MasterChef OZ

Who ever thought that watching a cooking competition can inspire you? I just watched the grand finale of the Master Chef Australia. I’ve been following the show since the beginning. Watching those guys cooking and baking, they’ve put up a great effort to cook such a wonderful dish. The most important thing is that, they showed enthusiasm, passion of doing the thing that they love the most. That reminds me to do the same. I was deeply touched when Callum said that his late father had once said to him,

“If you like to do something, show your passion to it. There’s no point of doing thing that you don’t like, because in the end you’ll be crying because of it”

I would like to take this opportunity to wish a great new year. May all of us have a prosperous and blissful year up ahead, InsyaAllah. Eat well, sleep well, study well, spend well, Ibadah well.

Good Guys Finish Last

It’s Normal. Saya Pernah Gagal dan Saya Okay.

Throughout my academic life I have faced many failure. When I was in kindergarten, I had once got D for my drawing and colouring. My best friend got an A with 3 stars and at that time I was damn jealous with him. He is a Chinese boy by the way, I used to call him Yu. I went back home and MAK showed me my sis’s drawings. After that I bought the ‘captain planet’ colouring book and practice colouring day and night. Second year of my sekolah tadika guess what, I’ve got an A with 4 stars. =D

Primary school again another failure in my UPSR penulisan Bahasa Melayu trial paper. We supposed to choose a topic from part A and write another essay for part B. Terlampau-pandai-sangat, I wrote 2 essays from part A and forgot about the part B. Duh!! =(

Secondary school. When I was in lower form, it took me sometimes to understand the concept of math. All of sudden all this terminology ‘anu’ ‘interger’ ‘x’ ‘y’ came up. WTH!!! Luckily I survived the PMR. Then form 4 another failure in add math and chemistry paper. During the school breaks in December, I have my own intensive study planned and Alhamdulillah my final year in SDAR was a success.

Doing IB, I was introduced with the class test system which till now I still don’t like. They said that the same system is implemented in most of the universities, 100% agree!!! Again I survived the 2 years International Baccalaureate Programme and now doing my MBBS in MMMC, Manipal.

What I’m trying to say here is, don’t be afraid of failing. It’s normal. Not just in academic but also in life. Facing so many phase of being a loser/failure during my 21 years of life, I try to accept them in a good way. That is a sign from God to test my faith and also to remind me that I have responsibilities.

And in the future when I have my own child inshaAllah, of course I'll be expecting them to do well in their study. But if they do fail, at least I know how to encourage them to work harder. They can't argue with me and say "what do you know about failure, you always did well in your exam!".

Tidak kira berapa kali kamu jatuh, apa yang paling penting adalah untuk bangkit semula dan kembali berjuang”

Her Birthday

Semalam adalah hari lahir emak yang ke . . . Sempat skype kejap je petang semalam, sebab lepas tu laptop hang. Emak pun tengah makan time tu. Hari sebelumnya, along dah ingatkan “esok birthday mak”. Mula-mula ingat macam ni, nak beli barang from e-bay then pos ke rumah sekali dengan kad ucapan *sweet habis*. Tapi bila nak tekan butang BUY IT NOW, teringat balik waktu kecik-kecik dulu.

Masa tu, nak dekat birthday mak jugak. Aku dah beli brooch, then tengok along punya hadiah macam lagi best je so aku pun tak nak kalah la kan *jahat habis*. Pergi la kedai nak cari barang lagi best nak bagi mak. Jumpa dah tapi mahal la pulak, duit tak cukup. Balik la rumah pi korek duit tabung. Still tak cukup lagi, dalam hati “mana nak cekau duit lagi ni?” Sekali teringat, ada banyak syiling dekat lampu meja yang ada laci. Tengah-tengah SERONOK kira duit, mak datang dari belakang, “Khairul, buat apa tu!!”. Oh kantoi sudah. Nak dijadikan cerita, aku pun cakap la nak beli barang untuk mak. Lepas tu mak cakap,

Mak tak kisah pasal hadiah, tak ada pun tak apa. Angah belajar je pandai-pandai dapat result bagus tu dah cukup untuk mak.”

Maka tak jadi la aku nak jadi sweet. Tapi plan lain tetap ada. So memandangkan next week pun nak start block exam, dan banyak lagi kena baca, kena hafal, kena serap betul-betul. 5 hari yang tinggal ni kena pulun habis-habis dengan harapan dapat bagi ‘hadiah’ dekat mak. =)
