During our 3rd year, the Malaysian financial crisis hit us. it hit almost all Malaysians. some are more fortunate than us but it hit me and the other fellow malaysian students really bad. MARA didnt send anymore money to their scholars, JPA had to pull back a few students... it was a terrible time for most malaysians students. some had to take up a couple of odd jobs, just to survive. i worked at GAP (the most fun place to work!)
I was so lucky to have my housemates around at that time. Nina and Lily were so ever willing to help me and Ashraf with whatever financial situations we were in. they were amazingly generous with a capital G! and i'm so grateful to them till today. we still do keep in touch till today (thanks to Friendster and now Facebook).
So when Nina asked me to make a couple of cards for her husband and her dad for Father's Day, i felt yeay! now i can give a little something back! she's been hasseling me for my account number so that she could pay, but i kept saying "shhhhhhhhh" or i just change the topic!
I am till today, blessed with beautiful, wonderful friends. Ashraf's now married and living in Manchester, Lily's married and blessed with 2 cute kids, now living in Australia, Nina has 3 kids now, and recently moved to London and settling in very nicely. and lastly, here i am, living far from Malaysia. all the 4 of us are enjoying our lives, and all living out of our home countries! (can you believe it guys!)
Will post another one i made for Nina in my next post. Glad the package arrived safely, pleased that you liked them Nin!
All my love,
