I am a mat salleh. Maybe just not your usual type?
I have been living in KL for some time now. Long enough for me to call it home, not long enough for me to pretend I know everything. And I like it that way :)
I shy away from the expat lifestyle. I might be a European, but I don’t drink alcohol, party till the small hours of the night, spend the huge bucks I’ve been making in my expat job. I don’t own a car, nor a condo.
I prefer to go lepak at some mamak store with a teh tarik in one hand and a roti canai cheese in the other.
I try to crack jokes in Bahasa pasar, but the biggest joke is probably how I pronounce it.
I ride a bike.
I don’t have a “real” job.
I spend my nights volunteering, and my days smiling.
I didn’t come to Malaysia for a job. I came for the people.
Drawing of myself by a close friend – Some liberty taken in the way I am pictured though :)
