"Baccalaureate" tu genamo rimau?

http://www.murabbi.net/images/smiley/assalamualaikum.gif
The word "genamo rimau" is widely used in Kelantan and can be literally translated as "What Name Of Tiger?"...hahahaha...or in other words; if you heard any Kelantanese saying "genamo rimau"; he/she were actually meaning to say "What the heck is that?". It's just so catchy to say "genamo rimau" because Kelantanese people are cool like that maaaaa  siul .


Ever since I was born to this world *i.e about 29 years 6 months ago*; I've never heard or bumped into this "Baccalaureate" word, despite the fact that English is the medium language for my undergraduate studies + master studies and my PhD studies.


Last Monday, I was told by my youngest sister Awin that she has received a scholarship by Yayasan Peneraju Potensi Bumiputera to pursue her study *after SPM* in the so called International Baccalaureate program. That's when I wrote a comment on her FB wall post; asking her "genamo rimau is this Baccalaureate thingy?'. 


International Baccalaureate is actually a pre-university program which take places for 4 semesters. It is designed to provide a broad-based, comprehensive, college preparatory education. Students who participate in the program may earn an IB Diploma, which will earn them college credit at most universities around the world. nerd  The IB  Diploma has become a symbol of academic achievement centered around high international standards.

As for Awin; the first two years of her study will be conducted at Kolej MARA Banting; then after the 2 years preparation; she will then be send at higher institution university/college in United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or some other foreign countries as suggested by the scholarship committee. 


Of course I'm happy for her. Despite the fact that I'm her most super-duper garang and kakak-yang-paling-kuat-membebel banyakckp in the world; I'm glad that she gets what she wants. Actually she was also offered a place at Negeri Sembilan Matriculation (for matriculation) and International Islamic University Malaysia (to do TESL) but she decided to go for her dream i.e to be a pharmacist. Insya Allah she'd be able to further study in pharmacy; after that 2 years preparation.  

+- yeay...I'm happy for you tepuktangan  -+


This little girl has suffered through A LOT of emotional ups and down in her life; especially after Arwah Mama passed away 4 years ago. But I always believe that if you put your trust and hopes in Allah; there will be a rainbow after the rain; there's a calm after the storm; there's morning after the night and most importantly there's a new beginning awaits for you after any ending senyumkenyit

Life on earth is not always what we expected and wanted it to be. But if we can put our trust in Allah, He can sail us through definitely.
