Who are we?

Happy Go KL is a lifestyle and family travel blog. We want to share what we know and love about our current home town and this beautiful region, but also spread good ideas that make everyday life more fun. It is not just an expat blog from KL, but as many of us are expats we look at our home city with wide eyes. It is also a travel blog: we are avid travelers and love to explore new, family-friendly destinations in the region and getaways from Kuala Lumpur.

Behind Happy Go KL there is a group of spirited ladies. Some of us are from Kuala Lumpur, others have been living here for some time. We come from different nationalities, have more tiny humans combined that we can count and a used to call countless countries home before settling down in KL.
