About Us

myJejak – not an actual word as it is. However, jejak means track / trail in Malay. So basically to us it means ‘my trail’ or in this case… ‘our trail’.

myJejak charts the travels of two semi-intrepid KL-ites (*a term for urbanites who live in Kuala Lumpur):

  • Sharm – who is afraid of most flying things
  • Hani – who is really afraid of dogs

We were planning our travels over dinner one day and discussing all the countries we had been to, what we had seen and where else we would like to go to… and then it hit us – we had hardly travelled around Malaysia!

Sure, we had gone to places like Langkawi and Penang and our parents’ hometowns (Taiping, Dungun, Ulu Kinta) but we have not actually been a tourist in our own country, Malaysia.

Malaysia – with its cities, heritage towns, rainforests, mangrove swamps, kampungs, beaches. Through MyJejak we hope to travel to the many places which Malaysia has to offer and to see and experience Malaysia.

Sharm’s first travels were through the books she has loved reading since she was yea high (think: 2 feet). Since then, she has braved her motion sickness and managed to convince herself to get onto trains / planes / boats (note: most of the time some medication is involved). She spent her formative university years watching The West Wing and Gilmore Girls ( seriously, how great is ‘Oy with the poodles already.’).

Time had always been the excuse for Hani not to travel but in the recent years it has now become one of her top priorities. As a person, Hani has a built in loudspeaker installed in her small framed body. She believes that looking at trees reduces stress, hence she shows her gratitude to mother nature by not eating them (veges are a no no on her plate).

I always wonder why birds stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth. Then I ask myself the same question.

Lets colloborate

BeginningĀ 2017, we are introducing new categories to our site in our effort to create new friendships & expand our travelling community.

Contributors – We are looking for contributors on anything local (Malaysian travels, stay, food, cultures, activities etc). You could be a local or someone who has traveled to Malaysia before. Do share your experiences on our site. And don’t limit your creativity – submit a write up, sketch, video, anything at all!

Being Malaysian – Malaysia is home to a diverse ethnic group & through this category we hopeĀ to introduce our fellow Malaysians.

Lokals Abroad – No one knows a place well like a lokal (that’s local spelled in Malay). Get featured on our blog site on what’s interesting at where you’re from.

All credits will be given to you. We are just attempting to create a free, content filled blog site for the travelling community. So lets share!

If interested for any of the above, please get in touch with us by dropping an email to [email protected]
