Life choice

“Have you seen enough of the out­side world?” asked dad from the other side of the phone.

I remained silence as I didn’t know what to say.

“It’s time for you to come back.” he continued.

It’s not the first time he asks this ques­tion. And it’s not the first time either I remain silence.

He sel­dom call. Most of the time mom did. But this time seems dif­fer­ent. He sounded firm.

Don’t get me wrong, I did not run away from home. I’m just liv­ing my lives, apart from his.

My fam­ily runs fam­ily busi­nesses at my home­town, which have been run­ning even before I was born.

Work­ing for him when the kids grow up seems to be the default plan. How­ever, I took a dif­fer­ent route 3 years ago when I started a new life in KL.

Life wasn’t easy back then. But it was my choice and I’m happy of where I am now.

Every time I go back to my home­town, he will pop the same question.

“Let me think about it” has always been my answer. And I’ve been using that answer for more than 3 years now.


Few weeks ago my brother called ask­ing me the same ques­tion. Few days later, mom called and now my dad.

It seems like the time has come for me to set things clear.

I have to make a choice.

In one hand, I have my dreams; while in the other, I have their’s.

Life has always been about choices we make. And the direc­tion of our lives comes down to the choices we choose.

And to be frank, I am extremely bad at mak­ing choices. No mat­ter which path I choose, I have to give up something.

Well, that’s life. No one says it’s going to be easy.

The choices I have are not that dif­fi­cult to choose actu­ally. As I already have the answer with me.

But the dif­fi­cult part is let­ting go what’s in the other hand.

We believe in you, and you, you will make a good one for your­self.
Some­time it’s really hard to let go of some­thing you wish you don’t have to, but if you don’t do it thing will get ugly one day.
And I believe that is the bet­ter choice.
No mat­ter what, you have us. No mat­ter where you are. :)

p.s. let your­self to be the first to choose who you wanna be.

be a man, do the right thing.

Take a look at things, from a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive. you will see a whole new mean­ing behind them. (i calm myself all the time with this the­ory XD)

so, good or bad choice, stand firm and enjoy each and every steps u take.

Deci­sion makin on such issue is always hard. Am happy for you no mat­ter what you’ve decided. Sophea is right, friends worth more than the finest gem you can find in this world. You’ll always have the blessins & care from friends.
Embark­ing in a new chap­ter of life was never easy. But you’ll even­tu­ally sur­vive lookin back to the won­der­ful mem­o­ries that you had. The choice you made in life will always be a good one as God looks after you everyday.

The pic­ture really tells a thou­sand words.

You have got your deci­sion right, back to months ago you’ve also told me your angst.

What do you think:)

May the road rise to meet you May the wind be always at your back

Take a coin, throw it up to the air.

It is the fate that put you in this sit­u­a­tion, now let the fate turn it for you again…

Good luck 😆
