NoGAPS stands for National Gathering of Pharmacy Students. It's an annual event and this year my uni is the host. It's a 4-day event involving pharmacy students from almost all universities/colleges in Malaysia which offers pharmacy course. And for the first time, I had to be a facilitator. Punyalah tak rela.
The registration day arrived and to my fear, only few group members turned up. 3 couldn't make it. 1, due to technical error, she was in another group. 1 is a MyPSA member and apparently was an invited speaker and moderator so he didn't join us much. So 7 out of 15. I was well, slightly, who wouldn't be, demotivated :P Then another one arrived justtttt before the registration period ends. Then another one arrived justtttt when the ice breaking starts. And one more arrived on the second day. Alhamdulillah.
|Day 1 - Day 4|
They are such lovely people and in contradictory with my paksarela feeling having to be a faci earlier on before NoGAPS started, along the way till the end of NoGAPS I just feel lucky to be a part of my group - Nice Neisseria. Truly gonna miss spending time with them, pulling through the Pharmtastic Race, accompany them practicing for an assigned task till 2 AM etc. There's always hikmah for everything and I guess through being the faci, Allah gave me the chance to meet such beautiful people - Archanaa, Haziq, Winnie, Yeoyo, Hidayah, Sazza, Shima, Jessica, Wei Jiun, Arthini.
There were much more memorable stuffs about NoGAPS. The 'rombongan cik kiah' with fellow committees to pasar malam Sungai Dua, eating laksa in tau fu fah's container, the encounter with a cat who jumped onto my study desk from the window, being that particular someone's roomie, encounter with Kak Ainina after so long, nasi briyani sedap during community outreach project and so many more including falling on stage during a theatre performance during Gala Night because I tripped over a friend's leg, so glad the lights were off at that moment =.="
All in all, am truly glad to be part of NoGAPS 2013 as a committee. Learned much. Experienced much. Breaking walls, building bridges are always fun :) May Allah guide us all in every step we take, may Allah make us all those who pleases Him in everything we do, may Allah bless everyone.
