Not for my friends in the British Foreign Service who aren't able to respond.

Re: Advice from Malaysian Embassy at odds with that seen elsewhere

It isn't a spelling mistake. It's ignorance of the difference between the words, "poor" and "pour" from someone who denigrates teachers of English as a Second Language.

Re: Advice from Malaysian Embassy at odds with that seen elsewhere

You're like me then, some typos etc but then I'm not knocking anyone or any institutions.

This guy Nermodot rubbished ESL teachers, so it's fair game to look for a decent level of spelling in his...

Double standards, Sue.

Nermodot uses a bit of unsupported sarky about the British Foreign Service and you leave it. I do the same, without names, and you remove it.

Re: Advice from Malaysian Embassy at odds with that seen elsewhere

Gratuitously running down the British Embassy is crass.

And Malaysia doesn't have a British Embassy. It's a High Commission.

Thicko.

Re: New boy with sights on Penang

A friend of mine who does the Satun route tells me it's 90 days. Last had a chat about 5 months ago but maybe someone has something later.

Re: Penang what is the reality?

Julian,

You could try teaching at one of the "International" schools as standards are on the low side so a newbie degree holder would probably be a plus, and they really take anyone who can nearly...

Re: Have you had enough of Lion Dances yet?

Don't you find them a bit lethargic. Surely a bit more activity and an increase in the general volume would go down much better. It's all too sedate for me.

I didn't know that lions ate cabbage.

After all there's no snow and with 30 degree ++ temps it's just another day in the Tropics.

Re: MM2H so expensive

Re: MM2H so expensive

It isn't so expensive when you think about it. Let's face it, as a single person you'll get a 10-year renewal visa and you have to deposit RM150,000 in a FD. You collect the interest tax-free, and if...
