Kelly's Journey to Malaysia

Current Location

Bintulu, Sarawak

Hello there! My name is Kelly, and I am an English Teaching Assistant on a Fulbright Scholarship based in Bintulu, Sarawak. Come along as I continue to explore this beautiful country!


I now understand what being a mermaid feels like! Over the weekend, I was able to get scuba diving certified in Sabah. I saw sea turtles, brilliant fish, and bright coral. 


It is time to say farewell! Thank you for following along on my journey. Let me share with you one more story before I go.

During May, a celebration called Gawai takes place in Sarawak. This time is for Iban people, a group of native Malaysians. It is full of traditions that wish a successful harvest and life for all.
