MASCouch

Salam,

Inisiatif baru yang aku rasakan berpatutan untuk diketengahkan. Walaupun ini idea cedukan, tetapi apabila dimurnikan kepada kumpulan sasaran yang betul in shaa Allah ianya akan memberi manfaat. Idea asal yang dikemukakan sahabat aku ini ada relevannya. Setiap kali musim cuti, perancangan untuk melancong akan direcanakan. Namun tempat tinggal atau penempatan sementara sering menjadi masalah. Tambahan pula kos sewaan hotel yang agak tinggi di negara ini membuatkan ramai yang mematikan niat untuk berjalan-jalan.

Selain menumpang berehat, inisiatif ini dapat menjadi platform alternatif untuk pelajar berkenalan dan bertukar-tukar pengalaman hidup di negara orang. Jika sebelum ini perkenalan hanya terhad kepada laman  sosial dan program-program tertentu sahaja. Tapi dengan inisiatif ini, pelajar dapat mengeratkan lagi hubungan dengan pelajar lain dan bersemuka terus dengan mereka.

Konsep sama yang diaplikasikan oleh rata-rata pelancong berkonsepkan 'backpacking', tapi inisiatif ini lebih memfokuskan kepada interaksi pelajar Malaysia di Australia. Dengan garis panduan yang ketat dan batasan-batasan penting yang telah ditetapkan, para pelajar dapat menikmati suasana yang lebih selesa ketika melancong di samping dapat menjimatkan kos.

Walau bagimanapun, masih banyak lagi perincian penting yang perlu diteliti agar inisiatif ini tidak diambil kesempatan oleh pihak-pihak tertentu. Terutamanya isu pergaulan jantina dan perlakuan sosial. Bimbang juga pengelola yang menanggung dosa nanti.
