This New Year 2009 marks a new beginning for me in a whole new way; my life and my career. I’m to reside here in this provincial Jitra; to begin with; and I’m to enrol into the Maktab a.k.a. Education Academy IPDA this coming 12th January 2009 as well (Insya Allah). To ponder about; life is so crazy that you can’t help but to be amazed and in awe with it. Who would ever thought that MY FIRST JOB WAS A BANKER? Hehhe… If someone were to tell me that 10 years ago, I would be like ROLLING ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING – I hate mathematics; and to picture me doing a banking? Hhaha~ But it was a nice expereince. I’ve met a lot of remarkable people and useful experience as well as sharpening my humane- interpersonal skills. Now that I’m soon to be a teacher, I’ve already set my new goal and to be very sincere in imparting knowledge to the younger generations.
Anyway, congratulations to Muzem, my friend who was allocated to Sepang, Selangor to begin his teaching tenure; it’s definitely a remote and rural area; honestly I’m kinda anxious to know that other few acquaintances like Ziyadi was posted in sarawak and according to the message SMS he sent to Muzem; the school was so remote/ secluded that he had to take 3 HOURS BOAT TRIP and 4 HOURS TRANSPORTATION VIA FOR-WHEEL DRIVE CAR !!! Wow, I have to say that is challenging and I’m kinda nervouis to know that. This world is definitely a far cry from the lavish corporate banking world I left. Do I have any regret? Too early to decide that; but this is the path I choose. Insya Allah, I believe there will be a Qaramah (blessings in disguise). For me, teacher is a career; not a job like my banker days. I’d hope Allah SWT will bless me throughout this endeavor to become a full-fledged teacher. Amin.
The green patch is Palestine. The white patch is Israel. Gradually from 1940s to now, the territories of both countries inter-changed.
On a serious note, I’m angry and dissapointed with what is happening at Gaza Peninsular! Israel with all its diplomatic influence has been terrorizing Palestinians mercilessly; and the so-called police of the world- USA without compassion bestows the blessing!!!! Now, don’t you wonder why citizen of the world are itching to terrorize America??! The September Eleventh (9/11) Attack was one of the smithereens caused by the ruthless inconsideration! My prayer as a Moslem and a human goes to those who are affected by the Israelites terrorism; irregardless whether they are Palestinians or Israelites. I always believe that my blog is my own medium to express my thoughts. Not only about myself or my life or what I feel, but also about the world and how I perceive that. This issue is important for me to voice out and I’m glad that I do have the power to say what I want here and to make people at least take a second to ponder on what I’ve written. It feels good to speak for others; a refreshing changes from being selfish; that is speaking about merely yourself.
As for my personal struggle, there is a battle I have to face right here in this provincial Jitra. Erm, I need not to elaborate it. Cukuplah kejadian yang terjadi pagi tadi dijadikan sebagai perencah pembuka drama di Jitra. I’ve SMS-ed a few friends (Kat, Naz, Muzem, Khirwan, and Kakak!!) to siphon out that. Well, I’m lucky to have parents who have quite sense of humor and don’t really take things seriously; Mak said this happens because most of these people are cooped in the area; never venture out to see the world thus their mind horizon is narrowed. These people see the world as they are, not as it is (taken from dialogue in “Anna & the King”). Alhamdulillah I have very good parents and sister. They are the pillars when I’m down. They love me for who I am and no other pretence. I sincerely appreciate that. *tsk*
Can you see moustache there? YES, I got misai la!!!!! (I’m not taking seriously. Sometimes making fool of yourself is alleviating. Don’t be too restrained. Only when people cross the LINE, that you have to retaliate. Other than that, I guess… CHILL.)
