Sailing School and Sailing Lessons in Kuala Lumpur.

At last you no longer have to go all the way to Langkawi to learn how to sail. Kuala Lumpur now has it's own sailing school.
If you want to "test the waters", you can try a one day introduction lesson to see what it is all about.

Foreigners buying property in Malaysia: Rules, regulations, fees and taxes

 You may have heard that as of January 2014 the minimum property purchase price is RM 1,000 000
for all foreigners. Capital gains tax has also been raised. This is naturally a huge shock and increase for foreigners but also a welcome ruling for local Malaysians. The hope is that this will result in homes being more affordable for locals.

For more comprehensive information please have a look at the site below.
Malaysian Property Regulations

Best places to buy property in KL

If you are a foreigner looking to buy property or you are currently in the process, your best bet, is to use a reputable lawyer who will help you navigate through the current changes.

Exceptions/ exemptions for certain foreigners:

I have discovered that there are some exceptions to the new RM 1,000 000 purchasing price rule.
Please have a look at the official EPU site to see if you qualify for one of these exceptions.
