Scholarship Interview

Till today my girl has not registered with any college yet but she will be attending two interviews, one next week and another one in early May.  This will be the first time for her and I pray that she will get the one that she wants.

Every now and then both of us check out this website for new scholarships.  Most of the scholarships require either STPM or A-levels results, this make me realize that doing Form Six is relevant to obtaining scholarships.  Form Five results are not as "sik heong" anymore.... but too bad... my girl is not into Form Six... she prefers to do her A levels instead...


  1. I really hope everything works out the way she wants, how close are the schools?

  2. 1 Dress decently - if possible, wear a plain and simple baju kurong (not those glittering ones with gaudy colours like you're going to appear on Hiburan Minggu Ini)...and wear shoes, not sandals, not slippers! No dyed hair...and long hair must be tied. You're going for an interview, not a party...

    2 Sit properly, good Be polite, greet people, say thank you...mind your p's and q's.

    3 Read up before going for the interview - possible questions but be prepared to talk about anything - they may ask you anything under the sun. Many beat around the bush to try and bluff their way through or show how shallow their mentality is...or how ignorant they are - kepala kosong!

    4 If in a group of 4-5 and you're the last one, the rest would have mentioned EVERYTHING about the topic given and you have nothing left to say! You may refer to their points and agree or disagree, elaborate or substantiate. It is about how you speak and how proficient you are in English - not how much you know.

    5 They may disagree or argue with you - you will need to (VERY NICELY) present your views to present your point of view. Many would be stumped...and sit there dumbfounded, looking stupid.

    6 Be diplomatic when addressing "sensitive" issues. At one interview, they asked me for my opinion about the position of the rulers - the agong, sultans and rajas.

    7 PRAY!!!

    Good luck, Fernie! Impress them!

  3. Good luck to your daughter.....! Be confidence..

  4. Good luck! what scholarship interview is she going for?

  5. Thank you for your wishes and comments..
    STP, thank you for your tips and how to-dos and not to-dos.. something new to us.. yes, i bought her a simple baju kurong already! :) Hope her shyness will vanish when she meets up with the interviewers...

  6. good luck to your daughter! don't be nervous.. I am sure she will be fine.. :D

  7. yeah, with the new curriculum, the STPM standard is going to drop & may not be accepted by overseas varsities. they keep changing education policies as if to un-educate the student!!

    all the best for the interviews.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

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

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
