My lovely, lovely readers… well mi familia just got back from a week-long stay in Teluk Intan. ‘Berkampung’ at the rest house there. (Quite spacious, so suitable when traveling with kids. Plus, restaurants, 7-E, post office, CC, bundle shop are within walking distance.) Ridz and I had a blast doing our ESB seminar at SMK Tun Abd Razak, Selekoh (STARS). For the whole escuela!!! Form 1 until Upper 6 and the teachers and staff too.
We went to STARS last year, during Ramadhan (yup, we do take bookings in Ramadhan). That was a few weeks before SPM 2007. The students who took part in ESB couldn’t get enough of it *wink*. Pn. Hjh Rahmah, the principal loved it. So, early January this year, she called me and booked us for the whole STARS population. By the way, when the SPM results came out last March, there was a 9% jump for English papers. (The school targeted 5% – so imagine how happy they were..are).
Oh, I must mention that we had a guest speaker for ESB4Teachers and Upper-6 students – Dr. Rohayu. I must tell my readers that she did a superb job inspiring the pre-U students to go ahead and dream. Dream big. I caught some of the girls wiping away their tears. What comes from the heart touches the heart! Bravo Doc!!!
Confession: She inspired me too (if you are reading this Doc, you are the best!) My goal – by November this year I must have registered for post-grad – PhD. Hmm…Dr.Sha.. sounds nice, kan? Ay caramba!!!
