Alhamdulillah... I have finally graduated for the third time.
With the Chancellor...
My prayers were answered by Allah. I had endured some really tough experiences during my undergraduate and masters programs. I was initially a bit phobia of even thinking about doing research and lab works. So, I prayed really hard for a smooth journey with helpful and kind supervisors and friends. And yes, every single person around me had been so supportive and miraculously, I managed to complete my studies in 2 years 10 months. Although I had to take care of my baby boy, suffered a miscarriage, and delivered another baby boy, the journey was actually not so bad. And I know this is all a gift from Allah, and I am truly thankful to Him.
My entourage :)
I have been so lucky for having the best supervisors in the world: Dr. Belal, Dr. Allan, and Professor Karu. They are AWESOME! And of course, my ever supporting Hasben... My personal manpower and spiritual advisor he is. And my parents, whom I dedicate this achievement to. And my Toowoomba friends, always willing to take care of Kimi when I had to do some lab works. This means so much to me: Especially Shasha & family, Kak Das & family, and Kak Hanee & family. And to Zana & family, for adopting Kimi while I was in labour - a very vulnerable time since I was in pain and quite emotional with all the hormones. Also, my indirect support systems: my siblings - WinZie, Am and Yan, my Kosas family especially mama, abah and Annis, my bffs - JuliZac, Zayra, Didi, Lohi, Mui, just to name a few, my lab helpers - Rohan, Ging, Wayne, Mohan, Dr. Francisco, Evans, Antoine & the P9 gang, my UTM referees - Dr. Nordin and Dr. Azlan - each and every one is a blessing from God. Lastly, my PhD babies, Kimi & Afi - could not imagine going through all this without you guys (most probably with less drama, hihi).
The final product :D
Kimi: Ibu, your doctor book...
