As a young person, I used to have this big dream of becoming a larger-than-life household name in Malaysia, gracing every local magazines cover. (Laugh if you want, but I was quite optimistic that I would nail it; at least gracing ONE magazine cover! LOL) . I was excited with the idea of living as a popular face well-known figure. But now, as I have become mature (still in the process but I can pat my back for being more mature than my yesteryears) and more analytical, I would have to say that the dream is not appealing to me anymore. I have a more concrete goal. A more ultimate aspiration.
In Malaysia, living life as a celebrity is simply superficial ( at least in Hollywood you have the power of starstruck, commanding big bucks salary!). Just take a look at the local entertainment- TV programme "Melodi". Tak habis2x with all the backstabbings, badmouthings and umpat-mengumpat. Furthermore, most of the crowd in the entertainment industry are so catty and FAKE! Now that I have my own goal and aspiration, a career that really reflects my sense of belongings, IQ level and self-privacy would be the one I’m aiming.
The reason why i wrote this is a personal issue. I never mean to insult anyone (if ada readers yg nak claim as a member of the Malaysian entertainment ni kan). This is because now is the time where there is actually a possibility of me becoming a household name (tak payah la saya huraikan semuanya tapi peluangnya ada sekarang!) but surprisingly it doesn’t appeal to me anymore. Have I grown as seseorang yg lebih matang? I would like to perceive that as a positive energy kerana dlm hidup, transisi kematangan perlu untuk mencorak diri. I guess satu fasa kecil dlm hidup telah saya alami and the butterfly will soon cracks the cocoon !~
Kini Menuju Ke Destinasi (yeah)
Puncak Cinta Tertinggi (yeah)
Aku Takkan Jemu
Kerna Cinta Itu Termanis Bagiku.
