last night, I was touched by a statement from my friend.
we went for interview and our instructor will assess us based on a long list of officer's qualities. spent about half an hour in the meeting room, I was the only Navy, and the only Sergeant. I scored maximum for sports achievement, the other columns mostly slightly above average. He tested us on military knowledge and leadership. Then we did public speaking on our role models in life.
A friend of mine said :
"my role models are my mum and dad". everybody started laughing, it sounded like a big joke.
"my dad is not highly educated but he successfully sent all the 9 of us to school despite earning low income by selling nasi lemak. "
my father said "although I'm stupid, I showed u the way to success"
"now that I'm studying in this university, I have them to thank."
"walaupun aku bodoh, aku tunjukkan kau jalan"
a very simple speech, but deeply impacted everybody in the room. love need no intelligence, it comes from a sincere heart.

UPNM cadets, always full of adrenaline and aggression. Sarjan Jasmi was telling a friend of his "don't look at all this cadets sweet talk with their girl friends, they can be very fierce especially during war dance."
