  1. Not just street food is nice. The high end food such as those in fancy restaurants dotting KL are sophisticated and delicious. The hotel buffets are legendary, if you can afford them.

  2. If you miss MALAYSIA..
    So do us as Malaysian..
    Please come again..

    Do remember this basic malay language..
    Welcome = Selamat Datang
    Good Morning =Selamat Pagi
    Thank You = Terima Kasih

  3. Amanda muse.. If u miss everything's about Malaysia, Malaysia was open for you forever… I hopes you will visit all places in malaysia.. From Perlis to Sabah n Sarawak Borneo..

  4. 4.5 years is a long experience living in Malaysia. U have two wonderful children n many wonderful moments down in memory lane. True enough, different country, people n multi culture do pose a unique challenge n u did it in flying colors.

  5. First time watching your video, not sure how it popped up on my ipad. We are 3 years out on planning to retired in Penang, we want to send our daughter to Dalat International school. We have been an expat for 19 years, still going at it because of our job but I am ready to settle down in Penang. We can’t wait to get there, it seems Penang is such a beautiful place, thanks for sharing with us your experiences. Great memories!

  9. Hi Amanda, I’ve just found your channel and found your experience pretty much the same as mine. I lived in KL (Ara Damansara) for five years and loved the experience. I miss it very much after a year away and now live in Australia. I cannot agree with your comments on Tesco. The Tesco near my house was rubbish and a few other supermarkets nearby were much better. Anyway keep up the good work terima kashi

  10. You know what.. I really loved you video.. especially about your experience living in my country πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ. Hope you can visit Malaysia sometime.. you are always welcome here..

  11. Do you cook while you were in πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ Amanda? Did you cooked Malaysian malay, chinese or indian food while you were here.. did you still remember how to cook them now?

  12. I hope that one day you and your family will be able to return to Malaysia, and feel that familiar excitement of returning 'home'. Much love, from KL
