Salam. I don’t know how to start because I’m very happy of my convocation. As I mentioned in my previous entry, my session was in the Sunday morning. Alright then, let’s recap.
All of my family members attended my convocation except Adila, because she participated in rowing competition at Putrajaya. My parents and my sisters sat in the first row near the stage. After I went on the stage for the first time, I was asked to sit at the award winners seating, which is close to my family too.
Best Students (Co-curriculum) For KAED
After waiting for almost an hour for Engineering and ICT students to receive their scroll, its time for the award winners session. Each department has its own best student in academic, cocurriculum and overall achievement. I never thought that I can win this award. Here’s the screen capture of my achievement but my final CGPA is incorrect.
I attended my sister’s convocation in UiTM in 2006. At that time, I wanted to be one of the Vice Chancellor Award recipients. Anyway, Alhamdulillah, my prayers was answered because I’ve made it into the Rector’s List. If only I aimed higher. Click here to watch the entire award winners in Youtube.
Alhamdulillah, I was chosen to deliver valedictory speech during my session. I have to prepare the text on my own and I also asked some help from my friends and lecturers from CELPAD. They helped my with the content, correcting my grammar and also translating Arabic text for me.
Before I deliver the speech, I went to the restroom to pee because the hall is so cold. To make things worse, I don’t have much time because ICT students just began to receive their scroll and the toilet officers told me to remove my robe before entering the toilet. Glad I manage to made it in time.
Actually, it is my first time deliver a speech on the main stage of CAC. I was very nervous and my legs were shaky. So there goes my valedictory speech. I should have printed bigger fonts because it doesn’t look good when giving a speech while holding the text. However, I’m glad that the crowd supported me with the applauses especially from my friends in KAED.
Lunch with VIPs
After the session was adjourned, all award winners with their parents were invited to have lunch with the VIPs. Since all of the family table was occupied, I have to sit at the media table. Since there’s no members of media is coming for lunch, I’ve invited my sisters and Huda to have lunch together.
This is the moment I’ve been waiting for. Let the picture do the talking!

Getting Final Transcript
If only I could turn back time. I know it is impossible but I know I can do better in some of the courses but I took them for granted. Anyway, my degree stuff is over. Its time for the beginning of brighter future.
Congratulations to all my friends, to all IIUM graduands class of 2009. May Allah bless all of you.
