I am now a postgrad! :)

Alhamdulillah, pray to the great Almighty, I have been conferred with Master's of Philosophy (M.Phil) in Materials Engineering last month. Yay! :)

Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) held it's 56th Convocation Ceremony on 23rd and 24th April 2016 at its main campus in Skudai, Johor. Being a postgraduate, my session was on 23rd April 2016. The prestigious ceremony was honored by its chancellor, the lovely queen of Johor.

The overall experience of attending the convocation was... exhausting! Hahahaha... It was great, but tiring. Maybe adrenaline pumped up too much, due to the excitement, long travel, kids' tantrums (hehehe). My aunty (my mom's sis) was really gracious for having us (my parents, hubby, kids & I) bunk at her house for our 3D2N havoc stay. :) 

On my convocation day, I was actually feeling quite emotional inside the hall. My darling hubby accompanied me from early morning (love u so much!). My parents, kids & aunt's family all came over once the ceremony inside the hall ended. Many thanks to my cousin, Syafiq for the beautiful pics!

The ceremony reminded me of my undergrad convo ceremony, where at that time, both my parents celebrated me inside the hall. My siblings also attended the ceremony then, waited patiently outside the hall at IIUM (my brother, sis-in-law, my 2 nieces, my sis & bro-in-law).

Havoc! Little girl didn't want to turn around for the camera, not-so-big boy throwing tantrum. :p

Can't believe I've finally completed my Masters journey... PhD next?? Hahahaha... Let's cool down for a bit first ya ;)
