Last year, during my 3 months long trip around Southeast Asia, I visited the Capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur.
In all honesty, while the rest of Malaysia is definitely beautiful and full of charm (you have already read about my love for Pulau Langkawi, where I spent New Year’s eve 2016), Kuala Lumpur was not my favorite city. Maybe it is my fault, but I could not find the real soul of the city. Although there is one thing that impressed me very much: the way the Malay Capital celebrates the happiest time of the year, the most gay feast of them all, Christmas.
In December, the whole city of Kuala Lumpur is in full swing for Christmas celebrations: a joyous triumph of lights, trees beautifully decorated, buzzing shopping malls full of Santa Clauses… the Malays know how to throw a big party in honor of Xmas! Even the gigantic airport of Kuala Lumpur, KLIA2, was full of decorations where even the Peanuts were invited to participate to this gay feast!
