I am K and my husband is R and this is my blog. I am in my early 40s and R is still in his 30s. We visited Malaysia back in 2007 and thought the country was beautiful; on our trip we learned that a number of foreigners live in Malaysia and it gave us the idea to move here. I am originally from the US and had been living in the Middle East where R is from. In early 2009 we decided that we no longer wanted to live in the Middle East; instead of moving to the US we decided we would move to Malaysia and by October 2009 we were here! It has been a long process buying the house, but we have finally completed the sale.... This blog will document our experiences here in Malaysia... so if you are a person interested in moving to Malaysia, an expat already living in Malaysia, plan on taking a vacation to Malaysia or you just want sneak a peek at what it's like living here, check out the blog regularly or subscribe to The Malaysia Project Feed on the homepage. Please do leave your comments or feel free to email me at the email address on the main page.

Let the adventure begin!!!

  7. Hello!
    Wonderful blog, thanks for sharing your info with us. We moved to Malaysia too, are just in the process of buying a house and thankful for the tips we get here. Btw. we share the same hobby, growing local seeds, my oldest mango/jackfruit/starfruit are almost 2 meters high now and waiting for a permanent place in the new garden. Try some Lychees, they sprout out within 3 days!
    Hope it is ok if I contact you via email the next days.
