dan salam sejahtera...
So, after 8 months of unemployment, all of us managed to start our working life in one and half months time. That'll be in April insyaAllah if there's nothing wrong with the system. Even Adila already start working this week. Good luck girl! The rest of us will start soon. 
There's a lot of things to do this one month and half. One of it is to update all my story while travelling and while living in Russia. I wanted to remember all these memories and I dont want it to fade away. Reading it back will be such a joy for me. Below is the article written by me and published during our graduation day. 
Our Journey Begins here…
By: Siti Hajar Mohammad Farid (631M)
11th June 2015 – At this moment, we just finished our second GOST examination – Pediatrics. There’s three more paper left for us to finish. Three more papers before we start our life somewhere in the world. Just name it – Malaysia, Cameroon, Kenya, Sri Lanka, Maldives, and much more. It’s begin here. In Nizhny Novgorod State Medical Academy, Russia. 
FRIENDSHIP. That’s what we learn throughout our students’ life. It was meaningful. Some genius people once said that – ‘If you make friends with people more than 6 years, they’ll be your friend for a lifetime’. Thus, we are here to prove it right. 
HARDSHIP. The examinations! Oh my God. I still remember the first time I took the Chemistry Examination paper here. It was totally different from the system in Malaysia. We needed to answer orally to the lecturer, whereas all this while we were trained to answer everything on sheets of paper. The nervousness, the adrenaline rush, the battle one-to-one with the lecturers were unforgettable. Yet, we survived!
EXPERIENCE. Learning Russian cultures from the Pro! Our Russian language lecturers always expose us to their culture. Bring us to see the ballet shows, the circus, and the zoopark. Even some of the lecturers cooked Beetroot Soup (Borsh) for the students to give us the chance to be like a Russian. It was a splendid experience. 
KNOWLEDGE. The knowledge pass down to us from the great lecturers! The famous endocrinologists, cardiologists, surgeons, and physicians in the Nizhny Novgorod region were there to teach us. It was a blessing for us to learn from the specialists. 
Here, I would like to express our gratitude to the Rector, the Deans, the lecturers and all the managing team of this academy (NNSMA). Our journey begins here. A journey to become excellent doctors….

Am I?

Old West, A Famosa Resort.
27 October 2015
"We’re a scared generation – scared to fall in love, scared to commit, scared to fall, scared to get hurt, scared to get our hearts broken. We don’t allow anyone in, nor do we step out and love anyone unconditionally. We lurk from behind walls we’ve created ourselves, looking for love and running away the moment we really find it. We suddenly ‘cannot handle it’. We don’t want to be vulnerable. We don’t want to bare our soul to anyone. We’re too guarded."
Am I? I think yes. It describes me a lot.
