I have always wanted to live overseas – not necessarily forever, but for a time. For years I tried to deny that desire, but after half my family left Malaysian shores, and my best friend to Britain, I decided it’s time to live my dream instead of living vicariously through other people’s lives.
So I did it. I handed a bunch of cash to the emigration agent, I signed some papers, and Lord, I have no idea if I’ll be able to make it or whether I’m making the biggest mistake of my life. All I know is that I’m listening to that inner person for once, and she’s quite happy that I am.
The practical side – the one that has been telling the inner person to shut up for years – is in panic mode because she realises that everything fammiliar will evaporate like steam in a few years’ time. And that includes a job I’m wild about, and having friends and family close by.
But yet … man, this is so exciting!
Hope you’ll join me on my journey 🙂
PS: Lots of people asked me which migration agent I used. I used Global Migration. I found them quite helpful and reliable. Dear Global Migration, I’m doing free advertising for you, you know! 😉 Gimme a free plane ticket back or something … 😛
