First off, let’s listen to some 90’s song!

So, this post is kinda suggested by my good friend Anthea the chubbarooney. Well, actually she suggested on doing where do you see yourself in 5 years time. You know how I’d like to blog really lengthy post. Haha.
..::Where I was::..
5 years back, which is the year 2006, I was still in high school. Still in form four. I just passed my PMR (with flying colours. hahaha) and I was in a relationship for the first time in my life. Wow. That happened exactly 5 years ago. By then, I was at a good place in my life, and I do mean that in literate terms : I was a good boy.
I got good friends around me, I didn’t know who alcohol was, I didn’t know where cigarette was, and I didn’t know what club/pub was at that time. Well, to avoid myself being called a frog who lingers under a coconut shell, I do know what those things are in all contrary, it’s just that I never thought I would be attached to these items.
During my post-SPM life, I worked in McDonald’s as a crew, for a good 4 months, before I got offered to pursue Matriculation and also Foundation studies. I thought really hard about my studies, even arguing with my parents on the righteous path to education glory.
The issue was, the course offered on both institution were different. One was of the IT or Information Technology stream, while the other was of Engineering stream. I was torned myself. I thought real hard. I was good at Physics and Chemistry, and I kinda loved Chemistry (even aced it) during Form 5. But then again, the reality is, I’m not an engineer at heart. As much as I wanna pursue my studies, I’m still not that type of student who loves to study. I just think of studies as an obligation, to entitle myself to a better life in the future.
So, with that, I took the offer from PETRONAS, the sponsorship and the chance to study at its university. If you were in my shoes at that moment, I was mortified. I was scared of expectation. You see, my dad was a staff in PETRONAS Dagangan, at that time. Since this university accepts 9 A’s students for engineering, and a minimum of 7 A’s for IT stream, I was feeling insecure. Well, I scored 7 A’s for my SPM, and mind you, that means I was just about qualified, and the fact that my daddy was a staff didn’t help at all. I hate it when people make statements about myself getting into the university not on my own term, but rather with my Dad’s help.
Anyway, that all changes. that was within 5 years ago.
.:: Where I Am ::.
I’m currently in a good and awesome state.
I choked on my previous relationship and ended it before it got worse. If you’re smart, you would’ve guessed that by “previous”, I meant that I am in a relationship now. With a new girl. Someone so different from my ex-girlfriend. That’s just about all I can say, because I don’t wanna compare. What I know is, I’m happy. I met her at a church camp, in Cameron Highlands. I was attracted to her instantly and pushed through some circumstances just to get her number (I never do things like this). Sparks fly instantly and I asked her to be my girlfriend after 5 months really getting to know her.
The sad thing about our relationship, is that we’re in a Long Distance Relationship. LDR is something people wouldn’t wanna be in. Statistics shows the people who are in LDR are not gonna last. Well, We’re gonna be an exception to the statistics. Anyway, if you follow my tweets, you may have read that I brought her to meet with my family already. Seems like it’s too fast to do that especially in a LDR right? But it’s okay. Only Mummy haven’t her. Haha. (and she’s mildly pissed about it. haha).
Ok, enough about relationship. Where I am? I’m currently undergoing my practicals at Innosabah Securities Berhad, A Stock Trading Company under Bursa Malaysia. It’s been almost three months, and I’ve got 4 more months to go, but it’s all good right now. hehe.
Anyway, It’s been 20 minutes already, and I will finish up this post with Where I’ll be, soon. Thank you for reading 🙂
