Sunday 22 May, 2011 - A day filled with mixed extreme highs and lows..

Yasmin finally started her 2 months course-related job training at an events management company in Alor Star. This is a chance for her to think about future career paths and try out some options first hand, as well as gain insight into the organisation. Hopefully she will gain valuable experience and develop an awareness of professional codes of behaviour in the world of work.

Afternoon... I was taken aback at the contents of a text message I received. The phonecall, which came a few minutes later, was equally depressing.

The drive up to Alor Star was a silent one ... deep in thoughts ...
