I have lived in HCMC but have never been to Malaysia.
I like HCMC, to a point.
I am applying for jobs in both HCMC and KL. I wondered if people could give me their view and talk about their experiences.
Of course, it is subjective to some extent but I would like to hear from people on this forum.
chalk and cheese isn't it?
"vast and black. the thing that was poised, like a crow over the moon. round and smooth. cannon balls. things that have fallen from the sky to this earth. our slippery brains. things like cannon balls have fallen, in storms, upon this earth. like cannon balls are things that, in storms, have fallen to this earth. showers of blood. showers of blood. showers of blood. " c.f.
I lived in KL, admittedly years ago, but my impression was that it was a very easy place to live. If English is your only language, you'll find it easy as most can use it at least at a rudimentary level. Food was cheap and tasty, but booze pricey. Rents were also more than a bit steep in relation to salary. If you are a suburban homebody it may be your sort of place. If you like an edgy place with a great deal of nightlife, KL probably will likely disappoint you.

Así pues, aquí estamos.
I vote for HCMC, not the worst place to hang out. Been there done that myself and still stop in to do some short jobs from time to time.
A bit off the subject, what is the teaching scene like now in HCMC? Are a lot of schools hiring?
^ haven't seen you for a while mate. hope you're well!
Does anyone else think KL in lowercase looks like Id? kl = Id
I thought this thread was about:
"While Jim is milking the Russian Boar, I'm in the shade of a Baobab tree being served a cool drink by a beautiful young indigenous girl. "

Traveler2I moved from there 2 years ago but have visited twice. I keep in touch with a few long-termers in Saigon.Almost everyone agrees that enrollments are down for General English, and hours are down as well. Part of the reason (people think) is that the economic downturn in the West and in particular the US, has caused too many people to come to teach English.Although they don't stay long and leave, there is always another wave coming to do EFL as Uni grads are unemployed, seeking some adventure, and trying EFL out.bit off the subject, what is the teaching scene like now in HCMC?
