贫者因书而富,富者因书而贵

谢谢各位网友们的祝福噢! 珍惜。
可惜啊...这次的MUET肯定是Band 3了!!
看了老师给的阅读答案后
我更加心灰意冷了,只能等候再从考
希望能在今年11月报这雪耻!
当然前提是又要再给RM 61.00了==
不过我会继续加油的^^
就不相信自己不能打破这道墙!

这一次
我深思...反省自己
发现自己最大的问题
莫过于是两个字

 “紧张”
这两个字是使我失败的主要原因吧
在Speaking的时候,我竟然脑袋空白
连自己说什么都不知
其实我想也是因为2分钟的缘故
只有仅仅2分钟的时间准备
当然比不上平时咯~

中国之旅第五站:无锡影视基地之 三国城

哇,好快~`转眼间到了第五站!
我果然是写旅游记的料! 哈哈(明明就过了很久)
在进第五站前,首先要考考大家
还记得上一站我们去过哪吗?
贴士: 苏州特产之一
假如还是不记得,那你务必要看这里咯
http://ocean1211.blogspot.com/2011/04/blog-post_09.html

接下来我们休息片刻  有去个旅游景点
可惜是插肩而过%
所以以下这地方我没进去
因为导游说不是要带我们去那里
你们谁有去过吗? 经过网上一点
我查到是哪里了
原来是 灵山胜境
途中看到这个
无论去哪个国家总会看到这些
阳光不是很猛烈,不过更容易伤害皮肤
所以万万不能忽略咱们的皮肤保养以及措施。


好啦,我也不卖关子了
我要揭晓咯
其实我们接着是要去无锡
知道无锡是哪里吗? 稍微介绍下

无锡为什么叫无锡?
就如词语一样
现在无锡没有多少锡矿了
原本的无锡是充满锡矿的。
不用疑惑
导游就是告诉我们这个答案
无锡市位于江苏省南部,长江三角洲平原腹地,北临长江,南濒太湖,东与苏州接壤,西与常州交界,京杭运河从中穿过。无锡是中国著名的鱼米之乡,也是一座现代化工业城市,中国民族工业的发源地之一,素有“小上海”之称。无锡地处太湖之滨,风景优雅秀丽,千年悠久历史,是在江南蒙蒙烟雨中孕育出的一颗璀璨的太湖明珠;无锡以丰富而优越的自然风光和历史文化,成为全国十大旅游观光城市之一。

MUET Writing Paper Mid-Year 2011




Question 1
A survey was carried out on two different age groups of professionals to determine what they consider to be the main goals for the year ahead. Using only the information provided, write about the results of the survey. In your writing, you are to link the profile of the professionals with their goals. You should write 150 to 200 words.



Example of marking scheme and 
writing skills for Question 1
**Surely not for the question above as I have just got this paper from the examiner in the morning^^
http://ocean1211.blogspot.com/2011/02/muet-writing-paper-question-1-marking.html#more

Question 2

"The most valuable thing in life is friendship."
Do you agree? Discuss. 
You should write at least 350 words.

Sample Answer:
It is true that no ‘man is an island’ meaning that no one in this world can live alone without friendship. That person would be very socially challenged as he or she would miss the camaraderie and life experiences that come with friendship. However, I completely disagree with the statement that the most valuable thing in life is friendship as there are certainly more important and priceless things in life besides this. In this essay, I will outline how life itself is more valuable than friendship, and elaborate on why family and the individual’s principles in life are ranked higher.

First and foremost, before one can enjoy the beauty of friendship, one must surely value life itself or in other words, we should value our health. This is because, the quality of our life is the single most important criteria in life if we are to live a meaningful and wholesome life. Moreover, without good health, we will be hard pressed to do even the simplest of tasks like feed ourselves or relieve ourselves without the help of doctors, nurses and caregivers. For example, if we are paralyzed, lost our sight, hearing or ability to speak or even a simple case of a fever or allergic reactions, then the quality of our life is greatly reduced and no amount of friendship can make us healthy again. Therefore, while friends can stand by us in our time of need, pristine health is still the most valuable asset in our lives.

