Schools on school holidays

There is still 'schooling' during the school holidays. It takes up about half of our school holidays. We deserve the holidays after all our hard work, but it seems like the holidays are still far away.

On the first week, we have to go to school on the 5 weekdays excluding Vesak day on Thursday. Yet, we have to stay in school from 8 to 5.30 in the afternoon. It's like worse than normal days. However, I don't have to go, because...

On Monday, I attended the Hwa Chong training for Maths. They just informed me about it on Saturday. Anyway, I lost my pencil case and my water bottle in room 2, the room where I took the APMOPS exam. Hwa Chong said someone had found the pencil case and passed it to a sec 4 student, but then they could not contact him. They are just too much (guo fen)!

On Tuesday, all the MO students and I have to take part in the SMO, a kind of Maths competition organised by NUS for sec 2 students, but we are 'kei kiang' for participating in it. The competition is really really really very very very difficult. I am just exaggerating.

On Wednesday, there is a selection test in RI. It is to select 4 out of 12 pupils from many schools to take part in the competition held in Hong Kong. I am one of the 12 pupils.

On Friday, I also have to attend the Hwa Chong training. So I will have to miss all my suplementary during the school holidays.

Funny photos

Nice, but blur. What is the blue woman doing?

It looks like everyone is not ready to take the photo.

Where is everyone looking? Why don't they tell me about it? Is mam running up the stage?

Err... where am I?

Another video

Err... This is another video. It's just like one of the other video, only shorter and funnier.

I like to add videos and some of my friends are copying my idea.

Zoo trip

Yesterday we went to the zoo. I don't know whether the main purpose of the trip is to learn about the animals or to celebrate our achievements. Some animals were not moving, some just moved left and right. I thought there were only animals in the zoo, but I saw many plants, including a gigantic water lily. Some of my friends threw coins onto them. Clarence lent me 10 cents to throw, but I just kept it, then I returned it. I also saw the pumpkin plant. The pumpkin plant has no pumpkin, I wonder why it was placed there. I saw polar bears but they don't have any green thingy. The display board explains that the green thingy is the algae that grows on them because of the sunlight. I went to one place that looked like the greenhouse. There were bats, sloth and butterflies. The butterflies just flew here and there like no one's business. The bats were so cool. When two of them wanted to eat the same fruits, they fought with each other. They fought until one fell down. I even spotted one of them peeing. It's like a water fountain. So cool!

Here are some pictures that were taken during the zoo trip.

Exams are over!

Exams are finally over! I have always wanted for this moment to come. The greatest fear and sufferings are gone for now. But now it's time for the second greatest fear and sufferings, receiving our marks... Which is worse? I don't know. After that is the third greatest fear and sufferings, scoldings from our teachers and our parents. We always did our best and they say it's still not enough. This is so bad, 3 times worse than the exams.

If you are still upset, maybe this video will cheer you up.

SA1 Exams, so stressful

I hate exams. I wonder who likes exams, if someones likes I think something must be wrong with that person. There is nothing useful about exams. They only gives us stress, disturbance, we cannot play anything at all.

Oral exams : when waiting for my turn, it's like waiting for my turn for injection. So bad, I was the 3rd last. During oral, I was so nervous that I stumbled at least 10 words.

Listening : My hearing had something wrong. The English one - all the options were so close. The Chinese one - I didn't understand some parts, and the options were also so close.

Compo exams : We were FORCED to write AT LEAST 3 PAGES. It's like impossible to write in 1 hour. Then still must check 3 pages for grammar mistakes. Write 1 page already took half an hour when practising. I will go mad if I must write 3 pages in 1 hr only. Mother tongue, even worse. Every sentence must check at least 1 word in the dictionary. Others can use ming ti or kan tu, but I don't know ming ti, so must choose kan tu. And less than 1h to write!

English : The 2nd worst subject. My teacher said close passage cannot be taught, comprehension cannot be taught, vocab also cannot be taught, so we must read books. Only grammar and synthesis can be learnt. So there is nothing to learn for English.

Maths : There is nothing to learn. It is easy but I can be careless. Really really very very very very very very very very very careless. Even the super extremely easy question I may get it wrong.

Science : Too many big scientific words. Cannot memorise but can common sense. Science is another subject that I don't have to learn. However, the open ended questions are so... The answers I write can quite logical, but they can mark me wrong, it's so cheating.

Chinese : My worst subject ever. Must memorise the strokes, the words, the meaning, and their pei ci. English has only 1 graphic stimulus which is very easy, 1 MCQ and 1 OE comprehention. Chinese has 1 graphic stimulus 2 MCQ and 2 OE comprehension. Sometimes it has 3 OE.

QPS records

Before 2006, QPS had never won any silver in the SMOPS. In 2006, my sister (Lim Min) won a silver. She had broken a record. But this year, our class has broken the greatest record ever. Our class finally achieved 2 bronzes, 1 silver, 1 gold(a record) and 1 platinum(another record). QPS had achieved all kinds of awards in the SMOPS. Yay, we will have another celebration but i don't know when.
