This article will thoroughly explain the Employment Pass process that I went through, as well as other Malaysian visa options for expats.
I’ve spoken about the positives, but what about the other side of living in Kuala Lumpur?
Kuala Lumpur has long been a popular destination for savvy expats, but only recently has Malaysia started charting as one of the best places to live in the world. Just last year, in a comprehensive survey by Internations, it jumped 23 places to rank 15th worldwide for providing the best expat experience. From friendly and welcoming locals, to high-quality condos, top-notch travel opportunities and a comfortable lifestyle, KL offers more westernised standards at Asian prices.
As I write this post, I’m still amazed that I’ve been living in Kuala Lumpur for a year and a half already. It’s been hard to keep me in one place for longer than 12 months since I left London in 2011, but so far KL is keeping my expat/posh gypsy feet very firmly on the ground.
Melbourne is an awesome place to live. I moved here for a year in 2016 and it quickly became a home away from home.
I remember the exact moment when the Sailor and I decided to take the plunge and head Down Under. It was my second stint in Prague and about two months into the cold snap.
