Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan ~ TEST~

Warning!!! my story might be disturbing for those who hasn't taken the jpj test yet.

This is the day. The day of my JPJ test..wahahaha... i'd dreamed about this scary day for weeks. I really hoped that i can pass both tests. When we were in the car this morning.. on the way to the driving school, abah gave me some tips about how to control the car whn the car reached the hill. And i felt quite confident with my self. But it was all back then, before i entered the nhr driving school office.. As i entered the office (located at sec 19) to make my payment (RM 130!!!) i heard two aunts and some kakaks were sharing their stories together and their story was somehow scary! I cant help myself to listen to their experiences..wa....there goes my confidence.

We arrived at Seri Muda test center at about 9a.m and we had to queue in a veeeeeery long queue just to register. Looking at the enormous crowd, i prayed hard, hoping that I will not finish mine at 7 p.m. I was asked to wait at Pondok B until they called my name..There I met two new friends. Nashita, she's 18 and Rizwana, (wana) 19 :) they were really helpful in reducing my nervousness..haha..As we were waiting for our name to be called, we talked about everything.. university life, our feelings, ..and we also talked a lot about our favourite driving instructor Mr Tee. (it turns out that the three of us have the same pak cik garang as our instructor) wakakakaka.... it's good to know that there are actually many people suffering like me..having him as the instructor.

While we were all looking at a Kancil car which is struggling to make a move on the stupid hill, Nashita's number was called. The officer told loudly that the person whose number was called had to move to Pondok C to undergo the bukit-parking-three point turn test first. Then he also called my name. OMG! Suddenly i felt my stomach churned. I'm going to die! I'm scared weh. Luckily I had Nashita to speak with..huhu...While waiting for my turn, i looked at other people..and when i looked this time a lot of people failed the bukit test!!!!! Oh my God this is not happening!!!!!!!!!i shout in my own thoughts..weh giler glabah! Looking at people failing is a very good way to lower your confidence. Perfect..just perfect.

They called my name!! before i had the time to calm down my self.. and manage my stress. NO IT'S MY TURN NOW! Feeling helpless and unconfident, i walked forcingly towards the kancil which seemed new but unfortunately it's not as new as it looks. Wawawa... I opened the door, entered the car and drive the car up the stupid hill. The tyres successfully parked on the yellow line..thank God. I pull my handbreak and the JPJ officer asked me "awk nombor berapa?".

"39" i answered.

"alia nadhirah?" he asked again.

"ye betul" i answered him.

"ok, kalau dah bersedia angkat tangan" he said

i raised up my hand..and started doing what i supposed to do (i think..haha..) to move the car down.. actually i had already sensed that i'm going to fail this test...so...congratulation to my correct sense.. i really failed the bukit test. my failure was caused by my bengongness plus the stupid handbrake which refused to move...and not to mention i was really gubra and unconfident. When I thought that the car is ready to move forward, the car betrayed me by reversing backward (a little ok!) when I pulled the handbreak. "Ya Allah, memang fail la ni" And the ofcourse, the officer proudly told me.. "ok, tarik handbreak tu. kamu fail.. dah turun" aish...geram giler ni.

As I saw many people did the "bukit" test 2 times, i asked the officer. "Knape? Saye baru buat bukit sekali je"

Then the officer answered "Memang sekali je. Org yg buat 2 kali tu sebab mase kali pertama, tayar xnaik kat line 2. Kamu xboleh..tayar kamu dah ok. Dah turun cepat."

And I was like "huh?? aish.....geramnye!"

I signed the form..with kandas on it..cis! and asked the officer again whether i can proceed to do the on-the-road test and he said yes u may..

End of the story of my bukit test..and i went back frustratedly to the Pondok B and waited there for my name to be called.

5 minutes later and Nashita came. She passed the parking test. hoorray for her!! We waited for wana to come and decided to buy some drinks first as there were enormous crowd waiting to be called. Wana also failed at the Stupid Bukit..huhu..so I've a friend here...

