Best of Happy Go KL 2016


Another year has whizzed past! We want to thank all our readers – thousands and thousands of KLites log onto the blog every month, something we didn’t even dream of when we started writing less than two years ago! This year we have had to say goodbye to some contributors, but luckily we have met new friends who have joined our small team of volunteer mama bloggers and have managed to publish more posts on great things to see and do in KL, Malaysia and the region.

Thank you for your support and all the messages you’ve sent us this year! We always love to hear from you, so if you have any suggestions or ideas, drop us a line. We wish you a Happy New Year – here are the most read posts of HGKL in 2016:
