And 2017 is coming to an end, time flies, really really flies! Anyway, this year has been a great year, full of ups and downs! Twas a challenging year indeed.
-My contract for RA ended after a year. Twas a good time and experience working under my SV, who guided me so much in my thesis. Joined CM's FPR (Family Planning Retreat) for the first time, although the whole camp was in Mandarin, but I enjoyed it. It was held at GSBA (my favourite beach)
-Went to visit Li Wen in Tampin (spent 2 days 1 night at her place), visited few places and took many great shots of pics! then, headed home for CNY and short sem break. Sent Vian off to Aussie for 9 months.
- Worked in a private school for 2 months, it was a great experience! haha, have never been to a private or international school before. Taught English to Primary 5 kids and Music from Primary 1-6, lol, my ears were exploding.
-Waited for Seminar 2 which was set to be at the end of the month, but they postponed it to early of May. Many activities in school. Was in charge of ice skating for co-curriculum activities (so interesting weyh!). Had sports day in school and that was my last day of work (kids gave me so so many presents) I was so touched and sad to leave them.
-Finally, seminar 2! (after so long). Stopped work in the private school as I wanted to focus fully on my final write up for thesis. But, I visited the kids and came back to mark their English papers. Kids were so happy that I was back.hehe
-It was time for my SV to leave Malaysia and moved to Sweden permanently. I'm so so blessed to have her as my SV, she was God sent, she helped me so so so much for my thesis (words couldn't express it). If not because of her, I think I wouldn't have made it this far. FYP in UM, was asked to give my testimony (shy die) HAHA. It was Park's last sem and last month too =(. Sent him off for the last time to KLIA2.
-Kayak with other CG's. It was my first time of kayaking and it was not easy! So painful ah my arms LOLZ, but I enjoyed it so much! Joined a 7km run too (my last run in UM). Worked in TJC (Tadika Juara Cerdik) in DUMC as a helper (while i'm waiting for a job)
-Worked in JC till the 2nd week of August. Got a job in Nobel and was given Geography to teach. Many things happened when i was in Nobel, Geography was an interesting subject to teach as it was all in Cambridge English
-Did not have a nice and conducive working environment in the school that I was in. It was kinda roller coaster journey for the whole month.
-Resigned from the school before the school holidays. It was my first time to Ipoh too! (roadtrip with Adib and Sarah), it was a daytrip, so we left KL at 5am and reached home around 12 midnight. Ate so much and visited many interesting places.
-Thesis results was out! Passed with minor corrections. Also tutored 2 international students Malay Language (it was fun). Did all the corrections for final thesis submission.
-Christmas production, this year I became the audience, hehe. Got to watch the whole production, it was great! Settled the final submission for thesis and went back hometown to celebrate Christmas with le parents (after so many years). Twas a great break for me as well.
As i looked back, God had really blessed me with many things. Despite the many challenges that I faced, He never failed to guide me thru it. I am grateful and thankful to Him!
I pray that this year, in 2018, I will get to experience more of God's presence in my life.
