Hey, I am Ronnie. I have been living in few cities in Malaysia since my childhood but I am currently settle down in Penang. I am attracted by the nice people, unique culture, and of course I cannot resist the nice food in penang.

My life goal is to travel around the world and my biggest interest is to hunt for the nice local food. I have visited several countries and I believe there are uniqueness in each country. However, my heart is always stick with Penang.

I always priorities cleanliness, comfortable, great service, easy communication and trust-able host when I travel. I believe most of us are looking for the same factors as well. I often got wonderful experience from other hosts during my travel and I truly appreciate that. Therefore, my hosting style would be more towards creating values to my guests and make sure they are having a wonderful stay as well.

Lastly, thank you for viewing my profile and I hope to talk to you soon.

The carpark comments from the rest is real, hahaha....Anyway, it doesn't impact us because we usually go out and come back once in a day. The location is strategic where you can either walk to nearest tourist hot spots or Grab for foods.
