IN January 2012, I turned 24 and began to learn what it was like being a working adult. I faced many challenges in beginning a new life in busy Kuala Lumpur without my family around. Renting a house in a crowded area near the city centre taught me to become braver and to always be alert about my surroundings and my own security. City folk have taught me a lot about life and friendship and work.
My biggest dream for this year is to get married by the end of it. I do believe in God’s plan, as He always knows better than me. But I really, truly wish that I can become a wife by end of 2013. That’s my dream, his dream, our dream.
Also, this is the year in which my two youngest brothers are scheduled to complete their studies, and I really hope that both of them will do well in their studies.
Apart from that, I hope that by year’s end I will have a stable and satisfactory job about which I can say, “This is the career I’ve been looking for”.
For all the citizens of my beloved Malaysia, I wish a happy and prosperous 2013. To everyone, everywhere, I hope that this will be a year that will give rise to new hope and new lives to those who are in need.
