List of International Schools around Kuala Lumpur

As a service to friends looking for information about International Schools in Kuala Lumpur, here’s the results of several hours of research. I am quite shocked at the number of schools I was able to find.  There are 45 on this list, and growing.  The largest list anywhere else on the web doesn’t even get to 30.  I want to keep this list as complete as possible, so if there are any schools not listed, please let me know by plugging your school in the comments below. I will be sure to add your listing to the main list as well.

The list of International schools in Penang can be found here as well.

Living in Penang on Expats blog

Malaysia expat blogs We’re now listed on the Expats blog website.  Please help promote Living In Penang by going over to Expats blog and leaving a nice comment and a rating.  More ratings and comments will bump us up the page for Malaysia.

Expats blog is a neat place to find other blogs where people describe the thrills and chills of living in a culture that is not their own.  I’ve been following several around Malaysia, and seeing what struggles and insights others have had.

They also have a writing contest that I plan on participating in soon.  So when I do, I’ll post the link to that particular story on Expats blog.  I anticipate I’ll need my readers to help me out again to get voted up the contest ladder.  The first week of the contests is now up: Culture Shock.  I didn’t participate in this one, but boy do I have some stories.

Like when we were in language school, pregnant with the first child, and went straight home, looking no one in the eye, locking the doors, and not surfacing from our seclusion until we had to go back to language school…

Or the time we came brought our first baby home from the hospital to find that there was a wedding in the courtyard next to our house, and the rented speakers were mounted on the exterior of our bedroom wall.  They needed to get the most out of the rental, so they played their music at full volume for 24 hours.  The next day, we waved to our neighbors “Congratulations on the wedding.”  “Congratulations on the baby.”

I could go on… but I won’t.

Thanks in advance for your comment on my listing at Expats blog.

Rest stop sebelah bukit gantang


We’re headed back to Kuala Lumpur to visit the American Embassy again. Now that we have the baby’s Malaysian birth certificate and passport photos. We can make our appointment and apply for a US Passport and a Consular Report of Birth Abroad. We find that we would rather drive the Malaysian highway system than use the air transport that is available to us in Penang.  We break up the long car trip with a stop at a rest stop along the way.  We’ve decided that this particular Rest Stop at Bukit Gantang is probably our favorite.

I know this site is Living in Penang, but my friend Dave has an amazing opportunity for you this September to go with him on a photo tour of Java and Bali, Indonesia.  Just so you know, I have received no money from Dave to post this, I’m doing it because I think my readers can really take advantage of Dave’s low introductory price for this Java Bali Photo Tour.

Orang Utan Island Bukit Merah

The birthday girl pointing out the orangutans in the trees overhead at Orang Utan Island Bukit Merah

We’ve been living in Penang for over a year and we don’t do as many of the touristy things that everyone seems to do.  So over the holidays, we had some friends come and stay with us for a week and that inspired us to go and do some touristy things.  They happened to be here on my middle daughter’s birthday and she was given the opportunity to choose our day’s activity.  She chose to all go to Orang Utan Island in Bukit Merah.  So we packed up the two families into our Avanza and headed off on our adventure.

Driving Malaysian highways

Recently, my family made another road trip out of Penang heading south to Kuala Lumpur and then onward to Singapore.  Driving Malaysian highways can be quite an adventure for a family of five in a Toyota Avanza.  So with a bag full of snacks, RM100 on a Touch n Go card for zippier transition through the toll plazas, a dual screen DVD player for the kids, and a Garmin GPS to guide us, we were on our way.

Taxis and Limos

Airport Taxis

If you are at the airport you can follow the signs to Ground Transportation.  Line up for the desk just after you come out of the customs area, tell them your destination and pay the fee.  Then walk out to the first curb, move down to the right, get in your taxi and go.


are available in front of hotels, along the streets in heavy tourist areas—esp. Batu Feringghi & Georgetown.  Normally they don’t want to use their meters, even though they may have signs on their door saying that you should insist on it.  Penang taxi drivers seem to unanimously feel that using the meter will not get them enough money to make ends meet.  So, before heading to the taxi stand, find out from a reliable source what you should pay to get where you’re going and then be ready to negotiate.  Read this post about what to do about tipping your driver.

Chartered Limos

If you’re going to spend some time here, it probably will pay to find a limo driver who you like & become his regular customer.  Some limo drivers work in companies that have a number of drivers & cars.  It’s good to have a relationship with one of these drivers as they’ll nearly always be able to send their back-up if they can’t come to help you.


Check out this post about a recommended driver.

Singapore Hawker Food: Mutton Soup



My family is currently on a visa run to Singapore.  We are still on tourist visas until our work permits can be processed.  In the meantime, we have to leave the country before we run out of the 90 days allowed on our visa.

We’re staying with friends and we are conserving our funds by not eating out a lot.  But I did get the chance to step out one evening to try out the hawker stalls here in Singapore.

I recently heard that there was some uproar in Penang about some travel magazine rating Singapore’s street food higher than Penang’s.  For that reason I had to try it out.

First, the food court I went to was very crowded.  I arrived just after sundown during Ramadan.  I had a hard time finding a place to sit.  Also I had to relearn the “script“.  At this particular food stall, either there are no drink servers wandering around, or they were busy with other patrons.  Either way, I never saw them.

I was going to try something I like in Penang, so I can compare and contrast.  But then this meal jumped out at me and I had to try it.


I’m a sucker for mutton.  I love it.  And this dish met my expectations.

I like when the broth does not taste like MSG.  It might have had some, but to my taste buds, it tasted like a broth that has been boiling over a fire for hours.  The meat was tender.  The sauces added a nice heat and sweetness to it.

I think it was interesting that the hot sauce is the same as what we get with Chicken Rice in Penang.

All in all, I was impressed with my first foray in Singapore hawker food.  I can’t wait to try something else.
