You'll notice after that first stage, you need to come back to earth.
This could be the hardest stage of culture shock for you (unless you've been here)! We don't want to scare you but some people never get past it.
You will start to have daily frustrations, and it will become a hurdle. This might cause you to be drawn to those who felt the same way in their expatriate life so that you could share your problems with, and those ‘tourist stuff’ doesn't seem to be interesting to you anymore.
But do not worry, we believe that you will get through this stage. Hang out with positive people and keep yourself occupied. Oh, and try to learn some Bahasa Malaysia! This stage usually lasts for 2 – 3 months, but can be much longer, shorter, or missed out altogether depending on your attitude to life.
