And so I’ve emailed my dad about coming home. Yet to hear anything from him. I have a the idea that he wants me to continue on staying here because Malaysia isn’t so promising, money-wise. But there are 2 reasons why I need to come home:
- Career: Learning curve is very flat here, I keep on doing the same thing. No one will accept me for an IB job ‘cause I don’t have the suitable degree or experience. They want someone with the same exact job/experience, yet no one is willing to give me that experience.
- Settling down: I’m tired of living alone. Time to grow up. And I want to take this to a whole new level!
This doesn’t mean I won’t be coming back here. Heck this place is a gold-mine. I just want to be well-equipped before coming back here. Right now, no one takes me seriously here even though I have so much to offer. Sigh.
I have set myself for September as a return date to Malaysia. Not sure why I chose that month, but that’s it. I know it’s always subject to change, but right now, I really feel like going home.
Not just because I’m sick of the job here, not because I hate having limited friends here. More because of I want to move forward, with her, now more than ever.
God grace us in your guidance and aid.
Sebuah perkataan yang paling ditakuti
Untuk bangsa kita yang pemalu.
Sekarang kata ini kuajarkan pada anakku;
Kau harus menjadi manusia kurang ajar
Untuk tidak mewarisi malu ayahmu.
Lihat petani-petani yang kurang ajar
Memiliki tanah dengan caranya
Sebelumnya mereka tak punya apa
Kerana ajaran malu dari bangsanya.
Suatu bangsa tidak menjadi besar
Tanpa memiliki sifat kurang ajar
~ Usman Awang
