woww. dan alhamdulillah. dan naik second yearr. wuwuwuw, dh tua dah rupanya, cuma badan je still kecik comel loteh. eh silap, ketinggian.
On my way from Borg El Arab Airport, an ustaz(same meaning as Mr here), well, ustaz yg tolong settle hal transport la, he asked,
"Kenapa pilih untuk belajar di Mesir ddan bukan Malaysia?"
well, I should have be used to that question you know. I've always been asked whenever I said that I was going to Egypt to proceed with Medical Studies. And I have always been answering that question confidently, answering without hesitating, answering the answer that I've always prepared before hand.
But at THAT specific time, I HASITATE! I'm speechless. I just smiled. so he asked again.
"Why? Why did you choose Egypt? "
I gave him the usual answer that Itold everyone else but I'm very sure that I doubted my own answer. As the Tramco (some sort of van and my transport to my home) rushes trough the wind, into the cities, pass the ocean, I think again.
Has my answer changed?
"Oh sebab kelayakan ke Egypt lagi senang. Tak yah susah2 dapatkan 4flat. kalau dapat 4flat pon tak jamin dapat amik Medic kat Malaysia."
"Emm, sebab Egypt lagi murah. kaalau ke Jordan dan India boleh je. Cuma mahal sikit. "
"Sebab dekat Egypt boleh blaja agama dan bahasa arab iaitu bahasa Al Quran sekali"
"Sebab Egypt is the fastest way that I can think of."
Has all that changed? NO.
BUT, now, I have more optional answers to give.
Because its people are unexpectedly nice although some are unexpectedly bad.
Because their respect to women are very admireble :')
Because they care for us, foreighners like their own child.
Because I love being here.
Believe it or not, I've been missing Egypt when I'm in Malaysia.
Perbezaan Budaya itu indah. Terima lah dengan positif.
