International population with authentic Aussie experience

Hi! I’m Jayden from Malaysia and I have been living in Brisbane CBD for almost a year. Vibrant and bustling, the CBD perfectly encapsulates the crossover between the diverse, international population with authentic Aussie experience. I love the finger-tip convenience, from staple names and local eateries of different cuisines and specialty coffee spots to 5 minutes-interval buses.
