Thank you, Macau!

The first night in Macau was unforgettable, nothing bad happened but i just couldn’t really forget that night. Perhaps because i was alone and everything was so unfamiliar to me, and i even slept shivering on bed.

I remembered i came across this online job posting to work in Macau and i applied for it. Attended a skype interview and i was concern whether it was a scam job initially. However after some research on the company and receiving official documents for pre-employment, just like this, i left Malaysia for Macau in mid of December 2018.

The first night in Macau was unforgettable, nothing special happened but i just couldn’t really forget that night. Perhaps because i was alone and everything was so unfamiliar to me, and i even slept shivering on bed. There was no comforter given so i had to bear with the cold weather, not the type that can bear cold weather if you don’t know me. Addition to that, i’m a banana so there will be some inconvenience living there but not a big deal i guess. Saying this because there were other nationalities like Pilipino working there as well.

Curious how was my life there?
I worked 6 days a week, traveling by bus and walking, reaching earlier at work for meal and uniform collection, always abit hurry before work so that i can punch card on time, always abit hurry after work so that i can catch the bus on time. The only time i get to relax was during my day off, as i don’t really prefer hanging out on working days. Basically i was little psychically and mentally tired, especially when i have to bear with the 2 weeks cycle shift, and the midnight shift. On top of that, there was a little dormitory issues since there were like 8-10 girls living in the same unit apartment, and girls can be really a little troublesome, sometimes.

Wiping those negativities aside, i really do appreciate the life experiences that i had there. Working abroad has always broaden my mind, and that’s the thing i like about it. It was a short 4 months, only 121 days, but the memories will stay forever in my heart ― Thank you, Macau.
