Alhamdulillah .. rezeki datang tidak dijangka. Never had any thought that we would actually meet up face to face yesterday. Only a few hours before we chatted via Facebook - wondering about having a chance to catch up again.
I was about to get myself ready for an online talk when she texted me saying that she will be in UKM that morning. Soon after I had my session ended, I jumped into my car and headed to Bangi. Since both of us were hungry like a monster (I didn't have a proper breakfast, only a mug of hot Milo, and so did she), we decided (actually it was my choice hehe) to grab a nasi kukus at Dapur Mama.
Too many things to share .. too many things to update. Alhamdulillah .. Sis Faizah has always been my source of inspiration. I learned a lot from her, to be honest. I still remember her kindness and hospitality towards us - Salmah and I - when we first landed in Birmingham - eleven years ago. She and her husband, Abang Bakri were the ones who came to fetch us from the airport and drove us to Nottingham .. er .. Hartley Road, to be exact.
While we still had jetlag - the next day's morning, she knocked on our door, and together we walked to the Jubilee Campus for the very first time in our life. Wow .. coming from a hot and sunny Malaysia .. it was soo hard to endure the 30 minutes walk to the campus .. what more, we had to cover ourselves with a coat due to cold wind out there.
Our live in Nottingham was so precious, even though we were alone there without our family members. Coping in mind that we were students back then - our mission was to complete our research journey no matter how hard it was to be apart from our beloved family. But of course, we had our own new families in Nottingham - Sis Faizah's family and Zac's became part of our lives. Talking about our life as students will take forever! I will reserve some time to tell you our tales later ... inshaAllah!
