Allya's Journey to Malaysia

Current Location

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Since January, I have been living in Kuala Krau, Pahang, Malaysia while working as an English teacher. The school I work in is a secondary school, with students ages 12-17. 


This weekend I went to my friend Nicole's school to volunteer at an event she hosted. Afterward, I took a bus to Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur. Come along with me!


While I have several more months left in Malaysia, this is the end of the road for us. The first five months of my adventure here have come with many lessons, and I loved sharing it all with you!

Field Notes

Technology is hard to come by in rural Malaysia, which can make life for teachers very difficult.


This weekend I went to the Perhentian Islands off the west coast of Malaysia to get SCUBA-certified. I can now dive up to 60 feet underwater!
