  3. 3. Weather Kuala Lumpur is almost always hot and humid. There is rain throughout the year, but March to April and September to November are the wettest periods of the year. Kuala Lumpur has a wide range of ethnic diversity, which means that there are many festivals and activities of many culture and races. These activities make transport more crowded than usual. Astonishing is that the public holiday is a good time to join them. It is because most of the local people will go to the beach or hiking. In Kuala Lumpur, the temperature is always 30 degrees or more. It is so hot. For less than five minutes, we sweated but unlike Hong Kong where is hot but less humid. Yet we did not feel hot when there were showers. In addition, Kuala Lumpur, from time to time it rains. However the sky is not dark. It is sunny but sometimes raining at the same. This weather is special. Kuala Lumpur was often sunny, almost we met the sun. If you go to Kuala Lumpur, I think you should bring an umbrella and sun block lotion as well. 3
  4. 4. Architecture There are so many different types of architecture that we can’t find in Hong Kong. The palace and numerous Islam temples are often attractions to tourists. It is special to Hong Kong people because there is no emperor. We have no king and no palace in Hong Kong. The Palace in Malaysia It’s a stately place where the emperor lives in. The architecture of the palace included an onion-shaped head (the doom) which represents Malaysia is an Islamic country. The palace also contains some western architecture because of Malaysia was a British colony before. It is interesting to see western style architecture and Islamic architecture mixing together in one area. 4
  5. 5. Islam Temples in Malaysia Malaysia is an Islam country. We can see Islam temples everywhere in Kuala Lumpur. Not only temples but also many buildings are built with an onion on top. It is interesting to see hotels, government buildings, schools and hospitals are built with an onion head. Landmark in Kuala Lumpur The most famous landmark in Kuala Lumpur is the Twin Tower. It is a shopping mall which is built like a pair of twins. The two buildings look the same. And there is a bridge to connect the two towers together, just like twins going hand in hand. Therefore, we called it Twin Towers. 5
  6. 6. Food In Malaysia, there are lots of famous food, like Bak Kut Teh, Nasi Lemak and Laksa. We liked the coconut milk rice a lot. Malaysians like to eat gold fish a lot. There was one at every dinner when we were in Kuala Lumpur. Most of us did not even touch the fish. It looked a bit awkward to eat a gold fish. 6
  7. 7. Bak Kut Teh Bak Kut Teh is a popular Chinese dish in Malaysia. It is believed to have originated from the Fujian province of China. Bak Kut Teh is typically eaten with steamed white rice. Chinese tea is the preferred beverage when having Bak Kut Teh, as it is believed to help wash down the oil and fat from the dish. Nasi Lemak Coconut-flavored Rice Meal - is rice cooked in coconut milk with aromatic pandan leaves. It is typically served with Sambal Ikan Bilis - fried dried anchovies cooked in a dry sambal sauce, and garnished with cucumber slices, hard boiled egg and roasted peanuts. Traditionally packaged in a banana leaf, it is usually eaten as hearty breakfast fare. 7
  8. 8. Laksa Thick rice noodles are served in a tangy fish soup/gravy. Not at all fishy, the soupy gravy is made with mackerel and lots of aromatic herbs. Fresh garnishing of shredded cucumber, lettuce, pineapple, onion and fragrant mint leaves finishes the dish. In general the term Laksa refers to Malay style laksa, sometimes called Malay Laksa. There are slight variations in different parts of the country. The key ingredient is tamarind, used as a souring agent, giving it a tart tangy taste. This version of laksa from the 'hawker food capital' - Penang, is especially famous and well known as Penang Laksa or Penang Assam Laksa. Laksa is not expensive and you can find stalls selling almost everywhere in Kuala Lumpur. 8
  9. 9. Nationality Malaysian Malaysians account for half of the population in the country. Malay is their formal language, and almost all citizens speak, read and write Malay. Malaysian born people are automatically Islam in religion if parents do not make a choice. There are two legal controls in this country: the national law and Islamic law. Mr. (our tour guide) is a Malaysian-born Chinese. Chinese Malaysia Chinese ancestors were mostly from mainland China coastal areas such as Fujian, Guangdong, Canton, Fujian, Hakka, Teochew, and Hainan are often seen in Malaysia. After so many years, all ethnic groups intermarry with each other. It is amazing to see most Chinese speak Cantonese, Hakka, Fujian in Kuala Lumpur. We just wondered if it was because of the movies, drama programs and songs that make Malaysian Chinese so talented in languages. Indian Many Indians in the country are gardeners or labourers. Very often Indian children receive less education than the other ethnic groups. But many top intellectuals are Indians. Mr. told us that many famous doctors are Indians in Malay. 9
