I Feel for You, Sister

Wednesday, January 06, 2016

Hi guise,

Sekarang tengah musim budak-budak kalut tunggu result permohonan IPTA kan? Adik aku yang nombor 3 tu baru je habis diploma. Sekarang tengah melangok kat rumah sambil tunggu panggilan untuk sambung degree. 

Dia tak suka aku post entry dalam BM sebab dia cakap ayat aku merapu. So izinkan aku taip dalam BI walaupun taklah bagus mana. For those who are expecting some comic post, sorry..

You may escape this entry now because this will be lengthy. Click on the spoiler below.


I have 3 sisters as some might already know. The third daughter, Cauda, 21yo is my biggest worry now. She never had a clear ambition before. Unlike Onie and I, she wasn't sure what she want to do in the future. She chose to go for Accountancy out of convenience instead of interest. Which to me is great because accountancy is a promising field.

She completed her diploma with a 3.5 CGPA (allow me to brag. I am very proud of her). Despite being able to cope with the relatively new field (she was a Life Science student), she lacks motivation to continue down the path. After a turbulent soul searching, she found her true calling. A passion she never realize she had. An interest in Linguistic.

Nervously, she seeks us older sisters for consultancy. This is a completely different path from what the family envisioned for her. So naturally she needs our opinion, if not a strong support for her to decide. Onie and I immediately agree with her. It's the first time she had shown an interest on something, so naturally we are very happy for her. We encourage her to find out more about the course. FYI, it is Translation and Interpretation of Foreign Language.

She is very interested in taking the Korean Language considering she's now quite familiar with the language. It might not necessarily be Korean but she already had some basic in that language. Plus she also intends to learn more than one foreign language. Now, at this point some might think,

"Ahh it's a kpop thing"
"How delusional"

But she especially searched for accredited courses in Malaysia. It's not because she wants to fly to South Korea just to live her dream as a kpop fan. Unfortunately no institute in Malaysia offers Bachelor Degree in Korean Translation and Interpretation. If you know any, please link. We would love to find out more. 

Obviously the next choice is to apply for the course in South Korea. Yes, the land of Kpop idols.

Now this is the tricky part, after sending Onie to India for the last 5 years, my dad is strictly against going to oversea university. And my mom, well she's just not convinced that the course could bring food to the table. I  could write about 2 pages long essay on why translation/interpretation work is one of the most sought after service nowadays. Plus, working from the comfort of your own home. How nice is that?

But this is not about proving anything to my parents. This entry, should you read this, is to ask for opinion from those who had taken the same path because my sister really need someone to talk to about this. It would mean a lot to her. So if you know anything about studying in South Korea and maybe some input on Translation and Interpretation course, please please please drop your email or your two cents in the comment section.

To those who read this but has nothing in particular to say about this issue, just drop comment like "Huh, kentut bau petai" just to mess with the rest.



Akhir kata..

Err..
Peace? *gelak nervous*

  3. Lucky Cauda.
    At least dia ada 2 kakak yg supportive dan menjadi tempat nak luah perasaan.
    I know a guy yang sangat unlucky, dia kena lalui situasi yang sama seorang diri.
    Tak dapat nak tolong apa, tapi aku doakan semuanya berakhir dengan senyuman.

    Btw, kentut aku bau cheese sebab terlebih makan cheese. Hahahaha

  4. Hmm, if I were in your shoes, I would support her decision. If she's serious about it, just support her. After all, it's her life. If she's not so serious about it, then start suggesting some other options that she can see herself going about it rather pleasantly in the future. All the best to cauda-chan! :)
