :)

  5. I haven't been to Malaysia! I don't see myself traveling a lot this year since I just gave birth, but my goal next year is to go around Asia.

  6. I love Malaysian food (except the super spicy ones). Can't wait to go back and eat Nasi Lemak, Kaya Toast from Old Town Coffee, and the street food at Jalan Alor. :D

  7. I've been to Malaysia 2x, specifically Johor, Kuala Lumpur, and Malacca. I think I like Malacca best. :)

  8. My son has been asking me for the longest time to take him to Malaysia for Legoland. Hopefully this trip finally pushes through this year, or maybe the next. :)

  9. Haven't been to Malaysia and like you I want to go and travel the world. Looks like I'll be joining the contest too. Thanks Aci!

  10. I feel you mommy! My passport still has zero stamps since I renewed it 2 years ago. Waaa! I've been to Malaysia only for Legoland. I hope to be back there someday and get a real taste of Malaysia.

  11. Malaysia Legoland is included in my bucket list to travel with my kids, sana soon!

  12. Travel has been a goal for the past few years though I haven't really been able to accomplish it to the degree that I'd like. Hopefully 2018 brings more opportunities. Malaysia looks like a great place to travel to.

  13. we were supposed to visit Malaysia after our Singapore trip 2 years ago, but unfortunately hindi natuloy :( I wish we could do it soon. Yung authentic food nila ang gusto ko matry.

  14. I haven't been to Malaysia. Would be so great to see it especially since it's just so near our country.

  15. One of my lists on my bucket list is to go abroad with my little one, we're planning to go to Malaysia soon. Thank you for this post.
