List of famous Malaysians with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.

Malaysia, a melting pot of diverse cultures, and a hotspot of some of Asia’s greatest attractions (think prehistoric rainforests, world’s tallest twin towers – the Petronas, and Batu Caves!), is also the home to some exceptionally successful people. That is right! It is truly amazing how this multicultural haven, oscillating between its Oriental culture and pockets of diverse other religions, race and background, has managed to carve a niche for itself in the global map. Tourism and its attractions aside, this Southeast Asian country is also the address to some popular names in the world. Don’t believe us? Bet, you did not know that the maker of world famous shoes, Jimmy Choo was a Malaysian? Or that brand ambassador of L’Oreal and Sony, the famous supermodel Amber Chia is a Malaysian? Join us as we delve into the lives of some world famous Malaysians in their biographies and trail their timeline, trivia and facts here.
