The Rafflesia is a unique and mysteriously alluring plant. No roots or leaves can be spotted as it is a parasitic plant and may even give off a pungent odour of rotting flesh when in bloom, and hence was nicknamed the ‘corpse flower’.

Contrary to popular belief, the world’s largest flower is not only found in Borneo and Sumatra but can also be found in Cameron Highlands.

Music that speaks from the soul

The Jonker Street in Malacca is always associated with Shopping, Heritage and also food. But many people take their eyes out, for the stories of the people in Jonker Street. The tales of the citizens in Malacca is something that you do not hear every day, and can sometimes bring hidden messages or values to ourselves.

Now, one example that would like to be brought upon is this Erhu player in the picture. It may seem as if the classical instrument player is just a regular woman with her strings, but actually, her eyesight is barely functional, meaning to say she is blind. But looking at her passionately embracing her talent and joy for music has been something that catches most hearts of the citizens of Malacca and tourists. This lady lives in Jonker Street and would go out of her ‘house shop’ and play the Erhu, which is a traditional Chinese two-stringed instrument. The erhu itself is a very delicate instrument and requires precision and practice to play it, but judging by the way she plays, you can tell she’s had plenty of that.

Music has a strong effect on emotions. So it can produce calmness or rage or sadness or happiness. It creates an understanding that goes beyond words. All the soul seeks is expansion. All the mind knows is the information the body obtains through the 5 senses. Music helps create the emotional conditions for soul expansion as it makes you calm, happy and serene so that you are well prepared to go within in your meditation. It doesn’t matter whether you have a perfect fully functional body or any disabilities. When you have your passion, you will strive and give your very all in order to achieve your goals.

The voices of the people in Jonker Street is something that is said to be original and authentic. You can listen to it from different people and different versions but having to feel it , listen to it and understanding it yourself is an experience and an adventure worth taking.

The Story of Mr Abu the Noble Cobbler

One of Mr Abu’s favourite places .

In a city full of energetic and noisy honk sounds made by thousands of cars on busy roads of KL, lives Mr.Abu, an old man who is also a cobbler. He loves to donate shoes to the kids who cannot afford to buy them. Mr.Abu spends all his time making shoes and donate it to the poor. This makes him feel happy and blessed and at the end of the day, knowing that he cannot give them anything fancy but just a pair of shoes.

Mr.Abu never stayed in one place, he keeps shifting from one place to the another in the bustling city of Kuala Lumpur. Usually, he would go to places such as outside of convenience stores or banks, the places where he knows the homeless people would usually be at. Mr.Abu claims that he has done this for 6 years but on no occasion, he eventually gets tired of making shoes and decided to offer them to the needy.

When we asked about his stories, there was one story that really touched our heart. A very heart-wrenching story, I would say. One day he noticed a little boy who was sitting in one corner and crying. He immediately rushed towards him and asked him why he was crying. The boy looked at his face with the tears in his eyes and replied to Mr Abu that he had starved himself for a few days and did not eat anything. Mr.Abu felt sorry for him and he quickly went inside the 7-Eleven convenient store and got him a bunch of food and snacks for him to fill his tummy. The boy was so happy and couldn’t thank him enough.

A few weeks later, Mr.Abu saw the boy in very good shape, and surprisingly, the boy bought him a wooden stool for him to sit on while making shoes, new shoes for him to give to other kids, and also a hat to protect him from the heat of Kuala Lumpur. The kid told him that the food Mr.Abu donated to him, provide him some energy to work extra hours and gain more money and he was so thankful on the day he met Mr.Abu.

The story teaches us to have some courage and be kind to those who are in need. The more you give, the more you will get back. The story gave a huge impact on our team and we decided to tell his story to the world, with permission from him of course. The stories within the concrete jungle are something worth to be listened to. Mr.Abu and other people inside of Kuala Lumpur each have their own story and golden values that they hold onto, which we can also take and make it ours.

Challenges in traveling to Malaysia – Language Barrier

Although it is hard to believe everything in life have their own challenges, and this includes travel to this beautiful country, Malaysia. There’s a lot of good things that Malaysia famous for, but the fact that everything in the world has their own good and bad so we want to share to you another perspective of Malaysia that a traveler normally has to face.

