Hi, My name is Roger and I’m going to move to Malaysia together with my family mid of next year for a time period of two years. I will work for a german company in Sendayan (Negeri Sembilan). I know there are a couple of international Kindergarten in KL resp.close to KL. Nevertheless it would be great to have an international kindergarten close to my company. Does anybody has an idea or maybe has been in the same situation. I’ve read that there is an international kindergarten in Seremban 2 and a school called UCSI inPort Dickson!?? Maybe there are also some german kindergarten, but international would also be fine. Furthermore it would be great for my wife if she would have some possibilities to do all day long. As I understood there is no real international community in Seremban or port Dickson. Please correct me if I am wrong. Some recommendations?? Does anyone have some experiences regarding my problem ……???? I really appreciate your support … Regards

My Husband got an offer in Kuala Lumpur (IT job) where I will be holding a dependent Visa. 1.Can anyone please suggest me whether its possible to get a work permit for me to search and get a job in Malaysia? 2. If Yes, then do I need to apply for WP visa or that dependent visa will work? 3. How much possibility are there to get job for a foreigner in Malaysia. 4. Am I taking a wrong decision by resigning and planning to move Malaysia in hope to get a job there definitely? Looking forward quick response and guidance please suggest ASAP. Regards! Sni

@ kebinger, Thanks for your comment! specially for the last line completely agree with you. I have also started trying from my end for Malaysia to get a job prior to the departure and still dint get a single call. Lets hope for the best and move on!
kebinger replied most recently with:
Sorry, it seems I was not clear enough. To be employed under “Dependent Pass” the employer has to apply for the position first through Immigration. He needs a supportive letter from one of the agencies. It is easier for him to get a supportive letter for a “dependent”. To be on the save side I would look for a job prior to the departure through some of the head-hunters or place and ad/check vacancies at jobstreet or similar online pages. I will not interfere in your family decisions and no one can guaranty to get a job . My saying is: “where there is a will there is a way”

Roger001 initially posted:
Hi, currently I received an offer to work for two years in the area of Seremban. Due to the fact that I have two children (3 years; 2month) the decision is not easy for me! Plan would be to move for two years to Malaysia with my family. Is there anybody who can give me some help / information regarding: 1) how is Seremban 2) international community available? We are from Germany! 3) Would it be better to move close to KL and I would travel each day to Seremban 4) what about Kindergarten 5) experiences of other expats who moved together with their family to Malaysia There are actually thousand questions and I hope someone shares his/her experiences with me. For me most important would be that my family enjoys this movement. I will be working the whole day and they need to have the possibility to do something! Mans thanks in advance Roger
broadand replied most recently with:
You are welcome. Don't discount Seremban entirely, if you can find a clean and decent apartment or a house in a secure environment at a reasonable price (around RM2k per month), then you could look at joining the Sungai Ujong Club which has a swimming pool, bar and etc. But there is no international standard kindergarten in Seremban to the best of my knowledge. There are kindergartens which claim to be of international standard, but I can assure you that they are not.The same applies to Port Dickson, in PD there is the old Yacht Club which has basically the same facilities as the Sungai Ujong Club, but you won't find an international standard kindergarten in a sleepy little town like PD. Having said that, PD is pretty much traffic free and is only 30 minutes drive from Seremban. You may find a suitable kindergarten in KL but commuting is a problem due to the traffic. If you get on the road before 6.30am, you can reach Seremban in an hour from most parts of KL. But travelling back to KL, you will find huge traffic jams and it may take 2 hours plus to travel back. Hope this helps.
Roger001 replied most recently with:
Many thanks for your response. I really appreciate that! What do you think about Port Dickson? Or is there any other city between Seremban and KL which is more international? We defenitely need to have an international Kindergarten next to the place wie live, Many thanks in advance Roger

Expat Report Review of Malacca Expatriate School (MES) in Malacca, Malaysia by broadand was published
Review-of-Malacca Expatriate School (MES)
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
Facilities are very basic. The school styles itself as 'international' and supposedly follows the British curriculum but all of the teachers are local. The secondary 'principal' is a Scot's woman from the UK whose qualifications are questionable and whose attitude is both arrogant and overly authoritarian. Physical education is part of the curriculum but there is no gymnasium and PE consists of the students either running around or playing games in the tarmac car park in temperatures exceeding 30 degrees C, with absolutely no protection from the sun. EC activities are a joke, I mean sewing and needle classes for 13 & 14 year olds, come on! (Continue)

travellerguy replied to the thread Help! Critical Visa Issue.. on the Malaysia forum:
travellerguy initially posted:
My girlfriend (Vietnamese) has been staying in Malaysia now for about 3 months. We found a broker who gave her 2 visa extensions (30 days each) so far. The broker called us a few days ago and asked for 3 months advance payment for our next VISA extensions. We then told him that we will leave the country soon and don't need any more extensions. The broker said he spoke with the immigration guy who is issuing my gf's visa and we have to pay the 3 months or we will have problems at the every border. They threatened us and are now forcing us to pay 3 more months. What should we do? Based on my girlfriends passport, we have two visa extensions and we can still stay in Malaysia until the beginning of December. Thanks in advance for you advice!
travellerguy replied most recently with:
Thanks for your advise. We will do that as soon as possible.

Some common sense. If you are right, you are right. Could be some impostors up to extort money. Contact your embassy, who knows they might have handle a similar case elsewhere and can give you legal advise. regards .
