Assalamualaikum wbt 🙂
Wah lamanya tak update blog nih!!!!! Susah jugak nak jadi penulis. Terpaksa buang dari list cita-cita.
Anyway, our lives has changed. No more student life. No text books, no classes, no tutorials and obviously no more Emirates and no more England. Still, UK remains in my heart, and I believe to them too.
1) Faezah – Penolong Pengarah Audit at Jabatan Audit Negara. Location: Putrajaya, Presint 2.
2) Ida – same position as Faezah. Location: Johor Bharu
3) Lubna – Penolong Setiausaha at Kementerian Kesihatan. Location: Still unknown. That’s why la I melepak kat library mehhhh…..siap banyak pulak masa nak update blog.
Sarah is in Birmingham, pursuing her ACCA.
Nieda and Siti, also as PTD at Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi & Sumber Manusia.
……………time flies, huh??.…..
and we can drive with confidence on the road now!!! Clap clap clap!!!!! Alhamdulillah, he grants my wish 🙂 ” Ya Allah, jadikanlah aku seorang pemandu yang berhemah secepat mungkin”…haha that’s my sincere prayer each time I performed solat back then. Direct and clear. Tapi macam belum cukup berhemah je…so kena mantapkan lagi doa 🙂
Sakeena is somebody’s wife now. Kauthar still got a year to go, and Kak Faiza now is lecturing in Ipoh.
Kadang-kadang bila teringat balik suka duka masa cari kerja dulu, sebak pulak rasa. Nak flashback sikitlah ;
– FLASHBACK BEGINS –
22 July 2010-22 October 2010:
A sweet and memorable phase of being unemployed. 3 months, not very long as ‘penganggur’ right? Just nice je kan? Actually it was less than 1 month, starting from the date I started searching for job intensively, so……yeah!! Not bad at all.
People’s habit: they keep talking…….over and over again…..
” Lubna nak kerja apa? ”
” Bila nak start kerja? ”
” Dah ada interview belum? ”
” Tak risau ke takde kerja lagi? ”
” Tak nak mengajar ke? Jadi la lecturer. Tapi kena sambung master la ”
” Nak kerja apa dengan degree Econs tu? ”
” Ko nak tunggu orang pinang ko ke?” *bedebukkk!!! zappppp ke dalam hati*
Tough questions. As time passed by, they became tougher. Dear myself, stay calm. Just face it, ok? Hailaaaaa don’t have to think very much laaa. People are just concern about me.
” Apply Petronas la. Bonus 6 bulannnnnn…..6 bulannnnn….”
” Eh kalau PNB, boleh mintak Abg Rizal tolong, bagi la resume kat dia ”
” Try la IKEA. Nanti senang nak shopping, dapat staff discount ”
” British Council tak mau? Diorang suka UK grads ni ”
” Lubna bukak la bisnes sementara menganggur ni ”
More and more suggestions. Thank u guys!! I tried to deal with them one by one…..not very easy huh?
So to doctors and teachers, do not worry. Definitely there will be places for you.
And the prayers continue..again and again…
Have to admit that I’m not a strong person to face all the tough assessments by big companies. All those interviews, presentations etc etc… haiyooooo!!! Have you seen final episodes of Gadis Melayu TV9? I understand their feeling. Very much ;p
One fine day, I found out a new company advertising some vacancies. Interesting..but haih! Closing date was on 23rd August!! Now is October!! But never mind, I’ll just try. If it’s your destiny, you’ll get it, how hard it is. Let’s go to KL—–interviews and job hunting——
18 October 2010
930am-Arrived at the office in KL and resume was sent.
330pm-Received call from the HR senior manager, asking if I’m interested to join them. YES or NO? Oh I asked for an interview then.
20 October 2010
2pm-Arrived for interview.
4pm-Session started. Finished after one hour. I enjoyed it!!! Offer accepted.
22 October 2010
Confirmation of acceptance. Alhamdulillah——–will start on 1st November 2010.
– FLASHBACK ENDS –
And presenting to you, my first and foremost employer since graduation day>>>
"Segalanya Bermula Di Sini" - Selamat Datang ke dunia baru penyiaran.
Mom said once I told her the good news, ” Siang malam doakan Lubna dapat kerja…”. Tears, please disappear.
A few days in KL, searching for a good job, walking, sweating, LRTing, and it seemed that her prayers accompanied me throughout the journey. That’s the power of LOVE. Thank you mom!! Mummy and daddy are happy with my new job, again Alhamdulillah….Oh I’m not one of the TV celebrities, as far as I am concern. I’m just an ordinary office girl.
But there will always be another side of the story;
” Kan overseas grad, pegi la apply big companies. ”
” Apa nak dibuat dengan degree Econs kat Al Hijrah tu? ”
” Camne nak hidup dgn gaji banyak tu je kat KL? ”
” Apa motif nak apply company kecik? ”
Yes, I admit, everything needs money, but let me choose what I like to do. Plus, I don’t mind learning new things.
” Hati manusia itu cenderung pada kebaikan dan gelisah pada kejahatan. ” (Rasulullah SAW)
Never mind, people. We give and take. We forgive and forget.
I do not intend to satisfy everybody.
” Ok la tu..”
” Eh ok la gaji banyak tu untuk fresh grad..”
” Dah tak payah tukar2 kerja lepas ni..dah elok dah tu.”
It is ok. As Long as Allah knows what I’m doing and why I do that….that’s more than enough.
As long as my family supports me…what else can I ask for?
I always pray that TV Al Hijrah Media Corporation will stand still in the industry, holding to its mission and vision. Eternally.
Thank you to Allah and AHMC~~

But sadly, I’m no longer there. Missing it sometimes 😦 9 months of excitement. Kickstart of my career there. Currently, waiting for a short and sweet call from MOH, asking me to collect my posting letter.
Anyway, to all my friends out there, all the best!!! Kerja elok-elok!!
Those who are still searching, do not give up!! Strive harder!!~Allah is with us 🙂 Just believe it. That’s an indicator of iman.
