Alhamdulillah..it's over :)



Alhamdulillah...Alhamdulillah.....Alhamdulillah, I've completed all the things that I was supposed to do in order for me to graduate in my PhD studies. All the computer work + simulations + paper submission + journal submission + thesis writings + power point presentations + closed defense + public defense has come to the end last Saturday (9th February 2013). 

 
+- cam-whore to kill the butterfly in my stomach -+

+- bla bla bla...'goreng' sesedap rasa -+

 
 +- Q & A session -+

As for now, there's some administrative thingy to be done i.e thesis bindings, thesis hard cover printings and thesis submissions to the student office and then I will just have to wait for the graduation ceremony to get the official certificate which will be held on 26th March 2013.


Man, I couldn't believe that it's almost over. To be honest, throughout this 3 and 1/2 years of my PhD studies, I am thinking of QUITTING it!. 

If you've been reading this blog for quite some time, you do know that our family's favorite activity is to go for sightseeing and traveling almost every weekend. So I couldn't really blamed some of you who might think that getting a PhD certificate is so damn easy that Yatie Chomeyl and her family have soooooo much time to enjoy themselves (refer Asyik jalan2 je, study ke makan angin?).


The truth is, I don't really like sharing my 'down' time in this blog. I used to share my melt down moments in these entry -> Bila rasaKU ini rasaMU, Tanda Kasih yang Chomeyl dari kalian, Permanent Finite head damage (T_T) and the next thing I know, the negative feelings become stronger depsite all the supports and nice words given by readers of this blog. 

So, I decided to just share my sweet moment in this blog of mine and to keep the negative feelings all by myself.

Of course, it wasn't easy to keep all the negative feelings inside me on my own. So, sometimes it'll blow up and the next thing I know, I'll be crying non-stop and saying negative thing to hubby such as "I don't know what to do, I feel very stupid. I don't want to do this anymore!". 

Only Allah know how many times have I uttered those sentences throughout this 3 and 1/2 years, thankfully we Muslims has Allah to help guide us in this difficult journey.

I'm so grateful to have Solah as my husband, I really do. As he has finished his PhD earlier (Tahniah Dr Solah), he totally understand my feelings and he is the one who keep pushing me errr...actually more to kicking my butt to make sure that I continue my study till the end. 

 +- hubby and I in front of Kyushu University (photo archive back in Sept 2011) -+


This also explains the lacks of updates and entry published in this blog for the past 6 months. I forced myself to really focus on finishing my works and at the same time trying hard to adapt between my role as a student, a wife and a mother of 2 boys...huhuhuhu. 

+- 3 charming and handsome heroes in my life -+


I am lucky to have Prof Ohya and Prof Uchida as my supervisors as their expertise, understanding, and patience, added considerably to my graduate experience. They were very understanding whenever it comes to my family matter and for that I could not have imagined having a better supervisors and mentors for my PhD study.

+- my supervisors -+


I was also delighted to be given the chance to interact and mingle with the secretaries (Ono-san and Yoshii-san) in my laboratory; so I decided to give each of them a pair of 'baju kurung' as a farewell gift so that they'll always remember me and hopefully they'll wear it one day (of course during the summer season).  

Also, not forgetting one of the technical staff (Dr Nagai) who speaks English fluently. These 3 people treat me as one of their friend and helping me to stay sane during the ‘crazy’ period of my study (i.e when it gets closer to paper/journal/thesis dateline). 

+- my friends at the laboratory -+

Despite all the sleepless night, all the breakfast + lunch + dinner at the laboratory, all the straining eyes in front of the computer, all the departing moment with my family, all the long distance relationship with hubby and baby, all the tears + sweats + struggles that I have to face for the past 3 1/2 years, I could finally take a longgggggggggggggggggg deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep breath now as it's over. Dude, it really is over...finally it is over!.  

Alhamdulillah..all praise due to Allah.

Now, could you please excuse me. I got some last minute shopping and packing to do. Hasta la vista peeps.



Psssssttt : It's 13th February 2013 today, which was supposed to be my late mom's 57th birthday. She's the one who really wanted to see me getting my PhD and she left before I could do so. Well at least I've fulfill my promise to her....Al-fatihah Ma...I miss you so much. ♥


~ Thanks for reading this (^-*) ~

Terharu betul baca this post Yatie..Dah lama x follow ur blog even lain2 blog pon. x dapat nk ikut perkembangan ur second baby dr u mengandung now dah nak grad dah. Akan baca semua merathon nanti lepas i can say the same thing as i u did.."Dah abis dah"...x sabar nak kata gitu..mmg suke ur blog n tgk semangat u n ur hubby as a successful muslim couple there in Japan..muda2 dah dapat title dr masing2..alhamdulillah..semoga lebih ramai anak melayu islam ikut jejak langkah u..

Alangkan masters level pon cam ye ye ooo nak abiskan, lagikan PhD kan?? memang bukan mudah..kesesalan separuh jalan and question like why im doing this tu mmg selalu menerjah kepala otak kasik down sedown2nya..(kerja syaitan)...

Congratulations..
