Holding on to the pledge to ‘๐™‡๐™ž๐™ซ๐™š ๐™๐™๐™š ๐™๐™†๐˜พ ๐˜ฝ๐™ง๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™’, 6 OGA Committee Members led by its Deputy President Tg Sh Nasariah Syed Ibrahim aka Kak Nas, conducted a half day Leadership programme at the Movenpick, KLIA on 25th March 2022 starting from 9 am.

137 TKC SPM 2021 candidates who call themselves ‘๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ƒ๐€๐‘๐ˆ๐”๐’’ participted. They were immensely engaged with special sharings on sharpening skills, character building, key learnings and lessons learnt from their past 5 years being in a distinctive educational institution. Appreciating the values instilled and making sure that the great gift of the many opportunities given are shared for the benefits of others as they moved onto another phase of life – harnessing potentials at the varsity and later entering into the workforce as Malaysia’s future leaders.

The 4.5 hours segment included special focus on preparing Darius girls for educational sponsorship interview opportunities which should take place once the SPM results are out. Nailing and connecting dots to the competencies they actually would possess from their day to day experience in TKC, actually made them more confident in facing any situations. (We should note that these girls were part of the MCO Covid situation, guarded by SOP, closely bonded to only the TKC teachers. ) We had the girls in stitches when both Ayush, VP Social & Welfare and myself spontaneously whipped up a role play of ‘a No No scenario in the interview room.’

Dr Ayush, Dr Hani O, Fiza and Kak Pudy seamlessly added more impact from energiser fillers of dances and songs. Motivatioanal epilogue of Faizal Tahir’s ๐™‚๐™š๐™ข๐™ช๐™ง๐™ช๐™ ๐™…๐™ž๐™ฌ๐™– and Ayu Damit’s ๐™ƒ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™ฎ๐™– ๐™™๐™ž ๐™ˆ๐™š๐™ง๐™˜๐™ช had to be played twice by demand!

Wholesome approaches on academic excellence and personal qualities anchoring to Quran and Sunnah teachings were drilled in an engaging and fun-learning manner.

The leadership program ended at 1.30 pm with an utmost sense of gratefulness as it was the first time ever, we had to deliver within a half day compared to the standard 2 days 1 night a few years ago.

Bonda Pengetua and PIBG gave thumbs up to explore as the same for the teachers and fifth formers 2022. Another important milestone and target for us to achieve before the year ends.

Kakak Kakak Facilitators took the time for their ’40 winks’ after lunch , while a few of us took time for an outing to Mitsui for a tea feast and more importantly, feasting for the eyes before rushing for shower and dressing up for dinner.

The evening segment , a masquerade gala was such a great treat and came intrinsicly as loads of Happy Pills for us.

The Masquerade grad night theme chosen was simply brilliant and on point.

The most spectacular sight as we entered the grand ballroom was to a throng of Darius gilrs transformed to princesses standing at both sides of the red carpet to welcome VVIPs and other guests.

Everything looked so so right; infact near perfect. They were adorn with gowns by the likes Zantoi, Radzwan Razwil, Bernard Chandran, Jovian just to name a few.

We were all teary eyed listening to the speeches by the very capable and dedicated Organising Committee Chairman and Deputy to the YDP of TKC PIBG , the much admirable and dynamic Bonda Pengetua , our awesome OGA President who had rushed in from official commitments in KL and Miss Farhana Firdaus, Darius’ Batch Rep. The highlight of OGA president’s speech was the automatic OGA membership for them to honour as the 75th MGCTKC batch.

We were then entertained by special performances from the Darius girls.

The YDP PIBG proudly shared with me that the girls could only strategise their amazing performance of “High School Musical & kPop dance” only the night before as their Add Math, the last of SPM papers ended late afternoon. These they executed with immense grace and in unison.

The genre of the younger TKC generations’ in terms of choice of performance may not be the same as earlier times but the strong camarederie and willingness to breakthrough fears never deterred obviously.

To be role models of utmost ready, willing and abled Kakak Kakak OGA, 4 of the Leadership Program Fascilitators went on stage to perform a “4 Dara” traditional dance that hyped up the event even more. Kudos for great sporting spirits my dear team mates though its unquestionable, expected and vis a vis our DNA by itself. The dancing Specialist Doctors, Lawyer and Accountant package of brains, beauty and always ‘go break a leg’ team mates, I super love along with the other beloved OGA Leaders, Committee Members and also Ika our Admin Executive who have been tirelessly working and supporting this noble cause.

The performance highlight was also unforgettable with the presence of Malaysia’s new top artist, Naim Daniel.

