Those who has everything but is nothing or those who has nothing but is everything
I have a very close pet brother who is an ex-student if an International school in Kuala Lumpur. Though him, I got to meet and mingle with a group of 9 ‘rich’ brats, those who were born with silver and some even gold spoon their mouth. I was very closely knitted to them for a few months.. At the same time, through my Rotary/Rotaract network, I got to know a group of young people that has just recently joined the working world.
On the Surface.
Rich Brats-My first impression over them is like ‘these people are really cool’ This is because in that group of 9, all were driving cars with purchase value over RM1million, fully equipped with the latest gadgets, dressed in luxury brands, dinning in the finest restaurants.
Working group- Most of them were from average families and is most of the time are struggling to juggle with their financial commitment. Every Ringgit spent was carefully thought over and they have to save up for months for a ‘simple’ holiday.
After hanging out with these 2 groups over time, I notice the following…

That short period of 6 months mingling with the two groups taught me many things, and the quote below is one of my favourite and that I have been constantly reminding myself .
