I know... I hate finding blog posts that are just videos too, but give this one a go! Normally my travel posts consist of a lot of photos and a couple of words here and there, so treat this like a long photo reel or something. I promise it's not boring and it's not a vlog.
Every year we make that yearly trip to Malaysia to see the relatives, and the country is pretty much my second home. This time round we only stayed for 3 weeks compared to our usual of about 4-5, so it felt quite short and I was worried I hadn't gone through the usual 'escape' process where I change for the better not being around the influence of people back home and all that.
I think that instead of changing due to a lack of influence though, I've changed due to the influence found in Malaysia. I've always been someone who loves feeling superior being of the same culture as everyone around me in Malaysia, but feels inferior being of the minority when I return to Australia. I guess I've now realised that the whole race difference isn't a sign of superiority or inferiority, but it rather makes me diverse in the sense that I have the best of both worlds.
I've never really been proud of my culture before. In fact, I've probably been somewhat the opposite. I guess that now I've come to the realisation that I should love it because of the food and diversity and my family, and because it really makes up at least 50% of who I am.
