Getting to know David Jr from Malaysia Asia 

Welcome to my travel site Malaysia Asia. I am an avid traveler and enjoy exploring new places for all sorts of positive values. From photographing to learning about the place, you can fine me sharing my travel experiences with my readers here. You should also know that Malaysia Asia is not a travel blog but more of a travel site with information about all things Malaysia and Asia.

I have been living in the lovely city of Petaling Jaya in the state of Selangor in Malaysia for almost all of my life though I was born in Taiping in the Perak state, my family moved to Petaling Jaya in 1971, therefore I would easily consider myself a city person with city ethics but with a passion for the outdoors.

I come from a film background over the last 20 years and now I focus mainly on traveling, social media marketing and management, and Malaysia Asia. On the lighter side - Life is good if you ask me as it is always full of unexpected situations when you choose to live this kind of life. How we look and decipher them is another ball game all together.

If you should know, I started traveling the minute I finished school back in 1987. A 26 hour Bangkok trip by train opened up my eyes and I have never stopped since. I have experienced working and living in Tokyo, Japan at a ripe age of 19 years old and partied at the Northern Mariana Islands of Saipan and Guam (in the Pacific Ocean) when I was 20 years old.

The early years took me to various places around the world starting with Australia's Brisbane and Gold Coast and all the way to Perth in the 90's. From there on, I just kept going. I must have visited the United Kingdom 6 times and Los Angeles in the United States about 5 times in the nineties as well. A month long trip to Northern Europe to Finland, Sweden and Amsterdam taught me about life in the colder countries as I had never experienced this coming from a tropical country.

One of the best places I have visited in all my travels have got to be South Africa's Cape Town and going right down to the Cape Of Good Hope. From there, I flew over to Buenos Aires, Argentina to experience the South American culture and visiting Evita Peron's Tombstone to name a few of the activities I did there.

Of lately in the last 5 years, I have been focusing on local travels and around the South East Asia region and here is where you see most of my current work on Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Macau, Hong Kong and my personal favorite, the main Island of Borneo, namely Sabah and Sarawak. I also indulge in Scuba Diving and Bird Watching as a personal hobby of mine, especially when I travel for work and have that extra time.

I am pretty much active on Social Media therefore you can reach me on the various platforms listed below:
My company (MyAsia Services) focuses on a lot of Social Media Management, Marketing and Campaigning for the travel and tourism industry. I work closely with Tourism Boards, Hotels & Resorts and even Travel Companies by assisting them in getting more out of Social Media platforms and Search Engine Optimization or SEO for tourism. Contact me if you need to learn more about this.

So with this, I hope you enjoy reading my travel blog and if you need to ask me anything, please do email me here - juniorhogan [at] gmail [dot] com or simply use the Contact me form. You can also find out more about Malaysia Asia on Google +.
