“Adulting is hard!” That’s what Malaysians often hear as a follow-up to a rant about newfound responsibilities, kan? It’s not an uncommon occurrence since almost everyone spends nearly two decades with their hands held by the Adults Who Came Before™! But for today, we’re gonna take a moment to ponder on small rewarding moments in our adult lives! Because not every adult thing we’ve accomplished needs to be awarded a fancy ribbon or medal to be meaningful!


1. “Got the job promotion I always wanted”

We all love a good promotion, kan? And we don’t just mean the shopping kind; we also mean the job kind, as it shows that your effort and performance at the workplace have been acknowledged by your employer! As Kavinash said when looking back at his first promotion, “The sense of pride and accomplishment I felt was like none other! Even though I only transitioned to a small supervisor role back then, I couldn’t help but feel like I could take over the world at that point!” – Kavinash, 32


2. “Changed my own car tyre without calling anyone”

Flat tyres can be quite alarming; more so if your phone is out of commission at the moment! Luckily, Yi Xin didn’t need to rely on her phone during one such roadside emergency! “My dad taught me how to change to a spare tyre a few times, which eventually proved to be useful once I suffered a tyre blowout for real! I didn’t call anyone for help so nobody even knew that I went through a flat-tyre situation! This must be what independence feels like!” – Yi Xin, 24


3. “Succesfully juggled my household chores and full-time job”

Working full-time can be a major hindrance to keeping your house clean and organised, betul tak? But once you’ve found the balance between your job and your chores, it can be a grand prize in itself! As Neena found out, “The trick is to divide each chore into my daily routine after work, such as doing the laundry on Monday night and then vacuuming the floor on the next. This new routine eventually felt normal, which felt like an achievement in balancing my work and my chores!” – Neena, 28


4. “Bought my own holiday gifts and decorations for my home”

Doing your own holiday preparations really hits differently if you’ve only ever done it with the help of your family before this. Whether you’re putting up a Christmas tree or filling in angpao for Chinese New Year, doing your own holiday prep really brings home (no pun intended!) the fact that you’re truly set up in your own place! As Vicky said, “Decorating my own house and preparing angpao this CNY feels like a rite of passage for me! Plus, this is my first opportunity to give back to my loved ones for the holidays, which is in itself also rewarding!” – Vicky, 24


5. “Applied for my very first credit card”

179429273 L

For a lot of young adults, any small step towards their own independence counts as a rewarding moment as well! One of these small steps may include getting their first credit card, which allows users to enjoy various benefits with their purchases with just one swipe of their card! Fauzi told us, “There’s just something oddly exciting about getting my first credit card. It feels like a coming-of-age moment where I finally have the freedom to make purchasing decisions as a grown adult. And with all the perks I get to enjoy from my first credit card, I definitely have no trouble feeling rewarded!” – Fauzi, 30

And what about you? Would you like to enjoy your share of perks and rewards from your first credit card like Fauzi? If you’re looking to obtain your first credit card, then Maybank has a special one for Malaysians everywhere!
