About me

Let me introduce myself.

I am a Dutch expat, living after my retirement in Malaysia under the MM2H program.

A few times a year I fly back to my native country to meet family and friends. Also to enjoy the Dutch food, like herring, Dutch cheese and strawberries…:-)

But after a few weeks I am happy to come back to Malaysia, the many friends I have here, the climate and of course the food.

I am interested in waterfalls, bird watching, the history of Malaysia and more…:-)

Here are a few of my websites

Waterfalls of Malaysia

I am “addicted” to (Malaysian) waterfalls, probably because we have no waterfalls in my native country…:-)

The website is popular. During the past five years more than 1.5 million visitors from all over the world have visited the website

The last few years I have become less active in updating the site


Birding in Malaysia

Several of my friends are avid birders. I am only an accidental one..:-). But I accepted the challenge to create a website about Malaysian birds. Many Malaysian bird photographers are contributing to the site.

The website is in hibernation at the moment because I have no time to maintain it properly


Stuif’s Adventures

Before I started a blog, I published my trip reports on Multiply, a social networking platform, launched in 2004. When they discontinued this service, I extracted all my data and put them in a kind of personal Multiply site.

I still add content regularly, mainly about longer holidays and generally outside Malaysia
