Unforgettable Experience Essay

An Unforgettable Experience Essay

Frederick Douglas has rightly said: "If there is no struggle, there is no progress." The life of a person is full of experiences, but sometimes an experience becomes unforgettable for him and changes his life forever. Something like this was happened with me when I was 15-year-old.

My parents wanted me to become a doctor while I had interest in engineering. Both my father and mother were doctors and wanted to see their son as their successor. They were very upset because of my lack of interest and bad performance in medical subjects.

My parents used every method to develop an interest in me for medical subjects but remained unsuccessful. They used to teach me and spend many hours daily. They tried to find ways to make these subjects a fun for me. Unluckily, none of their techniques worked. No matter how hard I tried, I could not develop an interest for these subjects. I usually found questions of biology as an unpleasant and frustrating struggle. I was doing very well in other subjects, so I began to hate and feel anxious about medical subjects.

My parents were really very sad and talked about how they could change my mind. One day I was just outside their bedroom when I heard they were talking about me. My mother was weeping and saying that she had a dream of seeing his son as a doctor. That was the moment which changed my mind. At that time I decided that I would become a doctor. Yes, I wanted to be an engineer, but nothing was important for me than the tears of my mother. Sometimes we do things for other people's wishes.

I began taking interest in medical subjects. For me, it was very difficult to get a command on these subjects because I had never taken interest in them. When I was a high school student, I was very weak in biology and till my high school studies I had never got good marks in this subject. It is very difficult to take interest in a subject which actually you don't like. But I worked hard. I...

Everyone have their own unforgettable moment, including me. I have many unforgettable moment. One of it is the moment I went to my grandparent’s house at Terengganu with my family a couple years ago. Terengganu is the place where nature embraces heritage. There are many wonders of Terengganu and many things to explore. Actually, my father did not plan to take us for a walk at there. But he did when my siblings persuade him to. Luckily, our persuasion was succeeding.

Before we depart to my grandparent’s house, we pack our stuff first as usual. I brought my hat and sunglasses along with me. My father always told us to minimize our stuff when we want to go to his hometown. He does not like so many bags in his car. However, I just brought along the unnecessary things as long as my bag has an empty space. The journey to go there took about six hours. On the journey, I saw plenty of palm oil trees, lake and greenery forests.

We arrived at our grandparent’s house in the evening. They greeted us with an open arm. After we had kept our stuff, my grandmother invite us to eat lompat tikam, che mek molek and kuih akok. My father really loves the kuih akok. I remembered that he always buy it in the fasting month. Then we take a walk along Batu Buruk beach at Kuala Terengganu. The beach has white sands and swaying casuarinas living behind the shore, like a loyal friend to the waves. I played kite with my siblings, riding a horse and soak my legs in the water at the seaside.

The next morning I went to Terengganu State Museum complex. The museum was acclaimed to be the largest museum in South East Asia. There are many century-old artefacts and artworks representing the state’s rich cultural and heritage. It houses the original Inscripted Stone of Terengganu, with religious decree inscription, which proves the acceptance of Islamic teachings in the state well before the rest of the peninsular. It took hours to round all the part in the museum because it has many wings.

In the evening, I went to Tengku Tengah Zahrah Mosque or more commonly called Floating Mosque. It has a unique design which is built on a floating platform, giving a floating feel from far away. The mosque is built on the estuary of Terengganu River by one of the prince in Terengganu state. Combining both modern and Moorish architecture design, the mosque symbolizes the innovation and modernisation in the state. Constructed with a lake surrounding it, much like a moat, the mosque is popularly referred to as the Floating Mosque. In the evening, the sun shines on the mosque, turning the building into a golden colour while the cooling breeze blow from the South China Sea.

On the next day, I went to Redang Island. Redang Island is indeed one of Malaysia’s most idyllic islands. This tropical paradise offers pearly-white sandy beaches, sparkling clear seawater, lovely sunrises and spectacular marine life. Its marvellous marine fish varieties, turtles and huge range of coral reefs make it a wonderful diving spot and its diverse coral species are said to be among the best in the world. I enjoyed swimming and snorkelling. The lion’s share was when I could see the variety of fish when I snorkelling. It was pretty awesome!

I also went to Sekayu Waterfall. The crystal clear and cold water that flow from Sekayu and Tersat River and the beauty of the mother nature all around was so relaxing. The place was relaxing my mind and body. We brought our towels and spare cloths when going there. My family and I hiked the hill until the waterfall to get the best treat and view. The tired way to hike the hill was worth when we enjoying the clear and cold water.

Before we go back home, my family having time to drop in Payang Market to shopping. It is located by the Terengganu River. It is a favourite destination of tourists as this combination of a wet market and shopping arcade sells interesting local handicrafts like batik, brassware, brocade and songket alongside fresh local produce like fruits, vegetables and fish, or even the local delicacies such as keropok lekor, sata, sago and others. My mother bought silk cloth and batik; my father bought batik shirt, keropok lekor, sago, sata and budu; my siblings bought souvenir and I bought orange batik shirt. At the market, we can get the best price if we know how to haggle. The market is quite big and jams. Many people came there. There are also have trishaw, also known as tricycle rickshaw or pedicab is undeniably one of the unique attractions in Terengganu. Most of the tourists will be amazed on the efforts of decoration put on the trishaws.

After we done our shopping, we packed our things and go back home. I shake my hands with my grandparent before we are leaving. They really hope we will always go back there. My siblings wave our hands through the car sunroof as we are leaving the house to say goodbye. We had such a whale of time going back to the state where my father was born. I hope I will always go back there and go to the other places we did not go yet.
