It was the day.
The day I have been waiting for since 2008.
I was alone.
But I didn't care.
I was there to celebrate.
I plastered a smile on my face.
I talked with people who stood next to me.
I just couldn't believe it.
I was alone.
But it didn't stir my feelings even a bit.
If the old me saw this,
She might steal a glance.
I felt carefree.
That's all that matter my dear friend.

The moment I decided to further my Master in TESL, life has changed completely ever since. Continuous assignments ~ piles and piles of unfinished workload ~ time management failed ~ less of entertainment ~ successfully maintain the eye bags ~ communication broke down~ and the list goes on and on!
I was like pulling my hair most of the time due to stress. Not only that my time spent with family and friends were limited but I had lack of sleep and rest. Plus, traveling at such distance from Perak to Bangi every single week without fail totally got on my nerve. Thank god that back then I had my used to be Boyfriend a.k.a Hubby lived in Subang. The desire to see him had driven me on course. I never skipped classes (well almost). :p
Unlike some brilliant and I must say lucky students, I had no scholarship. I used my own money for the traveling and study fees. So just imagine how I felt everytime the money drained out uncontrollably before the end of every month. It was totally SUCK!!
Well, I went with the flow. Semester after semester, I was able to stay motivated to complete my Master. I guess I have cried more than a thousand times. Nobody really understood what I had gone through in the past few years.
Now, everything has started to pay off. I'm glad that I dared enough to challenge myself up to this point. The end of this October 2012, I would be attending my second convocation!! Yeahhh!! I could say that it is going to be one of my best moments in life!
Thank you Hubby for always being there for me!! Thank you Mak and Abah for believe in me!! Thank you kakak for your never ending moral support. Thank you lil bro for your inspiration. Thank you aunts and uncles for your hospitality and support. I would not have any other place to go if you guys didn't allow me to sleepover at your houses. Thanks for everything!!
Now I AM FREE!!! Really hope that PHD cert will be in my hands soon. I'm still waiting for the opportunity to chase after it. Insyallah. May the force be with me.

Such a breathtaking view! This is the place where I brought Hubby for our second honeymoon. Last year he took me to Italy while he was having a two-week course. This year I had him tagged along while I was having my 4-day course. Sounds fair enough? haha..Not really I guess. Well... I couldn't afford to spend lotsa money in France but a French-themed village and hotel are far better than not going anywhere. Don't you agree?
[The truth is, she was about to close the house before she gave in to our beg] tsk-tsk-tsk
Look at the pic below. It was taken outside of the Japanese house. FYI, if it is considered normal to walk around in public places by wearing such cloth here in Malaysia, I would have worn it long long time ago. It is a good way to hide my spare tyres and love handles. hehe.
Playing hide and seek. :p
Konni Chi wa!!
My last day in Colmar Tropicale was spent on snapping pics with my new friends.
We were glad that we accepted the offer to attend the course. The hotel room is fine and the foods are tasty.
Hopefully in the near future, I would bring my family members to this place. How about you?
