My Family's Outing at Gunung STONG
A couple weeks ago, my family and I went for an outing to Gunung Stong waterfall. The trip took us about an hour to reach our destination. It was a pleasant journey as we saw endless layouts of breathtaking terrain along the way.
        The waterfall sparkled during that sultry day and the freshness of the air made the place magical. The mesmerizing scene of cascading waterfall made my siblings and I jumped into excitements as we changed into our swimming trunks. We dived into the crystal clear water with haste. The chilly water touched our nerves in a very serene way.
        We were swimming and splashing water towards each other, laughter was bursting through the refreshing air, while others were seen to be netting some fishes. The overall experience was soothing to the ears and mind to listen the cascading waterfall splashed the cool water beneath. The paradise-like place was not a miss for me to take pictures. So, we took a family photo to keep the memorable day as a souvenir.
      Our stomach began rumbling and roaring like a monster after some time in the water. My mother then spread the mat on the ground and began displaying food on it. She prepared many scrumptious delicacies for us to grab a bite. My father also helped her with arranging the food. My little brother and sister were the first to dig in. We finished the food as if we were fasting the whole time. Everyone was satisfied thus we packed our stuff and reached home before dusk.

     The family outing at the waterfall was simply an example of how our family members bond and loosen up during our free time. All of us should keep a close-knitted relationship family because blood is thicker than water. There are plenty other ways of achieving it such as cooking together, cleaning the house together, visiting relatives who are close to our hearts, or even going to the park for basking or going to the movies. Therefore, healthy relationships among family can be accomplished for a healthier emotional growth.

How to Choose Friends Wisely
         Think you don't get to just choose who you're friends with? Absolutely not. You get just as much say who your friends are as they do. Making friends is one thing, but choosing who your friends are is incredibly important because your friends are your guides in life as well as the people who help define who you are. In some ways, they are family. There are some friends who are closer to you than others, but who you choose to share important parts of your life with matters.

        A friend that is honest is one of the best friends you can have. Trust and honesty are cornerstones in any relationship. Choosing a friend who can tell you how it is will be something you'll appreciate greatly (albeit, you may not always appreciate it in that particular moment, you'll look back on it and appreciate it later...really). An honest friend will keep you from walking out of the house wearing that awful green shirt or tell you that the girl you're going to ask out isn't interested. They're supportive in their honesty, and you should choose someone you know will not lie.

       Friends need to laugh together. We like our good times in life, and sometimes the best times come from our own odd character traits. Choose a friend who gets those quirks and can laugh with you rather than at you. After all, if you choose a friend who gets your odd sense of humor, it's likely they have one, too. Look for someone who will laugh with you at a look or a glance. Those people will be some of your best friends. They don't put you down for the things that make you different, they embrace them!

       It's so easy for us to be good friends in the fun times. There's all kinds of laughter and joyful moments, and those times make relationships easy. But who are the people who stand by you when times turn tough? Those are your true friends. Those are the people that get that life doesn't always go the way we plan. It's much harder to stand by someone that's having a tough time, so choosing a friend that is strong enough to be the shoulder to cry on or hold your hand when it's needed is a wise choice.

       We've all had friends that only want things from us, but they never seem willing to give to us when we need it. Relationships involve compromise. Sometimes you're going to do what your friend wants to do, even though it's not quite your thing, and sometimes she is going to do what you want to do, even though it's not quite their thing. When a relationship is one-sided, we just end up feeling resentful and angry. It's not healthy. Choose a friend with whom you feel a balance of give and take.

        Your faith is important to you, so why choose a friend who puts it down at every chance they get? If your friends are pulling you away from God, are they really your friends? Not likely. A true friend, whether they believe what you do or not, will support your choice to be a Christian. It tends to be why Christians often choose other Christian friends because they want to be with people that help them stay on a Christian path.

        While friendship is full of compromise, it helps if you choose friends who share a lot of your interests. It gives you things to talk about or share. It makes deciding on stuff to do easier. You don't have to choose a friend who likes every single little thing you do, but you should have some shared interests.

How To Improve Your English
English is now the international language .So it is very important to learn English well. We should study English in the correct way, so that we can make the most of the time we spend learning English. Discovering ways to improve their English is a problem which baffles many students. There are three ways to improve English

          First of all, We have to learn many English words and study English grammarin great detail. Reading is the best way to increase vocabularies and learn how  to avoid making grammar errors. If we read magazines written in English, regular reading will make it easier for us to remember the many new words we come across.Having a dictionary is just like having a teacher close at hand. We need to use a dictionary to look up those words that we don't know. It makes reading a very enjoyable pastime.

