Netizens in Malaysia have expressed surprise and excitement after an American tourist named Malaysia visited her namesake country and recalled her experiences in a TikTok video.

The tourist said she came to visit Malaysia because “it’s my name.”

She was clearly thrilled to be there.

The 35-second video has gone viral on social media with nearly 50,000 views. It is also a part of a series called Pergi Mana Gogogo in which tourists are asked about their travel experiences in Malaysia.
