While most Malaysians detest the country’s humidity, foreigners seem to have nothing but appreciation for our scorching heat.

A TikTok video depicting a woman who netizens believe was casually sunbathing on a median strip in KL went viral yesterday, earning over 47,000 likes barely 24 hours after its publication.

Watch here if the video doesn’t load.

Clad in a blue tank top and black shorts, the blonde woman who appears to be a foreigner is seen placing a garment, presumably a jacket, next to her before proceeding to lay on her back atop the grass.

Based on the video, the weather does indeed look tan-inducing. Nevertheless, netizens are pretty baffled by the rare sight and the woman’s chosen location to catch some rays.

Ironically, some local TikTokers claimed that the clip was recorded somewhere in Pantai Dalam, resulting in an endless stream of comments bantering that she must have confused the area for a beach- though others have noted that it looked more like Jalan Sultan Ismail.

Others were far more concerned whether the act was sanitary or not, noting that stray cats and dogs usually urinate on these grassy regions while strolling through the city.

Then came even more odd assertions from shocked netizens who said that the whole scenario resembled a crime scene at first glance.

Meanwhile, some locals expressed that sunbathing in public was actually common among foreigners, particularly in Europe, as they do not have access to the blazing sun quite as frequently as we do.

Does this mean that KL may be the new hotspot for tourists seeking to sun themselves? Will foreigners be drawn to the city in hopes of obtaining the perfect sun-kissed glow?

Or are actual beaches simply ‘last season’?

There’s a tourism opportunity in there somewhere…
