I got a message from VP Nifarid that I had to go to Universiti Malaysia Kelantan (UMK) for a convocation of the university on PSU behalf. Actually, VP Nifarid supposed to be in the event by himself, but he had assigned by the president to leave for Brunei attending a commencement at Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) on the same day.

I had only a few hours to get ready for leaving to the border. I got his message on the evening of September 13, then I needed to leave for the border on September 14 at 11.00 am. I believe that our life is sometime unpredictable. What will be, will be. We have to be ready for any chances and changes in our life. I have to look at the positive side of life. Don’t be frustrated with something happening into our life. I also believe that behind the constraints or limitations, there are some ‘chances’ to our life. I just took by regalia of Oklahoma State University and a small suitcase and got on the PSU van for the border at the assigned time. I arrived the border at about 2.oo pm. Fortunately, our colleague teaching at UMK was at the Malaysian border to pick me up to Kelantan.

I stayed at Habib hotel, not far away from UMK. On that night, I was invited to join in the Royal Reception Dinner at Kelantan Trade Center. It was the first time in my life that I could witness the Sultan of Kelantan. I didn’t know before that I would have an opportunity to be in the royal dinner.

The convocation was taken place at Kelantan Convention Hall. Also, the ceremony was presided over by the Sultan of Kelantan.
