It's Been So Long

Hello guys, it has been a while since I last updated my blog. Yes, approximately around two years hahaha. Idk, maybe cause people just don't blog anymore. Like seriously, none of my friends who blogged before, which 'inspired' me to blog as well, blog anymore. Maybe we are caught up in whatever we're doing. Since most of us are either graduated from university, or in final year of degree.

So what's up? Nothing much, I'm currently in my final year of Chemical Engineering as you guys might notice. I was about to start my third year in my last post, I think. So it's 2017. And I'm in my final semester already. That's three semesters before. Well, a lot has happened throughout these two years. Successfully finished my third year, and went through my internship at MPOB in Bangi.

I just wanna talk a bit about my internship. To be honest, 10 weeks seemed so short. I was dreading my life back then since I had no semester break since after internship, I had to enter my final year right away. But looking back, internship was amazing. I missed everything I did as an intern there. I kinda missed how I always arrived early, like around 7.20 am cause too afraid of getting caught in traffic.

I actually learned quite a lot from my intern, mostly through self learning, since I was in an R&D institution, so most things are self learned. My supervisor would give me tasks to study about his projects, which really suited my as an upcoming Chemical Engineer graduate where I had to deal with air pollution control strategies and wastewater treatment. Man it was fun when I get to visit palm oil mills to observe the POME treatment.

Twas a great experience, and I highly recommend to people who's looking for internship, try MPOB. Yes, most of the research officers are busy and hardly have time for you, but with a little bit of initiative, you can learn as much as that you ran out of pages to write in your final report cause its too much to handle. I learned quite a lot back then, and I am grateful for that.

So currently I am occupied with my two final year projects. One for Design Project and another is Research Project. My holidays is ending, and it's time to face reality next week. Hopefully, I can finish both successfully. Couple more subjects to finish before graduating. InshaAllah. So that would be all for this post. I hope I can blog consistently as I go through my final year.

That would be all. See you guys in my next post. Hopefully not in two years time.

College Application

It was just an ordinary day, just did my chores as always. Once I finished, I decided to just chill and play some FIFA matches when my phone buzzed. So I paused the match and checked out my phone. It was the college's Facebook page. It personal messaged me. Omg omg omg omg!

So I opened it, it asked me to check my application in MyUM. I was like, whyyyy. Ya Allah, is this it? So I synced my email, and there it is!

Alhamdulillah, my application is finally approved! I'm so relieved, I don't have to think about riding the train every morning or such. So gonna join activities so that I can stay for my final year as well. Let this be a lesson well learnt. 

So like obviously I accepted the offer duhh. Alhamdulillah again, my prayers every night since the day my application was at first rejected has been answered. Ya Allah, Alhamdullilah for this opportunity. I'm gonna make the best out of this InshaAllah.

See you guys in my next post. Probably about my results. Which is predicted to be out tomorrow. Last words, enjoy Ramadhan peeps! Make the best out of these last few days.

Semester Break

Similar to my previous holidays, cuti kali ini pun pishang dan mereput. Hahaha. Tapi sikit best la boleh bangun lambat, sebab takpayah jaga bae. Hiks. Agak seronok la, bangun lambat, buat chores mana yang patut, petang sambung mereput sampai berbuka. Kahkah. 

I am now waiting for two results before Raya InshaAllah. Satu result rayuan for Kolej, satu lagi result exam semester lepas. Cuakkk gilaaaa tunggu result kolej. Nak duduk kolej please. Ya Allah, please la semester depan dapat kolej lagi. Kalau dapat serius semester depan aku aktif balik, tak jadi macam second year dah. T_T

Result exam pulak, aku rasa InshaAllah okay.  Sebab paper haritu aku rasa macam boleh jawab. Fail tu tak la kot. Just nak score tu tak tau la. Tapi aku dah usaha, so tinggal doa dan tawakkal je. InshaAllah result ni keluar next week. Agak tak sabar actually nak tau. 

So dah prepare subjects nak ambil next sem. So semester depan maybe full 20 credits and the subjects I'm gonna take are HE, Law, Moral, Biochem, Modelling, Simulation, Lab Com II, Reaction II, and Particle Technology. Tak tahu la macam mana nak survive next semester kalau duduk rumah. Ya Allah, permudahkanlah permohonan Kolej hambaMu ini Ya Allah.

That is all I think, will find more ideas to write later.

Till then, Assalamualaikum.

End of Fourth Semester

Last post aku dekat sini masa nak mula Semester 4, hari ni aku post nak cakap yang aku dah habis Semester 4. Haha. Dah berapa bulan tak bukak blog usang ni. Alhamdulillah, Semester 4 tamat dengan lancar dan telah melabuhkan tirainya Rabu lalu dengan berakhirnya paper Chemical Process Safety.

Kali ni, final aku ada 5 paper je, so agak relaks berbanding semester-semester lepas. Tapi tak relaks mana pun sebab ada 3 paper 3 hari straight. So macam agak letih sebab dengan puasa, pastu kena study lagi. Tapi Alhamdulillah, berkat Ramadhan, dapat jawab semua exam dengan jayanya.

