11 October 2023.
Majlis Sanjungan Budi
(Long Service Award Ceremony)
I can still remember the purple colored ‘baju kurung’ that I wore, and two of the questions asked.
“What are you doing now?”
My answer was “Petik anggur” (doing nothing), then I said “Saya belum bekerja” (I am not working yet).
Then a Professor asked me, “When do you plan to get a PhD?”
Thinking…I ‘jumped’ into the Academia World with only one mission to teach, to develop the minds of the younger generations.
I never knew that I will need to do Master and PhD degree.
I just calculated and guess with the answer “5 years”.
The Professor replied,” That is too long!”
Waited for about 2 months, then received a call that I got the job as a Tutor, to be exact, I reported duty on the 16th October 2000.
There is too much story to tell…
Alhamdulillah for the plan Allah has set for me. Time flies too fast!
Today I am here for the Anugerah Jasa Bakti (an award of 20 years service).
May ALLAH bless us with HIS rahmah to live the life In the Name of ALLAH, for Mankind.
