In truth, here in KL with expats a-plenty I don't really have to adjust that much, but it feels lame just to live in a Western enclave and not actually get to know this place or the people.
Work is a pretty good opportunity to get to know some locals and I (along with the rest of the staff) have been invited to Deepavalli dinner at the ED's place this weekend, so that is pretty great.
Being at work has helped me to start understanding the Malaysian accent better, if not Bahasa Malayu it self. People seem to like to insert the sound "lah" into their sentences here. An example might be "You don't need to heat the nasi goreng, lah, it is already hot, lah."
Also, does anyone have any good resources on participatory project evaluation?
