Balkoni Hijau is a blog about money & homeownership.
I like to talk about money because I love optimizing my personal finances & got tired of the lame, dry, and impractical content online.
Why is it Called Balkoni Hijau?
Balkoni Hijau is a Malay word that means green balcony, which was the unique selling point of my previous Airbnb business.
During the COVID pandemic, I recycled the website into this blog.

About Helmi Hasan (Founder)
Hi, I am Helmi Hasan, from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
I studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin Madison, USA.
I started my career as a design engineer in the Oil & Gas industry, and I worked in Singapore for about 4 years before getting laid off twice in 2014 during the global oil crisis.
I returned to Malaysia & I started an Airbnb business to help pay the mortgages on the two properties that I ‘invested’ in.
From 2014 to 2018, the Airbnb business was booming, to the point that I was managing 10 studio units catering to tourists in Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur full-time.
Unfortunately, in 2019 due to overwhelming competition and the COVID pandemic, I’ve made the bitter decision to shut down the Airbnb business.
I then got a job as a Digital Marketer at a local tech company while creating content for this blog in my free time.
As of August 2021, this blog is earning USD120 a month.
