After my Form 5, I went to work in a factory in Taiping. My friend recommended me as her sister was working there too. Initially I cycled to work but later I took the factory bus as the factory was quite a distance away. At the meantime, I applied for teacher's training.
I didn't get the offer so I decided to work in PJ. My brother's friend was working in a company and she recommended me to work there as a clerk. I applied for the teacher's training again. Guess it's my ambition to be a teacher.
While working in that company, I learned shorthand and hope to be a secretary, my second choice.
During that time, I had my first room mate. She's a Christian and we went along well. Few months later, I got a letter offering me a place in a teacher's training college in KL. I was so happy that I resigned from the company immediately. I had to pay back a month's pay.
After I had registered at the college, four of us went to search for a big room and we became room mates. But it didn't last long. We formed into two groups and got ourselves smaller rooms.
After graduating from the college, I was sent to Pasir Mas to serve. There I had a room mate who was also a teacher in another school. After a year, I was sent to Ipoh. Since then, I became Ipoh citizen..
