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.

Back then in Semester 1 at KMB, when the TGB students would usually play tennis in the evening (assabiyah sekali), I would often see planes flying across the clear blue sky. I kept telling those that were in the court that the planes somehow gave me some kind of motivation cause one day, I'll be in one of those - leaving this country to pursue my dreams.

And now, the time finally comes, the time for me to leave.

Seriously...aku tak sangka aku fly harini.

I never really know how it feels like to leave Malaysia for a very long time. Well, I did send off my friends at KLIA but you never really know until you are in their shoes.

Oh, and thank you to for sending me off...;)

Thank you too for the text messages, calls, gifts, messages via fb, fs or ym.

Kita jumpa lagi ye. Kalau tak, kita jumpa kat syurga, insyaAllah...

all i have to do is dream

It was the last Saturday. Sleeping peacefully in his room was A, who still didn't realize it's already Subuh. Suddenly, A woke up. Apparently, someone had grasp A's foot causing him to wake up surprisingly. A was moody as most people would when they were awaken from sleep unanticipatedly and he saw a figure at the end of his bed but he didn't know who it was cause everything's dark. Then, the figure illuminated his phone and shone the light onto his face...A saw who it was and smiled instantaneously :)

"Tidak sempurna iman seseorang kamu sehingga dia mencintai saudaranya sebagaimana dia mencintai dirinya sendiri"

Well pak cik, I guess it didn't happen as the dream but at least, this part is =)

Click on the picture to enlarge. You should click it.

Yeah, look what I found;

"ish... bukan slalu tgk adlan lepak dorm ke... sambil dgr mp3... bwat omwork... ader can nak bwat balik x? boleh tak??"

"ni boleh kan adlan??60... mase nyer nak knal lebey rapat...."

And you certainly did more than that! Thanks a lot! You were always there for me & it sucks...cause I'm not always there for you. I'm not sure if you can remember this one but I know you have a good memory too...

"Adlan, nak bagitau satu secret...adlan tak boleh bagitau sape2, bestfriend adlan pon tak boleh"

I was grinning at that time as it was funny cause the statement wasn't valid since you're already my bestfriend :)

"Ujian persahabatan adalah saat datangnya kesulitan"

Guess what? You passed with flying colours! :D

I wish you all the best & I hope you're okay...always have, always will...

i gotta feeling

Somehow, I do believe that everything would be just fine :)

I mean, well...

I wasn't able to send you off at KLIA,
I haven't taken a picture with you yet,
I could not go to your house before I fly,
I didn't go to your house for your kenduri,
I couldn't go to your house so you can treat me,
I didn't get to meet all my teachers during graduation,
I still don't know how to cook, so I couldn't teach you how to prepare the tempoyak dish;

You didn't call me like you used to,
You went home early during graduation,
You still haven't replied to my post though the other 4 had,
You haven't seen me for a very long time and the last time was in Penang,
You and I are connected through Facebook and the last time I saw you was 2 years ago,
You didn't come to my house for raya or makan nasi after saying about them several times,
You won't be able to go to the same university as I am despite the fact you acquired the minimum requirement;

We didn't eat kambing together,
We didn't even get to see each other during graduation,
We couldn't break fast together this year before each of us fly,
We didn't carry out the things that we had planned when IB was over,
We won't be going to the same university (haish...I still haven't gotten over this issue),
We couldn't carry out all the plans that you've thought about while I'm in Shah Alam (kat London la ye),
We still don't manage to take a picture together in any of our graduations (accidental & blurry ones don't count);

Tabahkan hati wahai sahabatku...;)

I'm sure Allah has something cool in stored for us.

How can I be so sure about this?

Lagipun, aku jumpa benda ni bila jalan-jalan dengan kawan aku semalam. Which one? Kawan adlan :)

I'm sure that the next 5 years will be one heck of a ride too.

New drama, new twists, new setting, new challenges, new characters but I'm looking forward to the recurring ones.

Dear Nottingham, bring it on!

now or never

Did you say it?
I love you.
I don't ever want to live without you.
You changed my life.
Did you say it?

Make a plan.
Set a goal.
Work toward it.
But every now and then, look around.
Drink it in.
Cause....this is it.

It might all be gone tomorrow.

Meredith Grey, Grey's Anatomy Season 5

That's why I want to say whatever I want to say so I won't regret it in the future. I mean, if you never tell the people you care that you love them, how would they ever know?

Yeah, and I don't really care what other people say.

On a whole new subject but still related to the post, I'm still young!
There are so many things that I can do before I grow old. When that time comes, it might be too late to do anything.

photo inspired by Aqeem's profile picture on YM

"Allah, Dialah yang menciptakan kamu dari keadaan lemah, kemudian Dia menjadikan (kamu) sesudah keadaan lemah itu menjadi kuat, kemudian Dia menjadikan (kamu) sesudah kuat itu lemah (kembali) dan beruban. Dia menciptakan apa yang dikehendaki-Nya dan Dialah Yang Maha Mengetahui lagi Maha Kuasa."
(Ar-Rum (30): 54)

By the way, I was inspired to write this post after watching the Season 5 finale of Grey's Anatomy.

And just so you know, I love you...
