Working holidays

We, Malaysian live in typical way. We go to school, aim to be in the best IPTA/IPTS and find the best work that we could. We may don’t know what our real interest is and just take the course that is said to have a ‘hot’ job.

As we grew older, we compare ourselves with other people – what kind of work we do-what car do we have- how many figures for our salary-etc. Maybe we compare all that because that’s the only tools we have to measure achievement. As we don’t know what achievement really mean to us.

As the time goes by, we feel tired. Tired for work.Tired to give a try. Tired to think what really matters to us. And suddenly, we stop, take a deep breath and confuse with path shall we go. Continue at the same direction or follow other direction.

Travelling is always be my passion. A part of it to see the colour of the world..part of it just to get out from the box.

While doing the working holidays, I met many travellers. Impress with all those young travellers girl who travel alone. At the young age they know what they want. Have a short break by travelling before pursue their studies. Use the time to think what they want. Grab the experiences while they are still young. And I’m compare myself at the age 17 with those girls. How much I envy them.

At first, I think our culture is just different with them. Our religion too. But, put aside those reason-there are the reason why we stuck and keep doing the same thing. We need to be exposed to do something that we are not used to do. We need to be brave and not just education-work oriented.

The thing is..time could not stop us. But it can be a limit for us on what we want to do.

It’s never too late to do anything..but it could be late to do everything.

But, as long as we know what we want and we do it.
It will be our achievement.

Really hope in future there are more and more young people doing this.
Rather than just follow the same waves as other people had.

The right word is to say that..
Everyone should know what they want
N not afraid to take risks to try something

Last but not least,enjoy this song-Hand in my pocket (Alanis Mrissete)

I'm broke but I'm happy
I'm poor but I'm kind
I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah
I'm high but I'm grounded
I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed
I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby

And what it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be fine fine fine
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving a high five

I feel drunk but I'm sober
I'm young and I'm underpaid
I'm tired but I'm working, yeah
I care but I'm restless
I'm here but I'm really gone
I'm wrong and I'm sorry baby

What it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be quite alright
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is flicking a cigarette

[Harmonica solo]

And what it all comes down to
Is that I haven't got it all figured out just yet
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving the peace sign

I'm free but I'm focused
I'm green but I'm wise
I'm hard but I'm friendly baby
I'm sad but I'm laughing
I'm brave but I'm chickenshit
I'm sick but I'm pretty baby

And what it all boils down to
Is that no one's really got it figured out just yet
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is playing the piano
And what it all comes down to my friends
Is that everything's just fine fine fine
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is hailing a taxi