Secondly, we are no one without our family as indeed blood is thicker than water. This means that however you analyze it, friendships will almost always play second fiddle because family always comes first. Furthermore, if we do not value our family above others, then there must be a problem among the family members that has caused their relationship to be strained. For instance, people tend to turn away from family if the family member(s) themselves are the ones to cause them to react negatively such as divorced parents, abusive parents or siblings and so on. Thus, when people consider friendship to be the most valuable thing in life, more often than not they may come from a troubled household.

Last but not least, a person’s principles in life is by far more valuable than friendship alone. This is due to the fact that each person needs to have a code of ethics, quite often prescribed by their individual religions. In addition, this code will guide each person to live their lives according to the good and right principles. Take for example, if an individual has set his principles to do good, then no amount of friendship especially negative influence from friends, can shake his hold on his principles and cause him to commit undesirable deeds like smoking, stealing, raping, murdering and others. Hence, if a person values friendship so much to the point where he is willing to break his principles, then he has done a serious misdeed against himself and will most likely regret his actions later in life.

In short, friendship is the rainbow of life as it colors our horizons with invaluable experiences but without good health, a supportive family and strong principles, life becomes empty and meaningless. In my opinion, it is beyond a shadow of a doubt that I still firmly believe that friendship is not the most valuable thing in life. Our government can encourage people to prioritize health, family and principles in life by organizing awareness campaigns especially in primary schools where the younger generation should learn about priorities in life because they are the leaders of tomorrow.

Essay 13:The Advantages And Disadvantages To A Developing Nation Of Receiving Economic Aid From Other Nations

 
Here is an essay i want to share with you all as i like this essay.

Answer

The spirit of giving aid is magnanimous, it blesses the nation that gives and the nation that receives. An aid cannot be equated to alms giving nor it is a doling of charity. An aid assumes that the receiver can be sustained at the right time. It also assumes an equality sharing of the products not in the economic sense but in a social and altruistic(利他) sense.

After the World War II, the USA found the wisdom(智慧) of helping under-developed nations and those that were battered(连击) by the war. By virtue of her position, the USA could help. Of course willingness was there and Marshall Plan under which the USA helped the European nations has become a classic example. The USA had a surplus of many goods which she could easily part with. This, of course, had an economic advantage for her for otherwise she would have to face a glut(大量) of goods leading on to recession(衰退).

中国之旅第四站:蚕丝被制作过程

*
上次说到苏州耦园
不知朋友们还记得吗?
不记得的你一定要看看哦^^
http://ocean1211.blogspot.com/2011/04/blog-post.html

而继苏州耦园后, 下一站还是在苏州
倘若有人问你苏州的特产是什么
其中之一肯定非“蚕丝被”莫属了!
你,有听过蚕丝被吗?
相信许多人都有听过蚕丝被。

虽然他们说蚕丝被有多好多好
什么可以冬暖夏凉啦`减少风湿痛啦`
是,我不否认这些作用
而且经过当地的地陪导游介绍
十个有九个肯定会买 ,很夸张是吧?
但我本人是最最最最不赞成买这样东西!!!
虽然很对不起商家们   
但我还是得这么说  
虽然很不赞成大家去买
但还是要让各位认识认识什么叫“蚕丝”。

这一次,我们去“金叶丝”蚕丝被厂
听说是苏州第一丝厂,以前只公开于高层
后来公开给部分旅客参观
而我们就是其中一团。
听到蚕丝被   打S我也不买
而我为什么不买? 看下去你就明。

简单的蚕丝被介绍请见这
我不一一讲解咯,照片胜过千言万语。
这一次主要介绍制作蚕丝被的过程
算是让我大开眼界,至少在马来西亚
我还没机会看过这少有的场面

咦,我国的国旗在哪里呢

制作蚕丝被过程
现今时代科技发达,有机器很明显万事Ok啦

看到吗?要几万只才能制成蚕丝被,残忍
复摇过程

拉蚕丝,制成蚕丝被
这些蚕就是牺牲品

Essay 12:The Absence Of Sporting Spirit And Its Consequences


The Absence Of Sporting Spirit And Its Consequences(后果)


The world from the dawn(开始) of civilization(文明) has been enjoying sports. One of the pastimes(消遣) of the rulers(统治者) was to arrange for periodical(定期) sports. It may be hunting, chariot race(战车比赛) , horse riding, wrestling(摔角) and boxing. Organized sports were popular in Greece, especially Olympia from which modem Olympic games have derived(起源) their names. Sports were for fun and frolics(欢乐). In the middle ages sports were very popular in European countries. Sports are supposed to develop many good qualities. There may be healthy competition and rivalry(对抗) and never enmity(仇) or bitterness. It is and should be for the sports' sake(为了) and not for winning the laurels(桂冠). This is the real sporting spirit. There are rules and regulations(规例) in play and games. The sporting spirit implies the following of rules whether one wins or loses. The outcome or the result is not the important thing but how the game is played.

