I'm afraid the only answer to that is no. Because a malay reserved land can only be owned by a bumiputra. Even a non-bumiputra Malaysian can't own it.
Joint ownership of the land with a non-bumi is not allowed.
Unless you have means to convert such land to a non-reserved land (which is a great feat in itself), there is no direct legal means to have ownership or interest in such land.
