My colleague's challenges, pleasure of living and studying in MALAYSIA (no.1)

Athénaïs Delacour

she hails from Paris, the city of romance..she is a French student who possesses a smile bright as the Malaysian Sun! been here for almost 11 months now. She's taking Bachelor of Arts.

What was the first thing that crossed your mind the moment you walked out thru the doors of the airport??
The climate! It made my skin sticky and the smell was odd. But otherwise I found the whole cultural experience to be fascinating-everything was just great.

Memorable things so far?
The people. I think they are quite memorable in their own right, very open minded too, asking a lot of questions. The places of worships like the mosques & the churches...all beautiful! The only thing I don't like is the way the men stare at me when I'm walking past. It makes me feel uncomfortable.

Any funny stories?
We were in Malacca with some friends and we got attacked by monkeys. We were really scared at first so we started running and screaming like a bunch of crazy people. Then we started laughing at ourselves. It was really funny!

What are the differences from your home country in France?
Oh France is very different from Malaysia-the weather is not humid, and the people are very expressive while here they are quiet. I miss my family, and my bf but I'm happy here :)

i wanted to discover Malaysia and Asia in general and it was a good decision and I don't regret it one bit.

Any interests?
I do taekwando and I'm not much a shopper. Clubbing in Malaysia is very good but alcohol is very expensive and not as good as France.

Last thoughts bout Malaysia?
I love Malaysia and truly treasure my experiences here.

and I really agree with her!! Malaysian men love to drop a stare whenever they see girls
