    Hello my name is Shafik and I am currently looking for a Workawayer that can help me at my new guesthouse. Just a bit stories my life, I had been using workaway as a workawayer for many times before whenever i did travel for a long period. And i do realised that this is the best platform that could offer real local experience while also learning new set of skills

    Before you request to do volunteer here, read this so you would if this place is suitable for you

    -the guesthouse is not a party guesthouse, its a good place to retreat and chill
    -my hometown is to be considered to be one the most conservative state in Malaysia
    -alcohol is a bit hard to get here but its still possible though
    -basic english is needed. Basic spanish is extra
    -able to talk with guest casually
    -helping in a condition that will not exceed workaway reguations
    -4-5 day per week of help

    for now, i just need one workaway to help me and the other two part time local employees as this guesthouse is still new. I'll add more volunteering opportunity once the income is more stable
