I thought it was the hardest experience, but many taught me about patience.
“My mother has been working in Malaysia since I was a kid, and now I follow her footsteps and work here as well. I think it’s my responsibility to take care of my mother even though she has been here for a long time and already fit with life and society in Malaysia. My sister in law brought me here, and she taught me how to get used to working abroad.
The first time I came, I worked in a nursing home as a caretaker. Usually, older people will have a lot of problems but I continue working. I usually take care of my mother so I get used to taking care of old people. I got married after a few years in Malaysia and still took care of my mother even though I already have my own family here. ”
