Visa Guidelines is back

Alhamdulillah, I got married to a lovely lady by the name of Sarah and we're enjoying our new phase in life since that momentous day.

And yeah, I graduated from the University of Nottingham and thus, escaping from the evil clutches of my medical school. woot2! probably needs a post on this as well but yeah, maybe later.

at the bottom of this blog, there is an article on visa guidelines for medical students graduated from UK medical schools under MARA scholarship who are planning to work as an FY1 doctor in the UK.

After all, it was my visa guidelines which i made 5 years ago that helped me to get to know a lot of people and for some, have now become my close friends. And it helped a lot of other people as well. So I hope that this guideline would ease your efforts a bit. Visa application is always confusing.

crash

Location: ELITE Highway, 10.8km
Time: 1800
Day: 7th of Ramadhan 1431 H
Destination: Shah Alam
Vehicle: Honda Accord
The criminal: Adlan Wafi
Passengers: Azizi Al-Hafiz, Syukri Hassan

Crash!

It was raining cats and dogs. Adlan was on his way to send Choki2 to his house in USJ and later, Azizi at KTM Shah Alam. They had previously spent half a day in KMB meeting with teachers and juniors; it was delightful. While maneuvering the car through the heavy downpour, he was slightly diffident of the idea driving in the rain especially with the poor visibility of the road ahead. Azizi advised him to reduce the speed. He obliged. And then, the rain subsided and his view became more vivid. He was grateful and continued his journey.

Soon after, the rain became more menacing although the situation was not as precarious as before. He was on the middle lane and he was close to entering the exit to USJ. And it happened! 

The car in front braked and all he could do was to brake as well. Suddenly, the tyres in front swirled to the left...thus, the whole car spins a complete 180 degrees and CRASH!

The front part part of the car hit the divider and thankfully, everyone was okay...

So, Azizi & Syuk asked if I was ok. And yeah, I was. I went outside to take a look and ya Allah, teruk jugak. So, I decided to call my mum.

Adlan: "Mak, Wafi accident."
Mak: "WAFIIIII!!!" (she sounded as if she was about to cry, huhu...sori Mak)
Adlan: "Mak, Wafi ok...Wafi ok."
 
And I could actually hear a hint of relief in her tone of voice. She said don't do anything until she arrives and don't tell my dad about it so that he won't be worried of me.

So, only about an hour later, did help arrived. The tow truck came and off we went into my mum's car. My mum told me that she was talking to my dad 5 minutes before I called and guess what's the topic of their discussion? Me! Dad was asking if I had arrived home. My mum explained that my dad rarely asked whether or not I had arrived home whenever I go off driving somewhere. And I was like...wow! Maybe betul kata Syuk, "firasat seorang bapa".

I was feeling really bad for both Azizi and Syuk as they were supposed to have iftar with their family members at home, instead they had iftar with me -_-"

So, eventually my dad calls my mum again. This time, it was time to let him know what had happened. My mum gave her phone to me and all the time, I kept hearing my dad's voice asking if I was okay..."Wafi okay?" over and over again. And aku rasa terharu macam nak nangis sebab Mak dengan Ayah sangat sayangkan aku :')

So, we dropped Azizi off at KTM Subang around 8.30pm and he said "thanks for the experience". Ok, at least he's positive. And Syuk benevolently agreed to show us the way to  the Balai Polis and he stayed with us till about 11.00pm. Syuk kept asking if I was okay since the accident happened; even when we're at the police station at night and he kept putting his arms around me. Huhuhu.

And that's what happened yesterday...

Firstly, I'm not traumatized. I really am okay. But I was nervous when I was interviewed by the sergeant (it was like another medical interview).  It's just that I feel bad, frustrated and guilty. Aku banyak menyusahkan orang - I made my parents worried sooooo much, Azizi's and Syukri's plans for the night was cancelled because of me, and all other people - passers-by who stopped by and asked if I need any help, polis, pak cik tow truck, etc.

Nevertheless, 
Alhamdulillah, no one got hurt. 
Alhamdulillah, I didn't hit anyone.
Alhamdulillah, there were no cars in the left lane.
Alhamdulillah, the tyres swirled to the left instead of to the right.
Alhamdulillah, It wasn't that serious as most people said (but to me, it is).
Alhamdulillah, Azizi and Syukri weren't hurt (if anything happened to them, I'm not sure how I can live with it for the rest of my life). 

Hikmahnya...my mum gets to meet Azizi and Syukri. Ihik2. 

Ibrahnya...Adlan Wafi, jangan bawa laju-laju masa hujan. Ish3. Alhamdulillah, Allah saved us from a fatal accident. Allah gave us a chance to continue our lives in this world. Maybe Allah wants to teach me how to drive in heavy downpour (Aku pernah drive masa hujan lebat tapi tak pernah drive waktu hujan lebat gilerrrr). Allah gave me an early warning in life so I wouldn't have the tendency to do it in the future. Allah saved us. Oh and by the way, there goes my clean record of zero accidents...

do it

On my table, there's this piece of paper where I'd write a list of things to do, I call it the Stress Paper!

 My current stress paper

Let's flashback! I remembered having this Stress Paper since my years in MRSM TGB (Jasin) and I guess I've become more organized as time goes by, alhamdulillah.

It's not that I usually forget what to be done. This paper has a psychological purpose - the more things to be done on the list, the more stressful I be (ok, it's more appropriate to write "the more stressful I should be"). On the other hand, the more things get accomplished, the more contented I would be.

So, why do I brag on this piece of paper? Well silly, it's about setting aims and goals especially in this month of Ramadhan. Come on, I know you do have your own goals thus, surely you want to get it done, right?

After all, we don't even know for sure if we will meet Ramadhan  again next year. So, set your aims and do it...
