This afternoon I received a letter from state government. I was a bit shocked. At a sudden, I can't figure out why state government sent letter to me. Therefore, I couldn't wait to open the envelope to see what is the content of the letter.
At the moment when I tear off the envelope, something strike my mind. I suddenly thought of a possibility why state government sent letter to me. It must be something to do with study loan.
When I took out the letter from the envelope, as expected - what I thought is what I get! State government asking me to pay back my study loan which I took from them about 9 years ago!
Maybe you will think, why the state government took so long to ask the loan back? Actually, they did ask once from me the year I finished my study. That time, they sent a form to me to fill in about payment details, I filled in and sent it back. However, I had been waited for years and years but no respond from them at all.
Then in June 2007, I received a warning letter from them saying if I didn't pay back the loan, they will take legal action against me. I was angry at that time because all these while I was waiting for their reply on the pay back method, the amount to pay and other details but I never get any respond from them, yet I had been accused for didn't want to pay back the loan. Therefore, I replied their letter by clarify my standing, expressed my dissatisfaction for their accusation and also asked for payback details.
After more than a year, this afternoon I just got a respond from them. State government sent this letter to me informing about the amount and also the method I can use to pay them back the loan. Although I feel the information given are still not detail enough, at least it's much better than the one I received more than a year ago which were just bunch of meaningless accusation.
Look like I got no choice but to start the payback end of this year. In fact I never refuse to pay back all these while. I just waiting for clearer instruction from the authority concern so that the payback can be done smoothly.
There goes my money! :(
