“when i grow up i want to be a doctor”
yeah, that was my childhood dream, becoming a doctor. idk why actlly, probably cs at that time im js a kid, who lacks rational thinking. also my parents wanted me 2 b a doctor so that might be a contributing factor too. but as u grow up, u become more mature, u learn things, u start 2 understand d true meaning of a career, n u work ur way up. it was probably during my 4th year at secondary school when i finally hv a clear image of what i wanted 2 be in d future.
although, things may not be easy as it seems. u learn tougher things, u encounter failures, u start thinking “why did i took this course in d 1st place?” n stuff like that. eventually without knowing it, u start 2 swerve frm d main course of ur planned life. u feel hopeless, u start regretting taking up d course cs u thought u cn do better in other fields. then u develop an interest in other things, and another, and another, until u become confused abt ur path. that clear image of what u want 2 be suddenly fades away as a new image emerges, and another, and another..
this is frm my own personal experience. i wanted 2 be an aeronautical engineer, due 2 d fact that i hv built up a fondness towards aircrafts. i enrolled myself into this engineering programme full of hope, js like a kid’s 1st day in school. then it got tougher, and along d way i encountered some problems. i started feeling down in d dumps. i suddenly began 2 take a liking towards art (blaming my wacom fr that. ha3), sketching portraits of ppl, exploring new things with colours. i started having these fantasies of me opening up a design company rather than spending my life maintaining aircrafts like i always wanted to.
then it occured to me. i was js running away frm my complications. instead of fixing d problem, i was daydreaming. it was that moment that i thought, why not combine a bit of both; engineering and design? which is why frm nw on i hv a new path towards my future career. not new as in shiny brand new, but more of a “modified” path..
i want to be, a design engineer :)

Good one bro! From my experience (bunyi mcm tua sgt je!) ..it all start with angan2..sbb tu kalo kita angan2..should go for it. I was like u many years back.wanted to become aircraft maintenance engineer so bad (I love aviation!!), at the same time mmg suka construction gak. End up taking Civil Engineering.. Alhamdulillah with good planning, ever since kuar Uni, kejer with airport project jek until now. So get to combine the best of both world. :) Moral of the story, go and chase ur angan2. InsyaAllah with doa usaha tawakal, u’ll get it. All the best bro.
will do. insyaAllah. thanks! :D
