Migrating to Australia Good Meh???

Well, the hubster and I got back from our Melbourne vacation last week and on the day we arrived, I received an email from Ken - a stranger but a fellow Malaysian, who migrated to Australia some 10 years ago.

A homely person that I am, I love supporting Malaysian talents. You see the photographer who captured our anniversary moments while we were in Melbourne is a fellow Malaysian. And I felt honoured by the humble request from this fellow Malaysian to share a book that he had co-written with his brother, Michael.

Authors - Ken Soong and Michael Soon

The book title itself caught my attention since we've heard so much about how it's greener on the other side (or down under). So if you're dwelling with the idea of migrating to Australia, you ought to read the book "Migrating to Australia Good Meh???".

The book - Migrating to Australia Good Meh???

The book is published by Gerak Budaya and retailing at RM25 in MPH, Kinokuniya, Popular, Times Book Stores and other major bookstores across Malaysia and Singapore.

But from now until 30 April 2014, the authors are giving away free copies of their book to anyone who donates RM10 to any of the charities in the list provided, simply to promote some act of kindness among our community.

Ken was kind enough to attached a copy for my review and while my mind was still fresh with images and memories of beautiful Melbourne, I finished reading the book within one afternoon. It contains real stories of migrants from Malaysia and other countries as well, and you'll read how they succeed in their studies, careers and businesses in their new "home country".

In short, you can learn the hard way by thriving blindly. But I'd recommend you to read this book and learn from real life trial and errors that will aid in your informed decision-making and smooth transition to fit into your adopted "home country".

Feel free to get in touch with Ken or Michael on their Facebook Page, should you have questions or need further advice from them. They are very friendly Malaysians who will be more than happy to help clear some of your queries and doubts.

Happy giving to charity and remember to claim for a copy of "Migrating to Australia Good Meh???" from the authors.
