Malaysia Prepaid SIM Card

While discussing the meaning of Malaysian words with a friend, he attempts to tell you that the "Kuala" in Kuala Lumpur is Malaysian for koala. Kuala Lumpur of course being the original home of koalas.

Something tells you he's full of an unspecified dark substance.

A quick call to your brother the biologist should confirm or deny your suspicion.

For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Malaysia or back home, prepaid SIM cards offer you the benefits of using your own phone at local rates. Simply replace your SIM card with a prepaid Malaysia SIM card and you will be set up to make all those important phone calls and send quick messages across the world, without paying excessively high roaming costs.
