How to extend stay (over 90 days) for EU citizen? (Kuala Lumpur)

I am an expat moving to KL this summer together with my girlfriend. I have an employment pass and contract, but my girlfriend does not. As she is not my wife, she does not qualify for a long term visa. She is an EU citizen, so she can stay in Malaysia without visa for a period up to 90 days in a year. I have heard that it is actually possible to extend this period by leaving the country and returning, but I cannot seem to find any hard evidence for it.

Do you have such experience or is there any other way to solve this (besides marrying her, I simply do not have enough time left to do that)? I would not like to spend 9 months a year without her :) Thanks.
