Visiting western part of Malaysia means visiting Penang and Georgetown. Visiting Georgetown means dive into the depth of the Malaysian cuisine… How to make your eating budget grow? Being a volunteer!! We decided to do the barter system: accommodation against one of our big talent: ENGLISH;-) In other words, how to become a teacher in 5 minutes and spend couple of amazing days with the local people…. Thank you couchsurfing!
Lost and found, Nick (the co-owner of the school where we’re going to live and teach) with the crew are coming to get us at Firzah`s (read previous post).
Nick: HAVE YOU EATEN?
Us: Yes, we’re full, we’ve eaten an hour ago.
Nick: Ok, we`re going to eat now….
(Emilia, in her mind): Are we in Poland?? You ate, but you will eat anyway. LOVE THIS COUNTRY 😉
So in 5 minutes, we are eating… and in two hours we will eat again… Jeremy and Madleen, our fellow teachers, another French couple that has been travelling for 7 months, say that this is the way it is. We like it that way!
We get to the school.. Suddenly all the people we were with in a car disappear and someone new is showing us our room. The school is located in a villa of Nick`s father who happens to have a title of a Sir and lives in Kuala Lumpur… So we have our room with a bathroom!
The first thing Emilia is thinking about is securing our belongings… So she locks the door (you don’t need a key to lock it but you need to open it)… The problem is that the key doesn`t exist… Let`s try through the window… Nope… After 5 minutes of arrival we need a locksmith!
