I've been thinking to blog about what happened in maktab but I always end up doing nothing.
I guess there's just too many things to adapt in maktab.
Case 1: Room
Last week before I reached maktab, a friend told me:
"Weh, kite kena duduk 3 orang sebilik."
And it really pissed me off and I decided to lepak at my friend's and only return to maktab at night.
We were told that they did dot expect that our cohort has more guys than girls.
Oh crap!!! We are the cohort with lots of guys. U guys saje nak pekena kitaorang kan?
Case 2: Classroom
Second day in maktab, we were asked to go to our classroom.
I was staying at the kaki of Bukit Coombe and I had to climb the stairs to reach my class.
It was a real disappointment when I reached my class seeing no air-cond, chairs and tables.
Maktab never changed over the years and it was the same old problem when I left it two years ago.
Case 3: Rules
Our first day, we had this stupid induction day.
We were all wondering why do we need to have this induction.
And puzzles were put into pieces when people from HEP came in one by one.
But the thing that really made us irritated was when one of them said,
"Kalo nampak rokok bersepah kat asrama, mesti keje budak TEYL."
We were like... WTF!!!
Bajet budak course lain tak merokok je...
As for the baju and everything, it was the same old thing.
But I miss wearing T-shirt and my sweater to class.
One thing that I miss about UUM right now is the freedom that we have had there.
No such thing as "labeling" back in UUM.
But what I can really say about maktab right now is, I think they feel intimidated by our arrival.
Our thinking is broader as we are liberalised when we were in UUM.
As for now, we are surviving and hopefully, the 77 of us will be together until the end of this course.
