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.

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?

Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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....

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...
