What’s the best Malaysian experience for Obama?

PETALING JAYA: If you could have a hand in the travel itinerary of United States President Barack Obama, what truly Malaysian experience would you want him to experience and enjoy?

Should Obama savour nasi lemak, or join our lads in a game of sepak takraw instead?

The 53-year-old President is said to be game to try something new to endear him to Malaysia, besides, of course, speaking in Bahasa Malaysia (Obama spent his early childhood in Indonesia).

Join The Star and The Star Online as we say Selamat Datang (Welcome) to the 44th US President who will arrive on Saturday, making him only the second sitting US president to visit Malaysia.

So, grab the chance to participate in our interactive discussions on The Star Online’s official Facebook page and suggest the best Malaysian offerings for Obama’s two-night visit.

Look out for our blast to the past as we discover how much Malaysia and the United States have changed since the last time a US president set foot on Malaysian soil.

The Star and The Star Online will have informative articles leading up to the presidential visit.
