I know I didn't really make an official post about the JPA scholarship that I applied for a few months ago. Yes, I got shortlisted for the interview which I thought was a great experience. And praise the Lord, I am awarded the scholarship to study dentistry. It was really a great news for my family and I. Really thank God for it. However, I still didn't get to know where I will be posted to for my dentistry course. I had to wait for about 2 weeks for the offer letter to come!
While the others had gotten theirs, I was waiting anxiously at home. I couldn't even bear the curiosity in me! So, I had ErJie to call the JPA for me and ask. And yes, they were quite open to tell and I will be posted to INDIA. She messaged me through MSN and I thought she was just kidding! But, it was really true. I'm going to INDIA. Honestly, I was very sad and I actually cried when I knew it because I really wanted to go to NZ or Australia or anywhere ErJie is going to but, INDIA. And I really wanted to go to the 4-seasoned countries. Was totally depressed!
But, I still got to face the fact. And yes, I did feel much better after chatting to ErJie. She told me about her friends studying there and they are all doing very good there. And the accommodations there are quite luxurious. Not bad at all studying in India. So, I was quite OK after talking to my sister. I guess I was the only one overreacting because even my mum and dad were OK with the results. One important thing that I realised was that this is what God has planned for me. This is where He wants me to go and hopefully through this, I will be closer to Him.
Btw, I will be doing my Cambridge A-Levels at KTT (Kolej Teknologi Timur) for 1.5years. But, I prefer to call it ETC. Sounds much better right? Haha... It's located at Sepang which is so far from the city! But, I don't mind. I am still going to find ways to get myself to ErJie's place every weekend. I am going there very soon. The place is quite... I don't know how to describe it but, I'll let you guys know when I'm there. I just really hope I'll get a good place and good, clean house mates. Please pray for me... Really hope everything will be fine there too.
And... I just went for my medical check-up today. Gosh... I came back with two weak arms! I had a blood test where the nurse had a hard time looking for my blood vessels and she almost had to do it for two times. Then, I had an injection to test for TB where the nurse drew a big circle around it and wrote some notes on my arm and warned me not to rub it off. Oh yeah! Not forgetting, I even had a vaccination yesterday which made my arm hurts. :( Well, I just got to get used to these things as I will have to go over the same process when I go to India.
So, right now, I am still trying to analyse the forms I have to fill, get it done ASAP and get as much info as I can about ETC (KTT). Please do pray for me when I'm there. No matter what, I will stay strong and have faith in God. Don't worry! ^_^
