Pre: Together-gather Happy 6th Anniversarry

We have known each other ever since our college days. That was around the year 1995, when we were both doing our Freshman and Sophomore years in a small college in Kuantan. Both of us were doing the same major. However, at that particular time, we only known the existence of each other. Meaning that, there are not even a single conversation came across us. Senang kata, time tu memang tak berkawan la. Both belongs to different groups, ada common friends tapi tak pernah berkawan.

Year 1997 economic crisis seriously has big impact on us. We were among the unlucky who didn't got the chance to further our studies in US. Sure ingat sampai biler2...

Both of us then continued our studies in PPP-UiTM. We were in the same class. That was somewhere in May 1998. We officially became a couple end of February 1999. Skip the zaman percintaan, it was more or less the same experience with other students. Pergi library, tengok wayang, makan2...

April 2000, we finished our studies and started looking for work. Our 1st employer was a solution provider company, situated in Tmn, Tun. Yup! we worked in the same company. Mrs wifey got the job and dragged mr hubby to join as well. May 2000, we were both then sent to be based in Conakry, Republic of Guinea, West Africa. 1st job, posting overseas. Tak dpt belajar ke US, pergi kerja di Africa pun jadi la... It was a greaaATTT experience. Hidup di negara yg mundur, rakyat masih ramai yg hidup miskin. We gained a lot of working experience with this company. Limited resouces, semua kena buat sendiri. From angkat kotak2, install OS/softwares, buat inventori, minutes meeting, scripting, printing, etc...

August 2000, we went for a company trip in Morocco. Tak jauh, same continent, about 5 hrs flight from Conakry. Tour, sightseeing, and shopping in Casablanca, Rabat, and Fez. Our 1st jln2 overseas.

February 2001 was when we finally decided to seek for new experience, new job. Backed for good in Malaysia. On the way back, we made a stop in Paris. We arrived early in the morning at Charles De Gaulle Int. Airport. Together with us was a family we knew in Conakry (also leaving for good).

Together-gather we extended our journey to London. Stayed in London for 4 days. Sempat la jenjalan and covered few famous attractions in London. Sang "London bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down..." while we were on the bridge taking pictures, boat cruised along Thames river, shopped in Oxford st and Harrods, and of coz tak lupa tried the black cab, double deck bus, and subway.

Then we flew back to Paris, and stayed for another 4 days. Jenjalan lagi, pi Eiffel Tower, Louvre museum, notre dame and tak lupa shopping :D. That time, France was still using French franc, much lower currency rate compare to current Euro. We also had the chance to have our 1st Disney experience in Paris Disneyland.

March 2001, safely backed in Malaysia. Home sweet home...
