Rachel's Journey to Malaysia

Current Location

Bintulu, Sarawak, Malaysia

Join me on my journey to Bintulu, Malaysia! I am serving as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant at SMK Bintulu, a school in a small town in Sarawak, Malaysia.


This past weekend, 15 ETA's from Sarawak and Sabah took part in the Borneo International Marathon in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. The race began at 3:00 a.m. to beat the heat!


The people I've met in Malaysia have shaped my experience as a traveler, teacher, coach and friend, and as I find my place in this community, I know I'm beginning to have an impact, too.

Field Notes

Two of the goofiest girls I know were kind enough to answer a few questions. I am so grateful to have these two in school and I hope you enjoy getting to know them!


In an effort to both explore and cool off a bit, my friends and I decided to organize a long weekend trip to the Cameron Highlands on the Malaysian Peninsula. Sixty degrees never felt so good!
