My Internship with Society

Wake up, go to work, come home, go to bed. This routine has been repeating itself every weekday since I started my internship here in IPG, which sadly is ending real soon.

But I wish my routine is as simple as that. Let me fill you in with the deets in case you’re dying to know how amazing my days are. 😉

So, in the morning, after I wake up and get ready, I wake my brother up, or tell him his alarm is going off and it’s driving me crazy while he’s still fully asleep. But in return, he drives me to work.

I get to Society and I put on my jacket because only God knows why I can’t stand the cold here but almost everyone around me looks fine. And 10 minutes after that, I make myself into a human burrito with my blanket. When it’s 12pm, we’d go out for lunch. I’ve been introduced to more new places around this area within a month, than I have ever had since I moved to PJ 2 years ago. Thank you everyone in Society for having such good taste in food and bringing me along with y’all to lunch :’)

As an intern, I will admit that there are times where I do not have any task at hand and would kill time by watching YouTube videos for inspiration. But most days I will have something to occupy myself with, even though it may be some minor task, I feel accomplished and productive because at least I did something. Whenever I get to be a part of a discussion or brainstorming session, I get really pumped because I’m an intern, and I get to contribute something, maybe.

Outside of my day – to – day chores of crafting tweets and identifying trending topics, I also had the opportunity to take part in Society’s Puasa Bersama where we helped clean and restore an orphanage in Keramat.


Before applying for an internship, I was haunted by stories of interns being asked to fetch coffee for bosses, and doing things that generally wouldn’t enrich a person’s experience. But that isn’t even nearly the case here in Society. The warm and friendly team is like a family, and helped me through my internship with such ease and comfort.

The team sure loves their Nasi Lemak

Overall, it’s pretty great here, the people around me make it even more fun and enjoyable. I’ve realised that although I didn’t really process the things I’ve done or lessons I’ve learnt on a day-to-day basis, but now that I have come to the end of this internship, i feel that my short stint here has been so worth it and fulfilling.
