"In Malaysia its never too late to dream a new dream"
The underrated gem of Asia, the country that is unique and full of surprises. It would be fair to say that, outside of Malaysians, a lot of people know very little about Malaysia, outside of maybe Meegorang and roti. However, that would be an extraordinary injustice toward everything the country offers; from its wealth of history and culture to its magnificent beaches, exhilarating nightlife, beautiful people, and of course its delicious and exotic cuisines. Malaysia is a nation built on diversity, trade, a wealth of natural resources, and culture.
One of the first things you will notice as you land in the country is its vast cultural and ethnic diversity. The country is predominantly Muslim, represented by its estimated 50% native Malay population, it hosts a myriad of other ethnicities and cultures, including a large Chinese and Indian population. While at the same time the country also holds numerous smaller tribal and indigenous ethnic groups. All of which reside in the country in harmony without compromising the uniqueness of their individual customs, linguistics, foods, and architecture; and ultimately enrich the country’s culture and creates its unique identity.
The country also holds a wealth of natural and strategic resources, and situated in the heart of Asia, Malaysia has unparalleled access to the world’s most important markets. It is not a surprise that the country is one of the fastest-growing economies in the Asian region, with exports contributing to a large portion of its economy. While electronics and natural exploits have been the country’s main exports, however in recent history, there has been noticeable demand for Malaysia’s cultural exports, through its diverse food offerings, its incredible tourism, and last but not least its fashion. With its vast cultural diversity, the country has a unique perception towards fashion and accessories, one that is reflective of its identity, but also adapted to its position as an economic powerhouse in the modern world.
