Malaysia is a very multi-cultural country. In Kuala Lumpur are even living more Chinese than Malay people. For us this was one reason why we decided to visit the National Museum KL. Learning more about the history of the country that exists for 57 years as the independent state Malaysia was very interesting. We can definitely recommend visiting the museum.
40.000 years ago the first people settled down on the Malay Peninsular, but the state Malaysia exists for only 57 years. What happened in between? The National Museum in Kuala Lumpur will tell you a lot about the early history, the history about the colonial time and the short history of the country itself. In my opinion, the museum is worth a visit due to many reasons.
They offer a lot of information about the history but do not force you to read…

19 Struggles Of Having An Outgoing Personality But Actually Being Introverted..
Like many categorizing systems, the separatist thinking behind them attempts to firmly place us in one container or another. The flaw in these types of systems is that they don’t always take into account the middle areas of the spectrum. And any system is just that: a spectrum. I’ve long stated with unequivocal certainty that I’m introverted. My friends, however, look at me askance, because I’m actually very fun-loving and outgoing when I need to be. So on that introvert/extravert spectrum, I fall somewhere to the introverted side, but exhibit limited extroverted tendencies. Here is an article found on Thought Catalog by Brianna West that I have updated to reflect this:
1. You’re not anti-social, you’re selectively social. It’s not that you don’t like going out, it’s that you are very choosy about when, where, and for how long.
2. At any given point, you have one (maybe two)…

Coming home from a trip..
Remember the opening scene in the Hugh Grant film ‘Love actually’? Where they talk about the arrivals hall of Heathrow Terminal being one of the loveliest places to be, since it’s somewhere you rarely see hate… only love? Well, I was recently on the receiving end of an airport pick up, at Sydney Kingsford Smith, International airport, when some friends arrived from the UK for a week of sightseeing in our gorgeous city.
It was an interesting perspective for me, since I’m normally the one on the other side of the gate, but that hour or so in arrivals had my mind and heart in a flutter, as it brought back memories and feelings of the countless times I’ve both departed and arrived at Sydney airport.
As I waited I couldn’t help but be moved by the love that I was witnessing in Sydney. From the little boy who sprinted…

“We call people we know on Facebook our friends whether or not we know them in any real sense, or even like them. Most of your FB friends are just people you used to know.”
Our first friends are chosen for us. We don’t have a say in it. Our siblings are our first friends, or maybe the children of our parents friends. But we didn’t choose them. Your first friends were the kids your parents inadvertently decided on for you. That’s how it works when you are a baby. You can’t make those decisions for yourself. You are too busy learning to walk and talk and clap. Babies love clapping.
The older we get the more say we have in who is or isn’t our friend. We see personality traits we like and attempt to become friends with people who share those traits. When I was six I was friends with girls who enjoyed purple as much as I did. As…