         Secondly, besides learning to read English, we must learn to understand  spoken English, and practice speaking. Try listen to radio stations, if at first you don't understand, keep listening and maintain a regular habit of  listening to radio stations. Repeat after the broadcast and learn how to pronounce correctly and frequently.

          Thirdly, we should try to talk with Americans, find native English-speaking people who will give you conversation practice. Don't be afraid to speak ,afraid to be laughed at. If we never learn to take risks to open mouths, it will be impossible to improve speaking skills. There is no reason to be ashamed of speaking poor English. If we can learn from our mistakes, failure can become part of our success. In fact, the secret of success may come from failure.

                     In conclusion, There is no short cut to learning English. Persistence isthe major secrets of success. If you want use English as your native language,don't ever give up trying to achieve your goal. If we are prepared to work hard at it, we will be successful in the end

Describe the biggest challenge in your life

 The biggest challenge in my life is to get through my SPM examination with good grades. Little did I know that the form five Sijil Pelajaran  Malaysia or SPM examination is so important to me. Ever since I have entered secondary school, I have been repeatedly told  and reminded by my teachers and my family that SPM exam is very important because it is the stepping stone into my career and my future. But as usual, students like me have taken this matter lightly because we cannot see the future yet.

      Many students can fairly get through the SPM exam, but how many of us will be able to get through with flying colours is another question. Why is it so important to do well at SPM level? It is simply because it is a gateway to further education and higher education. Strange enough SPM qualification itself does carry weight. A person with SPM qualification only get to be employed as a clerk and may be paid a salary of  RM500.00 at the most. But having a good SPM certificate can ensure many other perks.

      Students with good grades are often offered scholarships to further studies in local or foreign institutions of  higher learning. This incentive will be a great motivation to me as I do not have to burden my parents unnecessarily.  Moreover, those with good grades are also exempted from sitting for foundation courses in some programmes. This is good because I can save cost and time in pursuing my ambition that is to be a bio-technologist.

      Those students who do well in SPM are also given priority to get into Form Six or the pre-university classes which are conducted in some schools. The cost is low and affordable for students and parents. Those who want to do their pre-university in a private college because  their SPM results are not good enough to be absorbed into government schools, have to pay higher fees.   With an excellent SPM result, students can also opt to do their A levels which could take them for an oversea education in countries like the United Kingdom, Australia or even in the United States of America. These countries have excellent tertiary educational programmes which uses the SPM results as their yardstick to take in Malaysian students. 
    Therefore I think the biggest hurdle in my life is the SPM. It is the deciding factor that makes or breaks my future and career. So my advice to all my comrades out there, take the challenge and excel in your studies

Junk food
Junk food comes in many colours, flavours and types of packaging. Most of it contains very little nutrition. Some are in the form of drinks and others in the form of food and snacks. The drinks are usually colorful and contain a lot of sugar. These drinks can cause diabetes and hyperactivity. Many school kids arc addicted to these drinks and this has become a big problem to our health care system.
   Burgers and fries are another form of junk food that has caught on here. They originate from western countries where the lifestyles need fast and convenient food that is usually fried and coated in sauces. These types of food, which include fried chicken and beef usually have high salt content. This paired with sweet colas is a recipe for disaster. They can lead to obesity and heart disease.
     Other forms of junk food are preserved fruits. They usually come from China and arc known to contain preservatives, artificial colouring and lots of salt or sugar. These preserved snacks are linked to allergies and cancer. Some food colouring can cause asthma.
      Almost all junk food is linked to obesity as it is high in carbohydrate. When we mention junk food, the doughnut is one famous example. They are usually coated, glazed and covered in chocolate, sugar and all sorts of unhealthy colourful toppings. They are not cheap either. So it is an expensive way to diabetes and obesity.
    Another worrying example of junk food that is widely available is candy. Candies of all colours and shapes, flavours and wrappings are found almost everywhere. They are usually cheap and sold in places where there are children and schools. These candies arc found to contain banned substances such as flavouring and colouring. Most are made from sugar and starch. Some have been banned by the Ministry of Health.
    In conclusion, we must educate the public of this huge threat to our health. The younger generation must be informed of the danger and laws must be formulated to lessen the damage it causes.


