Tourism Malaysia Launched #MyBFFXoXo Campaign

Let me take you back in 2012 when I visited Malaysia for the first time upon the invitation of Tourism Malaysia. As a first-timer my only expectation is to see Kuala Lumpur, the Petronas Tower to be exact. Little did I know I will experience a once in a lifetime community immersion when I suddenly decided to do homestay at Pelegong Homestay in Negeri Sembilan. It was a wonderful experience.

In 2013, I went back to Malaysia upon the invitation again of Tourism Malaysia and Air Asia Zest for a familiarization tour in Sabah, Malaysia. We stayed in Pacific Sutera Hotel, explored Sapi and Manukan Islands, did snorkeling and helmet diving in Borneo Reef World. One of the highlights of this trip was a cultural immersion at Mari Mari Cultural Village in Sabah.
