See you in Cambridge, Bro!

It came as a great surprise today–Yee Pin got straight A in A-levels and is guaranteed for the admission to Cambridge for law studies!! Well, for those who don’t know Yee Pin, he’s my “bro” (non-biological one though), otherwise known as “Tan Sri Tan” in my chatterbox, and since years ago he has been my best confidant for almost every single topic in this world!

You know, I was simply on the top of the world when I got his message! Just ask Xuan Ni, Gracie or Chong Chyn who were with me at that time. Haha, they must have thought I got some kind of love message when I read the message from Yee Pin. :D

Well, here goes my personal message:

Bro, wish you all the best in your studies... I have never dreamt of us getting that far apart in two different continents of the Earth, and now, the 5 minutes walk separation we have expected is amplified to 15 hours’ flight. However, distance notwithstanding, deep within I still believe in our common desire to be the best in our life, the passion we have always been sharing since we have become close to each other. I know you are going to become a conscientious lawyer in the future; and here I am, dedicated to giving the best to my career too. Do your best, always remember to beat yourself, not the others!

I believe it’s going to be hard when you hit your studies (actually I couldn’t imagine how law students manage their studies at all!), but then, before I end, let’s recite our familiar verses of Mencius... I believe it will always help.
天将降大任于斯人也,
必先苦其心志,劳其筋骨,饿其体肤,空乏其身,
行拂乱其所为,所以动心忍性,增益其所不能
孟子(《孟子·告子下》)

Let’s keep it in mind!


p/s: Just got another news... Jason who’s my childhood friend has got a pretty good result too!! (not sure whether he would be happy to reveal his result here though, so I shall not disclose it) He’s going to Nottingham to study law although he’s still appealing for Warwick. You know what Chin Yaw, I am not sure if you are satisfied with your result (I know you have very high demand of yourself, so you might not be happy with your result yet), but once you get enrolled in the Law course, I am confident that you will do very well because you have got your unbeaten passion for it. So I know you are one step closer to your grand dream, and seriously I think we shall meet up somewhere in Downing Street to discuss your future property location.. :D

Good luck mates. With you guy’s enrolment, it’s pretty much the end of the secondary studies for every single person in our batch. We are all university students now!

Haha, Winson, spread all over on Earth? :D What a good way to say it!

Yee Pin, maybe we are happier than you because you expected it more than we did. Haha... Mat Salleh are not that scary larr, you will always be on par, if not better than them. Just remember to take the chance to brush up your skills, and also learn valuable lessons of life when you are overseas. Sad that I won’t be able to see you again in a year or two...

By the way, next time when you leave a comment here, you don’t have to choose anonymous and type your name in the post itself. Just choose “other” and then type your name in there... It would be more convenient.

Thanks for everything! I am fine and i don't mind ppl knowing my result. ABB, a pretty good result which i am satisfied. I know how much effort that i have put and tat's it! It'd shown! ( but still, i am shocked with my law paper ) But it's over...just be more hardworking and achieve better in unis.

Ur childhood friend,
Jason
