MARA Vs. KMNS

[I am blogging from the college's cyber cafe. Hullo, this is a happy man!!]

The pot of gold versus the pot of dirt - which one should I choose? You would think that it was such an obvious, in-the-face question that any sane man would answer with no qualms whatsoever, but this decision took a lot of time, thinking, praying, and discussing with friends and family.

The Matriculation course is much easier, with only 3 exam subjects to study for, but with a more limited option of studying locally after that. On the other hand, if I go for MARA, the IB program is a hell lot tougher, with 6 subjects including BM (which I loathe), but it is more all-rounded and guarantees me a place in a university overseas, provided that I meet the exam requirements. After talking to my family and church members, I decided to take the challenge of the harder and more narrow path.

I know, I'll miss my new friends here, but it's not like I would have been able to see them that often here anyway, since we'll all be going to our separate classes and lecture rooms. But anyway, I'll be staying around at Kolej Matrikulasi Negeri Sembilan for another two weeks, until I return to Kuching for Gawai, then I'll restart my college journey at MARA College Banting at the end of June. You ask, why I don't go home straight away? Well I want to hang out with my friends a bit, exploit the facilities more, and also maybe I can learn something new from the first few classes of Maths, Biology and Chemistry. No harm getting a head start, right?

Isn't it just so weird, that all three of the Lis children are sponsored by MARA, all doing Medicine, and all probably going to Ireland? Well, what can I say? It's really God's blessing.
