Firstly i would like to welcome you to Malaysia :D.

Then i would like to know how much preparation you have before you come to Malaysia. and why did your husband let you come to Malaysia alone and finding a house to rent.

What is your budget exactly?

Here in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya the living life style is expensive. I mean everything is expensive the room and others compared to our salary / pay. So don't be surprise if everything is about money.

Are you prepared with this?

And the places that you get here maybe a bit not comfortable then what you are used too. InshaAllah everything is going to fine.

And we don't use electric stove, we use gas. It is very cheap compared to the electricity.

Sorry i accidently pressed the submit button, then got disconnected.

I am worried about you especially when you don't have any planning where to stay. i guess i'm not used to that. lol

Here's the link for rental. But its quite expensive.

I maybe can find you a room to rent but it is only for muslimah. No guys allowed.

also,,we are prepared for it to be different and i prefer gas stoves,,i can afford anywhere from 300 ringget to 450 a month.
as to why we are doing it this way is he had to go to Morocco at the last minute after we had already bought tickets,,and so he changed his ticket to Morocco and then is leaving from there,,and I couldnt change the date of my ticket since it was a special price,,so we are just coping with it as it is,,,
He is very worried about me,,but Ive told him I will cope,,..as long as its only a month,,he flight is coming in at 9 am on the 27th of aug,..
we dont need much space its just the 2 of us,,,and just need a place to sleep and cook and bath, we are newlyweds so we prob wont even notice the surroundings much lol
thankyou for caring and for anyhelp you can give,
Nasima

it's expensive living in KL.... so some owners decided to rent rooms rather than the whole house.....

another thing ... you have to know your roomates...

I hope syilla could find a good muslimah that would able to be your roomate for a month.... inshallah....

So... you're prepared to live in KL?:D

well... it seems that everybody can speak English....

but with some phrases in Malay you can win Malaysians' hearts and giving you discount price.... :okay:

Are you okay with Asian food? Malaysians are famous to eat on 24/7 basis.

in comparison to other cities... KL is not that big (only 1.4 mil people)... but it's situated in Klang Valley with 6,000,000 population.....

befriend with syilla!!!! She could guide you.....

I think both of you and your husband would witness a very colourful and flagful city as we would be celebrating our 50th independence on 31st August...

I never went to see the celebration especially at night. It is full of fitnah.

Eventhough there are alot of muslims here but the pious or the practising ones usually hides themselves....lol. What i meant was, you will be easily surrounded by the non-practising muslims. Listening to music, dancing, love clubbing, wearing sexy clothes and etc. :embarrass

I would say, Kuala Lumpur is not the best place to practise islam.

I've been there twice during my university years... once in Merdeka Square and another another year in KLCC (Petronas Towers).... it's crowded... too crowded that you can't even move... as Malaysia obtained independence exactly at 12:00 AM on 31.08.1957... there would be countdown and fireworks.

* Merdeka Square - the Prime Minister and Cabinet members are there, thus the entertainment is more incline to traditional cultural performance by various ethnics in Malaysia, and when it's approaching 12:00 AM... there would be patriotic songs and stuff... it's more family-oriented theme.

* KLCC - usually organised by private companies.... entertainment by popular artists... in all sort of music genre.... party-goers would love this place.

P/S: As you're religious person, I'll advise you not to go!! I've been twice... and that's all.....no need to go more.... it's too crowded. Furthermore it would be televised live on tv channels...

the only islamic people that would be there are reporters from Harakah (Islamist Party's newspaper)... they'll cover the unIslamicness of the events and show pics of our daring youth in those events.

those party animals are in KLCC, Starhill and Bangsar areas...

Furthermore if you go to the countdown, the events will end at 1.00 - 2.00 AM... and KL is jammed with millions of people.... so you might get home at 5.00 AM. My advise, dont go!!!

But if you're interested in the independent day celebration, you can witness the parades in the morning of 31st August... at least there are no sexy people there.... :okay: I dont know whether they would do it in Putrajaya or KL.

Between 25.08.2007 to 27.08.2007, International Islamic University Malaysia would organise the 23rd Convocation... the university would be opened to the public....there are lots of stalls, food and events plus you can meet students from dozens of countries...

Syilla MUST bring you there... :D
