About WeirdKaya

WeirdKaya is an independent news and media site founded by Malaysians that reports daily on updates, insights and viral news from Malaysia and around the world.

Our Journey

Started on 11 October 2020, WeirdKaya quickly gained traffic and attention, garnering impressive numbers on its website and several major platforms like Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. Since its starting quarter, WeirdKaya has striven to become one of Malaysia’s fastest-growing media brands, reaching out to hundreds of millions of potential audiences in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines.

WeirdKaya aims to become the news source everybody wishes to have on their feed. We provide timely and trending news, weird and peculiar facts, and all sorts of content you never knew you needed, all while upholding quality standards.

In 2021, we will be branching out into a broader range of video content, by informing our viewers on the hottest food trends, while also bringing attention to all the good food around them. In addition to that, one of our planned series will also dive into the story behind the hawkers that make Malaysian food so remarkable to the world.

What I love: food, YouTube, movie marathon & imitate anyone/anything that’s funny to me. I don’t really have a hobby but if I do it’ll turn into an autobiography book.🙃 I’m basically all over the place, I’m everywhere. 🤣
