I have a friend who's got a passion into something,
and he's giving everything he got into it like the air
in his lung is depending on it.
I cant tell u guys his actual thing right?
he'll find this blog and know i'm talking
about him right away!
ok, lets just say that he climb walls or rocks.
when he was young, regardless of people's smirk
and jitter about him doing such dangerous sport,
he kept going on, spending most of his weekends
polishing his skills and going to tournament
here and there. waahhh!! the bujang life :D
scratches here, scratches there, a few torn
muscle and broken bones was never an issue
for him. He loves it with all his heart.
But then he got married.
His mother thought he would stop doing the
dangerous sport that only ask u one thing.
Hold On and live? or Let Go to die,
but instead he kept going strong.
Even with the babies coming out, his fingers
is still stained by the chalk they use to
rock climbing and his baby's first rattler was
made from carabiner stacked in together.
Pergh!! a true man's way of living.
Then his life changed.
They start to call him up not for him to enter
competitions, but for him to do demo's or be
the trainer in places they're teaching SPM
kids who never care about rock climbing
or flying fox stunt.
He got payment of course,
and they're paying him generously...
He is now in his forties with memories of
climbing K2 kept in the living room by the
pic of him posing naked in the snow.
He is now arranging people for rock climbing trips,
giving training and demo's on safety features.
Lectures on how to be safe and gear maintenance.
He is doing good now,
still working in kilang like i do,
with weekends full of trips to all over malaysia
(Including nearby country like Singapore, Japan, Thailand)
His wife never complain much, as she got the trip
to all over the world as the bribe.
I guess I have to say that I envy him,
His hard work and passion finally paid off.
So what is our passion or interest pocketeers?
Are we doing good with it?
Are we good in doing it?
Any good doing it?
