Balkoni Hijau is a Personal Finance blog for Malaysian Millennials.

This website is dedicated to Personal Finance and living a balanced, fulfilling life.

Few topics that I blog about:

  • Frugal & optimal lifestyle living
  • Investing without being too technical
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Working on to be debt-free
  • Recommended readings
  • Travel
  • Millenial relationship

I write because it is something that I search but wasn’t available. Or it was available, but it wasn’t packaged in a way that a millennial like me would understand.

So I bet my writings will eventually reach and help other people just like me.

About Me

Hi, I’m Helmi Hasan. I am the founder and writer for the personal finance blog: www.balkonihijau.com.

I am by no means a financial expert nor am I giving out advice.

I, just like many people out there are riddled with debt and bad financial decisions. This blog is to document my journey to dig myself out of this financial hole.

Short History

I grew up in Birmingham, UK.

I went to boarding school in SBPI Gombak, Malaysia (it was somewhat a religious school, of which I am a failed product of that institution).

I studied abroad in University of Wisconsin Madison, USA (had an amazing 4 year experience). It was priceless.

My first few jobs were in Singapore as a Mechanical Design Engineer in the Oil & Gas industry.

Retrenchment ensues over price wars, I started my Airbnb business in Kuala Lumpur.

Now, I am living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