  10. 10. Culture Food Culture Different races of people live in Malaysia, so here have many different parts of food delicacies. Malaysia's main dishes can be divided into four categories: Malay, Chinese, Indian and Nyonya dishes. The world famous f coconut rice and satay (chicken, beef, and lamb skewers) are Malay and the chicken rice is Chinese. Festival Culture Christmas: The tropical weather and the friendly nature of Malaysians guarantee that Christmas is a very warm affair. Like others around the world, Malaysian Christians attend church services, hold family dinners, sing carols and exchange gifts at Christmas. Visitors will find the spirit of Christmas very much alive at many Christian homes as well as the myriad shopping centres, hotels and restaurants catering for this joyous occasion. Chinese New Year : Chinese New Year marks the first day of the lunar calendar and is celebrated over a 15-day period. Mandarin oranges and plum blossom stalks are used as decorations in Malaysian Chinese homes and shopping complexes for prosperity and good luck. Animated lion and dragon dance performances accompanied by energetic drums, gongs and cymbals add to the festive air. On Chinese New Year's eve, family members hold reunion dinners followed by 'open houses' for relatives and friends. The Birthday of His Majesty The Yang Di-Pertuan Agong As a constitutional monarchy, the nation celebrates the official birthday of His Majesty, the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong (the King of Malaysia) on July 14, 2007. This auspicious occasion is marked by the bestowal of state honours and awards to those who have rendered exceptional service to the country. Highlights include the “Trooping of the Colours” by the armed forces and a host of cultural shows and exhibitions. If you have time to visit Malaysia, don’t miss this occasion. 10
  11. 11. Our Feelings When visiting Kuala Lumpur, I saw so many different kinds of buildings. The style is western as well as Islamic, a mixture of both. Beside the architecture, the next important activity is eating! Malaysia is a place where ‘produces’ many good durians that we found the best one in this trip. I am not very interested in durians, but I tried some of them! It was creamy and the after taste was very impressive. It is a meaningful place and I learn many new things in this trip. 5D The tour has opened my eyes. I was most impressed by the Petronas Twin Towers and the Batu Cave. Twin towers is a very beautiful sightseeing and shopping place. Just looking outside from the towers, we felt the wonders and understood why it represents the country. In the evening, Kuala Lumpur is a city of lights and the scenery is very beautiful. Batu Cave is so big. The stairs are long and narrow. It took me almost 10 minutes to go up to the top. And when I looked back, I could see the beautiful scenery. Although Kuala Lumpur is hot, we were very happy. 5D In this study tour, I learn a lot about Kuala Lumpur such as local culture, local food and Islamic buildings. Among all, the most memorable is to climb up 271 stairs to go to the Batu Cave. I learned how to be patient or else I had to stay on the coach and missed the beautiful scenes there. On the whole, I like this tour a lot. I hope I will have another opportunity to participate in another study tour. By the way, the trip made me feel very cheerful as I met many new friends here! 5D 11
  12. 12. I was very glad that I could visit Kuala Lampur and Malaka with my classmates. In this tour, I saw grand places, such as Petronas Twin Towers, Batu Caves and Istana Negara. They are very beautiful. We also improved our English communication skill there since we tried to talk to people there. Besides, we went to the Jalan Alor to eat different local food. This street is so prosperous as many visitors like to go there to sightsee and eat famous food. I think it is an unforgetable experience. 5D The trip made me feel very happy, because it was the first time I went to Kuala Lumpur. Kuala Lumpur has a lot of food, such as durians. Kuala Lumpur is very different from Hong Kong. I like Kuala Lumpur because the buildings and food are very unique. Hong Kong is very international. I also tried the Indian henna tattoos on my palm and forehead. It was very interesting 5D If you ask me,what is my favourite country?I will tell you that my favourite country is Malaysia. For me, Kuala Lumpur is a place which I will not forget .In Kuala Lumpur, I saw many things which I haven’t seen before. For example, I saw big ox horn bananas. They are really as big as an ox horn. Moreover, this trip made me know how to protect our environment. In Malaysia, people do not use air-conditioners at home. If they feel hot, they will eat fruit or go swimming. In other words, they will find other ways to cool down. Therefore, Hong Kong people had better do the same thing like them to protect the environment! 5B 12
  13. 13. Malaysian Muslims go to a mosque to worship god five times a day, even in a hotel. I found an arrow telling the direction to worship god if you want to pay. In addition, some temples have amplifiers to broadcast Muslim songs to the public. We are not Muslims, when we hear these songs, we find it funny. There are many delicious food for you to try in Kuala Lumpur. Don’t miss them. 5A When I was in Kuala Lumpur, I thought the four-day journey was too short. In these four days, I learned many new things about the local culture, food and local people’s living habits. Many Malay girls wear masks outside home. We could only see their eyes. I could only recognize their dresses. I tried many local food. They are always spicy. Furthermore, in Kuala Lumpur, I saw many buildings with onion heads on top. This tour is an eye-opening tour to me. I experienced many new things that I will not have in Hong Kong. I enjoyed this trip. 5C 13
