Being a 9-5 Employee in Kuala Lumpur

Most Malaysians know what it’s like to live a 9 to 5 life. Thus, most people know how hard it is to live it, especially when you have other responsibilities. Responsibilities like taking care of a family or even just trying to feed yourself every day all the while trying to keep your financial state stable. Living that life is also quite harder when you live in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. This is one of the busiest states here and due to the capitalism that exists here, everything is pricier. The food, transport and even when you’re trying to look for a house to rent in Dutamas. However, most of our younger generations don’t like being tied down to a 9 to 5 job. These younger generations like Gen-Z will probably feel like they are being restricted and tied down. Nevertheless, there are some benefits to living that life.  

One of the benefits of being in a 9 to 5 job is that you will most likely have less responsibility over anything else except for your own work. You can seek out for what kind of work you want to do and when you’ve settled into any workplace, you will only have to think of your work. To be put simply, you will get consistently paid for working under your boss’ needs, with no other responsibility other than what you’re assigned to. Rather than stressing yourself out with all the factors under running a business because it is not easy running a business, especially when you are trying to get a Segambut house for rent. Not to say that you shouldn’t be chasing your dreams, this is just some people’s preference, or maybe some don’t have the privilege of starting their own business than others. There’s nothing wrong with either of the two, again, just a preference.

Other than being paid consistently, a plus side to working a 9 to 5 job is that you will most likely not be subjected to working after working hours. As a salaried employee with a certain amount paid according to the hours you work, you’re not obligated to work overtime. Thus, unless your employer asks you to work overtime and will pay you extra for your overtime, you do not have to bring your work back home with you. For instance, when you’re working in the Kuala Lumpur area and you have to commute quite a long journey back to your Gombak condo, being tired and whatnot, you wouldn’t have to think about work anymore. You could just get home, lay back and relax.

Thus, in short, working a 9-5 job can be beneficial and not as bad as it is portrayed to be. Some people enjoy a routined week rather than an unplanned week. So it is totally up to you in terms of what kind of work environment, or how you would want to work on a daily basis. Find out what suits you and what is best for you since you’ll be earning money for what you do, might as well love it while you’re at it.