Wei macha, you want to makan here or tapau?

The first and foremost is the language barrier. Malaysia mixed everything here and turns out it’s not only the food. Most Malaysian can converse in English, but as you can see above, Malaysia is so unique that they create a language on their own. Three different languages in one sentence sound impossible to you? But to Malaysian, it wasn’t.

So how to overcome this?

Next, the very simple gesture are to laugh and smile a lot. Luckily, this body language is universal. An easy going demeanor makes it much easier to make it through a conversation consisting mainly of gestures and miming. And the best part that you should experience in Malaysia is, the power of hand. I mean your hand can seem powerless right now but in Malaysia, people take serious the hand gestures than any place.

Next, as any traveller that need to learn some basic words before traveling and so do you. Learning new language could also be an advantage to you, I mean at the very least you maybe can get things at cheaper price, you don’t have to go through all the hassle to find a toilet, or you could create a new relationship with the local people. So say yes people to this language.

Can I buy this? – Boleh saya beli ini?

How much is this – Berapa harga ini?

What is your name? – Siapa nama awak?

Can I go there – Boleh saya pergi ke sana?

Where is Kuala Lumpur – Di mana Kuala Lumpur?

Malaysia is such a beautiful country – Malaysia ialah sebuah negara yang cantik

And hey, if you really can’t stand the language barrier, there are always translator apps for you to use. It proved especially useful especially when the language uses an entirely different alphabet, like Greek. And one of the apps is Jibbigo, that allows you to speak or type the word or phrase you want to be translated, and with just a few taps, a both written and oral translation is now ready.

Challenges can exist in every possible way for traveler especially when they’re 1000 feat far from home. But that should not stop you from having your traveling adventure, at least. Or maybe you can have the short way and book the adventure with us. With us, we’ll make the local adventure to be easier. Read more on our website, Byloka.

Take Note of The New Departure Levy for Travellers Leaving Malaysia Starting June 2019

In Budget 2019 that was released at the end of 2018, Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng announced that they had plans to implement a departure levy on travellers leaving the country. The tax is to be implemented on the 1st of June 2019. Travellers leaving for ASEAN countries will be charged RM20 and RM40 for other countries. This levy is different from the passenger service charge (PSC) that is already in place and imposed by Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) to run the operations of the airport.

Lim has also stated that the purpose of this new tax is to encourage domestic tourism.

Passenger Service Charge (PSC), with effect from 1st July 2018

Proposed Departure Levy in Budget 2019, with effect (if Bill is passed in Parliament) from 1st June 2019

In an update statement released recently, the Finance Minister clarified that the new departure levy will only affect air travellers leaving the country. This includes commercial planes as well as privately owned jets. He also said that the tax amount will be decided at a later time as the government is currently focusing on the Bill’s infrastructure.

In addition, pilgrims travelling overseas to complete their Umrah and Hajj for the first time, will be exempted from paying the tax. This decision might be a response to Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan’s inquiry and debate of the Bill on April 9th, that travellers going to ASEAN countries, senior citizens, students studying abroad, and those travelling abroad to perform Umrah and Hajj should be exempted from this departure levy.

A few parties have been questioning the effect of the new tax on Malaysia’s international tourism. Datuk Seri Bung Mokhtar Radin said that, with the implementation of the new tax, maybe nobody would want to visit Malaysia anymore.

There have also been concerns from netizens that with the new tax, foreign tourists might favour Malaysia’s neighbouring South East Asian countries instead.

In response to those concerns, Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Datuk Mohamaddin Ketapi has said that the tax will not affect Malaysia’s tourism industry. He claimed to reporters that almost every other country or nation has imposed a travel or tourism tax and it has yet to affect the tourism industries of those nations.

He also said that the money collected from the levy will prove to be a great benefit for Malaysia, as the money will be used to boost development of the country and its people.

Remember to watch out for the tax if you are leaving Malaysia by flight starting on the 1st of June. You wouldn’t want to be stranded at the airport!