My favourite teacher
Watching Puan Yap Siew Leng  get into her car is educational; and watching her get out of it is even more so. Mrs Yap , the teacher of Art Class, weighs more than a 100 kg and her car is a new Mini Cooper.  At first sight one would think that it would be impossible for her to get in; but she does so with amazing agility and grace. No sooner does she get out of the car when we see a flock of school children running to greet her as if she were a film star. She will then make her entry into her classroom like a VIP on a visit. 
     As she walks she answers the various questions thrown at her from her young companions. Most of them are students from her present class, but some are her old students. They just happened to be around when Mr s Yap arrived and they could not resist running to her.
       Mrs Yap is  one of the most popular teacher in the school and has been teaching there since its founding in 2002. She has been teaching Secondary 4 and 5 for all these years and has taught thousands of students. Among the students she has taught are several top civil servants, doctors, lawyers and of course teachers. In spite of all her achievements, what makes Mrs Yap  my favourite teacher, and the favourite teacher to many others too, is the fact that she really cares. She cares about all of us equally. She does more than just teach us.
      She knows all her students and ex-students by name and delves into all our personal lives. She can tell with a look that we are unhappy about something. She will then take us aside and talk. She will get to the root of the problem, even seeing the principal or our parents if need be. She will not stop until the problem, whatever it is, is solved and she does it in all sincerity — without expecting anything in return. Is there any wonder then that we all love her?

Coping with Stress
The phenomenon of students under pressure is evident from the behaviour of those students affected. I am a student and I know when my friends are under pressure. Some of those active ones will suddenly turn passive. Some will become too quiet while some tend to get angry fast. 
          There are many ways one can get rid of stress. Firstly, student, especially teenagers, must go for regular exercise. A brisk walk in the park would release a lot of tension. Students should play football, hockey, basketball and badminton to reduce stress.Exercise is also said to relax the body muscles and keep you calm. Students must have hobbies such as reading, collecting stamps, fishing or listening to music of your choice. These leisure activities help keep students free from school-related stress.  
       Therefore, students should plan a time-table. They can also work in groups to solve some of their academic problems. Besides making friends and discussing certain issues, group discussions can help improve study skills. One of these is the ability to make a check-list of all the activities planned and carried out. This in turn will make studying more effective and avoid unnecessary pressure. 
          Students should also have balanced meals and enough sleep. These are said to be basic to healthy lives. Students, especially those in examination classes, must sleep and eat well because a healthy body creates a healthy mind. However, the process of going to sleep can sometimes be difficult. Hence, it is necessary to seek advice from those whom we trust and love. Counsellors in school are helpful but you can always talk to your family first.

        However, if nothing works, there is a need to seek treatment from the relevant authorities. You may be surprised but a friend of mine said that screaming at the mountains and laughing your heart out can take away stress.

IF I WERE A MILLIONAIRE
If I were a millionaire, then my life would take a dramatic turn from what it is now. I would adopt the lifestyle of the rich and famous.
    The first thing that I would do, if I were a millionaire, is to help my parents. My parents are poor and live in a small house. It would be a dream come true if I could buy them a bigger, better and more spacious house. They would also be able to live a life of luxury, as I would be able to hire servants to help my mother with her domestic chores. My father would finally get his well-earned break. He has been selling vegetables in the market all his life and has worked hard. If I become a millionaire, I would ask him to stop working, as he is old and needs to rest. I would not want him to die in harness.
       Money is definitely a boon and can be a friend. My life would change tooI would finally be able to afford to buy better clothes and would even be able to afford some designer labels like Gucci or Channel. Furthermore, I would no longer be seen riding my motorcycle, as I would be driving a fancy car. To maintain this image would mean that I would not be able to socialize with some of my friends at the teh tarik stall. I would now have to dine at the best restaurant in town and rub shoulders with only very special people.
       With more money, I would definitely be able to go on holidays and see the rest of the world. I would finally be able to fulfil a long cherished dream of helping the poor. I would be able to donate to charitable organisations, not only in Malaysia but also in other countries.
     Being a millionaire definitely means having more fun. It also means having a better life and seeing many of my dreams come true. Wealth and riches may not be a bad thing, as it would definitely make me a better person.


