In this day and age, many Malaysians have taken up second jobs in the form of part time roles and freelance positions in an effort to earn more money may it be for important reasons such as family needs or not so important reasons like lifestyle needs and expensive hobbies.

This chase for money, also known as ‘hustle culture’, has become such a norm that those who choose not to participate may often be considered lazy or unambitious.

A Malaysian recently took to the TwtSecretsMY Twitter page to ask whether it is bad that they don’t want to ‘hustle’, especially at their young age.

They wrote, “Is it okay if I don’t want to hustle? I’m in my early twenties and am always being told to ‘hustle’, as in take a part time job during the weekends, or work freelance on the side.”

“I used to say, ‘nope, I’m tired enough from my full time job‘, but I get compared to others who do (delivery roles such as) Grab, Foodpanda or Lalamove on the side even after their 12 hour (full time) shifts.”


They’ve been told that they shouldn’t be tired after their full time job as the position isn’t physically draining.

“I work in an office setting, a lot of sitting down, so apparently I can’t be as ‘tired’. Yes, I start work at 9am but I’m already up by 6am every working day. And I reach home at 7pm, earliest. But if the LRTs and MRTs act up, I usually reach home nearer to 8pm,” they added.


Many have since shared their opinion that the confessor should do whatever they think is best for themselves, which includes not ‘hustling’ if they don’t want to. 

But they do believe that the confessor should at least have their finances in order in the form of a retirement plan.
