One Brain is Chen May Yee, a Malaysian journalist who lived in the US for nine years.
Before moving back to KL, I spent my time writing homesick essays like this one in the Nut Graph, ” Should I Stay or Should I Go.” I was even featured in the New York Times, “Loss of Young Talent Thwarts Malaysia’s Growth.” (I just barely made the “young” category, and some might dispute the “talent” bit too.)
What’s it been like? Well, the good stuff’s still good and the bad stuff’s still bad. But we came back for the good stuff and we can all help to make the bad stuff better.
I’d love to hear from other returnees, thinking-of returnees and i-will-never-returnees. Think of me as a one-woman TalentCorp, only without the multi-million-ringgit budget.
One Brain is my personal blog. I recently started www.Outstation.my – for Malaysians Abroad, Returnees and Everyone in Between. Take a look see.
