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).

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
