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

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
