The title of this post was inspired by a quote from the movie 'Finding Nemo' which is "JUST KEEP SWIMMING". I don't know why but I found it so inspiring and the message was clear!
Because I went to the other side of the sea which is Sarawak ahahaaha. hekelehhh bukan pi overseas ponnn but yaaa why not be excited for every new things that happen in our life isn't it hahaha

Today was my first day on flight. I have never been on flight because I had no reason to take it. But this time I have a very huge responsibility and reason to be flying and go outside of Peninsula hehe. Yeah because I’m going to UNIMAS to further my studies in Degree of Social Work Studies.
Me, my parents, cousin, auntie headed to KLIA from Shah Alam (my aunt’s house). It took about 40 minutes to get there and about 7.40 a.m we arrived at KLIA. I was lucky that I have already checked in through Malindo website so I did not have to check in at the Malindo counter because the queue was very long! So I made a beeline to luggage check in. Oh geeze I forgot to put on luggage cover to my luggage so I put it on quickly because there are some people behind me. Yeah because of it I did not button it up T_T
Frankly speaking, I am quite proud of my self at this moment because I almost made it to my first venture on flight and I was all alone hehehheh. I was waiting at the waiting terminal for my flight departed at 9.40 a.m. Because I was wearing baju kurung, a pakcik and her wife together with her daughter which age around me asked me “Adik ni nak ke unimas kan, sama lah dengan anak pakcik ni ha”. I was like “ohh ye ke” then the pakcik asked again “kamu sorang ke”. Me- “haah hehe” Pakcik “ayah kamu bagi kamu pergi sorang?”Me”eh takpe.Dia bagi, saya pon ok je”
At that moment, I was not feeling sad. I am more to proud of myself because yeah firstly, my father allowed me to go and register at unimas all by myself because he believed that I could do so. I’m already her big girl, not the little princess anymore hehhe. It’s not that I’m saying everyone who was sent by their parents are still little girls or what. I just want myself to always find the goodness and positive side of what our parents have decided because they know best. There are reasons too why they didn’t follow me to Sarawak. Firstly, my elder sister will also be registering for her Master in UiTM Shah Alam on the same day, she needed to settle a lot of things. Then, my family are preparing for my eldest sister’s wedding. We need to be thrifty on money expenses at the moment. My father said the whole family will come to visit me another time. I hope that was true! ehehheh
An announcement was made to call out all the passengers. Now I’m getting excited. But quite empty at heart actually haha. So I was on the plane, my seat was beside the window (capturing photos of the sky and a the plane’s wing will be great) Beside me was a pakcik who slept all the time haha and only awake when our snack arrived.
While the plane was moving and about to fly on the sky, I did not feel anything except when it is just right on the track to fly, my favourite song was played; Flashlight by Jessie J. Awww it felt like a spirit came from nowhere went straight into my heart. My heart and lips sync with the music and the beautiful lyrics. To my surprise, I burst into tears (a bit).
When tomorrow comes
I’ll be on my own
Feeling frightened of
The things that I don’t know
When tomorrow comes
And though the road is long
I look up to the sky
And in the dark I found, lost hope that I won’t fly
And I sing along, I sing along, and I sing along
We all know the feeling of failure. We all have felt how it was to be different from others. We all had or are falling apart and still trying to stand up and collect broken pieces of us. We thought we could never make it to where we are right now but eventually we made it through because we are stronger than what we think we are and Allah also knows that every test He gives us are all not beyond our capability. Therefore, looking back at all the things I could not achieve before made me realized that Allah knows best and all the things I’ve had before lead me to somewhere I have never thought of. I hope nothing but the best in my academic achievement and also best experience that I could ever have. Aminn..
(Still on the plane)
I felt asleep for a while like a few minutes because the movies on the screen were errr nothing attracted me. The rest of the time I just looked out of the window and edited some photos using VSCO app on my phone(my hobby).
An announcement was made again by the flight attendant. The passengers began to disembark the plane. Yeahh I made it to Kuching! Alhamdulillah..
There goes how my journey which I conclude in all my deep thoughts to starting a new phase in my life. Alhamdulillah, orientation week has already ended 2 weeks ago and classes also have already started since a week ago. I managed to understand how should I arrange my schedule here, classes may not be as packed as how it was in matriculation back then but of course it is much intense here with assignments, presentations and so many more, I’ve got to evaluate time better and be mentally & physically fit! Wohaaaa
