But what else did we do? Have we ever thought to do something beyond our leeway and ability?
From my point of view, we need to live our life to the fullest in order to escape doing the same things in this fucking boring daily life. We need to do something that deep inside our heart we never thought that we could possibly do it. We need to voice out what's inside our heart. We need to believe in ourselves. We need to fight for our chance and we need to live life to the fullest!
Talking about live life to the fullest; the made-in-Malaysia rebel, Hishamuddin Rais did very well where I think he is one of a few people that manage to live his life to the fullest without any regret.
In his life, Hishamuddin had fled the country and was remain exile for nearly 20 years. During this period of time, he managed to study French Language at University Catholic of Leuven la Neuve in 1984 and study Arts at Brixton College London. He also found time to get a degree in film and video from University of Westminster, London in 1992.
Then, in the year 2001, he was arrested under the Internal Security Act (ISA) where he was accused to masterminding the demonstrations in Kuala Lumpur during the Reformasi period.
Among the famous and wise words by Hishamuddin Rais are:
"In life, there is only one take, unlike the movies where you can have several takes until you are satisfied with what you want."
"One should not carry any baggage in one's life. It is very heavy - literally and spiritually."
"I have no regrets in my life. I wish I could have some regrets but I don't.'
Looking back at all his experiences, definitely Hishamuddin Rais has lived his life to the fullest. I salute you, Hishamuddin Rais!
