Guess what. Talk-show celebrity Martha Stewart will be making a historic visit to Malaysia and Sabah in May. With her celebrity status, Stewart is also well known among Malaysian TV audiences who enjoy following her role as an author, entertainer or television personality.
Martha and a group of high profile visitors will attend the Colors of Malaysia event which features a colorful cultural parade. In Peninsula Malaysia, they would visit Kuala Lumpur and the historical state of Melaka.
In Sabah, the group will be treated with nature, wildlife and cultural delights as they visit the House of Skulls at Monsopiad Cultural Village, Marine Eco Research Centre at Gayana Eco Resort and the Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary in Sandakan. It is hoped that these celebrities, with a huge fan followings will be able to reposition Malaysia particularly Sabah as a more prominent destination for international travelers.By Willie Ki
