I got two scholarships for my PhD

A pdf letter I received in my email this morning
Okay guys, I'm updating my blog from my desk in the office. I mean I should be working on MatLab and not updating my blog (this is after office hour). While I was busy doing final edits on my slide this morning I received an email from postgraduate office. At the beginning I just ignored the email as I thought it must be one of those emails that I can expect already. Something like just an announcement or probably newsletter from them. About an hour later and my slide was finalised with a few changes and notes, so I just clicked the email. With no interest at all I persuaded my reading line by line. I thought something good and this email is telling me something. Then I read the email again and I scrolled down to download the attachment. I opened the downloaded file and read the letter slowly. Then I can't believe (at this time I know It's a scholarship offer) that but then I read it again. I thought I misunderstood or maybe some of the sentences were not clear. So I email the letter to a British friend (just in case if my english is not good enough to fully understand the letter). A few minutes later he replied my email with a short sentence saying "Fantastic. Well done". It wasn't really what I wanted to hear from him because I would expect some sort of explanations from him. So I replied to his email asking about something whether my understanding was correct or not. He replied to me yes it's correct. Then a few minutes later my supervisor came to the office and congratulated with a big grin smile to me. He helped me to read it and yes it means that I received two scholarships. Not only to cover my tuition fee for three years but also will cover my monthly expenses and travel expenses.

Well I should be very grateful to my supervisor Prof.Reyer and Dr.Bernie also my previous supervisor in Hatfield Dr.Trevor. Family and friends who have been giving me support since last year. The most important is friends, Micheal and Jonnie who were so helpful although we never met that time(this is before I come back to the UK). It wasn't easy to get those scholarship because the competition was fierce and I either one of the best or maybe just being lucky. Whatever it was I should be thankful to God for giving me continuous blessing since I came to the UK. He is always with me giving me a light walking in the dark street of my life. Thanks God once again! The news I received this morning makes my day happier than any other day. This is probably my happiest day ever in my life and this will remind the best in my heart.

P/s: Today's presentation went really well. I'm glad I did it and all went smoothly :-)
