A Second Chance

After the struggles in Indonesia, I returned back to Malaysia with new dreams and resolutions.

“I’ve been in Malaysia for almost a decade and if I ever think of any differences in my life, it changed me a lot. My life in Malaysia consists of many experiences! There was one time when my house was invaded by Malaysian Immigration officers, at 1 am and I was asleep. I was scared when I heard loud knocks at the door and about 10 Immigration officers and policemen were ready to invade our house. We were asked to sit in lockup for 5 days while waiting to be sent back to Indonesia.

I almost gave up but I tried to stay calm and solve my problem. I went back to the village, spent time with my kids and family and renewed my working permit. After the struggles in Indonesia, I returned back to Malaysia with new dreams and resolutions. “
