My Borneo Beautiful Friends
To all my readers who are far away from their Borneo homes...ever felt like a stranger once you set foot on the Peninsular island?
I know I did or at least my friends did too..my beautiful Borneo girls. Been friends ever since 12 years ago during our pre-Law degree days.
Being Borneo girls in the new land can be daunting to those who are not used to the fast moving city and environment. What more being the minority in the Malay majority university situations can be very scary and challenging. Temptations are always around to influence young and innocent girls to do sometimes "stupid" things, but I am glad that by good friendship we managed to stay true to who we are until now.
So my advise to university or college going girls particularly from the beautiful Borneo island...
be true to yourself,
be proud of your culture,
stay in school,
don't bow down to temptations that might hurt you and your family, andstay safe....
Even though we have let the uber modern era enveloped our lifestyles with all the technologies and what not, we never forget our roots, our culture.
So this time around my post is dedicated to all my girlfriends who are not afraid to show their culture be it in events and their weddings too! (Susan, Debra, Michele and myself). Aren't they lovely in their traditional costumes..Love you all...
