Though I was a fickle minded child, my *i-want-to-work-as-when-i-grow-up* list remained unchanged right up till high school.
I have to say, dad and mom were glad that I could make my mind up about at least one thing.
So what is it that I wanted to become so badly?And hopefully I'd blow the judges away with my incredible talents and personality that they'd cancel Miss Universe for all the coming years because they wanted me to remain with the title until I died. Well of course after I died, they could reopen the competition once again.
When I was in Form 4 (agak agak la) miss JOANNA KHOO burst my bubble. She called me while on holiday in KL.
"Sabrina! You would not believe this! The Miss Malaysia contestants were at the same hotel as me.. and they are so tall! You cannot be miss Malaysia anymore la!"
"Maybe they were wearing heels?"
"NO! even without heels they'd be like a head taller than us"
I wanted to be
Why? Because.. urm... Who doesn't want to?
My aunt who worked for Cathay Pacific was my role model for donkey years. Everything she said, everywhere she went, i followed (when i could). Oh and by the way, she was Miss Ipoh too, so i guess that's where the whole Miss universe dream came from.
I actually still have this occupation in mind. My grandma has a thing for asking me every know and then if i still wanted to work with Malaysian Airlines.
"Yup, Daddy says i can work for them after I've completed my degree"
"Oh.. then I have some advice for you"
"What is it?"
"Don't join Malaysian Airlines, their uniform not nice one, Join Cathay Pacific, the colar is V shape one, can see your collar bone, very sexy"
"Oh.. okay, i'll see if they want to take me la"
"Oh, and don't join Singapore Airlines, their plates are very heavy!"
Most of the time, I'd leave the 3rd choice out. I was POSITIVE that I'd turn out to be either Miss Universe or a stewardess, or maybe even BOTH!
Now I'm 19 and I still ask myself what do I want to be. And compared to when I'm 7, I'm way more unsure now.
I guess I'll just go with the flow.
