Forget GST, 13 Exciting Shopping Malls Are Opening In The Klang Valley Soon!

It is a well-known fact that Malaysians love to shop. In fact in a list made in 2012 by (and elaborated further by Malaysian Digest – read here), three shopping malls from our country were listed in the top 10 largest shopping malls in the world.
