Scholarship Woes And Holes

At this moment of time, I am sitting in Gloria Jean's coffees having my breakfast, a piece of tuna quiche and a bottle of Snapple.... So this is life in KL city?  :)

Came here by train this morning, woke up at 3.30am and reached the train station before 5am and here in K L by 7.30am....I am still quite blur.... Wish I could just close my eyes sitting here at the lobby...waiting.....

Girl has a scholarship interview at one of the companies here.... Her interviews never seems to end... But I think this will be the last... Get it or not, it has to end Here!  :)

As parents, we tell our kids to study hard so that they will have a brighter future.  I told my girl to study hard to get a scholarship and now I wonder..am I wrong?

Now I realize I am imperfectly wrong, how to define "hard".  Study hard... What la...

Ok, I am not  saying it is wrong to study hard but it is not right when when does and not getting anything out it. It is really disappointing....

I feel scholarships should be given to the needy..but then almost everyone seems to be needing it!  So what do you think the criteria of getting a scholarship?  Should it be given to the needy with good results or to be given to all who achieved good results regardless of their needs?

Confusing?  Sleepy ma

  1. Good luck to your girl...

    As parents, what to do? If my girl has to go anywhere - I would go with her too but it's all right for me - retired, nothing else better to do anyway.

  3. that's definitely not life in KL City, but only the life of rich tai-tai in KL City, haha!!

    all the best to your girl in getting that scholarship, that would surely lighten your financial burden.. plus, i guess with the bond, she'd be guaranteed a job later too.. :)

  4. Claire, this needs much thought! I think it should be given to kids who show promise and do not have the money. BUT, then don't kids less smart need college even more? People should not be refused just because of how bright they were born.

  6. I feel that scholarships are to be given to whoever that deserves it. So they just have to study hard lo. Most recipients are often not from wealthy families cos they have spoilt kids. Anyway be patient mummy...she will get it soon.

  14. Needy as in parents earning less than a certain amount of income and with good results. OK to continue applying for scholarships if you don't mind going for more interviews. There are some with bonds (have to work with the company for a few years).

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
