Let me share with you about another local topic. Two friends meet on the street and one says to the other: “I’m currently looking for a job. Got any lubangs?

Sounds familiar? Lubang is a Malay word for hole. Nowadays, you heard it everywhere.

The way I see it, its amazing how we seek opportunities in holes. Its not like how we aimed to achieve our goals. Its like treasure been hidden in the most unsuspected locations. Give a dog a bone, and it will happily dig a hole in the garden to hide it. From here, under the same category were ants, squirrels, moles or mice and any type of rodents. Talk about a rat race indeed!

Apart from that, Lubang can also represent connections or contacts, even tunnels that give an entry that stretches till the end. Also, came about to know when a concerned parent seeks the assistance of some eminent person when comes to admit his child into a good school. Wow! Imagine the holes of rings in a chain!

However, it doesn’t have to be necessarily that holes can offer opportunities. Imagine yourself been caught in a tight situations. That’s when you will need some escape route. From there, you looked for a Lubang as the way out.

There’s also, interestingly, when someone pecah lubang (break a hole), he or she is said to have let the cat out of the bag!

Sounds familiar to you?
