For all it’s shortcomings, I don’t think i could ever call anywhere else “home”. The warmth of it’s people (and weather, lol!) the glorious food, the beautiful nature, and the modern amenities are just some of the things that make me love Malaysia. I can’t even travel far without bringing some of it with me (hello Brahims!)
This year, I wanted to pay tribute to my beloved homeland, and after a few drafts, the clear winner that instantly brought Malaysia to mind was our national flower, the Hibiscus. Our limited edition Hibiscus series captures the vibrance and drama of our beloved national flower.
Did you know that there are over 200 types of hibiscus? The exact species of our national flower is the hibiscus rosa sinensis, which blooms all year round. Roselle juice also comes from hibiscus plants, and apparently helps reduce blood pressure. The hibiscus flower is also edible, and has a tangy, citrusy taste. I’m allergic to eating plants though, so if you’ve tried it, let me know!
In the meantime, let me bring you on a small tour of some of Kuala Lumpur’s beautiful landmarks. Ready? Let’s go!
