Online Shopping for Malaysian Products and Brands
In most major metropolitan areas you can find specialty stores catering to eclectic tastes, and Asian grocery stores and supermarkets are among the most fascinating. If you've never been in one, you should try it sometime! There are lots of interesting and unusual (for us) items there. But many people don't live in areas not served by Asian markets. If that's the case for you, you might try searching the Internet for online shopping opportunities to find the items you are looking for.
If you're not familiar with Malaysia, it's a country in Southeast Asia and consists of what were once known as Sarawak, British North Borneo, and the Federation of Malaya. Malaysia is near the equator, so it's known for its tropical climate and beautiful flora and fauna, and that has an impact on their many national products. Malaysia is also known for their manufacturing. They border on the Strait of Malacca, which is one of the most important shipping lanes in the world, making exporting their goods easy for them. As a result, Malaysia exports rubber, palm oil, timber, cocoa, pineapple, pepper and tobacco.
Among the unique and interesting items you can find in Malaysian online stores are special reflexology sandals that are designed for healthy feet as well as comfort. There are also numerous kinds and designs of beach sandals created for comfort and style. Ultra-lite clogs and thongs are also available at amazingly reasonable prices, and are available for adults as well as for children. The process of making Batik fabric is one of Malaysia's national art forms, so check out the beautiful batik shawls in a variety of colors. Batik fabric is also popular for sarongs and shawls. Note the Malaysian people make batik a bit differently from what is found in the Caribbean. They use small needles to put wax on the fabric, which makes intricate designs once the fabric is dyed and the wax is removed. The result is breath taking!
Besides footwear and clothing, I find it fascinating to peruse the grocery sections of foreign e-stores. We're so used to always buying the same familiar things that we forget that there's a whole exciting world out there. Browsing all those Malaysian candies, snacks, coffees, nuts, noodle mixes, spices and things I don't even know what they are is so much fun. And thanks to online shopping, you can sample all those goodies.
