A significant event in 1995

My name is Mohd Khalil Al-Haqq bin Mohd Raffali and i blend ice for a living. Ever since i blew out the chance for a computer science diploma back in 2005. I do consider myself as a failure. When i was young, i aspired to be a scientist. I really like science. But i was not a hardworking student i must state. I do not ace exams. I was just an average student. I scored 4 As in the UPSR though, in which it was suprising indeed with the amount of effort i put into it. One thing about the education system back then, they would put the cream of the crops into boarding schools. So the high school was deprived of bright students that could have had effects on average student like myself and others. But then there were some students who refused boarding school to enroll in the national school. The likes of Sherryna, Ungku Fazri, Shahrol Omar etc. really increased the intellectual capacities of the class. One thing i must put into record about Shahrol Omar was an event that could have had a huge impact on my life. It was quite vague but i will recall the way i remember it. In 1995, there were openings for the positions of prefects. The teacher who was in charge of the selection was Pn. Isnayani if i was not mistaken. She teaches math. Shahrol was a new student at the school after a brief stint at Maktab Tentera Di-raja. So i recalled Shahrol and me were being called up during a class. At first i thought i was in some sort of trouble. To my surprise, it was actually a quick selection for a prefect post. Pn. Isnayani had a quick top to toe glimpse of the two of us and made her decision right at the spot! She had chosen Shahrol over me. It was a no brainer because Shahrol was well presented unlike me who was unkempted. Should it have been me, i could have been a different student. I could have been more disciplined. Instead of being a prefect, i ended up a librarian. To be continued...
