What to wear on a sightseeing and ‘makan’ trip?

We know many Malaysians often enjoy a quick getaway to Malacca or Penang for sight seeing and eating adventure. You don’t want to wear the wrong shoes or attire; it could potentially spoil your trip. Knowing you’ll be taking a lot of photos, we show you how to put together a stylish yet comfortable outfit. Here is our take on what you can wear when you are out and about!

Sight seeing


1. Beekeeper Felt Hat, RM139, TOPSHOP
When traveling, always be prepared for bad weather.  Take hat with you in case the sun is too hot. It keep your hair in place too.

Bring along a scarf with you in case you need to keep yourself warm on a breezy day or when the aircond in the car is too cold.

Spending the whole day outside will make you sweat. Wearing something really light can help to mitigate the discomfort.

5. Sunblock, RM45, RAKUTEN

Wear a watch that is water resistant and durable.

    I’m just so so sooooo glad that i’ve found this website, I’ve search for tons of websites and blogs online just to look for a website like this, full of the information for style, health, and food.But the most importantly, it is all based on what we can find in MALAYSIA. It’s very hard for me to describe and express how excited I am now to have found this. Keep up the good work! :)

    Hi Peyshy!

    Thank you for dropping by! JewelPie is one today! A few years ago, I was looking and for all the information on things that we can actually buy in Malaysia. Exactly a year ago, I thought I’ll just publish what I compiled and have been doing for myself. I really doubted if a home living magazine would work or anyone would be interested. So your comment really means a lot to me. Thank you :D
