UPSR and PMR examinations scrapped?

Below is the poll results which I print screen from thestar Online. Actually my vote for this is NO….as I go through the UPSR and PMR.

Sometimes, I just wonder why after so long only there is a request to scrap these exams. The reason to abolished UPSR and PMR because it was seen to be so examination oriented and failed to provide a holistic education. If this is true, I think what we need to do is identify the root-cause why we fail.

Honestly, nobody like examination. I always hope there is no examination as exam just makes me feel so stress but I do think we can improve the style of UPSR and PMR instead just scarp it.

Besides that, we should educate the mindset of the parents as some parents really putting to much pressure to their children. Comprehensive study need to be done on how to produce knowledgeable and skilled student in this competitive environment.

Heritage Walk in Penang

Since I have finished exam last week, this weekend I will be free and Rachel is coming from Brunei. I plan to bring her to Penang Heritage Walk. WE start our day with a great breakfast at Little Angel Café which is located at Love Lane. We really feel surprise as the food is nice and we love it.

The Little Angel Café owner thought we are tourist from Hong Kong and remind us to take good care on our handbag. He does ask us to be extra careful with the motorist. After that, we plan to find a map at a nearby motel or hotel as we have no idea where to start.Even I have been Penang for few years but I never trying to walk around the heritage walk.

Since we cannot find the map, I just tell Rachel we start from the “Gooddess of Mercy Temple”. We take few photos in the temple then we decide to follow the tour guide since there is lots of tourist around. Hehehe…..

Below are some of the photo which we snap:

Barber shop

No idea who is her

I like this photo

Photographer was snapping a photo.

"Kuil Sri Mahamariamman"

Angel at "Tokong Yap Kongsi"

The Chocolate Boutique

Let's Angel tell you a trick.....if you feel thirsty and hungry remember to drop by this Chocolate Boutique. We are given lots of chocolate to taste and mocho drink as well. Honestly, the product is excellent but the price is costly. So we never buy anything from this chocolate boutique.

We plan to visit this place again next time as we still not manage to finish visit all the tourist spot. We really feel extremely tired but we are happy to manage snap lots of photo.

Digi Live Tour (Audition)

Last Sunday, I and Rachel went to Bukit Jambul complex to buy some DVD. Initially, we should just drop by a while but since there is an audition so we decide to watch the audition.

This is GREAT…….Seriously. Now, I only realize actually Penang still have lots of talented people especially all the youngster. All the contestant are student as they represent the schools. If not mistaken, the champion will take back cash RM3000 and the school will be awarded another RM3000 as well.

There are 4 judges and I only manage to know Baki Zainal. Actually who is Baki Zainal ?? He is the 8TV Step Forward Host and actor (very talented people and speak fluent mandarin). He is so real and straight forward in giving comment. Sometimes the comment might be negative but do take it positively.

Below is my personal comment and view on the performance. I rate according to my taste and enjoyment level during that time.

Group 1: Singing the song “Never had a dream come true” by S club 7 if I not mistaken. I think they was nervous and the performance is “so …so….” Only.

*Do you know who is both the EMCEE ? I see them before in TV but no idea on their sorry *

Group 2 : Dancing. Hmmm – this group have too many people and the stage and nothing so special about it. Just all of them is “HOT” as is pretty.

Group 3: Drama and Singing. Actually their performance is “OK” just removing the sketch as very boring and long. The girl which have short curly hair really good in dancing. Honestly, even she is the fattest in the group but her dance skills are the excellent.

Group 4: Dancing and is “OK”. I dislike the guy with the spec...he thinks he is "cool".....

Group 5: This group is sweet. They dance “nobody nobody but you”……….The pink colour shirt girl is really cute.

Group 6 : OMG …this is represent the school. Please have a close look on their attire. This is too “sexy” and not appropriate for their age and competition as well. Nora (one of the judges) do give comment on their attire. “If you want to be sexy it is not necessary for you to wear like this”…….

Group 7: Dancing. This is from SMK Bukit Jambul representative. The 2 guys is excellent in dancing.

Not well prepare

                                                Baki is giving comment ...he look angry

Group 8 : Dancing. This group is not preparing well and Baki Zainal does give a critic on their attitude. I still can recall what Zaki said ….. “ I take 10 years to become what am I …..we must need to take critic positively and if this is your attitude on our critic then you will not success in this industry.

Group 9:Beat Boxing and Dancing. This is my favorite group and this youngster really talented. I really enjoy the performance very much and he is really very talented.

Group 10: Yoyo….there is rapper which not look like rapper. Hahaha but their performance is good as well. Oh ya…Ehsan (MC) also have a good voice as he sing the chorus part.

Is time to go back as Rachel still need to catch the 5pm flight. Anyway, we do enjoy and have fun with their performance. Keep it up and Good Luck!!!!!

TEAMBUILDING (Tanjung Bungah)

On 14th June 2010, I have attended a team building program at Tanjung Bungah Beach Hotel. This training is conducted by Ms Christine Vaz which is friendly and pretty.

This is the first team-building for me in this company…hehehe. (at last after nearly 2 years). I do enjoy myself with all the activities and meeting lots of great people in the organization.

Where is Angel???

This is how we look like when performing the "Haka Dance" at the lobby of the hotel. Anyway, I feel funny and on the same timedo feel enjoy. When we perform in group and try to be creative with the attire....what people think about us (there is lots of people in the lobby) we not really care. Hahahaha...........

Thanks for the great memory ........

Bibi is "Xiang Xiang" .......

This is how skinny BiBi look like after shower. I like the innocent look of her.