With his beautiful singing and respectful persona,
even the ‘ever young’ us, screamed in awe as he entered the hall and rendered a great performance.

Not at all surprising eh as we also must keep on living the TKC Brand through our life-long habits of Old Girls wanna have fun. Always and forever. Probably the best kept elixir secret to preserve and maintain our youth and sanity.

The memorable evening ended by midnight and we could not stop thanking The Almighty for such a safe and smooth execution of our tasks to execute the annual TKC Leadership Program by OGA, especially this time with MCO restrictions and SOP’s.

Nothing happens by coincidence as it is all by His divine plans. Alhamdulillah many times over.

I have to again record our highest appreciation to TKC Teachers, PIBG and parents of Darius girls who tirelessly made the morning and evening events possible. We could see their dedication, commitment in planning and funding up to the smallest details really really had borne the fruits of success. A stellar success story setting a very high benchmark indeed.

Darius girls are most lucky to have a strong support system from the various parties mentioned from day 1 in TKC am sure.

To Darius girls. …..this is especially written on behalf of Kakak Kakak OGA… from the heart….a very happy and blessed heart…. on this lovely Sunday morning, 27 March 2022…..

Baru semalam rasanya kita sambut salam kasih sayang

kekentalan semangat, kegigihan usaha, riang tawa dan keutuhan jatidiri mu membakar semangat kami wahai adik-adik yang amat kami kasihi

raut wajah comel dan keceriaan anak-anak remaja menggamit memori perjalanan masa yang pernah kami lalui suatu ketika dahulu

mungkin situasi dan jarak usia kita agak jauh berbeza tetapi kita tetap sama wahai adik-adik kami

mungkin cita-cita kita juga tak sama lakaran perancangan nya wahai puteri-puteri Darius kami

mungkin liku-liku kehidupan kita juga lain ceritera nya wahai srikandi-srikandi harapan bangsa kami

jangan sesekali lupa akan pesanan kakak- kakak di sebuah pertemuan di hari Jumaat yang mulia itu

jangan sedetik pun adik-adik alpa akan peranan mu di alam dunia ini

genggam erat ikrar keramat

dalam banyak banyak remaja yang ada, Allah telah memilih 137 orang kamu untuk berada di institusi pengajian teratas di dalam carta negara

banyak peluang telah kamu raih dalam penat dan jerih

bermula dari umur yang muda keterampilan dan ketajaman minda mu telah diasuh dan diasah

pelbagai rintangan kamu harungi dalam kegetiran pandemik global yang menyelubungi alam sejagat ini

yakini dan ketahuilah bahawasanya kesemua itu adalah anugerah Ilahi buat mu adik-adik kebanggaan kami

rujuklah pada Al Insyirah yang penuh hikmah dan makna andai masih ada keraguan

Firman Dia diulang-ulangi tentang bagaimana tiap kesukaran itu dijamin akan ada kemudahan

sujud syukur kami kepada mu Ya Allah

– kerana Engkau memberi kami peluang untuk bersama anak-anak gadis ini dalam kekangan; walau hanya sekelumit waktu sahaja

-berkongsi ilmu, berbincang, berjenaka dan bersama- sama berlinangan air mata dalam penuh rasa tawadhu’ dan kehambaan terhadap diri Mu

– kerana dari mereka juga kami kami yang lebih dewasa ini dapat dan tetap mempelajari sesuatu

– kerana dalam perancangan implementasi program ini kami juga dapat bersama-sama bertafakur mengingati akan kebesaran Mu jua

kami tetap berpegang akan kata-kata pujangga bahawasanya
di mana bumi dipijak
di situ juga langit dijunjung

kami juga akur akan
kaya budi kaya lah masyarakat
Silaturrahim dan keakraban pasti membawa berkat

buat sebuah kolej ulung, mulia dan berjasa itu pula

dalam menyambut usia mu yang ke 75 ini

terpahat sejuta memori
terungkai pelbagai kekusutan
termeteri beribu janji

moga-moga segala niat dan tujuan untuk kami menabur bakti kepada pelajar pelajar mu diberkati oleh Nya

moga-moga segala usaha- usaha menjadi amal ibadah yang bermanfaat dan berpanjangan seperti yang telah Engkau janji kan

tiada sebarang kebaikan dan kebajikan sebesar zarah sekalipun

yang tidak akan dicatat melainkan sebagai amal- amal yang soleh

yang mana akhirnya akan tetap dibalas dengan Jannah

sebuah pengakhiran yang senantiasa diimpikan oleh kesemuanya kita

tak kira jurang warna kulit, tempat dan bahasa nya

kita adalah satu

yang tetap bersatu
dalam satu jenama yang cukup tegap, mantap dan utuh
