Syukur alhamdulillah, it's over. The interview, I mean.
In order to avoid the stress of driving through Penang traffic, I managed to reach the Butterworth jetty in 15 minutes from home, boarded the ferry without having to queue, relaxed and enjoyed the sea breeze on the ferry, and reached Penang island an hour before the scheduled time. My cough is manageable now and I feel better than a few days before. My kind and friendly taxi driver, Sulaiman dropped me off right in front of the stairs to the building and even gave me his card in case I need his service again [oh, insyaAllah I will when I need to go to Georgetown on my own again :)]
How was it? Well, it was okay. I answered the questions posed by the interviewer as well as I could. As usual, there're topics I know which were not asked and a few which I wasn't sure of, which were tested on me, huhuhuu. I just hope the interviewer is not stingy with marks. After all, I still owe the government (that sponsored my studies) some money :P
Anyway, I managed to befriend a few other interviewees who were waiting for their turn. Alhamdulillah I even had a treat today. Murah rezeki hari ini. Thanks Norallia for the lunch treat and thanks Zamilah (yeah, kenal lagi seorang blogger, hehe) for giving me a lift back to Butterworth. We've only met each other today and already they're so kind and helpful. Doesn't that just warm your heart?
Thanks for your prayers and encouragement, friends. I hope to pass this interview so that I can carry on with my work without having to worry about it any longer. There's a lot left to be done.
Am taking a short break. Will be back soon, insyaAllah.
