Scrolls and Mortar Board

What do one say to another, who have laboured 5 years to achieve a measure of success in life? Words, are too cheap and incapable of expressing the desired message across. And for the intended recipients, many such words would fall unheard; lost in euphoria and floating on cloud nine, they have no need for words to utter or hear, for the joys illuminated on their faces and the faces of those who greet them, are loud enough.

Waiting in queue to reach the stage with their gowns half floating, their walk across the hall feels more like a glide. Though the moment may be only a few seconds short in reality, to many, it feels like time has stopped still, and the moment cherished for life. This, is their moment of glory.

To several young blogging friends, I can only convey my heartiest congratulations to you via this entry. Sadly, many of you would be too busy now to be browsing the net, what else reading this.

Fatin, Hatta (PN, next year I think), Minci, Yani; I believe all of you will be walking up that stage wearing your gowns and mortarboard to receive your scrolls. SubhanAllah! May Allah s.w.t. bless you and guide you to bigger success in this life, and hereafter. Keep your mind focus on the job that you have dreamed of, and turn it into a vocation if you can. Give your contribution to the society gladly, and do not ever feel it as a pinch. InsyAllah, Alllah s.w.t. will reward you greatly for it.

As I mentioned, words are insufficient. As such, do enjoy the song, old as it may be.

Salam Shah my bro:

Ahh...that moment will always be treasured.I remember it well till this day. My moment was not when Raja Nazrin handed me the scroll(actually its empty,you only get your scroll at the Chancellery office after they have cleared you of your hutangs to the universiti) but when I saw my parent's faces when I walk up to the stage and and after the occassion.There was joy in their faces telling me you made us proud.You made our sacrifices worthwhile.You made our blood,sweat and tears count.That was in their faces.

Congratulations to Minci and gang.

Wa'alaikumusalam Doc,

As I mentioned, words are useless at that point of time...looks, says it all :)

Tang Chancellery office tu, I purposely did not want to mention as tak sedap lak cerita nya nanti, lol!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

hey, i got my Ph.D in a matter of seconds...kihkihh...

ok jokes aside, congrats to the ladies mentioned.

a few days before my spm, i jokingly vowed never to touch a book again. unfortunately it came true. i've never had a chance to further my studies. org kampung kata 'tahap spm je'...

the girls should make full use of what've earned and give back to society what they've learned. the scroll is sure something to be proud of...again, congrats!

Salam kerpie,

Wah! Your PC's out of the hospital already, that's good!

Bro, with due respects to all paper holders, it only hold their names. What's more important, is what is inside the head...and heart.

assalamualaikummmmmm

anak aunty hawa ada di mana???

Fatin said...

Assalamualaikum,

We don't wear mortar board nor we get a scroll on a stage. The graduation ceremony here is so boring cos they use Latin all way through and there's no stage, just a little stool for you to kneel on (but I don't). You get not a scroll but your real certificate and walk out from the building after you receive it. If unluckily your name is in the beginning of the ceremony, you get out of the building early and your parents sitting in there looking at other people while you wait outside for them to come out at the end of the ceremony.

Anyway, congratulation for your friends.

Wassalam.

cakapaje said...

Wa'alaikumusalam mk,

Lor...don't cloud the young people's mind. Even if such statements are true - which they are in a world that's corrupted - rezeki di tangan Allah.

Den kek mano? Kek rumah le! lol! Atau, the 3rd rock from the Sun :)

cakapaje said...

Wa'alaikumusalam Fatin,

Oh! Poor you and the rest of the students in Cambridge. But yes, now that you mentioned it, many of the old schools still stick to their age-old traditions.

Anyway, congratulations to you too. Aren't you supposed to be getting your Masters this year?

Kata Tak Nak said...

I went alone, the wife was back home with a migraine. Last but one batch to get ours from the Raja of Perlis. After all over, came out, no pictures, took off the whole uncomfortable garb and mortar, put them in the basket of my motorbike, went to my brother's canteen, had a drink and went home. Wow! what a graduation, but then again that has always been my style. I like it quiet, without fanfare and to do it alone.
Not a very interesting fella this katataknak eh?

jaflam said...

Salam Shah,
Take this opportunity to congrats all our graduating adik adik. Well done but don't forget it’s the beginning of real life and challenge.

Keep the smart hard work policy and strive for the star in your career now.

cakapaje said...

Salam Cikgu,

What you mentioned makes you a more interesting person than not; you are, as I have been, a Lone Wolf.

cakapaje said...

Wa'alaikumusalam Dato',

On their behalf, I thank you. InsyAllah, in time, they too will read it themselves.

Minci said...

Thank you everybody..
I like to believe that anybody can succeed be they are school smart or street smart..

acciaccatura said...

salam shah,
to fatin, hatta, minci and yani, tahniah! semoga kalian akan menghargai segala yang dipelajari.

cakapaje said...

Salam Minci,

Aaah! One of the proud recipients of the scrolls...I'm sure many are proud and happy for you :)

cakapaje said...

Wa'alaikumusalam Accia,

Aiks? Pada diaorang je ke...den? Hehe...this entry is meant for them, and I thank you on their behalf :)

Fatin said...

I got my MPhil last year alhamdulillah but none of my family members was there like TOKASID cos it's too expensive to make it plus I didn't have enough provision to get them here. InsyaALLAH if I have enough money for this degree, I'll bring them over here. Ws.

Ydiana said...

Salam Shah

I'd like to congratulate all these young adik(s), Fatin, Hatta, Minci, and Yani. Although I don't know you yet, its great that you achieved success in your studies, and soon you'll be braving the 'real' world. Its a jungle out there, but I'm sure you'll win it.

Ok, back to Shah. Finally....I'm off and done with my 'assignment! If I have it my way, I will not post it in my entry today, but a promise is a promise. Its was kind of disastrous! But now I can start breathing and more importantly blogging! Hahaha... :)

cakapaje said...

Fatin,

InsyAllah, I too would like to have my family on a memorable occasion such as this. May Allah s.w.t. grant your prayers.

cakapaje said...

Wa'alaikumusalam ydiana,

InsyAllah, they will get you message.

As for the 'Could It Be Magic', I'm having it on pause to build the buffer; will comment at your page.
