Well, a lot of Malaysian students going overseas choose not to return to Malaysia, and stay overseas for years after getting their degrees. On the other hand, quite a few return, too - and these are not necessarily bonded scholarship students.

Given a choice, which country would you go to to work, and why?

Depends. I think patriotism plays a part here. If you see patriotism as an integral part, or maybe u prefer to stay with your family, Malaysia is for you. Personally I think working overseas is much more lucrative and the environment will be more condusive. For example, the gap between the technology of Malaysia and others such as Japan.

Ok, to me, I think career is not the sole part of life. So, I think I will go around the world to see the world. So , overseas. Hope my big dream comes true...lol

yes it would be great to work overseas but the first year could be hell
hehehehe
unless you already adapt living there and already secure a job

but for me
if we didnt come back to m'sia,who would be the 1 to rule m'sia,to build up our economy???
tell me???
we are saying that we dont want the mediocre to rule our country but whou would if everyone is working oversea??
and plus,though we are not bonded to serve for our country,how much have our country paid for our primary and secondary education
though we cant really feel that we are using goverment money but we did....
at least come back here and serve..........
we are the one who's going to make a difference to our country..
just my two cents.........

P/S:this is only my thoughts and if you really love overseas,you can either go holiday there or works in international companies......or at least serve in m'sia for a few years..

ok im talking crap

It may actually be easier in certain fields to secure jobs overseas - especially if you've uni-ed and graduated from that country - but I digress.

I suppose my personal opinion is : I find it very very hard to give a damn about what's happening in Malaysia. My family is scattered around the world, my friends more so.

I dare say that the taxes my parents have paid more than enough covered my primary and secondary schooling - and no offense, but the standards aren't that high - and the "rot" of SK was already starting when I was there - from what I heard the "good schools" are being gutted even more...

Its not that I really love overseas - its that Malaysia doesn't seem to welcome us anymore.

I think family and friends play a much larger role than patriotism in the case of people who do go back.

Why I want to work in Malaysia:
(1) My family is settled here.
(2) I prefer Malaysia girls compared to OVS girls
(3) Pay is high and opportunity is everywhere.
(4) Malaysia is a peaceful country.

Why I won't work in Malaysia:
(1) I have a far higher pay OVS.
(2) I have lost my love towards everything in Malaysia.
(3) Malaysia is at war with other countries.
(4) I don't like Malaysia food.

Given a choice, I won't. At this moment, Malaysia's political scenario is embarassing and the country is in a mess. If nothing changes soon, I fear that there may be nothing left of Malaysia by the time I graduate.

you sound contradictory....

i believe given chance many would like to contribute back to m'sia but they do not due to reasons like political scene etc.

still, working ovs may not be as glamourous as it sounds. yes the pay's good but this is a case of grass greener on the other side...at the end of the day, many ppl i know who work ovs still make malaysia their home...

And one thing, if I were to work oversea, its not for the glamour.. its to run away from problems-which seems cowardly but what the heck. LOL-

Well, I would say that it's the underlying racial factor and the misused Social Contract in the working context.

But, for me, If I were given a choice, I will try to work abroad. At least for a few years, before I return back to my home in Malaysia.

It's always noble to say to come back to help. But, without capitals, how are we going to help? If we mentioned about contributing our talents and things we have learnt in overseas to the society, but nobody cares or suppresses u in certain ways. What would u think?

Patriotism can be defined in a broad sense. =)
