If you're sure that there's no incentive for you to stay then of course, just start interviewing and once you have an official offer, plan an exit from your old job. Don't worry too much about it, there's always a better job out there where you'll eventually find your passion.
Thanks for the info. its a contract job. the only incentive i get is a bonus if i completed the 1 year contract. Its going to be 2 months soon and i still think its not a suitable job for me. I tried to give it a shot, but even closing to 2 months, i still think its not the job for me.

"You think your experience so useful?" At least its practical and related experience that can bring values to a company

"1 Degree always better than 10 year experience." You disgust me. Its like telling your boss "BOSS! You should disguard your experiences employee who can bring in revenue and use me instead who got no experiences, require training, gain practical experiences first before I can bring in revenue, BECAUSE I HAVE A DEGREE."

People like you always prove that I was right to outperform degree holder, because I always prove it's what value that brings to the table, rather than just a piece of paper.
Then why I as degree holder when I join a MNC I get to promote to E6 from E5 but Dip holder only promote from E4 and rarely? In MNC, we also structure our promotion by paper qualification. Because Your 10 year experience is nothing compared to a degree! Please lah don't tell me how good your performance is or bring in how many revenue. Revenue is overrated lah, don't be lazy to and get a degree and you can also promote like us to E6.

I have received other calls for interviews while i was working at the mnc but i reject it as it will probably be the similar type of job. Therefore, i want to go for something im passionate about.

That is because you are brainwashed by the "passion" bullshit America was sending out in the 90s. The "Dawn of the New Age Thinking" or "The Secret" and all that nonsense. Look around research papers about passion and success and the results are roughly the same. Being passionate about the job has very little correlation with your success at the job. Only a few miserable percent of people found success with their passions. There are a few reasons.

1. Passion is fluid. You may love your job this week, but hate it next week.
2. People who follow their passion tend to choose jobs with high failure rates. For example, musicians or fashion designers, etc...
3. No correlation between passion and competence. Just because you like to wear brand clothes does not mean you can design and make them.

Findings actually noted that people at the top of their game tend to find success first, then came their passion for their job. So are you able to go through the grind, and learn the skillsets that edges you ahead of your peers? If not, anywhere you go, it will be the same, you lose passion and then want to leave.

I know someone who was retrenched while fighting cancer. Was willing to get another job that was a paycut to make ends meet. WFH wasn't even on the table. His plight makes you sound like a piece of crap.
