Changes in Life

Monday, December 05, 2011

As most of u know, I got married last month and it was a huge step that I bravely took... but marriage is not the only life altering event that I had undergone... I also changed my job from being a part time full time (PTFT) lecturer at UiTM Alor Gajah to being a Pegawai Pendidikan Pengajian Tinggi at Politeknik Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin... The transfer also happened last month and therefore November was kinda a big month for me... 

I laughed at the fact that no matter how hard I tried to stay far away from home, at the end of the day, I ended up being home regardless... haha... Well, I don't actually hate being home... It's just that I would love to see new places... Places with malls and huge cinemas... I also laughed at the fact that I used to not want to leave home when I was in school and because of that, I rejected so many boarding schools offer... The irony is quite amusing... 

So, here I am, after 5 - 6 years being at Melaka, studying and working there, I'm now staying permanently at Terengganu... Hmm... The word "permanently" can easily be erased from here because who knows what will I up to in a couple of years... We'll see :-)

At the moment, I'm staying at my parents' house in Ketengah Jaya, Dungun, Terengganu and I'm so glad that my wife loves the house... All her life she sort of dreamed of staying in a wooden, kampung house... My parents' house is not entirely made of wood but she loves it nevertheless because the windows are beautiful and there are so many decorative plants... 

She mentioned to me a few times that she love Terengganu's atmosphere as it's completely different from Kuala Lumpur (KL) and Melaka... You see, KL and Melaka people are so tensed, they drive crazily... Whereas, Terengganu people are not so tensed because there are no traffic jams... Therefore, it's quite nice to drive... No rude drivers, no road bullies... Just smooth driving... 

Plus, there are so many greenery here... Terengganu government has loads of money but the development here is so slow... It's not a bad thing though as most forests are being left alone... If u come to Terengganu, u would want to expect blue skies and fresh air... Haaaa...

I haven't been exploring Terengganu for so long since I spent most of my past years being in Melaka and because of that, I wasn't aware of the development that has been happening around here... Last week, my wife and I went to the popular Mesra Mall at Kemasik, Kemaman and were indeed impressed to see Vincci, Carlo Rino, Famous Amos, Reject Shop, Starbucks, Secret Recipe, Burger Kind and so many other famous outlets there... The mall also has bowling alleys and TGV cinemas and also a futsal court... Cool huh?

As for work, I started last couple of weeks and so far, so good... My colleagues are very friendly and helpful... The Politeknik is also beautiful... It's located at the bottom of beautiful Bukit Bauk and therefore, the scenery is breathtaking... Even the water in the drains are crystal clear because all the trash and dirt are swept away by the water from the hill... Awesome... I love it here

Being at home is not as bad as I imagined before... My wife loves Terengganu and that makes me really really happy...
