Shadow of life
Aku officially college dropout, kena buang sebab failed 1 paper. Instead sending me down the drain, sobbing and howling in despair; it got me around the world. Yeah, a ticket to see the world! Alhamdullilah…am glad that I actually failed because there’s a rainbow after the heavy rain.
Maybe tak ramai yang tak tahu that I fleed the country just before and after the news that I was officially sacked. Some people might say, bazir duit! But I see it as investment to my life, life is too short to worry! I used all my savings I had, every single dime I had was put out for my 1 month of fantastic journey!
Koh Phi Phi, Island of Emerald water
Banyak benda that I learned traveling and seeing the world. Things that you’ll never get in class. Things that are not in the book. They never teach you life skill, all they do is teach you knowledge.
Memang hidup ni susah, tu aku pon takkan tipu. Ada masa yang kau akan jatuh teruk, rasa nak bangun tu takkan akan mampu, but believe me, kau sebenarnya dilahirkan mampu untuk tempuhi apapun dugaan Tuhan berikan. Itu yang aku tahu after coming back!
The world is waiting for you
Jangan putus asa. bak kata Josh Gorban “Don’t give up, It’s just the weight of the world” . Semua benda ni bagi aku adalah ujian untuk uji kau, sama ada kau mampu bertahan atau tidak.
If He brings you into it, He will certainly bring you through it. Have faith in God, have faith in yourself, have faith in Life.
Kau dan aku dah sememangnya fated to be tested. Memang kekadang tu teramat lah berat, air mata tu berbaldi2 mengalir, cokelat cadbury habis sepuluh papan kau telan. Aku pernah berada kat tempat kau dan akan sentiasa ada. Percayalah, siapa tahu, Tuhan dah sediakan kau kebahagian in future.
20 hours train ride without aircond, halal food. Priceless!
Aku tahu this is not the end of my journey. Hidup aku jauh lagi. Doesn’t mean ko takda degree, you are screwed. Silap tu…
Believe me, you’ll find something greater in life. The magic that unfolds in front of you as you set yourself free. The world has a lot more to offer than job security, education, money or anything. Go out and see the world, let it capture you in its beauty. You’ll be surprised…
