First and foremost, Alhamdulillah, after being in the technical organising team of WOW! 2012 for more or less 5 months, the programme went WOW-somely! Syukran Ya Allah. :D
After years of being a participant in various programmes here and there, this year I was placed and provided a chance by Allah to be in the organising team. Indeed, I've learnt a lot in being a facilitator and a committee member. Every experience counts. Indeed! Alhamdulillah. :D
Frankly speaking, I wasn't having the optimum confidence earlier on in the programme. I actually had thoughts on focusing only on my job in the promotion & multimedia team aka photographing and documentations. Eventually, I managed to pull through, doing partial job for both! Hee. :)
Not to mention the exhaustion. But, I loved what I was doing, so tiredness wasn't a big matter. DSLR seemed to be an obsession of mine, that never seem to disappear. Once in hands, it's uncontrollable. I'd be glad if you could buy me one for my next birthday. Because, I'm saving up for a car in Taiping, so DSLR would be great in addition to my gadgets. I want a Canon EOS 1100D! No Nikons please, they are super heavy. *exaggerated demands* Hihi. :P
After all, we are doing this for Allah, aren't we? Constantly, refresh and renew our niyah (intentions), and may Allah bless every niyah we make. Alright, lets stop blabbering and lets get to the main point!
In 4 days 3 nights, much knowledge were gained and shared. The thing that struck me the most was the knowledge I assumed I had, but in the end, it was never enough. Endless learning process of life! Huh! As of what Allah mentioned in Surah Al-Kahf, Verse 109 :
"Say, "If the sea were ink for [writing] the words of my Lord, the sea would be exhausted before the words of my Lord were exhausted, even if We brought the like of it as a supplement."We had talks from Ustaz Hasrizal (Islam Heritage or Choice? & Fiqh Overseas), Ustaz Ridha (The Ambassador), Ustaz Amin (Open Your Eyes), Ustaz Dasuki (Heart Clinic), Brother Shah Kirit (Comparative religion), YB Dr. Halimah Ali (Excellence) and not forgetting the student forum panelists such as Brother Amin, Hazman Baharom (student in University of Manchester), Amalina Zulkiflee (student in University of Southampton). Of course, these are not only the activities in WOW! 2012! :D
Apart from being briefed in talks about life challenges overseas, students were also exposed to the physical and mental games that involves the fiqhs of travelling. For example, the khuf, the wuduk, the solat, the qiblah, halal and haram foods, and etc. Further more, participants were divided into respective groups that focuses on the places/universities they are heading to, and representatives from each universities shared particularly everything the participants wanted to know about the places they are heading to.
But, wait a second, what's so WOW about WOW! 2012???
Let the pictures do the talking! :D

P/S : Tiredness did not managed to bring my spirit down. My resolution after this programme is to widen my knowledge and istiqamah in participating in events like this, not forgetting maximising the Holy Ramadhan too! Insya-Allah. Amiin. :D