A real sportsman takes things easy. Take for instance, an angler sitting by the river side from morning till evening, casting(投) his line into the water. He may not always be lucky to have a catch. Still he whistles(口哨) back home happy in the evening when the night sets in. It is not the catch that is the point but the angler's(钓鱼者) attitude. He cannot grow angry and break the fishing rod. Then he has lost the fun. So too in any game the winner or the loser, much more so the latter(后者) must be able to take things easy. A real sportsman does not lose his head when he wins nor is he bowled over when he loses.

There Are No Everlasting Friends Nor Everlasting Enemies In The World!

 
No permanent friends, no permanent enemies.
Only permanent interests.
There Are No Everlasting Friends 
Nor Everlasting Enemies In The World*
I am sorry but i have to say this.
From what i have seen, it can be concluded that
most of friends have become realistic when 
Talking About $$!!!
Money is a very sensitive issue!
Maybe money is the root of evil?

Anyway, in my opinion
"Life is like a dream"
I totally agree with this statement!
Because i understand the truth of life is a dream
and hence it makes me feel better 
and being able to build emotional intelligence

My main objective in writing this post is 
to articulate my thoughts 
clearly, concisely and completely.
Besides that, i have to remind myself 
to become smart when cope with money 
especially on sale!
I know, maybe you all sure feel blurry.
This is just my self-realization
and introspection post, you may neglect it.


For the sake of our soul,
we must become dedicated to 
our spiritual growth and personal development.
Although life is just a dream,
but we have to build a nice dream, right?

Essay 11:The Rising Fuel Price Has Pushed Up The Price Of Other Consumer Products. How Will This Affect The Society?



  
Q:
The rising fuel price has pushed up the price of other consumer products. How will this affect the society? Give your opinion. You should write at least 350 words.

When tackling this question, one should think in terms of : 1. short term effect, 2. mid term and finally 3. long term. This question gauges a student's level of critical thinking and prediction.


Sample Answer
Money is always an issue in today's era of materialism. Most people need it for basic survival while the lucky few indulge in luxuries without worrying about money. In my opinion, I strongly agree that the rising fuel price has pushed up the price of other consumer products and this will definitely affect the society. In this essay, I would like to touch on the effects this price increase has on society today, namely increasing vice activities, widening the gap between the rich and the poor and affecting the population trend in the long term.

First and foremost, society will immediately be affected by the rise in fuel prices because consumer products will be more costly and this leads to an increase of vice activities. This is because basic necessities such as rice, flour, sugar and so on will be in great demand and some warehouses will store or hoard the items to further increase the price of the product. Moreover, in the newspapers today, reports of smuggling of these items prove that this vice activity is on the rise. For example, the recent sugar price hike caused a furor among the Malaysian society as it costs more fuel to travel to and from the supermarket and when arriving, most places had run out of stock even though the government had allocated 2kg of sugar to one person. Therefore, the fuel price increase had definitely caused more hardships to society today.

中国之旅第三站:苏州耦园

继续上集 苏州夜景 后,你猜过后会往哪去?
http://ocean1211.blogspot.com/2011/03/blog-post_24.html

看完了漂亮的苏州夜景
很快的,第二天的早晨来了
接下来,我们往这里去咯~

哟,变态,那天气冷到...~
听说当天天气<10度!!!
无言...这未免有些夸张呢
说真的,我忘了这是哪里
等我想下先...看来我老了
只记得这地方很多古代文化
载酒堂?
有诗酒联欢,大概记得是哪里

叮! 我想到了,你想到了吗?
原来这是苏州耦园!
此园因在住宅东西两侧各有一园,故名耦园。
古时两人耕种称为为“耦”,“耦”、“偶”相通
寓有夫妇归田隐居之意
“耦园住佳耦,城曲筑诗城”
取 名“耦”,通“偶”
即指佳偶连理,又道出园宅的特征。
耦园给我的最先印象是三道门楼
从“平原小隐”到“厚德载福”
再到“诗酒联欢”,一道比一道精致。
人在第一道门楼外,根本看不出里面会有如此的亭台轩榭,绿树碧水;但是到第三道门楼,从那细致的石雕中,就不难领略耦园的旨趣。事实上,从三道门楼的 取名中我们也可以体会到园主的用心。“平原小隐”,含蓄而不外露,“诗酒联欢”,品酒作诗,尽享山水田园的乐趣。

