I couldn’t afford to write a post a day especially about my internship journey at the Marine Aquaculture Institute or well-known as FRI (Fisheries Research Institute) Pulau Sayak, Kota Kuala Muda – no matter how eager I am to share and write about it every day. Life is hectic, and I’m doing well here. Pretty well but boredom – yes, very much even it was just only a week since I started my internship. Seemed like I’m doing the same thing each day due to the fact that I’ve to retain the surrounding quality of lobster phyllosoma (lobster’s larvea). They are super fragile and really need attention and love! Haha. I pray for the three months to pass like a meteor; beautiful and fast.
There are six more students from UNIMAS that are doing their internship at the same FRI (different department), Alhamdulillah at least I’m not all alone surviving around the men. I wonder why there is no woman worker – excluded the cleaner and office-people; is it too rough for a woman to work there? Met new friends and also the Fadh et al. who are a-year younger from us but have a lot of knowledge and experiences! Proud of them! Oh by the way I met someone who looks very similar to AMIL and SR. 98% similarity! I could never run from the shadows even I’d come to that edge of the world.
There’s no difference of choosing intern place at Sarawak and here at my hometown; no difference because we couldn’t get any holiday even it is Friday and Saturday! It means my dream to return home every single week is just left as ashes. Fly away and disappear. Hopeless dream. The reason is acceptable – because we are working on aquaculture-things, they are living organisms and need food every day. We just need to punch the card in, give them food, exchange the water, monitor its quality, and the goal reached.
The best thing during this period, well, it goes to the ocean! It wins over everything, such a beautiful view I swear. Whenever we arrived there so early (we’re always the earliest human being stepping into the building, haha), we will sit in a line facing the sea and listen to the hypnotic ocean wave. It is lovely to have an ocean right beside the work place. It is a best on go therapy.
I just took a two-day leaves. It is not what I’m supposed to do especially in the first week of intern. But it is holiday in Kedah and I promised to my parents earlier to return home this week. After this, I have to work even on the weekend. I’ll be there like a missing person and working like there’s no tomorrow. Haha.
So, how was your day? It has been a while..
Pray for me so that I can pass through all these successfully. Pray so that everything will turn to be like a meteor, pass in speedy- elegantly like a meteor.
