Rasa Sayang celebrates Malaysia’s 60th birthday!
Giving shoppers and visitors to the mall a well-rounded experience, Rasa Sayang comes in three unique ‘flavours’ which are #makanankita, #sejarahkita and #tempatkita. A Malaysian Food Paradise Under #makanankita, shoppers can sample food sourced from every state in Malaysia, presented in pop-up stalls (known as warungs in Malay) which stay true to the traditional way of serving food. Sarawakian laksa, Kelantan’s nasi kerabu, halal dim sum, chocolate milk ice-cream, and a mouth-watering selection of kuih are just some of the delights that can be enjoyed.

“There is no better way to the heart of a Malaysian than through their stomach. With Rasa Sayang at Quill City Mall KL, we hope to draw more Malaysians together to share their food and stories with each other in the spirit of our Hari Kebangsaan Malaysia,” said Quill Group of Companies Executive Director Dato’ Ar. Michael Ong. Interactive Story Exhibitions Partnering with former journalist Niki Cheong and performing arts platform Kakiseni, Quill City Mall KL presents the #sejarahkita storytelling project which includes videos, photos and texts that collectively give a glimpse into Malaysia’s diverse cultural history.

Curated by Kakiseni, these performances seek to bring art to the masses and are proof that art can take place anywhere.