Every Household Should Carry Out Recycling

                The planet Earth is a gift. The sources are large in quantities and free of charge. The only payment it ever needed was to care and conserve it. How? One of the ways is by recycling, especially in every household.

                According to a survey, every household creates tons of garbage every year. Most of the junks are surprisingly recyclable such as flyers, kids’ exam papers, used notebooks, and tin cans. This not only creates problem for garbage disposal, it is also a waste. That’s why, recycling at home is crucial and can be very easy to carry out.

                Our Environmental Activists have spread the words regarding recycling and I will share with you the easiest way to do it which is, sorting out the items accordingly. Prepare boxes for papers to put used papers, flyers, books, magazines, and so on. Also prepare boxes for tin cans, plastics, and glasses. It’s as easy as ABC so all you need to do now is just do it!

                When boxes of recyclables began piling up at home, continue to deliver them to the recycling center. My school is lucky to have recycling dumpster. Instead of the teachers throwing all the past years reports and papers, they can just put them in the said dumpster then the people in charge will take them away.

                I hope my humble essay will be able to encourage you and your family to start recycling at home. Rome was not built in a day, so as our attitude towards helping to conserve the environment. One box of recyclables at a time can make a big change for our future generations.

The Importance of Studying English   

            It is a big concerned for teenagers nowadays as they are unaware of the importance of English language as they tend to ignore to learn the language. Students’ attitude towards the language is also crucial to make sure that these teenagers can face the future world better by learning English language as it is an international language.

            First and foremost, English will definitely help you a lot when you want to further studies. Almost all books at university are written in English in all subjects. Plus, it is a compulsory for any candidate to pass English with credit before entering any universities. So, if you are poor in English, you will blow you chance for better education or worse, you are going to have a big problem studying at university.

            The second reason why you have to study English well is that it will help you to get a job. When you go for a job interview, the interviewer will surely talk to you in English. The first impression you should give in order to success and have the job is, to respond in English fluently. Your chances of getting the job are very slim if you stutter while interviewing.

            A good command in of English will also help you greatly in your job. If the company you work is actively involved in international trade, you have to speak to prospective customers in English. Miscommunication might occur if your English is bad. And this will put your company at risk and you will likely be dismissed if this happen.

            Good English will also help you a lot when you travel. Every country in the world studies English. Even the roadside stall-holders in China speak fairly good English! At least some of the people you meet on your travels in other countries can understand English. The language is certainly practical when you are lost in your trip. Communication problem will not happen if you can converse well in English. Inevitably, English is one of the languages used in any airport in the world in making announcement. Knowing English well, therefore, make travelling overseas easier.

            Besides all these, entertainment is one of the major advantages you will experience if you good in English. You will enjoy television’s best programmes. We must admit that many of the best programmes are produced by the Americans and British companies. High self confidence influenced by the programmes will indirect inculcate in yourself when you are fluent in the language. Quality time is worthily spent if you understand and enjoy the programmes.

            Based from all the above elaboration, I hope that students will see the importance and realise how importance the language is for their own future. Although it is a second language in our country, it is now a main language all over the world.



How to Lead a Healthy Lifestyle

They tend to forget about their health in order to accomplish everything within a short span of time. This  will eventually take its toll on the students themselves. Hence, I would like to share some tips on how to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Therefore, an overall improvement in yourself will be noticeable if you have an honest friend.

  The Night Market  - Tanah Merah Kelantan

One of the most interesting places in Tanah Merah Malaysia is the night market. You may visit and experience the night market yourselves. Both locals and foreigners agree that the night market is the most common feature in the local society.

    The night market ata Tanah Merah begins when the vendors arrive in the late afternoon. More and more goods laden vans arrive to begin a brisk day of business. Most of the vendors busily set out to set up their stalls respectively in order to get ready for a brisk day of business.

     The sun gradually sets and the night market picks up momentum. More cars and vans are arriving. By now, the stalls are neatly and strategically arranged to entice their customers. There is an   assortment of goods sold ranging from food, toys and clothes, to name a few. A variety of goods is sold at low prices.

Sprinklings of tourists join in to experience the lifestyle of typical Malaysian folks.

     When night falls, lighted lamps brighten up the place, they add gaiety to this atmosphere, and it is like a funfair. The night wears on and the traffic of people recedes. Vendors get a chance to rest their weary legs besides bantering with each other.
