K-pop idol Jackson Wang recently held his concert at Axiata Arena last Saturday (Dec 17).

During his concert, the 28-year-old singer revealed his plans to stay in Malaysia for another three days because he wanted to explore more of the country.

Wang certainly did make the most of his time here.

In a series of Instagram Stories posted on Tuesday (Dec 20), the Hong Kong-born artiste is seen in several locations around Malaysia.

The first is at Sunway University where Wang held a dance workshop for fans.

"Be free, let loose, give yourself the moment you deserve. It's always for fun, for dance and for love. Always remember that," the singer wrote.

Wang also told fans that he had finally satisfied his food cravings by visiting the local mamak restaurant.

"First time in history ...," the singer wrote, sharing a clip of him trying the roti tissue.

In a separate clip, Wang and his friends can be seen enjoying a plate of tandoori chicken, naan, biryani and a cup of "Milo Dinosaur".

Eagle-eyed fans on Twitter said that the mamak store he visited was located at TTDI.

Meanwhile, local singers Je Pong and Gaston Pong revealed that they bumped into Wang at a hotpot restaurant at IOI City Mall on Monday (Dec 19).

They shared a photo with him on Instagram.

Wang took off to Singapore yesterday (Dec 20) for his next concert, set to take place at Singapore Indoor Stadium on Dec 23.

Summarising his experience in Malaysia, Wang wrote: "Had so many memories here. Various concert experiences, night life experiences, walking around the city.

"Beautiful people. 20 minutes before I leave this amazing place ... finally getting mamak.

"I want to thank you all for the experience, and I hope everyone who came to the show felt the message. Find your magic."
