Morning dew has always left me wrapped in layered T-Shirts and thick Santa socks. If I awake enough, a cup of Rooibos Vanilla Tea would warm me while I enjoy the white cloudy hills and frosty bits. It’s beautiful and cold (not going to lie). I learned a new language, sat for three different levels of exams and left my home at the age of 31 to seek new adventures. It sounds crazy and unbelievable right? I did too, even right at this moment. It has been such a wild ride but I’d take that chance anytime, any day. Starting from the bottom again, being absolutely clueless about most of the things and not being able to express myself properly should make me super nervous and scared, but so far, it has been fun. Learning new things are exciting since there is no time limit for new experiences and additional knowledge. Though the food (my guilty pleasure) here is incomparable to our beloved Malaysia, I found new gems that I am grateful for: my colleagues and my boss (super duper nice and I’m lucky), my schoolmates, my teachers, my housemates and the people in Cochem. Helpful and understanding – those words describe them the best. InsyaAllah everything will be fine and with God’s will, all the hard work will pay off. With that, I’d like those who worry about taking the first step, to take a deep breath and gather your courage because it’ll be worth it. Signing off to more brighter and warmer days, Nena Yusoff 🙂
