Blurt It Out!!


Posted on: July 25, 2014

Living here in penang, i saw/feel more for the underpriviliged/poor people.

Back in kl,i was living in a nice area, working with colleagues who are earning at par, and my circle of friends and acquitances are doing well in their career. I don’t think they earn rm2k per month per household.

Now that i’m in penang, working at manufacturing centre and daily get to see and hear (surau gossips) their struggle, i felt embarassed worrying abt money when clearly, i seems to be earning well than most of them.

Even when we go for shopping, the gap is quite clear. There’s danish in his manner like a spoilt rich kid yelling i want this and that etc and then at another corner i saw a boy checking out price and told his sister, no, we only allowed 10 ringgit each. They glance at danish holding huge box of playdoh.

Damn, i felt quilty. I felt sad. I felt helpless. And later i regret that i didnt at least pay for their purchases.

I felt a lot more of this feeling here. And with raya coming, i heard more.
“That baju kurung is 80 ringgit? Thats expensive. I can get a rm50 at this one shop bla bla”.
I just kept quiet. Hope they never ask how much my baju worth huhu.

I am so blessed. Seeing all this daily made me appreciate my life more. If you see their struggle, hear their stories, you wont complain abt ur life.

I wish i know how to help.
