The Lantern


In the old days, people often referred to teachers as candles. Well as the time passed, the role of teachers grew more important in universities what with the task to educate the young bright minds of the country.

In short, I'm gonna penned about lecturers this time. Pensyarah. My lantern.

Lemme tell you, the first time I set foot in a uni 6 years back it was so awkward calling the educators 'lecturers'. The word 'cikgu' always slipped our tongue back then. 

Cikgu, manual akaun tu berapa ringgit?

Macam mana nak jawab soalan ni cikgu?

Such a funny memory to recall. In 2007, when I started my diploma I was merely a 17-year-old gal. Simple minded and so naive.

I thanked all the lecturers that had taught me from my diploma days up till the day I completed my degree in Muadzam Shah.  Sincerely, from my heart. Without them, I will not be where I am today. I sure am a naughty student. Thank you so much for putting up with me.

Some lecturers gave massive impacts.

Inspiration.

Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Kampus Seri Iskandar, Perak
Puan Maizura Meor Zawawi
Taught me Auditing during my final semester. Perhaps subjek yang paling membunuh since lots of final semester students have to extend no thanks to this particular subject. She was a former auditor, her methods of teaching was fun. No surprise I always topped my class in this subject. Alhamdulillah. Loved it! I will never forget her advice, 'Don't settled for anything less. You are destined for greatness. I can see it'. *touched*

Puan Siti Nabilah Mohd Shaari
A young lecturer, fresh graduate but never failed to impress us. She graduated first class from UiTM in Bach in Acc (Hons). Even got Anugerah Naib Canselor for both her Diploma and Degree. Sweet!! All that in fast track course, too. Then, she completed her ACCA in such a young age. She got it all! She interned with KPMG. As a student, she wowed us by mentioning KPMG. Very much!! She gave lots of inputs and inspiration.

Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) Kampus Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah
Now let this be a guide for the juniors to choose the lecturers in the future. Keep in mind this list may be biased from my point of view. Teheeee

Encik Azwan Bin Abd Rashid
You guessed it right. He just got to be on TOP of my list. Most female students in my class seems to love him (cc:Shuana). He's the Head of Department, also my FYP supervisor. Off the records, he's the best supervisor ever. Go, go pick him. But make you are able to be independent as he tend to be quite busy. He helps A LOT. Just do your research first, read the materials beforehand. Sometimes the questions he posed is quite intriguing. He will painstakingly reviewed EVERY one of your draft. Ohh.. Am so blessed. He don't mind staying late at the office to help you guys. A father figure.

Encik Ahmad Subhi Bin Muhammad Sidek
If ever you got the option, please do choose him. For real! He taught me 3 subjects already; Audit & Investigation, Internal Audit and Forensic Accounting. He's easy to pleased. To quote him 'I am not perfect. Hence, I do not seek for perfection in your assignments. Just do it to your best ability'. Cool aite? He never posted the carry marks, though. But fear not because he helps student in finals, giving tips and stuffs. To top it off, he also got an ACCA qualification from the UK. *envy*

Dr Norhayati Mat Hussin
A capable woman who is also the Deputy Dean. The best lecturer you could have for Accounting Theory and Practice (ATPB) subject. I kid you not. The way she explained things will make the knowledge register straight into your brain. For real. Nampak sangatlah mudah subjek ini. That is why she deserved the title 'Doctor'. *big round of applause*

Puan Marziana Haji Mohamad
For those who learnt all three taxation subjects with her (Malaysian Taxation I , II and Specialized Tax), you are veeery lucky! Me myself I only met her twice; during Malaysian Taxation II and Specialized Tax. But in her case, do make sure you settle all your tutorials before you went into the class. She's strict. That is for sure. But you can say goodbye to all the headache trying to actually understand taxation principles. You can sense that she knows everything and it gave you confidence, as well.

That's all for now.

I bow my head with respect to these lecturers and all the other lecturers whom I failed to mention be it in UiTM or UNITEN.

My gratitute goes to all of you, my lantern.
