Sering berpindah-randah

Being in a family with 11 siblings was not easy. I grew up watching friends going on a vacation while I can only hope to visit nearest mall during the weekends. Back then I always get sooooooo excited when my dad treats us KFC once in a few months. We had to move quite often from one house to another as both of my parents work hard to make ends meet. So my childhood was a mixed of different neighbourhood. I was always late for school because my parents had to send us to 3-4 different schools.

Cemburu kawan dan handphone

As a child, I’ve always wanted more and was jealous of how people can easily get what they wanted. “Best haritu mak aku bagi aku phone baru sbb dpt 6A untuk PMR. Hg dapat 8A PMR mesti hadiah lagi best kan?” I just smile at him without answering the question. I was struggling a lot with Biology in highschool and hoping to ask my dad if I could go to extra tuition. I didn’t have the heart to ask him because I know the money is better spent on my younger siblings.

Kamu sorang je belum bayar yuran

One morning in English class, I was asked the question that I already anticipated. “Luqman, cuma tinggal kamu sorang je belum bayar yuran sekolah. Bila boleh bayar eh?” I knew I can’t ask it from my parents because my younger siblings also need it for their school fees. I needed to find a way so I started to save money from selling shirts in my school.

Nak KFC tapi bersyukur walau hanya ada telur dan kicap

When I reached 16, my life perspective changed. I used to hate waking up for school but when I realised they are people who didn’t have proper education on the other side of the world, waking up at 6 in the morning wasn’t that hard. I used to cry because I wanted to eat KFC but started to feel grateful when there’s “nasi + telur + kicap” on my plate. I used to complain how I never have my own room but started feel grateful as a teenager because there’s roof up on my head.

Kini duit cukup untuk diri sendiri, siap boleh bagi mak dan ayah

As a result of being grateful, now I’m my way to London, pursuing my degree under Petronas. The best thing is, not only I have more than enough money for myself, I can also give some back to my family. Alhamdulillah. Thanks @Petronas for giving me this opportunity. Most importantly, thanks to both of you.

Had you given me everything I wanted back then, I wouldn’t have everything I have now.
