Thanks Tourism Malaysia once again for inviting me to KL & Penang!
This time visit to KL was in conjunction with the Malaysia International Shoe Festival 2013.
I have been to KL several time and always enjoy eating & shopping, but have never attend their Shoe Festival before. So this is going to be my 1st time attending the event!
As for Penang, it was my 1st time being there and the experience was great!
I will be sharing more on Penang on my next blog post.
So for this post I will concentrate more on my stay at KL and also the Shoe Festival.

Amori- One of the booth at the MISF 2013.
In the Italian dictionary, the word, just pronouncing it profoundly translates a meaning of deep affection, love and... a little bit of lust. And then there’s “Amori”. More directly, a combination of “Amore” and “I”, bringing together the meaning, I, LOVE! ♥
The women whose crazy about her pair of Amori is that girl who loves walking in style, she’s fresh and definitely SEXY. So put on those sky-high stilettos, comfy platforms, soft leather flats and LOVE!
