🌅 Good morning!

Ever wondered what a day in the life of a foreigner in Malaysia looks like? Here’s a sneak peek into my daily routine:

☕ Morning rituals:
Wake up to the sound of the azan (Muslim call to prayer), followed by a quick swim, bringing my son to daycare, and then it’s time to enjoy a delicious breakfast. Nasi lemak or roti canai, anyone?

🚉 Commute to work:
Malaysia traffic is crazy at peak times, so I try to evade it. Luckily, I work from home!

👨‍💻 Work-life balance:
Time moves slower in Malaysia. Everything is more relaxed. What is not finished today can also be done tomorrow. Have quick Teh Tarik breaks. Of course, every customer meeting integrates food.

🕌 Culture and religion:
From Buddhist temples to Hindu shrines and Islamic mosques, Malaysians find solace and spiritual nourishment in their diverse religious practices.

🍽️ Foodie paradise:
Getting my son from daycare before going to dinner. Malaysia is known for its mouthwatering cuisine. Who can resist the temptation of char kway teow or nasi goreng for dinner?

🌆 Evening unwind:
After a long day, cherish evenings with family and friends. A stroll in the park or a visit to the pasar malam (night market) makes for the perfect end to a busy day.

🛌 Sweet dreams:
As the night falls, unwind and recharge for another exciting day ahead. Good night, Malaysia 🌙
