merdeka eve

and my five year old can sing Negaraku.

i remain an expat, and an outsider — listening to the tune, chiming in whenever he sings the words “raja kita” (those are the easiest for me to remember.)

but my India-born son , who went to his first school here in KL … can draw and colour the malaysian flag, can scream merdeka! and can sing the entire national anthem.

wow.

    See, I have always known that people of Indian ethnicity are very good at picking up new languages. Jai Hind!

    My fiance is currently being considered for a position in Lebuan. We are Australian, and I am trying to get an idea of the place, as it would involve us relocating. Is there any opportunity for work for myself?? Is it easy to become part of the community?? What is there to do to occupy your time whilst your partner is at work??

    I would appreciate any advice you could possibly give me.

    thanks
