Precious Memories yet changes my life once again

2 October 2009, Friday, a journey to Muar, a village name Sengkang for a program named Intech 2009, organized by PERSAKA UTM and cooperation with KDSE UTM and UMNO. Around 40 students attending this event and among all, I'm the only chinese. At the beginning, I feel shy to continue joining this program, but this was the only chance i have. That true for what people say, opportunity just came once and will just past by just like that. Be so thankful that i managed to follow it. A nice memories yet destructive toward something that had long been form.

During the last meeting, i had been told that my adopted parent was a school head-mister. This situation make me shock. But let see. This was my adopted mother in this program. Pretty. Nice. Caring. Even just short 3 days 2 nights and we didn't take time to understand each other, but i really respect her just like my own mother. Religion didn't hindered me from having who as my adopted parents as long as they are really sincere in receive me into their life.

Introducing my best friend, the first friend that i know during this program. Mum brings me for visiting her school teacher houses for Raya Visiting. This was really a great experience that i have during this visiting. Before i forget, this is Hafiz, form 4 science stream student. Going to miss u much and never forget u brother.
Above and below: Here come some of the committee members in this program. All are from different faculties, different residential areas yet staying under one University to make a success of this program.

Members of the program that come together in unity with one mission. Bring happy memories for one another.
In tradition, this is what we called as "dodol". This is the first time i had hand-on experience in doing all this. Beside dodol, i did hand-on cooking rendang(below), kuah kacang, lemang, and etc.

On the final day, morning, we started our day with J-robik and next having sport with members of village. There were events for children, teenagers and members of village such as walking with ping-pong ball, jumping in gunny bag, throwing water balloons, ketupat making, slow bicycle, bricks walking, rope pulling, coconut bowling and etc. But I'm sad because i dont have the chance to participate in those events because Mum was not available for those events at that time.

This is the ketupat folded by women from the village during the ketupat making competition. I did brings two ketupat back and still hanging in my room which i consider it as a precious ketupat as i receive it from someone.

It had been quite a sometime i didn't stay longer than hours under hot sun. During this event, i got sun burn and turn my skin to black as before this im already dark enough.

This picture was taken after the end of the closing ceremony before we all went back to UTM. From here, i started to feel sad to leave as here give me thousand of precious memories that changed my life.
This was the end of the program already and it's come to the time that i exchanged gifts with my adopted parent. I cant stand the sad feeling of leaving this village until i cry during this time. I feel embarrassed but yet i feel better of letting all out than just keep the sad feeling inside. At 6pm, the bus arrived and this time mum also drop feel drop of tears and she pushed me fast into the bus as i also feel better when i was in the bus. I gotta miss u much mum. This is by faith that i believe we able to be adopted mum and son. Hope this will be continue and not just ended on the third day of the program.
