Where in the World is Matt Lauer-Day 3

“It may seem a bit unlucky, but we’ve moved ahead without you
as we take an “L” to welcome you to this bridge over dry land.”
I’m happy to report that I guessed correctly for Day 3 of Where in the World is Matt Lauer? I actually even ended up winning a $100 gift card to my local supermarket courtesy of a contest I entered through a TV station. So in case you weren’t able to decipher the clue, Lauer was in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia today. The unlucky part referenced 13 (an unlucky number), the number of timezones he moved ahead after leaving from Madrid on Day 2. In Malaysia people greet each other with the word “Helo,” which is one “L” taken away from the English greeting of “Hello” and the bridge over dry land is in regards to the Petronas Towers in which there is a sky bridge over dry land that connects the two towers. I unfortunately didn’t get to watch too much of the program today but Malaysia is a country I have always wanted to visit. Between its melting pot culture and its rich colonial past, it seems like a fascinating place. As always I’ll add it to the list of places to visit.

    Hi Julie-Malaysia definitely should be on your bucket list. It lives to its motto ” truly Asia” because it encapsulates the beauty of every other Asian countries, from beautiful beaches and resorts, to ancient tropical jungles, to cool mountain tea plantations, historical colonial buildings, rich culture of 3 main races, modern infrastructure and architecture, fantastic shopping opportunities, friendly and warm people, delicious and varied food, sunny weather all year round, the list goes on and on…..

      Hi Jaafar! Thanks for commenting! Malaysia is definitely on my bucket list. I love the diverse melting pot of Malaysian cuisine and as a huge history fan, I know I would adore seeing all of the colonial buildings. I also would definitely want to check out the Cameron Highlands and try some tea too πŸ™‚