Rasa puas hati gila every time lepas exam, sebab mostly apa yang baca, yang buat latihan, semua masuk exam. Alhamdulillah. Again, berkat Ramadhan. So first paper TITAS, yang ni susah sikit haha. Tapi yang next that are Separation I, Numerical II, Mass Transfer dengan Safety went quite well.

So sekarang ni cuti until September. Agak pishang. Tapi kemas-kemas rumah sikit so boleh la. Takde la pishang sangat. Tak sabar nak tunggu results, of course, macam semester-semester lepas, habis je semester terus sibuk nak tahu results. Harap-harap dapat berita baik dari lecturers next week.

So tu je kot. Harap-harap blog ni aku rajin la isi sepanjang cuti ni.

Bye. Assalamualaikum.

New Semester, New Hope

So yeahh, going back to UM in few days time. Sad af. However, life must go on. I was actually bored during the start of the holidays. Probably because I was waiting for my results. After the results of my third semester was released, time moved so much faster.

And finally, it's the end of my five weeks holiday. I'm actually really sad right now. I feel like crying haha. Next semester's gonna be tough, taking eight subjects worthy of 19 credits.

So next semester I'm gonna be good friends with Ko-K, TITAS, Critical Reading, Numerical II, Safety, Separation I, Mass Transfer and Lab Com I.

Okay I hate the fact that I'm having my labs next semester. The only nice thing about it is I'm going to be able to experience all lab venues next semester (the workshop, ground floor lab and pilot lab). My first experiment will be Metal Arc Welding.

And gonna have my first oral session for welding in Week 2, so gonna have to study up on the topic by the weekend of Week 1. I'm hoping that everything will go smoothly. After the lab gonna be busy doing full lab report.

Well, that is all.

Scholarship Hunting

Over the past few years, after SPM and after my foundation studies, I've been scholarship hunting as to get financial aid for my studies. I went to countless (okay I'm exaggerating) interviews and also went through countless forms to fill in.

Alhamdulillah, today I'm continuing my studies with a scholarship and I'm happy with it.

So I remembered after SPM, I applied for three scholarships, they were PETRONAS, YTN and UEM.

I was offered the chance to attend the PETRONAS Eduquest in UTP that time, I applied to study Chemical Engineering in UTP if I'm not mistaken. I rejected the chance, since I thought UTP is so far from home. Come to think of it, it was simply childish. Haha, however, it's all in the past now.

I was also offered the chance to attend the YTN camp, however, again, I turned down the chance, since I don't want to further my studies in UNITEN. Because, I just don't want to haha.

I wasn't shortlisted for UEM however. I have no comment, and I don't really care since I didn't have any intention of going overseas anyways. Also, I wrote crap in the application form for the topic why I want to study engineering.

Then, after my foundation studies, I applied for a few scholarships namely MyBrainSc, MREPC and JPA scholarships.

Alhamdulillah, I excelled for MyBrainSc and was actually offered the scholarship on conditional base, I need to obtain a place in Chemistry, in any university. But I didn't unfortunately, as I had my heart set for Chemical Engineering, so yeah goodbye MyBrainSc.

Then, I attended MREPC scholarship's interview which was an invaluable experience. I was interviewed by the company's big shots. Like seriously, it was awesome. I was actually up there with those corporate people. I was interviewed for around 45 minutes, unfortunately, I wasn't qualified for the scholarship.

However, I loved the feeling of being able to actually go through a difficult interview, imagine being interviewed by the top people of the company. Mind you, it was really exhilarating. They were friendly, and I believed, from their tone of voices, I can tell they were impressed with my academical backgrounds. It wasn't my day back then.

Then lastly, I applied for JPA, I didn't get it the first time. So I emailed a formal letter of appeal, and Alhamdulillah, I got it the second time out.

I was quite frustrated at first when I didn't get the JPA scholarship since almost all of my classmates obtained it. I remembered clearly the first day of the second semester when a friend of mine told me that the appeal's results were out, just when I was going to apply for Shell using my first semester's results, Alhamdulillah, my appeal was successful.

And for that, I am forever grateful. Alhamdulillah.

Experience, the one thing that made me who I am today. Alhamdulillah.

I absolutely cherish my week experience in SAS, as it taught me to appreciate my family more. Each and every one of them.

I cherish the friendships I had in school. I love how we are still in touch with each other until today. InshaAllah, I want to organize a reunion one day. A big one.

I cherish the push my teachers gave me in school in Form 5. Without that, I won't be able to get a B for my co-curriculum. And with that being, I may not be where I am today.

I cherish my bffs in PASUM. Love them to bits. I really had the time of my life with them. They were my pillar of strength when I was in my foundation.

I cherish my teachers in school, for building the foundation which I stand on today. Without the strong foundation, I would crumble anytime.

I cherish the people around me. The ones supporting me through ups and downs.

To that I say.
