I arrived in KL in August 2022 with my husband on our first expat foray and settled in Bangsar in September. I am original from Co Antrim, Northern Ireland but had been living in Ennis, Co Clare for 30 years before coming to Malaysia. Does that count as an expat foray?My husband works in aviation and the plan is to be here for 2 years plus all going well. We have 4 grown up children and 2 granddaughters. Our oldest and youngest children both live in Ennis as do the grand children. The middle 2 boys are currently living it up in Sydney Australia.

Before coming to Malaysia i enjoyed triathlons and generally could have been found running, cycling or swimming in my spare time. The heat/hills here have played havoc with my training regimes so tend to do more walking and hiking at the moment.

My professional background is accountancy and taxation and I am looking forward to using my skills working with all the ladies in ABWM and to also enjoy the social events throughout the year.
