The best things happen when you least expect it.


KDU 2012.

Honestly, i didn't really expect much. The night before the debate, i was mentally insecure and thought that i was a very stupid girl who can never get things right. Wait, that might still be true, but 
being at KDU for the debate tournament totally made me not care anymore. Last year, i teamed up with Syed and Fattah. This year, my juniors, Hafiz and Rizal, were destined to debate with me. Our goal was to at least break into the Octo Finals. Well guess what happened? We didn't only break, but we broke FIFTH place outta 60+ as well!! Like, WHOAAAAAAAA tibe2 je!?? Suddenly i felt nearly the same emotion as last year, when Sri Ayesha broke 6th place at IIU debate. This year, i jumped up and down when they said "Breaking 5th...SRI AYESHA!". It was a memorable moment. Alhamdulillah. Even though we didn't win, but it showed that we had potential. I was very happy and satisfied, because i got to lead my team twice in the tournament. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? Me? Leading a team? Something I've never imagined. Most of the time, Rizal lead us. But during the Harry Potter motion, it was just my thing. Eight years of being a Potterhead FINALLY proved to be useful in my life. Haha.
 During that debate, a guy from the opposition wanted to debate with me about Harry Potter even AFTER the debate was over, lol. He's officially my Harry Potter buddy. I just don't remember his name, lol. We even won the Octo Final round, but we didn't win the Quarter Finals against Damansara Utama. If we had, then they wouldn't have become the champion of the whole thing. Last year, i was worried i was never going to find a new team that i can work with. Alhamdulillah, i've found it. With more polishing, we'll shine.
Thank you Hafiz and Rizal,  I'm so proud of you guys.
Thank you Fattah and Fakhry, for training us this year.
Thank you Maryam and Iman, for your never-ending support.
Thank you everyone who prayed and wished us the best =)
I love you all.

Other than that, so many memories were created. The MUSLEH debate gang reunited - Sri Ayesha + Al-Amin Gombak + Al-Amin Bangi- and it was just really awesome since there were familiar faces and new, friendly ones too. Maryam from SMI Hidayah hung out with us, and she's awesome! It proves that even though we're all rivals, nothing can stop friendship and fun. 
One of the best tournaments i've ever been to. I can't imagine the future tournaments to be better, but i really hope they will.
Till then, we'll be training to win ;)

  5. Fakhry: arghhhhh i'm glad you didn't hit that car!!Hahahaha xD Awww, ur not just any simple trainer you know. Any simple trainer could make us get up and talk, but YOU made us debate with spirit and passion, good enough for quarter finals. so thank you, fakhry. without you, your support and trainings, we wouldn't have achieved what we did :)
    and hey, what are you talking about??u qualified till FINALS for IIU!That's even more than what we've EVER achieved. And now you're an awesome debater. Happy for you =')
