Sungai Petani, Kedah, Malaysia

Looking for a passionate, enthusiastic and fun loving guide to the Heritage city of Georgetown Penang?

Welcome to my world then. . . .

I am passionate about meeting peoples from all over the world, sharing with them my passions in food, my cultures, traveling, exploring something new, adventurous and yet different.

My motto in life: carpe diem ( seize the day) and Hakuna Matata ( in Swahili it meant - no worries, be happy ). For I believe that life is meant to be lived to its fullest potential as we are passing by this life only once. I have an easy going personality, people says.

Prior to making guiding as a full-time vocation, my life was dedicated to the MNC ( multinational company ) environment for 29 years. And the time is ripe for the major change to what I really love doing. . .

I have been guiding for the last 10 years but only making it full time in the last 2 years. Am a licensed guide in Malaysia ( Tour guide license 14410 ) accredited by Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture, Msia. An accredited Muslim Halal guide and a member of Penang Tourist Guide Association.

So, if you think that I suited the profiles you are looking for in a guide, drop me a line and we can take it from there to get you a memorable holiday. See ya soon. . . .

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a great day with her. She picked us up at our hotel and started telling us right away about the history of George Town. We could ask her all kind of questions about the history but also our upcoming plans for this trip - which was super helpfull. After telling her that we are also intertested in some local food we stopped at some street food vendors & could give it a try. Would book a local guide next time again in case we are visiting a new place to make holidays. Thanks for a great day!
