(my) Selangor (story), Grab me Fast!

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. You are the guy who’ll decide where to go."----Dr.Seuss

OH. I really love that quotes! When I read it, I just feel that I’m free. I could be what I wanna be and go to everywhere that I want. Because of that quotes, now I know exactly what I want to be: a writer and traveller (it’s really my-dream-job-ever!)

Currently, I’m a young journalist in Lembaga Kantor Berita Nasional (LKBN) Antara, Indonesia. I’ve been writing in mass media since I was in junior high. Such an article for some popular youth magazine and newspaper, local and national. I usually write an article about music, tourism, culture, and art. For me, writing is the medium to express myself, thoughts and ideas.

I’m so curious about the universe. That’s why I always like something new; new friends, new places, new culture, and also new experiences. With travelling, I can get all those things in the same time. That’s why, I declare that writing and travelling are my passion.

I’ve visited USA last year, and Taiwan in this year. However, can you believe it, I haven't visited my-closest-neighboring-country yet, Malaysia. Ironic.

So, if I’ll be the lucky one, who selected to be the one of “top30”, it’s gonna be my first! For sure, its time for me to know more about Malaysia, especially Selangor. I’m so excited. I can expand my network, get new experiences, practice my skill writing, and try to start my-future-job as a writer and traveller.

Well, I’m ready for this. So Selangor, grab me fast!
