  • Description


    I live in a 3 bedroom place on my own. I travel a little more often than I should and would love to have company from time to time. I work full time and some time my work requires me to travel - and I want to utilize the house more.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will have the chance to stay in a close-knit neighborhood with local families. I can also help you plan your travel. When I am home, feel free to travel around South East Asia & use the house as a homebase. I can provide basic cooking necessities like rice, condiments etc tho I won't be buying groceries for you. There's a nice beach, 10 minutes drive from the house where we can hang out & a small hill of 20 minutes hike with a nice view of the island. I will definitely be able to take you to night markets and check out all the local foods! I do have full time job that sometimes get a bit more busy than usual - so I apologize ahead if I can only direct you to travel around instead of taking your around myself!

    I need help sweeping the house (about 650 sq ft) daily, mopping the floor 2 times a week, clean the toilet 2 times a week, clean the louvre windows & 4 fans once in 2 weeks, change bedsheet whenever we have guest. Extra for those with green fingers who can help setup a hydroponic edible garden or grow some greens in the house & able to teach me Spanish/Korean/Japanese. Additional extra if you can help prepare healthy simple meal for dinner :-) (for this, I will provide groceries) Due to my neighborhood, I can only accept female WA-yer.

    Fun note : May is Ramadan, so I'll be fasting.

    Penang itself is a tourist attraction place with excellent food. The bus stop to cities is right behind the house & we are walking distance from the airport. Once awhile, we can go hiking together!
