  • Description

    Description

    I am a nature lover & hope to develop a farm stay retreat center one day. I enjoy meeting & working with people from different background.
    I also believe there's a reason for everyone to meet be it short or long duration. I am running a home stay biz in small scale with just 2 bedrooms.(1 single & 1 double bedroom). Sometimes, I organize events for children & adults with different ideas or approach to make it a fun learning experience.

    I am living with a family member in a 4 bedroom residential unit located in Subang Jaya-suburban area of Kuala Lumpur. (1hr by train & 35min by car to KL). I do not have big garden just a car porch with some potted plants. Most of the time, the house is a quiet & peaceful home office with cozy space to relax.

    Nearest attraction is Sunway Lagoon , Sunway Pyramid Mall & Ayer Hitam forest reserve park. (15min by car) You will need to use Grab car to commute if you are not used to walking under hot sun. However, Grab is not expensive as most of the groceries & food stalls is within 5km.

    Occasionally, it will be full of noise if I have children events or children group tour.

    Note: This is not a hostel & do not have big crowd & you are expected to work independently most of the time. House needs to be kept clean, tidy & with care at all times. This neighbourhood is not a clubbing but residential area.
