Selfies A Must at Malaysia's First Selfie Museum

Happy Merdeka Day to my fellow Malaysians! 

In the spirit of our 61st National Day, let's talk about things that Malaysians love. Number 1) Food, Number 2) Selfies and OOTDs, Number 3) Social Media and Number 4) Take pictures of  food and selfies of themselves for social media! 

In the spirit of all things Malaysian love (aka all of the above), Malaysia's very first dessert themed "Selfie Museum" has opened its doors to the public on 31 August 2018 at Fahrenheit 88, right smack in the heart of Kuala Lumpur's shopping and travel destination. The “Selfie Museum” is sponsored by international and local favourite brands; Samsung, Pandora, Benefit Cosmetics, Baskin Robbins, Hotlink Red, TeaLive, llaollao, dUCk Scarves, and Lingham Chili Sauce. There are nine rooms located in the 7,000sqft in size space of Fahrenheit 88's second floor. 

According to the brains behind this concept, Sean Tan, Direction of the "Selfie Museum" - "It’s something new in Malaysia and the inspiration behind this is to allow Malaysians to experience a multi-sensorial journey from sight, touch to taste. We hope to bring Malaysians from all walks of life together to create special moments and memories.” 

Each of these rooms have their own fun and interactive themes and are filled with larger than life dessert themed sculptures for a fun-filled Instagram photo-taking day out while munching on five Malaysian inspired desserts throughout. That's right. You get food - cute, delectable, Instagrammable treats.  So bring your powerbank (trust me, you will need it!), selfie stick/tripod and family and friends. 

Now, let's explore the nine rooms in the "Selfie Museum", shall we?

“Selfie Museum” Rooms:

1. “The Giant Cakes” Room by Pandora

Step in and and feel like Alice in Wonderland. This room displays a variety of colourful giant cake sculptures. Visitors will also get to choose a complimentary cupcake with a local flavor twist; Sirap or Gula Melaka. 

2. “Everything’s Sweet” Room by Benefit Cosmetics

No eyebrow and makeup makeover here. Filled with eye-catching candies and dessert sculptures, this room adds a pop of colour in photos. Visitors will also get to enjoy soft and fluffy corn or lychee marshmallows as they walk through the beautiful “Fluffy Path” to the next room.

3. “Fluffy Path” Room

4. “Ice-Cream World” Room by Baskin Robbins

Sing it with me - Baskin Robbins Thirty- One! Who doesn't love Baskin Robbins and their bi-monthly 31% off offer? At the "Selfie Museum", the room dedicated to the brand resents a delicious life-size Baskin Robbins ice-cream cone and to top it off, visitors will receive a free scoop of Baskin Robbins Cold Brew Crunch or Cotton Candy. Don't ask me which is nice because they both are. 

5. “dUCkies Café” Room by dUCk Scarves