While we were waiting endlessly under the pondok, we saw many incidents.. most of the incidents were very disturbing. Let me tell u some ok? The first incident involved a girl and her a stern looking jpj's woman officer. The officer never smile, even once..and her looks give people a warning " dont u ever try to mess up with me! ." I mean it! She's the only heartless person I ever saw in my life.. why?? ok, how can she heartlessly failed a girl just because the girl accidentally hit the divider? AND THE POOR GIRL JUST HAD DRIVEN ONLY ABOUT 50M FROM THE STARTING POINT!!! it was just a small mistake and the divider is very low. The poor girl was asked to stop right away and she was instructed to switch place with the officer..which means that the girl had made a mandatory mistake and failed her test. WHAT?? i cant accept it, if i was that girl.. we watched too many people failed in that woman's hands.The three of us gathered our energy and pray hard with all our might. "ya allah please, please, i DONT want to be tested by her." waaaa, i dont know how to describe my feelings.

At last my name was called at about 12 noon. Lucky for me i didn't get that woman officer. Instead, i got a handsome guy as my examiner. He is a stylo man. huhu.. As I entered I said "Assalamualaikum Encik" just like what farah had taught me with the aim to bodek. He asked "Name sape?"

Again, I told my name. And then did all the six items..u know what they r right? Huhu.. I noticed a bad sign.. he also never smile.."aish ade harapan cam nk kantoi je ni.." this time i refuse to believe my sense..gagaga..."alhamdulillah, xmati enjin..dh la cuak nih" as the car successfully moved i cant help to speak in my own world. The journey went quite well until i reached the second roundabout. Huhu.. the car engine went off as i let go the clutch to soon. huish..this seemed like a BIG TROUBLE MAN!! Stupid me. I was so lucky that the guy didnt ask me to park at the side and switch places. aaaahhh.. i was so relieved! i said "maaf ye Encik" n continue driving happily. Oh, there is still a long journey to go! I woke myself up and continue driving. I'd only passed thru 1/10 of the whole route and already i'd made a dangerous mistake. oh no..sigh..

Along the journey, the handsome but heartless officer kept sneering at me. Cis cis cis!!!!!!

Among his sentences "Gear kereta ni ade brape?"

I didnt get what he wanted to say and just answered "5, nape??"

haha..I was driving using the third gear at 40 km/h and was too scared to change the gear into four. Again, another mistake..lalala....

Alhamdulillah, I managed to reach the finishing point.. without switching places :)
My heart was beating like crazy, will i fail again???

ALHAMDULILLAH I PASSED YEAY. as i signed the evaluation form I cant help from glancing at the box..hehe..

here are the comments written on my form=
guna isyarat lampu/tangan=tindakan tidak sempurna
guna brek kaki dan tangan dengan betul=brek tangan lemah
mggunakan gear sesuai mengikut kelajuan=tidak lancar, gear 3 dan 4 tidak sesuai

above all i managed to get 17/20..and also 2 new friends :)

now i have to learn very hard to pass my bukit test.

And the flower blooms..

Crawling among the human, here I am. Trying to find my stand, here I go. Well well, it is quite hard to begin with. The Minggu Mesra Siswa, which is the first university week for all student was quite shocking for me. I never thought that university life would be this hectic. Finishing my high school was quite easy compared to this, where there are thousands of things to be done in my daily schedule. Not just assignments and tests preparations, but also the laundries and daily chores too. All had to be done by myself. Tired, tensed, all feelings are mixed together, not counting the feeling of homesick yet. I am sure that all of you had experienced the same thing as I was. Sometimes, when you feel the tiredness makes your spirit fades, all works turns to a big burden of stones which you would never be able to carry. Never been away from home.. Oh, I really feel like quitting!

“No, no, no. I am not that weak. I can do it, no matter how!” That was the chant that I always repeat again and again. If everyone else could, why couldn’t I? Praying hard to stay strong, I climb up the hill with all my might. As the wheel of time spins, Alhamdulillah, I started to enjoy my university life. The classrooms which used to have gloomy atmosphere, the library which two months ago seems boring, and the lake scenery which had given me some freak doesn’t look like they used to be. By right, they sure look inviting to me now. I love going to classes and listening interesting lectures, enjoy reading expensive and high quality library books, and also go kayaking at the lake whenever I feel like to.

