When I was young I was color blind and I loved the world. There’s so much I miss from my childhood. I miss being naive and ignorant of the world. Not knowing about how cruel the world can be. I miss hanging out with friends, no one saw color or wealth. I miss the days of being innocent. Those were the days.
These days I don’t have that same carefree feeling anymore. Everyday you find racial issues in the news, It’s so depressing. We were once a Muhibbah and NegaraKu nation. It breaks my heart to dream of moving abroad. Start all over again in a foreign land.
Well, I am glad it’s only a dream. Deep inside i know it’s never going to happen. Moving away means leaving behind everything. Family , friends and job. This is one challenge I cant do. I cant imagine life without my job in Toli and colleagues. Years working here made me what I am today. Every day and every shift I see fellow Malaysians of all races working together, contributing ideas, tears, sweat and blood to make the best products. We share the same goal and passion no matter the color of our skins. It may be disheartening out there but in here it is all the same. One team with one goal.
Now I believe that not everything we read is doom and gloom. Right here in Toli, there are many signs that shows the multinational characters can work as a team. People of diverse cultures and beliefs yet can exist in harmony. We may have our share of disagreements but its all good at the end of the day.It has given me renewed hope. Toli and my fellow colleagues have certainly brought the best of me. To feel Malaysian again. I am happy that once again I am color blind.
