How to become a Tax Resident of Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur)

Hi all,

I am currently trying to become a tax resident of Malaysia, but I am having a hard time finding any solution to this problem.

I currently staying in Malaysia throughout the year, but am only here on social stamps as I do a lot of travel ( majority S.E.A) for work as I am self employed through companies on contract basis.
These contracts on usually short term contracts from weeks to a couple of month.

Is there any way I can become a tax resident here just by being on a social stamp?

Do I need to stay in the country for a set number of days in order to qualify or do I need to open up a business here in order to become one.

If anyone has any information or experience regarding my situation,
It would be greatly appreciated.
