I'm currently making 5 short videos and ads for competitions all around the world. I'm not much of a social butterfly to land contracts in Malaysia so I prefer to get my much needed experiences by entering competitions.
I have poor parents so to I fuel my passion with the money I make from competitions. I don't think they even understand how badly I want to be the best in the biz so they only gave me money for food and transport. I am not alone. Malay parents are usually like this. They don't like to invest on their children. Instead, they invest most of their money on their houses, cars and land. They want their kids to suffer like how they suffered when they were younger. This is why most second generation malays are in the poor-middleclass category.

We're going to make it, Afiq! Us, second generation, poor middle class, heavy and heaving with dreams, gungho inheritors of the scant Malay legacy.

Meet you at the end, along with the other survivors and martyrs of dream chasers!

(What? I'm in a chipper mood.)

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real income.
It's all about how to choose a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

don't put it that way.
you should take pride that you are given a chance to stand on your own.

it's really an honor.

besides, you are young, fit n healthy, talented, determined (if you want to be)....

seriously, you would'nt want to sponge on your parents $$$ at your age. it is totally outdated.

feeling bitter is not healthy.
