I am a Malaysian working for a local property advertising company. 2014 is the year that I can afford to travel internationally, even on a limited budget.
I am interested in staying in private homes rather than hotels because of the cost, not going to lie about that.
But as a person who majored in English, I also highly intrigued with people from different cultures. It's amazing how the English is spoken widely, but spoken differently.
Mostly, I'll keep to myself. But I'm hoping the hosts won't mind if I ask a few questions about the neighbourhood.
