In 2013, YES! Magazine flew to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to do a story on actress Jackie Forster. Jackie welcomed the team into her home, a spacious unit with a fantastic view of Kuala Lumpur’s skyline that she shares with her husband Michael and their two kids, Jared and Caleigh. At that time, the family has been living in Malaysia for almost a year, after staying in Singapore for three-and-a-half years. Moving from one country to another is not new to the brood given Michael’s job in a multinational company. “Ang work ng expat [expatriate] usually would be a three-year contract each time. If within three years, they want to relocate you,” Jackie shares.

The big windows in the unit let in plenty of natural light that adds to the airy feel of the space. Most of the pieces were shipped from their house in Singapore and only a few items were bought in Malaysia. Since the unit is big, Caleigh and Jared have their own rooms, plus there’s also a well-maximized balcony that’s been transformed into play and lounge areas.
