Sometimes it takes a few people from the outside to really open our eyes on things we should appreciate more in our country. Often times, we fail to realise that there are many things in our own country to be proud of.
Previously, we came across an American woman who was blown away after seeing our Pavilion KL Mall and educated her followers that Malaysia is not a third world country as they thought it was. Now we have another excited tourist who is blown away by something here just moments after arriving at one of our airports. Watch here:
Indonesian TikToker Lili Nielsen or @liliannielsen_ posted a video on her profile showing her arrival in Malaysia at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2). The TikToker shared her excitement with her followers when she found out that KLIA2 is not only an airport but also mall; Gateway@KLIA2. The video has gotten a lot of attention from mostly Malaysian netizens with 630.6k views, 78.8k likes and 1.2k comments.
In the video, the content creator couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw that there was an H&M outlet. She then proceeded to enter the clothing shop to see how big it is. Lilian shared with her followers how badly she wanted to shop there but couldn’t as she was not travelling alone. She then showed other shops around Gateway@KLIA2 and hopes airports in Indonesia will be like this as well.
Malaysian netizens commented on the viral video with most welcoming the excited Indonesian to our homeland. Even the official “Upin & Ipin” TikTok account commented and welcomed Lilian. Those who haven’t traveled to Indonesia were also curious to know how airports look like in the neighbouring country.
After the airport video, Lilian also posted another video which gained even more views with 1.9 million views. The video is her reviewing her AirAsia flight meal which she said was simply delicious. The TikToker was actually here in Malaysia for the recent Billie Eilish “Happier Than Ever” world tour concert.
