The year end holidays usually present an opportune time for travel. You work all year long, saving money and your annual leaves in the hopes of planning a getaway to your next dream travel destination.
However, not all of us are fortunate enough to be able to escape from the hustle and bustle of the holidays in Malaysia. Most of us
are forced need to stay in Malaysia in preparation for the festive season and it can be quite a pain in the behind. If you’re one of these poor unfortunate souls, here are some of the things that you will definitely understand.
1. When you have to clean your house to prepare for the festive season
Dust is flying, furniture being moved, bedsheets and curtains and everything cloth-like being changed; it feels like your parents are inciting a purging ritual!
2. When you have to follow your parents for a last-minute shopping trip and all the malls are sibeh packed
It takes forever to find a parking spot and when you finally do, you enter the mall only to be greeted by a tsunami of humans getting all their last minute shopping done. Why? Because we’re Malaysian and ‘Procrastination’ is our middle name.
3. But at least you have the amazing festive displays that the malls put up in conjunction with the holidays
In all honesty, some of the elaborate decorations and set ups all over the malls could rival those outside of Malaysia. It ends up becoming an attraction all on its own! And probably the reason why there are so many people in the mall. Want to ‘kaypoh’ and see, ma!
4. Of course, who can forget the Christmas songs playing in malls and stores
It really puts you in the festive mood for the holidays too. However, that might not be the case if you work in retail and are forced to listen to it over and over and over again. It’s okay, we feel you.
5. Seeing all the social media updates of your friends enjoying their destination holidays be like
You see your friends experiencing new things and immersing themselves in different cultures all while you’re stuck dealing with crazy relatives and preparing for the festivities.
6. You finally have time to lepak but your friends aren’t around
Especially if you haven’t had time for a lepak session in a loooong time. Now that you finally have the time though, your friends are probably sun bathing in the Caribbean or making snow angels.
7. When your relatives stampede your house and you have to layan them
Not to mention having to deal with the usual onslaught of questions that will put Vogue’s 73 Questions to shame.
8. You start to daydream about all the places you want to travel to
All the while bitterly thinking ‘I could be throwing snow in someone’s face right about now instead of being here’
