POPULAR BOOK FAIR- One stop, Midlands Park, Penang.

I love to read
Not only can gain knowledge but also will enhance my writing skills
my LSP 402 ( English for science) lecturer said my essay is too 'conversational'..
not formal enough, instead for science topic i should use a report style..'sai'
how can i learn that style leh?
since i'm so used to 'conversational' style
due to:

1. my f4& f5 english tuition teacher (Mr.Felix) used to teach us that style in order to score in our 'story' essay.

2. Blogging and MSN

3. Novels and self-improvement books i read

actually before that i'd decided to take 'speaking' english but now maybe i want to stick to my old choice ' business writing'...but still thinking..cant really make a decision

ok, back to the book fair.

the books for my favourite author like : John C.Maxwell and Khaled Hosseini and etc...
the most i see the discount is just 25%..*sigh =.='''

so i got other books instead (^o^)

And he is cute....!!!25% discount ,RM29.93 (after discount)(>.<)

The Witch of Cologne-Tobsha Leaner

Never really know about the author, but since it claims to be 'international bestselling author'
so i guess will be good, flipped through a few pages before buying it..
the story was set in about 'longlong time ago', australian author,
so can learn some old english 50% discount , RM 17.95
so i think its ok for leisure reading.(>.o)

Before i go, took a rm50 note from daddy, and passed it to the lovely cashier and she gave me RM2. 15 in return..*sigh (T.T)

i want to get another book from K.Hosseini

Cari Makan

Last Sunday mummy said want to bring me to a vegetarian restaurant behind GMC for brunch,
i really like vegetarian food,
but what happened was, she cant find the place and refused to call her friend and asked where is the restaurant,
we were going round and round and discovered many other cafe's ans restaurants except that particular one which we are looking for.

Since we were at the area and i was very hungry cause i din eat since morning,
i asked her to bring me to eat 'Mee Sua Tau' a kind of sticky mee sua served with crabmeat and back vinegar and etc, tasted almost the same with the shark fin soup we eat normally in restaurant.

it is located in the housing area at Pulau Tikus. ( where the rich-rich belaka ppls live)
Take the left turn from the triangle in front of S.Disted College
Then when u see the road sign 'Jalan Cantoment" on ur right take a left turn.
Then u'll see this big big house

then at the opposite of this house, among the bushes u'll see this sign

Turn into it, then u'll see this

It used to be a club for the richie richs, mostly those westerners who retired here. I used to come here like 6-8 years ago, and still see some of the 'ang mo' there, now i'm not really sure.

Well, the restaurant is actually behind the bungalow

mummy always like to peep at ppl, kena tangkap basah by me

So, this is the menu, sorry my phone camera is not that good. This price which u can barely see, is actually not that expensive compared others.

This is num.16 Mee Sua Tau, we ordered a small one to share: RM 5.00
Very nice! Its the famous dish there.

Num.2 Chicken Chop : RM 7.50
Not nice, bland.

Num. 18 Roti Babi and Num. 17 Spring Roll: RM3.80 each
Also the famous dish there, very nice and the fillings to me tasted the same for both.

The spring roll and roti babi taste even better with this sauce(which they made it with their own recipe) available in supermarkets but i dun know wats the name and it tasted different with theirs.
Mixed it with cili padi.


I was very full by then, but mummy said the chicken chop not nice, want to order somemore. Lets order Mee Jawa. She said the the Mee Jawa there very nice.

Fried Mee Jawa RM 3.80.
It was loaded with seafoods and chickens and etc...very tasty.

And by the time we finished all the food, both of us were so bloated until we skipped dinner, mummy worst, cant even sleep at night cause time dont be so greedy la..dun eat so much!

Total Spent : RM 25.80 for 2 persons. With 3 combined meal portion. Imagine that. Means for each meal, each of us only pays RM 4.13. Haha...worth it?

At night, we went to Fort Cornwalis to eat fruits and rojak.
Also were bloated that time when we went because of the food we ate earlier.

Took a pic of mummy and daddy at the bay.

Mathematics Night USM 2009 >>> Thrill-logy

This year the event was conducted in Ballroom 1, G-Hotel, Penang.
The ballroom was so much better than the previous year and also the service and the food though not very nice also but still better than last year.

But...the ballroom was damn cold, that my hands were under the table most of the time and refused to step up away from it.
Overall, i wasnt really exited and in the mood, dont know why...

And this time i went as audience to watch, frankly it is really boring but i tried to watch every performance with full attention caused i know how efforts the performers had put in for that few minutes of show.

All of them improved a lot from the last time i saw them during the rehearsal. BRAVO!

The committee did a great job by finding the sponsorships this year. Though the economy crisis struck but they managed to find more sponsors than last year. Cheers!

All those who went dressed up nicely...especially the girls...look so gorgeous..
next year is my year..i'm gonna wear something very eye catching also...haha

And the climax of the night is when it ends..when everyone went on stage to dance..and started to take pics like crazy....we like taking pics so so much....
so below are some pics from my camera...

special thanks to Xiao Ting who introduced me to Yuko and YoYo who did my hair and make-ups for me. Tq so much to Yuko and YoYo, hope tat can treat them eat before they go back to Japan.

Parenting is not an easy subject.

i said a lot about my student in my previous blog...
today i have a different view.

Last time i'll always think that my student is too 'xing fu' so that she dont know how to appreciate what she has, but now i think its because if the parents that she becomes who she is now.

She is not talking to her mother since 2-3 weeks ago.
The father doesnt really bother about her.

Her mum doesn't like her to go to tuition outside, she rather pay for expensive house tuition teacher than send her daughter outside for tuition cause scared that the daughter will meet some 'bad' friends there.
Then, the daughther was angry cause the mum didnt trust her, i tried to explain to her, her mum believes i her but her mum doesnt believe in the people around her which she never see and never talk to. So for sure she will worry and will do anything to protect her whether she likes it or not.
I think both of them need to communicate better.
Now, since both of them are not talking to each other, isnt it the mum should be more mature and should take the initiative and talk nicely to the daughther as i can sense that my student really want her parents to treat her well like other parents.

Today, she asked me to fetch her back from tuition 8:30pm from tanjung, near komtar.
I offered actually, cause she said her dad doesnt want to go to fetch her, then i said u try to ask again if really her dad doesnt want to fetch her then i'll go to fetch her.
She said she wants to come back by bus, but i dun let her do so, cause it will be dangerous for a 15 year-old to wait for bus and walk back home at night.
As her apartment is located in the kampung which homes a lot of foreign workers now.
Then the dad really asked her to come back by herself since she wants to go to tuition so much.
This is the second time i fetch her.
1st time was from school, she has an extra class and unable to contact the dad that time.

How irresponsible the parents are?
not just the dad, the mum also.
How can they do this to their daughter?
No matter how bad is she, but wont they worry about her safety?

the mum always said that they had given everything to her, new laptop, well-furnished room , a maid and etc..what else that she wants? She is taking everything for granted.
i think even u noe what she needs...why cant the parents?

a lof of problems happened, i know.
but she is your daughter, the one you should protect and love with everything you have.
maybe because both of ther parents are really young, but parenting is much more than what they think.

if you are unable to learn how to educate and love a child, please do not have any as it will ruin you and the most importantly the innocent child's life.

p/s : nearly had an argument with mummy because of that, cause mummy thinks that i'm very 'ke po'. haha...why bother? its her parents responsibility and not mine..and summore i hv to go that far at night to fetch her. That reminds me, i have mummy too. But, maybe because i dun have any siblings, that makes me cherish those ppl around me, my friends and my students more. I cant really just sit there and do nothing. Sorry, mum.
