Perhaps this will be my last entry for the year 2009. Wow, a year passes by like a blink of an eye. I have completed my one-year crash course KPLI training as a teacher and here I am about to be posted somewhere in Hulu Selangor. Pondering back, the year 2009 elevates me to a whole new world and teaches me more about life as it is.
Making a bold decision to ditch a comforting career and embarking an uncertain path was the beginning of this year. Alhamdulillah throughout this year, I’ve met remarkable people and I’ll never forget them. This year has been a crazy one; and a passionate one too. But of course, people come and go. Yet, the ones who are loyal remain in the heart because you know they care from their gestures and tokens of appreciations. I also will be leaving my 25th years of life though my facade still remain unscathed by the wrath of time. Getting older, different priority.
To make a transition from a private sector citizen to Government also was no easy task. Still, I embrace the fact I am now a Government civilian and my loyalty is to the organization I serve, Insya Allah. But of course, I speak my heart. I don’t intend to play hide-and-seek to deny any sloppiness I see along the way. Nonetheless, I guess along with the upcoming experiences, I shall be able to master the culture and the arts of becoming a Government civilian.
To my ex-pupils at SK Sultanah Asma (if any of you are reading this), Sir wishes a prosperous year ahead; to my other KPLI mates who are now scattered throughout Malaysia, I wish all the best and be sincere in whatever deeds we do; to my loved ones, thank you for being supportive and I’ve learned that if it is strong, it will not be shaken; and to myself, I wish a prosperous year 2010 in the school I am about to be allocated. It will be hard and uneasy journey but if you put your mind, passion and faith to it, you will do your classic cliche – “Come. See. Conquer.”
Never lose the dignity although you are tempted with luscious whispers. Be honest to yourself and Allah SWT will always protect you, Childlike. (,”)
