Tagged by : Yen Pin

Each one starts out by telling 6 weird things about themselves. People who get tagged need to write (in their own blog) 6 weird things as well and state the rules clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. After you do that, leave each of them a comment letting them know you tagged them and the cycle goes on. Here it goes...

1- I always think too much and that makes me a sensitive person.

2- I just can’t be a happy-go-lucky person. It seems like I always bother about unnecassary things.

3- I always feel sorry for something that I think I shouldn’t have done to others.

4- I’m quite a perfectionist such that I always try to make sure things that I do will show the best outcome. But I always have bad management in the process of doing them.

5- I’m very careless, am I not practical enough or do I always lose concentration?

6- I get irritated easily.



And…there’s another tag….

A Plain Blog


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The internet connection in USM Engineering Campus is very poor until I took so much time waiting for blogspot.com to fully load its page, really miss the streamyx at home. By the way, I will be going back to Kuching again on 23rd of April, and will be back to Penang again on 5th of July, so I will have about 2 months of holiday in Kuching.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is going to be a plain blog with just texts and a few photos. And it's a boring blog :(

First of all, I would like to congratulate the Gaporians who have got good results in their SPM and STPM. Obtaining 4.00 NGMP is something that worths Stampin proud of and it happens for the first time in history of Stampin Form Six. (Thumbs Up for Chee How). And another thumbs up for Wan Ming who scored 13A1s in SPM, also first time in the history of Stampin. And then, a few more thumbs up as well for Fu Chun, Chi Lai, Yin Hon, Liang Shiu, Davin who've scored well in STPM. :D

And then... I would briefly describe some of my own opinions to those heading for IPTA...

Life in UNI is more or less like life in college, as in how packed the timetable is, with plenty of assignments, projects and more. The only difference is university is of higher level. Is studying in university tougher than studying in form 6? Well, I think it depends on the way we conceive the lifestyle in UNI. If you’re a happy-go-lucky person who just wants to enjoy life to its fullest and is always carefree about your performance in study and in curricular activities (copy assignments with little or no understanding, simply do projects as long as it’s “done”), and never really have specific aims in life, then life in UNI should be “Piece of Cake” for you. In contrary, if you’re the one of opposite type, then life in UNI should be tougher for you because you tend to mind more about how well you perform and you always have great aims in life, great future lies ahead of you if you never give up your targets. You don’t want just a “paper” with “Bachelor of Something” written on it, what you want is not only that piece of “paper” for recognition, but also to succeed as somebody that has profound influence in life.

Undoubtedly, in form 6 there are more syllabus than in university or college, and all the books are extremely thick, have headache every time the hands are on the books. I usually keep quite a distance apart from my books, like 1 or 2 meters, but I just don’t understand why they are getting older and older so rapidly. Needless to say, form 6 is an extremely crucial stage and those who’ve got themselves drowning in it will certainly need to try their best to not waste their 1.5 years of life. Life is short and it’s not worth wasting 1.5 years unless you really mature a lot throughout that period. The most critical part in form 6 is the STPM, provided if you manage to arrange your time well and study the right way within the one and a half years then you will be able to score good results, unless you are really unlucky.

University or college is different, there are more semesters and for each semester there are about 4 months of lectures. Although the syllabus are not that much, it’s much more hectic having had to finish plenty of assignments, projects, tasks, and there will be a lot of tests too, some more with the final exam just around the corner, and you only have 4 months. Experience it, and you’ll know it. It’s just a part of life that we as scholars have to go through because next time in the working society we always have to work under stress if we were to have prominent and tough careers (Engineers, Doctors, Architects, Pharmacists, Accountants, etc). Whether we’re still in secondary school, college or university, be it tough or not we still have to keep our aims firm and not only should we excel in academic, personal attitudes, socials, sports and extra activities should not be forgotten too.

Basically those who take STPM are the ones heading for IPTA. So, what should be done by those who just got their STPM results is figure out which field of study they are interested in. Think in depth so there is no regret in the future.

There is still much time left to make a wise decision. Try to imagine, what actually do you want to be in the future?



A pharmacist? A doctor? An engineer? Or an accountant? If engineering, which field of engineering do you want to further study, electrical, civil or mechanical engineer? There are plenty of choices, so take your time to do some imaginations and research.



















Or become a teacher?













Do consult SUPP (Sarawak) they can help you in making your IPTA choices. They know quite well about the NGMP requirements for you to enter IPTA. Nevertheless, a website which has the records of past year statistics can also be found at
