The Road Not Taken...

Today, Dietetic Clinic is closed (as usual, Friday is the time for me to get relax)... I'm now spending my time onlining.. So wanna share with all of u about the story of mine..

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN.. This is actually a poem by Robert Frost, published in 1916.. That time in a year 2000 (I'm form 4) the English Literature subject was introduced in Secondary School and we learnt about this poem, for some of u yang seumur, mesti tau ni poem kan.. This poem is so meaningful and that's why I still remember it till today.. So, I would like to relate this poem with the story of my life la...

Actually, now I'm still on influence of alcohol.. Got drunk last nite.. Ni karaja c Uncle Toyuk la ni belanja stout..Baru gaji kan kemarin, trus dia belanja.. Haus-haus minuman tin kunun.. So as a result, I woke up late today (kogutan bah).. Luckily my staff will punch my attendence card everyday.. So, if I come late no prob la..Just for friday la, no appointment and no outpatient referral... Got a phone call from Pharmacy Department just now asking for 2 people to come to A&E (Accident & Emergency) Department for urine sampling.. I'm not going to easily 'donate' my urine, nanti kedapatan ada alcohol.. It is actually a procedure done everytime to make sure goverment servant are not involved in drugs and so on..

So back to the story.. Actually I keep on thinking of my past.. 'Did I chose a right path'? What if I didn't choose to be a gorverment servant last time? Would my life will be diffrrent now?

Before I decide to be a goverment servat, I got a lot of job offered.. I admit that hunting for work is not a problem for me.. Since I'm very good in communication skill and the way I express myself to the interviewer, gave them an impress feeling... (sound like meninggi diri pula, tiada la cerita betul ba ni)..

This are among the top three:

1. Doing Master and Phd In Clinical Nutrition, United Kingdom
2. Dietitian, Hospital Kuala Lumpur
3. Dietitian, Department of Nutrition And Food Services, National Sport Council Bukit Jalil.

.. and the list goes on, including the interview that I didn't attend..So many to mention..

THE 1ST RANK: The dream of my life is actually study in oversea.. I already got an offer from USM to further my study in United Kingdom (Fully sponsored by USM).. The University I choose are:

1. University Of London (King's College London).
2. University Of Liverpool
3. University Of Wales, North Ireland

The offer still open till now.. It's up to me to continue or not.. They gave me 1 year time to settle up everything including IELTS exams, Research course, BTN and deal with Malaysian Ambassy.. Why I refuse this offer is that I have to be bonded with USM and become a lecturer in Kelantan for 7 years contract.. Other than that, finishing my study untill Phd will take 7 years.. Damn, I'm so old la nanti bila graduate..
The interview for this offer is so tough.. There were 7 interviewer and among them were Campus Director and Deans from each school in USM.. I'm so nervous that time, bekali2 p tandas lagi tu sebelum nama kena panggil.. huhuhu

THE 2ND RANK: Actually my 1st posting was in Hospital Kuala Lumpur.. I got a call from the interviewer asking weather I want to be posted in HKL or not (Those yg bertuah saja selalu dpt posting d HKL).. I'm so confused that time.. Should I say Yes or Not.. Usually people will not get a chance to choose where u want to be posted.. Just wait the posting letter.. But they gave me this option.. Then after getting opinion from my family I ended up of saying NO.. Damn the decision.. Bodohnya sa, punya main best tu sana kan boleh enjoy!!! Buduh betul oh... Then, they give me the post at Hospital Duchess Of Kent Sandakan, but sadly to say when I went for report duty at JKN in KK, due to some management problem they send me back to Hospital Keningau...Alala.. Is it lucky for me as a keningauian o not? Yeah, got advantges and disadvantges right? But, young person like me suppose to work out of hometown bah.. Tua nanti baru lah apply tempat sendiri kan...*sigh*

THE 3RD RANK: I went for interview in National Sport Council (MSN) in Bukit Jalil.. I'm so impressed with the working environment there.. Dealing with athlete and so on.. I already got the post there and the interviewer was hoping so much from me to work with them.. They tell me that I'm a good counselor from the way I talk.. Am I? I still remember, the interview session was so funny.. 1st interview was in USM, it was a screening process.. They went to USM, UKM and UPM searching for person to fill the post.. Among the question was about the sport nutrition, and of course a lil bit about sport.. I stiil remember they ask me regarding where was the last SUKMA and OLYMPIC been held? Sa ni pandai2 la kunun tau, jawab jak sembarangan.. The interviewer laugh at me.. Suppose I have to admit to them that I don't know, tapi berlagak tahu pula sa ni.. kantoi...
Then I thought I was not selected to the next interview but again I'm so lucky to be called up to Bukit Jalil.. Finally on Sept they call me to sign the contract but I already work with government... Maybe if I work with them, I'm now not in Hospital Keningau but in Sukan SEA Korat, Thailand.. huhuhuhu...

Whatever it is, the decision I made couln't be regreted.. What is done is done.. Should ponder over the future then.. My target now after 3 years is applying for further study from JPA.. But still have to see my achivement in 3 years.. If I did well in my work, sure everything will be in my hand.. So presenting u THE ROAD NOT TAKEN...

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
