KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 14 – Malaysia Airlines (MAS) is set to bring the excitements of Malaysia, particularly its food, to Australians via a new video series in partnership with Australian celebrity chef, Poh Ling Yeow. In the five-part documentary, the Malaysian-born will show viewers the unique appeal of Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia, including its best foodie hotspots and thriving street markets.
Poh said each episode of the series covered a different part of her culinary journey in bustling Kuala Lumpur and highlighted how seriously Malaysians take their food as well as why the city managed to surprise her on every visit. “Being a wonderful melting pot of cultures, Kuala Lumpur offers amazingly diverse styles of food from world-class dining to old school Malaysian Chinese cafes.
“It is a must-visit for any globetrotting foodie, perfect for a quick stopover or exotic holiday,” she said in a statement today. In the series, Poh also goes behind the scenes to witness how MAS produces an amazing 26,000 sticks of satay a day by hand in a special tour of the airline’s local catering headquarters.
The video series comes in the wake of the recent launch of Poh’s sizzling new signature dish for MAS, Nyonya Chicken Curry with a roti-style croissant, which is available on the airline’s flights departing Australia until Feb 28. There are now 81 flights a week direct to Malaysia from Australia and New Zealand with Kuala Lumpur the hub to more than 60 destinations worldwide.
