Alhamdulillah, segala puji-pujian hanya layak bagiNya! Thanx Allah, for everything You gave me all this while.
On the 14th of September, my journey has been continued to face a new unexpectable 'world' of mine. Living in the UK is something that has never come into thoughts even once in my life, until i 'involve' in this TESL course in Year 2007. Yet, i wasn't in the comfort zone of thinking about furthering my studies abroad, until the Final Examinations results were informed. Only one thing which always remains in my heart and mind, that Allah knows the best for me. Whatever happens, i must accept it.And now, alhamdulillah! I made it, n of cos, with the help from You, My Lord! Thank You..
A new journey has already begun and of all many things I should have been prepared with is a ready-to-face-a-new-enviroment mentality. Being in the new minority group of Muslims in Canterbury is sort of challenging- with no seniors in such a white-concentrated area. However, i do feel lucky since our place is not too far from London, where we can see many Malaysian faces. Tell u what, u wud be extremely happy n excited when u meet any Malaysian in your new not-used-to-live place, though they are the people whom u never have met and known before. Likewise what had happened to me n some frens on the day we arrived at the London Heathrow Airport. It's quite an exciting shock to have heard someone (working at the airport) asking us something in Malay! Then only I realise how I love Malaysia n its people~
"You brought the rain from Malaysia!"
That was what our new lecturer John said since the time we arrived at our university halls, it's raining quite heavily and the same happened on the second day. Yearh John, we are proud, anyway, to bring that souvenir from Malaysia!hehe~ Something that we all must adapt with is the weather and climate in Canterbury. The air is too cold for us though it's only in the end of summer! and the wind even can make us frozen! (exaggeration.hehe) Oh Allah, how great You are of creating all these! Alhamdulillah, 'ala kulli haal..
Alhamdulillah. I start to fall in love with my new place. It's not too far from the city centre and we can only get there by foot! and a seven-minute walk (approximately) can bring us to a supermaket where we can get many things there- Halal British Chicken, curry leaves and even the ginger! Alhamdulillah..
That's enough of sharing a little with u..Looking forward to spend gud time with academic as well as social needs here. Pray for me and frens here.
"Ya Allah, kuatkan hati kami semua. Tetapkanlah kami pada jalanMu yang lurus..Amin.."
p/s : to my family, not to worry coz I'm just fine here- gud tutors, gud frens, cosy home & safe city. InsyaAllah. Do pray! (^_^)
