Hi folks!

So I stumbled on this forum searching for a good long term car lease deal here in KL. I moved here just about a little more than half a year ago with my family. We decided to live in the city so we don't have to worry much about logistics and all that. Having spent some time in the city now, and the need for finding a good (and easy on the pocket) school for our 2 boys, we are looking for options maybe a little outside the city.

Looking forward to learning more about KL.

All the best,

Hello Everyone

My name is Nitin and we are moving to KL with family in March beginning. Planning to live somewhere close to G-tower.
