SPM Result

How could I forgot to share about this? My goodness! Sorry :/

For those of you who don't know what SPM means, it stands for Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia. It's a national exam for all Form 5 students (17 years old) and your result will determine your next college or university. Sort of like the SAT test but a bit different.

I struggled a lot last year. I failed so many times on my History. I feel like I have no hope to even pass on my History so I struggled. Also, I had to take a tuition class in town for Maths. I don't always fail in my Maths but it's either C or D. How pathetic right? But then I learned something throughout the year. It's not about struggling to memorise everything and read my textbooks page by page. NO! It's all about the techniques on answering the examination and praise God, the SPM trial I got all credits! But only two A's. 

Two months before SPM started, I deactivated my Facebook account. It was all because of my former boyfriend, Titon. He motivated me a lot. So I studied and for me personally, I think I have done my best. I even woke up at 2 a.m. the day before the History test was coming. I have never studied early in the morning! Never before in my life I have done that.

I've been through that last year. It was hard but like I said, it's my best and I couldn't do better. 
So on the 23rd March last Thursday, the results were finally out. I feel like the results were out so fast since it has been off my mind for three months in PLKN. I was nervous. I went to school and the results were at my teacher's hand but I still stood still there with my friend, Ququ because we weren't ready. Then, I stopped thinking and sat in front of my teacher. 

I got my result and I was overjoyed! 
My target was actually 7A's but I'm happy with this anyway! 5A's?? Who would've guess that I would get 5A's!? Oh, by the way, Dad bought me a smartphone for this! Ahh! It's a cheap one but who cares? It's Android! Woo-hoo!

I posted this photo below on Facebook and I got 105 likes.. It's the first time for me to get so many likes..!
Thanks to everyone who congratulates me. Thank you to Mama who supported me through thick and thin and thanks to Daddy who believed that I could do it even when he was sick at the hospital. Thank you to all the moral supports and prayers. I am so blessed with you guys, my families and my friends and also my former boyfriend, Titon :) But above all, I want to thank God for everything. Without God, I wouldn't get this result!

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

The Day I Went Out With My PLKN Friends

Yesterday was the day my friends from PLKN and I went to Centre Point(CP) and hung out together. Man, it took back all the three months memories when I saw each of them! I missed it so much! During our outing, we ran into a lot of our friends from PLKN. Not two or three people but I think it's more than ten! I even met my "Datuk K", Alek! Hahaha! Let me explain. I played the role of Datuk Siti Nurhaliza in one of the classes at PLKN and Alek played the role of Datuk K. Hahah! He was like, "Siti Nurhaliza!" and I was like, "Datuk K!" I missed that guy! Hahah!! How crazy is that!? I had a really good time though :)

But what I really want to share is I realised something when we sat down at McDonald's and we had this talk. Lola, Bibie(Lola's friend and she's not from PLKN), Jijie and I were talking about the times we had on PLKN and we laughed a lot. And then Jijie started to say, "Kalau bukan pasal PLKN, kita semua tiada di sini kan?"  (If it wasn't for PLKN, we wouldn't be here, right?) Then I started to think.. My goodness, she's right. If it wasn't for PLKN, I would never meet them. These bunch of wonderful people....from different backgrounds, personalities and talents. I feel so blessed to not only meet them but to know each and everyone of them personally. They have brought me up when I was down and I have done the same thing for them. Sometimes, I didn't realised what I said to them have some sort of impact in themselves until one of them said thank you for the all the words of encouragement that I have given which I don't remember saying. I feel appreciated so much.

After that, when Jijie told us how much she changed after PLKN that she didn't even raised her voice to her father.When she was angry, she stated to her father why she was angry in a very calm yet in a serious tone where before this, she swore and cuss to him a lot. Cussing to her own father? Yes, she has changed. Same goes to me. Before this, I barely appreciated my own mother. I don't even realised how tiring it is to clean the house until I experienced her situation by cleaning the dorm every single day. Most of the time I will get so sweaty even my bra get soaked with all the sweats. Besides that, I learned from one of the classes that whenever a child raised their voice to their mother, their mother will be broken hearted. Why? Because she will feel under appreciated. After all, who would want to get a response from your child like that since you have suffered hours of the pain of giving birth? Ahh... the pain of giving birth. I've been told this since I was in school but it never really gets in the core of me until one of the classes in PLKN. I don't know why but I noticed that the teachers there have some sort of talent to really connect with us, the teenagers. I shared this with Jijie, Lola and Bibie. Then Lola said she also loves her family more now. I feel like, wow! Did PLKN really taught all of us these things? Even our Commandant said that it always happens when PLKN ended, the PLKN camp will receive countless calls from parents saying thank you and asking what did they teach their children there.

And for that, I am really grateful to God for planning great things for me. PLKN is the most amazing that has happened in my life so far. I wonder what's next for me in my life?

From all the different kinds of people that I have met there, it's like I have seen a glimpse of the world.

Finally Home From Program Latihan Khidmat Negara (PLKN)

Time flies too fast! My goodness! It feels like it was just yesterday that I entered PLKN! As you all may know from my previous post (the last part of the list), I actually got chosen for PLKN which actually means National Service Programme in English. Remember when I said that I hate the fact that I got chosen? It all changed when I got there. As a matter a fact, I am certainly grateful that I got chosen. I am so happy that I am one of the most blessed people to have experienced three amazing months of a lifetime. 
     I remember the first day I got there. I was like, "Screw this! Screw that! I hate this! I hate everyone," in my mind. I also remember to decide that I was going to keep my anger until the end of PLKN. But do you know what happened the first night I was there? One of our teachers was going to show us a video and I was thinking, "Whatever. I'm not gonna influenced by anything you're gonna show me now. I've made up my mind that I hate it here. What are you gonna show us, huh? Something patriotic about the country?" I remember the teacher said, "I know somne of you came here feeling forced but I want you to see this first." "Whatever," I mentally responded her. But then, as the video started.. I saw a guy with no legs and no arms being a goalkeeper.. And another guy scored a goal and the goalkeeper said, "Wait! I wasn't ready!" I already saw that video before and I know who that guy is.. He is one of my inspirations to live. It's NICK VUJICIC. You can see the video below.
     I was trying to pull myself together not to cry during the video was played. It made me realised one thing. I can either choose to be angry with my situation until the rest of PLKN or I can accept the fact that I was there and go along with it. Nick can choose to be angry with his life and stay mad at God and say "I wish I had arms and legs." but he chose to accept his situation and be thankful. Just watch the video, you'll get what I mean.

So that's the story how I finally accepted the fact that I got chosen.

    Anyway, three months of experiences are too many to post here. To sum it up, this programme has build up my confidence and helped me to conquer my fears.. Especially heights. I used to be really afraid of heights. I conquered my fear when I did the "flying fox" activity. Well, maybe I still have a liiiiitle phobia on heights but before this it's much more worse. Heh. Besides that, I get to talk on a stage in front of hundreds of people and also get a chance to sing karaoke during Family's Day! 

I'll post more about my experience in PLKN soon when I have time, alright?
