Blinded By Eternity

“I got married to a Bangladeshi man 3 years ago, even though our culture is very different, I didn’t really mind..”

“I am the only one in my family that is willing to work abroad with the hope to find additional money for our monthly spending. At the same time, I am also looking for more experience in another country. I have been working in Malaysia for 7 years and now I’ve got a job that really suits me. I’m working as a helper in the kitchen and my employer is very kind and understanding. She never treats me like I’m a foreign worker, but just like everyone else. I am very thankful to God for all the blessings I get while I’m in Malaysia. At first, I was quite scared because I never went out of my hometown and now I start to feel confident and bold. I got married to a Bangladeshi man 3 years ago, even though our culture is very different, I didn’t really mind. I think he is my soulmate in this world and hereafter. At first, my parents did not approve our relationship, but they have slowly accepted it.”
