Hello from Kuala Lumper
Hi, my name is Tricia and I'm writing this from my home in Malaysia. This is my first time blogging and I feel both excited and a little bit scared!
I'll start by introducing myself; I'm British but have lived in Malaysia for about 25 years. As you can probably guess, there is a reason for making my home here and that is because my husband, Mustapha is Malaysian. As I'm sure that they will appear in my blog, I should also mention my children, Hannah and Danial. They are both teenagers, so I'll try not to embarrass them too much!
I'm a teacher trainer and work for the British Council in Kuala Lumpur. As a lot of my work involves training teachers and supervising training courses, I get to travel a lot in this region and sometimes further. I've just got back from two weeks in Cairo which was fascinating.
But it's always great to come home and I realise that the older I get the more important it is to me. Of course I still have a home in England but that's my parents' home which is also important to me but in a different way and for different reasons.
I'm really looking forward to hearing from you. Perhaps you can start by telling me about your home and your feelings about it?
