Merry Malaysia: Where to Shop?

Shop to your heart’s content at the eminent areas in Kuala Lumpur. DSC06404

It was Christmas season when we visited Malaysia and some of their shopping malls were beautifully adorned with colorful and sparkling ornaments. However for some, since they don’t celebrate Christmas, it is as plain just like an ordinary day. But, that’s the reason as well why we visited this Muslim country, to know more about their culture at this time of the year.

So, where to shop?