The best thing of all, I really had gotten myself a new family! The close relationship among the classmates had really given me the comfort and the sense of belonging. I am now a family member of UITM Melaka! Of course, there are tonnes and tonnes of challenge that one has to face in their life. As long as a person is breathing, he or she could not get away from having problems. What makes successful people different from losers are the way they handle their problems. To be a strong student, one should have the capabilities to be self-reliant, self-motivated, and self-sufficient. Now I have realised that to adapt yourself, no matter wherever you are, all you need to do is just open your heart and broaden your minds towards new changes and possibilities. The power is actually in your hands.

…And the flower started to bloom,
Showing its proud petals,
Confident of its own strength,
It definitely will give the brightest shine..


Leadership among students

"Leadership is a process by which a person influences others to accomplish an objective and directs the organization in a way that makes it more cohesive and coherent." (Burns, 1978). Every group, organization, and country has a leader which proves how important the leader’s role is. Clearly, no one could deny the role of being a leader at least once in a lifetime. As students, with tonnes of assignments and projects to be done, having a dependable leader is a must. Students are the future leaders of Malaysia; so, each of them must own good leadership qualities. Leadership in students may be defined clearly through the leadership style, criteria of a good leader, and also the role of leadership among students.

Firstly, there are three styles of leadership that can be applied by students' leader. The first technique is authoritarian leadership which uses autocratic system. This type of leadership produces less creative result as the leader makes the decision alone with little or no ideas from the others. The most effective leadership technique is participative leadership which utilizes democratic concept. The results from this style of leadership are more significant as the decision is made through collaboration between all members,(www.eskimo.com, April 2000). Researchers found that the third style, the delegative leadership was the least dynamic among all. The leader almost does not give any guidance towards the group members and hands the power of making decision to the members. However, this method can be really effective if the group members are knowledgeable than the leader. Students can choose which leadership style to usedepending on the group conditions and capabilities.

Secondly, there are several criteria that a student should possess to be a good leader. A high-quality leader must always be enthusiastic and passionate while doing the job. These positive attitudes will eventually motivate the other members to gain enthusiasm as well. Abraham Maslow felt that human needs were arranged in hierarchical order, (Goble, 2004). As a leader, one must understand those needs such as encouragement and human basic needs, as they are powerful motivators. The second criteria is the leader must be able to set a good example to his followers. For instance, if the group leader is lazy, the other members will tend to be lazy as well. Anexcellent leader works hard or harder than everyone else and thinks creatively different from the others. "Good leaders are made, not born," (Bennis, 1989). An outstanding leader usually has the desire to keep on learning in order to improve the leadership skills. Example of a good leader which gives significant impacts towards the world isProphet Muhammad (p.b.u.h.). On the other hand, the strong leadership and spirit of Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj had brought Malaya towards independence. Therefore, to be a reliable leader, students ought to acquire some leadership skills.

Lastly, leadership plays an important role in students' life. Students need a fine leader as guidance to teach them on how to make the most effective decision and be confident in their own self (Bacal, 2007). Every teacher is actually a leader for students and eventually a good teacher will be able to mould and develop leadership qualities in each of the students as well. In addition, leadership also plays an important role in the process of making proper organization and work delegation especially in group project. An efficient group leader will make sure the tasks are divided equally among all members thus making work progress smoothly producing premium results. To boot, having a considerate leader which practices good leadership skills will ensure that there will be no argument or emotional conflicts between the members. Hence, students' hectic life and study burden can be lessened by having a good leader as their work conductor.

"Leadership is not a science, you can never be sure whether you will reach your goal," (Orans, 1997). The democratic leadership style is the most effective style that can be applied by student leaders. Leadership means colossal responsibilities and only people who own the credibility and never quit learning could be a good leader. Lastly, leadership plays an important role in students' life as it helps to make the students life more organized and less complicated. Without proper guidance, students will feel lost. Leadership might seem like a simple word, but it sure carries an intricate meaning. Students certainly have to pull out a lot of efforts and dig out some courage in order to be a successful leader.
