To my family and friends,
Thank you for your love, encouragement and confidence in me.
Such words flashed on the big screen of MMU Cyberjaya Tun Chancellor Hall on 23rd August 2014 as she took her own sweet time, with small baby steps, headed towards the Pro Chancellor who was holding her scroll patiently waiting for her. She enjoyed the few seconds of fame as the camera followed her pace. Almost tripped due to the uneven carpet on stage. Nonetheless, she faked a smile and graced the red carpet. As she walks down the stage, she searched aimlessly for her parents in the crowd of thousands. Hoping to see them smiling and telling her that they’re proud of her accomplishment.
Sitting at her seat, looking at her friends, one by one walking up on the stage receiving their scroll made her did some reflections on the five years in uni. Thinking how she had transformed from an 18 years old girl who is so vulnerable and uncertain of almost everything to now a 23 years old accounting graduate who had experienced different kind of emotions and matured from them. Once everyone is done with the walk of fame, a video was played where students expressed their gratitude towards their parents. She could not understand how the rest can just sit still and watch the vid without portraying any expression. She must be one emotional kid. Trying to hold on to her tears throughout the ceremony. Truly grateful to the One above, and the rest.
Once she came out from the hall, it was drizzling and then a sudden heavy downpour! How depressing. Oh well, happy tears from heaven lol. Didn’t get to take pictures with most of her course mates as it was insanely havoc on that day. Nonetheless, she deeply appreciates her fellow CFers who came all the way to celebrate this joyous occasion with her and other graduates! Oh how she will miss the Christian support that she had back in Malacca.
This might be a never ending post.
Cutting it short, thank you and thank you were the only words she was uttering again and again to God, her dearest family, course mates, friends, lecturers and the university for every given opportunity. Now with this convocation hangover, she is preparing for another chapter of adventure. One where she has to start from scratch again, alone, in a foreign land. She acts as if she is ready and excited to leave her comfort zone, the truth is, she shivers each time she thinks about it but at the same time keeping the promise close to her heart. The promise that God will never leave her nor forsake her.
"Please keep me in prayers, stay in touch, continue to update each other about life and how God has been real to you." She wrote, in most of her farewell messages.
