profilepicAnyong! My name is Jessica Chae and I am Malaysianised Korean that is now living in Sydney. I have called Malaysia home for 17 years. I used to study PhD in Biomedical Science focusing on cancer research. I was born in Gangnam, Seoul and I created this blog to jot down my memories and adventures in this beautiful country of opportunities.

I love to eat nasi lemak and durian, shop at pasar malams with friends, watch football in the local kopitiams and meet new people. I speak a bit of Malay but have a lot of room for improvement.

I want to build businesses and create new opportunities by meeting new people. Please follow my blog.

Terima Kasih. 🙂

    Dear Jessica,
    I came across your blog by chance while searching for Korean who are living in Malaysia.
    We are actually looking for a Korean personnel for quite some time but to no avail. Thus just wondering if you have any advice where we should look for one / advertise. Thank you so much

    I was searching information about Malaysia and I found your blog! 🙂
    Very nice blog by the way.
    I’m Korean too, and I saw on your Linkedin profile that you work for The Face Shop!
    I’m finishing my MBA in Marketing and cosmetics (In France) and I was wondering if may be you can give some advices about Malaysia and cosmetic opportunities.

    I’m looking forward to speak to you.

    Take Care,
