EAT OR EEK? | MALAYSIA’S LIQALIC FRUIT POPSICLES BY M FRUITS

This is part one of my travel vlog about my recent visit to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to have a quick meeting and, of course, to see, taste and feel what Kuala Lumpur has to offer. The last time I visited Kuala Lumpur was in 2016 to attend a major meeting of the company that I used to work for and I did not have the opportunity to experience what they call the country that is ‘Truly Asia’, Malaysia.

The video below is a special episode of EAT OR EEK?, my version of a food review, where  I tried and tasted LIQALIC Fruit Popsicles by M FRUITS (a product of Malaysia). Is it EAT or EEK? Watch the video to find out. Have you tasted this yet? Did you like it? Let me know in the comments below.

It was a quick visit and unfortunately I did not get to see the outskirts or the countryside of Malaysia. I will be posting Part 2 (blog and vlog) soon to share with you the tourist spots that I was able to visit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Special thanks to Pullman KL Bangsar Hotel for the warm accommodations.

I need to go back to my laptop to resume editing. Signing out for now. Peace!

TRAVEL | MY VISIT TO LPPCHEA – LAS PINAS PARANAQUE CRITICAL HABITAT ECOTOURISM AREA

Here is a short video featuring my visit to the Las Pinas Paranaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area or LPPCHEA during the media familiarization tour initiated by the Department Of Tourism last January 30, 2018.

LPPCHEA is a 175-hectare secluded area off Manila Bay. It comprises two islands: Long Island and Freedom Island. LPPCHEA serves as a sanctuary to over eighty (80) species of birds, migratory and resident. It has a 36-hectare mangrove forest, a collection of indigenous plants and trees, coastal lagoon and beach area.

 

 

LPPCHEA was declared as a critical habitat on April 22, 2007 by Presidential Proclamation No. 1412 and was included in the list of Ramsar’s Wetlands of International Importance on March 15, 2013.

The Villar SIPAG (Social Institute for Poverty Alleviation and Governance) and The Wild Bird Club of the Philippines have been important partners of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in supporting and protecting LPPCHEA, the last mangrove island in southern Manila Bay.

LPPCHEA is a protected area.  If you are interested in visiting the bird sanctuary, contact the Conservation and Development Division of the DENR at +632-435-2509 or the Manila Bay Environmental Management Project in Metro Manila at +632-435-2410.