The Mines Education Fair 2011

 
Yesterday, my school form 6 students included me were went to the education fair of 2011 held in The Mines. Did you ever go there especially for SPM and STPM 2010 graduates? Well, we went there by bus which the bus expenses was sponsored by the school. So, we don't have to pay everything^^We met at the school gate at 7.30 am. Then, the bus started at 8 o'clock in the morning and it took us an hour to get there.

Although STPM exam is coming, but i still confusing about my future. I still can't even find my life goal. On the other hand, R&D presentation is starting from mid-April, but i didn't finish it yet!! For the MUET test, it is starting 13 April. I get nervous because my final school test for speaking part is just only 25 marks!! GOSHH...


As the popular saying goes, "never burn incense when all is well, but clasp Buddha's feet when in distress." Although i understand the idiom, but i made the same mistake haha. 

Well, i saw many university exhibition there includes UM, UPM, USM, Unimas, UUM, UKM and so on. As i haven't finish my STPM, so i just take entry requirements and information without asking too much. But i don't know why my friend keeps asked me why i didn't ask anything? So weird.Why must i ask? 


Anyway, i am glad, i get many souvenirs from the education fair^^After that, we returned back from The Mines to school at around 3.30 pm.

Essay 10: The Benefits Of Hosting International Sporting Events And The Ways To Improve The Standard Of Sports In The Country


Mind Map
The benefits of hosting international sporting events absolutely outweigh the disadvantages.In fact, many countries raised their hands to host the 2022 World Cup last year. There are three reasons why the benefits always outweighs the disadvantages in the host country.

First of all, hosting international sports events can give a good chance to make a steady infrastructure. It includes making the new network of public transportation such as subways constructed for the Olympics in China. Consequently, it would also lead to a comfortable life after the events.

Secondly, it would grow national pride in their minds. Achieving success as the international host brought about the confidence in leadership and techniques. We can historically regard one of the reasons why Japan developed sharply after World War II was due to success in the Tokyo Olympics.


Finally, it results in galvanizing tourism.The fans from overseas would spend much money on hotel, Olympic merchandise, and traditional foods. ("Sport goods" or "sporting goods" is a very general term relating to equipment, instruments, or tools related to certain sports (example: hockey stick, baseball glove, football helmet, shoulder pads). The more correct term would be "Olympic merchandise" which refers to souvenirs.) In addition to this, it could play an important role in the tourism industry in terms of sightseeing tours.


It can be said then that the host of an international sporting event will create many advantages for their country. For that reason, the benefits outweigh the disadvantages.

Hosting Major International Sports Events: Comparing Asia And Europe

News:
 
Major international sporting events have an extraordinary(特殊) capacity(容量) to generate emotionally powerful and shared experiences. Events like the Olympic Games, the Football World Cup, and other major sporting events reveal(揭示) both the appeal(呼吁)and elusiveness(难以捉摸) of sport. In the age of global television, the capacity of major sports events to shape and project images of the host, both domestically and globally, make them highly attractive for political and economic elites(精英).


The pursuit(追求) of hosting major 
(or ‘mega’) sports events has become 
increasingly popular among governments, 
corporations, and civic ‘boosters’ worldwide. 
They argue that major economic,
developmental, political, and 
socio-cultural benefits will flow 
from them, easily justifying(辩解) the costs 
and risks involved. Numerous studies fuel
the popular belief that sport is a generator
of national as well as local economic
and social development. Economically
it has been viewed as an industry
around which cities can devise(设备) urban(城市)
regeneration strategies. Socially it has
been viewed as a tool for the development
of urban communities and the
reduction of social exclusion and crime.
Most of these studies, however, have
been conducted in advance of the events
on behalf of interested parties without
adequate measurement of final and
intermediate outputs as well as inputs.
Critical post-event studies point to their
uneven impacts. Research shows that
costs have usually been underestimated
while beneficial impacts have been overestimated.
