Every time I travel to Kuala Lumpur for work I try to take a few hours to go and visit a new place, preferably something really ‘local’ with a history. When traveling to places like this for work its very easy to forget that there is a whole world out there beyond the perimeter of the comfortable European-style 5 star hotel.

Gorgeous Little India that you see on pictures has undergone a rapid development through the years, but certainly did not loose its culture and traditions. For me, the charm of Little India lies in its architectural juxtaposition: modern architecture on one side and old shops on the other. This place began to be known as Little India during the British Colonisation and offers a complete glance into the Indian culture: breathtaking temples, Indian fabrics, saris, herbs and spices and of course very authentic places to eat. We sat down for a quick lunch at a local spot – they specialize in banana leaf rice. This dish is basically white rice is served on a banana leaf with an assortment of curries, vegetables, pickles and papadums.

Traditionally banana leaf rice should be eaten with your hands – I promise I tried, but it felt too strange so I asked for some cutlery 🙄 One thing I did not know and happy to have discovered, is that to show appreciation after a good meal, you are supposed to fold the banana leaf towards yourself – totally loved this 😂
Of course it always takes me forever to write a blogpost and typically I would share images on my IG way before the post goes live…. Many of you asked to tell you more about the outfit I’m wearing. These lightweight silk culottes and top are from a beautiful niche brand called Seek Collective. Seek Collective works with artisan communities that specialize in hand block printing, hand loom weaving and natural dyeing processes used to fabricate the clothes. Each piece is hand crafted and feels one of a kind. I often choose to wear Seek Collective when traveling as I feel that their clothes are perfect for hot climates and make great adventure partners ❤

    It sounds so wonderful in Kuala Lumpar! I had no idea where this was, I had to Google it. It’s so cool that there’s a little India in Malaysia and how cool is that, that you learnt something new about their culture, too! You look gorgeous by the way, I love your outfit! Thanks for sharing, girlie, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!

    I wanna visit Malaysia for work! That sounds so fascinating! Malaysia definitely seems like one of those places that is bursting with varying cultures and influences– so it really would be fascinating to see a Malaysian take on a little india. These photographs are beautiful btw– and I love you nail color!
