It’s hard for me to stay far away from my son because he is just a baby but for our future, I took the decision to go to Malaysia.
“I just arrived to Malaysia 3 days ago and still do not know anything about life in Malaysia. It’s hard for me to adjust but I have no choice but to work here. Before this, I just stayed at home and took care of my son but after my husband, who also worked in Malaysia, asked me to work with him, I agreed and asked my mother to take care of my son.
It’s hard for me to stay far away from my son because he is just a baby but for our future, I took the decision to go to Malaysia. At first I felt reluctant to go to Malaysia but looking at our current situation, I feel the urge to work abroad.
My sister who lives with my mother also helps to take care of my son. Almost every day I call my son to say hello. He may still be a baby and not be able to speak but as long as I can see his face and smile, my heart is happy.”
