Well, life has been quite challenging so far. Living abroad is quite challenging, I must say. Like you have to understand others' culture eventho you don't want to, you have to learn their language eventho you don't want to, you have to eat everything that serves you despite the cleanliness, you have to substitute your daily meal especially seafood with something that is reasonable, you have to have this mentality "I don't give a fuck to what they say" coz most of the time they tend to degrade you ( their nations come first ) and you have to be sabr and keep a good attitude, you have to adapt with a situation where gender segregation is quite a major issue eventho you don't intend to do any bad things, you have to adapt with the way they perform their salat based on their on mazhab ( they don't cover fully but they still perform their prayer ) in which we can say Islam is universal, you have to be ready with socks or any proper clothes because there will be no telekung in the mosque ( no at all except like this huge kain idk what to call it ), you meet variety of people; some are good some are bad some are good at lying some tend to compliment how good malaysian are. Even among the Malaysian people, not all of them are good because that is what human natures are all about. That is the reason why you ( me ) have to have a very strong principle, principle that can't be compromise. A principle where you don't let what is in front of you at that moment take advantage on you. A strong principle without any shaky assurance, it is a must.
I am cot complaining. I love all these changes. And I love how these changes help me to see this beautiful world and beautiful country in the other perspective, I love how these changes help me to be independent and ask for help on others ( since I am too self dependent before this ), and how the destiny make us like a family, I love the changes when your family always ask whether you are in a good condition or not ( you will appreciate your family by this way ), changes to learn how to mingle with people that don't understand your culture at all, the changes where you have to change your bad attitudes to be better, the changes where you can see not all good people are good, the changes where you have to befriend with people that are much younger and much older than you, changes where you can see good things will happen if what is inside of you are good, changes where people that surround you are completely different compared to people that surround you during your preparation phase, changes where you can see there are so much gap between those who are poor and those who are rich, changes where you can see sometimes poverty-cycle is hard to be changed so we don't have the right to judge since we are not living their life, changes where you have to remind yourself not to be pushed by problems but be led by your dreams.
Life is a journey. It took strength to bring us ( me ) this now on the right time. I am thankful.
