Today, I m trying my very best to write in English 🙂
Basically, I can write but my confidence level is not very high because I am just afraid of making mistakes especially in grammar. That is my biggest weakness and I admit it 😀
During my primary school, I used to be a top student especially in academic. Nothing to be proud of because the school is very small. We only have one class for every standard so that make six classes in the school. In every class there were only about 30 to 40 students.
Since i m so smart 😀, I’ve been offered to a boarding school which I never heard before (I am quite a frog under the coconut shell). I thought of not going as it is a all girls’ school (hehe) but well, i still have to. I got cultural shock once arrived there and to make it a little bit dramatic, on the 1st night I have to sleep at sick bay because of high fever. The sick bay is nearby the old Gurkha soldiers’ grave and it was very quiet at night. (scary dowhh.. can’t sleep the whole night!).
There are 4 classes for form 1 to 3. During English classes, we have to change class because they divide it into different set according to your English level. I was in set five out of five. (Not so smart anymore, eh.. hehe).
Did I mentioned my father was an English teacher? (He already retired). He always keep on asking us (my brother and I) to speak in English at home but I think we are too ‘pemalu’ and feel weird to do so. After SPM he encouraged me to further study in TESL. I was disagreed as in my head I always thought that after graduated I only have one choice which is to be a teacher. (I am worst in public speaking and I don’t think I will be a good teacher).
Well, I just follow my heart at that time. Exploring other things and end up I am not be what I think I would be.
I believe everything happened for a reason. So, I never regret with my life.
Thank you very much, ya Allah.. for all your mercy and I am so grateful with what I have. Alhamdulillah…..

Moral of my story : Don’t be so ‘pemalu tak bertempat’ and parents know the best!
