July 2: Host family!
So after much anticipation, I just found out my host family. I will be living in Kuantan, a city near the east coast of the western Malaysian peninsula. I can’t wait. From what I’ve seen, it will be beautiful!
I also will be living with a big family of four brothers and one sister, which I’m so excited about. I feel like having such a large family will be a great chance to get to know the culture from all different points of view.
