It has been 5 years since I step into this strange, yet familiar land, Malaysia. A place where I lived for the past 13 years; a place where I call home, and a place where I love.
Malaysia, Located in the bottom part of Asia is known for it's multi-cultural diversity. Every different races work together to achieve goals. Malaysia had only 13 states, and behind every city and state, there lies a story. For instance, Baling is a city located in Northwest Malaysia; Baling stands for "throwing" in Malay. Legend claimed that long ago, there was a king that drank blood for living, and he loved to use blood as one of the "ingredients" for his dishes. With his thrist for blood, the king not only killed all the prisoners, but the commoners as well. Upon drinking their blood for so long, his fangs began to grow, and that had made him pain. He realized that he had killed too many that his people were afraid of him, so he decided to stop killing. He went to a place, took out his fangs, and threw it away. Later, this king became the greatest king in the history of baling, and the people named that place "Baling" to honor the king. There are many interesting stories and lessons lie beneath Malaysia that awaits for us to discover. Moreover, Malaysia, known for it's tropical paradise, are host to many animals that we have never seen before. From the tiniest red ant to the biggest elephant; from the rarest black shrew to the most common squirrel, Malaysia surely is a paradise for them. There's still thousands of animals that hasn't been discovered in Malaysia, so visit Malaysia and discover.
I have learnt many important lessons during my 1 month in Malaysia. That is, family is the best gift that everyone could ever get, and that they plays an important role in our lives. I've learnt to cherist today as if today is the last day of our lives; live, as if this is the last moment of our breathe. It was an excruciating feeling to leave this place once again, upon leaving this place, I have brought with me, the memory that lies deep beneath my heart that'll last forever.
