When you are abroad, you work harder at your marriage…

So have I quoted from an opinion piece written in theStar. Interesting….

In fact, my mother once said that it’s better for married couples to live out of Malaysia; marriages back home are so screwed up. When you’re in a foreign country, you work harder at a marriage.

[…]

True, Kak Dina, our friends in KL are millionaires now, and we’re struggling in a new land. But there’s something sick about KL. The people, the way we live, it’s not a place to bring up a family,” she wrote.

“Anyway, Kak Dina, Islam is a portable religion. You can practise it anywhere, you can pray anywhere, and there are many Muslims here! Jom lah, Kak D, duduk lah sini. You’ll love it here. Bookshops? museums?”

Ouch! And here I was thinking that if I get married, I wouldn’t want to raise my kids in Singapore. I would love to have them grow up in KL, or if not somewhere in Malaysia.

As you have probably surmised, the writer is a Malay Muslim Malaysian lady. Brain drain is indeed color blind.
