bila berinteraksi dgn saudara mara, makcik2, soalan 'belajar dimana' sudah menjadi satu kebiasaan. namun yg membuatkan kami generasi muda berasa kurang senan apabila mereka mempersoalkan hala tuju yg kita ambil.
"kenapa x ambik pharmacy ke, dentistry ke? dgr kata pharmacy n dentistry bnyk buat duit skarang. drpd jd doktor tu, penat je lebih, duit sme je ngn pharmacist n dentist"
"kenapa Ireland? knape x uk? uk lg best blajar kt sne"
yg paling xleh blah "knpe nk blajar oversea? knape x blajo sini je? kt oversea tu punoh je, pelajar malaysia g sne sume balik dh rosak"
well, how should i respond to this? xnk la jwb lbih2, nnti kne cop as "budak ni bajet pndai, sombong"
most of those questions were answered with senyuman kelat. jarang nk jumpa adult yg memahami knpe kite pilih jalan tuju yg kite dah pilih skarang.
first thing first makcik, sy minat medik. sy x minat duit. kumpul duit bnyk2 nk bwk ke mane? nk bwk msuk kubur pon bkn bleh rasuah mungkar dan nakir. sy suka bantu org, especially org yg perlukan sy di saat getir. sy xkisah sy yg susah pon. sbb sukalah sy igtkn yg stiap bnde kite bt dlm dunia ni kite kene ikhlas walaupun bsuh pinggan org lain skali pon. klau bt keje pnt2, tp mulut duk mengeluh itu ini, celah mne la pahala nk smpai kt kita.
2nd, knape ireland? dah Allah nk hntr sy kt sini, rezeki sy kt sini, sapelah sy nk question Dia. lgpon bnyk faktor yg menyebabkn sy pilih Ireland. 1. sbb kt ireland bnyk school of medicine. 2. school of medicine kt ireland pon terkenal dgn reputasinya dlm bidang medik. 3. stiap uni ade kelebihan masing2. uni2 di uk terkenal dlm bidang engineering sbb teknologinya. uni di ireland plak terkenal ngn medik. dah sy amik medik, ireland la tmpt nye. logiknye xkn la diaorg nk sumbat course2 yg perform terbaik kt satu university?
the point here is, people will never be satisfied. they will always question us xtau lah sma ada nk challenge us or just to cure their curiosity. can u guys just accept and respect our choice? bkn nk stereotype ke ape cuma org2 tua ni gemar btul nk compare ank org itu dgn ank org ini. chill la makcik, stiap org ade kelebihan masing2. dah compare, pastu suka la pulak selidik prangai kami. ank pak mat baik, lemah lembut, ank pak ali ganas, x reti nk bwk borak. dah kalau kami jenis introvert nk bt cne makcik oi. dah kalau makcik2 sembang ngumpat org je keje, cne la kami nk join borak skali? opss...

well, how should i start?
hmm, i'm currently in Ireland, pursuing my study in Medicine. university? the oldest university in Dublin. just google up "the book of Kells" and u know it.
to be honest, i always ended up going somewhere i've never heard before.
after i survived my spm, i went to Kolej Mara Banting doing International Baccalaureate program.
i didnt know where the hell Kolej Mara Banting is and i didn't have any clue what the freaking hell is IB.
if u ask me what is IB, it's something u dont want to repeat ever! even if they give u billion bucks. it's a trap! wanna know what IB is, google it up and understanding the basic idea of IB will be enough to give u the mother of headache u could ever imagine. to explain IB is surely a pain in the u know what and i dont want to stress u guys out today. so u guys r safe - for now ;]
annndddd after finishing my IB, with "cukup-cukup makan" result, i managed to get myself into the university that people are afraid to talk about. Trinity College Dublin, there u go, now u know. =.='
why u ask? well i always dreamt of going to University College Dublin or maybe RCSI cuz those r the universities that most of people talk about. when i asked my senior-who was (and is still) studying in Dublin about Trinity College Dublin. He said "TCD? hell no, it's too hard to get in". he scared the hell out of me!
so i did a couple of research (most of them are images. lol) on the background of universities that my sponsor offered. forgot to tell, i got sponsorship from mara after some confusing sessions of interviews with various sponsorship organizations. ~honestly, alhamdulillah i got almost all of the sponsorship offers but i made my mind to choose MARA(next time i'll tell y). it was a hard decision, trust me.
apparently, i guess it IS hard to get into TCD, out of 150+ medical students who did IB at that time, only 10 of us made it to get in. and i am one of them. and i was totally confused and freaked out! i never did any homework or survey regarding TCD. so i googled up where on Earth is this TCD. n yeah, finally i'm here, a medical student of Trinity College Dublin.
i just finished my summer exam and now i am eager to go back to Malaysia this upcoming Jun!
miss ma family, friends and foods!! there u go, triple F! oh, here r some of the pics of me, or maybe scenery in Dublin! enjoy!
seriously, this is my first hodie ever
