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 :)

    • Is it? I wouldn’t know, I don’t really hang around with foreigners :)
      Or you could say, I’m not hanging around with foreigners that much because it’s more difficult to meet them at night outside of a bar ;)
