"Vroom vroom" - the sound of a motorcycle was heard from inside a house.
Stepping outside, Farhan rushed toward the mailbox. He was waiting for an offer letter from the Ministry of Education . A letter is enough. A letter with "Urusan Seri Paduka Baginda" stamped on the white A4 A4 sized envelope which the contents were a yellow offer letter and a booklet about the terms and condition that had to be agreed by him to enter a boarding school.
And that day, he was just being lucky. That day had come. He really got offered to a boarding school. SBPI JEMPOL, the name of the school. A name that was very rare to him and his family at that time. . Batu Kikir was also not forgotten. A very unfamiliar name in a very unfamiliar place until Farhan had to find a map to see the location of that school. A school that would soon change the destiny of his life...
The registration day. 0730 am, 12th January 2006, SBPI Jempol.
Greenery was the school theme perhaps. The buildings, the fields, the surrounding, most are in green colour and create a very peaceful mood there. Farhan and his family arrived in the school very early, the registration had not even started yet. His father took the initiative to come early because of fearing that he would get lost during the journey, thank God, they reached Jempol safely.
The student registration was a success. Most of the student accepted the offer and agreed with the term and condition.

1 Abu Bakar As Siddiq, form 1 class.
Farhan was initially assigned in 1UF, but after sitting for an evaluation test for Science and Maths in English, he scored high marks and managed to enter 1AB. Ustazah Nik Rohajar was the teacher in charge for the class that year. In 1AB, Farhan got new friends and those friends become his friends till now.
2 Umar Al Khattab, form 2 class.
Scored A in Form 1 science, but B in Maths, Farhan had to enter 2 UK. Nothing much to be tell in Form 2. Hehe
3 Abu Bakar As Siddiq, form 3 class.
PMR was the main target that year. 9 subject to be taken, BM, BI, BA, MT, SC, PI, GEO, KH, and Sejarah. The year was a successful year, Farhan scored excellently for PMR and aimed for 'Religious Science' stream in form 4.
4 Abu Bakar As Siddiq, form 4 class.
9 As in PMR had made Farhan eligible to enter 4AB, a class that is only occupied by students who achieved 9As in PMR. Alhamdulillah, Farhan was one of them and he hoped to get excellent results for a bigger exam, SPM, which he would sit in the incoming year.
5 Umar Al Khattab, form 5.
Final year, Farhan ended his study with a success. 9As for SPM, Farhan also gave some credits to his classmates. Refer post With Love, UMARIAN . 5 years felt so short and it already ended. Bye school, Bye Jempol.
12th January 2012, 6 years passed.
Perhaps its an irony, perhaps. Perhaps its just a coincidence. Farhan went to SBPI Jempol. The day he registered became the day he went there to collect the SPM certificate and the Cambridge certificate. Now, Farhan is studying at a university in Perak. A university which environment is quite similar to Jempol. A university that is also away from urbanization. Tronoh will now be replacing Jempol in Farhan's heart. At most and at least, 5 years, with the will of Allah.
Lets us pray for Farhan for his success in University Technology of Petronas. May Allah bless him during his study years and may he become a success geoscientist in the future.
