Hello, welcome to a piece of Malaysia

A piece of Malaysia features the stories behind local brands, products, services, talents and causes that stand for the support local initiative.

Hopefully through their stories you will be inspired to break your routine. Instead of eating at an international fast food chain, eat at your local mamak stall; instead of buying an international label, support your local brand; instead of watching another Hollywood film, make it a point to watch a local production.

So come on board to listen to their stories.
By supporting our local industries, we are in turn supporting the country we love.
