EXPO in Kuala Lumpur

KL Twin Towers

The month of May started with the two interesting events, right here, next to our apartment in Kuala Lumpur.

The first one was the Malaysia Coffee Fest – a celebration of the wonderful and vibrant coffee culture.  Top baristas, local and international artisan roasters, independent coffee shops, and much more … The innovative tea shops were also well presented at this event.

The latest and greatest machines, gadgets and tools for making that perfect cup of coffee or tea were well presented at the EXPO.  We stopped almost at every booth and tasted every type of coffee that looked interesting.  Surprisingly, we did not see any coffee house or did not taste any coffee from Vietnam.


Actually, we were more impressed with the selection of teas at this EXPO, than with the coffee we’ve tasted.  Overdosed with the caffeine, my husband went home and I moved to the next hall, to visit the Beauty Expo.

The  suppliers, manufacturers, dealers, wholesalers, professionals, and consultants from Malaysia, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China,  Singapore and other countries brought to the show the latest trends and products in the Beauty, Cosmetics & Skincare, Hair & Nail , Spa & Wellness, Health & Nutrition& Weight Management areas.

This short clip is from the Beauty Expo at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center.

There are two noticeable themes that surprised me at the show:

The label “Made in Korea” makes everyone very exited; it is like a stamp of approval of the highest quality cosmetic products.  Although I saw many booths with the cosmetic from France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland, but the level of excitement was almost zero.

The second trend is ampoules, serums and essences.  While I was well familiar with the serums and essences, the ampoules was a new discovery for me.  I was overwhelmed with the huge selection of ampoules at the show. Needless to say, that it was the main product every Asian woman brought home from this Expo.

Note:  Ampoules are from the same family as essences and serums. Actually, they are supercharged serums with the higher concentrations of active ingredients.  Ampoules and serums come in the small bottles with a dropper.
