Today people see me as a person who excel in my studies. I am currently a phd student in USM. The person I want to thank most is not myself, not my parents, not my school teacher, but is my neighbour, an Indian family. When I was young, my family economy is not that good, we have no money for tuition, and my parents were busy and have no time to monitor our study. Seeing me and my sibling roaming around the neighborhood not doing our homework everyday, she asked my mum to let us tuition at her home (she was a teacher).. my mum hesitate because we have no money but she say it’s free. She said “I saw the potential in your kids, and hope it will not be wasted”.. and we went to tuition there for free for years until our economy condition gets better. I can feel that she teaches with her true heart, she make sure i did my homework everyday, she even ask me to sit and do my homework at her home while she cooks dinner for her family.. back then, as you know kids sometimes just lazy to go tuition, she purposely come to my house to remind me to come tuition..she will shout from outside “Ah Ching, mari tuition, jangan tidur”… till that extend. Today, me, my sister, my brother all excel because of her.. i really really appreciate what she has done for us.. no racial barriers whatsoever.. just pure love. I will not be today of it’s not because of you. Thank you.
