Journey in Pre-TESL ; Part 7



Alhamdulillah. We are done with our final exam! and we are done with our foundation.

Freedom? Yes, we are now free from assignments, tests, tasks and the campus rules! But that's only temporary. We will further in under-graduate program by September. But still, we have about five months of free time :)

We are done with our foundation. May 30th, 2011 until March 21st, 2012. All I can say after going through this foundation year is, Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah. Thank you Allah for giving me the chance to experience my foundation year in UiTM Lendu. I have met a lot of cool people, made friends with them, experience new things and became a new person.

What an experience I had to get to this course, Foundation in TESL.
I missed the interview in JB, got the interview at INTEC, being late on the first day for the first class (the last one to come into the class, fyi) and totally homesick on the first week (I even considered to change course). That doesn't really sound like a good start, does it?
But alhamdulillah, my foundation year ends smoothly and sweetly :)

Getting in UiTM, I got to see the reasons why Allah had tested me with difficulties in my life before (school life, n the tunggu result SPM phase). He wanted me to be prepared with life in UiTM. and with the difficulties I faced in UiTM, He wanted me to be prepared for later. Alhamdulillah, thanks Allah.

Dear my fellow TESLian foundation friends,
Thank you for being with me all the way from the beginning until the end of this journey. For giving cooperation, for lending a helping hand, lending your ears to lots of ramblings of mine, lending your mouth for soothing words and mood-lifter, etc.
Thanks for all the memories you've made with me. Insya-Allah, those memories will be kept forever.
Remember, we will always inspire and never expire ;)
May Allah bless all of you.

Strive and struggle



(وَٱلَّذِينَ جَـٰهَدُواْ فِينَا لَنَہۡدِيَنَّہُمۡ سُبُلَنَا‌ۚ وَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَمَعَ ٱلۡمُحۡسِنِينَ (٦٩

As for those who strive in Us, We surely guide them to Our paths, and lo! Allah is with the good. (69)

Dan orang-orang yang berjihad untuk (mencari keridhaan) Kami, benar-benar akan Kami tunjukkan kepada mereka jalan-jalan Kami. Dan sesungguhnya Allah benar-benar beserta orang-orang yang berbuat baik. (69)

[ Al-Ankabut, 29: 69]

So don't worry. Because Allah is with you :)

P/S: Only 2 final exam papers left! Writing (Saturday) and CTU (next Tuesday). Rabbuna yusahhil!

Journey in Pre-TESL ; Part 6


Salam :)

We almost reach the end of our foundation year.

So far, I think my journey here is not that bad. It's cool. I've learned a lot. A lot. Seriously.
I have met a lot of wonderful people here. I have experienced a lot of things here. A lot of first times, I can say. and a lot more wonderful things.

Allow me to throw things randomly.

Yummy! :D
RM 1.50 , purchased at Dewan Bentara

I love this ice-cream very much. A very good stress-reliever on a hot day. It makes me cooler. heh heh. 'cause I am cool. heh heh.

While I was practising on my informative speech one day, suddenly someone knocked on my room's door. It was my next-door neighbour, Zoey. She gave me the flower above. How sweet of her :)). Somehow, it cheered me a bit. Alhamdulillah. Thanks, Zoey :)

Left; Surau. Right; Dewan Bentara (cafe)

That day, I just got back from buying dinner. It actually rained a bit before that. As I walked to my room, I stared at the sky (I've always looked at the sky whenever I walked outside). The rain had stopped. The sun shone a bit. and I saw the rainbow. It was very beautiful, subhanallah.

One thing I like about my room is that, the view from the window is, magnificent. Beautiful. and I can see the surau from afar. I can actually see if there are a lot of people in the surau or not.

Inside my literature book. Still cannot erase the old habit. Scribbling.

We are done with our syllabus. Alhamdulillah. Now, we are only revising on what we've learned since last November. Wow. It's March already. Time flew so fast.
Actually, we are having our study week. We are going to sit for our final exam next week. Eh! Next week!

Semangat dah print exam slip

I don't know. I feel nervous to sit for this exam. *duh, anyone who's gonna sit for exam would feel the same.* I just hope that I will do better. Be a lot more hardworking. More enthusiastic. Smarter. More organized. Cooler. Get my intuition / niat right. Lillahi ta'ala. Insya-Allah. Amiin.

The final examination for all TESL Foundation students will be on 12th of March until 20th March 2012. We are going to sit for 6 papers; Reading, Listening & Speaking, Grammar, Literature, Writing and CTU. Please do pray for all of us. That we'll succeed successfully and that all our efforts will be blessed. Amiin.
hihi. thanks.

I am going to miss a lot of things here. My classmates, old and new. My lecturers. My seniors. My usrah-mates. My friends. My room. My daily student routine. The library. The cafes. heysh.

For the time being, just struggle, do the best that we could, and appreciate the moments we have here now. Just a few days left. and the clock never stops ticking.

Alhamdulillah for everything :)
and astaghfirullah for every sins.
May Allah bless us.
