About Me

I’m Natalie Chai from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Fully Chinese, I’m verbally literate in English, Malay, Korean, Cantonese, Mandarin and a little bit of Hakka. My Gangnam speaking history goes way back to Year 2006 when I signed up for a class in Ampang, one of KL’s few Little Korea. I had a great teacher, it took me about a year before I was finally able to understand an entire variety show on its own.

I love adventures and is always open to meeting new people (more so of those who can make good sandwiches). Anyway, so probably that’s why I found myself on a plane to Seoul to continue my Korean language lessons. I was there for about a year, studying in Yonsei University – which is a magnificent place to be at. By the time I came back, my Korean was already better than my Mandarin.

I found it a shame to not really master the Chinese language since I grew up in an English/Malay school and almost never did pay attention to the minimal Chinese lessons provided. So for 2013, after I pursued my degree – I’m embarking on another journey in Beijing for the Chinese course. Language is very important, but it isn’t what’s most magical.  I see language as a tool.  A tool to bring us many, many wonderful relationships, experiences, obstacles and happiness.

Thenatstory slowly grew to be a place where I’d share photos and experiences of various things and places – and it makes me very happy when people are benefiting from what is published here. It’s not a great blog with HD photos, but if that’s the least I can do to share that pinch of experience – I’d be glad to.

Please email me at thenatstory [at] gmail.com, or refer to the SNS sidebar may you have any inquiries or need to contact me.

Thank You!

    Media student is really something; your blog is much better than my website. Especially those interesting stories and experiences. Compare to mine, I only talk a little about myself at my webpage; Blacky, and it’s probably not as interesting as yours.

    Keep on the great stuffs, never give up on challenging, and take care of Viv…

    Hi, every time I visit your blog, you always had been to some places to have fun. You really know how to enjoy life. Not like me, I only know how to work and doing business.

    You heard of stella & dot? It’s one of my affiliate merchants in my affiliation business, and I believe you love fashion too. You could have a look and see at my site. And I think some of the companies in stella & dot you might heard before. Take care.

    Hi, how are you at overseas? Have a look at this roller coaster, I design it… Just to get a bit attentions from people about my art. Thank you.

    I always wanted to build up my own hotel & theme park; especially roller coasters. I can make it happen and I will, but just don’t know when it comes to reality. Sharingbiz, the globally business not only could help a lot of people, but my dream theme park too.

    This is just to fill up a bit of my thirst and gaining some ideas how to design my theme park later, from Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, the sound volume is a bit low;
