    About Kuala Lumpar:

    Malaysia is like two countries in one, cleaved in half by the South China Sea. While peninsula flaunts bustling cities, colonial architecture, misty tea plantations and chill-out islands, Malaysian Borneo hosts wild jungles of orangutans, granite peaks and remote tribes, along with some pretty spectacular diving.

    Kuala Lumpur, the capital, with its space-age architecture, is well-known for great food. The city offers a fascinating mix of Asian culinary traditions. Chinese-Malay ‘Nonya’ fare, Indian curries, Chinese buffets, Malay food stalls and Dayak specialties, with some impressive Western-style food thrown in for good measure.

    Too bad for Genie, although she is getting better results than last year. Congratulations to Svitolina.
